I am finally getting into the swing of things with running, just 3 weeks after being sick. Being sick really did a number on me and it even left me a little scared of running which all things considered is not a good thing because the marathon is a few months away. But I knew I had to face my fears and put one foot in front of another and take it one day at a time, knowing eventually I will get back to where I was.
That also applied to going to the gym with all the cardio classes I take. I eased back into the classes, not pushing myself, and modifying workouts as much as I could. I allowed myself breaks and did not beat myself up over it. I really listened to my body because I did not want to over do it and then backpedal my health.
The first week was rough and I felt super weak. And then by the following week, I felt more like my old self. Huzzah!
Lipton Publicity reached out to me once more about the Marika Magic Capri Shaping pant by Marika. Marika is a brand that has been around since 1982, but I had not heard of them before. The slimming capri is one of the brand’s hottest sellers and it can be mixed and matched with just about any existing top in every woman’s workout/casual wardrobe. It is extremely well made with flattering contour seaming and a sculpting, power mesh lining along the thigh area, resulting in a slender look and sleek silhouette. The capri has a 19 inch inseam, 4 inch flat waistband and a Coolmax gusset.
I ordered a large to be safe and kind of wish I ordered a medium instead. As a result, I am not sure if I really reaped the benefits of “shaping.” That said, the capris are extremely comfortable and I have worn them multiple times both in and outside of the gym. I have worn them while running, taking a HIIT class, strength training and in pilates/yoga.
They are very flattering and soft. The band stays in place and does not ride down. They are one of my favorite capris in my drawer. And even better, longer pants are also available in straight leg and boot leg variations which will be perfect for the upcoming Fall and Winter.
And right now, Marika is offering you guys a chance to try out these wonderful slimming capris along with other items from their line at a 30% (off your entire purchase) off discount using the code MM30. The offer only lasts until August 31st!
Thank you Lipton Publicity and Marika for this wonderful opportunity!
