Favorite Workout Apparel/Accessories + Last Week’s Workouts


I hate that I haven’t had time to put together a Friday Favorites post in a while so I decided to share my current favorite workout apparel and accessories of the moment today!

Favorite Workout Apparel

Sculpt Tank Top – This is by far my favorite top for running. Obviously, you can’t wear it for outdoor running when it’s cold but it’s great for the gym (and then again in the summer).

Emulate Bra – Best sports bra for running and high-impact activities.

Energy Long Line Bra – I love this bra for spin, barre, and pilates.

GapFit Breathe Twist Back Tank Top – I love these tank tops from the Gap for spin, barre, and pilates. They look really cute over a colorful sports bra, fit well, aren’t expensive, and keep me from feeling sweaty.

Base Pace High Rise Tights – My favorite pants for running.

Another Mile Vest – I LOVE the new purple colorway of this Another Mile Vest. While I won’t be running outdoors as much this winter since I now belong to Equinox, this vest is worth the investment. You will have it for years.

Alosoft Hooded Runner Long Sleeve – I always say I love this top more than the lululemon Run Swiftly — it has a hood that makes all the difference.

Power Stride Socks (3 pack) — I love these socks so much – they are the only socks I wear for running now.

Alo Yoga Glow Sweatbands – I don’t know how anyone runs or does any activity where they sweat without these sweatbands.

Back To Life Sports Bottle – This water bottle has become my best friend.

The sherpa belt bag from lululemon keeps selling out but then is quickly restocked — so cute for winter!

For a gym bag, I actually got lucky and found that I had one in my closet to use from Henri Bendel. However, I think this packable tote from Alo Yoga would be perfect, or this Side-Cinch Shopper Bag from lululemon. Obviously, I use a Stoney Clover small pouch in my gym bag to hold things like my lock, deodorant, AirPods, hair ties, and everything else.

Last Week’s Workouts

Monday – 3 Mile Run + Spin

I had time this morning for a spin class (which had a pitbull theme to the ride- so fun).

Tuesday – Melissa Wood Health Combo

It was raining again and a truck overturned on the expressway which closed the road right where I exit for Equinox. I realized it wasn’t worth the traffic nightmare to rush myself to the usual 7:00 AM class that I like so I stayed home.

  • 28 Min Spicy Pilates Sculpt (1 lb weights)
  • 10 Min Arms (body weight)

Wednesday – 5 Miles

Yet another morning of rain (five days in a row now!) but it was light enough for me to want to run outside. I needed air by this point!

Thursday – Barre (2 lb weights + ball)

Friday – Pilates (2 lb weights + ring)

I love this pilates class so much.


Saturday – 3 Mile Run + Barre (2 lb weights + yoga block)

The instructor I really like was subbing for today’s one-hour barre class so I changed up my usual spin choice and took barre today. It was so great, I am just so happy to be back to doing barre.

Sunday – Pilates (ring)

I slept a bit later so I missed the start of the usual Precision Walk treadmill class that I take before pilates. I did, however, get to Equinox with enough time to walk on the treadmill on my own prior to the start of pilates. The instructor from Friday’s class was subbing for today — love her.
