Regarding my walking from my last post...I did indeed get in the 7 miles 2 days in a row, and on Monday got in about 2.3. Tuesday was a day of
Regarding the aforementioned hair activity, the girl who has done my hair for years somehow managed to get the color way too dark. WAY. Now at work yesterday people said they really liked it, but it was a big change from the day before, especially since the gray undertones had made serious inroads into my usual dark blonde color, rendering my overall hair a bit lighter than usual, so the contrast is even more pronounced. I hate when that happens, and I know there is no way she didn't mix the color different from last time. She was totally distracted, busy, and then in the middle of a manicure when my timer went off, leaving me to sit for 10 extra minutes while assuring me it was okay. AARRGGHH. Oh well, no one, including me, died. So how bad can it really be? Sometimes I have to just tell myself to get over the small stuff, and this is definitely small, even though it feels big.
Speaking of feeling big, I haven't weighed since last Tuesday to end Tammy's challenge. My food has been okay but not clean, and I've exercised a lot. I really have no idea where I am on the scale but will find out tomorrow. Rest assured today will be a clean day. Funny how when I don't weigh for awhile, I always feel big, and often for no reason. My clothes are fitting fine so I have no reason to be nervous except that I know myself and the few indiscretions I've had this week. Not many and not extreme, but as I said before - not clean. Tomorrow will tell the tale.
Finally, recall the room redo I was hoping to undertake in anticipation of Tom's beautiful and skinny sister and her husband coming for a visit this weekend...well, that's been a major source of the busy-ness this week. Yesterday the room was painted by a good friend from AA and his buddy, and it looks great. But getting ready for them involved emptying 2 book shelves, wiping down all the wood work, vacuuming, taking down a full length door mirror, and other assorted activities that were not fun but enabled my friend to give me a great deal on the work. I will take a picture when the room is re-assembled, but have yet to find my camera charger. Anyway - having this company coming has been the major time and mind occupier this week. I'm looking forward to having them here for a few days, but will be glad to settle down for a bit after!
That's about it for my quick catching up. I'm really feeling that disconnected sense from being so sporadic with my posting. Already, before even hitting publish, I feel better. I hope everyone has a good "little Friday", which is what a teacher friend calls Thursdays. And again, today WILL be a clean day. I will report back tomorrow!
