Someone pointed out to me the other day (based on workout pictures I share) that I don’t sweat. Ummm…. hello! I totally sweat! That being said – I hate being sweaty – there are few things that annoy me as much as that bead of sweat that somehow is always falling off of my nose. Ugh!
How anyone could think that I don’t sweat (or insinuate that I’m not working out hard enough because the pictures I post are not all sweaty) is just plain wrong. What’s the deal then? Why aren’t my pictures all sweaty? why do I look the same both before and after a workout?
Seriously people – do I REALLY have to be talking about this?
- I don’t wear make-up when I workout, so there is none to slide off of my face. Hence – same look both before and after my workout. I have considered wearing make-up so that I would be more photogenic, but it slides right off of my face… because I sweat!
- I wear a Sweaty Band Headband – Sweaty Bands are WONDERFUL, and sop up more head sweat than you can imagine. These headbands absolutely one of my favorite purchases since I started working out. They have majorly cut down the amount of sweat rolling down my brow. I currently have two sweaty bands, but my collection will absolutely be growing.
- I use a REI Co-op Multi Towel when I’m on the treadmill to wipe my face during, and just after a workout. This generally means no glistening beads of sweat for post-run pictures.
- Have you ever really tried to take pictures with your phone, exhausted, and in poor lighting, of sweat? It takes some serious effort to get a good sweaty picture.
So in conclusion – YES! I sweat. I sweat a lot. I don’t enjoy it, so I wipe it away.
