Marika Magic Shaping Capri Review

Caution:  What I'm about to show you has never been documented before.  It's me during and after a workout.  In all my messy haired, sweaty skinned, makeup free, red faced glory.  You have been warned.

As a pretty active person (who incidentally gave herself no less than 4 workout-related injuries one recent weekend - new personal record, by the way) I'm always on the lookout for new workout gear.  Especially gear that will make me look better while I exercise, because, let's face it - slicked with sweat and gasping for breath ain't so pretty.  I'll take all the help I can get.  

Did you know that slimming workout pants exist??  I didn't, either, until I got to try this pair from Marika.  I tend to stay away from all things slimming because I don't relish feeling like a sausage about to burst out of her casing (relish, get it).  But I'm so glad I made an exception for these pants because they are C.O.M.F.Y.  Seriously. They have these awesome little power mesh sculpting panels on the thighs (help exactly where I need it), ultra flattering body-contouring seams, and they don't squeeze at all.  Plus, they work!  I think I looked a little slimmer while wearing them.  The proof is in the pudding?

This is my new thing, by the way.  Running up and down bleachers.  Yep, up and down 15 times, 3 times through.  With bursts of HIIT in between.  And if I still feel I haven't suffered enough, then sometimes a short run after.

I'm happy to report that I've since recovered from all four of my self-inflicted wounds, but not before tumbling over during a balance exercise to land squarely on a (unfortunately hexagonal shaped) dumbbell .  So, even though these capris can't make me less clumsy, at least I'll look thinner next time I fall on my face.  Right?
