Make Every Step of Your Day Count

This past summer it was a goal of mine to focus on working out more. I may not have accomplished a lot of other goals or To-Dos this summer, but I definitely was working out/running an average of 5 days a week. I even challenged myself to get up early and run twice a week before my husband leaves for work (he leaves at 6:15). For me, it is such a stress reliever and helps me improve my mood overall. Coming from a high of accomplishing my goal of regular work outs, I started back at school last Friday. Well now what? There is no way I can fit in 5 workouts a week between meetings, my husband occasionally traveling, and infertility appointments. I want to stay fit and maintain my progress, but that needs to be done in 2-3 workouts a week. So one thing I am doing is wearing a pair of Sweetflexx leggings on those days I don't have a chance to hit the gym or the bike path.

Sweetflexx leggings are an innovative approach to easy multi-tasking and making every step you take each day count! They have resistance bands sewn into the front of them to give you an extra 4 lbs of resistance with each step. Extra resistance with each step equates to additional caloric burn (hurray!) and improved body composition with increased leg, butt and lower core toning. According to a Yale study done, for someone of my size this could mean an extra 200+ calories burned per day. So next summer you will be ready for shorts season with no extra work! The fabric is made with fabric designed to stretch 4 ways and is infused with crushed jade to help lowers your body temperature by up to 10 degrees and keep you cool.

I also love the versatility of a black pair of leggings. The athleisure trend is still going strong so this is the perfect pair of leggings to add to your closet! You can pair them with your favorite tunic, plaid button up, or a long white tee like mine from Tobi (this one is soooo soft and I love the oversized fit). These leggings are great for your day to day activities, errands, and running around with your kids. I am also looking forward to trying these out at the gym or on the bike path to amp up my workout. I love making the most of every minute, or in this case every step and these leggings help me do that! 

If you are interested in these leggings, make sure to use code IDoDeclaire for $25 off a purchase! 
They are slightly pricier than other leggings I have, but with the promo code and the toning and extra calorie burn it is so worth it!

  8. What a cool concept! It is so hard to fit workouts into a busy schedule, so ANY thing that helps is a good thing! I'm impressed with how much you're able to do even with your busy schedule. I REALLY need to get on a good workout routine--that is something I really struggle with.

  16. This look is adorable. It's no easy feat to make athletic wear look like a styled outfit. Nice! Question, how do these leggings fit around the waist? That's where I get into trouble. If a pair of leggings squeeze too tightly around my waist, everything looks like a bulgy mess.

  18. I came over here to tell you how much I love this outfit and then I found out about the work out you get wearing it...what a plus! I love this look. I never thought of wearing Converse with leggings before. I'll have to give that a try.

  19. That's so wonderful you were able to get into a workout habit this summer. Something I've always struggled with is finding my own fitness routine. Love this look on you, too! xx

  20. Those leggings are so cute! I love that you can work out in them yet they still look chic enough to wear during the day in an actual outfit!

  21. I have never heard of these, but what a neat idea! And, I would have NEVER guessed! I have been running 4 days a week with marathon training and it is SO, so hard! I used to do 3 runs a week and the other 2 days I'd do some other form of workout. But, until my marathon I will just be running... I don't have time to fit anything else in. I hope the infertility appointments are going well, I was just at lunch talking to a friend about hers!
