The best workout tights

Hi friends! How’s the morning going? Latest on the Family page is up here

Here is your latest squat challenge if you’re following along the Squatember calendar: 15 squats, 15 jump squats, 15 plie squat jumps, 30-second wall sit, 45 seconds of sumo burpees. Let me know how it goes!

So, all of my years in retail did come in handy. 

Best workout tights

(Still folding like a boss haha.)

Finding the right pair of workout pants can be tricky business. For starters, they can be expensive. While the right pair of workout tights can last a couple of years (or longer! I have some pairs that are at least 4 years old), you don’t want to invest in a pair that is going to fall apart, show your undies (or lack of underwear…) in down dog, or feel itchy/tight during your favorite workout class. 

And… let’s be real. The right pair of workout tights is kind of like an amazing bra. Everything just looks and feels better. 😉

Why and how to meditate

Breathe in, breathe out. Wait, if I’m thinking about breathing, I’m not really mediating. Shoot. Silence. Think of silence. What are we having for dinner tonight? Oh yeah, lasagna. Stop, be quiet. Meditate. Om shanti. I love when they sing that at the end of yoga class. What time is yoga tomorrow? Be quiet. Meditate.


(I was going to name this post something like “Let me find my crafting scissors” or something like that, but I couldn’t even think of a *tool* I could insert into the title. Let this be a testament of my non-craftiness.) Hi friends! How’s the morning going? The day is going well over here! I’ve […]
