Smooth Sailing

Posted: September 19, 2009 at 9:47 pm

Happy weekend! And happy carb-up day to me! Even if I probably "shouldn't" be taking it after doing an extra one earlier this week with my mini-meltdown. Oh well - I just know to get right back into the swing of things and my plan so I won't try to make up for my negligence a couple days ago. Things are going so much better again. I feel so refreshed and have noticed a BIG change in my attitude and how I am handling prep after refocusing my thoughts on the bigger parts of life 😉 I am going to write out my God letter and post it on the fridge with some motivational  Bible verses as well to keep this shift in thinking front and center. 

In other news, after a complete day of rest yesterday along with LOTS of foam rolling, deep massage, and stretching I am a new woman today and feel so so so much better. I was even able to hit up spin this morning and get a good sweat on. It felt oh so good. Then, this afternoon, I continued to smooth things out -and quite literally. I did my Brazilian trial run! I was SO nervous and afraid it was going to be gruesome pain. wasn't! At all. It hurt, yeah. But just like waxing eyebrows it was a brief sharp sting that went away immediately. I may consider these being more regular even because it wasn't half bad. So, things are going smoothly here. Pun - intended! Time to keep on grooving.....

    Glad you're feeling back on track! AND I am glad the "grooming" went well – it's ALL about finding a good waxer. I've never gone Brazilian but I've had really painful and not at all painful experiences!
