I don’t know about any of you guys out there but I have struggled for years to find a pair of earbuds that don’t fall out of my ears immediately. I think my ear holes are baby-sized or something…not sure.
Yesterday at the gym I found out that my current headphones were no longer working after I yanked hard on them at one point last week. Something must have jostled loose in there or something. So, off to Target I went tonight to look for a new pair. Apparently I’m the only person who buys non-earbud, headphones anymore because unless you want ginormous ones, it’s earbuds.
I opted to try the Yurbuds because they say that they are developed for women and are smaller. Plus it said “guaranteed to never fall out” so I opted to throw down the $30 and give them a shot. I figured, when they don’t work, I’ll just return them or ask the company for my money back.
I have to say, I was very pleased with them. I needed to use the smaller of the two silicone coverings but once I did the “twist lock” they didn’t fall out at all. Even when I accidentally gave a the cord a tug. I even did a circuit workout after my walk tonight and they stayed put through jumping lunges, squat jumps, and kettlebell swings! See, still in place after a sweaty workout:
Don’t worry, I’m not getting compensated for these buds, they just worked really well for me and I’ve tried many different ear buds that typically fall out within 5 minutes, even when I’m just sitting.
As I mentioned, I went on a 25 minute walk after work today so with a 15 minute walk on my break, I got in a total of 65 minutes of walking today! When I got home from my walk this afternoon, I opted to do Julie’s 6×6 workout but instead of box jumps, I did jumping lunges (6 each leg) and I used a dumbbell instead of a kettlebell because that’s what I had at home. It was a great workout to follow-up my walk!
After that workout, I was starved so I quickly cooked up a pork chop, a microwavable wild/brown rice mix, and veggies. I topped the pork with A1 and the rest with shredded parm.
Now, it’s vacuum time. One of my least favorite chores- yuck! Anyone wanna come do it for me??
Do you struggle with finding earbuds that fit??
What’s your least favorite household chore??
- vacuuming or unloading the dishwasher..I’ll pass!
