December GOC Update: Mershauna


by Mershauna (First Wave) of The Dancing Optimist

Wow, I can’t believe that I forgot an update for the past three months! Unacceptable. Time is really flying. this semester seems to have flown by. Finals were crazy and emotional in the dance department. People were freaking out and I was no exception *lol*. My hair has held up very nicely with my altered winter routine. I was even complimented on it by a hairstylist at a hair show that I did. I love when hard work is appreciated *lol*. During finals, I didn’t have time to work-out with all my papers and comp pieces that I have to choreograph. Fortunately though, my daily classes kept me in shape. Over break, I have been working out with the help of YouTube and my brand new kettle bell that Jon bought me for Christmas :).

I ended up giving my hair a trim after doing the hair show. I was worried about what all that manipulation did to my ends, so I just got rid of them. Also, it was the first  time that I cut my hair curly. I like this technique simply because I don’t have to worry about making it even. I just trimmed each curl individually and tried to cut the same amount on each one. I really liked the result. And it was easy. I’ve been DC’ing my hair with mayo, honey and brahmi simply because I ran out of conditioner and haven’t had the chance to replace it and it has worked pretty well.

So, 2012 is the jump off to me getting serious about my body. I want to be healthier, leaner, with more muscle. Jon and I gave up red meat this year ,which wont be too hard for me. I did it in the past for 6 years. Jon, on the other hand, is a major steak guy *lol*. I am going to start running soon, which I am excited and anxious about.

I’m so excited for this new year. I can’t wait to reach all of my goals!
