I wore it like this pretty much all weekend, washing and detangling daily. By Sunday I was feeling a bit done with the afro and opted for a pony pouf: Same process, but palmed my tresses back into a high pony tail and then doubled my elastic headband. Secured, but not tight. Again, I didn't touch it, didn't bother it, didn't shape it - just let it do what it do, baby! Both of these looks work, but aren't polished enough for the classroom. Considering the students have come accustomed to me wearing my hair pulled back, it would be a distraction if I started rocking my curls daily. Perhaps as Spring Break approaches (which isn't until the last week of April, tell me about it) or during the last Month of school will open up more opportunities.
30 for 30: It's getting old. I miss wearing certain pieces from my closet and am not enthused each morning when I pull on the same pieces from the week before. The first two weeks were fun, but now..I'm bored with my selection. Not to mention, the weather is warmer and CLEARLY I'm not interested in looking like a fool because I showed up in boots and stockings in 90 degree weather! #nothankyou. Now, I said I wasn't following all the rules that Kendi wants you to abide by! I am still figuring out my closet and well, this has helped me to figure it out even more! And so, I went shopping; know that I shop at Goodwill! So, quite frankly all of my pieces plus tax will equal your one XXI Forever piece without tax! I got 11 pieces and one pair of Nine West Shoes for $36.00! I'm LoveN these "new" pieces!
|These are only the skirts!! The center piece has a top, I also bought a slip and a navy Blue Blazer|
FINANCE: I have an event coming up in a month and initially I was going to miss a day of school, fly up on Friday, stay at a friend's-minus-the-friend for the weekend and truck back on Sunday night. So, I invited another friend to come and due to her budget constrains, offered to pay the hotel fees. To be totally honest, I was content with this plan! I was looking forward to the weekend, started planning out events, and then someone came up with a FABULOUS idea, get a same day ticket! Turns out, going this route saves me at least $300.00! It will be an early morning flight to one airport and a super late flight departing from a different airport! Multi-city! But for $300.00 cheaper #ICANdeal
WOMANHOOD: As I walked along the Hollywood beach Saturday and ate chicken wings dockside...I realized I need to get this body in shape! Okay, yes I'm slender, but woooo chile - you should see these thighs and this waist. I wasn't this way last year! I blame it on having summers off where I eat vanilla ice cream and brownies drenched in fudge or homemade lasagna with extra cheese. Oooooh, let's not forget my favorite meal selection: BREAKFAST FOOD!! I'm talking grits and eggs and bacon and french toast with butter and powdered sugar and syrup and strawberries and sausage and hash browns and fried apples all on one plate...YESSSSSSS*exhale*
And so, I started a diet, well I'm being more cautious about my calorie intake! Based on my BMI, I can eat up to 1500 calories a day, granted I work out for at least 20 minutes a day. If I do plan to work out, well 1200 calories. I am planning to eat 4 or more times a day and drink 2 glasses of water with each meal. One whole glass before I even start eating and one during. It's been since Monday and I feel different already. Sky, the dog, really enjoys it because I take her for a walk/run everyday. It takes 21 days to form a habit, I'm 14% there!
