A perm that is.  It was probably around 1984 and perms were all the rage.  My hair was straight as an arrow and I wanted curls!  So I got a perm, and it lasted all of about 3 days!  My hair can just never hold a curl!

I was reminded of this when I got a phone call from Hannah yesterday afternoon:

  • Hannah:  “So how do you feel about me dying my hair.”
  • Me: “What color?”
  • Hannah: “Just a shade darker, with a red tint.”
  • Me: “Well, it is just hair and if it looks like ass it will wash out!”

The night before my high school senior picture, I wore the smallest sponge rollers in my hair.  I had visions of big hair (it was the 80’s!) for my senior picture.  Guess how my hair turned out?

yep - that's all the curl that stayed in my hair!
the before - look atall those natural high lights! 😀
the hair dye still smells so bad!
okay, it may be hard to tell because it was getting dark, but there are hints of auburn - she likes it!

With her nose pierced, several ear piercings and her belly button pierced, lets just say I am glad she decided not to die her hair black! 😀

Breakfast was a repeat of yesterday, except with strawberries as my fruit.

I was surprised how sore my thigh muscles were from swimming yesterday morning, so at lunch I just did the elliptical for 35 minutes.  Lunch was a spinach and cheddar jack quesadilla – I used low carb tortillas – each one is only 81 calories and 6 grams of fiber.  With my chili, lunch has 18 grams of fiber!

I love the cheese oozing out!

I defrosted a couple pork chops.  I wasn’t sure what exactly I was going to do with them.  I thought of stuffing them with spinach and cheese, but didn’t think Tony would like that.  I ended up coming up with a quick paste, for lack of a better word.

  • 5 sage leaves
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • cracked pepper
  • salt
  • lime zest
  • juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 2 tablespoons white wine
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
firts I just chopped this together, then added it to the wine and oil
The chops marinated maybe 20 minutes, but still came out so flavorful!

I let the chops rest in a bowl so that any juices can be poured over the top of the chops right before serving.

Hannah decided to make her own meat – breaded skinny chicken.  She was so funny – she took one bite of her chicken and smiled and then cut off two pieces for me and Tony to try – she will definitely make that for herself again!
Our side dish was my spring risotto, only subbing in zucchini for the asparagus.

next time I'll add the zucchini later in the cooking process - it kind of got lost after adding the broth
it was so creamy! I love the addition of apple (instead of onions!)

Stats for Tuesday:

  • 30 minute swim
  • 35 minute elliptical

My arms and shoulders are sore this morning – my guess is from swimming?  So I am taking the morning off of working out.  Off to make my pumpkin pancakes!  I actually found canned pumpkin at Walgreen’s of all places!
