The Three Best Joggers for Women

Maybe it’s the former athlete in me, but I cannot resist a pair of good joggers.  It can be hard to find the right pair of joggers to fit and flatter you. Some can be too baggy, too long, too tight or even too short. In this post, I want to share the best joggers for women I’ve found. I’ll never forget how I stumbled upon both of these joggers. They were not filed under the jogger section, actually. However, I remember seeing the fit on the model and thinking, “These are it!” There are two pairs I’m featuring in this post. One is high waisted and has a more subtle look. The other sits lower on the waist and features the iconic Nike swoosh. I recommend both but if you’re only going to get one, I hope this helps you decide between the two.

Figure Skating with Outdoor Voices

Right boot on, then left boot on. Lace up the right skate, then lace up the left. On a crisp fall morning, come with me to Chilled Ponds, a local ice rink where I’m rediscovering my love for figure skating as a 27-year-old grandma (in figure skating terms, ha!)

I spent 11 years of my life figure skating. I pursued it competitively for most of those 11 years and as all good things, it came to an end. Injuries and just not being good enough to continue pursuing it pushed me to work hard toward my other dreams. I’m nowhere near as good as I used to be but figure skating in Outdoor Voices has inspired me to try some of my old tricks – even if it’s awkward, slow or ends in my butt on the ice.

Why I use BBG to Stay Healthy & Strong

Hello, My Beautiful Friends! What I do to workout or what my fitness routine is has been such a requested post for years! Before I get into what I currently do, I want to point out something. I truly believe I’ve been fortunate to have parents who supported and encouraged a healthy and active lifestyle. I started figure skating when I was 8-years-old and shortly after, to keep up with the demands figure skating put on my body, I was introduced to a warm-up, workout and post-skating regimen. Figure skating competitively was my life for more than 11 years. This contributes to a great metabolism and foundation for having lean muscle. My Dad is quite lean himself and had well-defined muscles in his legs before he got sick. My Mom encouraged us to eat plenty of greens and vegetables so I grew up loving healthy food.
