For most, if not all, of the moms out there, you know oh to well the experience of luscious, healthy hair during pregnancy. The lovely joy it can bring to a girl who has never had that kind of hair growth in her life! Only to be shut down by the blow of postpartum hair loss.
Whether it be by the chunk or at the temples, we’re all horrified and annoyed by the endless amount of hair in our brushes/combs, bathroom drains, pillows and floors! But most of all, the fact that our heads look like a complete disaster!!!
On top of all of that, if you’re nursing, there is only so little that you can resort to since taking certain medications can affect your baby.
I for one found it extremely distressing and ultimately gave up and instead of trying to hide my balding temples, I just decided to live with them and wait it out. I got used to the comments from my friends and resorted to the ever-so-faithful bun and combed my hair once every two weeks! YES! I swear by it! And for those of you who have curly hair, you know how much of a tangled mess that turns out to be!
However, that did not sit well with my boyfriend and he sought out remedies for my situation until we decided to try pre/postnatal vitamins after doing some research; some women shared that it helped.
Managing to work out before my friend’s wedding, then my cousin’s wedding and even my trip to Tobago was possible and now that I have my own wedding coming up it’s been near impossible to continue!!
It upsets me to the bone but it’s hard when you have a very active 7 month old to look after mostly on your own while tending to your daily chores, planning for a wedding that’s one month away, working part-time and preparing for school (two months away). So after many attempts I’ve decided to put my insanity on hold and basically do shorter 5-20 minute workouts that I can easily fit into my days.
Now, I ‘m not going to completely stop my insanity workouts, when the time allows I will definitely do them but once the honeymoon is over I’ll be back on the Insanity train!!!!
I am determined to be totally transformed, if not by September, by the end of the year. I must enter 2015, God’s willing, fit and toned!! Extremely sexified!! lol
Also, I do plan on doing another round of Insanity once I’m done. I won’t stop till I get my dream body!! Currently, I am 95 lbs; I aim to range between 100 and 115 and hope to get there by piling on some lean muscle mass and of course I must have that toned tummy of my dreams!
Until I fully get back on track yall go on and continue digging deeper! 😉
