Movement is Free

fullsizerender-6

Cardio, strength training, HIIT, Pilates, yoga, spinning…there are endless ways to pack movement into your week, but ensuring time for rest is just as beneficial as a workout. From a physical perspective, workouts that improve lean muscle mass contribute best to overall health and do so by creating micro tears in the muscle tissue, which strengthens as it repairs itself. So, while it’s good to feel a little sore a day or two after a high intensity session, anything that ventures into pain or persistent soreness is a sign that it’s time to back off. Not only are rest days imperative to avoid injury, they allow the body to replenish itself and build that all-important lean muscle, in turn stoking your metabolism and creating strength and tone. Resting also allows for more energetic and explosive training sessions and helps you maintain motivation and consistency by avoiding burnout and fatigue.

When I saw these leggings at BCBG, I just had to have them.  Effortless to dress up or down, this formfitting legging is paneled in stretch ponte and finished with a flattering high-rise and flexible waistband.

One of my favorite things about fall is over the knee boots.  Like who doesn’t love a these? My problem is that I’m short and finding a pair that compliments my petite frame can be a challenge. So when I found these OTK black leather boots at ALDO, I almost did a cart-wheel in the store! Well, maybe not but that’s not the point . These are by far the most comfortable boots I’ve found so far, the heel is only about 2 inches and its wide so you don’t kill your feet walking everywhere.

My second favorite part of this outfit is my True Religion Casey skinny jeans.  I am so in love with these that I own them in every wash. They are the perfect fit and make my butt look I’ve been doing squats all day, everyday.  So if you don’t own a pair, go grab some and fall in love with Casey.

Ok can we please talk about this Chanel backpack? I’ve had this bag for about a year now and talk about trendy.  I love how the straps are half chain link and the size is perfect, especially for travel. I generally use this bag when I fly cause I can fit snack and all my essentials. This style is no longer available but you can find one similar in the link below.
