2010 is ALMOST OVER...ok, we have 3 months left, but still, it feels like time has flown by! Kimmaytube showcased her quarter-way progress in a video last week. That video inspired me to do some length checking of my own :)
July 2010 October 2010*
I'm not mad about it! Seeing this bit of growth led me to reinforce some of my original goals for the final home stretch!
Goal #1: Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. In July, I stated that I was going to moisturize daily. Have I been doing this? NO. I have a tough time with this because I do all the work required to stretch my hair, and to add water to it totally destroys all of the stretch work. Moving forward, I will try to moisturize with butter/oil mixes and a *light* mist of water.
Goal #2: Wear protective styles. I've done a pretty good job with this one. However, I'm starting to wonder: Are all protective styles created equal? Last week, I wore a tuck & roll for 2 days and my hair felt SO EXTREMELY moisturized - I thought I was dealing with someone else's hair. Because of this, I wonder if certain protective styles keep moisture locked in better than others, more on this later.
FYI, I haven't seen as many fairy knots this go around...not sure why, but I'll take it!
Non-hair goals that are VERY necessary for me to document
Goal #3: Stay active and join a gym. It's getting cold outside, and I know I'm not going to run when it's 40 degrees and pitch black. I do start a basketball league on Thursday - YAY - which guarantees one good workout/week. However, one workout a week is not enough by my standards, so I need to pay up.
Goal #4: Call a friend. I talked with a college friend of mine this weekend and I LOVED IT. I'm bad at remembering to call people (yes, I'm REALLY bad with this kind of stuff), however I hate excuses so I'm just leaving it as it is.
I don't know about you, but...I see the light!
