I am not doing the couch25k program this time around. I really just want to go at my own pace.
I discovered the app "mapmyrun" and this has also served as inspiration. I love tracking my progress. Last year I mainly ran at the track near my house but so far this year, I'm doing neighborhood streets. I feel like a hamster at the track lol. The neighborhood is better for me because I'm big on scenery! I have been enjoying looking at people's gardens and landscaping on my adventures. I've also discovered 2 little parks near me.
Anyways my only goal so far is to walk at least 30 minutes/ day for the next couple weeks. After I've done that I will probably move on to jogging.

The loc knots lasted for about 2-3 weeks and I ended up enjoying the style more than I thought I would.
Besides loc knots, I also did my signature braid out when I re-twisted my roots last week.
Lastly, today I wanted to try the straight hair look like "curlynugrowth" and "afronique" of youtube have done with their locs. The style defintely has potential, but me being myself couldn't let it set long enough. i took the rollers out after about an 1hr lol. I could see the potential though
Other, than that my hair has been chilling. I don't do much with it, in fact I don't even recall my everyday style lol
I did a search last week and determined that i most likely have diastisi recti. It's when your stomach muscles separate and cause a small hernia. For some, it warrants surgery. I would probably qualify for surgery, but I really don't want to expose myself to the risk of surgery without first trying exercise. I also learned that traditional abdominal exercises can worsen this hernia. I think I will be fine doing any type of exercise because again, I have had is for 3 years and haven't had any problems. I literally have no stomach muscle. It's just mush and it feels vulnerable and disgusting.
Anyways, I'm not 100% sure of what I will do to "fix" this, but I we Ted to share a youtuber I found who had the same problem And actually had surgeryhttp://m.youtube.com/index?desktop_uri=%2F&gl=US#/profile?user=ItsMeMesh
And finally some pics of my stomach
I know, it probably doesn't look that bad to you all. But trust me in person it's evident. Especially if I am distended. I really hope exercises will help me.
