I actually need a hero. One who will come over, scoop the cat box, return emails and clean my house while I nap. Oh wait, Grandma D does a lot of that for me when she’s babysitting, just not the email thing. In fact, she still has a blue face on Facebook that drives me nuts.
Before we talk
heroes Halos, I felt like I let you down with my post yesterday. What’s a What I Ate Wednesday post without a picture of dinner?
I even stepped it up a notch last night by adding a couple of these artichokes I found at Costco before roasting the broccoli slaw.
Why yes, that is how much red pepper I usually add in my sauce and yes, I measure out a 1 cup serving every single time.
Also, just keeping it real here, but I sure lived up to the post I wrote yesterday. I was a grumpy-grump all day and still didn’t manage to get halfway through my to do list. You go girl. Ha!
(Are you on Instagram? I just started posting more pictures on there and it’s so fun.)
Here we go.
I Need a Halo, you need a Halo, we all need a Halo.
. (That song “I Need a Hero” comes into my head every time I type that.)
Not only was I intrigued to learn more about them and their Sweat Block Seal, but the boys and I thought the mannequin heads were pretty cool.
Yep, I’m that girl.
After chatting up the nice people a bit (and having Joaquin have a minor meltdown) I was sent home with these to try (probably just to get my crying toddler away from their booth).
I didn’t know quite how to wear them at first. Across my forehead like the cool mannequin or a little higher to hold my hair back. I wanted them to stop the sweat, but be fashionable too, you know? I tried out the Halo II (pullover version) first.
That picture was taken after I taught a couple classes. I swear there were about 24 people on that room prior, but I didn’t want to subject them to my picture taking.
At home I opted for the Halo I (tie version) for a treadmill run to put the Sweat Block Seal to the test.
I have to say the whole tying in back thing made me feel a bit cool.
As far as the test- it passed.
These headbands pretty much rock and this Sweat Block Seal is no lie (even if you wear them higher than you’re supposed to).
Not only do they block the sweat, but they also cover up dark roots if you haven’t had your hair done for awhile.
I liked my new headbands so much I contacted the company to see what other products were available. I was sent a hat with the same sweat blocking technology.
I proudly sported it the other day on my long training run.
(Could my hat be any lower?)
I also got a few of their new hairbands to try.
These don’t have the moisture wicking technology, but they’re pretty darn cute.
I wore one the other week to try to impress my trainer Bob.
It stayed in place the whole time without slipping and survived the 3 hours long car ride home.
Here’s a couple other places I’ve been sporting these little gems around.
YMCA Fitness Palooza Conference
the gym treadmill (While watching Access Hollywood Live from 11-12)
out for a stroller run
teaching my BOSU class
and back on the darn treadmill
Ugh. Okay, enough pictures on me already, right?
