Hair Freedom: Do What You Want!

Hey Mocha Family,

How are you doing with your hair?  These days I'm feeling free in a way I've never felt before.  Some things I thought were so important in the past just don't matter to me anymore.  I'm in a good place.

Is Natural Hair Care too Hard?

Hey Mocha Family,

Has it always been this hard or is my busy life crowding out my passion for natural hair?  I am so glad I decided to do a set of box braids for my girls.  For some reason I thought up dos fashioned with big braids, were more dedicated and creative.  They didn't last as long as box braids, and I was constantly beating myself up when the take down was long overdue.



It's back to basics for me, ya'll. I'm still learning a lot.



Don't over complicate things.  If it works do it.  Admire the crowd, but do your own thing.

ONE YEAR Lock Update

Hey Mocha Family,

I can't believe it's already been a year.  When I started these locks I didn't want to become too attached, after being utterly ready to chop my first set.  One morning, I got up, walked into my bathroom and started chopping.  With little warning,  I was done and had no regrets.  I didn't know if that feeling would return before hitting a year with my second set. 



Nope.  I'm good.

Intermittent Fasting (IF) Update: Bloating?

Hey Mocha Family!

The above diagram of what our stomachs looks like when bloated is really gross!  No, Ma'am!

The intermittent fasting has been going well, but I am struggling not to rush through my meals with all of our activities.  Planning nutritious and calorie rich fare must improve going forward.  While having a shorter window of time to eat yields great benefits for my body,  a struggle is accessing bigger and more high quality portions.  Since school started, I find myself rushing through my day, scarfing down my meals only to suffer sluggish digestion and bloating.  I am still tweaking things.
