Lifestyle Changes Pt. 2

Yesterday, I began to put some of my goals regarding this lifestyle change into action. Mr. Perfect and I were supposed to meet a friend of his to help prepare for his wedding, but the friend was delayed and his arrival was pushed back. With a free day on our hands, Mr. P. and I had a few things we wanted to do to spark some changes in our lives–well, I had a few things to do to spark changes; Mr. Perfect wanted new sandals.

On Friday, I went to Wal-Mart and purchased some essentials for my lifestyle change–a Brita pitcher so that I can have filtered water on hand at home as well as at work; some apple cider vinegar, and some soft scrub to clean my tub. I have to admit, the apple cider vinegar I got was not the one that was recommended and has all of these health benefits for the inside of your body. I didn’t realize this until I got it that it was distilled and I was supposed to get raw. There’s my first black mark in my journey to health and wellness. But I can still use it for my and hair, right? It was a start.

Yesterday, I went a little further. I needed a new flat iron, but I didn’t have a ton of money to spend on one. I love my current one–a Jilbere ceramic flat iron, but the coating on the outside has come off. It would cost upwards of $50 to replace it, so I opted for a cheaper one until I can work back there. I found a good deal on a flat iron at Marshalls–$20 for a flat iron, paddle brush and hair clips. Mr. P. bought me new pumps as part of a buy one, get one 1/2 off sale at Shoe Carnival. I bought some Argan Oil heat protection spray to try on my hair. Obviously yesterday was a day to implement new hair practices for me. I even signed up for the Ulta card to earn points towards discounts on products. I believe they offer classes and demos as well that I may begin taking advantage of in the future.

What is today the day to focus on? Fellowship, faith and friends. I am getting ready to head out to Sunday School in a little while, and we are meeting up with friends after morning service. I’ve been trying to catch up with these particular friends for a while, but with their busy schedule at the hospitals¬† and decorating their new home (not to mention being newlyweds), all of their weekends have been busy. It will be nice to catch up and have a little fun with some friends, especially friends who we fellowship with at church.
