Orange: Fit Color for October

TLF ApparelIf you are looking for some new unique fitness wear that is high quality and a great flattering cut, you need to check out TLF Apparel. I just discovered them a couple of months ago and I am so impressed with their clothing line.

MY OUTFIT FOR OCTOBER

My latest outfit, in “Hot Coral” (which is a cool orange color), is a winner! I love the cut of the bra top, which is high enough in front that is shows up under most tank tops. This makes it easy and fun to layer clothing to add color and style to any outfit – even my work uniform top (which is my Max tank top here).

THE COLOR

Hot Coral is the name of this color. It’s not pumpkin orange, but it’s definitely orange (and orangier than it appears in this pic). It’s a cool orange with a hint of coral in it. However, it seems to match all my clothes that have electric orange or coral accents. The vibrant color really brightenes up other solids, like black, grey and white. “Hot coral” is great for fall, but bright enough to go all year long. LOVE IT!

BETTER WITH BLING

Both pieces have a really pretty blinged logo which adds a bit of class and “prettiness” to each pice.

STYLE

If you like ORANGE, then here are some TLF pieces I loved…

Casual comfy layer that keeps you cool with this “air-conditioning back”. Love this!

This first grey tank with the orange logo is the tank I got to layer over my orange outfit. It’s a great fit and has a little “dressier” feel than the above tank. This is a great outfit for people who like to look sharp (perfect for trainers and fitness professionals). The Infi-Dry fabric keeps you from looking like a wet rat after a hard workout – and dries fast too.

Reward Yourself with Confidence, Not Food

reward yourselfMany times, when people are on a diet, they reward themselves with a nice dinner out or “cheat weekend”, but what about rewarding yourself with nice clothes that support your fitness goals? We would easily blow $50 on dinner without blinking an eye, but why not invest in your confidence and goals?

When I first got married and fell off the fitness train, I dreaded going back to the gym – as the fatter version of me. I felt fat and ugly, and knew people would notice how I had “let myself go”. I wore crappy workout clothes because I didn’t have any cute ones to fit my heavier body. As I lost weight, I began to reward myself with cuter tops and accessories. The closer I reached my goals, the more goodies I got – and the more excited I was about going to the gym.

Changing the way you reward yourself is one way to help boost your self-esteem to help you feel your best as you are working toward your goals. It worked for me – and it can work for you!

Here is a sneak peak of Ellie‘s Bon Voyage Collection, the newest monthly collection.

10 Tips for Goal Setting:

  • Set clear defined goals each week – this can be based on attendance, diet or weight
  • Set clear defined goals each month – this should be results based
  • Decide what has to be done to reach those goals
  • Determine a specific reward for each goal or task met
  • Reward yourself weekly with something small – like a fitness magazine or new music
  • Reward yourself monthly with something bigger, like a new outfit or fitness accessory
  • Create a “consolation prize”, like a smaller reward for those times you missed your goal, but didn’t give up or backslide, so you don’t get discouraged
  • Share your goals with friends for added accountability
  • Constantly remind yourself where you will be if you reach your goals each week.
  • Keep your eye on the prize! Post your goals, pictures and motivation where you can see it multiple times through out the day.

The Fit Gift the Keeps On Giving

MEN: Listen up, because this is one very cool gift idea!!
WOMEN: If you like new clothes, and you like to save, this is for you!

I recently was asked to preview PVbody. At that time, that meant nothing to me. So, I did a little research, dove in to their site, and quickly became intrigued. It is a monthly fitness outfit subscription. Basically, for only $49.95/month, you get a new workout outfit valued at over $100 to fit your personal fitness style and workouts.

Surprise!

pv body

One thing I love about PVbody is the element of surprise. While working for brands, I’ve been shipped all kinds of stuff I probably would have never picked out myself – and low and behold, I LOVE them. This element of surprise has become really fun for me. I love not knowing what is coming. It’s literally like a gift every single month – and I can’t wait to open it!!

Here is my first outfit. It is exactly something I’d buy – and the colors, style and cut were perfect! The capris were made of a really nice quality material that I can tell won’t fade and will hold form nicely. The top is a really bright coral (you can’t tell that in this pic) and has a ghost design on it, meaning a pattern in the same color so it appears as a solid at first, but it does have a design. All in all, it’s a winner!

What if you don’t like what you get? 
You can return it! They have a great customer satisfaction policy and are dedicated to making you one happy fitness camper! You can also pause or cancel your subscription at any time, so there’s no real stress. You are fully in control. Check it out & let me know if you join the PVbody family!
