Working on My Fitness Part 2

May 23, 2014

Thank you for all the great feedback last week and suggestions!  I am happy to report I took action this week and got up early and ran two mornings.  It was such a good feeling to have my workout done for the day!

If you are in the market for new running shoes I love my New Balance 890 shoes.  They are super awesome.  They are lightweight but still offer plenty of support!

I wore one of my new favorite Zella outfits.  Lately I have been a big fan of the exercise skirt.  Sometimes I have a hard time finding shorts to run in that don’t ride up so I end up in either leggings or a skirt. I like the idea of the skirt because it makes such a cute outfit for those days even when you don’t workout!

I love the streamline fit of the tee shirt, it really sucks you in.  It comes in a bunch of different colors, but I always love a black workout tee.

 and of course you need an action shot:)  But in all seriousness I love the side rouching on the skirt.  The skirt is super comfortable too.

A great outfit for working out (or not).

Best part is Nordstrom marked down a ton of the Zella stuff as part of their semi-annual sale.  Scroll thru to see some of my favorites.  I ordered two more of my favorite tank top.

  1. Love that outfit! It's not skin tight and has lots of pretty ruching! I can't do shorts either. I'm tugging at them the whole time! It's too hot for pants though!

  2. You crack me up with those action shots, love it. You look amazing and good for you for werkin out so early, I am impressed!

  3. Love the new outfit! I might have to grab a few of those workout tees. Which colors of the tank did you end up getting? I'm sad your hot pink one isn't available online and they didn't have my size in the store! Love my light purple on though!

  5. I'm obsessed with my Athleta skirt that has leggings attached to it. They are so cute for running errands and/or working out! Have a great weekend.
