I am heading out of town on Tuesday next week for an exciting blogging adventure (I promise to fill you guys in the minute I get the okay!) and since I won’t be in town to train my clients any day except for Monday, I’m making it a point to take them through seriously sweaty workouts this week. ‘
One of my clients told me that she “loves to sweat” today and that was music to my ears! Workouts that leave me drenched in sweat are my favorite, so I totally get what she was saying. (Sweating outside in the humid Florida summer heat, on the other hand, is miserable. There’s a fine line between the two, my friends.)
In between training clients, I grabbed a quick lunch in the break room before it was time to teach water fitness.
On the menu for today was a vegetable-packed egg salad with two apricots and almonds.
Once I was done with lunch, I had about 20 minutes to spare until water fitness, so I downloaded some new songs to keep my class rockin’. “Tutti Frutti” was the hit of the day. My water fitness group loves their ‘50s jams!
After water fitness, I was absolutely drenched in sweat. The summer heat is here to stay! I couldn’t wait to hop in the shower and slipped on my old school shower sandals and quickly rinsed off at the gym.
Big slip-on sandals like the ones I wore to protect my feet as I showered at the gym today take me back to locker room showers during my high school days after diving or water polo practice. I just needed my Herbal Essences shampoo and I would’ve been instantly transported to the fall of 2002!
Actually, Herbal Essences was my “fancy” shampoo that I would save for special occasions. Post-diving or water polo practice, I usually used Suave green apple or tropical coconut shampoo because it was like $1.50 for a bottle and smelled like heaven.
Now I’m all about Marc Anthony Instantly Thick shampoo and conditioner. I also occasionally use L’Oreal Damage Erasing Balm on my hair as well to (hopefully) help with my split ends and keep my hair healthy!
Question of the Afternoon
- What is your favorite shampoo/conditioner?
- What was your favorite shampoo/conditioner in high school?
In high school I was all about Herbal Essences, Pantene Pro-V, Daily Defense and Suave. I occasionally used Ultra Swim because I was always afraid my hair would turn green from all of the chlorine, but I didn’t like that stuff at all. It always left my hair tangled!
