Hair update: I’ll be 7 weeks post relaxer tomorrow!

This stretch has been quite boring. My hair has been in a single braid for the better part of the past month and in as much as i like being able to (sometimes) go for up to a week without combing my hair while its in that style, its time to do something else.

I haven’t been following my hair regimen to a T. I’ve been washing my hair every 3-10 days – sometimes skipping the deep conditioning step. I don’t even remember the last time i did an oil prepoo treatment ::sigh::

Fitness update: Truth be told, i suck at this whole fitness journey thing. I found a workout routine that i LOVE but i sometimes think the guy who devised it is trying to kill me…but i still love it – and him πŸ™‚ . I have workout gear, meals all planned out – kind of…nothing fancy. I have everything i need…am just not disciplined enough i guess. I try to workout at least 3 times a week but i feel thats not good enough because i used to work out 6 days a week.

Working out is one sweaty affair

I know i can do better, so this is me just putting it out there that perhaps its time to make a change. Hopefully i’ll feel prompted to do the necessary. Besides, i have to admit i was a little bit jelly when i read about Lydz making progress on her journey πŸ™‚ I want that too (minus the pigging out πŸ˜€ )

Not to worry, its not been all gloom and doom for me this past few weeks πŸ˜€ In fact, my focus seemed to have shifted to other things. Like learning more about skin undertones. Turns out i have cool (deep winter) undertones! This explains why am drawn to certain shades when it comes to clothes and makeup (read lipsticks).

I’ve also been thinking of revampimg my wardrobe. I can feel the cold/rainy weather creeping in an am not prepared for it. I especially need a good pair of shoes. What do you guys wear to work when it rains? You know how these Nairobi streets get.

Another thing i’ve been obsessing over; Herbal teas! Looks like am building a collection. How did i live without them??? You should start drinking some if you aren’t already.

Have i mentioned my love for tv shows before? No? Well then, i practically watch everything there is to watch (ok, not really but i follow a lot of series). Too bad most of them have come to an end and (for some) i have to wait till next year for their their return. Thats enough anxiety to give me an ulcer! I have decided to re-watch ‘Sartacus’ for the second time round.

That should help take the edge off for a while at least. If you have any idea where i can get the book, please let me know…

Speaking of books, i’ve been trying to finish up this Game of Thrones book…

a dance with dragons

Yes yes, Game of Thrones. What can i say, i love everything about the series. Am on the hunt for this one by the same Author…

The lands of ice & fire

Its basically maps of the lands described in the books. And yes, i’ll pay for that πŸ˜€ Okay. I’ll stop here with my ramblings.

One more thing, tomorrow is my birthday! Am so close to saying goodbye to my 20’s. Am that old πŸ™‚ I’ll just keep telling myself that, “In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” Abraham Lincoln said that, not me. But it rings true.

Have a great Monday!

Happy birthday in advance and don’t fear saying goodbye to the 20s the other side of the 20s is so much more fun I tell you!

    • No problem. Am yet to properly sit down and catch up with with your more recent posts. For real this journey is a killer! I was busy saying i need to tone up but what i really need to do first is burn all this excess fat i have. I thought of joining the link up but decided not to because i knew i wouldn’t keep up with the workouts, etc but now I’ll join in. I think that will help keep me accountable. Thanks for the invite? And thanks for the Birthday wish. Suddenly life seems so real πŸ˜€

  2. Happy early birthday!!So what herbal teas have you been drinking?I’ve been trying out green tea after I read about it on Lydz blog…*Hi Lydz*:-)…let’s just say I drink it in huge gulps:-D

  3. Happy belated birthday! Yay !

    Never forget to celebrate life.

    So im not the only one who does hair journey light sometimes; LOL. Thats encouraging to hear.

  4. HI Joyce how are you. Your hair looks great. I have a question. Of late I have been losing a lot of hair. Shedding. I have tried henna and I don’t use heat. How can I slow/stop the shedding. My hair has really thinned out

    • Hey Alma, am fine thank you πŸ™‚ Have you been doing anything differently with regards to your hair? Are you using new products? Are you freshly relaxed? These could be factors contributing to shedding. What brand of henna did you use? Check out this post i did on shedding. I’ll try and put together a better one very soon.
