My Favorite Athleisure Wear

April 6, 2017

So… I have a slight problem.  I wanna wear normal clothes cause they’re cute and make me feel girly buuuut… all I really wear is athleisure wear.  I’m serious.  If you ever see me in real life 9/10 I’m wearing yoga pants and a workout tee with sneaks and a top knot.  Because lets get real for a second.  I HAVE NO WHERE TO GO WEARING JEANS.  Seriously.  I live in my house or at the gym or at the grocery store or running kids to and from school and NONE of those situations/locations are fancy enough for me to put on pants.  I actually have some reeaaal comfy jeans that I’d wear if I had to but they’re NEVER as comfortable as actual leggings.  #amiright?  What I wanna know is when do you guys wear jeans?

I’m so scatter-brained when the house is full of noise that I rely heavily on my list of to-do’s. I write down what I’m going to do at the gym the next day, what I plan on eating, and how I’m going to fit it into my schedule.

Staying in Shape + workout routine

November 3, 2016

Oh hiiii!! We have so much catching up to do!  Within the last two weeks, Brian quit his job, we sold our home, and the Cubs won the World Series.  WHAT IS HAPPENING?!  I will share more details on the next chapter in our story soon, but I need a minute to organize my thoughts.  It all happened so fast I think I’m still in shock!  And I kind of just want to eat alllll the Halloween candy.  And then start binging on all the bags of chips in our pantry.       Instead of stress eating, I’m going to share what I wore to workout in today as well as my Thursday workout routine… it just feels like the right thing to do.
