wunder under challenge: day 5


I'm on day 5 into this challenge and it hasn't been as hard as I thought it would be! I know tights in general are pretty easy to wear, but every day? We'll see how I feel on day 15. I have a few co-workers who are concerned with my hygiene and I've had to reassure them that I am washing the bottoms as needed.

I'm off to Hatha yoga today, which is my favourite type. I love the pace and the calming effect it has on me as a whole, something I am craving after the hustle and bustle of the holidays.

The lululemon pieces getting me through the day:
-Wunder Under Crop
-Swift Tank


The Swift Tank is one of my favourites. The hidden pocket sewn into the back is perfect for my tunes on the go when I use it for running. Tip of the day: I like to keep my mp3 player covered with a silicone skin to protect it from moisture.

Need more reasons to love the Wunder Unders? Other than the versatility, it's the stretch factor that gets me. Four-way stretch means I can sit every which way during the day and the knees and bum won't bag out.


Something that I'm totally enjoying from the challenge is figuring out ways to wear my workout gear underneath my day clothes. I don't think I ever explored this possibility so thoroughly before and it's helped a lot. Less in my bag is less weight I have to carry which always makes for a happier me at the end of the day.

Looks like someone has a Magic Bullet! I love those things. Great job on the challenge. I like seeing the different options you are coming up with. Too bad I’m in banking and can’t wear all my Lulu to work. I do sneak some in on casual Friday though! :)

Hey Dellis and Marisa, I have actually never tried shorts with my Wunder Under’s but there’s always a first! Thanks for the idea!

Loving that bag! What is that one called?

Comment by Avery — January 26, 2010 @ 7:52 pm

Hi Avery, the bag is the Lucky Tote. It’s not available online anymore but if you have a store near you, I would go in and see if they have any left. Or check with the GEC and see if they can help you locate one through phone orders: 1-877-263-9300 Mon-Fri 6:00am-7:00pm PST, Sat-Sun 6:00am-6:00pm PST.

Have a great day!
