A Giant burn

I pride myself in being pretty low maintenance when it comes to my appearance. I can pretty comfortably get ready in 35 minutes if I shower and 15 if I don’t. Until now.

It all started with the Giants game last Saturday (see the pretty pictures below).

They were free tickets Jason got through work on the Club Level. (Which, side note, I have now decided is the only way to do a baseball game. ) The sun was shining, the birds were chirping (potentially), and the Giants won 2-1. A great day, right?

Let me give you some more background. That morning, as I was getting stuff together for the game, I asked Jason, “If I bring my fleece and my black, puffy coat do you think that will be enough?” That’s, count ’em, two coats. Because I’m ALWAYS cold in San Francisco! Because it’s ALWAYS cold! ALWAYS!!

Except for last Saturday. That’s why I fried. I’m talking lobster, cherry, candy apple red fried my arms. Now I have the most ridiculous tan lines that will probably still be there one month from now when I’m walking down the aisle at Steph and Shawn’s wedding in a strapless dress.

So I decided to try and bring some color to my pasty chest, in addition to soothing my arms. Hence my now high maintenance moisturizing routine:
  • Mary Kay TimeWise Age-Fighting Moisturizer for my face
  • Eucerine Plus Intense Repair Body Creme for my Eczema prone legs
  • Aveeno Intense Relief Repair Creme for my burnt arms
  • Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer for my chest

Moisturizing aside, you may be asking yourself, “What does this have to do with working out?” Imagine laying on your burnt arms in a 105 degree room. That’s right. I skipped yoga this week. And I’m going through withdrawls!!! Three exclamation marks worth of withdrawls! ELSHA – Go try it! Try it tomorrow! And blog about it so I can live vicariously through you!
