Inspiration boards + fitness necessities for 2015

Hi guys! How’s the day going? Hope you’ve had an amazing one. I took an INSANE Barry’s Bootcamp class this morning (my first one!!) and I’ll be sharing a Focus On post next week.

In the meantime, I’m really excited to share some of the beautiful inspiration boards that were sent my way. If you didn’t have time this week to make one, it would be fun to take some time to work on one this weekend. I’ve found that inspiration boards are an excellent tool in helping me remain mindful, and create daily actions, towards my goals. You can even pin an inspiration board now, so there are no excuses. 😉

Here is a collage of beautiful boards I received this week:


In the theme of making changes for the new year, it’s also a great time to check out fitness gear and update the true necessities, like socks, sports bras and workout underwear. Once I forgot my gym bag and had to do cardio in a regular underwire bra. It was terrible. This morning, I got rid of some mismatched socks (I swear, they disappear in the washer and never make it to the dryer) and also got some great sports bras last night via the Victoria’s Secret semi-annual sale. 

Some more faves:


Bombas. I recently did a post for them (they’re like the TOMs of socks!) and are my new favorite pair. 

Balega. These are another favorite pair, and are great if you like thin socks. 

lucy. These are awesome for running! Thin, stretchy and sweat-wicking.

Sports bras and fitness underwear:

Victoria’s Secret Incredible. Super supportive, soft and flattering.

Moving Comfort. Ideal for high-impact workouts and classes.

lululemon Flow Y and Ta-ta Tamer. I love the Flow Y for everyday and low-intensity classes (like Core40 or yoga), and the Ta-ta tamer for high intensity.

A post about gym underthings is here, too. :)


Z-quicks or Nanos (for cross-training). I got a black pair of Z-quicks a few weeks ago (and love them!) and am still on a mission for a new pair of running shoes since mine have officially bit the dust.

What’s your all-time favorite workout sneaker or sports bra? Any fitness apparel fails? 😉

What’s on the fitness plan for the weekend?

Hope you have a great night!

Show me your [inspiration] board


Happy almost New Year! 😉 I love this time of year for many reasons; and selfishly, I really love it because my classes at the gym are extra packed.  Some of favorite moments of 2014: -Moving to San Diego (See you again, one of these days, Tucson house!) –Livi’s second birthday -Traveling to Mountain Trek […]

My 2015 fitness resolutions


Hi! How’s the morning going? Hope you had a wonderful and relaxing holiday weekend! I have some fun Tucson pics to share, but in the meantime, I thought it would be fun to talk about fitness resolutions for the new year. While I’m kind of on the fence about resolutions (I am a  HUGE fan […]

Meals, fitness and Fitbit

Hiiii Hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend! After reading your suggestions and doing some research, I ordered a FitBit Flex. (It was marked down to $89 on Amazon and with Prime shipping, I got it the next day!) I really loved the design of the Jawbone up, but had heard issues of them breaking, so I […]

Tips for goals + random resolutions


I’m usually right there in the middle of the New Years hoopla of big changes. While I don’t like the pressure of an ambiguous date -if you want to make a change, why not just do it then, in the moment?- I can definitely agree with the fresh, crispy feeling of a new year, chance […]

In the New Year…

2012 was an amazing, amazing year. It definitely went by a little more quickly than I would have liked, but was a life-changer. Livi was born in the very beginning of the year (I’m still in shock that her birthday is next week!) and we’ve also added a fur sister for Bella. Our house and […]

Turn over a new leaf


It’s been quite the whirlwind Friday so far! It started nice and early: (the other alarm is from one Christmas morning when I woke up at 7 and Liv was still sleeping) For the past 8 months, I’ve had a tiny human alarm clock. She sings beautiful songs and does funny things to wake up- […]

Back to the inspiration board


Oh, hey Monday. You sneak up on us so quickly 😉 Since I’m on another breakfast kick (eating the same thing everyday until I get sick of it) let’s talk about inspiration. Yesterday was the day of the half marathon that I thought I’d be walk/running. It was fun to have a specific fitness event […]

Hi, Thai


I love the weekend. So does Bell, who is definitely back to 100% after her night of sickies. She’ll shake her tail off at everyone, beg for chicken, snuggle… and give you the stink eye when you leave to go to dinner. The Pilot had to work a little later last night to catch up […]

Dinner by the bro


As much as I like getting dolled up for a night out, I also appreciate the places where I can wear lululemon and moccasins. For dinner tonight, the Pilot and I went to one of the restaurants at work. Since it’s a health resort, there is an amazing abundance of healthy options. It’s lower on […]

Inspiration Station


Every year, I’ll do a little arts and crafts project: an inspiration board to hang in the closet, and help me remain mindful of my goals throughout the year. I’ve fallen in love with Pinterest, but there’s something to be said about having a tangible board in an easily visible place. Here’s my board for […]
