elderflowermouse: (Vicious Whisper)

I chopped off my hair ... it's now shoulder-length.
I also tried to ombre it at home (without bleaching) ... I've used dyes that have lightened my hair before, I didn't want a dramatic ombre, just a subtle one, and all of my other dye has grown out and been cut off, so I figured I'd be good to go.
Well, the brand I chose was misleading ... it did nothing :(
So, unless I want to try bleaching again, I'll have to wait for my hair to grow out again ... and I don't really want to bleach, because my hair is coarse enough as it is.

I never cry at tv or movies, but I totally cried at Doctor Who a couple of weeks ago, and nearly again last week and this week. oh man. Neil made fun of me, because I cried before he did.

I'm working really hard (for me) to lose some more weight. I'm down to 191.5 lbs. I'm hoping to get to 175 ... maybe even 170 by my Birthday. That's 16-21 lbs in about 21 weeks.
I also don't want to completely focus on my weight via the scale. I sucked it up and measured my waist (ugh) and took a "before" photo, so I can compare as I go.

My plan is to keep getting better at eating and go out for more walks.
I've been playing around with breakfast smoothies - right now, I'm using an almond/coconut mild blend, a small banana, some frozen berries (blackberry, blueberry, black cherry), a big handfull of arugula, and 2 tbsp of crushed flax seed. I leave at 6am, and finish the smoothie about halfway to work (6:30), and on most days, I've been pretty good until lunch at 11.
I've been sticking to my 5k (3.1 mile) walks every Sunday, and last week, I started going out on my lunch break again. I want to try and keep up a minimum of 3 times per week while I'm at work. I also take the stairs down instead of the elevator. I'm not in quite good enough shape to take them the 7 floors up, but I'm working on it! I do use the stairs to go 2 floors up to the lunch room to get sparkling water.
I just need to get better at walking up the hill to get home. It's been so cold and gross out though.

Now to get off my butt and walk up the hill to grab some more arugula, because I'm out! Then to make my lunch and go to bed.
