Working out is not my favorite thing. In fact, it’s one of my least favorite things right up there with folding laundry and bathing my children. But like those other two chores, it is something that needs to be done. A job in blogging doesn’t exactly get the heart pumping so exercise is a must. But it doesn’t mean I have to like it!
In fact, if I’m going to have to workout when I don’t want to I might as well be snarky about it! So I created some Passive Aggressive Workout Gear to make me feel better about one of my least favorite chores using heat transfer vinyl and adhesive vinyl from Expressions Vinyl. I would much rather eat than workout so I centered my snarky comments as such.

Head and wrist sweatbands
Remember: Flip images/words horizontally for heat transfer!
Place heat transfer vinyl face down (color side down) on the cutting mat. Once the phrases are cut, carefully peel back the negative space.
Since the headband and wristbands stretch, go ahead and stretch them a bit before ironing on the htv. I did this by wrapping them around a piece of cardboard. Carefully place the htv on the band and apply heat. Allow to cool then peel back the plastic.
I made the adhesive vinyl lettering for the yoga mat pretty large and was only using a 12×12 sheet of vinyl so I cut the sentence into two halves and applied them one at a time to the top of the mat using Transfer Tape. Smooth letters on well.
You can see that the mat is textured but the vinyl stuck pretty well. I made sure to apply it to a low contact area at the very edge of the mat. It should stay for a long while. AND I was able to express my love of tacos. If this doesn’t make me smile while I listen to Jillian, I don’t know what will!
