Strength Training class – 60 mins
Elliptical/Bike – 15 mins/15 mins

I just wanted to copy this girl’s workout today. and then eat a bunch of candy and dessert.
I found a class that I like – it’s an simple, old school weight lifting class using dumbbells and a step to hit all the body parts with a really creative name:
It was just strength training moves, no cardio, but I was sweating and felt like I got a good workout in. The only thing is that my knees were sore afterwards so I probably wouldn’t take this class more than once a week.
I promise there will be a running post tomorrow, but until then…
There was some questions about yesterday’s dry shampoo and how to use it.
First of all, is it bad to wash your hair every day?
That depends on the kind of hair you have, says Los Angeles hairstylist Philip B. Hair is a dead by-product of your body and needs to be lubricated. When you wash your hair, you are stripping away the natural oils, which some people shouldn’t do daily.
If you have oily hair, you may need to wash your hair every day to avoid oil buildup or the "greasies." Wash with a clarifying shampoo and avoid heavy conditioners, which will sit on the scalp and clog pores, causing scalp acne.
If your hair is normal or dry, you should be washing every two to three days. Brush your hair before showering to distribute the oils on your scalp. Then shampoo twice: first using a clarifying shampoo and then using a conditioning shampoo.
If you have normal-to-dry hair and you choose to wash it every day, alternate between clarifying and conditioning conditioners to prevent buildup.
I don’t wash mine daily just because I’m lazy and I highlight it often so the ends can get a little dry even though the roots can get super greasy; it’s really a fabulous combination.
I tried to look as Before Tragic as possible.
I washed my hair on Monday and have worked out each day since then. This morning I got home from the gym all sweaty and took the dog for a walk. While we walk it out, I let my hair down and
get wild let it air dry.
You can rinse your hair with water in the shower, but I usually don’t. If I’m going to get it wet, I’ll wash it. After it’s air dried, I spray just the roots with dry shampoo or you can use baby powder; it’s a lot cheaper but a little messier.
I let it sit and look like Snow White while I do my makeup, brush my teeth, interview myself in the mirror, whatever.
Then I’ll run my fingers through it and add more if necessary. Make sure to get the back of your head where you can’t see. And then this elaborate ‘do is done:
If the ends are really dry and skanky, I’ll put a tiny tiny bit of Moroccan Oil on them but not much… it’s called oil for a reason.
This generously called “hairstyle” only works if you don’t mind dirty and sorta messy hair; I prefer it this way because my hair has more body and wave when it’s not clean.
But I have a friend who washes and blow dries her hair every single day because she can’t stand it greasy or wavy. So it’s all up to what you prefer.
*One other thing, I think you can go longer between shampoos if you’re working out outside where the wind dries your hair a little instead of in the gym where it’s like swampbutt.
How often do you wash your hair?
My mom has really dry hair and could go a week without washing hers. I could too although I have greasy hair.
Would you shave your head for $5,000? $10,000?
But you can’t tell anyone about the money. When people ask you have to make up some excuse about loving Sinead O’Connor or something.
