I had my last glass of Diet Coke on Sunday, and poured the rest of the big bottle down the drain. That was it. What seemed to be crazy back in August became reality. I weaned myself off of not only Diet Coke but also anything carbonated (I used to love to combine 1/4 part juice to 3/4 part carbonated flavored water). Yayyy me! I’m now downing bottles of water and Crystal Light, and low-fat milk at lunch, and more or less sloshing through the day. But I’m already happy with the lighter grocery bags not loaded down with soda, and figured out that I’m saving something staggering like $700/year or more by sticking to water. Yikes! I can do a lot with that $$!
I’m trying to decide what to do about my hair – it’s driving me crazy as it grows out. I’m not completely sure why I decided to grow it out in the first place and it’s looking sort of scraggly in an in-between way. Do I stick with my plan and continue to grow it out? It’s reached a length where I can hardly see any of my earings (which I do wear one at a time, in case you were wondering). But it feels kind of girly to be longer. Of course, I’m not a girl, I’m a 55-year old woman and I don’t want to look like the Before person in a Stacy and Clinton makeover. Please, please, keep Nick away from my head! But what should I do?
