Hi again, blog. And hi, 2014.
I’ve been pretty neglectful of my little corner of the Internet. Whoops. I’ve been in a bit of a holiday haze since Thanksgiving.
I have a somewhat good reason though. I finally took the GMAT! I’ve been studying for the test on and off for about six months and finally decided in October that it was time to take it. I booked it for December 23rd (pretty much the last possible date I could take it before the holidays) and started studying a lot – which is also why I was trying to do more morning workouts in November and December. I got a score that I’m happy with, and now I’m really relieved to be done with it. And now I feel like I have so much free time!
So what am I going to do with that free time? I would not be me if I said anything other than work out, of course.
To be specific, lots of Refine Method! I signed up for their $25 Class Program in August when it was being offered and committed to 27 classes in three months. It got me to go regularly and I really fell in love with the method. In November, they announced a new pricing structure. It was the last month they’d be offering an unlimited monthly membership for $285, so I jumped on that opportunity and committed for three months (the maximum). I took 13 classes in December and am hoping to top that in January!
Speaking of Refine, Laura (who I finally met on Friday!) wrote this really excellent post about Refine and how it’s become her “thing.” I actually had a similar post planned for this week, but she sums up what I want to say perfectly (and in funnier words), so just go read her post for pretty much exactly why I love Refine.
In other news, I made a big spontaneous decision on Saturday. I got bangs!
I’d been thinking about getting them for two days – which I know is probably not considered spontaneous by most people’s standards, but is very spontaneous by my standards. Usually I think any kind of life decision (yes, bangs count as a life decision) through for a few weeks before going through with it. Also, I actually ended up finding and going to a hair salon that specializes in Asian hair (#asianhairproblems) before I was 100% sure that I wanted bangs. I never ever make an appointment without being sure of what I want (even though it’s usually just a two-inch trim). When I told my sister this, she was completely shocked. My wild life, people.
Anyway, it felt a little weird at first – like I was wearing a wig, kind of? But this morning, I styled them myself and I feel good about them! I actually think they might turn out to be lower maintenance than both my stylist and I thought – which is a huge bonus in my book.
Anyway, here’s where my bangs and I will be working out this week:
Monday: Refine Method
Wednesday: TRX at Flex Studios or Rest
Thursday: Yoga Vida and maybe Refine Method
Friday: Refine Method or Rest
Saturday: Refine Method and maybe Yoga Vida
Sunday: The Fhitting Room and maybe Yoga Vida
Oh, did I say lots of Refine Method? Because I really meant a shit ton of Refine Method.
