Olympic-Style Fitness & Beauty

why not workout more?
I’m always sad to see the Olympics come to an end. They’re one of the few things that really brings the world together. They also remind me of how much harder I could be working on my fitness! I mean, if these athletes can spend 10 hours a day training, surely I can drag my sorry you-know-what out of bed in the morning to hit the gym. Especially considering how much time I put into other things in life—my career, my friends, my Bravo TV . . . surely I can knock off a few more sets of pushups and lunges. Getting into shape before spring should be motivation enough, but having some fabby gear in my workout bag never hurts either:

I’m always happy to put on my Nike Women’s Free Run shoes ($110). / Insider tip: Head & Shoulders Green Apple Shampoo + Conditioner ($8) is totally volumizing and smells amazing after a workout! / Nothing is getting past Secret Clinical Strength Invisible Solid ($8), which keeps you fresh for a whopping 48 hours—including that 6 a.m. spin class—and is actually invisible. / Ray Ban Original Aviator Sunglasses ($145)—a classic, and necessary for keep those crow’s feet at bay. / Yup, I’m still using ye old Apple IPod ($149) but it gets the job done!

What’s in your gym bag these days? Any goodies I should know about?
