GOC Update: Icela’s Week One

Hey guys,

As you all know, last week marked the start of my participation in Hairscapade’s 6-month GOC.  The challenge involved both Fitness and Hair Health.  All last week I kept you all posted on the workouts I’ve been doing and I’m actually VERY proud of myself for sticking to a regimen for an entire week!!!  I can’t even tell you how long its been since I’ve been able to do that!  Go me!!!!  I’m going to keep that momentum going by doing a “weigh in” next weekend to see if I’ve at least dropped a pound 🙂

Here’s a quick recap of what I did:
Monday: REST
Tuesday: Biceps & Triceps + 30 minutes of Cardio
Wednesday: Legs + 30 minutes of Cardio
Thursday: Shoulders & Back + 30 minutes of Treadmill
Friday: Cardio ~ Billy Blanks’ Ultimate Tae Bo
Saturday: Chest
Sunday: REST

Today, I started the cycle over again by doing Biceps & Triceps, but no Cardio.  Tomorrow I’ll be hitting Legs again.

As far as my hair is concerned, I washed it accidentally when I meant to simple co-wash it (long story).  Also, instead of just twisting up my hair and letting it air dry, I decided to try something different . . . . a Twist and Curl.  A Twist and Curl is when you two-strand twist your hair, then place each twist in rods and/or flexi rods.

Here are my results after removing the rods and separating the twist a bit to create a puff.

I’m all thumbs when it comes to my hair, so I was pretty surprised and proud that the style came out decently.  I over did the unraveling of the twists a bit so the top got a bit frizzy, but overall I’m pretty happy with the look and plan to rock it more often.

Don’t forget, you can learn how Icela did the rest of August and follow her progress at www.shapelyalterations.com!!
