No, not food.
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.
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!
