When I was in my teens & early twenties, I had a very unhealthy relationship with food and exercise due to an eating disorder I battled for 10 years. Thankfully, I am fully recovered now and can appreciate exercise for what it does for my body & how it makes me feel. I know I will never be a size zero because that isn’t how I was built (which I’m completely okay with) – I find I’m so much happier when I focus on working out to feel strong rather than doing it to try & reach a goal that isn’t attainable for me.
I firmly believe that the best method for regular workouts is to do something you enjoy. The summer is my favorite time of year because the weather is nice enough to be outdoors and I can vary my workouts much more. And just as important as it is to do an exercise you love, it’s equally crucial to have workout clothes that are comfortable & that you feel good wearing. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of these Old Navy compression capris, considering that they only cost $17. The fit is also super-flattering & I love the little color pop detail on the leg. Plus the cropped length is just right for this time of year…and they come in tall & petite sizes too!
We headed to the local high school track for a little family exercise session to show that you don’t have to pay for a gym membership to get a great workout. I kept it completely real for this post – not one stitch of makeup and a messy ponytail…because I tend to break a serious sweat when I exercise!
