I’ve always been really into fitness and regardless of how busy my schedule may be, I try to always make time to fit in a workout (I usually shoot for at least 3-4 times a week). I joined OrangeTheory earlier this year and it’s been an addiction and definitely is one of my fitness favorites! The cardio workouts are pretty intense (which I love) and it’s a great combination of strength and cardio since weights are included too! I also add in vinyasa yoga classes 1-2 times on the weekends and it’s perfect to let me decompress after a tough week juggling work, kids, and blog responsibilities. I’ve also added in more core work in the past few weeks that I’ll be sharing more about next week, but for today, I wanted to share a few new fitness favorites — cause there’s nothing that helps motivate me to workout more than new clothes (and lately, new technology too!).
Top: Lululemon All Tied Up Tank
worn with Lululemon Fast & Free Bra
Bottom: Lululemon Wunder Under Hi-Rise 1/2 Tight
Shoes: Nike ‘Free’ (old, similar, similar)
Watch: Apple Watch Series 2 38mm in pink
Ok, I couldn’t help but start off my fitness favorites list with this super cute pic with my Mei! We’ve been having a fair share of 100+ degree temperatures and had popped into a Jamba Juice. They have a limited-edition summer smoothie called the Poolside Fit that I’ve been loving which is pre-boosted with collagen and is super refreshing with cucumbers, watermelon, and strawberry! I got a kids’ peach mango drink for Mei but this girl tried my drink and wouldn’t give it back! Good thing she’s cute. ; )
This workout tank / pants combination has seriously been on repeat and it’s so comfy! I had popped into the Lululemon store a few weeks ago looking for a new top to wear for yoga and one of the sales associates there actually recommended this one after I initially passed it up. She had said that people go crazy for it when it’s in stock and after trying it on, I can understand why! The front is simple but I love that it ties together in the back (see pic below).
I love tops with open-back details and especially adding a pop of unexpected color! I love that this tank lets me stay completely covered in front while letting my backside breathe — it’s been great for keeping cool during all my workouts and doesn’t ride up on me either!
If you’re a runner and like to have your tunes on you, you need this tank! I’ve never liked having my phone on my arm as it bounces around and inevitably leaves a weird tan line. This tank has a pocket in the back to fit my phone and it’s so convenient!! It fits my iPhone 6S Plus perfectly, doesn’t bounce around, and I can run hands free! There’s a hole that allows you to thread your headphones through but I’ve been using these wireless Bluetooth headphones from Sudio Sweden. The white / rose gold color is beautiful and the sound quality is amazing! And best part, the ear buds actually stay in place (it comes with 4 different earbud size options to ensure a proper fit).

And finally on e my fitness favorites list, you may have noticed that I’ve been wearing an Apple Watch lately in my photos and I’m absolutely loving it! Adrian gifted it to me for my birthday last month and I’ve slowly been learning how to use all the different features. So far, my favorite has been the fact that I can text message with it just by talking into it (it translates into actual text!) and I can update my todo list without using my phone (I’ve been using the Things 3 app!). I’m still learning though, so if any of you have an Apple Watch and love a certain feature, let me know!
