1. It’s a HIIT!
Or “high intensity interval training.” It’s a full-body workout where you do all sorts of things, like throwing 10-pound medicine balls around (which I did yesterday), old-school burpies, squats and other interval exercises, and there’s always something different thrown in to keep your muscles guessing.
Anyway, I just started taking classes at a studio down the block, and oh, my lanta! — to live in a constant state of soreness… But it’s a good sore, ya know?
One of my neighbors is an instructor and a personal trainer, and the studio is in her garage, so I just walk down there for an hour of sweet, sweaty torture.
There’s a woman in the class in her 50s who I swear needs to be my BFF. She comes dressed in black from head to toe with her hair in a perfect high bun, and she works out wearing a full face of makeup. And she likes to make naughty jokes. 🙂 Oh, and homegirl goes HAWD when she planks, whereas I just end up laying there sadly on the floor ready to pass out.
2. Champion sports bras
On that note, these Champion Double Dry Sports Bras are the sh*t. They’re soft, comfortable and keep me dry when I’m sweating up a storm. Plus, they never chafe or irritate my skin. When I work out, I layer two of them to keep “the girls” firmly in place.
They’re usually $25 each, but they’re on sale for $19.99-$21.99 right now at Kohls.
3. L’Oreal Root Cover Up Temporary Gray Concealer Spray
I picked up a bottle of $11 L’Oreal Root Cover Up Temporary Gray Concealer Spray in Dark Brown a couple months ago at le drugstore to cover my roots because I was running low on my fave Rita Hazan Root Concealer and couldn’t make it to Sephora before it closed (#beautygirlproblems), and yay! — I like it. It gets the job done, and it costs half as much as the Rita Hazan spray, which is still my number one, though, because I think it does work a little better (it’s more pigmented and doesn’t leave my hair as stiff as the L’Oreal one does).
