So spark, I'm sorry I neglected you over a week! I have literally been nonstop busy! I love being busy though so it's okay
Got a hair treatment and styled at a curly hair salon, ouidad, in the city as a bday gift to myself...i can't believe my hair can look like this- all natural! just blow dryer, good products & nature!!
So Weds Jan 20 I was in Manhattan from 8am til midnight running errands and then going to a concert at webster hall at night...didn't do any formal exercise, but did walk dfrom 57th & 7th to 11th & 23rd ave and then some so that has to count! ate good, esp for being in city!!!
Thurs Jan 21 I was in Philly, PA all day for another concert. Walked around again, plus danced but no formal exercise. Ate good except when I made my healthy choice at Cosi (chicken pesto on whole grain) didn't realize there was mozzarella on it. I haven't had dairy since 2009 and man, it KILLED my stomach batman!! dairy = bad
Friday Jan 22 I worked 10am-7pm and was exhausted from 2 long days. Again, no exercise.
Sat Jan 23rd I celebrated my 24th birthday with some close friends. It was a blast! No exercise (had work before celebrating) And like I said, it was my birthday. Should I talk about the food? I ENJOYED MYSELF! I did have dairy again- turkey mozzarella grilled veggie panini on whole grain for dinner. But also had a glass of white wine, 2 vodka cranberries, a red velvet cupcakes and chocolate covered cookie dough bites my friend decided to give me as a present (evil man. E-VIL) I had a good time. My birthday is once a year. I do not feel bad at all.
So then I woke up Sunday, my throat and head were KILLING me. I think going nonstop from the 16th i wore myself down. Sunday & Monday I couldn't work out because I felt like crap-o-la!
Now we're at almost a week where I did no formal exercise at all. SOO not like me. But it happens. I decided I had to repeat week 2 of p90x (the last week) because there was no way the week before could have counted.
That Sunday I got a new puppy!!! We adopted a 9 month old male dachshund, Stretch, from a doxie rescue. He came from Mississippi. Rescue workers drove him from Mississippi to Pennsylvania and my parents drove to Penn to get him (i didnt go bc 4 hours in a car with them is unbearable) He's the sweetest thing ever. I'm in love. He loves to cuddle and is on my lap as I type!!!
My real birthday was Tues the 26th. I did p90x shoulders & arms AND chest & back in a row to make up for not doing chest & back sunday...um yea, i never recommend this EVER...the next day, my upper body was so sore like never before!!! oh man! Ate some vegan chocolate brownies i made from alicia silverstone's "the kind diet" book. AMAZING. Also had almond chocolate cookie I made from new issue of clean eating magazine!!
Yesterday I did p90x plyo..was low impact due to my knees but intense man!!!
Today I woke up and had a bad headache all day. Was getting dizzy. Decided to rest and not push myself.
Plan on doing legs & back tomorrow- hopefully before work, and ab ripper.
I also submitted my updated pictures to beachbody for the million dollar body grand finale contest..was my last step for the entry..i won $1,000 in march and now i have a chance at $5,000 as a semi finalist for my age group and/or $25,000 as the overall winner. I won't get overall winner, the woman i hope who gets it completely deserves it. I'm praying I get semi finalist- that would so rock. I'm ver disappointed in my pics. Compared to most of America, I'm sure i'm okay, but for where I was in Jan 09 after my first round of p90x, I look worse. Hopefully it's not too bad. Was debating to post them or not, don't think i'm that brave. After I'm done with this p90x round i will post to compare.
My Arbonne business has been doing great! So many people I am showing the products too are really falling in love with them. My skin's changed drastically as well. I really like that they are all natural and good for the environment with nothing bad in them. And they are vegan!! If you want info, please message me
I go back to school to finish my bachelor degree on Monday. I have 10 classes left. Fingers crossed. I'm so nervous.
So that's it really. Will get back on spark more consistently, so sorry I was MIA again!
