Make it or Break it ... Vitamins

Along with the lathing of my elbows, I will be taking vitamins for my challenge.  I've noticed that I have been a bit lagging lately and I also noticed that I don't feel like this when I take the vitamins.

I made me a homemade calendar, nothing fancy just something to check of the dates.

Make it or Break It

I've had a ringworm/dryness on both my elbows for years now. The look of them has always bothered me and made me a bit self conscience, but when that time come they are already horrible looking with cuts and bleeding.  Once this happens I start to put on cream and it goes away and then it it starts to get better, and I stop and it comes back.  I really want to work on my whole imagine and this (besides my weight) is one of the things that really bothers me about my appearance.
Well, I decided to start a mini challenge for myself (and hopefully I stick with it.) It's take 21 days to make or break a habit, and I want to get rid of these ugly elbows. For the next 21 days I am going to lather them up every chance I get with Bag Balm. My aunt uses this balm on her hands and feet, and she has very nice hands and feet for her age.  So once this is a habit, I should have beautiful elbows.

When the first few greys started to appears, I had the notion that when my hair started to go more grey I would let them grow and leave my hair al natural. NOT!

In the last 3 - 4 months, the greys have attacked my hair and I don't like it! And my new hair-do just made them shine even more. There will be no al natural for me, I'll be dying my hair pretty soon but I'm having a hard time deciding what color.  I've been toying with the idea of going blond but that's a lot of maintenance, but I really don't like how I look with dark hair, decision, decisions.

Power of One Recap

The Power of One challenge had ended and I'm dissapointed in myself that I yet again I didn't complete something, but I hit a few road blocks this past month.

1. My spounce and I have seperated, it was sometime coming but it still a shock to the system.
2. We lost internet connection - We had a major virus and our internet was shut off for a bit because of it.
3. I had major tooth ache - I have been struggling with the tooth for a few months but this last month the infection got worse and with no insurance and no money it was hard to pay for the treatment so I suffered.
4. Dealing with my loneliness has been an issue, and a few times I used food as confort.
5. I've been stressing about being a single paycheck family.

I'm working on trying to get back on track and hopefully by the end of the week I should be chugging along.
