Posting has been very irregular lately. I can’t even blame it on work, which has been pretty slow for the past few weeks. It’s really because I’ve been spending a lot of time at the gym, which leaves me less time in the evenings to blog.
I take a Zumba class several times a week, but I’ve also been running a lot lately. I’ve been slowly chipping away at the Couch to 5K Program, and I finally feel like I’m making real progress. I’m officially running for more of the 30-minute period than I’m walking, which is verrrry exciting. On my way to being a real runner!
But spending all of this time at the gym means I spend a lot of time getting very, very sweaty. And I could not figure out a good solution for my hair, which was driving me insane. I’m growing out blunt bangs, so I have some longer pieces that I just clip back with bobby pins in addition to my ponytail. But even with ponytail + bobby pins, I still had a halo of little whispies every time I finished a workout. Even worse, when I tried to tuck the whispies behind my ears they would get sweaty and drippy and gross.
I bought some Goody Non-Slip Headbands at Target, because the price was right (a 3-pack for $5!). But the Goody headband fell off my head three times in a one-hour class. Unacceptable. So I very reluctantly paid $15 for a Sweaty Band headband from the specialty running store.
Life. Changing. This headband literally did not budge from my head the entire class. It was a miracle! I am officially obsessed and want ones in other colors now (I have this one in pink, blue, and purple, which matches most of my workout tops).
Sweaty Bands: highly recommended. I’m going out of town this weekend, but when I return I will write about an exciting new development in my hunt for the perfect black bag.
