Thinking Out Loud *24* - Insane 1st week

In Life
Its so weird to see where life takes you. The people you meet, experiences, places. I like to sit back every now and then and just reflect on it all. Sometimes meeting someone from a completely different walk of life can give you a new sense of self.

Its reassuring to know your own self worth.

I havent been watching the news like I would like to, because I have been so busy. Ughh. So I feel like I am missing out on what is going on in the world. I refuse to watch local news though, because its so depressing. I'd rather see depressing shit happening thousands of miles away...

I am currently, completely obsessed with Insanity! I have been trying to do it every day and so far have been pretty good about doing so. It has been 2 weeks and I am only 4 days behind schedule. No big deal. Some of those days I was physically incapable of doing anything, I was in so much pain.

I have been taking pics and Zoe's on my HTC One to keep track of everything. I feel like I am lighter and I do look a little "tighter" especially in my legs. My core is really strong, which is weird because I never felt like it really was. My abs can take a serious beating and I never feel a thing. I love it!

My legs on the other hand... I'm always cursing Shaun T out while doing his workout!! Hes always like "Push! Push! Faster! Work!!" and Im always like "Hell no! Fuck that!! This is bullshit!!" But I do try to work through the pain as much as I can. All the jumping is really painful on my calves, so I try to focus the work on my thighs or core... It doesnt always work though. lol

I never realized how weak my ankles were. Its really weird. I guess thats why my legs hurt more than anything else those first few days.

Doing this workout gets easier and easier the more you do it. Like right now, I feel great! I am not sore or anything, whereas last week when I first started I could barely walk!

I am actually looking forward to working out again tonight!

The Hair
I am totally in absolute love with my hair!! It looks so awesome! The hair is actually holding up really well, and I am super surprised and excited about that!

I have basically been cowashing every 1-2 days to make the curls pop and to keep the hair soft and moisturized. So far so good.

The hair does frizz more than I would like. I am thinking I should do a protein treatment and actually do that trim that I said I was going to do. Maybe this weekend.

The shedding is still minimal even with the washing, but since I have been washing so often I am going to go ahead and reseal my wefts this weekend when I redo my hair.

I want to keep this in for at least the next 2-3 months. I want to straighten the hair out soon just to see what it all looks like. I also plan on posting a video demonstration on how I take care of the hair, as well as the products I like to use.

I have a bunch of products that I purchased specifically for this hair. I will definitely show them when I record this weekend. I am also going to re-record the installation because I dont really like how I did it the first time. Plus my braids underneath are really messy and I need to wash my hair. Its really gross underneath from all the Insanity I have been doing... smh.

I'm thinking next time I want to do a 18-20" body wave and I want to get a lace closure as well. I didnt want to do a closure this time, plus I couldnt really find a closure that I even liked, that matched this hairs texture. So yea, next time different hair and I will be using a closure.
