Thank you to Finish Line and Shopstyle for sponsoring this post.
I’ll admit that last year I didn’t do the best job of taking care of my body. The (uh-mazing) New York City restaurant scene got the best of me and never in my life have I gone to so many week-day cocktail meetings. I got lazy with working out and wasn’t sticking to a healthy sleep routine because of my unpredictable work schedule…
You know how what they say – you need to be with someone who makes you better. Someone who is strong in areas you are weak. Which is why I just have to brag about this guy for a minute.
Conner has been an athlete his whole life and is one of the most disciplined people I’ve ever met. He does such a great job of taking care of his body and I’ve always admired his dedication to a healthy lifestyle. Con had an intervention with me (😂) at the start of this year about my not-so-great food decisions (chips, cereal, and candy addict) and started cooking me meals every night full of nutrients and protein. He also helped get me into a more regular workout routine. All because he “wants to live a long and healthy life together”…I mean come on, how do you say no to that?
So, since March, we’ve been really consistent with sticking to a morning workout routine and cooking our meals at home every night of the week. In the last few months I’ve noticed a huge difference both mentally and physically, plus it’s been a really good bonding experience for us to do together.
In the mornings we’ve been using the @onepeloton app that combines cardio work on the treadmill with weight training and stretching. I’ll be the first to admit I am NOT a runner, but the way they coach you through it and break up the intensity of your pace on this app has really helped me. And speaking of running… I have to give a shout-out to our adidas UltraBOOST running shoes. Not only do we both love the way they look (esp. the all white!), but they’re also so comfortable and offer excellent support. Conner loves his adidas athleisure from Finish Line, and how cute is this little workout set? I have it in lime green too! I’m really picky about workout clothes being too tight, but this set is comfortable and doesn’t bother my skin at all. Linking both of our outfits and shoes below for you to shop 🙂
