Working out and Wearing a Twist Out!

Good Afternoon,

Well I have been continuing with my Walking up to 4 miles per day and eating healthy low calorie meals and snacks.  I am feeling very motivated and I would like to reach goal by Memorial Day.

I have been wearing my hair in a twist out since Sunday with re-twisting in about 15 twists each night.  I am walking and sweating bullets in the morning and sometimes I will take a cool dryer before untwisting to ensure my hair dries.   Sometimes it is still damp but lately with the percipitation (rain/drizzle) then I am going to let it do what it do, which is swell and get bigger by the end of the day.

Today I have one side pinned over and I see that my edges are still a issue that needs continued nurturing.   I can see the short curlies coming  along but the volume and density is not quite there.   I will continue to do my castor oil and vitamin E along my edges to achieve the thickness and make sure that I do not pull that hair to tightly.

My scalp has been a little itchy and I bought some TJ Tea Tree Shampoo and Conditioner and I am hoping that it will sooth the scalp.  My shea moisture hall came in and I have to give it a bit more time to see if I like what I have bought. (at least it didn't cost too much)

Well Ladies and Gents I will get back to work and give an Update on Monday to let you know how many pounds lost and hopefully I can get a measuring tape and do my measurements as well.   I may not put them on here but I will put my weight gain/loss.

Have a great Week.


  1. Just checking back to read any postings you may have written.

    I’ve been following and enjoying your blog for a while now and would like to invite you to visit and perhaps follow me back. Sorry I took so long for the invitation.

  2. You are so motivated!!! I wish I could muster up the energy to get moving too. Maybe my smoothies and supplements will make my butt get in gear!!

    Hair looks great (as usual) and don't sweat the edges. When I was wearing headbands a lot I saw some thinning with my edges but just like you I gave them some TLC and they are better than ever.
