My experience with the WoolPRO Scout 1/4 Zip (And a 30% discount for you!)

A couple of weeks ago, WoolPRO sent me a couple of their products in exchange for my honest review. WoolPRO boasts a collection of 100% merino wool base layers suitable for all ages. They sent my way a women’s Scout 1/4 zip, as well as a women’s Skylark.

Last weekend, I decided to take my newly adopted pup, Sabbie, to the beach for the first time. It was a windy and chilly day, so I figured it would be a perfect time to test out one of the long sleeves from WoolPRO.

I know it’s about to be real wintery and cold up in here (New England…) and usually around this time of year is when I get more lax about my choices. But maybe I can beat the resolution rush this year and continue moving toward my fitness and financial goals through the whole holiday season! After all, more days off means more time to be outside, right?

Testing my Willpower

This week has been rough.



I’m not usually one to watch what I eat but lately it’s been at the forefront of my mind more and more. After having a delicious thanksgiving-style salad earlier in the week (involving dried cranberries, grilled turkey, butternut squash and walnuts) the rest of the week hasn’t been as successful. There were IPAs involved (my weakness!) and definitely some beef chili.
