These are life pants.
Years ago (before I became a mother) my dear friend told me how she wore yoga pants everywhere. She had the – “I am on my way to” or “I just came from” the gym look everyday – when, in fact, she never actually went to the gym. This was her way to manage the demands of life with three small children. She didn’t have time for any other look. Now that I am a mother I understand how running around in yoga pants everyday is both convenient and smart. Sometimes I don’t have time to pee or eat, much less adorn the most recent and fabulous fashion must-haves. So, yoga pants it is.
My yoga pants (or as I like to call them, life pants) are my savior. Parenthood has brought me to my knees more times than I care to admit. In order to survive and keep my health in order I have to be creative. I need to seize opportunities to exercise when I can. So, if my walking partners say they have a tiny window of time open to take a brisk spin around town, then I am ready, not just for yoga, but for life. I find moments for convenient fitness that can’t be done in jeans.
Of course, the perma-yoga pant look doesn’t work for everyone. Your boss at the office may not love this look for important meetings with clients. This doesn’t mean that you can’t throw a pair of shoes and shorts in your trunk so you are prepared if the opportunity for exercise arrives or, better yet, you seek it out.
