stay cool wear bamboo

Now that Blake is here I can’t wait to get working out again.  I miss the gym.  I miss the sweat.  I miss running up the canyon.  I miss me time.  I miss the endorphins.  I miss my skinny clothes.  I love working out.  I love how I feel when I do and I love seeing results.  After losing 50 lbs. last year I am motivated to get back my pre-pregnancy  body.  But now my goal is “Better Than Before”.  I want to work harder, sweat more, and look better.  I can’t wait!

Cariloha is helping me kick off my workouts and help me hit my goals and beyond.  Cariloha is Caribbean style and Hawaiian aloha.  The Cariloha team wanted to help you stay cool, just like you would want to while in the islands on vacation.  They developed fabrics that are a blend of bamboo.  Bamboo is green and good for the environment and can also be made into ultra-soft clothing, bedding, and bath goods that rival the softness of cashmere and silk.  “Bamboo is 3 degrees cooler than cotton and wicks moisture away from your body. It even helps repel odors and allergens.”  Cariloha clothing will keep you cool, dry, and looking fly!

Cariloha sent me a great workout outfit to head back to the gym in.  Not only is is super cute but it is super soft!  First I received the Bamboo Sports Bra in White/ Caribbean Sea.  This sport bra is so soft against my skin and held “the girls” right where they should be.  I love the Caribbean Sea blue contrast outline.  It turns a plain bra into a sassy bra.  I also like the it is made from a great moisture wicking material.  While I do love getting sweaty, it is never fun to be rubbed raw in the most delicate of spots.  This bra currently retails for $34 and is also available in black with a lime green outline.  Now don’t judge my body…I am only 3 weeks postpartum, but check out how cute this bra is!

Next I received the Bamboo Racerback Cross Tank in Persimmon. This bright colored tank is nice and long so I don’t have to worry about tugging it down all the time.  Just like the sports bra it is nice and soft.  The sweat is pulled away from my body and the tank dries quickly.   In the description online it says it has a “pro-weight shelf bra for mid-impact support” but this tank doesn’t have that feature (or at least not the one that I received).  It also says it has a “flow-mesh front and back yokes” that is suppose to provide “breathability and keeps you cool”.  To me this would say that the lighter orange color is a mesh material.  Again, the one I received doesn’t have this feature.  The lighter orange material is the same as the persimmon color material.  Lastly, the description says “Cariloha branding icon on back center panel”…it isn’t on the back.  It is actually on the front left hip.  None of these things are big deals…just something to be aware of if you are interested in this tank.  This tank currently retails for $34 and is also available in same white and blue combination of my sports bra.
