+ The four-day workweek is coming.

+ This printed shirtdress is perfect for the winter-spring transition.

+ A 15-minute cardio workout that requires no equipment.

+ <$20 Jewelry: A cool stone pendant, a classic Asscher-cut stud, and a chain link bracelet.

+ This is the only face mask that doesn’t tear or dry out my skin.

+ This online group taught me the joy of buying nothing.

+ ‘That’s It’ snack bars are made with fruit, and that’s it.

+ Five every day habits that help women build courage.

+ Nordstrom Rack is having a fab flash sale. This leather jacket caught my eye.

Long Read. Have financial confessionals normalized absurd spending habits? and also How much money is enough?

As I gear up to get back into working out, I decided to buy a few new pieces of workout gear to help motivate me.  Cute workout gear helps me feel my best when I’m panting like I just ran a marathon when I only walked a mile.

Old Navy always has cute, colorful workout gear.  I love this bright coral top and this long line mauve sports bra.  Old Navy also offers a plus-sizes line.

If you think a new piece of workout wear might motivate you to get back into it, stop by Old Navy.

    I love my local buy nothing group! I feel good about giving things away and not throwing them in the trash or wasting my time trying to sell things that likely wont be purchased. And the focus on local and neighborly is really nice. I have given away books and decorative items. And received toys and sporting equipment. I am in between homes right now, but hoping when we settle permanently I might be able to get some outdoor furniture or playroom furniture from the group!

    buy nothing groups are huge here in seattle. it’s a great way to ‘meet’ neighbors and great to upcycle items that aren’t necessarily accepted at your local charity – we’ve given up extra paint, an old toilet (!), extra bricks or soil from the garden, and more.

    I’m wearing that long-line sports bra right now and I love it! I find it runs a tad large, so consider sizing down if you’re between sizes.

    My son and I love That’s It bars. Costco has been carrying a bag of mini size bars which are a perfect mid-afternoon “treat”.

    I’ve purchased quite a few Old Navy workout pieces over the past year and I have to say their High-Waisted Elevate Built-In Sculpt 7/8-Length Compression Leggings are far and away my favorite! Perfect length, super comfortable, and I love the compression (which I initially thought I would hate). They’re expensive for an Old Navy item when not on sale, but since it’s Old Navy they’re on sale every other week it seems like. Highly recommend!

      I came here to say pretty much the exact same thing. The majority of my workout gear is Old Navy and these are by far my favorite leggings from them! Also a big fan of their boatneck long-sleeve performance tops. Great for layering for cold-weather exercise, but can pass for a “real” shirt on a zoom call if I’m already dressed for a run 🙂
