{late} WIAW + New Workout Gear!

hi guys! happy WIAW!

today i have some recent eats (despite being a liiittle late to the party) & some other new (random) exciting things to share with you. first, the food!

coconut flour pancakes with vanilla almond butter

eggs with spinach, goat cheese, and sriracha

greek yogurt with frozen berries, vanilla almond butter, and unsweetened coconut

eggs with goat cheese, bacon, brussels sprouts

new-to-me Larabar that was pretty good! 

coconut flour pancakes with vanilla almond butter and defrosted frozen berries

egg scramble with quinoa, spinach, bacon, & goat cheese with iced coffee

first bowl of oatmeal in months! plain oats cooked in almond milk with chia seeds, topped with vanilla almond butter, unsweetened coconut, and brown sugar. 

basically i've been eating a ton of eggs, bacon, coconut, and vanilla almond butter, haha! there's also been a lot of chipotle (for some reason i've been really lazy about packing dinner for work) & froyo happening around here. i need more green in my life, stat!

and now onto the new stuff happening around here! i ripped two pairs of my nike frees doing rope climbs at crossfit (they are currently taped with duct tape), so i decided to splurge and get myself a pair of Reebok Nano 3.0. they just recently came out and were only $10 more than the 2.0 so i decided to just go for it. 

BEST DECISION EVER. all caps were completely necessary, these shoes are the best! i have done two WODs in them with a variety of different movements including running a mile and all around they were fantastic. i don't have much to compare them to since they're my first pair of shoes designed specifically for this activity but they're freakin' awesome. 

{side note: weekly workout recap is coming at the end of this week!}

i also got myself some new workout gear since i just got my first paycheck of the summer & am in desperate need of some more workout tanks!

i bought the lululemon power y tank (it is supposed to be for yoga but i fell in love with it at the store & it did great in crossfit), champion c9 seamless cami bra for extra support, and lululemon wunder under crop.  i'm really happy with everything that i got! to me, some things are worth splurging on, and i always end up buying nice workout clothes instead of nice normal clothes (sorrynotsorry). 

other things i've done recently:

started my internship at the physical therapy office! i'm loving it so far.

annoyed the crap out of ginnie. this picture makes me laugh so hard every time i see it. she is such a primadonna and doesn't like being held! 

went to an A's game with my parents & one of my best friends! 

went to the farmer's market with my mom last weekend.

other than that, i've been wasting my life away watching how i met your mother. i just started watching a few days ago and am already on season two! halllp. but not really because i need to make it through like eight more seasons before the summer's over. 

have you gotten and new workout clothes lately?
HIMYM... love it, hate it, or haven't seen it?


  1. I got some new tops recently and a new pair of trainers. The only things I needed were trainers and a couple pair of new shorts. And I still haven't got any new shorts.

    But I definitely agree with you on the fact I now prefer to buy workout clothes than normal clothes. Never thought I'd say that!

    Happy WIAW :D

  2. Have I gotten any new workout clothes lately?!? If you asked me that on ANY given day the answer will most likely be YES! Most recently I added another pair of Speed Shorts to my Lululemon collection :) Because it's hot and I've been running a lot I was constantly wearing my only pair and they were always dirty, so I saw a cute pattern and snagged another pair up! I already LOVE the wunder under crops but I've been on the fence about the power-Y top for awhile. Worth it?!?

    1. I love the lulu speed shorts! & the power y tank is definitely worth it, but you might have to buy an extra sports bra for support if you wear it to anything other than yoga.

  3. Those all look like wonderful splurges if you ask me :)! Especially since they're not just gonna sit in your closet and that you'll actually use them ;)!

  4. I LOVE those new ALT bars! I thought the lemon bar was good too! Your internship sounds really fun! Glad you're enjoying it.

    1. the ALT bars are really good! I had a peanut butter one the other day and loved it as well. i used to never eat larabars because they didn't keep me full for very long but i am loving the extra protein in the ALT bars.

  5. So many great eats and treats! Would you believe me if I told you that I have never had coconut flour 'cakes? I'm glad someone is enjoying them for me! In the meantime, I'll enjoy the oats for you. I see that you're just getting back into the swing of eating them :) Have a lovely weekend, girlfriend!

  6. I have one of those ALT bars in my pantry! I can't wait to try it! What pancake recipe do you use??? They look fantastic!
    It looks like you're having an awesome summer! That internship sound amazing. And lululemon has some seriously awesome stuff. Their clothes magazines are on of my favorites to look at haha!

    1. i will post my go-to coconut flour pancake recipe soon! & lululemon is seriously the best.. too bad my wallet doesn't agree, haha!
