It never gets easier. You just get better.

I don’t think my desire of fitness and exercise is particularly a big secret.

ua-iwillTo me, staying fit is an essential part of my lifestyle. This is why I’m involved with the UnderArmour #IWill/#WhatsBeautiful campaign, see my direct Under Armour profile page. I don’t think I can be complete without exercising a few times a week.

This week I received an Under Armour surprise thanks to the #WhatsBeautiful campaign and sponsorship with me being a FitFluential Ambassador. Here I am sporting the tank and the pink sneaks that was sent to me for free. Totally my style, love what they picked!


Let’s do this ladies. Go after your goals!ua-goafteryourgoals

… and never give up!ua-never-give-up

Take a rest day when needed, and lace up and give’r on the other days. ua-lace-up

As much as I love working out and working on my weaknesses — I course love my rest days like anyone else. Something about a bit of rest makes me feel stronger, faster, and better the next time I do a CrossFit wod, a run, or go for a climb. 

I’m pretty proud to announce that on Wednesday I achieved a 100lb Power Clean at CrossFit and did it three times in a row.100lb powerclean

We were given a 15 minute time limit to do 5 sets of 3. Well, I ended up doing it 7 times because I kept going up in weight, and surprised myself. So now? I have no idea what my PR is, since we ran out of time. I feel like a powerhouse, who never gave

Thank you Under Armour, and FitFluential, for allowing me to be part of this motivating worldwide team. uathank-youMy favorite way to work out, as you already probably know is going to CrossFit and bouldering at the local climbing gym. A proper balanced diet, mixed with some candy and McDonalds here and there is how I’m keeping things real. How I keep myself fit, healthy and happy.

Sharing the love with a few of my favorite Under Armour What’s Beautiful Women:

As for my workout goals? I had planned on putting down getting double unders — but I achieved that when I did my paleo challenge in April/May. I’m now up to getting 27 in a row without failing. C’mon 30! But my goal now, is to be the healthiest me I can. To have fun, and enjoy food, friends and fitness. Indulging once in a while never hurt anyone.

I also want to get better at doing pushups with my elbows IN, and off my toes. I’m pretty speedy at doing pushups like this when I have to do a ton of burpees, but doing a few pushups in a row? Hard, even after my 50 day push up

It never gets easier. You just get better.

How about you guys? Do you work out on a regular basis? Do you CrossFit, or climb or all of the above?

Do you ever make goals for yourself? They can be mental, emotional or physical.

Under Armour Gotta Have It Bra

Yep you got that right folks. I’m back with another sports bra review from Under Armour. This time I won’t be showing you all, not-so-revealing photos of myself sportin’ the sports bra.

Here she be, freshly washed.

Under Armour — Women’s Gotta Have It Sports Bra. ($29.99 CDN)

I didn’t take photos of it when it was brand new with the tags on it, because I completely forgot. They are long gone now, but if you want more information about it, it’s all available online.

Women’s Gotta Have It Sports Bra by Under Armour

This bra isn’t as high impact as some of the other bras that I currently own. But I knew that from the very beginning. As mentioned in my previous review, I wore this bra to CrossFit many times as well and get this — without a hitch! I’m loving this hot pink bra much more than other one I was sent from Under Armour.  I had issues with that one riding up on the base of my neck. Where as this one wasn’t as high cut. I gladly pointed out the flaws and issues I had with the other bra, even if the review wasn’t the most positive. I hope that I could help out in some way if they ever do a re-design of it. Right?

Anyway back to my lovely pink bra.It has the perfect height, to go along with the perfect colored bra.

Here is the inside of the bra. No extra padding and since I’m small chested I don’t need an extreme amount of support, so this type of sports bra works fine for me.

As for any color bleeding off of the super hot pink fabric itself? I don’t own any light colored tank tops with the exception of this Lululemon one, but didn’t notice any of the dye bleeding at all. Which of course, is great.

Have you tried anything from Under Armour before? What are your thoughts, if you have?
