Hair today gone tomorrow

Thursday, January 16, 2014


Combo of "Fun" and "What works for me", because it's fun to make vlogs where I banter about stuff that works for me.
Vlogs are my logs in video form. Sometimes they're closer to a journal, but, that's also "What works for me." This is not edited. I am not adding music or cricket sound effects when I have a moment of distraction.
Not today.
Cherish something about yourself and you're less likely to give up on the whole package. My hair and my eyes I give my attention to. Some people focus on waxing or manicures. Something that you can cherish so that you won't focus on the negatives or the other things you're trying to improve that take more time. Having something aesthetic to pay attention to helps with self respect and can be a way to preoccupy yourself instead of scorfing food like you're a trash compactor.

Today I am just happy my teenaged daughter is 'allowing' me to grab our computer for a little chillaxin'.

So, to update:
I have dropped some weight after the hubby's holiday heapin'. He was on vacation and I was working extra and he just HAD to cook - ALL the time. When I FINALLY found some courage I had to keep saying, "No, but thank you for the delicious temptations. I really, really want to chunk up on all the excess food and sweets you're soliciting, BUT, my knee is killing me."
I also threw in, "You don't want me to buy a whole new wardrobe for the added weight, right?"
I don't know if it was my health or his frugal wallet, the food is not being waved in my face.

In wake of my car accident, I'm finally coming out of shock. My bosses have bent over backwards to align my schedule to my b.f.f.'s and she is more than content to drive me in. We get an hour a day to vent, dream, and banter. We were on different shifts during the manic holidays and my son's health scare and I 'm pretty sure our next visit would be jail because neither of were coping without our "Therapy" chats.

Water is so amazing. I'm doing superstar when I'm getting 12 cups in. I feel full, hydrated and energized. If I had any wisdom from this journey, that is my Prime Nugget.

I hope to chat more. I'm contemplating a part-time job in town at a coffee shop. I love my job but, I'm pretty sure even my b.f.f. has a threshold for my randomness. It would do me some good to stop hiding from my neighbours. It has been six years and everybody know where I live and I had no idea they existed. Then again, they're not outside hooping and dancing in public like a Homemade Circus. They could do their share and make themselves easier to identify.

Just sayin'.

Before: It's not the best, but, I'll get the one off our phone/camera when I can have a turn on it TEXASFILLY

    I like the Neapolitan hair :D
I'm trying to find the one thing to hold on to, but still treating my body like a trash can because its what I know.
Love you

    The nugget I really liked was the cashmere sweater analogy.

If we are feeling bad - down - discouraged - miserable are we going to take out the cashmere sweater and scoop a half-gallon of chocolate ice cream on it, spoonful by spoonful, standing at the counter???
No!
And why not?
We'd feel EVEN MORE MISERABLE after we were done dumping all that damaging substance all over our sweater, that we "claim" we love. Thoughts of, "I can't even keep my sweater clean. How can I ruin things like this so easily? What is WRONG with me?" surface pretty quickly.

For today, I choose to treat myself like I would treat something of value! emoticon

You look great. So glad you are ok and your son is better.

    OMGosh, I love your response to temptation to your husband. I will have to use that. Money always talks with my husband. I know he loves me no matter what and I know he wants me to be healthy but as soon as I get a little svelte he's always wanting to feed me! Arrgh.

    Liz,

I think your hair looks great!! Glad you found a solution that makes you happy!

Cheers to keeping up the water! emoticon emoticon

Best wishes on finding the job that suits your needs best. Much like your hair color -- it needs to work for you and make you happy (as much as a job can do that at least).

    All I can say is that with bone structure like yours, you could not look bad even if you TRIED. I'm just sayin'.

I love the idea of working at a coffee shop part time. Pretty cool to smell coffee all day. emoticon
