Hey! Good morning.
I will, however, be going to my first physical therapy appointment while they run.
(wearing all my new gear- details to follow)
AM- Taught a BOSU class (HIIT style).
PM- Taught a Y50X class (HIIT style) and strength training class.
Elliptical for 20 minutes.
No picture of my sweaty mug from the gym.You’re welcome.
So I’m a little excited to be posting a video. It’s been a good distraction. Yes, I realize I may be the only one excited about this (besides my boys of course), but hey, it’s been awhile and we’ll see how it goes, yes?
A little fashion chat first.
I got this package of awesome Reebok workout wear the other day.
Workout gear is always deeply appreciated here. Even more so the other day to get my mind off things. Huge bonus for having the gear picked out for you and getting it delivered instead of doing your own retail therapy late at night on your own. That juts takes too much time and it’s a little dangerous.
All my new attire is from the Reebok ONE Apparel line.
I’m really glad they sent me a black tank. Black has become my new favorite color these days and I’m convinced you can never have too may black workout tanks. It’s just so forgiving and doesn’t show sweat and dirt.
This is the PWR Seamless Long Bra Top.
I love the wide straps and the long length. Also, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, their PlayDry technology is no joke.
Um, and how cute is that fun back design?
- 96% Nylon / 4% Elastane
- Fitted athletic design contours to your body and won’t get in your way or slow you down during high-performance exercise
- PlayDry technology moves moisture and aids in ventilation
- Wide straps and built in bra for added support during high-performance exercise
- Engineered ventilation in the back for breathability
I also got the new PWR Fitted Capri.
Love capri pants, especially for warmer weather when you don’t want full length pants, but are doing a little too much lunging and jumping for shorts (I’ve made that mistake before).
Also love the message on the back.
My favorite item might be the PWR Legging (Print).
I know, right? How cool are these?
So cool that I had to put them on right away. (I did at least go in the house to change.)
STUFT Daddy (my photographer) was questioning the bottom of the pants and asking why one was black and the other was not. He must not know that that’s the “in” thing right now. He he.
It’s also the “in” thing to wear sunglasses in the shade
and have motivational print all down your leggings.
They are super comfortable. Not too heavy, not too light and very form fitting. I’m picky about leggings and I usually can’t pull them off, but I’m a big fan of these ones already.
A fitted legging designed to enhance your workouts, keeping you comfortable without sacrificing style. Features antimicrobial gusset for extreme comfort and odor management, plus generous cuffs for a secure feel that stays put.
- Nylon-Lycra blend for flexibility and durability during any workout
- Compression like fit for motion
- Contrast stitching lines on outside seam, hips and ankles adds flattering detail
- Anti-microbial gusset helps minimize odors and ensure a comfortable workout
Want a closer look at the tank? Or course you do.
Wide straps. Score. Not hugging too much of that area underneath the arms. Score.
Super cute V design in the back to impress your classes while you teach (even though you can’t see it that well in this picture). Score.
I wore the tank two days in a row. I wore it Wednesday and then again yesterday for my classes.
At least I changed pants though and went for the capris.
I wore those capris all day long. They were super comfortable and you can’t tell, but you can hike them up really high if you want to try to hide your belly button or tummy. Huge plus!
Time for a fun little workout.
I may not be able to run or lunge right now, but I’m lucky that I can still do jumping jacks and burpees pretty much pain free.
And, YOU are lucky too because we get to do them together.
Here’s a workout you can try at home. Super quick. Two moves. Less than ten minutes. No equipment necessary. I’m pretty sure my friend Bob would approve.
And, that’s not all. Here is us doing the workout.
Yes, the boys and I.
Please do it with us. Then I can tell them that you love their video. What’s better than a workout complete with a little entertainment?
I didn’t edit it because I ran out of time so there’s a lovely technical difficulty you get to watch.
I also loose count a couple of times.Oopsies.
The boys can do some pretty awesome burpees.
They also both love jumping jacks. (Obviously, who doesn’t?)
All the random workout equipment you see laying around was brought outside by them because they really wanted Mommy to do a complete workout. Funny.
Did you do it?
It’s a good one to keep track of your time and then come back in a week or so and do it again to see if you improve.
Um, so I have something HUGE to giveaway for those of you who did the workout. (Okay, I guess you can enter even if you didn’t do the workout with us.)
Since these leggings are my new favorite and all, I think one of you should have a pair.
