Thursday Thoughts

Invention Convention!!!

This summer I'm calling it the summer of the sports bra run.  Yep that's right.  I'm going to get over my fears of my belly and bare it to the sun.  Here's my problem though.  I'm one of those people who worshipped the sun as a child and now is worried about skin cancer.  I put sunscreen on ALL. THE. TIME.  This summer I'll be doing my workouts during the daytime since I won't be working.  Here's where I need your help...

Get out those thinking caps and thinking of some really creative way to get sunscreen on your back without assistance and without missing any spots.

LOL---I am picturing this---but since I just got back from the beach--my suggestion is to get the spray on sunscreen (I was using 45 SPF) and try to look in a mirror while spraying it. Good Luck!

c'mon people get original.

you're an engineer meredith, you should be great coming up with a contraction for this :)

all i can think of is laying down in a big gloop of sunscreen and rolling around.... which i don't think would be too effective.

I have to admit, my mom once gave me this long stick that had a tub with rollers on the outside that you put sunscreen or lotion in and it was supposed to be used to get your back. However, it was messy and awkward and I got rid of it. It was original, but I wondered if there was anything else out there.
