For Two Fitness Review

*This post is sponsored by For Two Fitness. Even though for For Two Fitness sent me an item to review, all thoughts and opinions are my own.*

Since the belly officially “popped”, I have been on the search for workout pants that don’t cut into my middle causing unflattering and uncomfortable lines around my belly. I purchased a pair of maternity capri’s from Target a few weeks back, and they were okay. Something that would last me throughout my pregnancy.

For Two Fitness sent me the Ultimate Maternity Micro Plush Fitness Pant to try out. Since I am in LOVE with their tank tops, I had high hopes that these pants would be just as amazing.

What I love most about these pants is that they can be worn 1 of 3 ways: Above the belly, below the belly , and mid-rise.

I’ve worn the pants now to various barre classes and out for walks with Madelyn. I love the way these pants fit and they’re perfect for barre. One because the studio is air conditioned so I never felt too warm in these pants. And secondly, the flare leg on the pants is flattering  but yet they don’t get in the way too much during seat and thigh work. I have a few other flare-leg workout pants that get caught in the way of each other during certain workout moves.

As far as outdoor activities go, I will probably be living in these pants come fall. So far, we’re having a decent summer and with being pregnant I prefer shorts and tank tops for all outside workouts. Even though the pants breath pretty well, they are still fairly thick.

What I also like about these pants is that they can be worn even after pregnancy. The active capris I purchased from Target are cut to fit a pregnant body so they will fit differently after the baby is born. These can (and will) be worn after baby #2 arrives. That’s always I plus I look for when purchasing maternity clothes.

Overall I think these pants are great for air conditioned studios and cooler weather temps and I would definitely recommend them to any mama to be looking for good, quality workout gear to last her through pregnancy and beyond.

Pregnant mamas out there, what is your favorite, go-to piece of work out gear? Besides having properly fitted pants, I’ve been carrying around my hand held water bottle!

Mother’s Day Weekend Recap + A Giveaway

sisterssweatI started out my weekend with a sweaty Friday night brawl class with my sis and woke up Saturday morning for the grand opening of The Barre Code Brookfield. The studio is beautiful. It’s also nice and close which is a huge plus.

On Sunday, I woke up and was all set to run a 5k with Madelyn in the jogging stroller.

I signed up for Run Like a Mother 5k-a mother’s day race I’ve been wanting to do for a few years now, and the weather was awful. Not only was it in the low 40s, but it was rainy and windy. Something I probably could have forged through but I felt bad dragging Madelyn down to the lakefront for a race. I got to my mom’s house and we decided that Starbucks sandwiches and coffees sounded like a much better idea. I HATE not doing a race that I sign up for, but I had to think of the little peanut.

I purchased this For Two Fitness tank a few weeks ago. I LOVE their tank tops and workout gear. I wore their stuff with when I was pregnant with Madelyn and I’m looking forward to wearing it with baby #2. It’s very comfortable and grows nicely along with a growing belly.

Later in the day we met my mom and sister at Firefly for an awesome Mother’s Day brunch. I decided to wear my top from Stitch Fix. I never did a review of Stitch Fix because I received my first box early in my pregnancy and wasn’t sharing the news yet, but they sent me some really awesome things. I will definitely be doing it again.

I love how light and comfortable this top is and can’t wait to pair it with some jean shorts and cute sandals.

The husband and Madelyn definitely spoiled me this year. I got this necklace I’ve been wanting for a while on Etsy.

And a fun little polaroid camera. I love it!

We gifted my mom with a weekend in Chicago to see Dirty Dancing the musical. I cannot wait to head to the windy city with my two favorite ladies at the end of this summer.
