Shhh. I have a secret. I “snuck” out during my lunch time today. Ok, so I didn’t really sneak out, I told everyone I was headed for a haircut and since it is Holy Week and I have plenty of extra hours in the next few days it is fine. Anyway, I left to go get a much needed haircut (also good to look a bit more polished for the congregation – I had grown rather scruffy…see?)
I love taking time to get a new cut and color because I don’t do it often enough and because it is something I do to feel good that doesn’t involve food. It is a non-food reward and whenever I can have self care time when food is not involved and there are no “treats” it is a good thing.
Plus, when my hair looks better I feel better. When I feel better I have been strength to turn down food that I shouldn’t be chosing.
I love the way this cut turned out. I feel like I keep pushing the envelope toward a really short pixie and I just love it short. It is such a better fit for my hair type (straight, fine and a TON of it), any attempts at length and I lose any volume in an instant. The color looks more subtle in pictures but it is a definite bump up from my bland brown normal hair color. I don’t color it often but I love the results when I enhance my own beauty even more.
I am not a super girly-girl, but I do love the relaxation that comes from a hair cut and the excitement about looking polished.
P.S. Two days of tracking so far. Feeling strong and back on the wagon.
