The first step in creating this lazy girl mask is admitting that You are not exercising.
Once you have dealt with the emotional fall-out of this reality, (don’t waste too much time on it) you can move on to step two:
Sacrificing a pair of perfectly good yoga pants.
I know, I know– I know what you paid, but let’s be honest, are you using them? There’s a PANDEMIC outside your front door honey..now is not the time to lie to yourself about starting that work-out video on Monday, ok?
Stuff your head as far as it will go into the leg of those pants just to get an idea of how tight they are.
Yes-my husband (and my dog) thought it was one heck of a look.. HAHAHAAHAHAAA!!!!
This leg gonna be tight on your head girl!! and you’ll have to cut a decent section off the lower and upper sections. Do NOT cut the pant while it is on your head unless you are into surprise hair-dos!
Once you have achieved an acceptable level of discomfort, 😉 position your pant on your face, locate a good spot and then cut a small hole in the back to insert your ponytail. The ponytail is what keeps your mask from slipping-ironically making the lazy girl mask great for work outs.. 🤔
I guess you could cut holes for your ears if you don’t have a ponytail, or heck- just wait a few weeks until your hair grows long enough..it’s not like anyone’s going to the hairdresser right?
The cool thing about this mask is its versatility.
Let’s say the doorbell rings and it’s the UPS guy wanting a signature for the 4 bottles of bourbon you ordered for your quarantine survival kit. Slip your mask on for full protection, and if you go out the door and realize that the UPS man is actually your man (who got one of the 100,000 UPS jobs without you knowing) you can easily slide the mask right back down to your neck where it can conveniently serve the dual function of hiding neck wrinkles and popping veins while you lecture him about the importance of honesty in a relationship.
If you are heading into cootie-ville, like the grocery store because you simply can’t live without fresh parsley, you can take a piece (or two) of folded paper towel and slip between your mask and face for added protection.
(Better yet, just don’t go to the grocery store.)
Wash your lazy girl, pant-face-mask regularly, as you would if you had actually worn it to the gym.
