about a year ago I used to have really long hair. And then I started realizing how unhealthy it was. I was blow-drying and straightening it a couple times a week and every time I went to get it trimmed the hairdresser would tell me my hair was really dry. So I decided I wanted to fix all the damage I’d done to it. I stopped heat damaging it and started using much better shampoos and conditioners, and just paying more attention to how I cared for it in general. I figured out a couple hairstyles that look good without blowdrying it. I also had it trimmed a few times over the last 6 months, and its just below my shoulders now. Its still got some damage I want to get rid of. But I want to have long HEALTHY hair again. So Im planning to get it trimmed again in about a month and then by this time next year, hopefully I will have grown it out a couple inches.

It was actually not that hard. I didn’t have to pay any bills this week. I already had enough groceries so I didn’t have to go to the store. And I filled up my car with gas at the beginning of the week. My favorite part about not spending money for a week is knowing exactly how much money I have in my account. I paid off all the charges to my credit card and my account is now balanced. Not spending money for a week made me realize exactly how much I do spend.
This has been the most potentially dangerous day for me so far. I woke up at 3:45 am to do the salt water drink because I had to be somewhere (with limited restroom access) from 515-930. It worked out pretty well for me though.
After I got back I drove to Whole Foods and bought some organic lemons and more maple syrup. geez maple syrup is expensive.
Then I went to a meeting I was stuck in for an hour. They served everyone cheese and pepperoni pizza and the aroma enveloped the room. For an hour. Of course I had to be the one person not to eat it, but I just kept thinking how I’ll have plenty of time to eat stuff like that if I want to after the cleanse. And it made me feel good about my willpower.
Now I have the rest of the day free, so there shouldnt be any problems. Im actually feeling like I need another glass of this ‘lemonade’ so thats it for now…
