Fitness

I’ll be honest, I’ve never really been very big into working out. (I think I get this one from my mama!) But since I grew up either dancing or cheering, I was always active in some way. And since graduating, I’ve had to find ways to keep my body moving. I  like learning as much as I can about fitness and am occasionally inspired to get into a routine. In this category, I’ share what has and hasn’t worked for me, real-life-busy-girl tips, and everything in between. I’m hoping that this category will grow as my motivation does! Speaking of workout motivation, I did write a post on How To Make Yourself Actually Want To Workout and I use these tips to continue to motivate myself!

6 Ways To Style Biker Shorts + My Favorites

Hi friends! Today I thought we’d talk biker shorts! First of all, what do y’all think about biker shorts? Are you into them? Still not sure? Either way, I get it. It’s kinda taken me a while to feel comfortable in them, and to be completely honest I still feel a bit weird styling them and wearing them as an actual outfit like to lunch or errands or something, but…

My 4 Favorite lululemon Shirts

It is absolutely no secret that I have an obsession with lululemon. Their stuff is just honestly THE BEST. If you haven’t tried it yet, do it!! And if you’re looking for an amazing top/shirt, well, you’re in the right place! I’ve been raving about lululemon’s Align leggings for forever, but in the last year or so I’ve also discovered the amazingness that is their shirts. Between the fits, the…

My Favorite Athletic Sneakers

I’m not sure when athletic sneakers became such a huge part of my shoe collection – probably in the last year or two? But looking at my closet these days, there is no doubt I love them and might even have a problem, lol. I always had a couple pairs but walking has become such a big part of my routine, and because of this I am always on the hunt for…

Recent lululemon Favorites

A couple weeks ago I made a pretty big lululemon order and shared a few of my purchases on a recent reel. And before you ask…yes I did get another pair of align leggings (my downfall). BUT, I also picked up a few new kinds of tanks that I have not tried before and some running shorts (walking in my case). And yes – lulu is a bit expensive but  their…

Why I Love Going on My 30 Minute Walk Every Day

Something y’all hear me talk about (and see on Stories!) a lot is my daily 30-minute walking routine. This is a habit I started a handful of years ago – before Four and even before Duncan! Since it’s become such a big and important part of my daily routine, I thought I’d break down why I love it, what it does for me personally, how it’s become great family time…

How I’ve Been Working Out Through My Pregnancy

One of my most frequently asked questions during my pregnancy has definitely been how I’ve been working out throughout. And I totally get why! Working out during pregnancy is something that many people feel differently about – there are so many opinions and lots of guidance on the subject that it can be difficult to navigate.

What I’m Doing To Stay On My Workout Game

Outfit Details : Leggings // Top // Cardigan // Shoes  OK, I feel like I have to kind of say something before diving into this post. I am NOT any kind of personal trainer/fitness influencer LOL. I started sharing my workouts on IG a while ago (even before COVID) because I thought it would be helpful to anyone else who struggles to workout even though they know they should (AKA…

How to Stay Fit Without a Gym

With everything that’s been going on and most gyms shut down for the past few months, I thought this was a really timely subject to talk about. A lot of places have reopened depending where you live, but I know a lot of you are still working out at home. Personally, I’ve been back to my gym a few times, but not gonna lie, it still feels a little weird.

OK, today is all about cute workout clothes for warm weather! Because as it turns out, Denver gets HOT. Who knew? LOL. Although I will say, there’s not a lot of humidity, which is a very welcome change compared to Dallas. Anyway, I tend to swap a few things out with my activewear this time of year because I’m all about crop tops and fun leggings – like this tie-dyed…

2 Athleisure Outfits When the Mornings Start Getting Chilly

Hey friends! OK, so just in case you haven’t seen my Stories recently, the Denver weather has hit me HARD. I know that sounds really dramatic LOL, but it’s been a big eye-opener. It’s like I knew it would be different than Dallas, but actually starting to experience it is crazy. Also, I don’t hate it? It’ll take some time to adjust for sure, but I really don’t mind because…

3 Things I’ve Learned About Working Out Lately

Since college, I’ve had an ‘all or nothing’ relationship with working out. Growing up I was super active (like most of us are) and I even cheered throughout college so movement was easy – something I just did. But as an adult, I feel like there’s this huge lack of motivation that comes with working out. And maybe it’s because of the pressure we start putting on it. It becomes…
