Natural Hair

This isn't cute anymore:

I’m 31, the new 30 and I’m closer to my goal than when I started this blog. Now I’m trying to stay on the path that will get me healthy and on the other side of the clothing store. I’ve had my revenge moments and they felt great. Now I’m ready for more of those great moments, maybe this year I’ll propel down something, who knows. But I’m held back by 40 less things.

This morning there was no early rising to get to the gym before work. There was racing and rushing to not be super late to work and man oh man I could have slept in. I need to get myself to bed at a better hour. I broke down and had two shots of espresso and flavored creamer, not really what I wanted to spend my calories and fat on, but I needed a jump start. And of course I didn’t really plan breakfast but I had a light triple fiber English muffin already here and some peanut butter. All in all breakfast was horrible and I have plenty of calories left as long as I get to the gym tonight and eat wisely.

Another Boo worthy mention is that there appears to be a trend starting:

Monday might become Donut Monday, ugh! I will stay strong! I want to wear cute little dresses this summer and a Krispy Kreme donut is not going to help me get there. Although I did take the last 2 cupcakes on Friday, one was for my niece and the other was for me. The beauty of this plan is they were not fresh so I really just swiped at the frosting and threw the rest away. I warned my niece, but the 8 year old only say cupcake and ate it anyway.

Lunch is not a Kashi meal believe it or not, I got a 6 pack of Lean Cuisine from Costco and am enjoying the Honey Roasted chicken, I think on a bed of whole wheat pilaf, which has the texture of orzo. I like it and the price of 6 at Costco is about the cost of 2 Kashi meals.

I’m feeling a bit tired and I’m thinking I might go to the gym earlier than I planned meaning no yoga. I just realized that I have homework and starting it at 9:30 at night is not what I want. I think today will be an hour of cardio.


  1. I hope that you have a better day tomorrow. Maybe you can put your breakfast out the night before, so that it is ready for you in the morning. I usually put out the oatmeal in my plastic container so that in the morning when I am rushing all I have to do is add water.

  2. OH donut Monday could take me DOWN! DON'T LET IT! I'll be your cheerleader...

  3. I did not break, even whnen I took one home for my niece.
