With the London 2012 Olympics gearing up, it's hard not to feel inspired. I mean, these superhuman athletes train their entire lives, pushing their bodies to their ultimate limits with the hopes of eventually grasping that glorious gold to bring hope and joy to their respective nations. Meanwhile, the couch is my own little podium, complete with my laptop and a bag of chips. I occasionally nod my head or do a little fistpump and sure, my heart races while I watch the games, but it's entirely due to excitement, not because of any physical exertion on my part whatsoever. With 2 toddlers running around the house and a busy work schedule, I just can't seem to find the time (or the energy) to get my run on.
Well, no more I say! I might not make it to the Olympics (might not? okay, will not, like, ever..) but all this talk of athletic prowess and rippling, muscle-bound bodies is making me feel awfully static. I don't know about you but between London 2012 and all the cute workout wear out there this season, I'm feeling inspired to get back in shape.
These cute fitness finds should have you breaking a sweat in no time. And if all else fails, just tune into the men's swim events. Um, just me or is it getting hot in here?
