my real reason for updating is this: i got my hair cut today, and the hairdresser let me know it's pretty damaged. i know this. i blow dry it a lot and straighten it whenever i wear it down. so new resolution: for the next month, my hair will only be towel- or air-dried and worn naturally wavy/curly. additionally, i won't wear it up in tight high ponytails all the time when i don't feel like washing it (i have lots of damage where i ponytail it too). i know this isn't along the same lines as most of the health stuff we talk about on here, but i think taking good care of your hair is an important part of your health regimen too. so there's that.
also, weight/body fat percentage update:
my mom bought me a nice scale that does all that fancy stuff. so as of now, my accurate weight and bodyfat% are: 118.6 lbs, 20.9% bodyfat. 115 would be a nice number to get to eventually, but not a necessity. bodyfat, on the other hand, i would love to get down to 20 or a little less. (reminder: i'm 5'5 so 118 is a healthy weight but i would like to drop a lb or two while toning up my midsection in particular). i already know everything i need to do to accomplish these goals. the problem is actually DOING them.
oh, and cigarette update:
i smoked the last of my pack while drinking this past weekend (sat night). i've made a pact with myself not to buy anymore. and i won't ask someone for a cigarette even if i want one. now, i might accept an offered cigarette... but i won't ask. :P i know how much the bf dislikes it when i smoke (and i already quit doing it around him), so that's even more motivation to stop drunksmoking altogether. also, one of my close friends who i normally smoke with is co-op'ing this fall and won't be around to convince me to smoke with her. lol
anyway, that was long. sorry. hope everyone is doing great on their challenges!
