Motivation Monday: #OldNavy and #crowdtap Sample and Share: Active wear

So I thought this Monday I would do something a little different. I have two parts to Motivation Monday. The first will be basically a review and the second post will be a giveaway! Woo-hoo!

So my weight loss journey continues to yo-yo. I was doing great for awhile and I lost 5 lbs. Then I stopped working out, for various reasons, and I gained back 7lbs. I still haven't been working out like I should but I have been trying to eat better and I've lost 7 lbs. So now I'm right back to that first loss. 145lbs. My goal is still 135lbs by the time my husband gets back from deployment. Thanks to Crowdtap and Old Navy I was able to participate in a sample share where I got to shop Old Navy's new active wear line and get a pair of compression pants and an active wear top for free! Gotta love it! It's perfect timing with my whole needing to get into shape!

Lucky me, when I went to Old Navy all the active wear clothing was on sale! And I mean a great sale. I just knew that no matter what I picked out I was going to end up buying more! I picked up the pants and I was a little scared to try them on. They were pretty tight looking and I just knew that I was going to look like a balloon in them. However, when I tried them on I was pleasantly surprised. They made my butt look like J Lo (I'm not a woman who is afraid of a big booty) and my thighs didn't look as bad as I thought. And they felt great! Now the tops were a big surprise. I knew I wanted a hoodie. I tried one on to match the pants I picked up and it felt great. The only problem was the top highlighted my problem area! My stomach! You can see my little pouch and at first I was a little bit disappointed. I'm used to wearing a sports bra and a loose shirt when I work out. Perfect for hiding imperfections. Yet, as I sat there and thought about it, here was my motivation. My problem spot is highlighted. Now I know what I really need to work on and I will be able to visually see the results! I'm so excited to get back to working out full time like I need to!  And of course I took pictures! Check them out below. And yes I did end up getting both of the outfits! I couldn't resist for such an awesome price!


So basically you can see the two outfits and I just wanted to point out the awesome little hand cover on the sleeves. I love to put my hands in the sleeves like that so it's perfect for me. Great for running on those chilly days! And you can't tell but I'm sucking in on those pictures. I didn't want to see my little pouch...LOL.

If you think getting to try out clothes and products for free is cool or if you like sharing your opinion on all sorts of topics then you really should consider joining Crowdtap! It's awesome! There is so much to participate in and this is the 3rd or 4th Sample Share I have participated in. Just head on over HERE to join! And if you have any questions just ask me! =)
