I finally got myself motivated to get back in the gym!!!
I am determined to tone up and lose a few pounds by July which I know I can do if I put in the work.
I plan to hit the gym 3 times a week doing:
45 minutes of cardio (either on the stair master or elliptical)
15-25 minutes of core-strength exercises (free weights, ab machines, etc.)
Then once a week I will either go for a 2-3 mile walk or do some jumping jax and crunches at home.
I'm a pretty healthy eater and cut out 95% of processed foods from my diet. I just put on a little weight because I have been eating out A LOT in the past few months. I basically celebrated my birthday January and February.
Now that I am past 4 months post relaxer, I don't see myself wearing my hair loose while working out. I sweat a lot, especially on my head, and I don't want to have to deal with detangling after cleansing my hair. For now, I'm thinking twists may have to do but I miss wearing my hair out! I may do twists during the week and a braid-out or something on weekends. I'm going on a mini vacation the first week of April which I def plan on wearing my hair out for. But when I return, I'm thinking of doing single braids earlier than planned(July). We'll see!
For now, health is more important than my hair!
