Well I wimped out on the Chantix. I was having bad heart palpitations so I quit taking it and yes I am back to smoking. Oh well. I'll try again another way another day. I'm not going to beat myself up about it and feel bad. I'm still doing a lot of other stuff to improve my life.
I have been working like crazy and coming home in the evening and cutting grass. I have probably an acre and a half of yard to cut and it had gotten probably three feet high, so it takes a little bit each day to get it done. It's great exercise though because I have hills in the yard. My brother keeps saying I need to get a riding lawn mower and I keep saying no, I need the exercise.
I went and had all my hair cut off the other day. I have had long hair to my waist half of my life and it is very thick. It's way too much work and very hot. I've had it cut little bits at a time over the last year. Every time I would try to get it cut the beautician would say, "Well let's just cut this much off and see how you like it." I would agree and get home and wish I had cut more. The other day I walked in and said "Please cut it short." So she did and I absolutely love it. I so wish I had done this years ago. It is so much cooler and so much easier to deal with. I have also had tons of compliments about it which is great for my self confidence. I needed a boost.
I was also told that I made a huge donation to whatever they are doing with the hair for the oil spill. I'm so glad I could help!
