It is my personal decision not to leave my little Isabelle at the nursery at the gym, and I don't leave her with daddy because evenings are set aside for dinner and family time (since my husband and oldest daughter are at work and school (respectively) all day).
I know that taking time to work out is important, but it's more important to me that I have time with my family. During the day, Isabelle and I will take walks together (usually at the YMCA since winter has overstayed its welcome) but I haven't done anything more strenuous than that since before my pregnancy.
Once the weather is nicer, (which I'm SO ready for!) I
Anyway, regardless of my lack of workouts lately, I know the importance of a good head band to keep your hair out of your eyes and off your face while you're running or working out. I have some from Target (conair or goody or something) and I'm not a fan. If I wear them longer than a few minutes (which, duh, I'm going to) they cause headaches. And they slip around on my head a lot. This means either a) I have an abnormally large head and slippery hair or b) drugstore brand head bands aren't the best choice for fitness purposes.
Enter Sweaty Bands!
"We’ve turned perspiration into a fashion sensation! Sweaty Bands are the ultimate sports and fitness headband, uniquely designed for women and girls who want to show their style, even when they sweat a while! Slip into one today and become a Sweaty Bands believer."
Sweaty Bands were created by Donna, a mother of three, who has been teaching group fitness classes and personal training for 20 years. Sweaty Bands began as a way to pay for fitness related expenses and she originally sold them out of her gym bag. Now they're available online and the general public is able to experience this innovative product.
Sweaty bands are soft, flexible headbands that keep your hair in place and absorb sweat. I love that not only do they work well, but they are fashionable too.
I'm a big fan of the Sweaty Band, and can attest that it lives up to all its claims! I would encourage it for all your headband needs.
I asked my husband to snap a few pics to show off the goods:
Unfortunately, my husband cannot be trusted with the camera. He and I were focusing on different things.
(he giggled like a little boy when he saw me find this one as I viewed the pictures)
Ahem. Back to Sweaty Bands. I was forced to take my own (awkward) pictures after that.
With hundreds of colors and patterns to choose from I have no doubt that you'll a style for you. With a retail price of $15 and up, they're pricer than your average headband, but they're also cuter and work better, which makes it worth it if you ask me.
