16 Months ...

The transition continues! It's been 16 months since I last coloured my greys.

Growing out the dye is a long process that tests my patience on a daily basis ... talk about delayed gratification!

But I know the day will come when all the unhealthy, brassy stuff is gone forever.

Until then, here is the BEFORE

February 2018

... and the DURING

June 2019

Looking forward (more than I can say) to the AFTER.

Osteopenia ... cont'd

It's been about a month since my last post so I thought I'd update you on what's been going on with me and my osteopenia.

When my doctor's advise fell short as to what to do moving forward, I decided to take my health into my own hands.

So ... I've been scanning the Internet, gathering information and learning, learning, learning.

There's a lot of information out there, but the best source I've found so far is the Better Bones blog written by Dr. Susan Brown. Here I found everything I needed to know, from supplements to diet and exercise, meditation, and stress management.


I feel better.

I feel hopeful.

Osteopenia

A recent bone density test (DEXA) showed that I have osteopenia.  A pretty significant loss of bone in just one year has taken me to the borderline for osteoporosis.

My doctor suggested I start taking less calcium from supplements and more from my diet. I'm thinking of getting a second opinion.

When was your last bone density test? What did you doctor recommend?

My Blow Dryer Died

My blow dryer has gone to blow dryer heaven and I'm looking for a new one. 

I think my Conair Infinity Pro was at least 20 years old.  It did the job; it dried my hair.

Now I'm looking to achieve 'salon quality results' (smooth, frizz-free, shiny locks) at home. However, the variety of wattages, styles and brands available today is, to say the least, OVERWHELMING. 

Not to mention pricey, YIKES!

So far, this one looks pretty good and I may just get it:


Cute, eh?  Are you familiar with it? 

What's your take on blow dryers? Do you have one you can't live without? 

Please share and I will be forever grateful!
