My latest greatest and tastiest…

A quick post featuring a few of my current favourite things:

Kewaza Protein balls:
Holy incredibleness is all I can say! Super clean ingredients, amazing (!) intense cocoa and rich peanut butter flavor. Low in calories and natural sugar. These balls are the bomb! Since finding them a few weeks a go, I swear I’ve become a PR agent – telling everyone I know, sharing a pack with those deserving (ha ha). So much, my local Noah’s ran out, but they’ve since re-stocked. Thank you very much!kewaza

Karma Leg Warmers:

My Flashdance look combines comfort with coziness. Yoga with dance. I’m loving these leg warmers made by Karma. More than that, when they arrived by courier, inside was a lucky dollar coin with a note to pay it forward and share good karma, or hold on to it as a gift. “A small token can empower a big change.” So cool! Leg warmers

Hard Candy Fitness:
Probably the best spin studio in the city. Bikes are smooth. Huge amount of space between riders. Plasma screens, killer sound system – including live DJ – on Friday nights. Harder is better, and this gym delivers! Highly recommend a test-ride. #NosweatNocandy Hard Canday

Hot Vanilla-Protein-Milk
My healthy twist on hot chocolate during cold wintery months: Unsweetened almond milk, a scoop of Genuine Health’s proteins+ vanilla with a dash of cinnamon. Blend into a smoothie. Pop into a mug and microwave for about 1.5 minutes. Add a pinch of maple syrup, drink and enjoy. Vanilla hot choc

YYoga Queen West
Stunning new space on Queen St. West. Gorgeous yoga studios, spin room, change rooms and boutique. I could go on and on about this place! Tons of classes and the nicest staff. I took a 30-day pass recently and got my serious sweat-on, thanks to Jock Yoga classes, M-F, 6:45 AM. YYoga


CW-X Conditioning Wear

I just love workout wear. Particularly running gear with cool design and innovative functionality.

At the Runner’s Expo before last weekend’s Scotia Waterfront Half-Marathon, I discovered CW-X Conditioning Wear. Totally impressed with compression gear overall, I had hoped to find a pair of running tights – and low and behold…

Choosing the Women’s ‘Pro’ tights, I was immediately impressed with their cool design and graphics, supreme fit (tighter than non-compression) with obvious support felt thru my hips and knees.
According to the CW-X website: The patented Support Web™ brings the hips, knees and ankles into proper alignment, reducing impact and load to the legs. The Support Web also creates a suspension system for the hamstrings and quadriceps, reducing workload in both the pull and push phase of the running motion.

So did the Pro’s make a difference on race day?

I finished the half in 1:30:30, 8th in my category (of 652) and 53rd woman overall (of 5377). A PB, quite pleased indeed.

With the amount of compression wear I saw on race day (!), there’s no denying functional gear is where it’s at – and I definitely plan to buy more.

The Pro’s retail for $124.99 and can be ordered online, here.

Joe Fresh Racer Back Tank

Those who see me at the gym regularly know that I’m not a fancy dresser.  Far from it!

Over the years, my workout attire has shifted away from expensive yoga stuff (lululemon), to a more uniform look that suits me just fine (I think): White and billowy on-topMid-length, somewhat baggy on the bottom.

Long a go I purchased a top made by Adidas that I wore (and wore!) for years.  Unable to find another like it, I was ready to give-up my search….until, low and behold a trip to Joe Fresh!

Enter the Racer Back Bubble Hem Tank, for just $19.  A total score of a top for those with a long torso and who can’t stand tight, stomach-sucking tanks! Not to mention its ridiculously low price tag.

I snatched two immediately, debating going back for more as I know far too well how fast Joe’s inventory disappears.

In the meantime, I’m going to keep wearing my workout uniform – sweaty and proud!
