Workout Wednesday-Back, Biceps, and Glutes with Active Wear by Athleta

Good Morning Workout Lovers! It is Wednesday again and it is time for Workout Wednesday. I am in week 37 of pregnancy so my workout will still be a little tame. I will interested to see how these work outs will change once I have the baby and can get back into actual training. I can’t wait! Today I will be doing a short back, biceps and glutes workout. I will also be finishing it off with an incline walk on the treadmill. Here is a look at what I have planned for my workout today:

  • 3 sets of 15 reps
  • single arm dumbbell rows
  • deadlifts
  • standing bicep curls
  • hammer curls
  • plie squats
  • leg press
  • 30 min incline treadmill walk

With spring weather coming soon I have been obsessing over the awesome colors that Athleta has to offer in active wear this spring. If you have not had a chance to take a look you should head over to Athleta and check out what they have to offer. As a new Athleta shopper I just as pleased with the quality of the active wear as I am with the fashionable looks that they put out this season. I was even able to find some great pieces that I have been enjoying during my pregnancy. I do have a gift card that I am looking forward to using after this baby makes it appearance in a couple of weeks! I wanted to share with you some of my favorite Athleta looks that are available right now:

Fast Track Half Zip AthletaThis is the Fast Track Half Zip, this awesome piece comes in 5 colors. It is a great layering base that is completely breathable. An option for all the unpredictable weather we have been having!

Bay Beach Capri From AthletaThe Bay Beach Capri comes in 3 colors, my favorite is this heather grey. This is a great item for the gym, walking on the beach or just lounging around. I love wearing ankle length capris in the spring weather.

Pacifica UPF Tank From AthletaThe Pacifica UPF Tank is available in 7 vibrant colors. This is a great under layer for runners or any other activity you want to do in this tank. I am tempted to add a couple of these tanks to my active wear collection.

Samsula High Top Shoes by Off The Beaten Track®I have been seeing high tops all over the place this year. These are the Samsula High Top Shoes by Off the Beaten Track. The high tops feature a hidden wedge in the base of the shoe to give a little lift to those of us that may need one. Another great feature is that they are leather with an edgy snake-skin like texture to them. definitely not your regular pair of high tops!

I hope I have given you some motivation to go workout today and also to go and check out Athleta and up your active wear wardrobe! I know I am so excited to buy some of these pieces, maybe I will get this whole outfit! What type of workout will you be doing today on Workout Wednesday? What is your favorite active wear brand?

Fit Style to Street Style with Athleta

Good Morning Guys! I posted earlier in the week Fit Style to Street Style. I had recently been asked by Athleta to try out some of their new pieces from the spring line and wear them to work out and switch them up to be able to wear them out the rest of the day as well. I chose pieces that were versatile and could be worn at other places other than in the gym. I can not say enough great things about the quality of the clothing that I received from Athleta and I love all the great new spring pieces. here is a look at what I was able to do with the Printed No Sweatin’ It Sharkbite Top.

Fit Style to Street StyleThis outfit was perfect for going out for Sunday Brunch. I paired the Printed No Sweatin’ It Sharkbite Top with a tank from PinkBlush Maternity, leggings from H&M, scarf from H&M and boots from Steve Madden.

Fit Style to Street Style

Heading out to run some errands I added me leather jacket from Danier to my Printed No Sweatin’ It Sharkbite Top. and I was ready to go!

Street Style to FIt Style

Once I arrived back home I decided to fit in a workout before dinner. I put my hair up added a head band from American Eagle and my woven converse and I was all set to hit the gym. The Printed No Sweatin’ It Sharkbite Top was a perfect piece to workout in. It is very comfortable and a great layering piece.

What are your favorite pieces that you can switch up through out the day?

Fit Style to Street Style

Good Morning Guys! I hope everyone had a great weekend. We spent ours with some relaxation and a lot of errand running. With most weekends being that way i need versatile pieces in my wardrobe that can go for one thing to the other quickly. Recently I had been given the opportunity to try some fitness pieces and work them into my regular wardrobe by Athleta. I was familiar with the brand but had not used them yet. This was a great opportunity to try them out and I am so glad that I did. Here is a look at some of the outfits I made on Saturday to get me through the day. The Athleta piece that I used to get me through the day was the Striped Shiva Top in Tulip Red Stripe. It is a great color combination for transitioning into spring.

Lifestyle BlogThis is how my day started off. I was headed to an early lunch with Jon. It is kind of our Saturday routine. I paired the Striped Shiva top with a sweater from H&M, leggings from H&M, tank from PinkBlush Maternity, boots by UGGS and my Michael Kors bag. All together it makes a great weekend look.

Lifestyle BlogLater on in the afternoon I changed it up for a little grocery shopping. I kept on the Striped Shiva Top, leggings from H&M, tank by PinkBlush maternity, boots from American Eagle, handbag by Ralph Lauren. I then added the City Chick Coat also from Athleta. Love this coat it is so cute and very light weight.

My last look of the day was for my quick workout before dinner. I kept on the Striped Shiva Top, leggings, tank and added some Nike running shoes. Put up my hair and I was ready to hit the gym!
