workout gear / the style eater

So there’s something I haven’t shared yet that I’ve been meaning to tell you and I wanted to make sure it stuck before I started really bragging about it, but I started working out. FOR 7 WEEKS STRAIGHT NOW. Can you believe it? Sorry for the iPhone quality pic by the way, we can’t all be top bloggers.

But it took 28 years and a planned wedding to really kick my ass into gear. I’m doing a 12 week program by Kayla Itsines called Bikini Body Challenge. Have you heard of it? It’s genius. I’m feeling really great about it, but it’s also f’ing hard as hell, excuse my language. Anyway, I promise to share all my thoughts on it, including some before & afters, because what’s a workout post without before & afters? But first, let’s talk about something more important:

Workout clothes.

Sure I’ve always owned workout clothes but I never needed them until now. So that means I’m getting lots of use out of them, but also I’m desperately in need of more. Like way more. Anyway, I figured the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (best sale of the year IMO) would be the perfect time to stock up because it’s all the new good stuff but for cheap.

I have my eyes on these sneakers, these leggings (I’m all about breathable material), this sports bra (I got a small chest so I’m fine with the low-impact bras), this racerback tank, this long sleeve tee, and these sweatpants for post-workout comfies.

Here’s everything from the sale that I’m eyeing (if you’re in Feedly, click the post title to view!):

Also, if you’re not taking advantage of this Kiehl’s lotion during the Anniversary Sale, then you are MISSING OUT.

Wearing Outdoor Voices in the jump roping pic, specifically this bra and these pants. Also, no one told me that jump roping is a swift kick in the pants. Such a good cardio workout (omg I don’t know who I am anymore).
