What a busy week it’s been! Nevertheless, I still managed to get four decent workouts in. (Boy, let me tell you…keeping a workout log certainly helps me stay accountable and remember to get my workouts in for the week!)
Week 8 (Feb 25-March 3):
Feb 25: Lauren Conrad’s Calorie Blast workout + 3x arm circuit with weights
Feb 26: 46 min, 4.6 mile treadmill routine
Feb 27: rest (road trip to Madison to present at a conference…loooong day!)
Feb 28: Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred (Level 1), 30 minute incline walk
March 1: rest (work, followed by judging at a debate tournament)
March 2: rest (again, judging at a debate tournament)
March 3: 38 min, 4 mile treadmill routine
So a couple of weeks ago, I made a list of workout accessories that I had on my wishlist. One of these items was a hair band called Sweaty Bands. Luckily, they agreed to send me a couple…and I’m going to host my first giveaway for one!
So what are Sweaty Bands, exactly?
Sweaty Bands are made for ladies who still want to look put together while they are dripping with sweat! The bands have interior lining that gently grips onto your hair and won’t come off until you take it off. They soak up a ton of sweat and are washable. Sweaty Bands come in cool, funky colors and patterns that can be tossed in your gymbag without breaking because they are completely flexible and soft-sided. The styles are endless. (Sweaty Bands claims that their product is just like potato chips, you can’t have just one…and that appears to be the case for me because I’m hooked!)
I got this adorable Houndstooth Sweaty Band. I love this print and would even wear this to the office! It matches with so much and really adds a fashionable touch to your workout attire too. The thickness of the band is just right and it holds my bangs back without having to resort to bobby pins. It is a really snug fit, but not so tight that it gives me a headache. What I LOVE though is that the Sweaty Band doesn’t slip off my head at all. I’ve tried so many workout head bands and so many of them slip off my head during a workout but the Sweaty Band stayed put- from intense runs to weight training to plyometrics. The gripping part of the band is like a crushed velvet– it’s super soft and grips your hair really well! And to keep it smelling fresh, all you have to do is hand wash it and set it out to dry- love it!
You can purchase Sweaty Bands online or if you have a Nordstrom store nearby, you’ll find them there or on Nordstrom’s website. They have TONS to choose from- solids, patterns, animal prints, stripes, polka dots–even Greek and custom Sweaty Bands! The list is literally endless! You can buy them individually, or in a six pack. Or if you want to save some money, you can buy from their Mystery Grab Bag, and they will randomly select one for you!
So here’s where the fun part comes in…I’m giving away a brand spankin’ new Sweaty Band to a lucky reader! Want to win?!
