I have been going to bootcamp for a little over 3 months now, and I absolutely love it. My trainer pushes me to work hard, my classmates give me the motivation to show up, and I love that my work out is done by 6:30AM and I don’t have to think about it again after. Well, except for the next day when I’m sore in muscles I didn’t even know existed…lol! Yes, there are mornings that I have to literally drag myself out of bed at 5AM, and there are even mornings where I don’t make it (I blame Netflix), but overall morning exercise is what works for me. I would highly recommend signing up for a morning bootcamp if you are one of those people who doesn’t have that natural motivation to get up and go to the gym after work.

Marika Capris c/o // American Eagle Top // Nike Shoes
It’s hot here in Texas, even at 5:30 in the morning, so I normally wear shorts and a baggy tank top at bootcamp, but it’s September already so I know it’s going to start getting chillier soon. Once that chilly weather sets in, I like to wear capris or work out leggings when I run or work out outside. That’s why when Marika asked me to review a pair of their slimming capri’s, I got so excited. I have actually purchased Marika work out capris in the past at TJ Maxx and I love them. They are comfortable and last for a long time. There are a bunch of different varieties, but these specific capris have a higher waist, which I like because they don’t slip down when I run. Marika is offering 30% off to all of you readers from now until September 30 using code MM30, so hurry up and get shopping!

Can I just start by saying how crazy out of shape you can get in just one month?! On my first day of bootcamp I couldn’t believe how badly I already felt after not doing much of anything for just one month! Well, let’s just say I won’t be doing that again anytime soon.
The last two weeks have been awesome though! I never thought I would be that girl who wakes up at 4:45 to go work out, but I am actually loving it! I go to boot camp, take a shower, get ready, eat breakfast, and get some things done around the house…all before work at 8AM. It’s fantastic! I am the type of person who needs A LOT of motivation to get out of bed. If it was just me wandering into Gold’s Gym by myself to jog on the treadmill I would make it one day…if even that. Knowing that I have that trainer and my class waiting for me really helps to get me up out of bed in a hurry. It also helps that I have already lost 4.5 pounds…Lol:)
Now that I’m back in my work out state of mind (and feeling great I might add!) I have been eyeing some new work out gear! Here in Austin, even at 5:30AM, it is pretty warm outside and it just gets warmer as the hour goes on. It’s really nice to have a few layers to strip off as I go, so this outfit would be perfect for me. The best part? Adidas is having a summer sale and thousands of their items are up to 40% off! The sale is on anything summer, from running shoes to swimwear. Happy shopping!
