On Saturday morning, it was SOOOO cold outside! Denver had gone from warm fall weather to super-cold snow-like weather! While it didn’t snow in the low country on Saturday, the 32 degree weather could have easily brought it!
Just the same, Saturday morning always means one thing: WEIGH IN. And, for the first time ever, I completely overslept and missed my 8am appointment. Eeks!
Amalia called at 8:30am to check on me (and wake me up) and I quickly got up and headed to Jenny.
We spent the majority of my visit talking and chatting… and re-capping my visit to Salt Lake City. All in all, my eating was solidly on track. Aside from the free cheese and crackers the hotel sent up on Monday night, I ate Subway for dinner and worked out several nights. My weigh in should have been ON POINT.
I went to weigh in on the scale and was super-excited to have discovered that I was down EXACTLY one pound! Woo hooooooooo!
And then, I went to MyFitnessPal to log my weight, and found out that my weight loss this week was a SCAM! Last week, I had lost exactly one pound, but it appeared that we forgot to log that weight at Jenny Craig. So, as a result, I found out that this was my true weight loss for the week:
This Week’s Loss: -0.0 lbs
Total Weight Loss: -84.6 lbs
What a bummer! Oh well, I’m counting on a strong weight loss this week. I’ll be home all week and should have an opportunity to get to all of my favorite classes this week. I should be completely on track!
Random Beauty Tip:
On Saturday night, I went out to dinner with a friend of mine and was so looking forward to catching up! As usual, I had spent some time on Pinterest on Saturday morning and had found this tutorial for my hair. I decided to try it out and see if I could create these gorgeous curls. You know them, those beachy gorgeous curls that everyone on TV has… that real women just can’t pull off.
Now, I have to tell you that I’ve tried MANY different techniques that I’ve found on Pinterest. The one where you pin curl your hair and then flat iron it, the one where you braid it. I’ve bought weird clamp-less curling irons… and regardless, my hair didn’t even come close to looking like the girl in the pictures.
Maybe what made this one work is that I use the very same “trusty ghetto Conair curling iron” that this girl uses… I followed her technique and it TOTALLY worked! So, if you’ve been trying to do this (and failing miserably like me) try this tutorial.
Note: Next time I will add more hairspray. I don’t have the coarse hair she does, and my curls didn’t stay. Even as these pictures were being taken… the curl was falling. Also, I think it would look even more like the girl in the video if my hair was longer….
I also wash my hair every single day (or it looks awful), so I couldn’t relate with her commentary about the curls lasting 5 days at all.
Do you have any tips for fabulous wavy curls like this? Any hairspray recommendations (since I need one)?
