I am pleased to announce that Operation Sexyback is in FULL EFFECT!
I am determined to get (& stay) in shape before the big THREE OH. Although that’s roughly two years away, I figured that now was as good a time as any to get it poppin! What does this mean? Well, for me it means eating more fruits & vegetables, drinking more water, taking vitamin supplements, leaving the Cokes alone *TEARS*AND…(drumroll please)… cardio & strength training!!! Now I know none of this sounds dramatic to you, but for the little black girl with an aversion to sweat & hard work, I can assure you that this is a momentous occasion, LOL! It’s been three weeks since I joined the gym & things got off to a slow start at first, but I am really starting to enjoy the process. I even joined a kickboxing class!
I’ve been using Calorie Count to keep track of my progress. They have a free app that you can download to your phone, for on-the-go updates. I’m not gonna lie, the Zaxby’s withdrawal is about to kill me. But since I’ve been replacing my lunchtime Zax Fix with Smart Ones frozen entrées, I am trimming my waistline as well as my budget… WINNING!
Yes, I work out in my makeup (eyes & lips only). Because what’s a Sham without her glam?! I wash my face before & after my workout using Clean & Clear. I have found that wearing my hair in two pigtails or Minnie Mouse buns preserves my curls best. Although, the roots become a little wonky during the week, the length of my hair stays relatively curly.
Did you know that one hour of hairstyling burns about 300 calories?! Apparently we (DIY hairstylists) have been working on our biceps, triceps, deltoids & rotator cuffs one curl at a time!
What are you doing to preserve your sexy and/or get it back?
