flex friday: UPDATED what’s in my gym bag!

HAPPY FRIDAY, LOVEBUGS!!

i’m gonna be honest here for a quick second. i’m obsessed with “what’s in my bag” posts, and i think it’s because of how nosey i tend to be.

it’s the truth! if you tell me you have lipsticks in your handbag at all times, i want to know how many, which ones and where you got them. sorry not sorry. 😛
the very first flex friday post launched last july, and ever since i saw that pop up on my timehop i’ve been wanting to do another post just like it.
it’s crazy how much you can change and grow in only a year. in that first video i was super shy and kind of quiet (hard to believe, i know), i was nervous someone was going to point out the messy hotel background and i thought i needed to look super cute and put together because HELLO! i’m a blogger.
well that’s all false. just about all of my flex friday videos are filmed just before or just after the gym when i look like death. i don’t look cute and half the time i don’t even have makeup on. my videos now are crazy, silly and i leave a lot of bloopers in because i want to be nothing but real with you guys.
in the words of demi lovato, “this is real. this is me.” lol
okay i’m done trying to be sentimental.
let’s get into this post, shall we?

speaking of change, my bag did not (i just love the convenience of a backpack, okay?!), but some of my supplements and gym necessities did!



flex friday: a whole new me? + prep announcement!

these pics ^^ are so old. like a few weeks after my last show old…but i couldn’t remember if i had posted about this fun gym shoot, so here’s a few of my favorite shots.
let’s just say my baby muscles have grown a lot since that day. #gainz

okay, serious time.
i’m getting real with y’all today.
i had a little change in mindset not too long ago that i think is going to totally change the game for me. i’m stepping it up a notch, and i mean business.
i hope you get something out of today’s video, because i know when i filmed this i was in the super motivational feels. i knew that i needed to get this clip before the moment passed.
but i’m not kidding. this next prep season is going to be next level, and I’M SO EXCITED.

before i go, i just wanted to thank all of you lovebugs for the continued love and support!
it means the world to me!!

i don’t think anyone truly understands how happy athleisure makes me.
i mean, HELLO?! it’s finally acceptable to wear gym clothes in public (can i get an amen?), and chic gym wear is now available just about anywhere.
who doesn’t want to be on trend AND comfy and the same time? that’s what i thought.
i’m not super comfortable wearing super cropped crop tops or straight up sports bras (blame it on the long torso), and you definitely won’t find this girl in spandex shorts anywhere but at home, however i have been taking bits and pieces of inspo from some of my favorite gals.
like tying up a simple top to hit just above the waist of your pants (yes, leggings are pants.), or maybe throwing a windbreaker (hello 90s) over a sports bra. now that i could do!
and don’t forget the shoe game. it’s the quintessential part of the athleisure trend. fashion sneakers are all the rage right now…so keep your gym shoes for the gym. 😉
i rounded up some of the pieces i’ve been eyeing or have bought recently.
adidas is killing the game, let me tell you.

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1472089968792?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);
just realized that everything is black, white and gray….no sorry about it. 😛
