Workout Day 3

Day three got postponed.  My husband was called into work early.  That means we'll have to make it up tonight.  This could cause a major problem because I was hoping to workout Friday morning before my hair appointment.  But if I'm up late making up Day3, I don't know if I'll be able to get up early to tackle Day 4.

I have to be cute for my Mother on Mother's Day, right?

Anyway...I have the body of an elderly person.  I hurt ALL OVER.  I know this will end in a couple of weeks, but it is making it hard to want to continue.  OMG!  I could barely walk down the stairs.  I thought I was going to fall down.

I Did It

I'm sure many thought I wouldn't begin the exercise program.  I know I thought I wouldn't.  Turns out that Hubby gets mean when I promise to exercise with him, then bail.

So...he forced me to the basement and I did...something.  I couldn't really complete a pushup and I was so mad at him that I didn't crack a smile.

We did P90x arms and back today...lots of faux pushups and pullups on my part.

I was in a strange place mentally.

I hope to be better tomorow.

I should add that we also did Insanity's ab workout.  That's some CRAZINESS!  OMG!

Sh*t Is Getting Real

The picture above is my WORKOUT SCHEDULE!!

The Husband is way too excited that I have to join him in the basement.  He has already created a schedule for us to start on Monday.

I really don't want to do it, but my weight has gotten out of control.  I am 5'3.  My ideal weight at this time is 125lbs.  However, I can't get to it.  The last time I worked out with the Hubby. I went from 130lbs to 132lbs.  I was toned and fit in the clothes I wore when I was actually 125lbs, but the scale would not go anywhere near that coveted number.

So lets talk about today. Whoo!  This is hard to write out.  I am 140lbs right now.  That is the heaviest I have been in my life.  I am 30+ years old and the pounds don't melt off as easily as before.  It is hot outside and honey, my thighs are rubbing together.  If it was winter time, I would ignore it.  But the heat and the kissing thighs?  Well, that ain't working out.

I had really fallen in love with my straight hair. I know it sounds silly and superficial to be so upset about this.  I sweat..A my hair, so I won't be able to rock my bob the way it should be. LOL! We'll see what I'm able to make of it.  I don't use a flat iron when I do my own hair.

I've scoured YouTube and thanks to Naptural85, I think I have a way to work the curlformers to stretch/straighten/control my hair.  I don't plan on rocking the spiral curls because I can't see how they will work at this length.  Also, I am 100% relaxer free this time.  I don't know how much shrinkage I'll be dealing with.

But ultimately, Whatever!  I have to get these ten pounds off of me.  My thighs don't like each other that much!!!  PLUS, I can't buy anymore damn clothes.

What Did I Do?

I love my new haircut, but seriously, what did I do to myself?  I tried on a dress from last Spring and it is obvious that I have gained ten pounds. OMG!  I have to workout for REAL, but this shorter hair is going to be a problem.

I have a week-and-a-half left until I have to begin.  I'm enjoying my hair's cuteness and giving myself enough time to get the hell over it.  I have to get these ham hocks off my backside.

I probably should have gotten a cut that wouldn't have left the back so short, but I can't change what happened.

I know for the last six months I've been saying, I'm going to get back in the basement and put in work.  But after I put on that sassy dress and it barely made it over my rump-a-dump, I have got to DO SOMETHING.

So, I'll be back in a week-in-a-half, crying about my jacked up hair.  But hopefully in three months, it won't matter because I'll be so damn body beautiful.  LOL!

Hair Gods, please show my relaxer-free hair some mercy!!!

100% Relaxer Free

Uhm...I just went ahead and cut my hair.  I am 100% relaxer free, after 23 months of transitioning.  I likely will not be a curly girl.  I am loving the press-n-curl at the moment.

The back is shorter than the front.  I am using pin curls to maintain it, but the picture above is fresh out the shop.  We will see how long it holds up.  I'm actually a bit nervous.  Ya'll know I can only afford to go to the shop every three weeks...if at all. LOL!

My fly-aways are out of control. I will have to tell the new shop that the Denman ain't working for me. Back to the wide-toothed comb!!!

Almost 2 years

In May, it will be two years since my last perm.  Holy Crap!  I am no longer caring for my hair myself and I am getting it pressed.  I just don't like the kinky look on me.  However, I have reached a point where I may have to go back to it because I am growing out of my clothes (I'm not exercising right now. It makes me sweat).

Here is a look at my hair right now. It is nearly arm pit length.  I'm suddenly obsessed with length.  Normally when I get that way, I cut it.  I was planning to get it cut into a bob, but my mother just visited and discouraged it.  My Husband, who is very supportive, even said he thinks I should wait a little longer before getting a cut.  Deep down inside he believes I'll start exercising with him again and it will be harder for me to make a ponytail with a bob.

I know you are thinking, "Why in the heck did she choose these pictures?"  They best show my hair.  I was wine tasting with my Mother and Aunt.  I, of course, was acting a fool and the only pictures that show my hair, also show me doing something silly.

I haven't been wrapping my hair at night.  I've been pin-curling and shockingly, it is far easier and far more comfortable for me.  However, I do end up with the bends you see in the pics.
