In June, my son and I started walking. I wanted the exercise and it gave us a chance to get some fresh air. The air was still cool in the morning, so we were able to walk two miles before 10am or 11am. As the weather got hotter, I found myself not wanting to even step outside.
A few weeks ago, I started working out inside. I wanted to get back into my cardio workouts! I was all motivated and doing my workouts for about a week! And then vertigo hit!
Now that I am finally feeling a little better with my vertigo (I still have the symptoms), we started walking again! It is never too late to start anew with your fitness and health! My son and I go for our walk every morning. I try to walk before 10am because by then it’s already 80+ degrees!
When my health doesn’t keep me from working out, I try to keep myself motivated with new clothes to wear when we walk!
When I first started working out, I didn’t really have any workout clothing. I found myself wearing pajamas. These days, I buy workout clothes when I can or when I need to buy pieces for a change in weather or when my style changes.
When I saw the Heat Maximizing Full Coverage Racer-back Tank, I knew I wanted to try it. Why not maximize my results with each workout?! After wearing it for a few workouts, I realize that it would best be suited for my mom. The sizing is too small for me (my fault). Plus, I think she will appreciate it more. She has a gym membership and everything.
Also, the tag says you need to hand wash in cold water. I don’t have the patience to do that (my son has special needs and takes up so much of our time and energy).
Same with the Heat Maximizing Capris. Don’t get me wrong, they are super cute! If I had chosen the right size (I know, I need lose weight and I’m working on that) the clothes would be so cute and perfect!
My mom will love the capris! She can look fashionable at the gym!
I am also hesitant to wear both pieces due to my vertigo and diet. I get dizzy pretty easily (I’m a vegetarian as well). I would hate to risk getting dizzy and overheated!

Overall, both the Heat Maximizing Full Coverage Racer-back Tank and the Heat Maximizing Capris are adorable! The colors and designs are eye-catching! My mom will have people at her gym wondering where she got these pieces!
It may be the wrong season to even think about a fleece hoody, but the Hazelton Hooded Jacket is too stylish not to share! It is lightweight and form fitting (read: cute)! I seriously can’t wait until the weather cools down to wear my new fleece! It is perfect for going for a walk in cool weather!
When it comes to intense workouts, I find myself with sore muscles! Sometimes, sore muscles make me want to skip my workout the next day. Which is why I use bath products that are great for my mind, body, and soul!
Are you a busy parent? As a mom to a child with special needs, I like to take some time to myself to unwind and destress. A great way to do that is by enjoying a bubble bath using Everyone Botanical Bubble Bath Eucalyptus + Citrus! The bubble bath smells amazing! For now, I’ve been adding a little to my son’s bath and he loves the bubbles.
For sore muscles, I like to use a salt soak, such as Everyone Epsom Salt Bath Soak Eucalyptus + Citrus! A salt soak helps relieve muscle soreness and just relax your body! Why not enjoy the refreshing scent of eucalyptus and citrus!
