Product Review - Nike Swift U-Back Sports Bra

Awesome. But restrictive. You can't have it all though right? I'm not a big girl. I'm not a small girl. What I am is just a girl who works out and would like what boobage I do have to not bounce. Those cute, thin strap bras won't cut it during Crossfit or triathlon training. Most of the bras I work out in are fairly compressive. This bra is no different.

Where this bra comes out on top is that the straps are very comfortable and also adjustable. They are padded and soft with some stretch. The back closure is also adjustable, but strong. The hook and eye closures resemble that of a regular bra..."on steroids." While I won't look as cute as I do in the low cut bras I have for the "low impact" days, I do have more control for the high impact days.

The band around the ribcage is tight. It isn't the type of bra you leave on to relax and lounge around. But that's not why you would buy this bra in the first place. Buy this bra if you care about minimizing the bounce of your breasts while being active, but want some measure of adjustable sizing and to squeeze out what bit of comfort is available.

Dear Natural Hair, Let Me Explain...

Sure, if I worked at a place where my brushed out hair was perceived as professional, maybe I could do that. However, my mid-day hair brushing friends and I work at the same place and I get to sit by and watch them deal with their tangles johnny on the spot. I. I have to wait until I get home and can tame the beast of tangles by creating an entirely different beast. Such is my hair.
I’ve learned to love my hair.  After years of trying to hide the curls with relaxers, fancy products, and buns – I have learned. Yes, I’m jealous of people who can ride in a car with the windows down and do nothing more than brush out the wildness. I still get angry when I brake a brush or pull bristles. That does not get in…

Look Better, Feel Better Week 7

anything = sexy?

Here's a picture from the December 16, 2010 WOD from the Crossfit.com main site. It's a pretty picture, nice view. The comments to the picture were interesting. A majority of comments related to how pretty the lady was. Other comments wanted to know about the front view. There were also comments about how the picture was distasteful, unwanted, unnecessary. Some comments stated that lady in the picture wasn't what a "real" woman looked liked. Interesting.

I've heard claims that the Crossfit community, and others as well, is all about leveraging functionality and strength. Muscles are required to be strong. There is not much definition in the back of this girl. That was the root of some comments. She was stereotypically pretty and not Crossfit pretty. I understand. My first reaction to the people raving about the "Strong = Sexy" Life as Rx tee, what you really meant to say was "Anything without a top = sexy." Don't get the two confused b…
