Default My 1 month reward

My 1 month reward for starting this life change: On Lucille Ball's would be 100th birthday, I went Red.

I did it for many reasons. Mainly because it's strange living in a rather conservative community with purple, blue, and black hair. Portland, OR doesn't bat an eye at crayon colored hair. Not the same for Arizona. So I went with something a little more normal. But, also, it's to celebrate a new me. I'm fiery and I'm sassy and I'm determined to be reborn like the Phoenix that I am. So... RED! Makes sense.

John, my stylist (I call him the Hair Dr.) is a saint and needs to be wooted to the moon and back. He had quite the daunting task. I wish I'd taken photos. At one point, my hair was green, blonde, and very dark brown. Like a bad run in with a chemical pool!

I love that colour and wish I had the guts to go red as well, but I'm terrified it will come out looking fake and brassy. Your colorist did an awesome job!

looks great!!!

And I'm a big fan of time-based goals and rewards. I do weight/time based challenges and it's definitely exciting to meet them, but I also know that the time staying on plan is the one part of this I have control over. So good for you for that first month!!!

Thank you, Ladies. I'm loving it. And Yes, John (the colorist/stylist/Hair Doctor) is AMAZING. Like I said, he had to work with blue and purple and green tones (and BLACK!) and he didn't fry my hair (much).

It's a nice reward for SOP. Now... to come up with something for month 2.
