On Saturday a few work friends and I went to go investigate the Soul Cycle hype for ourselves. I've seen so many bloggers and IGers praising the church of Soul Cycle that I was really curious to see what it was all about. Armed with a promo code for a free Soul Cycle class, we signed up for the 8:30am Saturday class (aggressive on a Saturday morning? yep. But literally almost every other weekend class was sold out).
So Soul Cycle -- I'll save more details for a full review, but the gist is that I enjoyed the class but didn't LOVE the overall experience (crowded studio, price, vibe). Regardless, it was a really great workout to kickoff the weekend, and a great pre-cursor for brunch with friends :) After, we did a quick pit stop at the inaugural weekend of the Green City Farmer's Market, and then I snagged a Divvy bike to ride home and shower.
Next on my agenda was a haircut and and highlights, both of which were much-anticipated. The huge bummer is that it took nearly 5 hours (FIVE HOURS) because I am cheap and I go to a hair school nearby. Usually they do a really good job, but this time I left with barely-there highlights and a blowout that made me look like head of the PTA. Enjoy this photo of my post-haircut reaction:

After the haircut I headed out for deep dish with some college friends in town (worth it), and then headed home and watched like four episodes of Married at First Sight like the party animal I am. PS Uh, if you watch that show can we talk about it because WHAT?
Sunday involved starting the yoga with 90-minutes of Birkam yoga and realizing about 10 minutes in that I don't really like Bikram yoga which made the next 80 minutes fun. If you haven't done Bikram, it's a type of yoga performed in a 105 degree room that involves 26 poses with some breathing exercises for added fun. I can only do about 3 poses correctly (one of which is laying on my back motionless), I've usually broken into a full sweat before the end of the warm up breaths, and I always get to a point where my face is sweating so much that when my head is hanging down the sweat drips up my nose and it feels like I'm being waterboarded. It feels good afterwards but seriously. So sweaty.
After yoga I grocery-shopping for the first time in two weeks after realizing that the only items in my fridge were wine, mustard, eggs and a lemon (that is not an exaggeration). Went home to shower up for a mid-afternoon coffee date, which involved styling my hair so as to not look like the wife of a southern senator.
|LOL HOW IS THIS EVEN THE SAME HAIRCUT.|
Post date (thanks mostly to the magic of coffee) I forced myself to do laundry (accomplishment) AND put it away (bigger accomplishment). I finished catching up on Married at First Sight while I food-prepped lunches for the week, packed my bag for the gym this morning and called it a night.
Whew! How was your weekend? Ever had a bad hair experience? How'd you fix it?
