Blue and Barefoot

I used my blue and black 1” Sweaty Band today at work yesterday. I found it a little tight, but it stayed put once the little piece of elastic found the perfect spot to stop at in the back of my head. I noticed that it did not stay flat on my head – it seemed to sit on an angle.  After work I pulled my hair into a low ponytail and braided my hair – went for a run (2.21 miles – 29.19 mins) and it stayed in place and held all my little hairs in place.  Took pictures – but having technical issues with my phone.

I saw the new Barbie Katniss doll that is available for preorder and she is absolutely adorable! The eyes are very nicely done – and it does resemble Jennifer Lawrence a bit. It definitely is one of the nicer Barbie character dolls that has been released recently.
Listened to my favorite podcast yesterday, DIS Unplugged, missed a couple of episodes since I don’t have any plans to get up to Orlando anytime soon. I keep debating on signing up for the Tower of Terror run, unless I get a raise or a new job, just can’t put it in my budget. But back to the DIS – love them and have been a listener for years. They are a quirky bunch, and the conversation can go a little to the adult side, but I like their honest opinions. They just reviewed the new Fantasy and it sounds FABULOUS!!! I may have to play the lottery to see if I can go on a Disney cruise.
A few weeks ago I entered in the Toms Shoe Essie nailpolish giveaway and received a bottle of barefoot blue to participate in Barefoot for a Day on Tuesday, April 10, 2012. I did kickoff my shoes a number of times in the office and as soon as I walked in the house – shoes came off – it might have even been a good day to start running barefoot, but I see way too much broken glass on the sidewalk that I could see ending my day with a trip to the ER, so for my run, I had to wear my sneakers.


Learning to Jump Rope Again

I picked up a $2 jump rope at Walmart this weekend – and no it wasn’t from the kids section!  Decided to use it today at lunchtime in the gym. What a SPAZ I am!  I was laughing so hard at myself – thought I was going to have an accident.  Seriously – how hard is it to jump a rope?  I see my 9 year old do it all day long!  Well, I had to start with baby steps….first doing two step skips – about 5 minutes later I was able to jump with both feet at the same time.  Then it took another 10 minutes to not get tangled in the rope for more than 5 jumps.  However – I did get a good cardio workout, which was my goal.  Once I get a little better I may actually buy a better rope.

Last night I had to cook dinner – James had to work the late shift, so he left some cutlets ready to cook.  In the mail was my Sweaty Bands!!!  The ones I won on The Marathon Show.  Aren’t they GORGEOUS?  I brought one in to work today to try out.  Will let you know how they work.


Off Tomorrow – 3 Day Weekend!

No, my office is not closed, but I will be taking the day off. I hope that the day is sunny and we can go to the beach. If not, my little one and I plan on painting eggs.

Didn’t do the gym yesterday :-(  My coworkers and I went out to celebrate winning a $20M job for our company. I tried to eat healthy – but don’t think the Shrimp and Lobster chowder is considered diet food. Today I won’t be able to do the gym, but plan on running after work. Running outside is really kicking my butt….so I plan on running outside as much as I can even though these hot days really make me want to run on the treadmill with the A/C on high!

I watched Joe from the Marathon Show the other day while he ran and had it televised. I jumped on and off and I actually won Sweaty Bands! Can’t wait to get them – I have long hair and usually just put it in a low ponytail, but I have all these short broken hair in the front that I hope this will help keep away from my face and stay in place. Will defintely post to let you know how they worked for me.
