Workout Favorites

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Dove. I received a product sample and promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

tee: old navy   pants: tjmaxx

1. Cute clothes.  Fully true that cute workout clothes make you feel better and more motivated to work out.  And since I end up wearing them hours and hours after (or before) working out, it's even more important.  My favorite tees to wear working out are the old navy v-neck tees.  I love finding workout clothes at TJMaxx because they are cheap and cute.  My American Eagle yoga pants are my favorite leggings, pants, workout clothes, wear all the time clothes.  
2. Workout dvds.  I finished doing 21 Day Fix Extreme two weeks ago and started again.  I don't know what I would do without workout dvds because going to the gym regularly isn't an option right now.  Some weeks I can get there twice and I love going to group classes, but most days I do a video right after I put Addi down for her nap.  

Workout setup: DVR, workout video on my computer, baby monitor.  

3.  Aasics.  For years and years I've been a fan of Aasic shoes,  I've surely seen and had much cuter workout shoes, but unlike clothes I feel like it's much better that they fit right and are good shoes then how they look.  

4. Deodorant.  Here's the thing.  If I pick working out during Addilyn's nap, which is what I do all days but Saturday, a shower does not often happen afterwards.  Usually not until after bedtime or more likely the next morning.  Gross, I know.  But it doesn't really bother me as long as I can't smell myself.  Which means having great deodorant. 

So I was happy to try out the Dove Advanced Care Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant.  When I was in high school soccer I went as far as wearing men's Old Spice because I thought that worked way better than any women's deodorant.  But smelling like a man now is not on my list.  So I love that this deodorant smells way better, is smooth, and lasts 48 hours, which is another excuse to skip a day showering.  I used to put on deodorant a few times throughout the day.  In the morning, after a workout and then if we were going anywhere in the evening.  Since trying this new one I've only had to put it on in the mornings.  

Addi has always been obsessed with my deodorant and took the first chance she got to put some on herself.   If only she could get it in her armpit on not her arm or belly.

Love those leggings! Maybe if I bought cute workout clothes, I would be motivated to work out more...haha not likely! Kudos to you for making time to work out, especially while being a busy mom to a toddler--impressive!

I, too, love the leggings. I love that you DVR something and do a workout video at the same time. :) Brilliant!

Good for you with the 21 Day Fix Extreme! I want to try to get through the 21 Day Fix (regular version) and see results first before I get the extreme one...the regular one is intense enough for me!

Cute clothes are also my workout favourites. If you don't feel comfortable with what your wearing, it's very hard to be motivated. lol. Love your top. I love shirts like that. Your daughter looks adorable by the way.
