Lipstick at the Gym?

I've mentioned my lipstick obsession before, so it shouldn't be a shocker to learn that I wear lipstick to the gym.  I do get some looks from people surely shocked that my red lips are blazing, but the rest of me is a site for sore eyes.

I've never been one to dress up to work out.  I'm lucky to leave the house in an old pair of sweatpants and an over-sized t-shirt, which may or may not be a men's shirt, with or without holes.  It's quite embarrassing.

Of course people watching is something I do everywhere, and the gym certainly has it's share of people to watch.  I've been noticing the ladies around the gym wearing matching tanks and pants.  They look cute.  I decided I want to look cute too.  So of course I went on a shopping trip.  I hit up Old Navy to see what goodies I could find. What great luck I had, as all of their active wear is currently on sale so I loaded up:

I purchased this shirt in three colors.

I was wishing they had this shirt in other colors, but it was only available in Grey, so I bought it.

Best of all - all of the above shirts were on sale for $10.

As for pants, I ended up buying a few different styles:

Compression Capri

Compression Legging

Flare Leg Compression Pant

The pants were on sale too, ranging from $10 to $18.

My favorite buy is the compression jacket.  I can wear this to the gym, or even with jeans.  It's a great color and the fit is perfect.

The coats were $25, which is high, but the fact I can wear it often, made it worth the money.

Do you "dress" up to go to the gym? What about makeup - is it a yes or a no?

Oh, and if you were wondering how I was doing on my weight loss journey, I'm down 2 lbs. this week. It's not a huge amount, but I'm glad to finally see the scale moving in the right direction!

I am SO ugly at the gym! I'm embarrassed for myself when I go the gym. No makeup and crappy gym clothes. I think I need to work on this.

I love everything you bought! I need to make a trip to ON!

Ha Ha- I don't go to the gym!!! Not kidding, don't think I've ever been. It wouldn't hurt me any though.

Yay for 2 pounds...It's a good start!
