Food, Hair, and Super Bowl

Hello Curlies & Non Curlies,

Yesterday, I spent the day with mi madre (my mom), mi sobrino (my nephew), and mi tia (my aunt); I love Sundays that include family, food, fun, and football!  I made mom some infused detox water which is spring water with slices of lemon, lime, cucumbers, and mint leaves for the week.  I love water in any form but infusing water with fruit is great for those who have a problem with drinking water.  This particular mixture helps with water weight management, bloating, appetite control, hydration, and digestion.  I let it sit for at least 30 minutes before drinking.

I even cooked my vegetables for the week, kale and collard greens.  I don’t diet; I practice clean eating, and incorporate it into my everyday lifestyle.  Even if I didn’t like something, I made myself eat it especially if it is good for me.  For example, I didn’t like raw onions or carrots but I’ll eat them cooked.  Ironically, I cook almost everything with onions now, I love my carrots also raw and cooked.  Life is about change.

Clean Eating Gets Results

For Football:   I saw the score twice and then that last play where the Seahawks could’ve pulled it off, but that was all.  That was the highlight of me watching the Super Bowl; my nephew trumps the game any day!!  I did make sure I wore some lime green to represent the Seattle Seahawks even though I’m a Cowboy’s fan.  I’ve never been fond of the Patriots.

Twist Out

For Hair:  I went swimming this week, and had to wash my hair even though I wore a swimming cap.  I co-washed and deep conditioned with a mixture of conditioner and lemon juice.  After rinsing, I put some As I Am leave-in conditioner on before applying some Gel Me, Moisturize Me, and Grow Me (Oil) in that order.  I two stranded twisted about 11 medium sections, wrapped the ends around my finger, and pinned.  The next morning I untwisted, pulled apart once, and lifted my roots with a pick.  I love the way my curls come out this way.  Yes, the curls are tight, but I’ve never minded the shrinkage.

How did you spend your Super Bowl?  Until next time……Shauntay
