WIN Detergent Works Wonders

Image
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received WIN Detergent for free from WIN products in consideration for a gear review 

What's that smell? I just washed these. Anyone else ever have this issue? I found out the stinky way that washing with my same ole go-to detergent doesn't always work when it comes to workout gear.
I tried some home made ideas and that 'helped'. But I didn't feel that it eliminated all of the odor. Then I tried WIN.


I have sensitive skin so I was happy to see that not only does WIN come in fresh scent but it also comes in a dye and fragrance free version. I brought back a lot of smelly clothes from our long summer trip, and I'd like to report that (affiliate link)  WIN  removed all of the odor.

I Have A Confession To Make About My Weight

I'm trying to write this via mobile - so please ignore typos and weird spacing :)

This past week hasn't been an easy one. In fact, I know it's going to take me some time to work through some current issues.

Never Give Up On You

It's easy for me to encourage others - in life - in their goals - their dreams. But I often struggle to encourage myself.

Do you have that problem or is it just me? I often struggle to meet my own expectations that I have for myself.. actually a lot of the time I sabotage my goals before I start them... by having negative thoughts about achieving them.

Why oh why do I have such a hard time believing in me?!?  But I do struggle with that.. but it doesn't mean that I always have to... and I don't intend to.
