Monday Motivation: Rockin’ your favorite jeans

I love Mondays! The start of a new week always inspires me to keep reaching for my goals.

Need a little Monday Motivation?

Let’s talk about jeans. Your favorite jeans.

You know the ones. When you wear them you feel like anything’s possible. You stand taller and prouder. They make you feel like a million bucks. They highlight all the work you’ve been doing in the kitchen and the gym. They make you look fitter, sexier and more confident.

You’d give anything not to, ahem, ‘outgrow’ them.

Think of them next time you’re tempted to skip a workout or reach for a calorie-laden dessert. Remember how great you feel wearing your favorite jeans and use them as motivation to stick with your exercise and nutrition plans.

I asked some of my fellow FitFluential Ambassadors to send me photos of themselves wearing their ‘motivation jeans’. (Thanks so much guys, for your willingness to pose for me and providing brand info, ’cause you know somebody is going to ask what you’re wearing!) Check out their awesome responses below.

Rebekah Borucki & Baby Summer (from BexLife) wearing Banana Republic grey skinny jeans (I love these ones; grey is so flattering!);

Caitlin Croswell (from Cait plus Ate) wearing her favorite American Eagles (rolled up or down, as you please!);

Madeline Glasser (from Food,  Fitness and Family) in her J. Crew Matchstick jeans (and a very sassy scarf; and I know scarves);

Alexandra from Fun and Fit, wearing Nautica and sad because they are tearing below the back pocket, and she has been unable to find a new pair (anybody know where to buy them?);

And Katie Heddleston (Healthy Heddleston), wearing her very first pair of maternity jeans (congratulations Katie!) from Motherhood Maternity (doesn’t she just glow?);

Theodora Blanchfield from Losing Weight in the City wearing Citizens for Humanity (I’ve been lusting after a pair of these…) and loving how they make her look and feel!

And me, Tamara (fitknitchick), wearing my favorite Miss Me’s (I have 4 pair, but these are by far the best fitting of them all);

How about you? Do you have a favorite pair of jeans that make you feel fabulous? Does fitting into them keep you motivated to get your workouts in and eat well?

Please share the details! Brand names and pictures too!

  1. this all conspires to make me want some jeans!
    Im not a jeansmisfit.

  2. If you give me your long legs I promise to make all my jeans look fan-tab-u-lous, ripped pockets or not.

    • Ha, ha! I was wearing my new killer boots which help in the leg lengthening department!
      And did I tell you that I love your kitchen? Great for cooking with chia!

      • hahaha. Poor Kymberly actually has a very tiny kitchen. I am the one who gets that nice, sunny kitchen. And I found that 48″ 6 burner w/ grill Viking AMAZING stove at Habitat for Humanity for essentially new and a crazy (meaning “affordable”) price! Maybe I can cook myself some new jeans. And cover the holes with chia paste!

  3. Love this! I have several pairs of jeans that I absolutely love and feel great it- a pair of bootcut jeans from Lucky Brand and a pair of skinny jeans that are Citizens of Humanity :D.

  4. I love how perky you about about Mondays! Sometimes I think they are the worst day of the week, but you made me change my mind. Positive thoughts:)
    I do have a favorite pair of jeans…Dark redrock skinny jeans from express. When your butt looks good you just feel happy! Or at least I do 🙂

  5. I love the confidence that a good pair of jeans gives. Awesome ladies in this post!

  6. Those are some awesome looking jeans! I have a few pairs I feel good in most of the time, but they aren’t looking so hot in pictures at the moment. ;o)

  7. great post 🙂 thanks for inspiring my post today. sorry i didn’t name you in my post! i tried to look back for that thread on fb but there are just too many! anyways…my favs are my skinny jeans from NY & Company 🙂

    • No worries! I just wanted to let your readers see that your picture deserved a place in that post too! I don’t know the brand of jeans you’re wearing… off to google!
