2017 was a big year of transition for our family! I finished school and started work in the field of my certification. This meant leaving work in the legal field and transitioning into public education. It’s been a change that I was nervous about at first, but I’m so happy I did it. I love being a teacher and working for our local school district. It’s been a real adventure to work with such incredible kids! Nothing is more difficult, but so rewarding!… [read more]

These days, I prefer to sport athleisure wear during the day. My clothes are comfy and allow me to look and feel great! I can still dress up a little with my daily wear but also go for a walk, do yoga or pilates! As a work at home mom, I want to be comfortable without feeling like a mess. My fitness tanks have cute or funny messages on them. They help brighten my day when I see them.

Workout Motivation Essentials

Workout Motivation Essentials 

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I don’t know about you, but I can come up with lots of excuses for not working out. Most of the time, it’s due to being bored with my routine. Other times, it’s because I’m tired, not in the mood, or it’s too hot. When those feelings of sabotage arise, I break out my favorite workout motivation essentials to help get me moving again.

Workout Motivation Essentials - Playlist

My first essential for keeping up the motivation is a killer playlist. Back in my college days, my friends and I would create mixes designed to get us through a workout. Though I miss the days of mixtapes and walkmans, I’m happy to have the option of creating as many playlists as I want on my phone.

One of my go to playlists actually comes from one artist, Girl Talk, also known as Gregg Michael Gillis. I can’t recommend this artist enough. I have listened to Girl Talk’s Night Ripper and Feed the Animals over and over. Why? Because they are basically professionally designed mixtapes spun together to get your heart pounding and your body moving.

When I’m not working out at the gym or outside, I turn to workout DVDs, Beachbody on Demand, or fitness channels on YouTube. Varying my workouts tends to prevent boredom and keep me more motivated. Lately, I’ve been really into a Pilates challenge I discovered from Boho Beautiful.  I’m also a huge fan of Yoga with Adrienne, Fitness Blender, and Blogilates. Each has a unique style and offers me different types of workouts to suit my moods.

Workout Motivation Essentials - Swell Bottle

Of course, once I get to sweating, I need maximum hydration. I never start off a workout without having a fully loaded bottle of water. Although I have several in my collection, my go to is either my giant, 32 oz., BPA-free Whole Foods water bottle, or my Swell Bottle. I love my Swell Bottles because they keep water cold for over 24 hours. I never have to worry about adding more ice because I know my water will always be very cold.

Workout Motivation Essentials - Just Live Race Time Cropskin Blue Fish

Finally, and probably most importantly, is my workout gear. Nothing increases my workout motivation more than activewear that is comfortable, high performing, and fashionable. My latest find comes from Just Live, who was kind enough to send me two pieces from their new collection to try. I choose the Race Time Cropskin Blue Fish and the Expression Muscle Tank – Buddha Blue from their Summer Lookbook. I just couldn’t resist having my very own Buddha shirt, or workout capris that reminded me of the ocean.

Workout Motivation Essentials - Expression Muscle Tank - Buddha

What I love most about the Race Time Cropskin Pants is their proprietary Yolon Fabric. It’s designed to remain cool to the touch and feel like a second skin. It’s lightweight, yet helps smooth and sculpt all my curves. Plus, it wicks moisture away so I don’t get overheated or overly sweaty. I’m also a huge fan of the stitching, which is designed for maximum comfort and longevity.

The Expression Muscle Tank in Buddha Blue isn’t just cute, it’s well made. I love the soft Viscose/Spandex blend, which helps this super comfy shirt hold its shape. I kind of wish all my workout shirts were made the same way. I can’t wait to see what Just Live comes out with next to help keep my workout game going strong.

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.

When it comes to magazines’ summer content, there are two things that can be clearly detected in virtually every photo. One: the models’ faces are slender and happy. Two: their hair is flowing, wild and free, in their faces. De-puffed faces, most of us can get on board with; but having hair in your face, particularly on a day in one of the sweatiest seasons? No thank you!

To say that bikini season is a phenomenon is an understatement. Every year in modern times, the phrase pops up as early as February or April: “Bikini season is coming! Get in shape!”, or “Since we all know that bikini season is coming, it’s time to start that diet…”.
