- Indoor track – approx. 1 mile
- Body Pump – 60 minutes
Yesterday morning, I woke up and headed to the gym. I started with a one mile run on the indoor track.
I am really starting to like the indoor track. I am not good at running outside in the cold (or the heat) so I stick to the treadmill during the winter months, but I like the indoor track a lot better than the treadmill and I can go a lot faster.
I actually made an effort to count my laps this time, and I ran ten laps which is slightly over a mile. I have never counted laps before so I often couldn’t remember if I was running my fourth lap or if I had just completed my fourth lap, etc. I finally figured out that I could use my watch to help me count laps.
I started my Polar watch right when I got on the track and it took me approximately one minute to complete one lap. So, if my watch said 7:30 (total time since I started the workout) I knew I was on lap seven.
After running on the track, I went to BodyPump. I was really dragging in BodyPump yesterday. Usually, if I don’t feel like working out in the morning, I go to the gym anyway and am totally fine once I’m there. But yesterday, I was just tired, run-down, hot, and sore. I still got through the class, but it was hard.
Yesterday afternoon, we went to my in-law’s house to do our final Christmas celebration with them.
It looks like my nephew has bows in his hair, but they’re actually reindeer antlers with bows on them.
I decided to wear my hair a little bit different yesterday.
My hair is one of my features that I am most self conscious about. I have extremely fine hair and I always have, and it’s blonde with doesn’t help with the fineness. It grows slow and it grows weird no matter how much my stylist tries to fix it. One side is always longer and one side is a lot thinner. It’s naturally wavy, but not a nice way. A frizzy crazy wavy.
It doesn’t “do” anything. It rarely holds a curl and besides a ponytail and a straightener, I am not good at doing my hair. I wear it in a ponytail to the gym and for most of the day. When I do style it, I blow-dry and straighten it. That’s it.
Well, I decided to try and do something different with it for 2014, so I bought a curling wand, which is basically a tapered curling iron without the clip.
It was on sale for $25 at Ulta and comes with a heat proof glove since there’s no clip to hold your hair. I didn’t really have high hopes since my hair doesn’t normally like to curl, but I was pleasantly surprised with the results.
I haven’t curled my hair in years, so it wasn’t prefect and I could use some more practice but I was happy with how it came out.
Jacob loves making crazy eyes in pictures.
The nice thing about curly hair is that it definitely makes my hair appear not so fine and flat. I have tried every volume shampoo, spray, cream, and mousse on the market and most of them just way down my hair.
And there’s my hair story
- Approx. 3 miles – treadmill and indoor track
I went to the gym for a quick workout this morning. I ran three miles and then called it a day. I have felt so blah lately and I can’t wait for the new year to start!
Have a great afternoon!
