Tag Archives: work-out
If you’ve been following me for longer than a few weeks now, you’ve probably gathered that working out and staying active is a big part of my life. I try and work out 5-6 days a week and I love it. The only problem with this though, is showering. I know it’s not good for your hair to wash it everyday, but I’m not one of those girls who “glistens” when they work out. It’s a full-on, nasty, sweat.
Because of this hair-washing dilemma, I was SO happy when I discovered Hair Shots. It’s an on-the-go hair fragrance that comes in tons of amazing scents. (My favorite is either coconut mango or strawberry!)
These bottles are only $11.99 and so easy to just throw in your purse or gym bag. I rarely have time to come home after a work out, shower, fix my hair, and then head out for the day. So, I carry one of these little bottles around in my purse, spray it in my hair after I work out, and go straight to a lunch meeting or errand-running!
I also use Hair Shots after I get out of the shower, either before or after I blow dry my hair. I am all about really expensive shampoos that are good for your hair, but those aren’t always the best-smelling ones. Hair Shots makes your hair smell amazing, but without being too overpowering or conflicting with your perfume! It’s also heat activated, so it will smell even better once you hit the gym or start working up that sweat.
For our 5 Friday Faves this week, we’ve picked our top 5 fitness items! Working out and running is such a huge part of both mine and Lo’s lives, so we wanted to share the items with ya’ll that make working out so much more enjoyable for us!
1. Favorite sports bra:
This all depends on your activity. If it’s for a highly active/intense workout, I love to have a lot of support, which is why the Under Armor Eclipse sports bra is my fave. If its for light activity (walking, yoga, etc.) you can’t go wrong with a good Target sports bra. So comfortable and easy to wear all the time (but, try and resist!). I have this in probably 4 different colors…
2. Favorite running shoe:
For everyday running, the Nike LunarEclipse takes the cake. What I love about Nike is that they manage to make an amazing product, but keep style in mind at the same time! I love this turquoise LunarEclipse.
3. Favorite workout companion:
Fitbit flex. I had been wanting a steps tracking device for a while and did my research on the different brands. I was won over by the amazing reviews for the fitbit flex and all of it’s capabilities. And, let’s be honest, it was the cutest one. It tracks my steps throughout the day, mileage from my runs, and my sleep at night. My husband bought it for me a few months ago and it has not left my wrist since!
4. Favorite running sock:
Crazy to think that such a small item makes such a massive difference in running; but it does! I love these tab back socks because they keep your feet from blistering, the sock doesn’t slip down into your shoe, and provides the support your foot needs.
5. Favorite pre-work out snack: banana and almond butter – every time! My favorite almond butter is from Trader Joe’s.

Holy cow, Juicy Couture Sport?? This is brilliant. What do you guys think of this collection?
Who’s with me? Cute work out clothes make exercise way more appealing and exciting…maybe even fun (what?). If I am honest, though, my wardrobe doesn’t keep me from total boredom, so I have to change up my get-in-shape training sessions during the week (I see better results this way too). Here are my favorite outfit combos for each:
Uh oh. Soul Cycle just debuted on ShopBop. #dangerzone
I mean. This lookbook. #inspo #hitthegym
My entire life has been full of fitness and health initiatives, but it wasn’t until this past year that I was introduced to TRX. I can not believe I deprived myself of this suspension training device for such as long period of time. It is a body definer involving body weight resistance. Oh, and did I mention its versatility? It is transferable. Yes, it can be easily taken to New York City, Hawaii, or the mountains as it easily rolls up in a suitcase and hangs on a door. This is a training method that deletes all excuses and rather creates a challenge for the body that will only inspire others to get in shape.
In retrospect, I would imagine myself to be a goal maker and a dream pursuer. TRX reflects these motives. It is a way to celebrate physical achievement, and it is a work out that eliminates all excuses!
