So I bought the Lululemon Mind Over Matter Pullover in Pink Mist today! I've been feeling a little sick, but my fiance and his friend were teaching a free class at the Lululemon store this morning so I went. I figure sometimes sweating helps to get rid of the germs. But sometimes you get sicker, so we'll see what happens this time. Of course after the class, which was awesome by the way, I stayed around to check out stuff. It's actually been a while since I last stepped foot into a Lululemon store, so I wasn't familiar with any of the new stuff. I saw lots of different things in this pink mist color, which is a faint pink and is gorgeous! I don't usually feel compelled to buy more than one item in the same color, but I think I definitely need more stuff in pink mist. I also have like, eh hem, 10, Lululemon running pullovers in my closet. There was a time when I felt like I had to buy every new pullover that came out, just because I'm a hoarder. But now I am more picky about what I buy since I have so many and don't wear most of them.
I could not resist the Mind Over Matter in pink mist though! And I even told myself that I'd only buy running luon pullovers a while ago. I find running luon to be more comfortable and flattering than luxtreme. But I think the luxtreme in this pullover is thinner and stretchier for some reason. I could be making things up. But I swear my others that I have owned and sold over time were stiffer. I also told myself I would not buy another white pullover, since the sleeves of my white Energy Pullover have turned grey no matter what I do to keep them white. Pink mist is very light and might have the same issue. But, I think I can keep luxtreme cleaner than running luon.
I took some pictures. As you can see, this material doesn't hide any bumps - You can totally see the waistband of my groove pants under. I probably could have sized up to a 6, but I got it in my regular size 4.
I love the back of this pullover. It's got very slight contrasting panels. There's also cute little ruffles on the neck.
I think I'll wear it around and see if I need to go back and exchange for a size 6. I kind of have a feeling a size 6 would not be much different. As far as style goes, this pullover isn't really different from any of the other ones in my closet that have a front zipper that goes down to the middle of the chest, a side back zipper pocket, thumbholes, some contrasting panels, etc. But the neck is higher, similar to the Inspire pullover, which I love. Now when I put on my old Hills Pullover, it totally bugs me that the neck is not as high. But of course I still can't part with them though. =)
Alright so now onto the Sunday Funday part. I only worked out 3 times this week, since I am coming down with something. And I also need more time to study.
What I did: Ran for about 45 minutes with different intervals - sprints, hills, etc. Then 30 minute mat pilates.
What I wore: Juicy Couture yoga tank, with bright blue Lululemon Flow Y bra under. Groove pants. Run: Brisk pullover as to/from.
What I did: Ran for about 30 minutes with crazy sprint intervals. I ran at a speed of 11-12 mph. I did numerous sprints of 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off - it's a killer. Literally after 4 minutes (8 on/off), you feel like death. I also did some one minute on, one minute off intervals. I like doing this because it takes half of the time to get double the results. Then I did a 60 minute yoga class.
I have on here my Jumpstart gym bag in foxy plaid which I love, and am so glad I got 2 of them - this one and one in angel blue. They are 2 of the best looking duffel bags that I think Lululemon has ever come out with. Very unique. I wish they had more structure to them, but they look good when they are full. The potion purple in the bag compliments the purple crush part of the tank nicely, if I do say so myself!
What I did: Ran intervals again, of 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off. For about 15 minutes. Then went to Lululemon and took the hour long circuit class which had 18 different stations. It was a killer! We did everything you can think of. From pushups, to burpees, to jump squads, etc.
What I wore: Lululemon Electric Orange cool racerback (but looks pink in the picture for some reason), Chirp Flow Y, and Groove pants. With my teal zeal Inspire Pullover on top.
The cool racerback that's poking out from under the Inspire pullover on the bottom picture resembles the actual color a lot more. Maybe I need to find a new spot in the house to take pictures, because this one is right underneath a light which probably blew out the color. Oh well.
So I think I am going to keep an eye out for a tank in pink mist. I saw the swiftlys and the racerbacks, and Push Ur Limits in pink mist today. But I couldn't decide which one I wanted, so I didn't end up getting any. I think I would have got the swiftly tank, but they didn't have my size. Maybe I also need some new bottoms in pink mist too. A skirt would be nice!
