    I stayed hungry all day even though I kept eating. I weighed myself this morning and promised myself that it's the last day I would weigh that much.

    I ate sensibly today. I ran the stairs at work a couple of times. I did wall push ups during my bathroom breaks. I was extra busy at work so I didn't get my walk in. But I came home and rode my bike for 45 minutes.

    I start my triathlon training on Saturday. I'm looking forward to it. This training should get me in shape.

    :lol: Good deal, lady! I'm impressed!

    Health/Fitness
    Today was cardio, so DS#1 and I sprinted-walked-jogged-walked-sprinted-walked-jogged-walked-etc. for 20 minutes. Then we played basketball (H-O-R-S-E) until DS#2 needed attention. (I got an "H" and he didn't get anything, and he was very proud of that. :smile:)​

    Hair
    I've had my hair in 10 twists all week. I can't believe it, but I've worn my wavy bob wig on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and today (Thursday). But tonight is an inaugural meeting of my city's Women Rocking Naturals meetup. I just couldn't see myself showing up in a wig.

    So, I just rinsed my 10 twists under shower water, and then one by one did the following to each twist:
    1. removed excess water with a microfiber towel,
    2. applied Soultanicals Twist Assist,
    3. brushed the prouct through with the KareCo Tangle Buster Brush (it was a breeze!),
    4. retwisted, and
    5. removed any excess product.
    I'm now sitting under my HairFlair. I can give it an hour and 15 minutes until 5:15, then I have to untwist and style. I hope it dries! If it doesn't, it will look like an elongated wash-and-go versus a twist-out, and I'll just rock that. :smile:

    Bought my running shoes today. Looking forward to trying them out. I rode my trainer Tuesday and Today and got in a good hour. I'm going to the swim center tomorrow to set up some private swim lessons. This extra exercise is really taming my appetite.

    So I have a plan for my eating and exercise. I'm not doing anything with my hair. :ohwell: I'm hoping it will benefit from all of this exercise and outdoor activity.

    @YvetteWithJoy, thank you, I'm trying to do better, but some days its hard.
    @faithVA, I do think my hair is coming along, hopefully, I will be waist length by Dec.

    Gym update:
    Soooooo, because I'm not taking classes at my university during the summer but at a community college, I have to pay 75 to use for the rest of the summer. Yeaaa no, I just can't afford that right now. I not saying it not worth, my school activiy center is bomb. Access to two pool, cardio area, weight area, indoor track, basketball court, discount massages and a brunch of other stuff.I"m going to be moving into my apart in August and I need to save for that, so I need to figure something out.

    I started training for my triathlon on Saturday. Today I got myself out the bed and did a walk-run combo for 30 minutes. My fat thighs are screaming. I'm cycling in the morning. I will get signed up for my swim lessons some time this week and start next week.

    I will be too tired to worry with my hair which is a good thing.

    We just moved and there's still work to do at both places. That will be my activity until we get settled. I got almost 25000 steps the day we moved!

    I weighed in at 161 yesterday, so I guess the fast food hasn't completely ruined my body.

    With the training, I'm down a pound this week. I'm still not under 150 :sad: Hopefully I can drop a pound every 4 days. I have triathlon training tomorrow (cycling/running) and then I need to come home and cut the grass.

    I'm trying henna in my hair tonight. Will see how that goes. I have swim lessons now on Mondays and Wednesdays so I will have to do my hair twice a week :sad: Will have to see how that goes too. I'm going to have to find some fast and simple way to put it up.
