Coat // Joggers (now $79!) // Align tank // Gym (anything) Bag

I used to have a thing with oversized coats. I wanted warmth, but I didn’t want to look like a marshmallow. The struggle is real. Enter the sleet street long jacket. 

We recently ventured out to the Blue Ridge Mountains in Georgia. If you’re not familiar, it’s a beautiful range with hills of crimson and yellow leaves. Thankfully, I brought my sleet street long jacket to meet the chilly temps. I think everyone was jealous of my warm jacket that locks in warmth without sacrificing shape. Yes, it is possible to maintain shape while wearing 4 layers. 

Here’s why I love it: 

it’s slim, waterproof, has a two-way zipper, zippered pockets with hidden phone sleeves, and has a cinchable waist and removable hood. 

Winter’s best friend. Like the vest version, this jacket will sell out fast. I’m wearing the size 4, linked below. What do you think?

Thank you lululemon for sponsoring this post. All opinions my own.

PUFFER VEST in beige sz 4 // HOODIE in XL // LEGGINGS in sz 6 // BELT BAG //

Probably the most exciting thing I’ve added to my wardrobe lately is this vest in beige. I LOVE the color and it just screams fall, which is my favorite season. lululemon has the cutest styles for activewear, athleisure, and let’s be honest school drop off. I love to wear their clothes just lounging around the house. Their fabric is quality and stands the test of time. Hence the reminder to add to cart, because these pieces are already bestsellers that are selling out fast. I sized up because the hoodies kept selling out.

Happy Shopping!

Loving my new lululemon jogger set. I usually try and find a set for comfort, fabric softness and STYLE, of course! Lululemon usually hits it out of the park with all of the above. I like to wear the beyond the studio joggers with my on my level bag post workout or with my align tank.  So many options! See my healthy lifestyle grocery list below.

My weekly grocery list

Buying groceries is incredibly stressful, so let me take out some of the fluff and share with you my essential groceries items.  This is for me and my family of 7.  This is not my entire weekly list but items I always want on hand in my kitchen.

1)      7 Celery Stalks.  One for each day of the week

2)     Cinnamon Raisin Ezekiel Bread

3)     Avocados

4)     Cauliflower

5)     Butter Lettuce

6)     Almond Milk – Sweetened (max 7 grams sugar)

7)     LaCroix

8)     Lily’s Chocolate Bar (I like salted carmel)

9)     Smart Sweets Sour Gummy Bears

10)  Green Olives

I know, totally random…but totally the truth.  A survey of CEO’s revealed that these types of people eat the same thing for lunch every day.  At first, I thought about the monotony.  But then I realized, deciding what to eat is another decision that has to be made during the day. I have 5 kids, so I strive to keep things simple and keep the guess work out of life. Repeating what you eat every day saves you from making one more daily decision and therefore reduces a little stress.    

While my diet may seem boring, here it goes.  For breakfast I have a glass of celery juice and an almond milk latte.  For lunch, I’ve been making (or Kate has been making) avocado toast on cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread.  I take one avocado, smash it and add Chili Lime seasoning.  I then smear it on the cinnamon raisin toast.  For dinner and or pre-dinner snack I make a salad.  Levi enjoys my salads as well.  I use butter lettuce and sprinkle with sunflower seeds, parmesan cheese and green olives.  I drizzle my homemade balsamic dressing over the lettuce (link here).  Levi is practically made of my salads which is why he enjoys them with me.  For dinner, I eat whatever the family is eating and dessert is always a bite of Lily’s Chocolate Bars and or my favorite gummy bears.

Scallop bra // Scallop leggings // Adidas sneakers // Twist tee

Anyone else feel like it’s already been stressful year and it’s only January? One thing that has helped my stress tremendously is getting moving. We have converted our two-car garage into a gym and no regrets. I found 5 fitness favorites from Nordstrom to kick start the new year. I’m loving this scallop set from IVL, Nike cortez sneakers, the adidas I’m wearing, and this MZ Wallace gym bag slash mom bag that wipes clean. How cool is that? I’m loving that I can walk around the house with a house coat over this adorable workout se from IVL at Nordstrom. I’m going on day 3 of the workout gear and house coat combination. A Perfect post workout outfit. Do you have one? Grab a bag, shoes and new set and hit the gym!

If you’ve followed me for a while, you’d know I loooove my celery juice. I get asked a lot why I drink it every morning and what are the benefits. It has an array of health benefits from gut to bones and full of vitamins K, silicone and calcium. It been even known to strengthen bones. I’m at the point where I crave it every morning if you can believe that!

Today I’m wearing a new hoodie from lululemon, leggings and wrap. The latter is a perfect California warming layer. The latter sold out at press time, but I’m hoping for a restock! In the meantime, you can shop the following:

25″ Align Leggings // Scuba 1/2 Zip Hoodie // Bag

RECIPE:

1 bunch of organic celery (wash and cut off the end)

2 cups water (give or take here, sometimes I add more)

Add both the celery stalks and water into a Vitamix and blend. drain in a strainer, add ice and drink immediately.

Tip: drink immediately or store in a mason jar in the refrigerator. It tastes better consumed right away. To save time in the morning, chop and wash the celery stalks the night before. For my readers who want to go one step further, drink chlorophyll water! Who wants to join in and try it? be sure to let me know you did!

Shop me and Reid’s pre-workout from Walmart’s Wellness hub:

If you’re like me, I need a workout outfit to keep me motivated.

I found a great workout outfit at Walmart for a total of $40. I’m loving this hot pink workout bra with lots of comfort and padding.

The leggings have side pockets and suck you in nicely. Hello flattering leggings!

The jacket has pockets and perfect for post workout and washable. Win-win after Levi gets his hands full of oatmeal on me.

Sharing one of my favorite salad dressing recipes with you. I’ll guarantee that you’ll eat more salad once you use this dressing.

One of my favorite ways to workout at home is with a pilates ring.

5 Must have lululemon pieces for home workouts and curbside pick ups.

30L Bag // Align leggings sz 6 // Align tank sz 4 // Vest // Radiant jacket sz 6

What are the benefits of the pilates ring?

It helps strengthen the pelvic floor, back and stomach muscles. It helps to stabilize the spine and pelvic floor, while training coordination and balance. I used it here when I was pregnant with Levi.

How do you use it?

There’s so many ways that this ring was aptly named “the magic circle!” It can be used between your knees, legs, and arms.

How do you stay motivated?

New gear! I love my lululemon align leggings, tank and vest! It’s been 40’s here in SoCal in the mornings, so a vest is appropriate for running errands. And the lululemon logo is on the hood of the vest, super cute!

What can you fit in the 30L bag?

Everything! Mine has keys, wallet, snacks, water bottle, receipts, and change of clothing in it. It wipes clean and makes a great gift. I call it my mom slash gym bag.

Does the Align tank have support?

Yes! Light support and lots of comfort. I prefer the violet verbena color.
