Cute to work it!

I love to look good while working out. It makes me work so much harder when I feel confident. You know you love it when you run by a mirror and you see yourself and go “daaayum” . Here are a few gym accessories and clothes that I love and I hope you will love them too. Some are pricey… some are affordable but they are all worth it!

Shoes: You must have a great supportive shoe to run and train in – try these 🙂

This is the Nike Free run +3 . It comes in different colors but this is my favorite. $100.

For training: The Nike Free Advantage , $80.00. These shoes come with a supportive band across the top of your feet so you feel safe no matter how many twists and turns you take.

My favorite sports bra:

From Lululemon, a super supportive sports bra to get you through all your cardio moves, $48.

For bottoms, check out these Nike Pro shorts and running tights. I personally love the tights for most work outs and I love the shorts for any type of intense cardio class. Pants are $65 and shorts are anywhere from $12 to $40. As shown, $30

For tops, I really encourage people to purchase something thats either dry-fit or absorbs moisture.  They usually go for a little more money than your normal run of the mill shirts. (I find myself wearing A shirts at times). These are good investments if you spend time working out. They save your skin from chaffing too, which is a huge plus for me. The short sleeve is $65 and the long sleeve is $75 both available at http://www.Nike.com

If you’re running outside, leaving the gym, or just getting warmed up, try these jackets out. 

I love Lululemon’s Scuba hoodies! The have a really neat front zipper and the collar comes up around your mouth which is nice when its cold outside. They come in really cute patterns this is one of my favorites! It’s also pink which I am a sucker for! I love the thumb holes too! It’s just a great all around, well made piece. $108 and WORTH IT!

This is my favorite sweater shirt from under armour. Its cute, its fuzzy, and very nice to slip into after a shower or before a work out 😛 $54

Bags: Its great to have something to carry all your gym stuff in . Try these!

Under armour Duffle $45 in white. The Nike Brasilia in pink – $25

Of course, we can’t have a work out with out a cute headband. Both by Under Armour. This is my favorite work out accessory.

Braided head band : $10 , Pack of skinny head bands $12

Weight Loss and Your Skin!

 

Weight loss and Your Skin!

While losing weight, I have started to use products to help my skins elasticity and make that ugly cellulite go away. If you’re one of those lucky and rare people with no cellulite, bless you haha, but for the rest of us, I hope this can help you on your journey!   I have tried an array of products and a few have really helped me. I hope they can help you too.

Stuff that works for me: I wear a sports bra anytime I’m not wearing a regular bra. It’s a great idea to wear something very supportive while working out as well – especially if you’re crazy like me and enjoy kick boxing. To help improve the elasticity of my skin,  I started to use Nivea firming lotion which actually reduces the look of stretch marks while firming your skin. I love this stuff! I tried using Palmers Cocoa Butter, but it doesn’t work the same. You can see a difference almost immediately. I’m sure I’ll use this stuff forever. Its also very affordable which is awesome for those on a budget.  A good body exfoliater can work wonders too. Try Bliss fatgirl soap or fatgirlscrub. Bliss also has great cellulite reducing cream called fatgirlslim and fatgirlsleep. Its a great system that works wonders on that pesky cellulite problem. I also tried something called the love handler which is also a Bliss product. The love handler goes all over problem areas like back fat or love handles. While these are a little more expensive, they did help me a ton. They are like little helpers in my quest to get a 6 pack. All of these are available at www.Sephora.com. Another good trick is to get a spray tan. It reduces the look of cellulite and makes you look a lot slimmer. If you can’t afford one, drug stores offer some that are around 8$-12$. Finding a good self tanner in a drug store can be tricky. I’ve tried a bunch of them! A great one I’ve found is L’Oreal Sublime Bronze self tan. It doesn’t make you look orange! You can also pick up some self tanning gloves at ULTA for around 5$ so your hands don’t turn orange. If they do, a great product to use is St.Tropez tan remover for 18$ which is available at Sephora.
