Channeling the Mediterranean
So I’m super bummed… my Wear Red event today was cancelled because of crappy weather. 😦 It’s rescheduled for next Friday, so I guess I just have to be patient.
Actually, all of my weekend plans are getting cancelled (except work). I hope it clears up by Sunday so people can still come over for the Super Bowl!
I made a Mediterranean-inspired pizza wrap for lunch.
Laughing Cow Light Swiss cheese, turkey, artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes, feta cheese, dried basil, and pepper. Yum!
And a banana and some almonds to round it out.
One of my winter running essentials is my Nike headband/earwarmer. Can’t run in the cold without it! An added bonus is that it keeps my hair out of my face. I lost a lot of hair when I was in the height of dealing with my foot issues, and thankfully it’s started growing back in. However, it looks ridiculous- I have tiny short hairs sticking up all over the place, especially where my bangs would be. My headband has been keeping them from annoyingly hitting my face.
But what am supposed to do when it gets warmer? Be the idiot wearing earwarmers and dripping sweat?! Rebecca over at Bondi Band was kind enough to send me a sample to try out! (She said Bondi Bands were great for winter or summer, so if you’re like me and don’t like hair in your face you might want to check them out!) They’re made out of a wicking material that helps absorb sweat, which is cool.
Yesterday on my run I gave it a try.
It was really comfortable and didn’t slide around. I didn’t really realize I was wearing it. I’d say it’s a good intermediate between really cold and warmer weather.
However, when I pushed it back behind my ears (they way I would wear it in the summer), it kept sliding off the back of my head. I guess my head’s not big enough? And my husband told me I looked like Aunt Jemima.
Later I tried folding it in half to make a skinnier headband, which was more comfortable but you couldn’t see the super cuteness of it 🙂
So overall, I liked it for keeping my ears warm, but not sure about warm weather running yet! There’s TONS of cute designs over at Bondi Band’s website, so go check them out. Here’s some coupon info if you’re interested:

On a workout note, it’s icy and gross so running outside is a no go, yet again. AND the gym is CLOSED?!?!?!!!! GAH!!!! What am I supposed to do, run circles around my living room?!
What do you do to avoid cabin fever?! Maybe I should have saved that bath for today. hmph.
