Essential Summer Workout Gear

Essential Summer Workout Gear | http://www.roseclearfield.com

Summer is the only time of the year I’m motivated to work out. I really admire people who have the motivation to work out all year round. Maybe this will be the year I finally continue the habits I develop in the summer into the next season. Having nice workout clothes and other workout gear I’m excited to use definitely helps. The vast majority of my essential summer workout gear is items you can use throughout the year.

Senita Swift shorts

I may or may not have decided to write this post so I could talk about Senita Swift shorts. Since I bought my first pair of Senita shorts just a couple months ago, they became essential summer workout gear. I haven’t looked back. Senita didn’t sponsor me to write this post, and I receive no compensation if you purchase their products. I found out about Senita through Kristy‘s Insta stories, and I feel like I need to pay it forward and spread the word.

Senita Swift shorts are well-designed, comfortable, and stylish. They’re priced competitively with any major athletic brand, like Nike. Each pair of shorts has several pockets, including a cell phone side pocket. I’m sure I sound millennial raving about the cell phone pocket, but it’s a game changer. In 2017, I listen to all of my music, podcasts, and audio books on my phone. Having a dedicated phone pocket streamlines my entire workout routine.

Nike tops

I do still own a few pairs of Nike shorts, which I like a lot and rotate through when my Senita shorts are in the wash. Almost all of my staple athletic tops are Nike. I like their tops because they’re loose, covered, and wick moisture. I know that I’m more modest than most women. But I don’t want to work out in really tight gear with a cropped midrif or or really loose gear that shows off most of the back. Nike strikes a nice balance in design, and their clothing is very durable.

The North Face sneakers

I’m sure you’re all sick of hearing about my North Face trail sneakers. But they remain amazing. I’m still wearing the pair I bought for our Montana trip last summer (similar). They’re starting to show a little wear, which isn’t surprising, given how often I wear them. But they’re still holding up well. I have worn these shoes on multiple trips (including Montana, New Orleans, and Europe), to numerous events around Milwaukee, and every single time I’ve worked out. There are days my feet will hurt from so much walking, but I’ve never gotten a blister wearing them.

In-ear earbuds with multiple ear adapters

Headphones are a must for me while I’m working out because I’m always listening to music, podcasts, or audio books. I love over-the-ear headphones and use them while traveling, but they get gross while working out. Most in-ear earbuds are too big for me. Earbuds with multiple ear adapters are the way to go. Most recently I bought a Fleeken brand pair, which have been great. The smallest ear adapters are comfortable for me. For the price, I’m impressed with the sound quality and noise isolation capacity. In the summer, neighbors have mowers and other lawn care equipment going constantly, and I never have to crank up the volume the way I do with other headphones.

Water bottle

I love water bottles with flip up tops because they’re so easy to use while on the go in the car, walking around the zoo, etc. I have been using a basic Rubbermaid model I found at the grocery store a few years back. I love the size and design, but it leaks often, especially on airplanes. So I picked up a couple of new water bottles this summer. Most recently I got a Hydroflask water bottle (flip top sold separately) after reading this post (thanks, Divya!). It isn’t cheap, but you get what you pay for. It’s extremely durable and holds up to its promise of keeping liquids hot or cold for hours.

I also picked up a Contigo bottle at Target this summer. They are everywhere right now, so keep your eyes open if you’re looking for a similar model. Contigo has lots of other models as well, if you don’t necessarily want a flip up top but need a new water bottle.

Finally, I really need some recommendations for sunglasses, which I wear all the time in the summer. Currently, I own one pair I like (just a basic pair from Target) and take them everywhere. It would be great to have a couple more pairs, so I could keep one in the car, one in my camera bag, etc. I don’t want huge, mirrored sunglasses, and I don’t want to spend more than $50. Let me know what you own and love!

What is your essential summer workout gear?

The greater Milwaukee area is home to dozens of fabulous farmers markets, including one of my personal favorites (and one of the biggest in the area), the West Allis Farmers Market. Many Milwaukee farmers markets operate through mid to late fall.

Outdoor Movies

There are around a dozen places to catch free outdoor movies during the summer. Check out the full 2017 lineup for the Milwaukee park movie nights here. Please note Fish Fry and a Flick isn’t returning for 2017.

Beer Gardens

Milwaukee is home to five fabulous permanent beer gardens, all of which operate through October. The city also runs a traveling beer garden from mid-May through early September. Enjoy a brew and a giant pretzel in a gorgeous park setting.

Summer Inspiration

I didn’t plan to wait until late July to share my second summer inspiration post. As many of you already know, this summer has been a whirlwind, and I didn’t get nearly as much content published in July as I’d originally planned. I’ll be sharing more on all of that as we move into August. For now, hopefully, you’ve been following along with my summer photography board on Pinterest and haven’t missed seeing my summer features here.

It’s not a secret that I love lake views. I could easily make my entire summer board a glorified lake views board. But I’ve tried to feature all of the elements of summer that I love, including eating outdoors, going to outdoor concerts, and watching the golden hour.

30 Days of Grilled Desserts

30 Days of Grilled Desserts | http://www.roseclearfield.com

Summer means grilling every week! As I’ve mentioned before, in Wisconsin, we tend to grill year round, regardless of the weather. But there’s nothing quite like sitting outside and grilling when the weather is nice. I tend to be really boring when it comes to grilled meals and default to the same half a dozen standards over and over again. When I’m planning meals, it doesn’t even occur to me to make grilled desserts.

But a grill is an extremely versatile cooking tool. It can (and should!) be used for preparing any variety of summer staples and treats, including grilled desserts. Thankfully, there are a lot of creative people out there who have put together innovative, delicious grilled desserts ranging from simple grilled fruit to s’mores to pie to cobbler. Happy grilling!

And yes, I realize that 30 days of grilled desserts is total overkill. A week of grilled desserts is more than enough to create a nice summer rotation. But I continued the 30 days food theme without even thinking about it. You should in no ways feel obligated to try even half of these recipes in a given summer.

Happy grilling!

Staycation with Friends

Just two and a half weeks after Jake and I returned from Europe, a couple of our best friends visited for two weeks. If you follow me on Instagram and have watched my recent Instagram stories, you may have suspected that my late June/early July schedule wasn’t very typical. As much as I love eating out for lunch and dinner and enjoying daily Milwaukee outings and nightly concerts, my day to day life is just a little bit different.

I spent those entire two and a half weeks between Europe and our friends visiting pushing ahead on blog posts and work projects as well as working on a bunch of random tasks around the house. I had every intention to set aside an hour or so in the mornings while they were here to do blog social media promotion and a little other work. I absolutely did not do that once and don’t regret it at all. I had enough content scheduled that my numbers stayed pretty steady. And I actually got some real relaxation time at home, which basically never happens.

Remember how Jake and I went to Montana to visit friends last summer? The same friends visited us in southeast WI this summer. Staying with friends can be a great way to take a vacation. Since we got married, in addition to the Montana trip, Jake and I have taken several other trips in cities where we have good friends. You get to see a new area of the country (or if you’re really lucky and have friends living abroad, a new area of the world) while saving money and enjoying a little more relaxed vacation environment. Waking up in someone’s house and having home cooked meals for at least part of the trip is really nice.

Even though Jake and I have taken several of these friend visiting trips, we hadn’t hosted one ourselves. Friends have visited us before, of course, but only ever for a few days at a time. When I visit friends and family, I’m always a little worried that they won’t really want to do tourist stuff. I don’t know why because I love taking people to iconic Milwaukee destinations. You don’t ever have to twist my arm to visit the Milwaukee Art Museum or take a brewery tour. Whether you’re hosting friends or visiting friends, don’t be afraid to suggest tourist locations.

Paul Simon at Summerfest June 2017 | http://www.roseclearfield.com

Our friends planned their trip over Summerfest. The first full day they were here, they saw the Red Hot Chili Peppers. (That night we were hosting a game night for some other friends who were in town.) It stormed like crazy, but the Red Hot Chili Peppers still put on a great show, and they had a lot of fun (even though one of them had to throw out their shoes afterward). We all met up on the first Friday of Summerfest for Paul Simon, which was amazing. I have been a huge Paul Simon fan my entire life but had never seen him live. It was truly a bucket list experience. Simon sounds better than ever, and he travels with an outstanding band.

We returned to Summerfest on the 4th of July. We were there primarily to see Third Eye Blind, but we arrived early enough to catch a few other acts. We watched ComedySportz, which is always fun. Then the opening band for Third Eye Blind was Common Deer. I had never heard of Common Deer, but they are so fantastic. I have. not. stopped. listening to Common Deer since. I’m sure it’s shocking that I love an indie rock band with two electric string instruments, keyboards, and male-female vocal pairings. They’re sort of a cross between my two favorite local bands, I’m Not a Pilot and Parallel, with a little brighter pop/rock sound like Paramore or Chvrches. Please go check out this band.

Third Eye Blind at Summerfest 7.4.17 | http://www.roseclearfield.com

Third Eye Blind was fantastic as well. They’re touring this summer to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their first self-titled album. (Does that make you feel old, too? Yeah…) As part of the show, they played the first seven tracks of the self-titled album in order. Hello, 90s heaven. It was unreal. The rest of the show was great, too. We had seen Third Eye Blind at Summerfest a couple years ago. It was okay but not a great show, which I’m not going to lie, was disappointing. This show was 10 times better.

Brewers Game 7.5.17 | http://www.roseclearfield.com

During the staycation, we also made it to a Brewers game and to the Milwaukee County Zoo for Body Worlds Animal Inside Out. When we were arriving for the Brewers game, it was raining and the roof was closed. Early into the game, the front passed, and we got to watch the roof open again. It may or may not been one of the highlights of the evening.

The last full day with us (they stayed at a hotel in Milwaukee the first few and last few days of the trip), Jake had to work. The three of us did the SC Johnson Tour. I didn’t take a ton of pictures during their visit, which included the Johnson tour, because interior photos aren’t allowed. But the few photos I’m sharing here of the Johnson campus are DSLR shots. The other pictures I’ve included in this post are all phone snaps.

Braise July 2017 | http://www.roseclearfield.com

(Don’t you love how one of the kids is giving himself bunny ears?)

Of course, any trip to Milwaukee has to feature stops at a lot of great restaurants. Our friends had a large list of restaurants they wanted to eat at during the trip. I’m not sure if we hit everything on it, but we made it to quite a few fabulous eateries. Throughout the couple of weeks they were here, we ate at Bel-Air Cantina, Braise, Pegasus, Gilles, the Milwaukee Public Market, Sebastians, Reefpoint Brewhouse, Sticky Rice, and the Rumpus Room.

Finally, one of the best parts of this staycation was getting to do basically nothing. Sleeping in. Spending two hours drinking coffee and eating breakfast. Relaxing and reading in the afternoon. Taking walks in our neighborhood. Catching up on everything that’s happened this past year. We are so fortunate to have such great friends.
