Another Monday in the books.
- Wake up and realize it’s Monday: Check
- Get through work: Check
- Post indulgent weekend sweat fest: Check
Since I let myself rest this morning after a long weekend and day of travel, my workout was postponed until after work. While I always prefer to get my work out in first thing in the morning, I always find that I am mentally more in the zone for afternoon work outs.
I’m sure it’s a matter of having more fuel and water in me, not to mention just being awake. Either way, working out in the afternoon isn’t always a bad thing.
Workout of the Day: 1 warm up mile (9:08) 100 push ups, 200 sit ups, 300 squats, 1 mile finish (8:12)
Because I wasn’t just waking up, I wasn’t as concerned about having these miles be slow and easy, which made it kind of fun. I am growing to love short speed work outs. And as for the strength training, I broke it down the same way I have been:
- set of 30 of each
- 20 of each until I reach 90
- 10 of each
- then 5 sets of 20 sit ups, 40 squats
I find that the ONLY way to complete this work out is to split up the exercises up into manageable sets. Give my other muscles time to break while I’m focusing on another muscle group.
I may never wash my hair again . . .
Since I got my sweat on POST work. . . I needed to build in time to take a second shower before eating. If you know me, I am NOT about taking time to get ready twice in one day. Oh no. Well today I tried a new-to-me method for my hair, and quite frankly I may never wash my hair for real again.
To start this story, I forgot a hair tie AND head band for this workout. Not cool. I HATE when my hair is in my face, but I pulled through and just got it done.
Well, this left my hair (especially around my neck) NICE and sweaty. Oh yeah.
Call me gross, but I was not down to wash my hair tonight. Pizza night was far more important. So, I put dry shampoo in my hair (I used Panteene Pro-V), brushed it through, then put it up in a pony tail to shower.
When I got out, I quickly blow dried my hair with a half round brush (round brush would probably work even better) in 3 different layers. And seriously, within 5 minutes, my hair had more volume than it did BEFORE my work out.
Maybe I shouldn’t wash my hair anymore. I am open to this idea.
Question of the Night: Dry shampoo? Do you wash your hair everyday or like to be a little sick-o like me? 🙂
