What I’ve Been Up To A few weeks ago (six, actually) I started the Bikini Body Guide (BBG) workout. The BBG workout is a twelve-week fitness program designed to get you, well, bikini ready. If not bikini-ready, how about going for simply being in better shape? Yes, please. Kayla Itsines (it-seen’-ez) is the hugely popular… Read More A Fitness Update
Fitness is such an individual thing. Yes, fitness classes and fitness groups are very popular, but what you like and what works for you is pretty specific. For some, it’s all about running. Others just want to pump weights. Body-weight exercises (we used to call them calisthentics) also have a huge following and come in… Read More My Latest Fitness Craze
Not many of us can say we have more free time than we did a year ago. For all the new time-saving gadgets and techniques out there, we seem to be busier than ever. Finding ways to balance all the demands on our time is a real challenge. Priorities are shifted. Things get sacrificed. Our… Read More The “I Don’t Have Time to Workout” Workout, Part One
Regarding my journey to bikini readiness: I haven’t checked in for a while. The reason? I’m not getting there. At all. I’ve had a hard time staying motivated. I’m sure I’m not the only one who struggles with a busy schedule, a lack of willpower and sometimes, just plain laziness. Sometimes I’m tired and I… Read More How to Re-focus and Stay Motivated!
A kinder, gentler moto is this pretty offering from Dillard’s. If you find yourself in the position of wanting to try a moto jacket but not desiring that edgy look, this piece may be the answer. It has all the elements of the classic moto: black leather, heavy zippers, metal studs. Funny though, that it’s… Read More Floral Moto Jacket
I had planned to post this last Wednesday, but somehow messed up the scheduling. I was already behind – I want to post at least three times a week, but that doesn’t always happen. I want to be consistent but I’m learning not to beat myself up too badly when I’m not. Life gets busy… Read More My Bikini Challenge – The Current Workouts
When it comes to workouts, good-looking, well-fitting workout wear makes all the difference! As I’m working to lose body fat and tone muscle for my personal bikini challenge, I want to feel great through the process. And let’s be honest, I don’t always want to look like a gym rat! I’ve rounded up some really… Read More Great Workout Wear for a Great Workout
I have to admit, when I first saw this Pure Jill Fit cowl-neck dress, “workout” was not the word that came to mind. Although the stylists at J.Jill show this with leggings and sneakers, my mind went to leather and heels. Go figure. I’d say that’s versatility at its best. Although I can’t see working… Read More Cowl-Neck Dress
I hinted at it on Instagram, and now I’m so excited to partner with J.Jill to introduce their new active wear line, Pure Jill Fit! In truth, it makes so much sense. J.Jill is known for comfort, as I’ve noted repeatedly on Haute Business. Since comfort and workout wear should be essentially synonomous, the advent… Read More Introducing J.Jill’s New Activewear, Pure Jill Fit!!
I love Zella workout wear. The fit is great, the comfort is fantastic, and the price is reasonable. When Zella pieces go on sale, such as during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, the sale price makes them almost irresistible. It seems I’m always picking up a pair of leggings whenever Nordstrom has styles on sale. Right… Read More Zella Workout Wear
