Jockey sports bra and Purex Crystals; Giveaway

Giveaway of Jockey sports bra and Purex Crystals

In my last blog I told you I am trying to get into shape by fast pace walking every day.  There is one thing that you should have to be a good fast pace walker, a comfortable sport's bra.  I know we don't like to talk about our unmentionables, that why they are called unmentionables.  But ladies, lets be honest, we need some support.  Not having the right sport bra fit can be uncomfortable and can lead to serious back problems.  Not all Sport bras are created equal. So how do you know which sport bra to buy?  First you much find a brand that you can trust and one that has stood the test of time.
Click here for a 20% off Jockey®’s coupon 
Jockey has been a trusted brand for men, women and children for many years.  Now they have come out the a Tech Terry Performance Sports Bra.  There are many benefits to Tech Terry Performance Sports Bra.  One of it benefits is it has a moisture-wicking to helps keep you cool and dry.  It  also has a soft bottom band for comfortable support and a breathable mesh panel .  There is even a convenient key pocket, to hide your keys during your workouts.

Me, fast pace walking in my Jockey sports bra.
  I was selected to try Jockey®’s sports bra  Tech Terry Performance Sports Bra in black.  When I first tried it on, I thought it was a little to tight, but at least it kept everything in its place.  I would recommend make sure you order a size larger, they seem to run small.   Other than that, I cannot imagine running anywhere with out my Jockey Tech Terry Performance Sports Bra.  It soaked up all my sweat and left me feeling dry and cool.

After you where your sports bra, you have to wash it, but washing it can be damaging to the fabric.   If you wash your sports bra in regular liquid softeners that use oils to soften it can harms the bra’s moisture wicking ability.  I use Purex Crystals, they are 92% natural crystals that infuse long-lasting freshness into the fabric fibers of clothing – without harming garments (like liquid softener products that use oils to soften).

Additionally, Purex Crystals work to create a continuous long-lasting freshness, eliminating that all-too-common odor that gets embedded in workout clothing.  I also love the smell of their new Purex Crystals tropical splash scent; it leaves my clothes smelling like tropical bliss for weeks .  Purex Crystals come with a measuring cup and you add the crystals directly to the drum at the begining of the cycle so you don't have to wait until you hear the rinse cycle (see direction).  It is so easy to do, Little Man can help me.

Now what you have been waiting for...
The Giveaway is for:

  • One Tech Terry Performance Sports Bra provided by Jockey®’s
  • One Full-sized bottle of Purex Crystals provided by Purex 

Here is how to enter:

  CLOSED on 01/26/2012

It's a New year and I am losing weight...

So it's a new year, 2012, and now it is finally time for me to lose weight.  I know it's such a cliche to say you want to lose weight at the begining of a new year.  I am not making a "new years resolution", that is just not for me.  I guess it is just having a blog with photographs makes it really hard to not see the weight creeping up on me.

If there is anyone out there that would like to be my cyber-walking-buddy? 
This is me 6 months ago trying to workout with Little Man.
I have gained some weight since then.
It is a little sad when your "fat" jeans are getting too tight to button.  I just don't have the heart to ask my hubby if we can budget in a shopping spree for me to get some new clothes that fit, because I cannot seem to control myself when it come to food.  It is so embarrassing to admit.

Now this is a photo taken of me yesterday.  Yes, my work out clothes are a little tight too, but I have to start somewhere.   

I wish I knew someone that lived close to where I live and was in the same situation as me.  I would love to have a friend that could keep me accountable; but since we live in the country, I am going to use this blogs to hold myself accountable. ( my other blog is: http://nowamomof3.blogspot.com/)

What is one way you make sure you get a workout everyday?

I just check my BMI (body Mass Index) today.  I was shocked to find out that I am officially obese.  I have gained 7 lbs since I started this blog.  I am not saying it is the blogs fault.  I have not been motivated at all.  I am also addicted to sweets and cola.

My BMI is 30 and if you have a BMI of 30 or over you are no longer overweight, but you are now officially obese.  How did this happen?  I am not sure, but I think I have come to the realization that I am an emotional eater.  I notice that my other blog is all about food.  I did not set out for it to be, but that is what happen.  I have a love/hate relationship with food.  I love to eat it and hate what it does to my body.  You can not have a BMI of 30 and not have issues with food.

So now what do I do now?  Where do I go from here?  I know that I cannot do it on will power alone.  I am really going to think about this, and see what solution I can come up with.  To be continued...

Cannot lose weight

I feel like a failure, I cannot seem to lose weight.  That is why I have not posted in many months.  I don't know what to say.  I am thinking about taking this blog down.  I don't know.....

How to work out with a baby?

Here is a video of me trying to work out with my baby.  It is not as easy as they make it out to be, expecially when you have a busy baby.  Why are all the babies in the mom and me work out videos so good?  I do not know how the trainer get the baby to just sit there and do whatever the trainer wants them to do.  They need to make a mommy and baby workout video for the busy baby that does not just want to sit there while mom works out!  Here is my attempt of a sample of what that sort of  video would look like.
