I bought a fanny pack.
I wish I could say I was joking.
I even have to admit that I don’t regret the purchase!
Let me back up a bit.
You know I’ve been on a journey to better health and recently I’ve started running. I can’t say I love it, but I can’t say I hate it either! It’s not easy, but I miss it on my rest days. I found an arm band and have been using that to hold my phone, and while it’s not my favorite, I was fine with it.
Until I noticed that it is starting to rub against my workout shirts.
So I started my search.
And by that I mean, I sorted by lowest price on Amazon!
I really wanted a Flip Belt, but they don’t come in my size.
Nothing against Flip Belt, it’s just not easy at all to find fitness gear for a “plus” sized woman. It involves a lot of measuring and guessing and then a quick prayer that it will actually fit and work!
I found a belt, it was nice and compact, and if my measurements were correct, it would span my waist. And, it would hold my iPhone.
The belt looks good, right? Not obtrusive at all. But, I still can’t figure out what the model is storing in hers. I mean, if you are going to show a picture of the product being used, shouldn’t it actually be in use? I mean, would it be a shame to show products doing what they are supposed to, but whatevs!
The picture shows that it holds the phone and keys… and it claims to be able to hold more – but my phone is all that really mattered, as my running shorts have a pocket for my keys, I just need to be able to have my headphones in while I’m pounding the pavement – and for the low price of $9.99, I clicked “order”.
I’ve used it twice and pretty much love it. It is an elastic band attached to the yellow banana pack, but it is able to be tightened up as the elastic stretches… or as my waist shrinks!
But every morning, when I’ve snapped this on, I’ve giggled, cause, really, it’s nothing more than an elastic fanny pack.
And I’m rocking it better than anyone! Well, anyone except…
The Rock. He is totally rocking the fanny pack.
