So as you all know, i do i do 6 mos protective styles during the fall and winter months, and 6 mos out styles during the spring and summer months. Well, this 6 month protective challenge left my edges in HORRIBLE shape! especially around my edges! *sad face* So my Goals are: 1.daily edges cream. I'm using 2.daily satin cap I may have to adjust this one. i dont think it's benefiting my edges. I'm going to keep an eye on it though 3.Keeping it out with minimal manipulation. i make my wash and goes, last about a week. which is REALLY great. i love my hair now a days. There was a time i was REALLY going through some issues with loving my hair. i kept cutting it, and not being patient. But two almost two years ago i challenged myself to make it AT LEAST two years without cutting my hair to see how long it would get. and it has far exceeded my expectations. i LOVE IT! FINALLY it's working for me. #longhairdontcare lool. loool FITNESS: I have set/joined a few challenges for myself. And just like my hair, it just want to stick with it, to see what will happen. i want to see if my body really will improve and look/ feel better. so i'm doing the 200 squats/ 200 crunches build up challeneg. http://www.twohundredsquats.com/week1.html http://www.twohundredsitups.com/week1.html i'm on day three now. so far, so sore but i'm getting through it. Right now i wog ( a made up word for my combination walk/ jog that i do lol ) about 1 mile in 20 minutes in the mornings. i like that because its short. i am supposed to wog in the morning AND evening. But with the kids, now, I dont have time/ energy to do extra cardio in the evening. However i WANT to do it this way because it's better for the body to do multiple workouts in the day, and it's shorter. But i may have to chuck it up and wog for a full hour (3 miles) in the morning because with everything now it's hard for me to stop and give up another 20 minutes in the evening. My goal is to build up to 3 miles in 30 minutes. 6 miles a day. i want to be able to get those 6 miles a day in by wogging to and from work daily (it's about 3 miles). MY ULTIMATE GOAL is to run the Baltimore 1/2 marathon ( 13 miles ) in October. But we will see how that goes, with training and all.
hmmmm.....the book was good because it was a Alex Cross mystery, they are USUALLY good. However, this was my first read by James Patterson, and some things in the book just didnt match well or align with the theme. The book is about the president's kids being kidnapped and Alex Cross TRYING to be a active detective in the investigation and recovery but for some reason, he cant get his foot in the door. Someone doesnt want him there. There is also a 2nd story line centered on a married couple who belong to a Saudi Arabian terrorist group. What irritated me was that, you EXPECTED this terrorist group to be the culprit behind the kidnapping but it wasnt, it was some regular Joe Schmo guy. Which I KNOW is a good twist to regularity and expectation. But i feel like the reality of some REGULAR dude being able to kidnap the president's kids is close to NON- EXISTENT! That's VERY unrealistic in my opinion, and therefore put this book, in the "fantasy" genre for me. That was just stupid. It would have been nice to maybe see dude in cahoots with the terrorist group maybe as a traitor to the American government because of how he felt about his own son's death. I just dont feel one man could pull that off alone which made it a little phoney to me. But my Goal is to read EVERY James Patterson ALex Cross book, in order.
This was a GREAT book given to me to read by a coworker. The way she described it was "GIRL! It's got a little bit of scandell, sex, and the twist at the end is whats REALLY gonna get chu!" lmaoooo....and it REALLY did. I enjoyed it. Written in the 70's based off of the time during WWII . And you know how i feel about books turned into movies...LOVE IT!!
