COMING SOON! (2/1/2015)
Hey all this website is under construction. If you haven’t noticed my URL has changed to www.asimplefitlife.com and so have all of my social media accounts, next up? A blog makeover! Please excuse the incongruence during this change.
I haven’t been able to run in about 2 months, and before that hiatus I wasn’t able to run much with the cold weather and 2 little girls. This Sunday however I have the Surgeons approval to start up again, and I get to do so with a fun new headband!
I won’t lie I like new gear and often its how I reward myself for various accomplishments. So when I knew I would need a little motivation during my time off I contacted boulder band and they not only sent me a headband to review they sent me one to give away!
So lets get right to it, I apparently have the weirdest shaped head in the world, headbands just don’t stay on. I thought I had found a brand, but after about my 4th run in it, I lost it during a run
guess not. I’m happy to say that if I pull this boulder band on to my forehead a little bit, it doesn’t budge! I’ve done tons of PiYo in it and it hasn’t moved at all! Check out this little video of some PiYo moves
(1. I’m super proud becuae I couldn’t do these moves when I started the program and 2. Ignore the crying babies.)
When it comes down to it, its a fairly straight forward design but I think the materials they use are what makes it quality, plus they have 4 sizes, which is probably the biggest reason they stay. Not to mention “Our bands are made right here in our small Colorado hometown by an incredible team of dedicated professionals committed to producing the highest quality product possible.”
how do you beat that? I won’t lie, the prices seemed a bit high to me at first but if they stay on your head its worth it because your not wasting money on replacing headbands that fall off.
Want to win one? I’m giving away this pretty rainbow cheveron print in size s/m!

For the last year or so we have been taking steps towards simplicity. For some its a semi-fast process… not for us, its been little by little changing habits, purging stuff room by room and fighting the need to buy more. It’s amazing to me how things creep back into the house under the guise of ‘good things.’ The most recent example of this is books.
I’ve realized that I’m NEVER going to read all the fiction books I’ve acquired. So I decided to purge (again) my book collection down to my 1 favorite collection that I can read over and over. Just removing fiction book equaled around 30 books out of the house, next I’m going to tackle my cook book collection.
At the same time I was purgeing I created a list of books I needed to buy….umm WHAT?? How does that even make sense?
So after a few days of…justifying that they were personal development or Bible Study books and then moving on to the Nook vs physical book argument (full price vs clutter.) I finally checked the library to see if they had the books on my list. They did, of course. So now instead of adding to my collection I’m going to check them out, and read them. Then if its one I need to mark up and re-read I MIGHT buy it, used. But mostly I’m just going to keep a note book going so I can look back at that.
So there you have it, I’ve hit two things I’m working on this year, less clutter and less money spent.
What simple steps are you taking?
