Sweat it Out!

Hello lovely Basically Bre readers! I'm Jamie and I blog over at Southern Simplicity. I am a 22 year old college student gearing up to take my victory lap as I enter my 5th {& final} year of college. I am studying to become an Elementary school teacher all while waiting for my man to put a ring on it ;) 

I don't know about the rest of you college girls and recent grads but it is dang near impossible to get everything we want done in a day. I, of course, am guilty of blogging, pinteresting (??), facebooking, twittering, and watching way too much reality t.v instead of doing things that I should be working out. BUT recently I have been realizing how important it is to maintain a structured work out schedule! So to get me motivated I started investing in some new workout gear!
My daddy is a big time runner--he runs 5 & 10k's every weekend and several half marathons a year. The guy is nuts when it comes to fitness and nutrition. Right now I am training with him to run my first ever 10k (that's 6.2 flippin miles!!!) The race is in 1 short week and I have really had to up my workout schedule to keep up with my training. So I thought it would be fun today to share with y'all what I like to wear when I am running or working out.

I am a firm believer that good workout clothes make you want to work out more! A new dry fit tank will ALWAYS put me in the mood for a run! I have put together a board of some of my favorites…

1-Dry fit tanks: Perfect for running! 
2-Asics: My go to running shoes
3-Shorter/tighter Nike shorts: I love running in these!
4-Regular Nike shorts: perfect for the gym
5-Shorter Nike shorts: these are great for runs or for the gym
6-Nike tennis shoes: love these for the gym (it isn't good to wear the same shoes you run in while you're at the gym.. you should have a running pair and a gym pair)
7- Regular racer back tanks: I wear these to the gym
8-Nike sports bra: a good sports bra is KEY!!
I hope some of this was helpful to y'all! Just get you some new gear & I promise it will make working out much more fun  ;)


  1. cute workout clothes totally make me more motivated to get out there!! or at least look the cutest walking on the treadmill reading US weekly ;)

  2. I love those tanks too and I recently got a pair of Asics and am in loooove with them! The bright pink laces dont hurt either!
