hair illiterate

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

i am the most ignorant person when it comes to styling hair

i have just had a major mental breakdown!!

i can't do anything with my new haircut... i can't get the flat iron to work right, the curling iron and the hair dryer, well, that just frizzes up my hair. and so do the others.

i have washed my hair 3 times and started over each time.

i am late for work --- and i don't care.

i must be the dumbest female on the earth!!! what is wrong with me... i watched her do it yesterday... i know each step ---- WHY CAN'T I DO IT!!!

    I have this same problem. I watch the stylist do it then I can't repeat it when I get home.

    I saw your haircut picture. You are messing with it too much ! It looks like a great cut. Only brush it once with one of those toothy brushes to tame any crazy hair and then just let it air dry and fluff & shape it with your fingers. As soon as you brush it and blow dry it and spray it and good lord iron it you have beaten all life out of your poor hair !

    aww I have had a bad hair week too.
I can understand the frustration

I asked for a trim 1 1/2 inches off
well by the time I realized how much was coming off it was too late to correct it and I had to go with it.
supper short 4 inch length at most. not happy at all.

Perhaps part of getting your new cut too work is in the hair products?

I would call and ask what you should be adding to the process.

Back in the Saddle Again...

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

well kids.

today, after going a few days avoiding the ever humbling scale, i jumped on without reservation and much to my surprise ---- i was down 4.9 lbs. -- i'm calling it 5lbs.

that felt sooooo good. i don't think i've done anything different. i've lessened my treadmill intensity by lowering my speed and just keeping one steady pace for my whole hour. i think i've eaten more than i used to by about 200 calories a day. and once a week so far, i have done a 100 crunch session at the gym. that's all i can think of that i've done different.

i think my water country trip is postponed. hubby has to be 'on call' for work and it won't do anyone any good if he doen't have his phone on him... last i checked, phones were not waterproof! now i need to find somehthing else to do with my july 4th... hopefully something will pop up. especially since my gym is CLOSED!!! all i can say is my SPARK DVD CARDIO BLAST better show up by then! lol.

have any of you used that dvd? CARDIO BLAST? i'd like to know your opinions of it if you have used it. it says you can burn up to 600 calories and hour (for a 150lb person) what if you are a 260lb person, would you burn a lot more since it would be more exertion? i can't wait to try the cardio kick boxing, i watch the class at the gym and it looks like fun. i can't get there early enough to join the class, it's almost over by the time i get there. but it looks like fun.

going for my new hairstyle today. i got my cousin working on it --- she laughed and told me i did not give her enough time to think about it... so i cut a bunch of pics out of magazines and am taking them with me today. i will try to post a new pic of my hair later tonight -- please let me know what you think. won't get home til about 9 pm.

oh well, gotta go clean car and get apples -- come home, change and go to gym before my hair appointment tonight --- busy busy busy.... (took today off work instead of my usual wednesday since tomorrow i have to do and end of month inventory).

later kiddies.

Planning day trip to Water Country next week!

Sunday, June 27, 2010

I'm hoping it won't be crowded on july 4th. I figured it will be either incredibly crowded or incredibly empty --- one extreme or the other.

We are planning going to Water Country for the day. It is a water park in Portsmouth, NH.

It should provide lots of exercise and fun in the sun.

Anyone else have plans for July 4th?

    Sounds like you should have lots of fun! No plans here. My son will likely be working and so we won't be able to go and spend time with family like we usually do. But we will do something great!
