Every time I drop $200 at Lululemon I promise myself that I will stick to the plan of how to take care of my gym clothes correctly. Lululemon has some of the best quality, not to mention most expensive workout out clothing around, so it is worth it to keep them smelling good as long as possible. NO dryers! Yes, it can be a pain, wet dripping clothes strewn all over the bathroom, but you will get more bang for your buck if you follow a few easy rules.

The key to keeping gym clothes fresh is to hand rinse them as soon as possible. If you let them sit wet in the hamper they will build up mold and mildew which equals- GROSS! I immediately either soak them in the sink with Woolite or throw them into the shower with me for at least a rinse with water. Always make sure you hang them to dry because that is where the real trouble can start. If you’re machine washing, always make sure to wash in cold water to save your colors and never ever dry them in a machine. Most of the materials dry quickly when hung out. The more active you are, the more wash you will probably have to do but it is better than having a stank smelling house!

My newest obsession at Lulu is ‘All Sport Bra’! Good for high intensity activity but still cute and the colors are summery and bright. I also love the ‘Ignite Bra’ for yoga and low intensity workouts. This bra is low cut and sure to catch the eye of the cutie next to you in Bikram.

Om Shanti baby!

Spring is in the air and with April in full force we look forward to Earth day and all things green! The color green represents abundance, growth, balance and prosperity. The color green is also said to create equilibrium between the head and the heart. When we think of green we think natural, alive and fresh!

Fitness Magazine recently reported on a study done with cyclists. The cyclists were shown two videos. One was of natural/green imagery and the other was the same video but shown thru a red or gray filter. All the cyclists said they felt the workout was easier when they were viewing the green video! . Experts say that viewing the color green can enhance your mood and emotions. Look around and see the green trend, it is everywhere! From the green juice movement to succulents to all the new green hues of nail polish to Lululemon’s new spring colors! Buy yourself a new green running bra or adorable head band and get happy! Send us your pictures of anything green you wear to pump you up!


If you live in the Midwest or Northeast you are no stranger to the biting cold that can descend on us. Like many of you I love to run outside, but when the temperature drops you need to be prepared. Ensuring that you will be safe and happy during your run takes a little planning.

First it is essential that you invest in the proper running attire. Layers are the only way to go. A hat and gloves are a must, or at the very least a shirt that has finger holes. By covering your head and hands you will keep the majority of your body heat from escaping. I also think it is wise, and I did it this year, to invest in an outer layer

jacket. A jacket that is insulated and waterproof. This will help with the wind and snow. Lululemon came out with a great one this season called the ‘Draft Dodger jacket’. It even has reflective stripes! There is another one called ‘The Bundle Up jacket’, that is even heavier(my next purchase!).

Hydration is extremely important to pay attention to before and after a winter run. Your body is working overtime to keep warm and low temps can dehydrate you. Try to over hydrate the night before a run and always immediately after. This brings me to another important rule for winter running. Always have a dry layer with you. You may be sweating and warm after a run but once you stop your body temperature will drop fast. You will be wet and that is never a good combination. Ever wonder why after a marathon people are given insulated sheets regardless of the temperature? Your body temperature will drop whether its 80 degrees of 20.

I know some people reading this are thinking that running outside in 25 degree weather is crazy! But if you’re a runner nothing can really keep you inside! If you’re a runner or an outdoor athlete, please share any tips with us that use to keep warm.

Run safe, stay warm!
