TWO days of rest and a new 'do!
Well I took Thursday off from exercising INTENTIONALLY. And I splurged a bit on our date. We went to The Naked Fish where I was hungry so we ordered buffalo chicken fingers for appetizers and then a grilled seafood salad for main entree. I thought it was a pretty good balance. THEN we went to Lizzie’s for ice cream. Funny side story: M and I both LOVE peanut butter and chocolate, so one of us will usually get that for ice cream. I assumed he would, so I had decided (in my head) to get chocolate cookie dough. Then I said “M, what are you getting?” He replied “Chocolate cookie dough.” WHAT!?! We are so alike sometimes! So I got the peanut butter cup and he got the chocolate cookie dough.
Anyway, it’s all about balance, right, so here’s a picture of one of my healthy “balancing” foods for yesterday:
It was the zero point veggie soup. Unfortunately, I didn’t measure my veggies, so it’s a bit too much cabbage and not enough broth. So I put in seasoned salt, and gulped it down. At least I got in veggies, right?
Anyway, the plan for today was that I would get my hair cut and then leave work early to go to the gym. Unfortunately, the best laid plans . . . for the second friday in a row, I have been waylaid at work trying to get a calculation out. And tonight I had bells rehearsal (rescheduled from Thursday) so there was no way the workout was going to happen! NOT SO HAPPY BRIDESMAID!
But here’s a before and after for the new do!
Yes, that’s my bathroom at home and bathroom at work. I was actually told by several people today that my hair didn’t look so bad long. I figured it was at least an inch too long. And it was in a ponytail by mid afternoon almost everyday. I like it short. At least some sort of style. M might like it a bit shorter. It’s still the same soft, shiny hair though, no matter what.
Here’s hoping tomorrow’s plans work out. I’d like to do a lifting workout before bells rehearsal.
P.S. the pictures are taken in a mirror, so there is a ring on my RIGHT hand, not my LEFT!
