I started my GET HEALTHY journey on January 17th, and I’m officially down 21 pounds.
I’ve had several people comment on how amazing this is (which is very sweet)…
but I’ll tell you what is amazing…..
the fact that I gain and lose the same 20 pounds every single year.
It’s so dumb. 🙂
But it’s just what I do.
Every year after I lose the weight, I feel so great that I convince myself I’m not going to gain it back.
And yet every single year, I DO.
THIS YEAR IS GOING TO BE DIFFERENT.
Did you hear that? I’m DECLARING it! 🙂
I’m going to set a goal. A goal I think I can reach.
Instead of gaining back all 20 pounds, I’m going to try my best to not gain more than 10 of it back.
And here’s the deal. I want you to know that I am fully aware that sounds ridiculous to those of you that are able to maintain a reasonable weight all the time…
but to those of you that are like me, you totally get it.
Anyway, I think gaining no more than 10 back is an attainable goal, and I plan on sticking to it.
So, today I thought I would do a combo WORK-OUT gear and GET HEALTHY wrap up!
It’s only the end of April, so there is still time to get in shape for summer!
Hey, if I can do it, anybody can do it. 🙂
You girls know that I fell in love with Zella work out gear back in January. I’d been hearing about it from y’all since I started the blog, and when I finally did a post on Zella HERE, I was hooked!
And I would like to issue my formal apology that I should have listened to you ladies sooner.
The Zella LIVE IN LEGGINGS are FABULOUS.
And I actually credit them for some of the weight loss. I truly feel that getting up in the mornings and putting on my new cute gear made it easier to take the first step towards working out: just getting dressed!
I got lots of you ladies to try them too, and I promise that we could now start our own online
Live In Leggings Fan Club.
So, when Nordstrom asked me to talk about Nike work-out gear, I was unsure because I knew they couldn’t top my Zella leggings.
But then I hopped online and found LOTS that I wanted to try!
You see, although Zella is still my GO TO for leggings (and I also love their Deja jackets), I never found shorts or tanks that I loved, and I was just wearing some from Target and Old Navy. They were fine, but I didn’t love them.
So…I thought I would try shorts, tank, shoes, and a pullover from Nike
And I’m sooooooooooo glad I gave them a try!
Look how bright and fun the pieces are!
1/2 zip HERE / dri-fit tank HERE / shorts HERE / shoes HERE /
$8 light pink studs HERE*
*We should probably go ahead and name these the official PTMT earring.
Throw them on for errands, the mall, dinner with friends, church, the pool, and for working out.
And if we’re being honest, throw them on for a night out on the town too.
Not many earrings can go from the gym to church, but these can.
I’m telling you. They’re THAT good.
SMALL in the pullover / MEDIUM in the tank / SMALL in the shorts / shoes run true to size

The pullover comes in 6 colors and has 81 5 STAR REVIEWS.
I absolutely LOVE the pullover. It’s a great weight and it just feels good on. And the bright happy colors that are available are so fun! I will definitely be wearing these for years to come.
The shorts (that also come in black) are great too! They have built in underwear and aren’t too tight, and I think the highlighter yellow color is awesome.
(More on the tank and the shoes later in the post.)
Please note that when Chris holds the phone up at a high angle to take a picture that I immediately lose 5 pounds.
And here are the clothes from all sides.
(I’m wearing an old sports bra from Target, but Nike has several to choose from HERE.)
They run true to size, and I big puffy heart love them.
Click HERE for the shoes!
When I wrote this post they were 15% OFF as a result of price matching. I’m hoping they still are!
That’s a good looking shoe.
Doesn’t it make you want to run a marathon?
Yeah, me either.
But I do love putting them on in the morning!
Now for a close up of the tank.
I have mixed feelings about the tank.
I really love the color (there are 6 total to choose from), and I also think the Nike swoosh is fun.
However, the tank is very fitted.
A little too fitted for my taste.
I got the small at first and OH MY at the bulges and ripples. 😉
The medium was better, but I still didn’t love it.
If you do love a super fitted tank, you’ll definitely love this one! Still, I would suggest sizing up.
I also tried a tank that was made to be more loose!
This one is different than any others I own, but I like it a lot!
