Fall Workout Gear

Happy First day of Fall! That is music to my ears…literally!

I try to take a walk with my little one daily, so stocking up on Fall workout gear is essential for me. Plus, let’s face it, some days, all I wear is workout gear (even if I don’t get a workout in that day) to run errands in, go to library story time or just wear around the house while cleaning. It’s just easier. And, I know I’m not the only Mom that does this either. Who’s with me? Workout gear is so comfortable, and now there are a lot of cute options to choose from, so you don’t look frumpy.

Here’s what I’ve got my eye on right now. Happy Shopping!

Half-Zip Pullover

I bought this the other day, and it is so comfortable. I love the bright flamingo pink color too! You can’t beat Old Navy’s prices either. They’re always several dollars cheaper than Target sometimes.

Go-Dry Compression Leggings

I have always worn the Target leggings, and love them. I might have to try this pair next.

Go-Dry Compression Crops
This length looks perfect for the cooler temps. They come in some fun prints/colors. And, the price is right.

Elastic Strap Burnout Tanks
I love wearing tank tops under my pullovers. This tank would be a good option for laying under your pullover this Fall.

Zella “Neo” Wraparound Cardigan

This would be so chic with leggings for running errands/weekends. I think it’s too way too cute to sweat in…don’t you?

Patagonia “Re-Tool” Snap Pullover

This fleece looks perfect for those chilly mornings! I love this yellow color.

Women’s New Balance for J.Crew

Gold tennis shoes? Need I say more? Hello Happy Feet!

Hope y’all have a happy day

Motivation for the last 5 pounds


I remember this time last year I was not in a good place, weight-wise. I had just had our first baby, and I still had a lot of weight to lose. Today, I’m proud to say I’ve lost everything but the last 5 pounds.
I took a short break exercising, as the last four weeks have been hard to get out and exercise in this heat. But, today, I went for a walk again with my little one, and it felt so good. What feels even better? Knowing that this Fall, I’m actually going to be back to the size I was before I found out I was expecting. I’m giddy with excitement about fitting into my old clothes too. It was a hard road. I remember days when I didn’t want to go for a walk, but I forced myself to go. I eat better too. No crash diets here, just simply making better choices at every meal. And, it’s paid off. Next time around, I’m not gaining as much weight, but to look back where I was a year ago, it’s truly amazing what I’ve accomplished besides raising our little one. One day at a time, one step at a time. You can do it too.

Happy Monday, friends!
