It’s the most wonderful time of the year… Fall, that is!

I absolutely love autumn—the crisp air, slight chill, and exciting hint of holidays on the horizon. Not to mention all the pies!

Of course, Thanksgiving and the merry month of December also usher in festive foods, decadent desserts, and countless calories. I don’t like to deprive myself of baking (and enjoying) Christmas cookies with the kids, sipping pumpkin-spice lattés at the park, or taste testing every single side at the family’s annual breakfast buffet. It’s a time to indulge—in moderation, of course, and I want to enjoy every moment.

Plan a Family King Pine Ski Vacation

Some of my favorite travel memories involve being outdoors in the snow with my girls. We have the best time on the lifts telling stories and plotting our perfect runs (and the perfect hot cocoa break). I work hard to carve out vacation time with the kids--time to connect and make more

That said, I want to fit into my jeans come January. That’s why I’m extra diligent about staying active this season. Lucky for me, it’s also my favorite time of the year for exercising. A little light layering and some brisk jogging is how I get the job done! The bright sun and cool air make for perfect-power walking conditions; the colorful leaves and scenic ambiance offer plentiful eye candy; and these fashionably functional finds from Danskin Now are the icing on the Thanksgiving cake I plan on eating—without regret!

It’s easy for me to stay motivated to move when I feel good, look good (thank you, Danskin Now!), and get some fresh air and me time in the process. I like knowing that I can take care of my body, clear my mind (so important with all the holiday hustle and bustle!), and put myself first for an hour out of the day.


This look from Danskin Now, available at Walmart, is my favorite. These leggings offer structure, support, performance, and comfort with a stylish, but still subtle pink-and-purple flair. I matched it with a breathable tank top and a cozy hoodie for a pulled-together look that takes me from pounding the pavement to hitting my local Starbucks—because, for me, one generally leads to the other.


I also snagged this trio of Danskin Now goodies for a steal—we’re talking around $30. The fitted textured moisture-wicking leggings feature a deep teal pattern that pairs perfectly with this green tank and a thick hoodie (with thumbholes—bonus!).

With athleisure gear ranging from compression shorts to leggings, tanks, and more, Danskin Now offers everything I need to stay fit, look fabulous, and keep at it all season long. You better believe I’ll be rocking this uniform before, after, and probably during the big Thanksgiving feast. Stretchy pants are essential—and so is a post-meal turkey trot, of course!
