Goals

I May Just Be Cray Cray…

So that 10k my friend and I signed up for 3 weekends from now? We decided to just go for it and make it a half marathon. Not only that, but we’ll be pushing about 70lbs of child in a double stroller.  We decided we’d switch off every mile pushing and we can walk when we need to. We’ll see how it goes… We’re doing an 8-mile test run this weekend.

I’m improving quite a bit with my running and very happy. I don’t have to walk much anymore, although I do take my walking breaks since I’m following an actual program. I’m up to 7min running 1 minute walking… quite a change from my 30s running / 2min walking that I started out at just a couple months ago!

I’m pretty proud of the changes I’ve made mentally throughout this process also. It’s funny, I used to believe that if I wasn’t getting weight lifting in I’d just become flabby, uncomfortable and not be “cool”. Well, I haven’t picked up more than a 15lb Dumbbell in MONTHS and to top that off, it’s been almost two months since I’ve done ANY real weight lifting. I’ve been doing daily (or close to it) yoga, 3-4x per week running and about 15min bodyweight workouts here and there… averaging about 1x per week. I feel better than EVER! I think it’s just all about finding what we want to do, what we enjoy doing, and what makes us happy. I didn’t realize how miserable I was with weightlifting until I allowed myself to just do what feels good and stop listening to the social media guru’s of the world who say YOU MUST LIFT IF YOU DON’T YOU’RE WASTING YOUR TIME!  –  Well, screw you.

Ok- end rant. 🙂

And… onto my last review for this Frosty VoxBox from Influenster.

EcoTools Hair Brush: $10.99

This was definitely one of the better items in the voxbox. I have used it daily since it’s arrival and have found it works great for my short ‘do. Although I think I remember reading somewhere that it’s best suited for long hair, I actually find it to be very well suited for my short hair also. It’s a flat brush, so if I want more body I’ll use it ALONG with my round brush, but for most days this brush alone works well. What I love most about it is that it’s designed to allow more airflow while drying, that means less time under the blow-dryer and less time for your hair to get damaged! Since I dye my hair about every 7 weeks my hair tends to get frazzled towards the end of its dye cycle so the less time under the heat the better!

Another bonus is the way the bristles feel on my scalp – I absolutely love it! It’s almost like a massage!!

If I didn’t already have this brush I would go out and buy it for sure!! I rated this brush 5/5 on influesnter.com.
