Here’s the adorable Mershauna (First Wave) … Back to School!
by Mershauna of The Dancing Optimist
Man, talk about a crazy month. Finally moved in and almost registered for classes. It’s a wonder i’ve been able to keep up with anything else. Out of pure laziness I’ve been wearing a lot of braid out buns, which have allowed me to moisturize daily. I took advantage of Labor Day weekend and decided to henna my hair. I believe that it was my fourth henna and this time around i definitely feel a difference in my hair as far as being stronger. I love henna … the process is so fun. My boyfriend and his roommate found it amusing also.
As far as fitness and health, I have it pretty easy. As a dance major, I take at least 2 dance classes a day, each being an hour and a half long. Starting this week, I’ll be up to three a day. Currently, I’m just focused on eating right. I’m still sticking to the no fast food thing. I’m really proud of that. I will say I fell back as far as going to the gym lately. I found a new love in cycling, but I haven’t done it lately. Rehearsal’s keeping me busy in the evenings, but im going to suck it up and get back into the gym.

Wooh! 3 hours of dancing a day?! Now that’s some working out for your a@#$!! LOL!
Do you have specific goals for September? If so, how are you doing on them given that half the month has almost flown by already?!?!
