The transformation of me

{June 18, 2012}   A morning walk

So I go walking in my neighborhood. It nothing major just around the block about ten times or thirty minutes which ever I am feeling. Well it seems I have generated some attention on this particular walk. On one side of the block a taxi driver comments “dang girl, you walked around the block that fast!” I guess he doesn’t notice that I am in full power walk mode, who walks slow when they are power walking? So I proceed on around to the other side of the block where there is a funeral home. Well at the very moment that I am taking my walk the funeral home is getting a shipment of caskets and there is an employee out receiving the delivery. Well this isn’t blocking my walk at all but this man decide’s to comment as well “girl, you walked the block THAT fast?” Now when I say full power walking mode I mean exercise gear on, headphones, sneakers, headband, full sweat. I mean I thought it was pretty obvious that I was not on a leisurely stroll. So I picked up the pace and the next time around the block more comments. Next time I go walking in the neighborhood I am carrying a do not disturb sign and hanging it on my back!

Ok so for the month of May I didn’t do so well. I know the reasons why but I won’t give you guys any excuses.I did gain but I didn’t lose either. I exercised a couple times a week but I haven’t been making wise food choices. Normally I would cook different meals for me and the family but I just haven’t been putting in the extra effort. I really want the results but for some reason they won’t just magically appear:( I just have to try and keep my mind focused. There is something that my husband says to me that makes me want to try harder and do my best in everything but I will keep that between us two. I don’t think that he knows how much it motivates me, but it does a lot.

{May 29, 2012}   Workout hair!

Ok, another week gone by and the weekend is here. Not only the weekend but Memorial Day weekend! So I have been working out for a few months now and I have yet to figure out what to do about my hair. I know alot of African American women use there hair as an excuse to not work out but I am not the one. Yes, I still have this dilemma because my husband likes my hair a certain way and I try my best to keep it how he likes it but it is almost impossible. When I workout the first place that I sweat is my head, by the time I am done working out my hair is dripping wet. This makes it hard for me to wear it straight with the hair swooped over my eye(his fav style)

So I would love to go natural but he is not really ready for that yet, and on some levels neither am I. I really need some alternatives that don’t include me wearing a ponytail or even braids daily because my husband will not go for that one. Please leave your comments on what to do. Help me please I need options!!!! I started this blog post on Friday but got side tracked before I could finish hence the references to it being the weekend.
