The Weight of Hair: Tea/coffee Date Sept 2021



Thanks,  Coco and Deborah, I’m sitting here with my hot chocolate (whether it’s cold or hot outside!) and I am musing on just how much hair actually weighs, and whether or not I’ve found the perfect exercise to make my Achilles happy.

Good thing Mr. Judy got a few good pics in the beginning, but he wants more!

I’d tell you Albie seems to have gotten camera shy. He still comes to visit some days, but every time Mr. Judy has tried to take photos, he quickly runs away. Some of the birds in ME, though — they were posing for us!

I’d tell you a while back I went on the hunt for a decaf peppermint green tea. I’d managed to buy enough of the Trader Joes version — or so I thought, but eventually I knew I wouldn’t quite make it until they were back in the store (it’s a seasonal item). I finally found what seemed like a similar tea here (Amazon Affiliate link).

When I finally decided to try it, I realized it wasn’t just similar, it was the same tea in different packaging.

If we were enjoying tea/coffee . . .
I’d tell you when I created my 3 poses to activate your glutes video (here, ICYMI), I did monster walks for the first time in a very long time — along with two other exercises. The next day I did my 6 mile long run. While my ankle has been pretty good, it often aches randomly — and not so randomly at the start of a run. No ache. Coincidence?

On the other hand, with a week off running while we were in ME (but lots of walking and some hiking), my Achilles seemed completely happy. I don’t plan to give up running though!

There were many more after this photo. . . we gave some to a neighbor but I’m eating them now!

If we were enjoying tea/coffee . . .
I’d tell you the universe was taunting me before my Colonscopy. My tomatoes started to ripen just when I couldn’t eat them. Those Mezcla protein bars I reviewed here? I’d ordered more after the first two I tried. They also arrived just as I couldn’t eat them!

You know, this photo is so much better than my HS graduation photo! Thanks to Mr. Judy & my iPhone

If we were enjoying tea/coffee . . .
I’d tell you I wonder just how much hair weighs. Yes, I finally got my hair cut in July, in case you missed that! I don’t always track my weight, but I was on the pre-Colonscopy diet and wondered about it. One day I’d suddenly lost a couple of pounds. It stayed that way the whole week, too. 

Suddenly it occurred to me that that 2 pound loss followed my hair cut. My hair was very long, but seriously, I don’t believe that it weighed 2 pounds. If only losing weight was that easy maybe I’d shave my head (just joking)!

Do you feel lighter after a hair cut? 

Are you surprised that two different places sell the same tea, with different packaging? 

What is your go-to miracle exercise?
