I cannot believe that TODAY is the first day of Fall! Is anyone else with me on this one!? Time is flying by! It seems like just last week was New Year’s Eve, and just yesterday was Summer vacation…and if we’re being honest, it definitely still feels like Summer here in Santa Barbara!
Anyway, I hope that with today being the official first day of the new season, the weather will cooperate with all the trends out there and cool down so I can layer up in some of my favorites for Fall. My IDEAL everyday uniform looks like this: comfy striped tee (for less than $20), anorak jacket, and a layered scarfpaired with a cute wool hat and booties to top it all off! My Fall wardrobe essentially consists of a variation of the above items, which is why I believe they’re must-haves…and you can’t beat the price!
For last week’s #workoutwednesday post here, I talked all about one of the way’s I stay motivated to workout day after day! Well today, I’m changing gears and talking about 2 of the most overlooked essentials to staying healthy! Without further a due:
Drink 100 ounces of water daily (NO soda): I usually try and drink about 2/3 of this daily water intake as regular, cold water in my re-usable water bottle. The other 1/3 of my daily water intake consists of La Croix. It is an all natural, 0 EVERYTHING water, that tastes delicious! My favorite flavors are here and here!
Eat every 2-4 hours (eat smaller portions, more frequently): I feel like I’m always hungry, and always snacking, but that’s actually a good thing! The more frequently (and more natural/whole foods) you eat, the quicker and better your metabolism will be! I’ll be posting some of my favorite health snacks soon so stay tuned 😉
That’s it folks! Although I am not a doctor or trained dietician for that matter, I have found that these two things can easily and quickly be over looked by most. I know both tips sound SO obvious, but trust me, sometimes you can forget to give your body the daily fuel it needs, especially when you’re busy! For myself and my body, I have found that drinking 100 ounces of water and eating smaller portions more frequently has benefited my health and helps keep me on my A-game!
I love anything chambray, and I love anything camel, so putting together and wearing this easy breezy fall outfit was a no brainer for me! With the belief that, when you feel your best, you look your best (and vice versa), I think it’s important to find your style through a balanced combination of what feels good and what looks good, and this dressand these sneakersdefinitely do the trick for me! What are your effortless go-to and “feel good” outfits?!
If you’ve read this post about why I workout and how I workout, then you’re somewhat familiar with my fitness routines, however, you may still be curious about what keeps me working out day after day, week after week, and month after month.
Something I can always count on is new workout gear! Who else is with me on this one?! This cute open back top paired with this strappy sports bra did the trick for me recently, and I couldn’t help but pair it with my favorite workout leggings and the most comfortable shoes I own. I fully believe in the saying when you look your best you also feel your best, so if you ever get down about staying motivated sometimes all you need to do is grab a new workout top like this one (on my wish list) to hit the ground running!
