Can y’all believe it’s September already? I’m taking advantage of the beautiful weather and spending as much time outside as possible. Fall is my favorite season, but it also brings rain and unpredictable weather conditions. For the last six months I spent most of my work outs doing indoor activities from strength training to indoor cycling or treadmill. But since our move I have been loving all my time spent outdoors. From daily walks, to bike rides and splashing in the pool (that counts, right?)I don’t think I’ve ever described myself as an outdoor enthusiast but I always enjoyed my outdoor runs, strolls around neighborhoods and even hiking on vacations. But, since moving to this new community, I have truly embraced the outdoor lifestyle. It makes me so happy. If you feel like you are in a fitness rut, I highly encourage you to go outside and find something you love. For me, it started with simple walks around our cul de sac and from there I met new neighbors. Soon enough it became a daily occurrence that I looked forward to. Now that John surprised me with a new bike, I look forward to daily rides. If you are new to getting into outdoor activities or you’re looking to freshen up your fitness wardrobe, I highly encourage you to check out Backcountry.

Sweaty Betty has always been one of my favorite workout brands. The super sculpt high waisted leggings are a true staple in my work out wardrobe. They give you the hugged feeling and have pockets! The color I’m wearing is black marl and they fit tts. The sports bra is also from Sweaty Betty. It does run on the small side so I do recommend sizing up. I love the flowy silhouette of this tank top. Sizes are selling out but similar styles can be found here and here.
If you are looking to boost your fitness routine, a great place to start would be with daily walks or start small and aim to do 3-4 walks a week. For me, it’s a great way to get to know my new neighborhood and local walking trails. I have been very conscious about increasing my daily activity from a sedentary lifestyle. Back in 2020, I was averaging 2k steps which sounds horrible, right? Now, I have consistently achieved over 10k steps daily. Should we bring back the 10k step challenge? 10k steps in 10 days. Some days its easier than others but it definitely motivates you to keep moving.
It’s no secret that our family loves Yeti tumblers and mugs. Everyone has one including the kids. My favorite is the 26 ounce straw cup. It fits in the cupholder of the car. This yeti water bottle is great for a bike ride because it has a lid. I use this mug for my morning coffee – it keeps it so hot.
I sadly had an older version of these sneakers that got lost in the move, so I was so happy to get a new pair. The blush color is gorgeous and they fit tts. Some colorways are now on sale.
