I looked like a hooker

Last time I got my hair done, my stylist asked if she could use my haircut to enter into an industry-wide contest. I frequently get stopped by random people who comment on how much they like my hair, that I happily agreed to help her out. She cut it a bit more funky, did my makeup and we had a fun little photo shoot. Today, I had an appointment and she had copies of the pictures we took. Yeah. I looked like a hooker. My eye makeup was pretty out there. I don't usually wear that much makeup, so I always think it looks like a lot when someone else does it, but this was very much like I should be standing on a corner somewhere.

Today's workout with Ricky was a little less intense. We did some sprinting/explosion exercises and did a body workout. No weights, just using my own body to get stronger. It never seems like much when I'm doing it, but I'm usually sore the next day.

I hurt like hell today (both sides) and I think that's what put me in such an irritable mood today. Someone from the office brought in tiramisu this afternoon and boy, did it give me a sugar high. I was seriously almost twitching I was so wired. So irritable and wired... funny combo.

But... it's almost a long weekend and I'm looking forward to it!

Ah...I think it was the caffeine from the expresso that gave you that twitch and sugar high. It does that to me too.

Don't forget that ice is your friend.

After taking a year off, I was very close to the point of no return. Read: I was starting to enjoy sitting on my ass drinking. So, I hired a personal trainer to get back into working out and doing it safely. I was planning on doing Detroit last year, so I decided I wanted to make my comeback with Detroit. It just so happened that Ricky was a running coach.

And, I love my stylist. I go to Salon Escape in Novi (Beck and Grand River). Kathy P is my stylist and she does a great job.
