When I woke up this morning, I already had my outfit picked out.

  • Lululemon Energy Bra
  • Lululemon Pace Tight (Bottoms)
  • And my favorite pair of Vibrams (Footwear)

Shirt Optional.

Today was the 3rd Annual Sports Bra Challenge by SEAK Foundation, and I’ve been preparing for this event since last April (literally).

As I entered Union Square Park today… I started to think about how much has happened since last year- friendships gained, opportunities developed, pounds shed, and all of the people I’ve met through lululemon.

You may not have realized this, but one year ago… I didn’t know a soul in NYC. After spending two years in Milan, followed by a tour around the world… I had grown quite comfortable with my nomadic lifestyle. Returning to civilization, standards, and expectations frightened me; so I spent the first two months in NYC eating “comfort food”.

My diet consisted of 2 desserts a day, zero exercise, and self-led food tours around NYC. After a few weeks of restaurant food and specialty cupcakes, I felt heavy, lost and completely uninspired. It only took my sister a day to pick up on my strange behavior… so she planted the idea to apply for a part-time job.

Unfocused and out of sorts, I growled at her for even considering the idea. Didn’t she know I was in the middle of brainstorming ideas for a lucrative business of my very own??

Two days later… I was on the internet searching for “real jobs” + “positive work environment” + “Lululemon Athletica”.

Lululemon helped me cope with my transition. I started to take responsibility for my body and actions by setting goals. I limited my sugar intake and started to workout with my new friends at lululemon as soon as I saw my midriff during the 2nd Annual Sports Bra Challenge.

Fast forward to today and its officially been one year since I joined Lululemon Athletica… and I feel better than ever. #triple-selfie #thinkbathingsuittop
