Sheesh this day FLEW by! I feel like I’ve been saying it a lot more lately since I’m officially out of summer mode but seriously.
I’ve been out all day and just got home to relax.
This morning I slept in and it was nice to not have to wake up at 5am like I have been for school. I still woke up fairly early, around 7am but then fell back asleep till 8:30. I decided to just get up after that.
After some coffee and a banana, we were off to the gym!
I’ve had a sore throat the past couple of days and this morning it was even worse. Yuck. I also have really weird tonsils and get these things called Tonsil Stones and that’s when I know I’m not feeling good. Seriously they are NOT cute and really annoying and actually gross. TMI maybe? I’m just being honest
Anyway, I decided that I need to incorporate MUCH more yoga into my weekly workout regimen. I noticed that there was a class this morning at 11 so I went over to the gym a little early so I could get some cardio in.
I wasn’t sure if I was up for running because I wasn’t feeling to hot, but I tried it anyway. Turns out I had a great run! I just did three easy miles because that’s all I had time for.
0-5 . 10 min/mi (6.0 on tread)
5-10 . 9:13 min/mi (6.5)
10-12 . 8:49 min/mi (6.8)
12-16 . 9:13 min/mi (6.5)
16-18 . 8:34 min/mi (7.0)
18-22 . 8:49 min/mi (6.8)
22-25 . 9:13 min/mi (6.5)
25-27 . 10 min/mi (6.0)
Then I walked for the remaining three minutes (4.0). The yoga class was good but I kept feeling really dizzy. I guess that’s just because of the cold I have.
After the gym, we were right next to the mall so we decided to pop in because I’ve been needing a new school bag.
Yes, I went all sweaty and gross in my gym clothes. I really have no shame.
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE spending money and buying things, but I hate the process of shopping. I get so impatient and just want to find something right away.
It took a few stores till I found what I was looking for but luckily it wasn’t long! My mom also picked up some clothes and I got a new watch! Score
We were starving by the time we were done so we stopped at a lunch place called Field of Greens that serves sandwiches, soup, salads, etc.
I got half of a grilled chicken sandwich on multigrain bread that included Swiss Cheese, Tomato, Homemade Dijon-Balsamic Dressing.
A cup of lentil soup
Unsweet iced tea, which I spilled all over the table before we even started eating.
I’m not a huge chip person but these were good. The nutritional info was good too. The ingredient list wasn’t scary!
The sandwich didn’t knock my socks off but I still enjoyed it. The soup was great too.
We stopped home because it was already almost 3 pm and we had church at 6.
Bentley had a bath and is now even more petable and kissable. I made those words up
Once Bentley was washed I did something CRAZY.
Now, I’ve been thinking about doing this for a LONG time.
I’ve never had the balls to do this, but I finally did it..
I died my hair brown!!!! I’ve always had blonde hair, colored, platinum, ash blonde, but never actually went dark brown. Thankfully I’m super happy with how it looks!
I definitely needed a change and something new. I think it gives me a little more edge too so maybe I won’t look “too commercial” anymore. Many modeling agencies I’ve been to rejected me because of my blonde hair and blue eyes.
I figured what the heck you only live once, and went for it!
What do you guys think?
This is how it used to be, bleach blonde!
Then I changed it to ash blonde.
Now brown! (Btw I did this myself, I’ve ALWAYS gone to a hair stylist so I really took a plunge!)
Do I look older or younger? When I was blonde people would ask me if I was 12 or 14 tops. Not even kidding.
I hope everyone’s having a great Labor Day Weekend!!
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
How old do people think you look?
