See, there's a little muscle on these scrawny arms!

During the summer I usually start thinking more about working out. Short shorts, skirts, and sleeveless shirts means I'll be showing more skin and I need to look GOOD! I like to do a mix of running and P90X about 3-4 times a week. I don't work out to lose weight but I do it to be healthy and hopefully get a little more muscle!
Even though I know the only way to get toned is to actually WORK OUT it still takes a lot of motivation to actually get my butt off the couch. One way to get me motivated is cute work out gear. I used to work out in old tee shirts and shorts which definitely didn't make me look good. I was also using the same pair of sneakers I've had since college! It was definitely time for an update. I picked up a bright, fitted workout tee from Target and these awesome Nike's from DSW. Paired with these Markia Magic Slimming Capri Leggings I have the perfect work out ensemble!
The Marika Magic Slimming Capri Leggings create a sleek silhouette with contour seaming and a sculpting, power mesh lining along the thigh area. The material is a cotton/spandex blend which is super comfy but also stretches to fit. They run on the small side since I'm usually an XS but the size S fits perfectly.
