Modest Workout Clothes

With the New Year here, I know many of you are trying to lose weight. My most read post ever was the "How I lost my Post-partum Weight" post. Every one I know is trying to lose weight! I get a tad frustrated with ladies who want to lose weight but don't want to workout or eat right. I promise you, it's NOT going to happen any other way. I've accepted the fact that my body shape and type HAS to workout, if I don't workout and eat right, I gain. It's the way MOST of our bodies work. (I hate you skinny girls that never have to run, and can eat donuts for every meal and never gain a pound!!! Just kidding..but not!)

But, anyways, a question I get almost weekly is what do I wear to do outdoor activities since I don't wear pants. Just because I'm working out, I don't lose all my personal standards. So, I figured I would show you what I wear when I workout!

My favorite workout skirt is the Women's Running Skirt with Leggings from Kosher Causal. (use link below) This skirt is super stretchy and can be used for any outdoor activity. They also have it in little girl sizes! This is a MUCH cuter option than culottes! It is chlorine resistant, so it can also be used for swimming. I personally don't swim in public (I have a pool at home), so I don't ever worry about what I wear, but this would be a great option. (People ask me that question all the time too)

Here is what I wear to workout in! (I had to show you a lunge so you could see it's possible to workout in a skirt and still stay modest! ;)

The Kosher Casual skirt is a little pricey, although, I do think it is worth it, but another option is to wear any jersey knit knee length skirt with some yoga leggings underneath! I have a couple jersey knit skirts from Old Navy, they are so comfy!

Happy getting fit! I still have 15 lbs. to be at my wedding weight!

Here is my outfit from today! I got this new houndstooth shirt from Catos for $9.99! I love it!

This was my New Year's Eve outfit. I was so stoked about wearing my new $9.99 burgundy heels from Catos!

One of my New Year's Resolution is to read the Bible through this year. Last year, I did the devotion book Jesus Calling. Loved it, highly recommend it! What were some of your resolutions?

Happy New Year! God Bless

  1. I love the bright colors in your first outfit, and your New Year's outfit is absolutely stunning! Love the shoes! Love your workout outfit. I think I need to get something like this. I've been using loosish gouches when working out or walking in public, but they are not quite as modest as I would like, and I hate culottes! Great post!

  2. Carol, I haven't tried split skirts, because, I need something that won't come up if I'm laying down and doing exercises. That's why I love this skirt with leggings attached!

  3. Love the burgundy shoes! Only 9.99?! Can't beat that!

  4. These skirts are awesome! I'm glad someone thought to come up with something like that. I don't exercise, but if I did, I've always thought "What in the world would I wear?" A lot of people wear basketball shorts, which are baggy but are not ever long enough for me. I think I might would wear wind pants, even though I only wear skirts just because you don't have to worry about them being too short and they are usually plenty baggy. But I agree, we shouldn't compromise on our modesty standards for ANYTHING. I probably wouldn't worry too much about what I wore if I had my own personal home gym or whatever.

  5. Hi Lauren, like you I plan to read through the Bible this year, using a reading plan. I'm so thankful you are reading the scriptures rather than Jesus Calling. That book actually has some big problems and as an older Christian lady I would not recommend it for anyone. here are some links so you can read about the problems with the book, not the least of which the author and publisher have taken out some of the entries from earlier versions of the book because of the push back from readers. Please take the time to read these:

    1. I just choose to usually lay out in a summer dress and let the kids swim. I swim with my family but never with other mixed company. Just my personal standard. :)

  11. I make modest swimwear customized to your specifics on my website www.sewnbydi.com . It is something I've been doing for about 15 years. I also have customers who use just the swimskirt to exercise in. Come check it out! P.S. I am currently updating my site so am lacking very many pictures on the site, but would be glad to answer questions or email photos!

  12. I love all your outfits and your sweet personality. How did you get the waves in your hair in the second picture? I have a similar hairstyle and would love to know.

  15. Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to
    be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well
    as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
