Weâ€™re out of several key breakfast staples (i.e. oatmeal and eggs) so I had to get a little creative with breakfast.
No raw oats? No cereal? Nothing a Clif bar canâ€™t do.
In the mix:
- Clif bar
- Greek yogurt
- Sunflower seeds
- Chia seeds
Two New Favorites
I am always on the lookout for great new workout gear; however, I am very, very picky, especially when it comes to tops and bottoms.
- Shirts: Obviously, must be sweat-wicking. Workout tops cannot be too tight. I hate tops that suction onto my stomach when I start to sweat. Also, tops cannot be too short or I end up pulling them down all the time.
- Running Tights/Capris: I hate capris that expand when they get wet so they end up sliding down my butt. Iâ€™d rather have skin-tight running tights for muscle compression purposes. Also â€“ they have to be functional. I prefer a zippered pocket above the butt that is large enough for a credit card, key, and packet of Gu (at least).
Happily, I was recently gifted two pieces of gear from Lululemon that are so amazingly perfect that Iâ€™d going to buy some more in different colors as soon as I have cash to spare.
First up: Swiftly Tech Short Sleeve. This shirt is awesome because it actually has threads of SILVER woven into the fabric, which reduces stank. And it really works â€“ my shirt felt wet, but not smelly, after a hot yoga class. It also features patterned meshing at the neckline, under the boobies, and under the arms for maximum breathability in the areas that girls sweat the most. Itâ€™s a long tank and would be awesome for tall girls. Plus, super soft and flattering.
Next: Inspire Crop. I am IN LOVE with these tights. First of all, they have patterned muscle compression and â€˜hold inâ€™ all of my lovely lady lumps, which really does make running more comfortable. The cut is also very, very flattering. Thereâ€™s a big pocket in the back and a little hidden key pocket in the front. But the nicest thing about these tights is the extra wide waistband, which doesnâ€™t cut into my stomach at all.
Of course, the only drawback to these pieces is the price ($58 and $86). However, you definitely get what you pay for â€“ these are two pieces of gear that Iâ€™ll be rocking for years.
Are you as picky as I am when it comes to the fit and feel of workout clothes? What are your requirements for an awesome top or bottom?
