Review Wednesday: Sally Hansen’s Airbrush Legs

Sometime back I bought Sally Hansen’s Airbrush Legs. For whatever reason I didn’t try out the product immediately.

Lucky for you, my dear readers, I decided to put this leg makeup through some stress tests via GFG!

This stuff works. It looks natural and it looks good and I look tanned.

The instructions tell you to spray into your hands and rub into your legs and feet. I spray it right on my legs and rub it in like lotion. The instructions also say to let it set for 60 seconds before dressing. I always wait a little longer.

Friends and co-workers were impressed at how great it looked.

I was impressed with the fact that it really didn’t rub off. Not in my clothes or my sheets. It did rub off a little on the inside of my ankle socks while working out, but nothing that didn’t wash out.

The product also claims to be water resistant, which I believe is true. The makeup wouldn’t come off while in the shower until I rubbed my legs with soap and water.

I also tried this product while at the pool in Vegas recently. I was armed with a dark colored … Continue reading

Have mat, will travel

I stole that headline from a friend. But I love it. So I had to use it.

I don’t believe I announced to my readers about my trip to Vegas this weekend. Though between my Facebook friends and fellow Challengers and my mom I think I got my readers covered.

Curt and I have made it a tradition to come to Vegas for the first weekend of March Madness. Our friends Jen and Dave have joined us for the past three years.

I decided for this long weekend that I would eat and drink whatever I wanted and tomorrow I would get back to my healthy lifestyle.

(Next week is going to present some major challenges with a planned co-worker lunch and two evening farewell drink and food fests for my boss who is about to retire.)

I hit the gym every morning this weekend, doing cardio and focusing on the push-up challenge. Damn, my shoulders, arms and upper abs are sore!

I also made sure to get my greens pretty regularly as well.

Getting greens in was actually a lot easier than I thought it would be.

I have done well with my water intake. Not every meal … Continue reading

Vegas, baby!

For me Vegas means a lot of drinking and a lot of eating with just a little gambling (mostly penny slots as I don’t like to lose my money).

Curt and I head to Vegas on Thursday night. Our friends Jen and Dave will join us Friday morning.

Jen and I were talking about trying to get a few workouts in while on our  fun-filled long weekend of eating, drinking, gambling, NCAA tourney watching, Mystere watching, pool lounging good time.

So Jen decided to do a little research. She went to Google and typed in “best place to exercise in vegas.” The first hit she got was How to Avoid Exercise in Vegas. I decided to search for the same thing she did and I came upon the same first hit. The thing is, do we really need information on how to avoid exercise in Vegas? I am sure we are already clearly aware how to avoid exercise in Vegas or anywhere on vacation or really anytime in life.

The hotel that the four of us are staying at has a gym. But it is expensive. So we may have to come up with our own workout … Continue reading

Eating, drinking, exercising

I have come to the realization lately that I need to change my eating habits. I haven’t been doing a great job. I am just sucking when it comes to willpower.

I usually do OK in the exercise area. This week I have already worked out five times: yoga; spin; spin; yoga; spin. But it’s the caloric intake I need to get some control over.

I have been eating a little better this week. And without even making a conscious goal I have not had any alcohol during the week this week. I am trying to keep alcohol consumption to the weekends.

I do need to lose a few pounds to get back to my goal weight, which has been something I have been needing to get back to for some time now.

Next weekend Curt and I are going to Vegas and I do plan to eat and drink whatever I want. But once I return I need to get back on track and lose some weight.
