I just got the BEST deal at Old Navy: three new sports bras + another pair of Perfect 5” Shorts for $26! Booyah. I’m a shopping maniac.

Check this out: I saved 25% with the code BRONGAP25, cashed in a rewards card for $10, used $7 from an old gift card, and then got free shipping because my order was originally over $50. Oh, and I got 2% back from Ebates, so I spent even less than $26!


I was only planning to buy a few new sports bras to replace some of my nasty ones, but the Perfect 5” Shorts are on sale right now, so I snapped up another pair. I’ve been living in them the past few days. 

Now that marathon training has officially started, I decided to rotate out some of my gross, smelly workout gear. I generally keep fitness apparel until it’s physically falling apart or I can smell myself when I wear it. (I know, I’m gross.)

It actually takes a lot for me to get rid of workout gear. I have a few sports bras that are a good 3+ years old, which barely have any support left to them and smell absolutely disgusting, so I finally threw them away yesterday. (They were much to gross to donate!) Now, I am really psyched that I have new sports bras coming to me in the mail! I bet they’ll help me run faster.

I’ve recently started spraying my sweaty clothing with Febreze SPORT before I throw it into the laundry. The heat and humidity has been killer lately, so I’d rather not have my workout gear fester in its nastiness until I get around to washing it. The Febreze seems to be helping. At least it smells nice.

How do you decide that it’s time to get rid of old workout gear? What finally makes you buy new stuff?


Today’s lunch was leftover salad with crumbled gorgonzola, a Dr. Praeger’s Sweet Potato Pancake, and Annie’s Goddess Dressing drizzled on top. I also made a chocolate-banana smoothie with a frozen banana, chocolate almond milk, and vanilla protein powder. Mmm! I want another one!

I’m off to NuVal for the rest of the afternoon. Hope you’re enjoying the start to your week!
