Today is the 2nd. New Year New Gear Reveal. The 1st. one took place on February 4th. You can check out that post here. So the idea behind this program came from Nicole at Apples and Arteries. My thought behind joining the program was this: Why not motivate a friend to stay active with a New Workout Item, and at the same time receive an item that would inspire me! New Year New Gear.


So I received my Gear from Nicole at Apple and Arteries! She sent me this wonderful long sleeve workout top. I really needed this top. I have been wearing a cotton t-shirt over my sports bra all winter while doing my cardio, and I always end up soaking wet with sweat and then I get cold when I start my weights workout. Not anymore, with this new moisture wick material I can do my cardio and go right into my weights or Yoga with a dry top. I am loving the color, its such a fun combination of baby blue and hot pink!


This material, its soft, light and comfortable.


Nicole also sent me a note to keep me motivated and some really bright pink shoe laces! I am so excited to string up my hiking shoes with these little pink cuties. She also sent me a huge jug of Raw Protein Powder. A short while back I did a post about some Things I am Loving and this protein powder was on my list. Well Nicole had a jug and really did not care for it, and told me she was going to send it my way. So after getting paired with me for the New Year New Gear exchange, she just sent it along with my Gear! Bonus for me.


I sent some Gear to Lindsay at Fit and Awesome!
