Gettin’ my hair did

Life has finally returned back to normal! The holidays have never been so stressful for me as they were this year. And although I loved each and every minute I spent with my friends and family, I’m kind of looking forward to getting back to a normal routine filled with yoga, healthy eating and reading my new books.

To kick start it all, I’m currently waiting to get my hair done! I’m pretty terrible at scheduling appointments (I’ve rescheduled this one twice and have my first dentist appointment in over a year this Saturday), but I find that as a mostly fake blonde, this one is pretty important (although purely vanity). I’m also thinking about cutting a few extra inches off…

Almost halfway through the week!!!

Appointments, Dylan, Knots and Cooking.

This is a week of appointments. Well, of two. Westley and I both have check ups with the vet/doctor.. Finally. They are both long over due but are such a pain to schedule. Why are these offices even open during the day? A vet and doctors office open from 4-10 PM would suit me just fine.

I started reading Bob Dylan by Bob Dylan about a century and a half ago. I think it’s actually been about two months, but the holidays and work put me to sleep before my head even hit the pillow to start reading. Consequently, I’m only about a fourth of the way through. I never understand what it is I do after yoga or running during the week. Where do those 5 hours go before bed? Well, this week they are going to you, Bob.

Master the top knot bun. That’s right. That is on my goal list this week. I’m not even embarrassed by how shallow that might be because I want to figure out how to do one that bad. It just looks so simple.. and yet so complicated. Wish me luck.

I happen to hate cooking. I also happen to be making a larger effort to eat better, as seen in my New Years Resolution. I am quickly learning that these two sentiments don’t go hand in hand. To eat well, you need to actually cook something. For dinner, I will often just have a bowl of cereal if I do a late yoga class or a bowl of pasta after I run. Nothing that takes over 10 minutes. For this week I have spinach and grilled chicken coming my way. I am allowing myself to have pasta with the chicken, but am generally trying to cut down this week. Baby steps, babes, baby steps.
