Today was scheduled to be Day 11 of our 12 Days of Diva, and was supposed to feature Gifts for the Fitness Queen. Two of my fabulous guest bloggers for this event, Plus Model Chenese Lewis and beauty blogger Brittany of ClumpsofMascara.com were great in offering two suggestions in activewear. And I originally had my own ideas for what I was going to look for when it came to some cool gifts for those ladies who believe that fitness comes in all sizes.
However, as I searched all of my various sites and resources, I was a little disappointed in what I came across in terms of cute athletic wear. Granted, if you are getting all sweaty, who cares what you look like, right? Well, I do. I see our skinny counterparts in adorable matching outfits that are full of bright and vibant colors. Why can't ours be the same? There's one company that I love--Junonia--that has some great clothing for a variety of sports (e.g. tennis, yoga, even surfing). Alwaysforme.com had a few cute things, including one of my picks which you will see below. But other than that? The pickings were slim (no pun intended).
So, while I present our Gifts for the Fitness Queen, I'd love to hear from any of you out there who are fabulously fat and fit. Where do you get your workout gear? What tips would you offer?
