The November Squat Challenge with Digital Curls

Last month I began incorporating weights into my workout regimen (Click here for 30 day progress pics) and now for the month of November, I have joined DigitalCurls for her November squat challenge!20131109-130403.jpg

It’s actually quite fun. The number of squats increases each day and there are rest days, too. I’m really loving it and can’t wait to get stronger and more toned. If you’re just joining the challenge, you can start with day 1.  One thing Chris points out is that you can break up the sets if 50, 60 or 100 is too many at once. It’s really up to you. Just stick to it! She’s made a wonderful video demonstrating how to do proper squats:

Stop Making Excuses and Save Your Do!

LC has grown to be a great pal of mine through social media, our love of food and fitness- and her ability to make me laugh. She’s such an inspiration!

I’ve come across women who have a strong desire to workout, but don’t because they are afraid of ruining their hairstyle. I myself was in search for a hair scarf or sweatband that would keep my hair as dry as possible during intense training sessions. I often need to run errands right after a workout and my hair is not always up to my standards. I would usually hide my do by throwing on a hat. Not anymore! I’ve found 2 great products that will provide your tresses the protection you desire while breaking a sweat in the gym.

“Save Your Do™ GymWrap is a stylish headband developed with a patent-pending revolutionary “Edge Control Technology” that minimizes sweat absorption through a unique blend of materials that allows heat to escape while letting cool air in. The moisture ‘wicking’ process occurs at the molecular level within the fabric resulting in drier flat hair! “{Source


The “save your do” gymwrap comes in three different variations, narrow, wide and triangle. They retail from 24.95 to 29.95. Click here to go to the website.

Sally’s Beauty Supply carries a similar product called the Dri-Sweat Edge Protector by the Wave Enforcer. They also come in different colors and wrap shapes priced at just 3.99. You can also find them online at various retailers such as Amazon, Walmart, and other online beauty supply stores. I have both brands and I’ve been using them for about 1 year now and they both work great.


No more excuses!
