fitness tips + an albion fit giveaway …

November 10, 2014

I’m very excited to partner with Albion Fit again for a fun giveaway!
I’ve been loving and wearing their fitness clothing and swimsuits for a while now, and I feel like they just keep getting better and better!
I’ve always been a huge fan of their cropped leggings made out of high quality compression fabric, they suck you in right where they need to, and you can tell just by the feel of the clothing that it is high quality fabric.  I’m wearing their go capri in turquoise.
I also loved this go long crew grey and white striped super soft top with thumb holes.
I have always enjoyed having an exercise routine.  It all started back in high school when I got my first gym membership, I enjoyed working out at least 3-5 times per week.  I continued to stay active, better at times than others doing a lot of yoga, and running.  Fast forward to three kids, and lots and lots to do I still try to stay active.  I haven’t been a member of a gym in years, but here are a few things I like to do to stay in shape at home. 
  • Sign up for a race.  I ran my first half marathon last year, and boy was it a motivator to get out there and train.  I don’t think I’m the type of person to be signing up for races all the time, but I think maybe once a year or every other year will keep me motivated.  Training for a race can be a big commitment for time, and I also started having some knee issues, but it really helped me achieve some running goals, and I loved training and accomplishing a big fitness task.
  • You Tube-  There are so many free workout videos on You Tube!  I love the Jillian Michaels videos, Be fit Yoga, Fitness Blender Tabata, and my favorite is the ten minute arm workout by Tracy Anderson.  So many good choices, for free!  If you have ten minutes to an hour, you can fit one of them in!
  • Playground workouts.  I usually always have to workout with my kids around, so I discovered that I could workout at the park while my kids were playing.  I walk or run to a nearby park, and while the kids are playing I’ll do squats, push ups, crunches, bring my fitness bands and wrap them around the park equipment for stability and you could even do pull ups on the monkey bars. (I’m too big of a wimp for that.)  You may look a little funny, but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do.
  • Run, hike, bike, or walk!  I know I mention running above, but there is nothing like being outside!  When the weather is nice, and you can get your exercise while enjoying nature, there isn’t much better than that!  I think that I’ve made some of my biggest decisions in my life lately on a run.  I get a chance to clear my head and really focus and think!  It sounds funny, but we are always distracted with devices in front of our faces, and an open road or trail in front of you can do wanders.  Hey, cheaper than therapy right?
I know I feel better when I stay active and eat healthy.  I have had one too many sweets this fall, and boy and I feeling it, better get back on it. Wink.  We all have our struggles with finding the time, but when we do, I think we know it’s worth all the hard work and effort.
So, let’s do this giveaway!

    I love the Fit and Zip Hoodie. It has such a cute style to it, but it has the moisture wicking that I like in workout gear. But so much style, with the seaming and being fitted is what appeals to me.

    My fave is the unwind pullover and the pumpkin go long leggings! I'm a dance teacher, so these would be a great addition to my work wear!

  3. Katie Anderson

    These swimsuits are ridiculously cute!! I'd love to get a head start on spring break swim suit shopping – however, if I had to pick something for now, it would be the go long crew top with thumb holes in pool.

    I love their Go Long Crew with thumb-holes in Nectarine. Thank you for hosting this giveaway.

    I am swooning over the Antigua capris. Or their baseball tees. Or the go long pumpkin. Or the swimsuits. I do have their signature hoodie in turquiose and it is so dreamy!

  6. Tracy Cotton Pickin Cute

    They have so many cute things but I'd really like to get the ALTA TUNIC HOODIE, HEATHER GREY. Thanks for the chance to win.
