Even though my weight has stayed relatively the same, I feel like my body has gotten a little softer since taking my exercise sabbatical about two months back.  I am sure some of it is in my head, but I am glad that I’ve started the process of getting back into shape.  I’ve also been eating some fattier things than I normally do, so I think I need a health makeover all-around just to get back into the swing of things.  The confidence would do me good.

Yesterday I got an awesome new haircut from Peter at Orbit Salon!  I love getting mini-makeovers from new hairstyles or make-up.  I ended up getting bangs again… which I am terrible at maintaining… but I just felt like I was ready to have them again.  I even thought about dying my hair, but everyone I asked said that my natural hair color was the best on me.  For some reason I am 32 and have avoided having any grey yet, so I might as well take advantage of that fact while I can.  I have friends and family on high-lookout though for any white hairs though.  🙂  When it actually happens, I might have an early midlife crisis right then and there.  I know it’s not a big deal, but there is so much anticipation around it now that I will totally blow it out of proportion.  😀  On the other end of the spectrum, my grandmother Gayle (mom’s mom) started going grey at the young age of 19.  She now has the most beautiful white hair, and has for as long as I can remember.  She gets so many compliments on it, too.  I think being able to sport grey hair is all about the attitude – for men and women.

While I am really looking forward to this Saturday’s shoot, my nerves are starting to get all bundled up into a big ugly ball.  Even when I think that I am fine, I know that I am experiencing stress b/c my eye has been twitching (attractive) and my rosacea has decided to come back just a little on the right side of my face.  Luckily I’ve been getting a lot of sleep this week which I’m sure helps a great deal.  And the fact that it’s just a one day shoot is super good, it will be over before we know it.  There is just so much pressure around getting what we need in the can, and while it’s only one day… it’s an expensive day. I also worry about little things like everyone getting along and having a good time.  Honestly I just need to focus on getting good content that day and my collaboration with Rebecca.  Luckily we have been friends for a long, long time so if we have any disagreements we are sure to find a solution relatively fast.  We know each other so well and understand the creative process of making a film.  It will all be just fine, and probably more so!  I believe in this project and concept, I think it is going to do really well.

New Haircut!
