I’m going to make a bold statement, but I fully stand by it… Activewear is the official uniform of the modern mother.
Would you like to know why? It’s not just because we try to squeeze in a work out with our kids here and there when we can. We do this, but our affinity for activewear goes far beyond just the set aside exercise time. We live in activewear because life with kids is ACTIVE. And in order to keep up, we need to be outfitted appropriately!
Case in point – on the first day I was testing out the Yandy activewear line for this sponsored post here at 5 Minutes for Mom, I was challenged by my two little loves in about all the ways you can imagine.
I am Kristen Hale, mother of two young boys and regular contributor at 5 Minutes for Mom. My two little boys are 3.5 years old and 15 months old, and on this particular day, they decided to do all the boy things that involved fighting crime. Like climb furniture, run in circles around the house, pull dishes out of the dishwasher and toss them onto the hardwood floor, stuff the toilet with objects that horrify me (good bye, fancy hairbrush of mine), and basically do all of this 10 steps ahead of me. Had I been in jeans, a silky top and unsupportive flats, those kids would have owned me. But in my rad Yandy getup of celestial yoga pants, matching sports bra and twisted tank top, I was ready to take on any catastrophe these little superheroes brought.
Activewear is my daily uniform, my way of taking on the chaos of the day and turning each potential calamity into an athletic endeavor that fuels my positivity and problem-solving. The Yandy.com activewear perfectly fits my lifestyle and gives me the opportunity to stay comfortable, active and trendy while I do my daily mom gig. I honestly anticipated that the sizing of this line of athletic wear would run a little small, so I purposely sized up. It was unnecessary! These clothes are thoughtfully made with thick, breathable fabric and tailored for a curvy athletic build. In other words, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the clothing and even more excited about the budget-friendly price point. Because when mama fights crime with the superheroes, she needs to look good while doing it.
One thing I love about putting on my activewear in the morning is knowing that I am fully prepared to get a work out in at some point in my day. Being dressed and ready is half the battle – being intentional and following through is the other half. While it’s not always realistic to bring your kids to the gym to squeeze in a work out, there are plenty of ways to exercise with them.
