First, a product I love:

You know I swim all the time now, and the Pool Chemicals + the Blow Dryer + the Flat Iron + the Maybe She’s Born With It = Hair Damage.  My hair is baby fine, so too much product leaves me looking like a greaseball, but lord knows I need conditioner. 


In the past, I have used Infusium’s leave in conditioner to combat my pool hair, but I wanted to try something new, so I picked up the Nexxus Humectress Luxe leave in conditioner and am IN LOVE.

I haven’t had hair this soft since the first time I colored it (i.e. sophomore year in high school–orange–accidentally–fortunately, it was a rinse.)  This leaves me shiny–shimmering even–and doesn’t weigh down my hair.  Also, it works with my washing routine.  I like to wash my hair every other day, and normally with a Leave-In I have to wash daily to keep from looking greasy.  This wears very well and does a good job keeping me tangle free.  Just to add to the excellence, I can’t smell a fragrance in it.  I recommend.

Speaking of swimming, I am getting nearer to my goal of 30 minutes of Crawl time.  Now, my 45 minute workout is about 60/40 Crawl/Other, and I am strong enough to go for long distances Crawling without stopping.  I am also swimming about half my workouts in naked feet.

Thor starts school next week, so I am changing up my schedule from 45 minutes in the pool MWF, to 60 minutes in the pool TTH.  I think I might be able to do 75 minutes if I can get my booty out of bed early enough.  MWF, I’ll be walking the boy to school, and might start running a bit.  Might.  I’m not making any kinds of promises to myself there because I hate running.  If B decides to join the gym with me, I will probably start swimming on Saturdays, too.

Today, it felt so good to be in the water that I didn’t want to get out.
