Fitness Mini Haul...Plus An Update!

Oh hello! "Is it me you're looking for?" 

HAI GUYZ!!! Long time no chat and no see. I've seemed to have vanished after November. My apologies, I've missed posting and you all quite a bit. I just wanted to post a quick update of my life and show you a mini fitness gear haul I got today. 

All right, so first thing's first, what's new?

1-I have picked up fitness again, but this time with a vengeance. I started lifting again near the end of November but only cleaned up my diet in January. No more sissy Steph. After research, self evaluation and self motivation, I've cast aside preconceived notions and stereotypes. No more "toning" for me, it's all about building strength and getting muscle. I'm still very far from where I want to be, but my mind is finally prepared and excited for the journey ahead. I'm looking to build the strongest version of me there is, mentally and physically.
Beau snuck a pic while I was working out.

2-As you can tell from the pictures above, I dyed my hair black. I got sick of the red fading and of the maintenance. Another reason for my drastic change? I wash my hair more frequently since I workout pretty much everyday, the money cost to keep the color in wasn't worth it. Maybe in the summer I'll go red again, maybe. 

3-I've come to the realization that people will come and go in your life. As sad as this realization this, it's part of our journey in life. I'll leave it at that.

4-I'm still pretty obsessed with cosmetics. I don't think I ever will not be, but for a while I avoided Blogger because I couldn't control my desire to want everything I saw. I'm better now, but again it's something I definitely need to work on. Instead of having Buyer's Remorse, I'd rather have the self control to know when not to splurge.

My latest obsessions. Butter everything...well skincare wise. Lip butter and body butter are a God send in the winter!

Now onto the haul! Me and Beau went to the Jersey Shore Outlets today to do an exchange at the Nike Store. I wasn't planning on buying anything but I saw a sales cart labeled "19.99" I took a gander just to see what they were selling, I mean it's not like Nike has grossly hideous shoes. When I saw the pink in the box I squealed a bit. There was only one pair of 6.5's left so I felt this purchase was meant to be. A girl can never have enough trainers!

The Under Armor store was right next to Nike so we took a peek in there. I bought a black pair of capris off the UA website at the end of December and fell in love with them. They feel like second skin. I have been lusting for a pair of the ever so popular Lulu Lemon yoga pants...but I honestly don't want to shell out so much money. These look similar to the Lulu pants and half the price, especially if you find them at the outlet. I'm so excited to add these to my closet!

Have you guys kept up with your resolutions for the New Year/Life? Let me know please! Hope to hear from you all soon and of course Happy Hump Day!
