2 weeks to healthy

i have been on a mission is 2 weeks to healthier hair. after a recent visit to the salon i realized just how damaged my hair was due to the daily use of my beloved flat iron. i have vowed to minimize it's use and let my hair get healthy again. i have also started using an amazing- but quite pricey shampoo/conditioner. Morrocan Oil. it is amazing so far. i only have to wash my hair every 3 days and use such a small amount on each wash that the price kind of works itself out. i have limited my flat iron use to just the front of my hair and lowered the heat to med instead of super hot....we;ll see how this goes!

Two Good Causes

I recently found out an old boyfriend's daughter has Leukemia. She is only 5 years old and happened to be in my son's class this year. When I found out I was so sad and upset at first but have since come to think that there is something- even the tiniest thing- i can do to help. I decided to register for the Sporting Life 10K Run for kids with Cancer. This not only helps raise funds for a great cause but also gives me the motivation to run and get fit before May 12th. One month after turning the dreaded 40... OMG!!!
Anyone want to come with me???

starting small

since my November challenge fell curbside pretty early on in the month I decided to start smaller this time. I have challenged myself to do either the Wii fit Zumba or the elliptical for a minimun of 20 minutes every second day. This is more attainable than a full on workout every day! So far so good. I started on Friday and did a beginner zumba class. i was sweating regardless of the "beginner" label on the class. Managed to fit in another 20 minute zumba today. What i have learned when I fall off the horse is the only way to get back on again is just to go for it. No time to hesitate and dwell on failure! life is too short for that.

makeup makeover

I recently had a day off with nothing to really focus on but myself. I decided that after getting my nails done I was going to get a Sephora...
