I realize the statement I am about to make most of you will think I am crazy for saying. Honestly when I tell you this, and trust me it has not always been this way but… I have grown to really like [cold weather running]. So I am convinced that this has something to do with the fact that I played a spring sport most of my life… but that spring sport was sometimes played through some of the coldest days. We had no other choice but to just… deal with it and figure out a way to feel our hands through it all. So naturally, this is the way I look at my running days that are out in the bitter cold.
I live in athletic clothing <you guys know this>… and specifically in spring I find myself really loving the sporty and living in it even when I am not headed too or from work. It’s easy. It looks cute and even though your are comfortable you look stylish and put together. The Bomber Jacket leads the charge on this look. You can wear it with leggings, jeans or even a jersey dress. Its a staple and one that every girl needs in their closet.
The one I have on in this picture is unfortunately no longer available but I have picked four other of my favorites all different but still have similar style. You will love’em. Promise.
Athleta Bomber – I love how the bright white for spring and the way this one hugs at the top of your hips. The detail of the buttons on the side and how the big waistband allows the fabric to balloon in the back is flattering for all body types.
Nylon Bomber Jacket – Everyone needs this one. Classic black. You can wear it sporty or add jeans to it and give it a more upscale look. It also comes in green if you are looking for a pop of color. ON SALE Under $35.00
Floral Color Block Bomber Jacket – Similar to the pattern I have on in the picture, this pop of color along with the floral pattern really allows this to be a great transitional piece.
Flight Jacket Bomber – I LOVE the fit of this jacket. The detail of the more industrial zipper and perfectly placed pockets add to it all. Three great color options, you can’t go wrong with any. Highly recommended.

I feel like sometimes I live in the gym. I know its my job and please do not misunderstand me when I say it can get old… but what I mean by this is you simply have to mix it up! Keep it fresh.
… because its that time of year
… because its that time of year
Maybe it is just me… but it’s the time of year that all I want to do is live in leggings!
So, I have decided to share with you some different ways to turn your “workout leggings” into a stylish get up!
From my favorite UGG boots to the warmest oversized scarf. Just small additions to a pair of leggings can turn your look from flab to fab!
Now, no excuses needed to take off your leggings!
You all know by now how much I love a treadmill workout. I have gotten the question a lot… do you really #runeveryday ?
The answer is YES, with the exception of Sundays. I always try and take off on Sunday’s and give my legs and my mind a break from working out. After all, it is my job so its healthy to take some time away for that and reset.
Group fitness defiantly holds a very close place in my heart. I don’t just say that because its my full time job … well, maybe I do… BUT… I also think it is one amazing way to get a killer workout in for many different reasons.
A lot of people say they are scared or intimidated by Group Fitness. My response to that… if some place or someone makes you feel uncomfortable or like you are not welcomed – LEAVE. That place does not deserve YOU!

I get the question a lot… what do you do for a workout?
I love to run., spin and I enjoy yoga and barre. I also like to feel strong… or I should word it in a way that reads…
Do you ever walk out of your house with 5 bags in hand? Balancing your keys in one hand and your coffee in the other. Yup, thats me! Most times I look like I am leaving for a few days but in reality its just a couple of hours. Lets just say I like to be OVER-prepared. Sometimes this can become obsessive but I always like to feel like I have everything that is needed just “incase” I may need it.
I am typically going from class, to the gym, back to class, maybe a mid day coffee meeting and then back to class, possibly even an evening trip to the driving range (working on my golf game, yes still working…). I typically make a stop at home here and there but you get the idea.
The one bag I always make sure is packed to perfection is my gym bag. The gym is as place where I take that time for me. It’s the time I get to work on whatever I want to work on. I put my head phones on, listen to whatever music I feel like and just get lost in my own thoughts. With that said, everything that is packed in the gym bag is there for a reason. That bag has no “extras” or “unnecessaries”. It is packed with needed things and things that are personally important to me in order for me to have a productive time at the gym.
I often have people look at me and say “what is in that thing?”
Well here it goes 🙂 …
