To Perm or Not to Perm..

hey ladiess...

So, i'm sitting here this morning before my class and i was thinking... "how about a perm?"
Now, i've ALWAYS wanted to get a perm, but like a body wave kind of perm, not those spiral curls or anything. My current hair texture is pretty thick, it's long (lower back) and it fairly straight with a little bit of movement. It's not completely like board straight or anything since it's so thick. I always wanted to achieve that beachy hair look like those girls do in the summer but unfortunately my hair texture doesn't call for that type of look.

So, i dont know really... I think majority of the issue is the cost of it. I know perms are usually super expensive and a friend of mine paid over $100 for hers and her hair was like half the length of mine. Luckily though, I start training at Panera Bread next Monday so atleast i'll have income. However, I need to pay for my prom dress first.. and that's $350 without alterations. awesome isnt it?

I hate how i already have a list of what to spend my money on: a perm, prom dress, prom tickets, gallons of paint, shelves, clothes, car fixings.... ugh... i need $

I'm trying to sell some of my sneakers for extra support but it's pretty slow. If any of you ladies need kicks, let me know!

Update! again..

hey loves,

'tis I, here to update again. I've been busy still with school and trying to get my workout stuff together for Prom. I already bought my Prom dress and all but I'm trying to lose a little weight before I get it altered and all. I already got in a size bigger but I'm trying to even get to a size smaller lol

Anywho, i skipped my public speaking class today cause i have a test on a book in ap lit and it didnt read it. stupid me, i know :( but i am still going to pilates, just cause class just started on tuesday and im pretty sure i'll be getting my money's worth.

Also, my jogs/runs have actually been taking place outside now. Before i did all my running indoors on a treadmill but i got sooooo booring so i took it outside and i enjoy it much now. i wanted to go running this morning but it's soo wet and nasty out

speaking of mornings, i usually ALWAYS workout in the morning. just so i can get it out of the way without making excuses later. unfortunately, i haven't been faithful lol my alarms still rings at 4:45 every morning but i just turn it off and fall back asleep. i obviously love mornings lol

be back soon!

random morning

Hey guys!

sorry for being so late again! i've been busy with school even though i really have only 2 classes right now. it sucks. but i have no class this morning so i'm here for yall :)

sooo with the upcoming warm weather, i've started a workout regime again along with eating less. I would diet, but i dont believe i could stay on a diet. so, i eat everything i ate before, just a LOT less lol

i recently bought me a new bathing suit a few weeks because i couldn't resist the price reduction and the cute-ness of iti bought it at with their special pricing and i absolutely LOVE it. the shipping was also a piece of cake, the second day after i received an email telling me that it was shipped, i got it in the mail.

so, i currently use that as my motivation for a summer bod. that's my version of the "itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini" lol that i hope to wear for the first time during senior week at ocean city, md ;)

as of right now, my regime goes as follows:

Monday: strength training/weight lifting, 30 min jog
Tuesday: 30 min jog, pilates (which will start mid March)
Wednesday: strength training/weight lifting, 30 min jog
Thursday: 30 min jog, pilates
Friday: strength training/weight lifting, 30 min jog
Saturday(occasional): 30 min jog, boxing
Sunday: Rest

i get most of the strength training and weight workouts from my glamour and shape magazines that come in the mail. so far, i think things are working out well. My goal weight is about 115 lbs to 120 lbs. and i stand about 5'1" almost 5'2" so i think it's reasonable. I weight myself last night and i weighed in at 135.4 lbs. according to my home scale. i was almost 140 lbs so i'm glad i caught myself when i did lol.

i've been on this for almost 3 weeks now and i think i have seen a very LITTTLE improvement so far. but i've just recently (as in these past couple of days) changed my eating habits so i'm hoping i'll see more changes soon.

more to come!
thanks :)
