Soooo, I finally got my order from Amazon yesterday!
I’m crazy excited to start reading the Baby Bargains book, but even more pumped about my new workout DVD’s.
I’ll most likely do a review of all three of them once I’ve had a chance to try them all, but this morning I got my day started bright and early (5:30am) with a little Pilates. :)
As I was reviewing a bunch of various workout DVD’s online, this 10 Minute Solution Prenatal Pilates got a ton of great reviews. It’s also the same instructor that leads my long-time favorite pilates DVD so I was excited to give it a try.
*FYI: I’ve added a new “Pregnancy” category to my Amazon store, so any additional items I come across and love will be added to it, in case you’re interested!
So with the pilates DVD, there are (5) 10-minute workouts that can either be used all together or individually. This morning, I decided to try 3 out of the 5 workouts, for a 30-minute workout. I’ll get more into each individual workout another time, but I WILL tell you that I already LOVED these. They were great!
So while I was working out this morning, I was also sporting some brand new gear, courtesy of Reebok.
Recently, Reebok partnered with the Founder of Strala Yoga, Tara Stiles, to launch a new line of yoga gear for their Studio Collection. We actually learned a bit about it when I last visited HQ in November, so I was super excited when it arrived in the mail.
Note…this picture was taken the other night. NOT at 5:30am this morning. ;)
So let’s talk about the tops first, since I am in love with both of them.
I’ll be honest, there’s not many sports bras I get crazy over. Mostly, it’s because I (usually) have a small chest so they all just make me look all flat and blah up there. So no matter what, I always invest in sports bras that have cups added, and this one has just that.
They’re also removable, which will be really helpful when it comes time to wash it (nothing worse than the crumpled, folded pads inside bras and bathing suits, am I right?!)
This tee features PlayDry technology, and both the fit and fabric are just perfect. The fabric is a super soft, thin fabric which is ridiculously comfy and would work great for going from workout to running errands. Call me crazy, but I feel like this shirt could totally be incorporated into a cute outfit for going out at night (add a black or silver tank underneath, with maybe a black cardigan and a long necklace?).
I dunno…maybe I’ll give it a shot!
I’m also loving that the fabric is super stretchy and the fit is already relaxed…meaning I should still be able to get plenty of wear out of it as Baby Tooth grows. :)
The bottoms that I received are the Yoga Capri Tight (in black).
I’m really not too picky when it comes to workout bottoms, except for one thing…the waistband. There is nothing worse than a waistband that winds up digging into your sides and giving you extra, unnecessary muffin tops.
These bottoms, however, which are very similar to a few other pairs of Reebok capris that I own and love, have a wide waistband that doesn’t dig in and sits comfortably at the waist.
There’s also plenty of room for them to sit under the bump as it grows, so actually, this whole outfit is definitely one I can foresee using throughout my pregnancy. Gotta love that…no special maternity workout gear required! ;)
As always, you guys know I am totally honest with my reviews. If I do not like something, I’ll let you know. This latest package from Reebok, however, was totally right up my alley. I’m loving ALL of it and recommend any of the pieces to anyone!
Questions for the Afternoon:
- What’s the last new piece of workout clothing that you bought yourself?
- Do you have any “must haves” when looking to invest in workout clothes?
