I need to be on my best behavior this week. We have our company Christmas party on Friday afternoon. The day after the party last year, I might have honestly had the worst hangover of my life. So I need to make extra sure that I am healthy the rest of the week, because who knows what will happen on Friday. I’ll try to behave though!
My best behavior entails going to the gym and eating a real meal at home. I did 20 minutes on the Arc Trainer and then a NRLFW workout which consisted of:
1. Front squat/push press, 20 lbs, 2 sets of 10
2. Step up, 2 sets of 10, each leg
3. Dumbbell one-point row, 20lbs, 2 sets of 10 (I keep falling over doing this one)
4. Static lunge, rear foot elevated, 20 lbs, 2 sets of 10 each leg
5. pushups on my knees, 2 sets of 10
6. plank, 60 seconds, 2 sets
7. oblique twist with a 10 lb medicine ball, 2 sets of 30
For my real meal, I made a variation of Jenna’s Enchiladas.
Instead of chicken, I filled them with refried beans and spinach and I used green enchilada sauce instead of red.
And some Publix low-fat frozen yogurt for dessert. This is actually a pretty small container that it’s in. This yogurt isn’t too bad, calorie-wise, but it’s so hard for me to stick with the 1/2 cup serving size. I can easily eat 2 cups of it. I just sort of put it in the back of the freezer in the hopes that I’ll be too lazy to get it out.
That’s my little ice cream spoon in there. And yes, I did register for real plates and bowls!
So, guess what I am doing now?
If you guessed taking unflattering pictures of myself in the mirror, you’re only half right. I decided to dye my hair. I was talking to my sister last night and quizzing her on her hair routine. She has the same curly hair that I do but hers always looks so much better. Mine always gets so flat on top. I realized, however, that part of the reason that it looks flat is because the top is darker. I got highlights maybe 6 months ago and while roots on curly hair aren’t as noticeable, it’s still darker on the top which kind of makes the flatness more noticeable. I figured I’d just even it out. I got a pretty dark brown, so we’ll see how it turns out. According to my sister, by the way, I need to use three different hair products and flip my hair to the side while it’s drying. How is she 12 years younger than me and has to school me on beauty stuff? Seriously, I have asked her plenty of makeup questions too. I think I missed the girly gene.
Do you dye your own hair? Get highlights in a salon? Never done anything to it?
