So like I said last post, I have been working out. Today is my 10th straight day and ALSO the last day for Level 1 of my workout. Tomorrow I start Level 2 and I can't wait.
10 days in and here is where I am currently...
I know. I still have a lonnnnggg way to go.
Thank God for these new favorite products to get me through.
1. Polar FT4 Heart Rate Monitor.
Don't ask me what all this gadget does, because I don't know...
I'm sure it has a plethora of talents, but counting calories/tracking target heart rate is all I need it for. Those little sensors that you keep sticking your hands on at the gym while you bust your butt on the elliptical are not accurate when it comes to calories and heart rate...not to mention, Lord only knows what kind of funk nastiness is crawling around on there.
This is the one I bought in case you want.
2. Not Your Mother's CLEAN FREAK Refreshing Dry Shampoo.
I have enough hair to rival that of a horse and don't have time to wash, dry, curl, tease, etc. every single day, so this stuff is my saving grace. I love it especially after a workout when my hair is wet. It creates a matte look on your hair, which I love and smells amazing.
I just take my hair out of my ponytail, spray on my roots and blow-dry...maybe takes me 3 min. tops. This is my hair post-workout last night after I sprayed and dryed it. Not the best pic, but you see my waves from the day are still in tact and will be ready for tomorrow.
you can get the dry shampoo from Target.
in an attempt to keep things classy (well, mostly in an attempt to not scare you) , I will not be showing you a pic of me in my sports bra, so this chic will have to do.
So this is borderline sacrilegious I'm sure...but I am going to say it anyways.
I am not a Lululemon fan.
It's not neccessrily that I don't like it, I just don't see a good enough product that warrents being THAT expensive. I understand that the clothes make you look really good, but I don't want my workout clothes to make me look good, I want to make them look good. I went into the store the other day for the first time ever because I needed a new sports bra and I heard their "ta-ta tamer" was legit. Well, it's not. The only thing legit about it is how un-tame my tata's were while jumping around the dressing room...though Kingsley enjoyed the show.
For the past 3 years, I've been using this UA sports bra and I LOVE IT! I promise, if God blessed you with plenty up top, then you will love this bra.
4. Neuro Sleep.
I am a night time workout kind of gal. Don't ask me why, just a preference. And while the workout kicks my butt, it amps me up enough to keep me from falling asleep so that's where Neuro comes in. This stuff is amazing. Makes me feel naturally tired, helps me sleep through the night and no grogginess in the morning. I get mine at a local grocery store, but the website should tell you where to get some.
That's all I have for now...Hope you ladies have a great Friday.
