Chopped!

No, not food.
MY HAIR!

Last night I had a (much needed) hair appointment. Let me just tell you how long it had been for me...
SINCE MAY 8TH! Waayy too close to that 5 month mark. Will I ever go that long again without a trip to my salon? I think not. My roots looked like dirty dish water that sat for days, and my ends were more split than ever. I felt gross. Like, all the time.

So I finally made that appointment and decided I was going to go back to how it used to be...CHOPPED! I have never been happier.

BEFORE\\AFTER

I even made Caleb do the unthinkable (for him, at least)...take pictures of me for my blog. Ha!
Getting ready has never been so easy. Yeah, I may have to blow dry it under a little...but the shower time was cut in half, and so was the drying time. After my stylist put it in a pony and chopped it, she took a good 7 inches off, then proceeded to perfect it and chop in some layers. I felt easily 3 pounds lighter when I left!

I just feel like a new me.
The past few days I've officially started my REAL fitness journey. Since I'm now signed up for a half marathon next year, I knew it was time to get serious. I always go a day or two, then I cave and eat a candy bar or a whole bag of chips. Then I realized, there is no one stopping me from changing...except ME.
I caaaan resist junk food, I have the ability to exercise, I am able to make good choices.
If only I try.

So, I can now say I've successfully gone two FULL days without sweets and eating clean. I know, two days isn't HUGE, but we all have to start SOMEWHERE. I've also been working out. It feels great to be active again...for no one else but me!

I also have some exciting news coming soon (and its not what you probably think)!!
Happy Fridayyy eve!

  3. You're adorable! This isn't helping me in my wanting to chop my hair off. Grahm would cry rivers of tears though. RIVERS. And I laughed out loud at making Caleb do the "unthinkable." How do girls get their men to regularly take pictures of them? So weird.

  7. LOVE! My ex boyfriend used to HATE when I chopped my hair off. (I've always liked it short) I guess that's why I dumped him and married a guy who could care less. Cheers to having husbands who support us no matter what!

  17. Yay for becoming even more motivated!

    November will be 2 years, YEARS, since I've had my hair done. :( My roots are so damn long, I'm basically rocking a "home made ombre" look. I need a trim SO bad, but I know when I go in I'll want highlights back and I'm a little in partial broke girl status.

    Can't wait to hear the news, I was gonna guess (& not the P word), but I'll just wait! :)

  24. I love the haircut!

    This is going to sound silly but my husband is out of town for a few days and I'm having a junk food party while he's gone before I get back on the eating better/exercising wagon.
