does this haircut make my ass look fat?
And NO, I do NOT resemble Jenny McCarthy in any way, shape or form, it's just that I haven't had time to do the photo of the "do" and this is the closest I could come to finding something somewhat similar.
After hiding under a mountain of hair for several years now, it was time to update the "do". I'm not too sure how easy this will be to maintain whilst wearing a cycling helmet, and I'm not too sure how annoying it will be while running. Under a swim cap, easy, just shove it under and dive in.
Now that the hair is off, it certainly reveals a few things that were otherwise hidden. Like grey hair, the ever so slight stoop of the shoulders as I not so gracefully age and yes, it reveals the lump on my neck that I've been hiding for a little while. I actually received a compliment on my grey hair as I was leaving the salon yesterday, truth be told, I can hardly wait to have gorgeous grey hair, let's hope its not the mousey bleck grey that some people are saddled with.
As for the slight stoop, well, hopefully it will not go any further. I've been loading up on Calcium and magnesium and I'm going to have to be more diligent on weight bearing exercises for my upper body, spine, arms and shoulders.
The lump, well, it was looked at by a specialist and they do feel that it is just a blocked sebaceous gland, but it is going to be removed by a plastic surgeon and sent for biopsy, just in case. The date has not been set yet, since it is considered a non-cancerous situation. Whew....I just hope that the minor surgery is set either before the cycle tour in June or shortly thereafter. I don't want to have to miss out on swimming this summer!!!
Have I mentioned that I'm considering an event of epic porportion? Well, epic for me, considering I haven't been running any great distance lately, but I'm eyeing the Canadian Half Ironman in September. Okay, so now I've spilled the beans...and yes, this was on my sidebar to do last year before I blew my meniscus...
For now, training is going really well for the Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour, we've been out in all kinds of craptastic weather and this coming weekend is going to be no exception. Rain, Rain and more Rain. Tomorrow I'm planning on an easy 50K ride and Sunday I am cycling 85K with the Kanata Nepean Bike Club. I'm looking forward to cycling with the club this year. I've signed up for some really fun weekend rides that I'll tell more about soon.
Well, I've stolen enough company time, so I'd better haul ass and do some work, Have a great weekend!!
