So, I think I mentioned last week that I have decided to push myself even harder now at the gym. I always thought I pushed hard, but maybe I need to up my pain threshold! I think that's the only way changes will happen. I've been trying to be more conscious of my form too, and hold just a little bit longer for each rep. Anyway, I think it's working. At least, I feel it more during the workouts as well as in the next day or so. I just gotta eat better! I've been not so great with my diet choices this week, since I've had quite a few obligations where I had to eat out. Last night I went to a fancy birthday party in Bel Air, and they had sooooo many yummy little desserts that were tempting me all night! I guess I'm really a fat kid at heart. Sigh...
What I did: Lower body weights.
What I wore: Lorna Jane Erika tank (my bf thinks this tank is really ugly because the bra and tank colors don't go well lol) with Lululemon Empower crop in coal/passion and Nike Free 3.0s in gray/crimson.
What I did: Shoulder & tri, then 30 minutes on the gauntlet.
What I wore: Lululemon 105 F Singlet in bruised berry with Lululemon Free To Be bra in very green under it. Beyond Yoga Hyper Stripe long legging, worn as 7/8 legging, and same Nike shoes as Monday.
Wednesday 10/15 - Rest day
What I did: Glute/back/bi
What I wore: Lorna Jane Janet mesh tank with Lululemon Free To Be bra in faded zap under. Lululemon Team Spirit crop in coal/chirp, and new Nike shoes that has all the same colors as the tank!! The Nike Free 5.0 TR Fit 4 in venom green/turbo green.
More green/teal as to and from - the Alo Yoga Exhale long sleeve in fresh:
What I did: Legs, then 30 minutes on the gauntlet.
Splits59 Pose FX racerback pullover as to and from:
What I did: Upper body supersets, and then treadmill plyo and intervals for about 25 minutes.
What I wore: Actually first time wearing this tank since I bought it - the Lorna Jane Wild at Heart tank, with Lorna Jane Somersault bra under it. I really like the style of muscle tanks, and this one is especially cute because it shows the back of the bra. But the two twisted braid things on the back makes the tank kind of back heavy so I had to keep pulling it down in the front every 10 minutes or so. Oh well, I still liked it. I wore it with Splits59 Nova Viper capri, and printed Nike Free 3.0s.
I love bright colors, but I do also love the monochromatic look sometimes.
I had fun with my red extension highlights last night for the fancy birthday party! I actually bought more colors of these extensions, in hot pink, purple, and blue! So fun!
And of course, I used my Sultra Bombshell to do my hair. I seriously love this curler and don't know why I waited so long to buy it.
Anyway, here's the whole outfit: Hale Bob animal print silk dress with Vince leather scuba jacket over, and Sam Edelman Mallory wedges since no stilettos were allowed for this party (new floors). I also carried my trusted Balanciaga city bag.
You can't see it in the photo, but in that bag is my new Salvadore Ferragamo continental wallet! It's actually my almost 3 months late birthday present from my bf, because... he's a guy? Lol. He didn't know what to get me so I finally said just get me this wallet! I like Ferragamo leather goods. They are really good quality without being very recognizable, and their price point is more reasonable than many other similar scale brands.
I like the particular design of this wallet the best. I've been looking at a lot of wallets the past year or so and this one is my favorite. It opens up completely, has plenty of storage compartments, and I like the horseshoe!
Look at allllll these card slots, as well as a zipper coin pocket!
I actually found this wallet on Ruelala for a $150 discount off of retail price, so he didn't even have to spend full price or pay sales tax! I think it's a pretty nice present for myself lol. I'm going to use it to death. Maybe this is the way to go for future birthdays and holidays? Forego the surprise element and get what you want for yourself... headache saved for bf... Everybody's happy?
