Just Working On My Fitness (Outfits)


new fit

What’s up. Thanks Fergie.

Should “ThanksFergie” be the new “Bye Felicia”, I think so.

Let’s talk about fitness since it’s fitness week. Allow me to sum up my life of working out. We’ll start with high school, when we all agree that it’s about time we begin exercising with some purpose. Actually let me back up even more to volleyball camp, the summer before high school. See, I just happen to be very athletic, my mom swears it’s because she did some hand-eye coordination exercise with me when I was a baby, where you touch the baby’s hands to their opposite toes over and over again. I argue all it did was give me a propensity towards toe-grabbing, (my own and read more…

It’s Fitness Week! Time to Get Your Style in Shape


I haven’t had a mid-life crisis, but I think I know what it feels like (except instead of buying a Miata I bought leggings). I was in my barre class when suddenly I looked around and realized everyone was wearing the same version of the same (boring) outfit, including me. It was black spandex central.

Ok hi. Let’s talk about Fall Swimwear. I’m not sure if you’ve noticed but it’s still hot out, gorgeous out, really. Plus I remind myself that not everyone lives in my little corner of the country, and it’s going to be hot all over the globe, forever. Plus you need swim for vacations. Oh and PLUS swimwear isn’t just for pools, I wear mine as clothes all the time. Like this Cover Swim houndstooth one-piece suit that technically I am wearing as a swimsuit since I’m in a pool and stuff, but you could also argue that I’m just wearing it as a bodysuit sans pants.
