Three Things Thursday

1. You know it's time to call and make an appointment for a haircut when you wear your hair in a ponytail for three straight weeks. Yup. Three weeks straight. Even to work. Didn't even attempt to wear it down for work. So I called yesterday, made an appointment and went to get my hair cut. I don't have a specific girl I go to, I take whoever can get me in. So imagine my worry when I sat down and Jenna #2 came up to me with her scissors. Gulp. But she did a much better job this time. And I was actually pretty happy with the end result.

2. I paid a visit to the YMCA tonight. I'm not sure what I was thinking, but apparently I thought it was going to be kind of crappy weather today after work. Which meant I ended up doing my 7 miles on the treadmill. Ouch. On the plus side, I switched treadmills mid-way through the run, so the distance display never actually read 7 and since they were smaller numbers, it was quite as painful. Bad thing? My foot's kind of sore tonight. Guess I'll be icing and taking some ibuprofen and crossing my fingers it feels better soon.

3. I'm a week into the 3 Changes Challenge that Amanda at Run to the Finish is hosting. I've taken some baby steps towards making those changes.
  • Drink More Water: I've been focusing on this one this week. And so far it's going pretty well. I do really well with the water intake at work, but then see the water consumption drop a bit once I get home at night. I'll have to work on that a bit more.
  • Do more strength/core work: This has been the hardest change for me so far. I really need to work on it this upcoming week.
  • Allow myself to hit the snooze button only once: Baby steps. Some mornings I've utterly failed at this change, others I done pretty well. Ironically, the two days I actually only hit the snooze button once? Saturday and Sunday. And while I've been going over my snooze button allotment during the week, I have cut back a bit. I'll continue to work on this.

I need a haircut too! I have still been wearing my hair down for work even though some days it just is a mess! I am really enjoying Amandas challenge too - some days it harder than others but it really is a good idea! have a good weekend!

That's what I decided to chop my hair too... when I was doing pony tails or buns day in, day out.

Great job on the treadmill run and your 3 changes!

Haha omg I did the same thing with my hair. Nothing but a pony tail for about a month and I finally had to get to chopped this week.

I never get my hair cut until I get so desperate that I take the first place that has an opening. Pathetic, I know.

Doing pretty good on the changes. Keep up the good work.

Oh girl, I am the same way with my hair. Wearing it in a ponytail for days before realizing why I am doing it... duh, I need a haircut!
