Walk it out

Mar 3, 2015

Truth be told you will probably never find me in a gym! The last time I stepped foot in a gym was many moons ago when I did competitive cheer leading. I am just not a gym person. Chris goes everyday, and he always says. "one day you will go with me". Ten years down and no couples gyming to be seen. All this to say that I don't enjoy conventional working out. But I do still live a very active lifestyle. I have always been a get outside kind of girl. Growing up with horses I was outside everyday training, mucking stalls, feeding. I love to go hiking, and who knew I loved to walk and walk and walk until I had a stroller to push. However, moving to Alaska taught me that no matter what the weather is you have to get outside. Or cabin fever will grab a hold of you and take you down a dark and crazy filled path.
When For Two Fitness contacted me about trying out their maternity fitness apparel I was thanking the pregnancy gods. Buying maternity workout apparel never crossed my mind. I mean I own a good amount of work out clothing for someone who does not go to the gym. I like to think my day to day life resembles a work out. Chasing after three toddlers is some kind of calorie burner. And the strength in my left arm is super human from carrying around kids the last 5 years (tell me other moms know what I mean). 
Needless to say I am obsessed with this top and pants. The top is the softest thing to caress this belly of mine. It hugs you in all the right places, and has a magical amount of stretch without being loose. The pants are some kind of wonderful. The waistband allows for you to wear them as a full panel, and pull them up over your bump. Or fold them down. They are so comfy and soft that I know I will be living in them long after baby is born. 
It's not always easy to find the motivation to get up and walk it out when the weather is constantly handing you cold, freezing, ice, and snow. But I always feel so much better after moving around a little bit. Not to mention my lower back and hips thank me for not curling up on the couch. 

Oh and if you are wondering what is on my feet....those are the latest and greatest fashion accessory! Ha! Kidding those are spikes for your shoes so you can manage to walk around the trails of Alaska. 
I highly highly recommend checking out For Two Fitness for maternity work out clothes. They have some really cute graphic tees, and for all my yoga going mamas they have so many cute options! Or if you are like me and just like to get outside, or possibly sport your workout gear to preschool pick up, you will love all the cute clothes they have. 

What I'm wearing:
jacket: marmot
top: for two fitness c/o
pants: for two fitness c/o
shoes: nike

A huge thank you to For Two Fitness for sponsoring this post. As always I would never tell you guys about a product I truly didn't enjoy. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
