I’m pretty surprised with only having gained 1lb since last week, because I stepped on the scale on Friday, and I’d gained 3lbs, so I must have done something right over the weekend.
And thank god I did get my hair in check, otherwise the resulting number might have been a disaster that sent me grabbing for a pack of Doritos or something when I go shopping tomorrow.
That said, it’s not disastrous, it’s not terrible.
It’s a pound. I’ve dealt with worse before on weeks when I didn’t leave Binge Fest 2011 in my wake.
I’m still not entirely sure what was wrong with me on Thursday night, and I wish I did. I’m glad that I felt better on Friday and got my head back on straight.
I honestly don’t think I could have dealt with a three- or four-pound gain this week. I think I’d have looked at the number and cried.
So thanks to y’all who commented and helped. It means more than you know.
In random news:
I don’t think I ever actually mentioned that I went blonde last year. It looked awesome, when I finally got to the colour I wanted.
And then my sister’s wedding happened, and I dyed it back to black.
I liked it so much, though, that I decided to dye it back to blonde again, this year. It happened the day after I changed the layout here, and I’ve been blonde since then, but something went wrong, and I’ve had these orange bits where my hair was red that no amount of bleach and peroxide could get out.
So I’ve been blonde for just over two months and last night I decided, screw it, I’m not getting those orange bits out of my hair, and decided to go back to red.
I’ve got some really good hair stuff that I bought when I moved back to Scotland, that’s supposed to lighten your hair from black to a really good purple-red colour (Wella Magma, if you’ve ever heard of it, number 56 – Mahogany-Violet) and I’ve used it on my hair before.
Thing is, that was done from BLACK hair, not blonde hair.
So I had the dye on my head last night, and it was looking fine. I put in more pigment than required – double the amount – and it looked good! It looked dark red-purple, and I was thinking, “YEAH, this is gonna be fine.”
When I was washing it out, the bath looked like a scene from a slasher movie, admittedly, but it’s red dye. That’s what you’d expect.
I didn’t look at my hair until I got back into my bedroom and took my towel off my head.
Yeah, my hair isn’t dark purple-red.
My hair is DARK ROOTS, then BLONDE, then HOT FUCKING PINK. And a little bit of purple at the tip of the fringe, for some reason.
I have to live with this for at least two weeks before applying more dye, but I need to get it cut anyway.
It’s kind of… unintentionally AWESOME, because I’ve always wanted hot pink hair, but I’ve never had the balls do to it intentionally, even in college when my hair was pretty much always peacock-green.
I’m tempted to change my header to reflect current circumstances. And laugh at myself.
Oh god, you guys, why couldn’t my hair have just gone platinum/white again?
