Haircuts and Fitness Updates
I decided to practice styling it before heading to Alabama and THANK GOODNESS I did. >.> After washing and drying my hair, I realized that she had given me a shag...I looked like Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett (DON'T JUDGE I READ GO FUG YOURSELF THAT'S HOW I KNOW). Poofy on the top and super, super thin at the bottom. Even better? She had missed a HUGE CHUNK on the side. So after some panicked phone calls because by now my mom was in Missouri, I found out that SuperCuts was still open so I went in and said "just give me a bob." So now I have a bob. And I have gotten compliments on it. All's well that ends well but, jeez, if I had known I was going to get 4 inches cut off, I would have picked a cooler haircut.
ANYWAY. I have midway fitness pics!
But first, let me relate to you a conversation between me and Autumn:
Autumn, after poking my tummy: Mama, your tummy is squishy.
Me: I know, that's why we've been going to the gym a lot lately. I've been exercising.
Autumn, completely deadpan: It's not working.
Weight: 116 pounds
Body Fat: 26%
I am not sure why my body fat percentage jumped up...maybe I'm retaining water? I dunno. BUT FOUR POUNDS!!! That's a lot for a short person like me!
It's been encouraging because she says I have good balance, focus, and body alignment, which means I'm not starting from nothing. And my body is remembering what it is supposed to do without much protest. Everything has been so safe and gentle that despite me hurting all over, I haven't had many problems with any of the incisions. So, yay!
