Drew and I are both very active people. Drew loves to play basketball and I love to hit the pavement for a long run. We both have spent YEARS working out by ourselves, mainly because I workout when I can find the time.
In 2017 we decided to spend more time hitting the gym together. With both of us working and having Olivia, it is hard to find time for us to be together and just us! It is so important to find those pockets of time to spend together. Whether that be going to lunch together, having a cup of coffee in the morning before work or like us, hitting the gym during our lunch break. I am completely guilty of always being GO GO GO, while Drew takes the time to slow things down. I am pretty sure it is Drew’s mission to get me to relax more haha. I strongly encourage you guys to put down the “to do” list when you find those little pockets of time and spend time with your significant other doing something you both enjoy.
When we set this goal, I told Drew to go pick out some new workout gear from Nordstrom. I already knew they had the most extensive collection, but Drew quickly agreed after browsing himself.
Drew’s blue Nike pullover is super lightweight and breathable. It is great to wear as a base layer or alone. He is also wearing a pair of winter running pants that he has been wearing non stop since getting them. He raves about how comfortable they are as well as how well they keep him warm in these frigid temps. Ever since I have known Drew, he has loved his tennis shoes. He usually goes for the funky colored ones, but I talked him into these sleek black on black Nike Roshe pair. I loved them so much, I ordered the womens version! His gym bag I got for him as one of his Christmas presents and he loves that there is a separate compartment for your shoes.
Drew was also in need of a new rain jacket, so he picked out THIS Patagonia rain jacket. It is always a good idea to get a rain jacket in a neutral color as you never know when you may need to wear it. Nordstrom has a huge selection of Patagonia products for all types of active activities. Be sure to check it out here.
For my look I am wearing my new favorite Nike leggings. These babies suck you in, but are super comfortable. I have so many pairs of the NIke Juvenate sneaker, but they are hands down my favorite. They are comfortable, great to wear with jeans and super lightweight. My Kate Spade beanie is a new favorite and perfect to wear with my athliesure look during the day! (Side Note- no i don’t run with my hair down. I had just gotten off work and we were headed to the gym after taking these pics ;))
Be sure to check out the wide selection of Mens Activewear from Nordstrom here. If you need any help with sizing or picking out a certain piece, don’t hesitate to email me!
Also a lot of you guy asked about the taco salad I made last night on snapchat. Below are a couple of my favorite go to healthy recipes lately.
Pesto Zoodles with Shrimp– SO good if you love Pesto
Kale Chicken Caesar Salad- I get the kale salad from Paneara on the Regular so I found this recipe online. I LOVE Avocado in my Caesar Salad. If you have not tried it, do it!
Instant Pork Carnitas– so easy and filling
Have a great day guys! xoxo Tara
