This is a bit late, forgive me its been quite the month! It just flew by! This month was really good, but also full of assignments, midterms, etc. Without further ado here are things I liked and did in the month of November.
Personal training. Is this a cheesy and weird thing to say I like? I have really found a groove in my workouts with my wonderful trainer (who my bestie refers to as the real life wonder woman). I have finally started to notice small changes in my body. My goal isn’t to lose weight, my goal is to be able to push ups and be trained for specific testing as well as improve my own workouts. My push ups are getting there, I overcame my fear of box jumps, and my running has improved greatly as have my workouts at the gym myself.
Nudestix concealer. This is such an underrated product. It’s so easy to slap on and go, doesn’t get too creasy and makes you look alive. It also conveniently comes with a container and a sharpener.
The lululemon align pant. OMG. BUTTER. BUTT wait for it ER. I fell into the hype folks. I fell hard. I got two pairs of the align crop, they are absolutely wonderful. Stretchy, high waisted, and sweat proof (sort of). The greenish pair I have i wouldn’t wear for leg day, but then again why do we care so much about our sweat? That’s another story for another day.
My new balance cross trainers. I bought these in September for personal training. When I was wearing nikes (far too thin for my wide feet) my feet would always be very sore after just a 30 min circuit. When I put these new balance trainers on my feet they were the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn. Honestly I think because of my lack of findings of good shoes I was avoiding strength training because my feet just couldn’t function. Now, I actually don’t fear having super sore arches or bunions and it’s a blessing.
My fasted 1K. OMG ALL I DID IT. I reached my lactic threshold. I didn’t believe it. I was spent after that. I’m finally seeing improvement and with anyone who is also a runner, you know improving is always difficult.
Lip balms. I don’t know folks, there was a time where I was extremely into matte lipsticks and matte liquid lipsticks but as I’ve grown this year into a busier person I just can’t do the colourpop matte liquid lips, or the Anastasia ones. I do still dabble in my NYX soft matte lip cream and my Too Faced Melted Mattes. But lately I’ve been loving (as I have said before) the Burt’s Bees lipsticks, the Burt’s Bees lip shimmers and this eos shimmer lip balm.
What have you been liking and doing this last month!?
