Workout pick-me-up

Alright- the honest truth- this week, I am now 34weeks pregnant and I’m lacking motivation. Motivation to shower, get myself dressed, and definitely to work out. The fatigue has set back in, I’m not sleeping well, and let’s face it- around 4:30 every day it’s like I’m suddenly hauling around an incredibly heavy cinder block. Gravity wins by that point every day and my muscles and ligaments just seem to give up.

BUT, I’ve told myself, as of today, GET OVER IT! 6 more weeks and I’ve done so well up to this point maintaining a healthy-ish, fit-ish pregnancy so I can’t stop now! What have I said before about one of the ways to get your motivation back when you’ve lost it with working out/running?

New gear! ūüôā

Here are some of my favorites right now that are sure to get you motivated if you’ve lost your UMPH like I have!

Ash’s obsessionsScreen Shot 2016-12-21 at 8.37.14 AM.png‘Pomeline’ Crystal Necklace. This would make a gorgeous necklace for Christmas, NYE, or any time after that. The jewel tones and detailing make it the perfect statement necklace.

Anthropologie Pommed Lodge Beanie. You saw Aj wear it in our Anthro 40% off sale post, and it sold out quickly! Now its back, and on sale again. So, I snagged one myself.

Catherine Skirt. As you have seen here, I am loving velvet right now. This skirt is no exception. The great navy color with black velvet floral and dramatic high low detail is perfect for the holidays.

Aj’s obsessionsScreen Shot 2016-12-21 at 8.16.12 AM.pngGreylin Faux Fur Coat. I love how different this jacket is! Plus, the soft color looks great with anything.

Ted Baker Dress. I have been obsessed with this dress for awhile. Now, it is on sale! The gold, neat print, cap sleeve, and cute shape make it a win in my book.

Scallop Edge Lace Top. Everyone needs a gorgeous lace top. Dress it up or down- it completes the outfit – no need to hunt around for jewelry or something to add! Did I mention it is under $80!? It comes in white and black.


Ash’s obsessions

Steve Madden ‘Slithur’ Sandal now on sale for $89.90! (was $109.95). ¬†As previously discussed in The Caged Heel post these heels¬†super hot and they pair just as easily with jeans as they do a flowy maxi dress.

Rails ‘Hunter’ Plaid Button Front Shirt. ¬†Because rails makes the best plaid shirts. ¬†Super soft, super comfy, and perfect as we transition to fall.

ASOS Embroidered Mesh and Lace Midi Dress. ¬†I’ve got a wedding to attend next month and I’m thinking this may be the dress I go with. ¬†Great fall color and beautiful lace, all for only $113!

Aj’s obsessions

Screen Shot 2016-09-12 at 4.58.40 PM.pngVega Sport Recovery Accelerator .  I already used Vega for my protein powders, so when I found this, I had to give it a shot. It may be a mental thing, but about halfway through my training plan I started using this after my SOS {something of substance} runs, and I feel like it has helped tremendously!

Jeffrey Campbell Taggart Bootie. These were a hot boot last fall and they have hit the scene again as a must have! I love mine and Ashley owns them in a couple colors.

BLANKNYC ‘Good Vibes’ Distressed Skinny Jean.¬†¬†I am obsessed with these jeans. They look amazing¬†on everyone, great fit, good distressing and an even better price- $88!
