Well, you are only going to get photos of the hair part of this story, as I am still hard at work on the rest of…me 🙂 I've joined a group exercise class and although it is not hurting afterwards, it is certainly VERY intense during. The good news is that you can see & feel results quickly and the other good news (I'm working hard to spin this in a positive way) is that we are having loads of terrible weather~more time to get in shape before sunning (with spf 50) poolside while big sister does swim lessons. In addition, Mom always says that you start losing muscle mass in your 30's so I figure it was high time to get those muscles massed. Thanks, mom!
Anyway, enough about that. I also got my hair cut! I really hemmed and hawed about this and then realized that I should just bite the bullet and make it happen. I woke up early one Saturday morning, everyone else still asleep. I crept in to the bathroom, ponytailed my hair and cut off the rest. Easy!
It looked great~other than a few scraggly hairs~so I lived with it for a few days until I could get a "real" hair cut. The real cut took off a few more inches~which I was ready for~and now I have this:
In these two photos, it is the mirror that is doing the funny tricks, not the camera~We have a funky old mirror and needless to say, it's not the best thing to use for a self portrait. Anyhow, you get the idea. Here's another:
I really love this cut. It is very easy to take care of and works really well with the natural curl that I have. I am so glad I just went for it~And now I think I can just let it grow and do less maintenance than before!
