First of Many: B&W OTS Top

Hellllo beauties ++ happy Wednesday! We’re halfway through the week + I could not be more excited about that. I know it’s been a hot minute since we’ve last talked (*sigh*), but I’m SO excited for today’s post for two reasons. 1) I finally put my doubts of looking normal in an OTS top behind me + bought one!! + 2) this was my very first Amazon clothing purchase + definitely will not be my last! Keep reading for all the details on this look 🙂

Workout With Me @ Aerial Barre Yoga!

Hi there Squatters! I’ve seen aerial yoga become increasingly popular over the past few years, so I decided to give it a try earlier this year + it was so much fun! Definitely much harder than it looks, but fun nonetheless. Hanging upside down + all around in a silk hammock requires a lot of core strength (plus a little bit of trust), so it’s a great workout. So when I came across this aerial barre yoga class I knew I had to try it. I’ve never done a barre class before (on my to-try list though!), but I figured why not combine the two and give a shot. Y’all…it was such a challenging workout! I was actually sweating and yes, there were a few times I wanted to give up + leave, but I’m glad I didn’t. ;).

My Work It, Twerk It Playlist

What did people do the days before headphones and on-the-go music came to be? How did one find any motivation to work out, go run, and do all of that without any good pump-up, feel-good music?! I have no idea how they did it, but I’m so glad we’ve made it this far where we can just plug in a pair of headphones to our phones (err, “connect wirelessly”? #iPhone7 #smh 🙄 #NoThanks), and go for a run. It’s pretty much the only way you’ll get me to work out, so it’s safe to say that music is an extremely important factor to my workout plan. With that said, I wanted to share my motivation with y’all!

Workout With Me @ Tabata!

“3…2…1…WORK!” If you ever take a Tabata class, you’ll hear a guy on a recorded track say that about 64 times during the hour long class. Tabata has been one of my favorite forms of working out lately because 1) it’s a different workout but with the same overall class structure every time, and 2) it’s a fun, upbeat way to get your workout in!
