monday- 4 miles on TM
Yesterday was a great run. I had good music and just got to cruise. I’m going to start building up some mileage so I can run The Haunted Half in Salt Lake without wanted to die. I love this race because it’s not all downhill(that hurts my knees) and it’s in the fall. Running in the crisp air is the best.
J and I headed over to my SIL’s house for her birthday. I hung out with the boys so she could have some alone time to get done whatever she wanted. J always has fun with his cousins especially when they magically both share with each other haha
After we met up with my MIL to go shopping. She got me and Whit gift cards for our birthdays so we checked out the outlets. I found a cute shirt, and I’m still on the lookout for the perfect winter boots(last years broke). My MIL watched the boys while we looked around, they love her!
I have had a few emails about how I curl my hair. I made a video awhile back, but I’m so not tech savvy and cannot figure out for the life of me how to upload it on here. So I guess you get these crappy pics step by step.
First off, I have very thin hair. I curl it all the time to make it look thicker, so what works for me may not work for you if you have super thick hair or even normal hair for that matter ha. I usually wash my hair every other day. I can’t not wash my hair on a day I workout…I sweat too much for dry shampoo to fix.
I split my hair in 2 sections. The right side is my washed hair. It naturally has a bit of a wave to it. The left I’ve already curled. I use a 1″ curling iron from Target $10 here It’s a a lot cheaper than a curling wand and it still works great.
I take a thicker section to make the curls more relaxed and wavy. If you want the curls more tight then do smaller sections of hair. I wrap my hair around the iron and then clamp down. Sometimes I just wrap it around the curling iron without putting my hair in it for an even more relaxed look.
Then I let it sit for about 10 sec(longer if you have thicker hair, but if you have a wand don’t burn your hair off like this girl, I seriously laughed so hard at this, so sad haha).
I point the curling iron down and wrap the hair away from my face. I point the curling iron down so that there’s not a kink in the curl and so the curls are towards the end of my hair creating a more natural look.
I forgot to take an after pic, so here’s one from a few months ago.
If I can ever figure out my video I’ll post that ha
Let me know what other questions you guys have. I love answering them!
