I want to talk a bit about sweat.
As a woman, I feel as though it is seen as nasty to be a sweaty mess. For example, if I were to work out at a gym and be dripping sweat, more so than the men working out there, it’s in my head to believe that people are judging me. I don’t know if this is the case, but due to my brother always bugging me as a child/teen working out some old thoughts/habits stick up there in the old thinker.
Here is a list of things I need to purchase in the next few weeks:
6 sports bras
2 workout capris
3 long running pants
5 sweat towels
WHY, you ask?
-I am the only girl on my basketball team who brings a sweat rag to games. I believe one other gal on my ball hockey team brings one. I must have one at the gym. I can only wear gym clothes once (then they are a must wash) and I don’t do laundry twice a week. I own enough workout capris to go 5 days without washing but the rest needs to be done way too often.
-I sweat through shirts, pants, socks, probably even my shoes. I’ve sweat so much my entire sweat rag is soaked. TMI?
-I look like I’ve showered after ball hockey games… but if you’re standing close enough you can smell that I haven’t 🙂 gotta love the hockey gear.
Being a woman and sweating so much sucks!
Heres the thing that I love about sweating like that
-I know I gave it everything I had.
-I just flushed out a ton of toxins
-The shower I’m about to take it going to be oh so sweetly rewarding lol
I’m a lady but (none of these pics are me)
If I don’t turn into a sweaty mess I don’t feel like I’ve worked out, so I guess I’ll be a sweaty mess forever!
