Working On My Fitness

Getting back in the swing of school & life in general is so difficult after a long break.
What I've found that has really helped me spring back is working out.

I have a wedding coming up in May (if you don't know this by now you've either been living under a rock or just started reading the blog today!)
But I want to tone up as much as possible before the wedding comes along & it's quickly approaching!


I was in such a good place a few years ago, but then I started dating C & basically, I got comfortable and I got lazy and I didn't maintain the healthy lifestyle that I had been living.
I don't have a radical diet plan that I'm following now, I eat basically what I want but I just try to control my portion sizes & I don't really eat anything that is just awful for you.

But y'all, my biggest motivator isn't even the wedding-it's the clothes.

Today, I'm sharing with y'all my favorite workout outfit & why I love it so...enjoy!


The tank top is from Lauren James, but I saw this one on sale from Country Club Prep so I knew I had to include it! I love that the one I have is over-sized & so comfortable to work out in.

The shoes are Nike Lunarglide shoes from Academy. I bought my pair similar to these (in black) my junior year of high school (which is way too long for tennis shoes, I know) but they are still in great shape & still so comfy!

I don't have this exact pair, but my all time favorite leggings for every day use & wearing to the gym are from VS. They're great quality & have lasted so long.

The sports bra is also from VS. I haven't personally tried this sports bra before, but the reviews on it are great. I would love to try one out, I think this color would look great underneath the tank I featured.

Tervis is one of my all-time favorite companies & this water bottle is too adorable to not include!
I use the tumbler from Tervis, but this water bottle may have to be added to my collection pretty soon. It would be a great Valentine's Day present too, but more on that later ;)

These Emi-Jay hair ties are also life-savers for gym days.
These are great because they don't leave the dreaded dent in your hair!
I am obsessed with all the fun color options that they have too, something for everyone.


I hope y'all enjoyed this & I hope it gave you a little inspiration along the way!
We're all just trying to be the best that we can be :)

Until next time. . .

xoxo,
