Remember how I forgot to pack my deodarant in my gym bag a few days ago and how you thought that was abuse to my students?
Well, a few of you recommended keeping an extra one in my purse or desk drawer. The store I shop at (my mom’s house) didn’t have travel size ones so I picked up a normal sized one to go in my purse and it is working out quite nicely.
Now to find a leash for my mascara because somehow I have lost 3 in the last week. Eyeliner will do for now until I can force myself to go to Walmart (gives me a headache) again. Hey mom, before I go to the store and waste more money do you have any extra mascaras hanging around?
I am hunched over in this picture hoping that I can hide behind my computer so that no one walking by can peak in my window and see that I am taking a picture of myself with deodarant. That would just be awkward.
My eating was ALL off today. This morning I could NOT stop eating. I am pretty sure the large amounts of fiber from 12 peaches and the thick layer of pb coating my stomach kept me way too full for my salad until 2 o’clock. Weird I know. You know what else is weird….
the fact that my salad is packed into a family sized casserole dish. PS don’t get too jealous of my awesome photography skills.
No dishwasher+lazy head girl= using whatever dishes that will allow for 4 lbs of food.
Don’t forget to enter my GIVEAWAY!!!
What brand of deodarant do you use?
-I have only ever used Secret, that is what my mom and sis always used so I never ventured out, am I missing out on anything? I love the pear scented one…obviously, I want to smell like my favorite fruit.
Would you rather never have to do your make-up again or never do you hair again?
-MY HAIR!! I actually enjoy putting on make-up but the thought of doing my hair makes me cringe.
What was the last thing(s) that you had PB with?
-Um, where do I start…..apples, bananas, yogurt and pretzels.

I also forgot to pack my deodorant the other day so now I keep one in my gym locker.
For sure I would never do my hair again – it would be amazing not to have to deal with my lion mane every day :)
Hey, Janae! Just wanted to say that I’ve really enjoyed reading your blog! I just moved back to Spain and because my day starts and ends before yours does, I’ve made reading it a before bedtime ritual! :) Thanks for sharing your experiences with us!
I have used only mens deodorant for the last 5 years. I’m hooked! I think they smell much better than the perfumy/sickly sweet female brands. My favorite is the Aqua Reef Old Spice regular deodorant (not the gel).
I HATE DOING MY HAIR TOO! Headbands save my life :)
I use degree, it works well for me…i feel like I used to use secret and didnt like it very much. i’m also one of those cheapo people that uses deodarant to prevent chafing on her legs…it works really well and saves me $$ from having to buy BodyGlide (I used to buy it religiously when I first started running)
im the same way when it comes to hair vs. makeup…especially now that ive been growing my hair out, im SO lazy. i usually throw some mousse in it, scrunch it up and put it up in a clip…haha. i enjoy doing my makeup!
last thing I had PB with was ANIMAL CRACKERS!!! nomnom!
Kristen @ notsodomesticated
Peanut butter with my toast this morning. And with crackers last night. ;)
This afternoon, I ate about 20.2 pieces of Texas sheet cake. Needless to say, I’ll probably be having a light dinner. ;)
Have a great night, Janae!
I use Toms or crystal stick/ natural stuff. I read some scary stuff about the anitperspirant in the main stream stuff and made the switch. And although I almost never do my hair or makeup, ooops ;), I’d much rather never have to do my hair again. Make up is fun sometimes but taming the mane is a battle and my arms always get tired :D Oh, and that size salad looks normal to me, gotta love the 4 lbs of produce! Have a great day girl!
i use secret too. although all my emergency stashes are dove because those were the trail sizes that were at the clinic where i worked last year. i have one in my all three of my purses, my gym bag, my overnight bag, and another bag that isn’t quite an overnight bag but i use for changes of clothes.
Jessica @ rerunrunning
I’m with Samantha and use men’s deodorant- the fresh scent- for running and working out and secret girl deodorant for daily life… I know high maintenance!
I just put PB on cauliflower yesterday. It was Awesome!
And my hair doing skills are pathetic so I’d go with that…
I use Secret but I think it ‘s time to change. It’s not working as well as it once did. Or it could be due to the heat index down here!! I eat almond butter, in lieu of PB. Sad…I know…. I love it with apples!
The most bizarree dipper tool for peanut butter I’ve used is tortilla chips! Salt overload..
I also use Secret (prefer unscented though…I’m weird). I keep Suave in my gym bag though. Much like you lose mascara, I lose cosmetics that I use in the locker room. So, I’m not allowed to bring anything nice in there. :)
HAIR! I hate doing my hair, but love when it looks pretty. Makeup to me is a little like painting during arts and crafts time. Haha.
I just finished eating a banana that I slathered PB on. It’s become my usual late afternoon snack at work. So good!
Taking pictures with deodorant is totally normal!
I have secret right now but I usually like dove.
Not doing make up or hair is such a hard decision.
I usually never want to do my hair and it takes a LOT longer.
It’s long and I pretty much have an afro (white girl style) so I’d probably go with that.
I last had almond butter… with oats!
Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries
I use Dove! I buy the bulk packs at Costco so I can put a stick in my purse, my bathroom, our other bathroom, my car, my desk… :)
Never do my hair again… I hate, hate, hate doing my hair.
Last thing I had PB with? Nothing except a spoon. I had a big spoonful of it when I got home from work. :)
Clear Dry Idea. NEVER leaves a mark on clothes.
Hair! I hate doing my hair. Which is why it ends up in a wet bun everyday (I work from home). I don’t mind makeup. Makes my eyes look even bluer.
I had peanut butter toast after the gym last night.
The Kidless Kronicles
Wag More, Bark….
I love the secret sport protection. I get B.O with everything else and any other kind leaves bad odor on my workout clothes. Haha! TMI? This stuff works SO well. But the Secret Clinical Protections don’t work. Only the sport one. My sweat is picky, I guess.
Last thing I had peanut butter on was my oatmeal, of course!
Sierra @ Posh Meets Pavement
I use Powerstripe, its pink and black and it works like a champion. I actually bring it from the states or order it on Drugstore.com and have it delivered to South Africa, because I refuse to smell or be sweaty if avoidable. All the deodorants here are that weird liquid with a roller ball and that makes me feel wet in my armpits and I hate it.
Dry shampoo has changed my life. I do my hair very seldom. Less that I care to admit.
I use Dove, it’s pretty great I think.
I would LOVE to never have to wear makeup but at 26 I still get break outs! Blegh! And I haven’t had peanut butter in a long time, I may need to incorporate it into tomorrow’s breakfast :)
Elizabeth @ reads recipes runs
I switch deodorants all the time. If I stick with one too long I start having allergic reactions to them. Right now I am rotating between an all-natural one from the Body Shop which I LOVE, and Degree for when I know I am going to stink.
OMG I would LOVE to never have to do my hair again. I suck at it and 99.99% of the time it’s in a pony tail with a side part. This has been happening since I was 17…
I ran out of deo on my trip to France and bought some over there. I actually am still using it, and going to be sad when it runs out because I have total smell association with it and that trip.
PB banana sandwich, but I already had just my finger in the pb jar before finishing the sandwich that also contained pb…….?!?
Laura @ LauraLikesDesign
That is brilliant to keep a spare in your purse! I really need to do that because I always forget! I also always forget to bring socks or sports bras to the gym–I try to keep extras in my car but sometimes forget.
I hate doing my hair but like doing my makeup. I think the reason for this is because 1. my arms get tired doing my hair and 2. it never seems to turn out when I’m in a hurry!
I had toast with PB this morning!
Vanessa @ Gourmet Runner
I always switch up deodorants. I can never seem to pick one and stick with it!
I would never do my hair again. Actually, I hardly ever do my hair now, but my makeup only takes 3 minutes and I’m pretty ok with spending that time each day.
Oh! And I had PB at lunch on rice cakes…delicious!
'Dee @ 'Dee's Garret
Definitely a “Secret” gal here! I’ve been using it since I was old enough to use deodorant. Although I’ve switched to the ‘ultra’ kind (can’t think of the real name).
I would sooo much rather not ever have to do my hair again. Makeup, however, is fun!
Last thing I ate PB on? A toasted whole-grain English Muffin. I love PB! Unfortunately, my husband LOATHES it. Seriously. He hates even sitting next to me when I eat it. Something about a rapidly escalating childhood illness shortly after eating a PB&J :-) Poor guy. How awful must it be to go through life hating peanut butter?
Rosa - Fitness, Food, Fulfilled
I always have deodorant in my desk drawer at work because there have been too many times where I’ve forgotten to put it on in the morning just to realize it when I’m in the office. Nasty! I love Degree. I sweat too easily and it always turns it up!
I really hate doing my hair. I can’t even do a ponytail well because I always end up with a shark fin.
Luv What You Do
Do you remember TEEN SPIRIT deoterant??? You might be too young for this but it came out when I was in elementary school and it was the ‘popular’ thing to do to carry it around in our purses (that only stored candy otherwise). SOO Ridiculous and a hilarous memory…can’t believe I am actually admitting to this.
I would be thrilled if I never ever had to style my hair again! My hair does not dry nice so its a matter or blow drying it and using the flat iron!
Emily @ Perfection Isn't Happy
I use Secret too! I’ve tried other kinds, but it seems to work the best. I think I’d rather never have to do my make-up again. I like doing my hair, but doing my make-up takes a lot of time.
chelsey @ clean eating chelsey
You’re so funny – and I feel like I haven’t been commenting lately but I’m still here! :)
I like Secret, but recently I’ve been loving Degree!
I love Secret as well! Dove is pretty good too–but I am not too picky. Hah!
I don’t love PB….but I am ALL about the almond butter–MMMM mmm :)
i’m with you girl! I’d rather do my makeup any day!
Lindsay @ Lindsay's List
I’ve recently found the Secret Clinical Strength…I don’t know if it was the hormones from being pregnant or what, but this girl can sweat…
sexy, I know.
i love your salad container! i eat my salads from a mixing bowl – like the size you would use to mix up a cake mix. yup!
i ate pb on apple today – one of my top FIVE (THREE?!) fave snacks!
i love doing make-up, hate doing my hair. so my idea of hair maintenance is to throw on a hairband!
i think i have secret??? to be honest, i just look for the packaging that looks familiar!
janae, your blog just makes me laugh. thank you!
I have to wear unscented deodorant, because I have sensitive pits! I would rather never have to do my hair or make-up ever. BOYS DON’T HAVE TO!!! And I had peanut butter on toast with bananas!
Is it wrong to eat just plain peanut butter from the spoon? That just goodness, I think.
Gracie (complicated day)
Good ol’ Suave works for me, and it’s cheap too!
Brittany @ A Spoonful of Peanut Butter
I’m pretty sure Walmart gives everyone a headache. I NEVER go to Walmart for that reason. eesh!!
&if I find you a leash for your mascara, I’ll send it to you asap. I would hate for you to have to waste money on more mascara (because its so expensive!).
I use Degree Clinical Protection deoderant. Does it work? ehh…I guess but not for those of us who sweat a butt ton (me). :P
I use dove. Love it.
HAIR – I have the type of hair I have to either straighten or use a diffuser it takes me soooooooo much time, hence my love of ponytails.
…on a spoon. I love just eating pb out of the jar
i use axe phoenix men’s deoderant. i think men’s deoderant works so much better. i have secret in summer berry (i think thats the name?) that i use when i wanna smell pretty :)
i’d rather never have to do my hair OR my makeup. i absolutely loathe getting ready! so not girly of me, i know.
i’ve tried degree, but always go back to secret. it smells the best, and helps ward off my crazy sweat buckets.
would rather not do make-up! i rarely do my hair anyways, and i need make-up (terrible skin), so to leave the house w/o doing it would be lovely.
this morning w/ my banana oats…go to breakfast!
I have always used Secret and have never ventured out either.
I wish I never had to do my make up again.
I just made PB and chocolate chip stuffed apples for a snack. I posted the recipe on my blog.
Blah! Never do my hair again!!! I hate doing my hair
I use degree clinical strength (bc I sweat that much) and regular degree for breakthrough sweat…
Holly @ Pink Runner
Dove is the only deodorant that doesn’t make me break out in hives!
Lauren @ What Lauren Likes
I just had pb on whole wheat with some dried figs :) sooo good!
I blame you, now I’m craving pb and pretzels…
My twins (5 yrs old) talked me into laying down with them this afternoon. Of course I fell asleep and they watched cartoons…anyway, I had a dream that I watched you drop your dinner to save a falling jar of peanut butter. I’ve only ever read your blog and you’ve invaded my brain! hahaha
BTW would you drop your dinner plate to catch a jar of peanut butter?
Right now I’m alternating between Dove and Degree. I like Secret too though. I’m cheap, so I usually get what’s on sale. :)
I absolutely hate doing my hair. That’s why it’s piled on top of my head. every.single.day.
Last thing I had pb with was a piece of wheat bread for a quick snack. It was gone in 2.1 seconds. :D
I use clinical strength Secret and I still seat like a man. At least it prevents me from smelling like one (at least I hope it does).
I would rather never have to do my hair again. For it to look decent I have to blow it dry and straighten it every day. Blow drying my hair makes me sweat – see above.
PB&J – I’ve been eating it for brreakfast every day.
I don’t use deodorant….
I used prescription strength anti-persperant. I love it
I will continue to do my makeup and hair for the rest of my life so long as I don’t have to take off my makeup! I’m not a big fan of doing my hair or makeup, but I can tolerate it, I just cannot stand taking off my makeup. Especially mascara and eyeliner.
And I just finished eating PB straight out of the jar.
Sabrina @ Radioactive Runner
HAHAHA oh my goodness.. you are so funny. I love your comment about hunching over so no one catches you taking a picture of your deoderant.
The idea of never having to do my hair again is too exciting to fathom! I am addicted to peanut butter- just had some with overnight oats for breakfast and am now sitting at work and thanking myself for making the executive decision to pack peanut butter to have with my carrot sticks during lunch! :)
Cait's a Runnerchick
haha….they should have like little mini-me deodorants that come attached to gym bags. ‘use in case of emergency’ type things. :)
i’m kinda picky with my deodorant, see i like the gel rolly ones, and i like Ban. :P
I could definitely go without doing my hair ever again- it drives me insane!
But I LOVE putting make-up on. I find it therapeutic!
Shameful truth… the last thing I had PB with was…potato chips. ahahaha. Bacon flavoured chips dipped in peanut butter… oh my. Sometimes my genius frightens even me.
Monika @ Monika's Miles
Great plan with the deodorant. I’m sure your students appreciate that the most :P A secret I always use when I’m too lazy to wash my hair or do it up properly is a braid and a headband. It’s quick, easy, and the headband covers up that greasy look. I haven’t had PB in so long! I’ve been stuck on Nutella and Almond butter lately. Have you ever had PB on smores though? Magical.
I use Dove Deoderant with Cashmere scent. I used to be a Secret girl, but switched when I had a coupon one time and I’ve never gone back. I would rather have someone do my hair everyday then have to do it myself. The blow drying process and then styling takes time, plus if I had someone do it for me(stylist) then I woudn’t have bad hair days. The last thing I had PB with was on a banana this morning.
This post is hilarious- I just loved it! :D I love that you ‘shop’ at your Mom’s house- that is awesome…gotta love Moms…they are the BEST!
I keep deodorant at my desk too…and I’m so not ashamed to use it in front of my co-workers..ha! I just tell them they are LUCKY that I use deodorant for them…lol!! JK :D
