I've decided that I would work out a whole lot more if it wasn't for my HAIR!
It takes me a good 10 minutes to dry my hair and another 15-20 to flat-iron it. Add to that a good 5-10 minutes to do a little make-up and there is a grand total of about 30-40 minutes worth of WORK just to be presentable each day. Even on the "quick! throw-it-in-a-pony-tail" days...I still have to dry it and do make up, so at LEAST 20 minutes.
I can't tell you how many times this whole little process has interfered with my workout. I either don't get "ready" till WAYYY late in the day because I'm holding off until after my workout
I take a shower and get ready first thing in the morning and then I REALLY REALLY don't want to work out that day because I would ruin everything and have to start ALL OVER again.
Yesterday after church Matt wanted to do a workout together and I refused. Even though I wanted to workout and I had plenty of energy and NEEDED to workout...I had gotten up before church and taken lots of time to really do my hair up cute and my make up and I knew I had to be at the kids school first thing Monday morning and I wanted it to last. If we'd worked out, I would have had to do allll that work again-twice in one day. Ugh!
I know, it's a lousy, lame excuse but it's the truth and I bet I'm not the only one who feels this way?!!!?
You might say...well, just workout first thing in the morning every day and then the problem is solved. Yes, well, I do have other things I have to do and a lot of times that means I can't get my workout in until I drop Grant off at Kindergarten at 12:30 pm.
Anyway, there is no good answer for this, I don't think. I'm just on here whining and wondered if any of you ever have this same problem?
And while I'm on the topic of hair....Oh My Goodness my hair is growing at warp speed! I just got it trimmed about 1 1/2 in. a couple of weeks ago but it is so long that it is like a whip when I exercise. Once it gets sweaty (which is in the first 5 minutes if I'm doing Insanity) then it SMACK-SMACK-SMACK's me in the back with every jump and hop.
I've tried hats, braids, high pony-tails and low pony-tails, even side pony-tails. I can't figure out what to do with it. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I don't want to cut it. I really like it being long except for during workouts.
I can just hear Matt right now if he were reading this "do you want some cheese to go with that whine?" :o)
wow...I said "workout" a LOT in this post! (and that sort of stuff really bugs me) sorry!
