Staying Active with the Boys + JCPenney Sweepstakes

It’s fall! For us in the desert that means more outside activities and getting active more with the whole family. I’m always concerned about staying comfortable and being able to move around without worrying about my clothes. It’s definitely a bonus if they look good too 😉

In preparation for more long bike rides, dog walks and family games of football or tag, I decided to get everyone some new activewear from JCPenney. They have a great selection of brands and styles for my husband, the boys, and me!

These pants from Xersion are seriously my new favorite. They aren’t tight but aren’t baggy either, have zippered pockets to hold keys and my phone and are so darn comfortable! I love that they can go from working out to running errands.

The tee also from Xersion is just the right length to not worry about it riding up when I’m in the action and oh so comfortable!

The boys are all about the joggers so they both got a new pair also from Xersion. I think these are going to get tons of use this Fall/Winter. My goal is to say “yes” more when they ask to throw the ball or ride bikes. It’s good for us not only physically, but relationally as well. Nighttime dog walks are the best time for conversations about life. We talk about so much walking/jogging around the neighborhood or out into the desert.

My husband loves Nike shorts so we added a new pair to his collection.

I tend to forget what a great selection JCPenney has so I’m so glad I checked them out when we needed some new activewear. I spotted a few more pieces I might have to go back for! I won’t have to go back for these new Nike shoes I bought though. I’ve been looking for a black pair and loved the fit of these ones.

Chance approves. I hope we can make this the most active year yet. We’re already off to a great start with all the travel we’ve been doing. I think these pants might become a regular in my wardrobe rotation though, especially for travel!

    When staying active with my family I like to wear leggins and a long shirt with my comfy sneakers.

  2. My two boys are under 5 so I pretty much live in yoga pants and t-shirts-perfect for hanging out at home or running after them at the park.

  3. Elizabeth McGlasson Reply

    I love wearing warm and comfy clothes when I am active in the fall and winter months. Long sleeve hoodies and sweatshirts are always great. And you always have to have a great pair of jogging pants! Thanks for the chance!!

  4. I don’t have nearly enough comfy, active clothes! Stylish knit pants and t-shirts that are attractive enough to be seen out in public would be perfect.

    In the Phx desert, wearing jean shorts made of the stretchable denim takes me from working out to shopping to soccer games and more. Fashionable t-shirts in pretty prints in cotton fabrics keep me cool and dry no matter what time of year.

    I like to wear my sweat pants so that I can maneuver easily. For our hikes I wear jeans.

  7. I love to wear yoga pants. I don’t actually DO yoga, mind you, but they are comfy and stretchy and not clingy. A flattering and functional choice!

  8. I love to feel comfortable, especially with 7 and 2 year old nieces. So I tend to wear t-shirts, comfortable pants or shorts, and sneakers.

  9. Something easy and comfortable, like a warm sweatshirt or soft leggings.


  10. I love yoga/soft pants and t-shirts. Simple, Comfortable, and easy.
