My Workout Style + Cardio Routine

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

Outfit deets:
* Bench jacket (similar & love this one).
* Mondetta tank (love this one).
* MPG leggings (dark grey, on sale & a personal fave).

I'm not someone who really enjoys cardio, however, up until about a year ago, it was a huge part of my workout.  I started running about seven years ago, on a treadmill, at the gym.  I had never run before and never thought I could run until a friend shared her running 'program' (see below) and I tried it myself and eventually 'became' a runner, I guess.  

Over the years, I've taken my running outside and at first disliked it but eventually preferring it to running on a treadmill.  The most I have run is 6 kilometres (3.73 miles) and the most I have run without stopping is 5 kilometres--which was a pretty proud day considering when I started, my goal was to run 1 kilometer without stopping!

I have taken a break from running since the Spring, but I have been trying to incorporate more cardio into my workout routine by going for walks at lunch, climbing the stairs in my building and using the bike at the gym (while catching up on my favourite YouTubers).  Every little bit helps.

Weekend Recap: iPhone Snaps

Monday, November 17, 2014

Happy Monday ladies!  This weekend was productive and enjoyable: I got all the laundry done, cleaned the condo and spent time with friends.  A well rounded weekend.  I've got a ton of photos to share with you so here we go...

Outfit deets:  F21 shearpa jacket (also love this one), Jacob sweater, Seduction denim, Aldo Klarr boots (similar mid-calf style here) & Aeropostale cross-body bag.

On Friday after work I ran some errands including hitting up Winners.  I snapped a selfie before going into the fitting room.

Clearly I have a distinct colour palette.  Who am I kidding?  If you've been following for a while, you know I'm a huge fan of neutrals which is why everything I tried on was black and grey.  That said, I didn't love anything enough to bring it home with me (and felt a little guilty too about spending money on myself when Christmas is just around the corner).
