Hey Hey Hey! It’s Tuesday Tabletalk Dawwwwwg <Tommy voice>.
Anyway, I just wanted to update yall on my progress and other random happenings. First off, I’ve been sticking to working out four days a week. Yay me! When I say this is NEW to me…this whole working out on a consistent basis…I mean this is some NEW ish.
If I keep up like this, I don’t see how I will keep my hair straight EVER. I break out in bonafide sweats. I used to
sparkle glisten when I “worked out”, but now I feel drips coming down my face. This is some NEW ish!
To maintain my edges, I have been wearing cotton bands around my hair and that really helps, but I will keep it real with yall. I have been in struggle mode with my hair since I’ve started this. Like I said, this is all new, so I know I will figure it out, but I am washing my hair more than usual. I have just been conditioner washing throughout the week so my hair doesn’t dry out. For some reason though, my hair feels dry after almost every workout. So I need to moisturize
my sexy it with conditioner, and shampoo only when I feel my hair really needs it.
Oh yea. I was on limp mode today. My ankle is messed up. I took this class called R.A.W. (Real Athletic Workout). It is a class where they have you jumping over cones, and sticks, planking and sprinting around the track. Well what had happened was, I was jumping doing double crosses or whatever you call it and fell wrong on my ankle. Yikes! It was towards the end of class when this happened, but that mess hurt, and I had to thug it out though because there are some old men (I mean really old men) in the class who kept passing me on the track and I refused to go out like that. At the end of class, I talked to one of the old men (he actually
walked up on me asked me if I scared to come back…um, was he challenging me??) and he also said he had been doing the class for over 10 years…I was like, no wonder his ass was zipping up and down the basketball court like a gray-haired sonic the hedgehog. Anyway, I digress. My point is I need to go at my own pace–a pace that I’m comfortable with, and I should not judge a dusty old book by its cover.
Oh, thank you all for texting and sending me fitness inspiration. One of my girls even sent me a recipe for flat tummy water. I drink water anyway, but with this recipe, you have a little flavor and the ingredients help to flush you out. I’m definitely going to try it. I also see water recipes on Instagram…have you ever tried them? Instagram must be where it is at, because most of the inspiration sent to me was from Instagram and someone who shall remain nameless even sent me a Bossip.com link for fitness inspiration (gossip and fitness at the same damn time)…Side note: I have some boughetto friends (emphasis on the ghetto)…but anyway, I thank you all the same. Besides Instagram inspiration, I’ve been reading these blogs every once in a while.
- fitgirlcode.com – they have inspiration, food and body transformation articles
- drphoenyx.com – because she is a cute black woman with great tips
- hello healthy – this is a blog from the app myfitnesspal. I use the app most days anyway, so when I do, I usually click on the blog link. They have great food tips.
- blackgirlsrun.com – ok. I don’t really read this, but I heard they have great running groups and they also link to other great fitness blogs. Win!
What else. Yoko graduated from puppy class! Yes…I put her in a class. I think the teacher passed her so she doesn’t have to see her anymore though. You know like how teachers used to pass bad ass students so they didn’t have to see them the next year. It was kind of like that. To pass the class, Yoko was supposed do all of her tricks back to back on command. She did one and a half tricks, got distracted and then squatted down and peed next to the teacher. Next thing I know, the teacher is writing out her graduation certificate. I was like what the what, but she didn’t even…whatever. the point is that my girl graduated!
I can go on and on with Tuesday Tabletalk because I just feel like I am randomly talking to my girls, so I shall stop here, because it is officially Wednesday. One day I will be like those professional bloggers who plan out their blog posts and write like five posts ahead of time and put them in queue to post on the designated day. Today is not that day.
