P.O.E.: Peace on Earth and Purity of Essence. 100 points to Sue for providing the answer! For those of you who have no idea what all of this means, I genuinely feel sorry for you because that means you’ve been deprived of one of the best movies of all time, “Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.” I mean, seriously, go find a copy and watch it NOW! “Dr. Strangelove” is one (there are many) of the movies from which I quote quite a bit in day-to-day conversation, so it’s very important that the people in my life understand these obscure references when they arise.
Today’s workout was the last of Week 1 for the Two Hundred Sit Ups program, the details of which can be seen below.
Sit up workout details (Day 3, first column):
- 6, 7, 6, 6, 26; performed with 60 second break between reps
- 51 total
- I just noticed that I accidentally followed the first column instead of the usual second, so today’s numbers will be lower than normal.
Apart from doing my scheduled workout I also got my hair cut again. It’s a bit shorter than what I wanted/expected, but I think I like it. I’ll probably let it grow out and cut it again (but not as much) in early August before I ship off to boot camp. Enough talk about my hair, I guess I should show you a picture already :)
It’s not the best picture to showcase my new hair cut, but that’s all I’ve got right now. I’ll make sure to post a better one when it comes along. I almost forgot to mention that I learned a nifty styling trick from Melissa (the lady who usually cuts my hair) at the salon. Since I won’t be able to take my own hair products to boot camp, she suggested that I use a penny size amount of lotion (if the Navy gives me lotion, that is), as a replacement for gel/styling wax, to tame my hair after a shower. I would never have thought to put lotion in my hair, but I’m sure that the tip will come in handy if/when my hair becomes unruly. Tomorrow’s post will cover the last push up workout for Week 1 and another acronym guessing game that’s a bit easier than P.O.E.–make sure to check in again! In the meantime, have you ever cut your hair really short before? Any tips on styling (besides lotion) without any products?
