I’m BAAAAACK! (2014 Style)

2 Permalink 1

Man! I haven’t talked to you guys since before Christmas! How in the world are you? I hope you had a very merry Christmas and a great start to your new year. πŸ™‚

I didn’t have any resolutions this year because a) I usually forget about them by February and b) my “be a better person than you were yesterday” mindset shouldn’t be a resolution; it should be a lifestyle.

As you guys know, I had Jayden last month, so my hiatus has been spent adjusting to him and regaining normalcy in my life. And the first step to regaining that normalcy? Doing my hair! LOL. πŸ˜€Β  >>View the full video of my length check and flexirod tutorial<<

Yup! My sister was gracious enough to do my yearly “texlax” on January 1 (how appropriate). It turned out great, if I do say so myself. I’m working on my next long-overdue video, which should be posted next week or so, but these pictures should do for now:

From left to right:
1. My hair before (yikes!)
2. My hair right after I washed the relaxer, protein treatment, shampoo, and conditioner out.
3. My hair after it was detangled and straightened.
4. My hair after I lightly styled it.

From start to finish, it took about 10 hours. 😯

So at least my hair is back to normal. As for me? I’m about 8 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy at 4 weeks post-baby. Is that good? I have no idea, but I’m not worried too much about it. I get cleared to work out again in 2 weeks, so I’ll be good in about a month. (Yes, I’m calling it. LOL!)

All in all, 2014 isn’t too shabby so far. I mean, we’re only a week into it, but it still has been pretty good to me. πŸ˜›

Anywho, I just wanted to let you guys know that I’m still alive and well, and that I’m back to my frequent postings. Until next time, America! 😎

    8 Pounds away?!
    That is very good! They normally say 6 months before you get back to normal but I am rooting for you to reach that 1 month goal. It’s something about that baby fat that sticks a little longer. But you got this…
    Lol

      Yeah.. that baby fat tried to bind me, but I rebuked it in the name of Jesus. LOL. About 3 pounds to go πŸ™‚ But I still need quite a bit of toning!
