Day 1 of 21




I'M BACK! Yes.. my determination woke up with me this morning. So I have my giant glass of water sitting in front of me, and I have planned a full day of workouts/bike riding/gardening that will keep me busy and out of the house... which means far away from the kitchen! LOL Thanks to Karin who reminded me of the magic words... "you can do all things thru Christ who strengthens you." AMEN!! I need to remember to ask HIM for strength when I am growing weak and making my way to the kitchen. Thanks Karin!!

Ok, so on to other things. I have decided to chop off my hair! YEAH!!! I have been growing my hair for 4 years now.. and it is long.. and I like long hair.. but I am so tired of it. I don't do anything with it but pull it back into a pony tail.. or let it hang down stringy and in disarray. So, my aunt, who is a great hair stylist, is coming to visit in two weeks. I called her yesterday and made sure she was bringing her scissors with her. I want it a little above my shoulders.. so the curl will come back to life... and it wont be such a pain to straighten it if I want to. Yeah. I 'm so excited.

Well, I am off to get my day started. The weather is beautiful.. so I'm going to get the girls dressed and we are outta here!!!

Have a Blessed Day!

The determination is a lovely thing!!!
I think you'll look great with short hair. I can't wait to see some pics after it's done! It can be very freeing to get the length cut off. I love growing my hair out, but I also love the short and simple when I get it chopped off for donation!

Aw, Tigerlilly, why do we always end up on the same path? We say that we're going to fight food, but then we have horrible weekends... I think we need to work on the emotional part of things... Anyway, glad to hear that you're back on track and ready to make a fresh start. I think you'll look gorgeous with shoulder length hair, it'll bring out your fab cheekbones. Can't wait to see the pics.

Take care,
PSG

p.s. I'm so happy that Woodroe made it home, poor baby!

I am exited to be on your team. I found your blog which led me to the 2007 Challenge. How is the cleanse going?

You are one hawt lookin' mama :)

Do you have enough hair to donate to Locks of Love? (or something like that) They make wigs for cancer pts. with the hair.

New hair - new attitude!

You go girl.

Dang, you are gorgeous (and your daughter is absolutely beautiful, like her mama). With long hair or short, you'll be one hot chick.

Good for you for being so motivated! I hope it rubs off on me!

I can't wait to see your new 'do!! I've been thinking about getting a new 'do too, but I've been growing my hair out for so long, I'm a bit afraid. I'm wondering if I should make an appointment with my old stylist in Hawaii for when we're there in May. I haven't found a single stylist I loved as much as her since I moved here 5 years ago. Hmm, I think that's exactly what I'll do!

I'm so happy to hear that you've got your groove back - you're such an inspiration to us all!

Yes! Good for you! And I cant wait to see the new and improved hair. Sometimes its just time for a bit of a drastic change.

Enjoy your day of biking and gardening!!!
