Photo update as promised! I thought I would miss my hair, but I don't! I'm also interested to see what it looks like without being straightened and without hair stuff in it (not sure what all she was spraying in my hair!). I'm definitely a low maintenance hair person (I pretty much was it and that's it. I don't even really brush it) so I hope this new 'do works out well with my lack of hairstyling!

I'm considerably less sore today. Just a tiny bit if I stretch my shoulders. We went to a friend's house for dinner last night. I did really well following my plan (remembering to watch what I eat and no drinking because it wasn't a weekend). I did have a san peligrino limonata, which I though was healthy. Well after opening it, i realized I may as well drink a freaking coke- 35g or sugar and 150 calories! I drank a little more than 1/2 of it and hubby drank the rest. I should have read it first, but that would have been awkward....
"Do you want something to drink?"
"One of those sparkling lemon sodas sounds good... Oh nevermind, they aren't good for you. Your drinks suck."
I'm still proud that I hung out with friends and didn't drink even when they did! Battle over social drinking Christy-1 Drinking-0 (It's probably more 1 to 300, but I'm starting my official count as of yesterday)
And they put a ton of olive oil on everything! (Yes I know, olive oil is "good fat" blah blah. Well fat is fat when you're over your limit for the day!). Olive oil on the grilled bread, olive oil on the vegetables, chicken marinating in olive oil and spices...
I don't have plans for today, which is good. I'll get my workout in then probably read my book and get some stuff done around the house.
Tomorrow I'm donating my hair! eek! I haven't had short hair since 5th grade so this may be brutal. I'm trying to go shoulder length, so that will probably be 13-14 inches off (10 inches is the minimum). I'll post before and after pictures this weekend.

Well I've been getting my butt kicked all week with the bodyrock challenge! (ok, so maybe it's only been 3 days, but they have been tough!) I'm reeeeeally sore. Like whiny sore. but I like it! Definitely what I needed after a very mediocre May. I went for a run Monday, and a half-ass run yesterday (aka run 1 minute, walk 7ish a few times). I'm just really sore!
So now for the conceited part...
I like being sore and having my muscles be kind of tight. They look good when I'm walking, or holding something or going up the stairs. There. I said it. I have started to see a difference and I like it!
I like to accountability aspect of the June bodyrock challenge- we are sharing our scores, and you never want to under-perform! I also got my husband to do the bodyrock challenge with me last night. He didn't do the lunges on Monday and I blame that for his faster time. Those one leg squat jumps were torture on my butt and calves!
Also, I'm glad I didn't post yesterday afternoon. I had written something and it was super whiny and I ended up deleting it (you're welcome!) and going for a walk.
Oh my god, I forgot the most exciting part! I made homemade frozen yogurt last night! We ate all of it. Out of the container. It was sooo good. And I stayed within my nutrient ranges for everything! Booyah!
Yeah. I just said booyah.
Ps- I had a salad for breakfast instead of oatmeal. Maybe I should always have a salad for breakfast if it makes me this excited??

2nd post of the day with my goals for June 2012 (Thanks to 2GETFIT7 for the reminder!)
I definitely need to get into more of a routine
-Walk after lunch 3x/week
-3 mile jog 3x/week (get to 9.5 minute miles- currently 11ish minute miles)
-Track food EVERY DAY- even if it's bad
-Lose 3 pounds
-Cut back on after work snacking- fold laundry, water the plants, play with the cats no snacking outside of planned snack!
-Get 30 minutes of exercise 5 day per week- run, walk, video, free weights- just do something!)
-Burn 1000 calories per week though exercise (My mile times are pretty slow, so picking up the pace should help a lot!)
Possibly more to come... I need to add in some organizational goals too
