So this has been one of those standard there is no down time to be had. Friday night I just needed to let my brain decompress but since then I've been on the go. Let me just start this by saying I didn't even get closed to the gym before yesterday. But as I had planned I got up a little earlier and climbed four flights of stairs to go to yoga before swimming. The twisting wasn't as bad as thinking about my breathing. I tend to always breath the exact opposite way people tell me to do when I am learning something the first time. Turns out I started out that way again. But I caught on soon enough and started to enjoy the stretching and the new challenges my body was trying to respond to. I was glad there were fans in the room (and that the woman next to me turned the on) cause it felt like I was out in the Texas sun for a bit based on the amount of sweat that came off of my forehead. Got a makeshift massage towards the end of class which was nice and was told I had done a great job for my first class. I took her at her word because really I had to scoot on down to the pool. It was a good lesson. We spent most of the time in the deep end and trying to swim around without feeling like I was going to drown. I enjoyed myself and did a few laps in the shallow end before coming home to start on my hair and promptly falling asleep.
As I alluded to before my brain was tired as hell. My body joined the tired ranks after my workout. I did manage to coat the length of my hair with conditioner and my scalp with Strong Roots before covering up my hair in a plastic bag and bonnet. My intention was to wash it out quickly and then get to the other stuff I had to do. No such luck. I woke up a few hours later and just got to work on my grading after I grabbed a bit to eat. Seven hours later I was done reading two classes worth of painful reading and giving feedback. I nodded off a few hours later after debating washing my hair at 2 in the morning. I woke up around ten, washed my hair including my chlorine stripping combo before letting my hair deep condition for about 90 minutes with the Dr. Miracle's. I rinsed my hair out and t-shirt dried from about noon to 5 when I finally finished grading all tests, another class's writings and given them feedback along with doing early alerts for school. 5 is way too late to do anything with my hair except let it air dry so I got up, LOC'd, detangled with my 4 combs lol, took a few photos and am now relaxing. My dinner is marinating now and sooner or later I'll get up to cook it lol. Depending on how my hair dries I may blow it out slightly and then flat iron it before work.
The hair loss for this week. Seeing a lot of gray in there lol.
This is me with freshly dentagled hair
