Good morning! Today’s post is going up a little late since I took the morning to GSD! I felt like we were so busy this weekend that I didn’t get to relax much or get much done, so I’m glad I could use Monday morning for that.
On Sunday, we celebrated Jordan’s 3rd birthday! I swear, I feel like she was just born and we skipped right past the baby stage and onto threenager in the blink of an eye! Her first birthday party was a garden party at our house, and we had her third birthday at a bouncy place with a Daniel Tiger theme.
One thing is for sure, this girl has some serious spunk! We love her sooo much!
GET FIT DONE WEEK 3
We started Week 3 of Get Fit Done on Monday. Over the weekend, I fell off my game a bit, so Monday it was ON! Over the last two weeks, I have noticed that when I do the workouts and eat according to the meal plan, I feel so much better. And then, this weekend when I didn’t workout, I felt not so great. It’s an important reminder to me to stick with it so I can feel good and have more energy!
It’s my own birthday Wednesday, and I want to be in the best shape of my life in my 4os and beyond! It’s not too late to join Get Fit Done! We’d love to have you do it with us!
Thank you Marianna for the beautiful birthday flowers!
AMAZON ATHLETIC WEAR
I’ve had several requests for an Amazon post featuring athletic wear and I’m happy to oblige! I definitely listen to your feedback and love to hear what you want to see next, so please keep your suggestions coming!
*For full transparency, I use affiliate links in these posts, which allows me to see what you’re interested in and helps me create future relevant posts. I also earn a small commission if you make a purchase through my link. But, if you use an app to check out (like the Amazon app or Nordstrom app), I can’t see what you liked and it also cancels the commission. If my posts are helpful to you, consider skipping the app and click through to the retailer using my links. I appreciate you so much! ♥
For Size Reference: I’m a shorty (5’1) and petite, athletic build (bigger legs), weighing about 110 and wear a 34D bra. I typically wear size 0p/25 jeans, XSP in tops and dresses. Lots of times the smallest size on Amazon is a Small, so in that case, that’s what I ordered.
Okay, now onto the fun stuff! AND, see a LIVE try-on saved to my Instagram Story Highlights!
Y’all know I’m quite passionate about my athletic wear. It has to be good quality and feel good on or I won’t wear it. All of these pieces passed the test and I’m excited to be able to recommend them to you!
Let’s start with leggings. I searched Amazon high and low and ordered so many pair of leggings, most of which went right back, but these are SO GOOD! They feel amazing on, high quality fabric, nice and thick, opaque and not see-through. And they’re only $18!
I love that they are breathable and moisture wicking and they literally rival some of my department store leggings for both quality and comfort. Definitely try these!
LEGGINGS FIT : TTS, I’m wearing size XS
This tank top is great for those that want a longer length to cover more of your bum. It can be worn as a workout top or as a regular tank with your casual outfits.
TOP FIT : I’m wearing size Small, prefer XS
I’m sooo happy to see my favorite Under Armour sports bras on Amazon! I usually had to go to Academy to get them, but I love that I can just add them to my Amazon cart! These are what I always wear for low impact workouts and all of my Get Fit Done workouts. They last forever (even with machine washing) and the cut is really nice. I always feel like I can breathe in them, while keeping the girls put. 😉
The crossback style has a nice, thicker shoulder strap that criss crosses in the back with a keyhole middle. It also comes with removable bra cups.
The sold blue one is a racerback style.
BRA FIT : I’m wear size Medium (I’m 34D) in both
The sports bra also comes in basic black.
This flowy tank was one of my faves from an early Amazon post and I’ve worn it a million times already! I bought the pack of 3 (black, white and grey – $24 for 3!) and these are an easy, lightweight tank to throw on over your sports bra when working out. You can wear it knotted like above, or undone like below.
TANK FIT: I’m wearing size X-Small
The long sleeve top is something I love to wear when it’s cold out, like for running outside. It’s super soft inside, like a snuggly pajama fabric, and does double duty for just lounging around or running errands.
LONG SLEEVE TOP FIT: I’m wearing size X-Small
I read so many amazing reviews for these yoga leggings that I had to try them for myself. Many reviewers said they are a dead ringer for the Lululemon Align pant ($85) but these are only $15! The thing that makes them so great is they’re super soft, seamless! and not see through. They are high waisted and very breathable and lightweight, perfect for yoga or any other exercise.
The nice size hidden pocket is located in the waistband to hold a key, credit card, or ID.
These leggings also have moisture wicking, sweat absorption and quick drying. Did I mention they’re only $15?! And they come in a million colors.
LEGGING FIT : TTS, I’m wearing size Small, could have went with XS.
The open back tank is cute for showing off a bit of skin and sports bra, while still being super comfortable. I like the shape of them and the higher neckline to balance the open back.
TOP FIT : I’m wearing size Small
This backless knit top is perfect for wearing to yoga or over your sports bra when it’s chilly. The back drapes beautifully and criss crosses at the hem. It’s only $16 and might even double as a date night top with jeans and heels!
TOP FIT: I’m wearing size X-Small
These shorts are AMAZING! They are exactly they kind of shorts that I love to run in. The fabric is fantastic and I love the fit and feel. They are fully lined with a back zip pocket. They come in three different colors/patterns.
SHORTS FIT: TTS, wearing size XS
This tank is designed for sweaty workouts with it’s tech mesh fabric that wicks sweat away and helps keep you cool. You’ll get a pack of two for only $18! They are great basic tank for any kind of workout.
TOP FIT : I’m wearing size X-Small
If you prefer a t-shirt over a tank for your workouts, this one by Under Armour is a great choice. It’s super soft, quick drying and feels great on (so light you barely feel like you’re wearing anything!). And, it’s got anti-order technology to help keep you from smelling like a sweaty mess!
TOP FIT : I’m wearing size X-Small
This jacket is designed to keep you warm without overheating. It’s a thick, quality fabric with a lot of stretch and slim fit. The artfully placed seaming gives it an hourglass shape. The jacket zips up fully in the front and at the pockets and there are thumb holes at the hands. I had a hard time deciding which color to chose, the pinks all look so pretty!
JACKET FIT : Slim fit, size up if you want it more relaxed. I’m wearing size X-Small
I hope this post was helpful for finding a few new workout pieces on Amazon! I know their site can be overwhelming to shop, especially for clothes, so hopefully this helps take some of the quesswork out of it for you! What do you want to see next from Amazon?
