This morning when the alarm went off, Ryan got out of bed and declared it “sleep in day” and we slept until 6:30 a.m. which felt glorious.
I am hoping to take a lunchtime group exercise class at the gym, so skipping our typical 5 a.m. workout and getting and extra 90 minutes of sleep sounded like a great idea.
Once we were up, we took Sadie on a 30-minute walk around the neighborhood.
It was cool enough this morning for me to wear workout capris instead of shorts, so I threw on some of the new gear I received from Casall a few weeks ago.
I was able to pick out a top and bottom I wanted to try from Casall’s website and was very happy with my selection. I love the drifit material of the top and the extra length is perfect for someone with a really long torso like me. I struggle to find workout tops that are long enough and was relieved that this top was extra long and didn’t ride up during workouts like many others seem to do.
The capris deserve an excessive amount of praise. I can’t stand when workout capris fall down when you run or are so thin that they show every lump and bump. Not so with these!
I love the waistband of the capris and the way it doesn’t dig into my sides. The material of the capris is thicker than other capris so they are not ideal for outside workouts in the Florida heat, but they have been perfect for gym workouts and a yoga class that I took in them a few weeks ago. The thickness of the capris makes them a lot more flattering as well and they’re backed by a three-year warranty. The downfall is the price of the apparel, which seems to be in the lululemon price range.
Casall agreed to host a giveaway on the blog very soon, so stay tuned! I have a feeling you guys will love their workout apparel and once we work out the logistics, I’ll be sure to fill you in.
My morning walk with Ryan and Sadie was a great way to start the day, especially since we were able to get outside before the heat of the day set in.
Sadie was pumped and the slightly chilly weather only heightened her enthusiasm.
Can you see the “stick” in her mouth? Sadie found a stellar piece of mulch that she carried around with her for the last half of our walk. She’s a peach.
Breakfast this morning was a cold and thick bowl of overnight oats topped with a sliced banana.
I’m not sure what it is, but this breakfast is sitting like a rock in my stomach this morning. Very filling!
