5 Ways to Feel Good this Holiday Season

I'm just going to say it, the holiday season is upon us!  Let's not fuss and gripe about it being earlier and earlier each year. Instead, focus on the good and all the ways we can feel good this holiday season. Source: Alisa Anton, Unsplash.com You may have noticed that things have changed around here.  Less is more? I'm not sure when it comes to blogging but I do know that serious health issues have made it impossible for me to work and the guest posts have really racked up around here.  That's fine.  While I continue to heal and still figure out what exactly has me in full body pain and fatigue daily, I'm happy to let others share their voice. Share.  That's a great way to feel good.  Share your love. Share your blessings. Share your home and whatever you have.  I love to share my … [Read more...]

Fierce Summer Activewear

Summertime sweat sessions are some of my favorite times to workout. I love getting up before everyone else and getting a good workout in. The only problem is half the time I end up at the pool for the kids swim practice afterwards and I'm still in my summer activewear. I need some fierce summer activewear so to speak to keep my motivation high and to help me continue working out all summer long and look good while doing it. The Nike Free TR7 Cross Trainers offer both stability and flexibility both of which I need when I'm doing my routines. I love the summery blue hues with the yellow streaking through the sole and sides. Add in the lemon tank labeled 'fierce' that makes me feel lighting fast ( I can dream, right?) and I feel fresh and ready to tackle the most challenging work out my … [Read more...]

Fabletics March Picks: Brights

Fabletics made my activewear dreams come true this month. Fabletics March Pick of Brights was spot on for me.  I love green leggings.  I don't know why but I can't deny it.  I have a dark green pair but I wanted that bright bit of color for spring.  They did not do me wrong! Fabletics Albury: Salar Capri/Eunice Tank/Amna Sports Bra Perfect for running, yoga or any other type of workout the Salar Capri pants are flattering and wear well after repeated use.  I love that the weather will soon be warm enough to wear capri leggings again too.

But First, Gangster Rap & Some Activewear

But first, gangster rap.  Yup, that's me. When I'm feeling down. Gangster rap. When I'm feeling angry and like the world is full of injustice. Gangster rap. When I'm having a kick ass day and full of hustle?  Gangster rap, please. To be truthful, I'm just a hip hop fan all around.  Throw in some disco and funk and that's pretty much what makes my little musical world go round. So when I saw this shirt on Facebook I knew it had to be mine.  H gave it to me for Christmas and while I know I'll wear it under a blazer or hanging around the house or WHEREVER because I LOVE IT, it also makes a great activewear piece.  And really?  What's better to workout to?  Pop music? Not for this girl. I picked up these 3/4 leggings at Shopbop in December. I was feeling the red color hard.  They … [Read more...]

Why You Should Work Out When You Travel

Holiday travel.  Spring Break. Summer Vacation. Weekend Getaways.  All times that you should remember to continue to work out when you travel. It's so easy to just say that when you travel for work you don't have time to work out.  OK, sometimes that is the case.  It's even easier to blow off your fitness while on vacation. I mean, you are there for R&R, not burpees, right?  Except this. Here's why along with a few tips on what to pack and how I stay fit when I travel. While you can't see it, I'm wearing a black cowlneck sweatshirt, my black converse kicks and some killer Kyodan army green leggings I found at TJ Maxx for a total deal.  Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Fast Fitness in Ten Moves

Fast fitness has to be one of my favorite things. I'm the kind of person who likes efficiency and quickness. It's probably why I order my groceries online and pick them up later that day versus actually shopping in the store. When it comes to working out I like fast fitness too.  It's no wonder I like HIIT workouts so much. And quick runs, and Barre3 and I could go on and on. When it comes to traveling, generally being short on time or just wanting a fast way to workout so I can get on with my day, I turn to these ten moves. I keep a stack of cards just like this PIN-WORTHY image printed out and in my dresser.  I rotate through the workouts on the days when I have to get moving and out the door at warp speed.  Trust me, I'm a nicer person if I've burned off some of my intensity in the … [Read more...]

Shaping Up

I've been off the fitness rails the last few weeks for a wide array of reasons.  Now that we have settled back into a new fall routine I needed shaping up. A new look from Fabletics was definitely in order. So was testing out Honest Tea Sport for post-workout hydration and re-fueling. A photo posted by Victoria Mason (@veamason) on Sep 14, 2016 at 7:33am PDT The new dark green Salar Capri pants from Fabletics made my day and workout.  I didn't want to to take them off.  The are pure compression and make me feel and look well, fabulous. I love this simple black yoga tank from Fabletics.  The back adds some style while the fit is total comfort. New yoga mat (thanks Honest Tea!), new organic Honest Tea Sport (lemon) to hydrate and my Havianas make outdoor yoga sessions … [Read more...]

May the Course Be With You

Early morning, post-workout pics just for you! "May the course be with you." I hear that faint Obi-Wan voice in my head every time I run a race.  It was pretty perfect that one of my friends gave me that very tank by Raw Threads for my birthday.   I've been on a fairly serious fitness kick the last month or so.  I am straight up ADDICTED to 15- minute daily Betty Rocker workouts (thanks, Facebook!).  She's too energetic for me when I start the work out but by the end I'm smiling and so happy I checked in for the  day.  I've noticed major results too.  It's fifteen minutes. I have that, and only that … [Read more...]

I do it on a regular basis and I like to feel good in what I'm wearing.

These days I'm downright colorful. My new loves this summer are the following three pieces. They are fun, fit and wear well and are spot on for summer. … [Read more...]
