this week, it’s all about working it out.
1. working out with some faves. it never ceases to amaze me, how one good session of (insert whatever you love most in the world: for me, that’d be working out + friends) can entirely turn your day/week/life around. i was having that day of a Sunday night into Monday morning, and the only thing that kept me sane yesterday was knowing i had a workout planned with two of my closest girlfriends last night.
annnnd it went amazingly. i ran 2.5 miles of intervals before they got there, and then i set up a little circuit boot camp in my building’s gym (which is pretty stellar for an apartment building gym) and we kicked our own butts for an hour.
here’s the total body circuit workout i put us through, followed by 3 different ab stations. we all tackled different stations at the same time, then alternated til we’d done all 3, and then they did the cardio while i did more abs (because i’d already run).
it worked beautifully and we had a blast working out together, and of course i just wish i could train people for a living and be the happiest girl alive every day of my life. nothing like a good sweat session of a workout with some of your fave friends to make Monday marvelous.
the only bummer is that i forgot to take pix of them working out (life fail) but definitely plan to in the future, as we’re going to make this a Monday night ritual (workout + Bachelor and girl silliness = best Monday routine ever). this segues nicely into today’s second thing, however, of which i did manage to take a pic…
2. Danskin Now capris. because we’re all obsessed with fun workout clothes, but nobody wants to pay top dollar for every single piece, amiright? i’m totally in love with my new Danskin Now capris (and went back to buy them in two more colors, as well as a pair for my best friend). they were literally under $10 (in Walmart — who knew?!), and they feel just as good as any (and better than a lot) of other pairs i’ve owned. so so so so soft and comfortable and stretchy and breathable.
i rarely match my workout clothes (hi, if you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen the Punky Brewster looks in which i run), but these capris kinda match my eyes, so that totally counts in my book. #ootd 🙂 sorrynotsorry for the bathroom selfie
it’s so cool to see companies like Danskin put out affordable lines like this. my mom remembers wearing their stuff when she was younger (have i mentioned she was a real life ballerina in NYC?? she went to Performing Arts high school and then danced with Ballet Russe), and i know some of their tights and pieces were definitely pricier, so i consider this quality for this price the craziest steal i’ve seen in a long time. i’m super happy with them and definitely recommend them as some i-feel-like-i-just-stole-these additions to your workout collections!
You tell me:
Do you work out with friends? If so, what’s your fave group workout to do?
Best new item of workout clothes you’ve bought recently?
Do you match your workout outfits? like, to each other, or to your eyes, or your sneaks, or your hair…it all counts. 🙂
