Fitness Friday – lululemon tank and crops

Welcome to my world of workout gear obsession. Getting new gear just makes me happy! Do I dare say it’s even better than buying normal clothes?! Ahhhh! I’m in workout gear just as much as normal clothes, so I guess that justifies being equally as excited 🙂

Some of my crop pants were getting pretty worn out, so I was on the hunt for some new ones. I tried on lulu’s run: top speed crop and instantly liked them. The fabric is great with wicking away sweat and they are a medium rise, which I prefer (if not higher!). The fabric does have a sheen to it, so in the dressing room I first thought you could see through them. But I did my “squat in the dressing room/bend over” test, and they were not see through. The fabric is just so shiny it seems that way. You just have to be sure to get the right size because they are meant to be tight…so of course if you are squeezing it to them and are way too tight, they will be see through when you bend over!

I’m always on the hunt too for good, supportive sports bra tanks. Now I wouldn’t go run a 5k in this inspiration tank II bra tank, but it provides enough support for me while lifting, doing barre, and jogging. I love the layered look – minus having to wear layers! The fabric is very comfortable – I would like to snag a few more when they go on sale. Added bonus – it’s not low cut! The girls stay in when you bend over…so take that creeper guys at the gym!

If you’ve come across some great new workout gear you can’t live without, please share! I’m always looking for new stuff to try!

Happy Fitness Friday, everyone!

Favorite Things – Sweaty Bands Headbands

thursday_header

My hair is not long enough to just throw back in a pony tail. I’ve got to have some sort of band to hold my short bangs back. Because what is worse than your sweaty bangs flopping in your face while you are working out? Well I’m sure some things are worse – but you get the point.

I had a hard time finding workout headbands that actually hold my hair back AND DO NOT FALL OUT OF PLACE. Whoah you say…you just used all caps. That’s right. I’ve tried lucy and lululemon bands and they don’t hold a candle to Sweaty Band headbands! When I had those brands on, I had to constantly reposition them because they would start slipping. So aggravating while dancing in Zumba and your headband just falls on the floor mid-dance.

Sweaty Bands do not slip. Once I put it in my hair for a workout, that’s the first and last time I’ll touch it until I’m home and ready to take it out of my hair. The fabric on the underside is a velvety feel, and that is the magic trick. I was lucky enough to try out one for free…my company actually has customized ones that we give to clients. And it’s black polka dot design. Love dots!

I can’t recommend these headbands enough. It’s the best $15 you will spend for your hair. And they aren’t just for working out! Anyone who wants a cute patterned headband should shop this great band. You won’t be disappointed. If you are…well, you won’t be so I don’t have to worry! 🙂

Here and here are some great black and white options! There are also a ton of designs on their website.
