Today is such a blah day. It is straight gloomy out. When I took the dogs out I could see my breath in the air. Not cool. The dogs two yards down are stuck outside and it is getting ready to rain and that just tugs at my heart strings. I have no clue what to do about it.
My hair is growing like a weed! I love it. It feels like, as far as my looks are concerned, I am coming into my own. I found a hair solution for me that I like and can actually take care of my hair without having to shell out hundreds of dollars a year for relaxers, deep conditioning treatments, etc.
My husband LOVE running his fingers through my hair, and helping me to detangle as well. How did I get so lucky?
I have ham and bean soup cooking in the crockpot and I am thinking of starting a fire in the fireplace, watch a movie and work on my niece's Christmas present. I also could start making cards again.
Hope everyone is staying warm!!
As my readers, I feel that we have a relationship. We can laugh together, we can cry together, and I can tell you anything. So I am here to tell you something...
I am a junk food ADDICT.
I love candy, chips, cake, and pie. I will be the first person to admit it.
A couple of weeks ago I made mention of the fact that my husband and I are making a bit of a lifestyle change. Re-reading the entry, I realize I did not make mention of the fact that we are changing our food habits as well. Out with the chips, cookies, chicken nuggets (mmm, nuggets), fried cheese, and in with healthy eating, moderate portions, and finding delicious and healthy snacks.
I know there are some people out there reading this and groaning and thinking with drastic measures such as these, I am doomed to fail. But I don't think I am... and I will tell you why.. I love a challenge. I like the idea of trying to find something as delicious as my beloved salt and vinegar potato chips, but healthy. For me fixing the hubs healthy snacks is kind of easy. I can add seasonings to nuts for him, and BAM instant salty craving satisfied. It is not as easy for me. As an adult, it seems that I am developing food allergies. As a kid I never had any problems with food. Now everything makes my throat swell up and itch. So far: Soy Milk, almonds, and pistachios. There is more on that list, but that is what i can come up with right now.
Though we have only been doing this for maybe three weeks. I can tell a difference in my hair. It doesn't dry out as fast, and doesn't feel like straw. The hubs was commenting on the length of it last night. I can't wait to see further down the road what this lifestyle change has in store for my hair.
Sorry Guys. I have not been ignoring the blog. On the contrary; If you look around the site you will see some touches I have added. I have also been leaving messages on the facebook page (facebook.com/thetaleofgoingnatural) as well as twitter (mrsckugs) I just went away for the holiday to see my fahhjahhh. in New York. He lives in a sleepy little town by the name of Canandaigua, NY. Lovely little place. A good times was had by all. I will be back tomorrow with a review of more Moroccanoil products and just to chit chat about my family and the talk that a few of us had about natural hair.
