Fitness Friday: A Rare Progress Picture

30 lb weight loss progress picture - Longing 4 Length

I haven't updated on my personal weight loss journey in a while, mainly because I've been stalling at the same weight for the last two months.  This is not at all a plateau, I simply have been off my game and a bit unfocused truthfully.  I realize I could be a lot further along had I truly pushed myself and was a bit disappointed in myself as 2013 comes to a close.  However, I was getting dressed the other morning in an outfit that began with … [Read more...]

Wash Day: Rollerwrap with Capelli Halo Rollers

halo rollers review

Being that my workout schedule means my hair stays cute for about two days max, I intended to have it braided for wig wear this week.  However, I was asked to review a set of rollers from Capelli Care.  Once I visited their site, I was ecstatic to accept because the rollers are similar to my beloved plastic mesh rollers which significantly cut down on my dryer time.  Some of you may remember my only complaint about the Diane plastic mesh … [Read more...]

I've mentioned the addition of tennis to my regular routine several times throughout July and began sharing a few photos of my meals via Instagram (@EbonyCPrincess) so you probably realize that I am on a weight loss journey (again).  I wanted to hold off on making any formal announcements about it until I was settled into a rhythm and knew for sure that this wasn't yet another false start!  After I lost ten pounds in a month, I feel very … [Read more...]

Fitness First, Hair Second.

Yes, I actually wear a swimming cap at the pool.

I have felt downright BUMMY this summer...and trust these three months are usually MY time to stunt a lil bit!  I freakin love the heat of summer, but since exercising so vigorously multiple times per week it has been impossible to keep my hair styled.  As I've said, I play tennis about four, sometimes five times per week for a 2.5 hour minimum.  That is a huge time commitment (12+ hours per week), plus the time it takes to drive to and from … [Read more...]
