Pink Lotus Athletic + Three Thoughts


I'm usually up at 5 am to get my workout, shower, and coffee time in before the kids are awake.  Lately with fun summer schedules, staying up late and a few extra cocktails here and there, I've enjoyed sleeping in.  Getting a new pair of sneakers or a new workout piece can be motivating!
 Pink Lotus is the answer!
Whether you are interested in working out or really just looking for some comfortable loungewear, there are many options.  The color of these pants that I'm wearing is gorgeous.  So bright!  And the front wrap detail is adorable.  Look how cute the back is to this Ladder Back Sports Bra!  This Be Free Tank immediately caught my eye.

Love the back detail on this bralette!

Three Thoughts:
1 - I have decided that I need to try a shirt dress.  Can you believe that I've never worn one?  I'm going to try something new!  I've seen so many adorable shirt dresses lately.  I LOVE this anchor print dress and the simplicity of this Belted shirt dress.

2 - I follow quite a few blogs!  Lately, I keep coming across a common theme talked about in many of them -  Gratitude.  How often we get caught up in the little things in our life: one of the kids drops a cracker on a cleanly swept floor (WHY???), the laundry that is piling up, the feeling of always wanting more,etc.  It can be exhausting and really take the fun out of life.  I know I'm guilty of this.  I'm always reminding the kids to have a grateful heart and appreciate what they have but sometimes I forget.  My biggest area is the feeling of always having to clean the house.  It's ok that occasionally the game they were playing didn't make it back to the closet, or the shopkins figurines are still spread out on the coffee table.  Yesterday the kids and I left the house in it's "un-kept" state and ventured to a new pool for some fun.  It was a blast and exactly how summer should be.  The only thing that would've made it better was if the Mr. was with us.

3 - I know we're a little late to the Ninja blender party but we finally got one.  This Nutri Ninja Duo is amazing!  Last night it was Milkshake Mania at our house!  I can't wait to try this Tropical Green Smoothie!  Do you own a Ninja?  What's your best healthy smoothie?

  6. Hats off to you... I cannot for the life of me get myself up that early. I barely sleep and don't think I could make it through the day! Lol but I know, if you want something bad enough you'll do it... maybe one day I'll get there!

  7. Never heard of pink lotus, but I am checking them out now!! I don't have kids, but I get up around 5:30 to do blog stuff, work out, and get ready before work, so I understand.
    1) I cannot believe this!! They are my go to!
    2) Yes- I try to thank god in little prayers throughout the day. one of my most common is walking in my apartment after work- I am always thankful for being able to afford it, but lately it has been that I'm thankful for air conditioning!
    3) Ninjas are great! My bf has one.

  11. This is such a cute workout outfit! I don't really spend too much on workout clothes because I feel it takes away from regular clothes and I'm just going to get dirty anyway - LOL. I did recently buy a cute new pair of capris though that I am excited about. You look amazing and I cannot believe you have not tried a shirt dress! My fave!

  17. Such fun and cute exercise wear! I only recently bought a pair of leggings - nothing fancy, just a grey pair and a black pair, for exercising in now I'm doing PT sessions weekly. Don't have a sports bra yet though, that's the next thing I need! :)

    Thank you for joining the Wednesday Pants Link Up I co-hosted!

  22. I needed this motivation!! I've fallen into a "I've got so much going on/exhausted/one too many ice cream cones rut." I am guilty myself of having small meltdowns over the littlest of things, but I'm working on it!
