Saturday Stuff and My First Giveaway

That's right, a giveaway! Yay, I'm super excited. But first, my stuff.

I didn't try to workout on Thursday or Friday, I was just lazy recuperated and today I decided to give the walking and jogging another go. I started out walking, nice and slow and it felt good. So I sped it up some  and that felt good too! Then I jogged slowly for a minute and walked again and STILL felt good, so I jogged for 5 minutes straight and then cooled down. I immediately stretched, took an ibuprofen, drank hot cocoa with glutamine and iced my knee. Then I took a nice hot bath and I'm not in any pain. I'm so happy! I'll let it rest again tomorrow, maybe do pilates, and then I'm going to give the 1 minute walk, 1 minute run a go on Monday.

Last night hubs and I went to see Chronicle.



It was hubs pick but I really enjoyed it!! After than we just came home and were lazy. I had the yummiest dinner (which I had tonight too) of waffles topped with the amazing chocolate peanut butter, banana slices and chia seeds. SO GOOD!! I think I could eat it all day!!

Now for the really good stuff!! I love headbands when I run, but I could never find one that stayed on. I've tried tons of different brands but could never find the perfect one. Then I saw that Kara of Chickbands was doing a promotion to help Christina raise money for her Ride for the Heart so I bought headbands for me and the girls, expecting cute and that's about it. They got here super fast and I loved the way they looked! The girls wore theirs for the Disney Kids Races and they all stayed perfectly.


Post race, still in place!

Then I wore my red sparkle for my half and it stayed the whole time, I never thought about it and it was perfect.


My hair still looks good 13.1 miles later!

After the race and a shower I slid on the silver glitter. I cannot say enough about how great I think these headbands are! They are cute and THEY STAY PUT!! I've been alternating between the 3 different colors of sparkle I got from Kara most days since the race, they are so comfortable and cute and they don't ever bug me or slip. Kara has been kind enough to allow me to give away 3 of her Chickbands and the winners each get to pick their own style.

  9. I've wanted to try out headbands for a while. It's been hard to find ones that won't slip. It would be so exciting to try a purple sparkle!
