Since my kinda cranky post this afternoon, when I was mid-hair do makeover (warning–this picture is scary…scroll down immediately to see the finished product!)…
…you might say I’ve redefined myself.
Besides loving my hair, accepting that my hip still hurts…and choosing to plan on going to a yin yoga class to try to zone (zen) out and just relax without putting any intensity into the mix (yin yoga is not the same as restorative yoga but it’s similar and I don’t think it’s going to fix my hip but I highly doubt it will make it worse), and realizing that I have stuff I need to do, should do, and don’t really have to do…and that I can prioritize…I feel like I’ve smartened up.
Step 1 was to breathe. I rushed to get to class and to finish my stuff at the Gazette, but guess what? It’s done. And I managed to pack a granola bar so I didn’t want to eat one of the uber-fashionistas in my Fashion Writing class (FYI I am not a fashion elite and when some girl said she bought a YSL ring in NYC last year I thought she said Micelle and it took me four asks of the girl next to me to clarify that she didn’t buy a blob of fat in water).
but the $250 price tag is a month’s worth of groceries. Despite my critical nature, I think the class will be okay. I definitely do not fit in but that’s okay, someone needs to be the odd one out.
When I got home I had leftover curry (with pork and couscous) and then some chocolate. Remember my strife over not feeling like I really let myself have those little treats without “sneaking” them? Taking a picture of them is the first step. Even of the nasty looking mug of hot cocoa I’m drinking (nasty cuz it spilled…don’t worry it’s delicious!). I realized though that my hot chocolate mix has calcium added…and I like it before bed…and calcium interferes with my thyroid meds…so you’re supposed to leave a few hours. Note to self, have it earlier. There’s something also weird about when I deem certain foods “okay” vs. not okay to have. So I’m having my treats earlier and in plain sight…progress!
Now it’s time for me to change before yoga…where did today go? Definitely NOT towards my homework…
When’s the last time you did something big with your hair?
What are you up to tonight?
