 Is it just me or did lunges use to be so much easier in high school than they are now?

 I LOVE stretching! Especially if I'm sore after a workout. Stretching tired, achy muscles is the best!

OUTFIT DETAILS: TOP - LULU LEMON // PANTS - LULU LEMON //SHOES - ALTRA

Hey loves! I am in no way an expert in fitness, yoga, whatever. (You get the point!) But, I have decided to eat healthier and exercise more this year than I did in 2015! Growing up I was a string bean, literally so skinny, I was nothing but skin and bones for the longest. And I hated it! I had a super fast metabolism and could literally eat anything I wanted... chocolate cake, fries, milkshakes, breads of all kinds, all the fattening foods and NEVER gain a pound! NOT lying! But those days have gone and I really miss my super fast metabolism! Anyways my point is I still like to eat those same foods (in healthy portions of course..well most of the time) but I have to exercise to keep in shape! I'm not a huge runner, I wish I was! But I find walking to be very therapeutic. It helps me clear my head and when walking at a fast pace or at walk-run intervals is great cardio! I love coming home from work and throwing my hair up in a quick ponytail, grabbing Patton and heading to our town park for a walk. And this outfit from Lulu Lemon is the perfect outfit for the weather we are having! It's also the perfect outfit to wear running errands like to the grocery store. I find that when I wear work out clothes to the supermarket, I tend to buy healthier foods because I'm reminded of what my goal is - to eat healthy and be healthy! (Give it a try and tell me if it works for you!)

Back to the workout clothes - I know Lulu Lemon is kinda pricey but I love their stuff! I can't buy everything I want and trust me I want it all!! But these two pieces were well worth the price tag in my opinion. For Christmas, my sister asked for a pair of Lulu Lemon leggings that were around $100 and I gave her the hardest time saying how ridiculous it was to spend that amount on a pair of leggings that you can get a similar pair at TJ Maxx for $20! I told her I would never buy such expensive workout clothes and after visiting the Lulu Lemon store over Christmas Break and buying this outfit, I stuck my foot in my mouth!! And apologized of course! these leggings are life changing! they must be made out of a super fabric that just feels amazing and hugs your body! LOVE them! And this peplum-back top is the cutest! Basically, Lulu Lemon is everything everyone has hyped them up to be! And when I first laid eyes on these tennis shoes I laughed at the thought of me trying them on because I thought they were so ugly and funny looking. You guys, these are hands down THE most comfortable pair of tennis shoes you can ever own! It seriously feels like I'm walking on clouds! And they've actually grown on me now! I love them! If you're looking for a new pair of tennis shoes or if you have really bad feet (like me) give Altra's a try! Thank me later! Sorry for rambling in this post - I have a serious case of the Mondays.

Hope you all have a great week!
