Anyway, on a different note, my boxing class intensity was kicked up like 10 notches this week! I took the class on Thursday night and my back and arms were actually quite sore for a couple days after! I even skipped my upper body superset workout on Saturday because of it. Although I wasn't nearly as sore as I used to get when I took long breaks from boxing before. So I take that as a confirmation that I am in better shape now. Woohoo!
I think there really is something to letting your body rest. I'm not very good at that, because I tend to always want to push on. So I probably don't take as much rest as I should. I had to force myself to stay home on Saturday, and fight those little voices that say: maybe you should at least take a spin class or something?! But too much cardio is not good for muscle building, and I had already reached my 4 cardio sessions per week limit. So I literally forced myself to stay put and just relax! It was... pretty boring! I took 2 naps. =P
Alright, let's get on with this! I actually have my dinner outfit from last Sunday night as my first outfit of this post. I wasn't going to post it, but then I thought... why not! It was the first time I had worn the Karma Rosa dress. I was going to sell it, but I forgot and so it had been hanging in my closet with the tag on this whole time. I decided to just take it off and wear it. Because it's a pretty nice fitting dress! It's made of yoga clothes material so it's quite comfy too. I wore it with my Modern Vintage wedge sandals:
I love the back of this dress where you see a sliver of the skin, but the design still perfectly hides your bra!
But of course I worn my Vince Paper Leather Scuba jacket over it, and carried my Balanciaga City bag, because I don't leave the house without these 2 items now. =)
Splits59 Ion wrap over the dress:
What I did: Legs, followed by 30 minutes of the gauntlet. I started doing my intervals on the gauntlet instead of the treadmill because all the treadmills at my gym only go up to 15% incline... which is just not high enough.
What I wore: Splits59 Devon Scoop Back tank in twilight, with the new Lorna Jane Lola bra under it. Splits59 Nova capri tights and Nike Free Bionics.
Splits59 Aerial LS hoodie in fire as to and from:
What I did: Shoulder/tri workout, followed by gauntlet session again. This one gets me so sweaty!
What I wore: Lululemon swiftly racerback in angel wing paisley, Lululemon white free to be bra under. Splits59 Joan B 3/4 tight and printed Nike Free 3.0s.
White Swiftly LS as to and from:
Here's my work outfit from the same day - I wore the Tahari ASL Sleeveless Ponte dress, and Coach Nala patent pumps:
What I did: Back/bi and then 30 minutes of gauntlet again.
Splits59 Olivia Run Tee in barberry/apricot as to and from:
Work outfit: Express Metallic Pointelle Knit Layering Tee and Express Welt Pocket pencil skirt in firecracker. Sam Edelman Novato Slingbacks again!
After work, I went to boxing class! Yep, long day!
I wore my Lululemon fatigue camo cool racerback with power purple free to be bra under. Run Passion crop in power purple, and Nike Free Bionics in purple camo print too! Hehe.
What I did: I was totally thinking that I would not be able to get up so early for the gym after doing two workouts both in am and pm the day before. But somehow I felt pretty good so I got up and got my butt to the gym to do my leg workout! I was done with cardio for the week though, so just legs!
What I wore: Lorna Jane Danni sleeveless hoodie with Lorna Jane Dual Support bra under. Splits59 Ginger crop in marianna blue, and black Nike Free Bionics. Man... I didn't realize I was going to be so hot wearing the vest to do legs! I think the hood makes me really hot, I'm not sure. The vest is made of mesh all over, and I only had a bra under, so I didn't think I was going to get too hot!
This bra makes it look like I'm actually wearing a shirt under the vest.. hehe!
Splits59 Venus Jacket as to and from:
Saturday 4/12 - Rest day
What I did: Played tennis for the first time in forever!
What I wore: I thought it was going to be cold today, so instead of wearing a skirt or shorts like I usually do for tennis, I wore the Sweaty Betty Adrenaline Ombre capris. Then I thought hey... let me match it perfectly with my Lululemon cool racerback in petit dot dune! Lorna Jane Clover bra under it, and Wilson Court Pro tennis shoes.
See how the dots on the cool racerback match the dots on the crops! Lol.
These crops are very pretty, but their quality is so shitty that it pisses me off. I've probably only worn them 4 times so far and aside from being totally sheer, the pink stitching near the waistband have come off in a big way. It's ridiculous. They were not cheap! I will never buy another item from Sweaty Betty based on how disappointing these crops have been.
I wore my Lululemon Swiftly 1/2 zip in ultra violet as to and from:
I went to Din Tai Fung at the Americana in Glendale for yummy juicy Chinese dumplings afterwards! Every time I go there I can't believe people are willing to wait in line for so long. But it does satisfy a certain craving! We got there at an off time though, so only waited 30 minutes. I even ordered a lychee smoothie to go with my dinner. So good! I think I really just workout a lot so I can eat good food. =D
