Old Navy Is My Recommended Activewear Brand for Tall Women

When shopping for activewear, I have three requirements for the fit and quality:

  1. Comfort – Good weight, not too heavy or too thin. Easy to move around in
  2. Security – No slipping or falling. Snug, but not tight. Sits right below the waist, not too low
  3. Performance – Has wicking fabric that dries fast and keeps me cool

Style is a nice to have, but not an absolute need for me because the clothes end up becoming drenched in sweat and dirty anyway :).

Keep reading for the brand that meets these requirements, while offering extended sizes that tall women can wear to get their physical fitness on!

How to Make Delicious Homemade Popcorn in 15 Minutes

DISCLAIMER: This homemade popcorn is healthy and highly addictive!

I used to eat popcorn at the movies, covered in butter and sprinkled with table salt. Sometimes, I’d also eat microwaveable popcorn but I’ve given up using microwaves altogether at home. So, I stopped eating popcorn, not realizing there was a healthy alternative.

Then, I stumbled upon this recipe for homemade popcorn and am so happy I did! It is one of the most nutritious snacks out there – it contains fiber, antioxidants, and whole grains.
