Athletic Wear for 2018

Great leggings to buy that are trendy and great quality.

Adidas recently dropped their new line of Athletic wear that I am obsessed with. Adidas already makes some of my favorite leggings, and tennis shoes, so it’s no surprise that I love this new line. 

First of all it’s Cobalt blue, which is my favorite color blue. It’s very vibrant and cheerful. I will say that they are very pricey $150 for leggings is a steep price but they are worth it. They last for years and never loose their elasticity. Plus they don’t fade, which I have had a few bold printed leggings that faded over time.

These are Adidas new Alphaskin 360 tights. ” These women’s body-hugging training tights are built to provide easy motion at the gym or in the great outdoors. They’re made of mesh-like Climachill that pulls heat away from your skin for cooling comfort. High compression offers muscle support while body-wrapping Alphaskin allows freedom of movement when your workout intensifies. UV protection helps guard against the sun’s rays.” 

I love that I am able to squat, run, stair climb and dead lift in these leggings and they don’t move, I never have to adjust them! They are steep but if you are looking for good leggings then you should grab these.

I am always looking for underground sites that sell athletic wear, mainly because I like to have something a little different that you can’t buy off the shelf. A friend of mine recently introduced me to this company that specializes in compression leggings, I was a little hesitant so I made her buy them 1st and try them out. Again, they are $80 for 1 pair, while I have no problem dropping that for a name brand pair, I am a little hesitant when I have never heard of the company. But, I can say these leggings are legit. She rocked these bright bold leggings and her ass looked AMAZING! This company has a lot of options and I highly recommend them. I am ordering a few pairs and will feature them for you guys!

The company is called D’Moda Sport Leggings and you can checkout their site here. They have an awesome Instagram that is worth following.

This next find is one I stumbled across on a facebook ad and loved their stuff! I specifically loved these leggings and ordered them as soon I saw them. They are a great price and I am happy with the quality.

They are available at Squat or Not. They have a few different leggings to choose from that range in prices.

The navy blue compliments his complexion and the sun glasses add the perfect touch.

Have you ever felt like your brain was on fire, your forehead feels like a hammer is going to town on it, and top it off with a horrible bought of nausea.  Sounds like hell, does it not. Well, its my personal hell right now! I am on day 4 of a high protein/low carb diet which consists of rice, oatmeal, chicken, tilapia, greens and almonds. I am in meal prep hell! I am constantly setting the timer on my phone for every 2 1/2 hours so I consume my next oh so delicious meal.

The first 2 days were amazing!  I was chalk full of energy, I didn’t have a single day where I wanted to lay down and rest. Usually I go hard in the gym, and start to feel the effects of it after I have been home for 3 or so hours. But I haven’t had that issue once I started the diet.

Sleep-Meme

Que in yesterday…….. I was EXHAUSTED when my alarm went off at 6 am. When I say exhausted, it felt like I was at a rave all night and I had only had about an hour of sleep….. But NOPE, I actually had a well rounded amount of sleep but just felt like I could close my eyes standing up, and manage to fall sleep. I still mustered up the energy to head to the gym and get my cardio in and work on my arms.

But today….. Holy mother of God…… I feel like I have been hit a MAC truck! My head was pounding, my stomach was in knots, and I wanted to throw the covers back over me and die. I have barely functioned today, I have spent the mast majority of the day laying around catching up on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. So, its safe to say I am not having the most productive day.

I guess I have always wonder what a zombie would feel like it, well I got my answer. I can’t say for sure its the lack of sugar and carbs in my diet, or if I am getting sick….. The jury is still out on that. Ill keep you posted……..

They have an array of dresses to choose from; you can find body-cons, skater, and more conservative dresses. It’s a one stop shop for me.

After Thanksgiving Hangover

After stuffing my face for a full 3 days, I surfaced from my liar to come back to the real world. I was knee deep in turkey and shopping like a feign. I decided to opt out of the traditional in-store shopping for Black Friday, last year I went and I wanted to run everyone over with my cart. Seriously, people go NUTS on black Friday. I am sorry but no amount of savings is worth my pride at the end of the day, hahaha! So online shopping it was for me!

I managed to snag up some good finds from Dicks Sporting Goods, NBA.Com, Kohls, Toys R Us, Best Buy and even Forever21. 

I didn’t want any of the ” Doorbusters” so it wasn’t hard to get most of the stuff I wanted. I ended up finding a lot of great deals at Dicks on Adidas, Under Armour, and Nike. I really shopped mostly for clothes for me, haha! 

I was good when it came to keeping up with my workout routine. My gym was closed on Thanksgiving but proceeded with normal hours the next day, so I kept it up and went everyday. My workout buddy and I changed up our routine and introduced a few new pieces of equipment that left me HELLA sore the next day, but it was so worth it.

Now that I have to give into my Grinch ways and start getting excited for Christmas. What I find strange is that usually Christmas is my favorite holiday but I find myself feeling ehhh about it. I even watched my favorite Christmas movie “National Lampoons Christmas” to try and sparks some interest. I flat lined y’all. I am officially Scrooge this year and I hate it. I want to be chipper and annoying like all the rest of the women I know, but I am stuck in mountain above Whoville :/

But, never to fear I am going to put together a few blogs on the top holiday wears and top deals so the rest of you guys can save some time and not have to scour the internet. The one thing I do love is shopping and dresses, so this should be a one stop shop when it comes to you next dress for the office party, or Girls Night Out.
