Go on a hike

  • Hike - Ever since I was little, my family went on a fall hike at a nearby mountain. The views are absolutely incredible, you get a sweat in, and you have the best fellowship. Plus, it makes for a solid leg workout.

  • Fall festival - Check your FB local events page for some festivals in your area. I found one for a food truck fest in my hometown and it did not disappoint.

Run in a race

  • Race - During the fall season, there seems to be a race every weekend. My husband and I joined one last minute and we both ended up placing for our age groups. The crisp fall air made for the perfect running weather.

  • Game day tailgating - Football tailgating. Need I say more? I’m a huge fan of getting my friends together to attend a game. You better believe I bring some healthy alternatives to the typical burger and beer bash - all the booch, bars and carrots.

CLOTHING

  • Lilybod’s crimson leggings - These bad boys are beyond comfortable. Not even totally sure what the material is, because they are the only leggings I have that are this silky smooth and high quality. The crimson color is goals if you ask me.

  • Sweaters - H&M has some great and inexpensive ones. Every fall they have an incredible sale of last year’s products - I got 5 of them for only $35 total!

  • Boots - JustFab has a sale for 3 pair for $39.99 that’s about $16 each!

  • Cropped sweatshirts - from Halio La. I have a grey one and it is mad cute but also comfortable. I love a solid crop, but the chilly fall weather means I need a little extra warmth. This is the perfect combo.
