Game Gear and I purchased it on Amazon for $15. I comes in 16 different colors so you have a variety to choose from. I ordered a size medium as I always do with sports bras and to my surprise it was too loose around the waist as you can see in the photos below. I decided to keep it and just pinch it in on the sides with my sewing machine, something that I have to do to all of my jeans.

90 Degrees by Reflex that I purchased on Amazon for $19.99 but I like them and that's all that matters! I'm on a mission to get all the colors that I like because the quality of these legging are so nice and they come all the way up to my navel which I love. My hat was also purchased on Amazon here, it comes in 17 different colors for $10.50/ea.

This is my first purchase from the 90 Degrees by Refles Power Flex Racerback Tank Top collection on Amazon. These tanks come in 40 different colors and the cost is $12.99/ea. I ordered only one in Heather Magenta because I wanted to see how well it fitted. Since I only wear these to the gym, I like then really snug around my small waist. I ordered a size X-small to fit my waist instead of my boobs, I'm a 34DD up top but when it comes to fitness/active wear, I have to go down a size to fit my waist. I really like the quality of this tank and to be honest, the quality and fabric is on the same level as my Nike tank tops.

When I saw these Vesi Star Capri pants on Amazon for the price of $16.99, I though no way, what are they made of! Of course my curiosity got the best of me so I decided to order two pairs (photo of the pink at the bottom), they also come in 5 different very bright colors. To my surprise they are fabulous! They are made of a very thick cotton/lycra and are very stretchable. The only come in two sizes S/M & L/XL. I ordered the S/M and when I first took them out of the package, I thought (no way) are these going to fit... they looked tiny!

These abstract leggings are similar to the other ones reviewed here, they are also from "90 Degrees by Reflex" bought on Amazon. I ordered these also in an X-small and they did not come all the way up on my waist, but they do fit really snug. My reasoning for ordering an X-small (even though I wear a small) is so they can sit really tight on my waist, but these sit low (even though they are sussposed to be high-waisted) because they are too small. So when ordering the pattern prints... order your true size! The solids seem to work for me in an X-small, I have 4 pairs in Black and 1 pair in Grey.... you can find my review of them here.

I happened to ask a friend how she got so many full profile great selfies on her IG page and she said she props her cell phone upright on a stand and sets the timer on her camera for 10secs. How did I not know this! This is a game changer for me now because I have always taken the time to set up my Sony on a tripod and take photos in my backyard. Besides the fact that my iPhone 6 takes lousy photos, I will still be able to capture the moments when I come home from the gym and want to do some fitness checks.

One of my favorite pastimes is scrolling through all the beautiful photos of women in fitness on Instagram. One thing's for sure, they are totally inspirational and have the best gym outfits to flaunt all those sexy muscles. My goals hasn't been to become a fitness competitor but to become close as possible looking like one. It just seems like I workout harder when i'm looking cute although when I wear this to the gym, I'll wear a matching tank top over it. This outfit came from TLF Apparel and you can find some inspirational photos on their Instagram page here. They're mostly photos of fitness models and that's why i'm hear to review them for you!

I follow a lot (an extremely unhealthy amount) of fitness people on Instagram and a lot of them are quite younger than myself. I love everything about them from their toned abs right down to the food pics they post... its just sheer motivation for me if nothing else. But lately I've become obsessed with all the new fitness wear or active wear that these young ladies seem to be wearing.... I mean i'm crushing really hard because they look really good and I'm sure they feel really good wearing it.

I the last time I posted a side by side photo was back in January, I had fell off my diet over the holidays and I wasn't too happy with myself. So I picked up where I left off and continued on the same nutritional program that I was on prior to the holidays arriving. Pretty much all I was doing was limiting my sugar intake. I am literally avoiding products that contains sugar.... it is the only way that my body will move fat.

Every girl needs a great pair of leggings that speak volumes, hugs every curve and turns heads without even trying. That's exactly what these High-Waisted Yoga Pants from Missfit Activewear did when I wore them to the gym. I knew I was looking cute and when i'm feeling cute i'm definitely feeling more confident and I lift heavier and work harder... which is my ultimate goals.

I have been seeing quite a few of the younger ladies in my gym wearing these high-waisted leggings and I always wondered where they found them. I started doing a little of my own research and low and behold I found them here on Amazon for $22 a pair. The name of them is "90 Degrees by Reflex" and they are very comfortable and quite thick. I actually did a photo below bending over so you can see that you absolutely can not see through them.

Gym life is quickly becoming that #gymlife hashtag that I see many bodybuilders that I follow on Instagram using on their post. It's because everything about that person evolves around their #gymlife. My wardrobe is 75% fitness wear and 25% other. My fitness wear is very fashionable and it's what I wear daily (Monday - Friday) because I spend 2hrs in the gym everyday. I can go run all kinds of errands.... grocery shopping.... clothes shopping.., makeup shopping, etc. in my #gymlife clothes and not even miss a beat.
