Optimum Nutrition has created a delicious and nutritious way for you to enjoy breakfast on the go through their Whey & Oats and Greek Yogurt Protein Smoothie lines. They come in many different flavors including Blueberry Muffin, Chocolate Glazed Donut and Vanilla Almond.
Optimum Nutrition Whey & Oats Blueberry Muffin
I had this one with vanilla almond milk. It was the perfect amount of sweetness. It tasted very similar to a blueberry muffin. This makes a great on the go breakfast or snack! This shake has as much fiber as a bowl of oatmeal. This packs 27 g of protein per shake! You can get yours here.

Optimum Nutrition Greek Yogurt Protein Smoothie Strawberry
I had this one with one serving of almond milk, ½ cup of mixed berries, ¼ cup of ice and half a banana. The smoothie I made was awesome using those ingredients. It was very filling. I will also try this alone with almond milk and possibly bake muffins using this powder. The new protein powder features oats, 20g of protein, 0g of added sugars, Greek yogurt and chia seeds. This treat is also gluten-free. You can purchase it here.

My Gym Clothes: Secrets & Steals!

Hey guys! I have been endlessly frustrated paying far too much for cute and high quality workout clothes. I’ve done a lot of research and had some hits and misses from clothing companies. I am going to share with you some of the best deals out there for adorable workout leggings and tops from some of my favorite companies, such as, Athlenix Apparel, DTina’s Boutique, Aerie, T.J. Maxx and Plato’s Closet.

Athlenix Apparel workout leggings are so stylish, good quality and so cheap! Everything on their site has free USA shipping. I wish I had found them sooner. This is by no means a sponsored post. I found these camo leggings and a 15% off code (Faith15) and I had to purchase them. I selected the blue camo leggings in a size medium for $11 (discount applied) and I recently purchased the grey camo leggings and got the same deal! Leggings on their site range from $34- $11 with the discount and free shipping. You’d be silly not to get them.

DTina’s Boutique has adorable workout clothes. I love them for their scrunch booty leggings and scrunch booty shorts. They are the most affordable “scrunch booty leggings” I have found and are super high quality. I was trying to find something comparable to my Celestial Bodiez leggings and these are it! They come in tons of fun prints like donuts and Mexican skulls but I am a fan of their solid color collection. I am a size small in DTina’s leggings and shorts and own a few pairs in scrunch booty. The leggings and capris are generally $45 for solid colors and the shorts are $30. You can also get them without the scrunch booty, but, I highly suggest getting it for its booty enhancing magical powers. They also have awesome sales all the time so sign up for their mailing list. I got my last leggings 30% off because of a promotion so they were $31.50 which is INSANE for handmade leggings!

Aerie believe it or not has super cute workout clothes and leggings now. I am a huge fan of their fall inspired workout capris in army green colors as well as deep maroons. My capris I got there are maroon and have lace detailed cut outs on the bottom. I got them for under $18. They have adorable. Spandex shorts for under 12 bucks too!

I love scoring deals on athletic tops at T.J. Maxx on brands like Nike and Under Armor. You can also get great deals at the outlet from those stores. I am a huge fan of Reebok outlet prices and their affordable spandex shorts I now have two pairs of them in super fun colors and prints. They move wonderful, they are super soft and are muffin topless unlike Nike pros. LOL.

I get most of my workout tops second hand at Plato’s Closet. I got a ton of cute oversized crop tops there that aren’t traditionally workout clothes but are adorable to complete your modern athletic look.
