Top 5 Workout Items

I am just getting back into my workout routine… aka I am really sore and can barely move, thanks Brandon for yesterday’s workout! But, getting back into the swing of things has me thinking about my next workout and how much I used to love it.

So, in the spirit of having fitness on the brain, I’m sharing my top 5 workout items that I can’t live without!

  1. Beats Wireless Headphones – total wishlist item, but having music while I workout is a total must-have and having a good sound system for that music is high on my list. My favorite Pandora station to jam out to while working out is Swedish House Mafia, I mean that upbeat tempo doe!
  2. Mizuno Running Shoes – I’m in desperate need of a new pair, but Mizunos’ have been my running shoe since college! If you’re looking for a new pair of running shoes, I highly recommend going to your local running store where they fit you based on your needs. If you’ve never been to a specialized running shoe store, go check it out! They watch you run, measure the arch in your foot and provide a recommendation based on your foot strike. Locally, I really like Fit2Run in Boca Raton, FL. If you’re in Jax, check out my friends at JRC.
  3. Yoga Mat – My yoga mat is a must at all times. It’s perfect for stretching and strengthening, it is also perfect for those who prefer HIT and body-bearing workouts over the machines. But if I am being completely honest, I am totally eyeing Lululemon’s The Mat yoga mat – I’ve only heard great things!
  4. My Gym Bag – umm, need I say more. I love this Nike duffle gym bag. It has a compartment for EVERYTHING.
  5. Trigger Point Foam Roller – I cannot say enough good things about my foam roller. It is my life saver! If you do not have a roller, go out, right now, don’t walk, RUN to your nearest running store and add this to your arsenal of workout gear! I promise you won’t regret it.

Aside from loving these must-have items for working out, my top 3 apps to help you stick to your goals, can be found here.

2015 Best Nine Moments

We’re just hours away from ringing in the new year, so I better be quick! 

The new year gives us an opportunity to reset and start fresh, it’s an opportunity to create new goals and build upon the foundation of what we started. Each new year brings us new adventures and endless possibilities, and I can’t wait to see what 2016 will bring! But, before I move ahead and put my goals and bucket list items for the new year down on paper, I’m sharing my #2015bestnine moments here on the blog, so without further ado, here they are:

1. Mike and I got married! 

This goes without saying, this was one of the major highlights from 2015! It was such a remarkable weekend shared with our closest friends and family I wish we could do it all over again!

During our honeymoon we disconnected from society, traveled to the depths of Mexico and overcame my fear of heights, at least during the zip lining adventure (oh and an angel saved our honeymoon, read more about it here

9. Took a class on modern calligraphy

This was so awesome, I highly recommend it to anyone who is into fonts and calligraphy like I am! Papel & Co. put together an amazing afternoon of learning in a beautiful setting!
