Being Active Helps Me Be The Best ME Possible

This post was sponsored by lucy through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about lucy, all opinions are my own.

When I get a great workout in I always have a more productive day.  This is the motivation that keeps me going.  I’ve always said that running has helped me be a better mother.  It helps give me a calm center, patience, and the energy I need to take on life everyday.  Running, yoga, working out at the gym, that is my “me” time.  When I get my “me” time I have more focus to make dinner, clean the house, get my work done, and throw a royal tea party for my daughter and her dolls.  You should never have to sacrifice one for the other.  This is for you. The ones who have it all… on your to-do list.

When I get dressed in the morning I always put on workout clothes.  This gives me the extra push to get me out the door and stay active.  I love lucy activewear because of the versatility.  Whether it is a barre class, yoga, or going for a run lucy activewear covers it all.  With lucy I don’t have to sacrifice style for performance and vice versa.  I can feel stylish dropping my daughter off at preschool and then head straight to the gym and be ready to workout.

Raise your hand if you feel better about yourself after a workout? (*Raising Hand*)  I always have more energy to engage in life after a workout.  When I feel good I get way more done.  I tackle my to-do list which then comes full circle and makes me feel even more awesome.  It fills me with energy, excitement, motivation, great ideas, and most importantly, it gives me the patience I need to be mom.

I basically live in the lucy Hatha Pant.  The versatility is amazing.  Perfect for yoga, running, and I even wear them for long plane rides because they are truly that comfortable.  Hatha is even offered in a pant, legging, and capri.  The colors and layering ability that lucy offers is another reason why I love their workout wear.
