a bad case of CHD  

I’m suffering from a bad case of compulsive hair disorder. I can point directly to all the causes, which are as follows:

1. I’ve regained the entire 20 pounds I lost after Young Indiana’s birth, and I traditionally take weight gain out on my hair.

2. My Rogue streak needs re-bleaching.

3. I generally only get one shower during the work week, so my hair looks pretty limp a lot of the time.

4. I have not had my hair even trimmed in 18 months, so it is no doubt in actual need of some maintenance.

2 & 4 are comparatively easily rectified, except I’m avoiding them for two reasons: I won’t re-bleach the stripe more often than every 3 months and P-Con is coming up at the start of March, so I don’t want to do it until then, and while I have vague intentions of getting my hair styled at some point, the thing I’m thinking of does generally come in long layers (thank you random person on flickr who has the haircut I want), and I have traditionally hated layers on myself, so I’m trying to get it long enough in the first place that if I get it cut that way and hate it, I can cut it straight across again and still have it past my shoulders. So that’s several months out yet.

During which time I could of course in theory lose weight, but Christ, I’m not doing well on that front. :p

The shower thing is probably doomed for some time yet.

I hear you about the weight. sigh. Let's just say I baked ( and ate) a bit too many cookies over christmas.

To help, I bought a kit with a exercise rubber band, a book with exercises and a DVD. It cost 10 euro, and I figured if I use it 10 minutes every day, it is better than nothing. Three days later I forgot it at my mum's. Erm. But I have it now! So I'll do my best to use it daily :).

I'm in the same boat. I just rejoined Weight Watchers online with a friend, and I'll be starting back up with my P90X workouts this weekend.

Let's hear it for getting back on the right track for getting healthy! Hey, Kit, you can join us, too! Yanno, in your copious amounts of spare time.

Maybe I should come rejoin WWO with you and be your friend too...

*sigh* As my mother pointed out, I didn't make time for exercise before having a baby, but I'm sure not finding it any easier to make time now that I have one. And I'm getting pretty depressed about it all right now, and feeling like I just can't make any difference to myself. :/

I don't know how you find time to breathe with everything you have on your plate.

Pinging you privately, by the way.

I continue to handle my own hair disorder the same way I have for the last several months. :)

*Believe* me, I was thinking of you as I wrote this. :)
