Gym Hair Don’t Care

One of the things that keeps me motivated at the gym, is fun workout clothes. For years now, one phrase has been my favorite, Gym Hair Don’t Care. Seriously my hair is a disaster after the gym. So when I first read the quote, it was as if someone was thinking of me when they wrote…
