Yesterday – I saw Melisha. Now Melisha is not just any hairstylist, she is the most in demand hairstylist on the Eastside of Seattle. She is usually booked for weeks – even months and it took me 1 month of waiting before I was able to see her. How was she? Very good. When I left – my hair looked shiny and sleek and it was bouncing and behaving. My daughter even commented when I got home that my hair looked beautiful. And beautiful it was.
So the 30 day challenge that I made yesterday morning was weighing on my mind as I sat in the chair getting the final flat iron smoothing. As I sashayed out of the salon ( 60 dollars lighter), with the wind blowing through my tresses, I thought… I can’t possibly take spin tomorrow and sweat this out.
No Excuses – hair and all.
Well – this morning I got up and headed for the gym. Already accepting that I would have less than 24 hours of perfect hair and that I all but wasted my time and money at the salon.
Today’s class was intense and wonderfully hard. Of the 60 minute class, we spent 45 minutes of straight hill climbing with no recoveries. And my clothes and hair had all the sweat to prove it. When I was done I did a quick arm and ab workout and then dashed home to take the kids to school. When I left the gym – my hair was a wreck.
The amazing thing is that when I got home , my hair was dry and actually looked quite good. By the time I got dressed – it still looked pretty good. All in all – I did nothing at all and it looked quite pretty good. So yesterday wasn’t a total waste – in fact my hair is still bouncing and behaving. And best of all – I am on track with my 30 day challenge…
Although I think it might be too easy and I need to add “lose 6 lbs” to my challenge.
