When I was about 12 weeks pregnant with San, I had a miscarriage scare. I’d already had two other miscarriages in between my pregnancies, so when my doctor recommended I stick to very low impact workouts, I took that as an excuse to not exercise at all. And over the last year, I’ve gotten completely out of the habit.
But in the last few weeks, I’ve been itching to exercise regularly again. I want to feel strong and tone up my (very unimpressive) muscles, and I know it will be a good way to clear my head from the craziness that comes with working from home and simultaneously being a mom of three.
I’m still trying to figure out how to fit it into my schedule (without having to wake up early…I just can’t do it when I stay up late working…suggestions would be welcome!), which seems to be the most difficult obstacle. But one of the things that motivates me the most is great exercise gear. And even better is exercise gear that doubles as clothing I can wear outside of the gym, like these black Puma Rebel Sneakers.
Rack Room Shoes just released the Puma Rebel shoes and they’re such a great, lightweight, sleek athletic shoe. They’re insanely comfy and perfect for performance at the gym. But they’re also a good everyday sneaker for an athleisure look, like I’m wearing, with boyfriend jeans and a baseball cap. Or you could throw them on with dark jeans and an oversized pullover sweater.
They’re available over at Rack Room Shoes as of today!
