Exercise Motivation with Pretty Clearance Workout Clothes

It’s a bit of a cliche, but a new year is always a reminder to take a good look at what I put into my body and how much I move. While I try to make consistently good choices most of the time throughout the year, I have to admit that I have made some not-so-good choices in the last few months.

But I’m determined to make myself a priority and clean up my eating and increase how much I move.

Chadwicks of Boston Workout Outfit 7

The other day I took inventory of my workout clothes, and I noticed that they were in pretty sad shape. Most items are many years old and have been washed over and over. Some are faded, some don’t fit quite right, others have pilling and feel “rough.” I also realized I needed new shoes as I had been walking way too many miles in the ones I was wearing.

Wearing items that don’t make you feel your best can be a way of self-sabotage as you can feel like never going out and exercising. On the other hand, when you feel good in your clothes, you think you can do anything, and you can! I was therefore very happy when Chadwicks of Boston offered to provide me with some workout clothes from their clearance section*.

Chadwicks Workout Outfit 1
I picked a thin Cowl Neck Pullover in a pretty shade of blue, printed leggings, and Lightweight Slip-Ons by Skechers. The entire outfit is currently on sale for under $100. Plus, my readers can get an additional 20% off with Code CH64087 (good until 1/15/17).

I love my new workout outfit. The leggings have a nice amount of stretch as well as a tummy control panel that really holds you in, yet they are comfortable. The pullover is lightweight and feels very nice on the skin. Finally, the Slip-Ons by Skechers are the most comfortable walking shoes I’ve ever owned. They have memory foam that feels like you are walking on clouds. The first day I wore them, I walked over 10,000 steps and was raving at the end of the day how great my feet felt. My son commented that he had previously owned shoes by Skechers with memory foam, and that he really missed them and the memory foam. I can see why!

Skechers Slip Ons

During our family workout at a local park, it felt good to move, and I felt good in my skin and my clothes.

I also wore the outfit when we went hiking at some nearby trails and felt put together enough to quickly stop by the grocery store on our way home.

Chadwicks of Boston Clearance Sale & Additional Discount

Chadwicks of Boston has currently a wide range of beautiful clothes on clearance at very low prices. It’s a great opportunity to replace items in your closet that are past their prime, or to add something you’ve been wanting to get. And again, my readers can save an additional 20% with Code CH64087 (the code is good until January 15, 2017). 

Questions: Has the new year motived you to eat better and move a bit more? Are you happy with your workout clothes? What items in your wardrobe are just a bit too worn and should be replaced? Are there any items you’ve been thinking of adding to your closet? I’m thinking of adding the following basics from the clearance section, which I know I’ll own and enjoy for years, to my wardrobe: boyfriend cardigan, ribbed turtleneck, and a lightweight houndstooth scarf.

    1. Isn't it funny that we make sure to be put together nicely in "real life" but often forget about workout wear...

  3. I do find that my workout clothes are the last to get updated! Although it raises the point, that if we look better, we feel better!
    Thanks for the push! I didn't realize that Chadwicks had workout gear!

    1. Yes, clothes that fit right and look nice really make a difference. A few weeks ago, I actually cancelled a barre class because all my "decent" workout clothes were in the laundry...

    1. I just went back to barre classes and yoga after a bit of an hiatus, and I really noticed how worn my old clothes are since you look at yourself quite a bit in the huge mirrored walls throughout class... I actually picked the shoes as part of the outfit so that everything would match... :-)

  17. I agree! One of my favorite coaches says... feel good, look good, do better! If you don't feel good because you aren't looking good, then you won't do better. Cute exercise clothes are a key to work out success!

  19. Andrea you look adorable in your outfit. I know it's really not an outfit to look cute, but you do. When I wear shoes that make me feel good I want to move more. That goes for leggings and a pullover too. Once they start pilling they end up irritating my skin, that's not good. I'm going to click over and check out Chadwicks workout clothes, thanks for letting me know that they are comfortable for you.
