Haircut and color

Saturday, August 23, 2014

Yesterday we had a day off from spanish lessons and pickle ball, so I took the opportunity to have a long overdue haircut and have it colored again.
It is a little shorter than planned and the color slightly more copper but it will grow and it will fade :) Still, I love my new cut and color, even if it wasn't quite planned that way.

August has been a busy month so far. We had a week off from lessons and next week we will be finished with the 3rd session, ready for the next one! So far so good and we want to keep going. We found that 3 afternoons a week isn't quite as intense as 4 per week - our brains need the rest! By the end of the 2nd session I felt I had reached a point of saturation, the break really helped and going a little slower is much better. We are getting to the point of "functional" and I understand more of what is being said around me, still miss a lot as mexicans talk at full speed, there is no 1st gear :)

We also got back to playing pickle ball. At 7:30 at night it is still warm but no direct sunshine. It is great fun to get more active again. The yoga and walking were fine, but not quite the same.

My weight hasn't changed much still in 136-137 range, never made it back down to 135... but working on that! I am still aiming for 134, my low from last summer.

Hope everyone had a great summer, can you believe it is Labor Day weekend next weekend???

    Love your new look and the color, too!
    Pickle ball sounds interesting and fairly intense; so glad to read it is getting cool enough to resume play.

    I love short hair & it is soooo cute on you! And I like the color, too!

    I admire your courage in tackling Spanish! C communication & every day life will be easier & more personal --- that's good!

    You look great!! If only I had your dedication! Pickle ball sounds like a lot of fun.

    It's cooling down in CO --I even thought about a fire in the wood stove tonight, but decided to don some warmer clothes instead. Fall comes early in the high mtns, as you know. I need to capitalize on getting outside every single day!

    You've done an amazing job of changing your lifestyle. I'm reading Dr. Judith Beck's book about "thinking like a thin person." Whew...good ideas!
    Have a great day tomorrow!

    The new do is cute and slimming. You are doing great! The weight you are at is where I would like to be again. The books say I should be 10-20 less than that. I have been 20 less and I sit on bones there, so don't like it. Held 125-130 for YEARS. But right now, being where you are seems a dream to me. I just want to get below the next 0. Keep up the good work, enjoy the time off, and have a great Labor Day Weekend!

    Like the hair color, it suits you. Have to start working on getting my spanish back to a functional level as we're planning another trip back to Costa Rica in November.
