Good Hair Color Can Make All the Difference in How You Feel

My hairdresser of more than ten years moved away to eastern Montana in August.  Since then, I have not found a new stylist and took over my own hair coloring.  I tried several products, with mixed results.  Though I seldom rave about products in this blog, I must say I got great results in less than a half an hour with the Clairol Natural Instincts product.  It is ammonia free, takes no more than 15 minutes to set, and comes with a great color enhancement pack to use a few weeks after the initial color application.  The product is also very reasonably priced, at less than $10. This morning, I read Facebook posts while I waited and it was SO easy!  So if you are looking for a less chemically, effective, quick hair color product--particularly right before New Years Eve, you might want to give it a try.

What I noticed about the last couple of days on my diet is that I did fine, if not a bit under my calorie goal, and kept my protein content high, but where was the breakfast?  I see that I don't eat anything before noon or one in the afternoon.  That changed today when I had a bowl of Cheerios for breakfast with 2% milk.

Here are my Tuesday and Wednesday results:

Tuesday: Calories Protein
lasagna 600 25.6
1/2 California Pizza Kitchen Sicilian 500 27
green salad 100 0
small slice pumpkin pie 229 4.3
water/diet soda 0 0
total 1429 56.9
cup of tea with sweetener and milk 20 1
bobs red mill soup with sausage 400 23
three slices of ham 360 48
small slice of pumpkin pie 229 4.3
diluted grape juice 120
total 1129 76.3

I have not been hungry between meals and have not succumbed to stress eating, but I think moving some calories to first thing in the morning should help to jump start my metabolism.
