hot or not

15 Apr

Sometimes, purchases are good. Like last night’s…$20 a pair each…Nike tempo shorts. (Usually almost $30 each…and unfortunately the only shorts I enjoy running in.)

with a black sports bra? obsessed

And of course in a nice blue as well:

blue's clues

Clearly I’m not shy. (I cannot WAIT to run around on the boardwalk in these babies.) And, while some purchases are hot- others…are NOT.

i really bought this.

Okay. I semi-bought this as a joke…because I have a creepy obsession with Jill and I thought it was hilarious. I ALSO bought this because it’s protein powdaaa and I really wanted to start making shakes or adding it to my oats. After a week of trials- this stuff is bad.

I can’t help but wonder if it’s bad because it’s cheap JM-bought to be semi-funny protein powder, or I simply hate protein powder in general.

Gah. On to the next one ;)… any suggestions?

    Do you have a Trader Joe’s nearby? I get their vanilla whey protein powder, and it is really good. It is inexpensive and doesn’t taste chalky or processed.

      Yes! There is one about 25 mins away- I will have to try it! That’s the thing- I don’t want to spend tons of money if I’m going to hate it. :/

    Those are my favorite running shorts! I have them in three colors, but I love all of the new patterns out this year! Since I’ve been rotating those three pairs for like…3 years(?)…I think it’s time to splurge on shorts again :).

      Right! Same here- considering how often I wear the few pairs I have now, it completely justified the purchase!

    Okay so I have got to try on a pair of these tempo shorts. EVERYONE loves them, haha! Glad you got such a good deal!

    My favorite protein powders are Tera’s Whey and Jay Robb. They’ve never let me down and both have pretty cool flavors!
    I love those tempo shorts! The patterns are so cool! I need to step up my game, mine are pretty boring.

    I am also looking for an actual GOOD protein powder because i find the usual taste of them disgusting. I really love those shorts, especially the first pair! I need some of those…

    i love both of those shorts. i always wear bright, fun colors to the gym!

    Love the pink shorts! I suggest you do NOT buy the Aria Women’s protein powder. I see someone suggested Trader Joes and that is where I bought it but I don’t think it’s their brand because I also saw it at GNC… Anyway, it is gross.
