OOTD: Workout Wednesday


Good morning and happy Wednesday lovelies!

So I’ve made it to week two of lent, and so far I’m going strong! No dessert, more workouts (less laziness…), and (a little) less complaining… Hey, that one’s really hard! I am definitely trying, but it isn’t as easy as it may seem.  But, this week’s Workout Wednesday is an awesome little ensemble to get my sister and I motivated to run like the wind.  We are officially doing the Navy-Air Force Half Marathon in Washington, DC this September, and it is going to take a lot of training, but we are really excited about it! It is something I have wanted to do for a long time, so I am really excited to finally be following through.

But, enough about me… Here is this week’s fabulous Workout Wednesday!

Outfit Of The Day - Workout Wednesday


Top: Nike, $40; Leggings: Under Armour, $30; Shoes: Nike, $100; iPod: Apple, $106.

Does that make you want to get outside (or on the treadmill inside…) and run, or what?! I know for me, running is a stress relieve.  I use it to get away from things that may be bothering me or just to clear my head (almost) everyday.  The easiest way for me to do this, is to put my headphones in, turn up my “running” playlist, and just go.  How do you relieve stress? What is your favorite exercise/cardio workout? Let me know in the comments, I’d love new ideas for ways to get my daily cardio in!

Stay tuned for updates on me and my sister’s progress in training for our half marathon!


OOTD: Workout Wednesday

Good morning beautiful, and happy Wednesday! I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far, and you are finally back up and running after all of this snow (well, if you actually had snow like I did…)! This week’s Workout Wednesday is special, because it is Ash Wednesday, and for those of you who are Catholic (like I am) this is the official start of lent! With lent also comes what you are giving up, as a symbol of what you are sacrificing for Jesus.  Well this year, I have chosen a few things to give up…

  1. Dessert (or sweets in general) – I tried to give this up last year and I failed, miserably! So, this year I am making it my mission to complete the next 6 weeks without sweets! Dessert is most certainly my healthy eating pitfall, and I really need to break this habit I have of craving something sweet every single night to the point where it is all I can think about.  My solution, giving it up for lent! It has been said (by lots of important people…) that if you can go 21 days without something, you can break any addiction. Since lent is more than 21 days, I am hoping this will cure me of my chronic sweet tooth!
  2. Complaining/Bitching – My roommate and I have recently brought to light the fact that we do a lot of complaining/venting/bitching (whatever you would like to call it!), and that is not necessarily a personality trait that I would like to continue to have.  I have always known I wasn’t the most optimistic person, and I knew that I did my fair share of venting, but after reading a story in the latest Glamour about “a week without bitching” it really showed a lot of the things that can improve from this, for example self esteem (duh Kristen…), attitude, and even your diet! While those are just a few of the amazing effects that can result from having a more positive outlook on life!
  3. Laziness – As I told many of you, one of my New Year’s Resolutions was to go to the gym more often. Well, like most of us with these types of resolutions, I followed through for the first month or so, and now I am right back to where I started… So, for lent I am giving up laziness… I figured who can say no to the gym when it is something you’ve given up for Jesus, right?! That would just make me an awful person…

With that being said… Enough rambling! So, here is this week’s Workout Wednesday ladies!
