Anyway, to the get to the point (also the title of this post) I, for a lack of better description, play little games with myself. I do things that make me go running. For example, if I were to get up and shower first thing in the morning, then there is very little chance that I will go running. However, if I just get dressed and take Emme to school, then I haven't written off all possibility of running. It goes the same with makeup. If I put on waterproof mascara before I leave the house, then I can still run later without needing to wash my face before I head out. Mostly, it probably comes down to my hair. I don't exactly have the hair (at least not the length) that is "wash and wear". I can either wash it, then blow dry it, then straighten it or I can wash it before I go to bed and in the morning try and tame the frizzy, kinks into some sort of organized curl. If I want to wear my hair curly, then I cannot run in the morning, because it doesn't work to blow dry my hair, I have to sleep on it. If I don't run in the morning, I rarely get a run in later in the day. On the other hand, it is a fairly time-consuming process to dry and straighten my hair... I have to allot a certain time period for that, which I usually don't have, had I already spent the time to go running. So, if there is any chance of me going running, I will not shower before bed, nor right when I get up. Therein lies the dilemma.
For example: Monday I went running, showered and straightened my hair. Tuesday I had planned to go running, so took a bath and shaved my legs, but didn't wash my hair... not too big of deal every other day for hair washing is actually good for your hair. Well, I didn't go running, but planned to on Wednesday. Wednesday morning we went to story time, so I skipped the shower and donned a hat, with plans to run in the afternoon (ha ha). When that didn't pan out (Emme & I went shopping) I had to take a shower (insert title here) before I went to bed. So I woke this morning (Thursday) with somewhat well positioned curls, not wanting to ruin them (since we have Emme's play date and I'll want to look respectable), I skipped the run again. Now tomorrow, my hair will basically be done when I wake, just need a touch up, will I really want to ruin it?
