No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Sorry I've been slacking y'all! I know many of you have written about the challenges of trying to work out new routines. Dang, it is a difficult juggling act. The last two weeks have been full of Dr appts, birthdays, birthday parties and guilt. I don't even think I managed to get 1 week's worth of mileage in...Ah well, water under the bridge, lessons learned, (okay, relearned), priorities re-evaluated--on to THIS week.
Kid had to go in to school early to make up a missed PE test (Dr appt due to actual run-in with a corral fence) so I've got an extra amazing 20 minutes before I head out the door for a run. It is not quite light out so I get to hang with you guys, my BVF's (best virtual friends!) :)))
Random question for those who exercise with bangs. How do you keep them off your forehead, out of your eyes? I have my super cool funky Guatemalan cotton headband/kerchief things, unfortunately, they have shrunk in the wash and are now tight enough to give me nasty headaches. I have other headbands, you know the Goody kind you get at Target. The big thick ones are so soft they end up popping off the back of my head. The ones that are like a super size ponytail band stay put a bit better but don't do anything to keep the sweat from running down my eyes. I'm at the point where I may have to go all Jim McMahon with an ugly terry cloth one. Bleah.
Gravity sucks thought of the day: I'm considering going to the lady who does my eyebrows and getting a facial and a consult about moisturizer. I'm getting serious wrinkles. I think it is due part to age and part to loss of my chubby cheeks. I have no interest in having "work" done--but I've never been one to have much of a beauty routine. I'm thinking that my 30+ year habit of wiping my face down at night with a cotton pad soaked in Seabreeze may need a tune-up. I've tried picking up a couple of moisturizers based on their lovely ads--but they all make me feel like I'm wearing a mask and/or they irritate my eyes.
Well, times a wastin, I'm going to check in on a few more of your posts and then go hit the road with my head squeezed just a bit too tight, but my sweat and hair under control! Have a fabulous week everyone!
