It is snowing here in Chicagoland…again. I am so sick of the snow and am ready for nice weather!
Luckily, Albion sent me the Go Long Crew with Thumb Holes shirt in fuchsia to try out – long sleeves to keep warm! I love that this shirt is actually long. I have a long torso, so I have a hard time finding shirts that are long enough, but this one fits the bill
I also am a sucker for thumb holes. I mean, who doesn’t love thumb holes!
I like the crew neck on the shirt – it can be worn alone or layered with a tank underneath. I love the fact that although it’s a workout shirt, it could also double as a regular shirt. It would be great for going from the gym and then out to run a few errands and such. I can see myself wearing it over my gym tanks for going to and from the gym.
The Go Long Crew is a silky and lightweight spandex blend, perfect for working out in. I ordered mine is a size medium.
If the weather stays like this, it’ll be the perfect shirt to wear to the Egg Shuffle 5k coming up soon!
In addition to workout clothing, Albion also offers women’s fitness and swimwear. Their website has a bunch of great tennis outfits, hoodies, workout wear, bathing suits, pants, shorts, and shirts. They have it all!

Shopping for Furniture
Good afternoon! How are you all doing with the time change? It always takes me a while to get used to it, but I’m happy that it will stay light out longer.
Yesterday afternoon, my mom watched the kids for a while so Danny and I could go out and look for bedroom furniture. We’re trying to find a whole new bedroom set, and so far I haven’t found anything that I loved.
We looked at a lot of complete bedroom sets, but I don’t know if I like all the matchy matchy sets. I love this bedroom that I found on Pinterest:
So far, I can’t find exactly what I want so, the search continues! If anyone has any ideas, I would love to hear them.
While we were out, we stopped at Whole Foods for lunch and some more carrot cake Clif bars.
The plank-a-day challenge is going great. Danny and I are improving each day. Yesterday was day #10. Danny’s plank was 1 minute and 55 seconds.
My plank was 2 minutes and 50 seconds.
I used Marlene’s trick and listened to music while doing my plank. I think it really worked because I lasted 5 seconds longer than the day before!
- BodyPump – 60 minutes
- Plank Day #11 – 2 minutes 51 seconds
- 2.1 miles treadmill, walked/jogged
I did the plank after BodyPump today so it was really hard. I made it one second longer than yesterday and that was a struggle. My whole body was shaking after a minute, but the music really helps.
I had a small protein fruit smoothie this morning.
In my smoothie:
- 1/2 cup frozen peaches
- 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
- 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 scoop white chocolate Designer Whey protein powder
- 3 ounces Trop50 orange juice
