Um, did the earth begin spinning faster and I somehow lost six weeks?! I know I owe you a fitness-challenge update, so to apologize for my tardiness, I have an awesome giveaway today for some seamless bandanas from Hoo Rag. Keep reading for more details on how to win.
We’re six weeks into the ten-week challenge, and I’m doing … OK. I’ve had no trouble meeting my fitness goal each week, but on the nutrition side, I’ve gone a bit off the rails. Fall seems to be filled with food-centric celebrations, birthdays (Evan turned one on Friday!) and seasonal beer. Time to hit the reset button! Today starts the one-month countdown, so I’m going all in on the nutrition side and recommitting myself to tracking everything that goes in my mouth, and strictly keeping my cheats to those I’ve planned in advance. I want my money back! As for my workouts, I’ve been enjoying going on long walks with the boys to soak up the last few sunny days, have been taking some new classes at the Y, (re)started the Couch to 5K training program, and am continuing to do my small-group personal training sessions.
Enter to Win a Hoo Rag!
A few months ago, I had my hair cut into an inverted bob. I tried to do something a bit more stylish than the traditional “mom bob,” but I needed something lower maintenance that looked halfway decent with only a few minutes of prep time each morning. The daily ponytail wasn’t cutting it. Anyway, I really like my haircut for everything except working out! It’s too short to pull back, and it’s too long to keep out of my face without a zillion clips. I have horrible luck with headbands (even fancy, expensive ones that are guaranteed not to slip), and have continually come up empty searching for a solution … until now.
Enter Hoo Rag. (You’ll have to pardon the photo — my assistant only is three and a half.)
I Googled solutions to my short-hair workout problem, and came across a review from another blogger with the same problem. She was in love with the Hoo Rag, a seamless bandana made of 100% moisture wicking polyester microfiber. I HAD to try it, so I wrote to the folks at Hoo Rag, who graciously sent me two bandanas to try.
I’ve used them for a few weeks now and am completely sold. Yes, they did send these to me for free, but I will be buying more. The Hoo Rag does not move at all during my workouts, is comfortable on my head, keeps my crazy hair out of my face, does a great job of wicking sweat, and machine washes perfectly with no fading or distress. My little chef also loves to wear them while we’re cooking. (Yes, he may only wear undies while he bakes, but at least his hair is covered.) And he just looks so darn cute — another bonus.
