Hey y'all! So lately I've been working on keeping our meals clean (limited sugar, less carbs, more fibrous carbs, lean protein as well as plant based protein, etc) and getting back into my workout regimen. I've also been wearing my hair up in a 'puff' (the back is up pinned upwards and I fluff up the front for more volume) instead of letting it all hang out. It also makes detangling a whole lot easier for me on wash day.
Speaking of my hair someone asked me in the comments if it gets dirty since I go so long in between washes . . . Well before I started exercising everyday - no. I don't apply product to my scalp so I don't get a lot of build up. And if I was to notice flakes or product on my scalp yes I would go ahead and wash ahead of schedule. Now working out presents a whole new problem. I'm a sweaty mess (the sign of a very good workout apart from not being able to talk after :)) and although I keep my hair up in a puff my scalp also sweats. So yeah a washing is due most of the time, but I just use conditioner. It's called a cowash. So many shampoos contain ingredients that will strip your hair of not only the dirt but your natural oils and your scalp will be like the desert after . . . a dry, lifeless mess. So I avoid that and just use some conditioner just as I would shampoo and style my hair the same way after.
So here's a recent pic of me looking like a dork with my chocolate protein shake from yesterday. Yes . . . if I'm having a sugar craving I add some unsweetened cocoa to my protein powder and throw in some hemp seeds for a boost of good fat. I'm staying away from sugar (like candy bars, never been one to drink soda) and trying to steer my cravings towards the healthy stuff.
So far so good. Been almost 3 weeks and my muscles are looking more defined and I don't have those awful 'detox' headaches you get when you cut out all the fast food and highly processed stuff out of your diet.
I'm still in the process of organizing my room/closets since the move in July. We've finally stopped traveling for this year and are trying to get back settled at home. So clothing posts should be coming along.
Hope yall are doing fantastic!
