That’s the rallying cry made by Oprah Winfrey in her new series of commercials for Weight Watchers. And, it has really hit home with many of the women that I know. After all, wanting to lose a bit of weight is the nation’s #1 New Year’s Resolution.
Oprah’s own struggle with the weight loss/weight gain rollercoaster has been legendary. Who can forget the dramatic “little red wagon” moment, when Oprah arrived on stage hauling a wagon filled with the meat fat equivalent of all the weight she has lost? (Be sure to watch the video below if you have never seen this episode.)
If losing weight and getting fitter in the New Year is on your Resolutions List, then these cute workout capris from Blink Creations should be part of your plan. This is not to suggest that clothes make the man (or woman!). You can certainly work out in your teenaged son’s old football jersey and your ancient, ratty sweatpants from college (I know that I have).
But mentally, I feel a big difference if I “suit up.” It’s a gladiator thing!
These capris are very versatile and are good for cycling, yoga, rowing, running, or weight lifting. And, they are a Spandex, cotton and polyester mix, so they have stretch and softness, but also breathe. The mix also means they are very easy to care for – just toss them in the washer and dryer.
Plus, they are so cute! I love the contrasting trim in the flattering “V” pattern at the waist. It’s slimming and adds a nice detail, particularly if your workout is in a public gym or outside. (I work out in the home gym my husband and I installed a few years back – no one to judge me but the cats!)
I chose a cheery bright blue trim, but the capris are also available with a nice neutral grey, sassy shocking pink, and a vibrant cherry red detail. They come in sizes Small-X-Large and do tend to run small (plus they include cotton) so think about ordering one size up, especially if you are between sizes.
The List Price on the Blink Creation capris is $25.00, which is about what you would expect to pay in a major sporting goods store like Dicks, Modell’s or Sports Authority. But, with Amazon Prime the price is just $9.89!
I think Oprah would approve…
