fitness haul


A few weekends ago, I was determined to go through my closet and my dresser to move out things that don’t fit, things I don’t wear, things just taking up space. I tried to be ruthless, and I knew it would take more than one cull to move out the things I have an emotional attachment to, and I was right. I still have one more closet run to go through (and I need to attack the dresser…) but I was able to free up a lot of hangers on the first pass!

Since Thanksgiving, I’ve been trying to rebuild my closet. Replace things that are worn out (so why am I still wearing my favorite sweater, even though it has a hole in it?) or things that don’t fit anymore. It’s been a blessing and a curse, surely, but at least shopping for new clothes is fun (most of the time). Plus wearing cute outfits makes it so much easier to go to the gym 🙂

I love looking at hauls and seeing what other people are getting and while I had all my new workout gear laid out, I thought I’d post another. My last mini-fitness haul is one of my most popular posts, and I really got great deals on (almost) everything. I will try to add links if things are still available/price things out in case anyone is interested. (My SD card is MIA, so these photos are all via my iPhone. Apologies!) Check it out:

As you can see, I have no excuse to go shopping for awhile! But being a new runner means I had to stock up on a LOT of things, because I couldn’t find very good deals last year (nor was I really looking for cold weather gear.) Some things I picked up solely to be throwaways, and some of it (all of the lulu gear except the CRB plus a few other things) were gifts from my mom. She honestly went sort of crazy on Black Friday.

I have noticed a lot of places lately making lululemon-lookailke things. The gray Old Navy t-shirt is a lot like the Swiftly, as is the purple long-sleeve Gap shirt. The Gap shorts are very Speed Short-like. This is good because you a) don’t have to shop at lululemon (despite the amount I just shelled out on all that gear, I still hate their company…) and b) don’t have to shell out all that cash. There are a few things that I might return (I’m not sure if I love those lucy leggings, and I know I don’t love the Amped crop, so I will try to sell them) but I am overall very happy with what I got and what I spent.

As you can see, I did get some really great deals! $3 for shorts? $4 and $8 dollars for pullovers and crops? Yes please! I am CRAZY about GapFit and Old Navy Active, and lucked upon 50% off sale styles at Gap as well as pairing 20% off Old Navy clearance with an additional 20% off coupon.

The “Running Wild” tank is for NP and I as we run Tink on Sunday! We were getting very stressed about what we were going to wear or who we were going to dress up as, and when I saw these, I knew that was it. I’m going to try to get my hair to sit in a crazy teased mess on my head and maybe wear a tiara as well. I’m sure I’m going to add to my collection and go wild at the expo.. but hey, at least I made some room for it.

What’s your best fitness gear score? Where do you prefer to shop?

    Nice haul, indeed! I love when that happens. Old Navy’s Active line is great and is well priced even when it’s not on sale (most items, anyway). I didn’t see any items from Target – they have great sales, too. I’ve gotten two high impact running bras from the clearance rack for $9, several tops, and a few other random things.

    Great job on all those deals! I also own those Old Navy cropped compression leggings and the Running Wild tank! I went there last weekend and with a sale and one of my coupons from my Old Navy card I got both of them for less than $10! I’m a sucker for huge deals like this 🙂

    Great finds! I’m super jealous of all your workout wear now. I feel like I am perpetually doing laundry because of all the workout clothes!

      That’s why I caved and started buying so many new things! Felt like I was doing laundry every other day.

    I know it was a while ago but nice haul:) You got some killer deals!!! Did you get most of this on Black Friday?

      Actually most of it was regular sales! The only Black Friday stuff was mostly the lululemon stuff, and even it wasn’t on a special sale beyond their normal markdowns.
