Do You Sweat With A Sweaty Band?

I kept seeing them everywhere. I had a couple of friends who just LOVED them, but I hadn't tried them yet. What am I talking about? .... well Sweaty Bands of course. So I wanted to see what all of the hype was about, and I tried them myself. My first thought when I got them in the mail was.. "Wow, these are really are cute."

So I took one out for a little test run to see how I liked it. Below is the red-faced post run pic. And yes, the Sweaty Band stayed in place.

But I've also found another use for my Sweaty Band, and that is post run hair. My Lil Man has now started pre-school, and normally (to be honest) I've never really cared what I looked like running or immediately post run. But since I'm running during his pre-school and picking up him up immediately after my run, I've been a little more 'aware' of my post run look since I'm now required to be surrounded by non-sweaty individuals who are picking up their kids. So I'm finding that my sweaty band comes in handy post run in addition to using it while running. :) 

And I would like to give one of my readers a chance to get their very own Sweaty Band. The giveaway ends October 16, 2013.

Full Disclosure: Sweaty Band provided me with a sample free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
