One of my favorite trends lately is the marble trend. The marble print is going on everything and I’m really not mad about it! I bought my first pair of marble print pants from Firepower back around last Christmas, and I was so in love with the print AND the fit that I couldn’t wait to get more.
My fitness coach Alyx, the owner and boss babe behind FirepowerFit, knew how much I loved my white marble pants, so I was beyond thrilled when she reached out to me for a few color ideas on this new line of marble apparel from Firepower! My first thought was RED. If you know me, you know red, white, and blue is one of my number 1 color schemes (#Merica), so I thought red would be perfect to coordinate with pretty much anything.
I absolutely LOVE how these turned out! My first pair were the full length version, and these are the cropped which is perfect for warmer weather. The quality of these is great! And squat proof, because I don’t buy yoga pants that aren’t squat proof 😉
Use my discount code “REASONER” to save some money!
On another note- it’s almost Friday already! Yay. I’m currently swooning over this fall-like weather. If you haven’t worked out yet today, take your workout outside! Get your vitamin D fix! It does all kinds of good to your body when you get some vitamin D from the sunshine. Vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium. So even if it’s a ten minute walk outside on your lunch break, your body will thank you!

HIII happy hump day! Halfway to Friday people.
So lets talk about my favorite yoga pants. These blue and gray ones from Firepower are seriously the shiz. They feel so amazing on! The material is comfy and high quality. They are a little more expensive than what I normally buy BUT hear me when I say SO. WORTH. IT. They’re still cheaper than Lulu though but still the same quality (hello, score). And they’re squat proof ladies!! I love how high waisted they are so no riding down your booty as you squat. This black mesh sports bra is also from Firepower. You can get a discount with my code – ‘REASONER’! I’ve got more exciting, new Firepower looks coming soon so stay tuned for those.
I have mentioned recently that I’m struggling with a knee injury that has set me back in my workouts (hashtag anxiety). Fortunately it’s looking like I won’t need surgery (thank God!) but they still don’t know why it’s still hurting. So frustrating! But anyways, at first I used my knee as an excuse to skip my workouts completely. Yes I was in a lot of pain so that’s understandable… to an extent. But now I have realized that instead of letting it defeat me, I can use this time as a chance to focus on what I CAN do instead of what I can’t.
For example: one of my biggest fitness goals right now is to do a pull-up on my own. So instead of being sad I can’t work legs on leg day (my fav workout) I can focus that energy on improving my upper body strength. My knee may be weak but my arms are perfectly fine. Might as well go hard with them! If you have something that you feel is holding you back from your goals, let it motivate you instead!
While rest days are extremely important, don’t use the little things as an excuse. Get out there and kick that excuses butt. Tired from work? Even just a 30 minute walk can boost your mood and energy. Too hot outside? Go for a swim – then you’re cooling off AND getting cardio in. Whatever it is, just do it.
And get some Firepower so you’ll look badass doing it 😉
Thanks for reading!

Hi pretty people!
I hope your day is going great, whatever you it is you are doing 🙂
I have talked about this towel in my instagram here and there, but it’s finally making its appearance on here. I love the round towel trend going on lately, and this one is such a fun print! I got it HERE and you can also use code “REASONER” for a discount. They have fitness apparel and lots of other goodies too! You’ll definitely be seeing more Firepower on here soon!
So speaking of bikinis… let’s talk about loving yourself – something y’all know I’m a huge fan of if you’ve read many of my posts.
Regardless of how big of a self-love advocate I am, I still occasionally struggle with loving the skin I’m in just as much as the next person. Lately I struggle with it more so than usual, because I’ve been unable to workout as much as I typically do, due to an injury. *Sidenote, if anyone knows how to acquire a bubble to live in let me know, I think I need one* So, when my ability to be active is compromised, the self doubt starts to set in and satan likes to take over from there. DON’T buy into it!
Am I right? Does this sound like something you struggle with, even if you can workout like normal? I always feel a little bit better when I can find someone to relate with how I’m feeling. So here I am, reminding you that you’re not the only one. Please let this be your daily reminder that you are amazing, beautiful, and a badass. Don’t buy into the negative thoughts in your head — having a roll here and there when you sit, or having stretch marks, or not having ripped abs, are not your flaws but what make you beautiful because no one else’s stretch marks, abs, or skin rolls are quite like yours. And that’s pretty cool.
So do yourself a favor and show your body some love. And this probably wont be the last time you hear me say that.
Thanks for stopping by!
