My project for the summer is to get fit. Too long have I sat on the couch and made excuses and I am staring down the barrel of a significant birthday (21 since you ask sweeties) and so needs must and all that. I've enlisted a personal trainer as I am sadly lacking in any motivation when left to my own devices.
My dilemma is well, the sweat. The straggly hair. The chipping of nail varnish. The lycra darlings, the lycra. Must one? When your style icon is Alexis Carrington then the notion of getting sweaty is Not Good.
In Dynasty, I remember seeing her in the Carrington gym and she looked magnificent. But if I attempt the same look I fear people will point and laugh. It involved an electric blue leotard.
I look for hints in the following: how to keep your hair off your face when running. Regular tying back of hair doesn't work in the face of wind and sweat. What's the best anti-perspirant? I don't mind sweating as needs must and it shows I am working hard but I'd like to feel I am doing my best on the sweaty front. How can I keep my face from taking half an hour to return to its normal hue. Beetroot red is not becoming.
Any advice is welcome and I apologise for the overuse of the word 'sweat' in this post. It won't happen again.
