7 Quick Takes #47

This is going to be really fast because I need to go nap. I’m teaching at 6:30am 3 mornings a week now instead of only 2, and it’s really hard for me to get up at 5am 3 days a week if I don’t get enough sleep somehow. Naps have really been standing in lieu of going to bed early since we have so much going on most evenings.

Speaking of teaching Pilates, if you are in the Plano area and would like to try out our Megaformer Pilates classes, we are running a great special on VOICE Daily Deals here. I recommend the 3-pack deal. Come see us!

vIf you follow me on Facebook and Twitter, you know that I dyed my hair pink. Here’s a quick pick I took just now wearing very little makeup.

I have discovered that this haircolor really looks better if I wear some kind of color on my lips but, oops, I wasn’t doing that in this picture.

Hopefully this will be invisible to you, the readers, but I’ll probably be migrating this blog to WordPress (it’s on Blogger now) some time in the next few months. I am worried and reluctant to make this move, but there are reasons bigger than my personal preference that are involved. Some of the primary goals are to make the site much more usable for my readers, and make commenting easier.

Everyone here is freaked out about the flu, how about where you are? My friend EcoKaren did a great post today about natural ways to prevent the flu, aside from or in addition to vaccination. I highly recommend checking it out! As for handwashing, remember that last week I blogged about how to make your own antibacterial hand soap from essential oils and castille soap.

It’s January 11 and I have already completed one of the items on my To Do List: making our family blog books for 2011 and 2012. They take about 2 weeks to arrive from the publisher. Can’t wait to see how they turned out!

Have to give one last shout-out to my sponsor, Happy Feet, Healthy Body! Along the lines of flu prevention, remember that she has hand sanitizer pens made from essential oils. If you’ve just started a New Year’s workout routine (or you take one of my classes, haha!), I highly recommend her Lavender bath salts – lavender soothes sore muscles and will help you sleep at night.

  1. I’ve been reading your blog for a few months now, but the pink hair finally prompted me to comment- you are officially the coolest person on my google reader :) Love the hair and love how we had almost identical New Year’s resolutions (including the blog books, which you’re ahead of me on). Thanks for the great blog!!!!

  2. Thank you so much, Heather! Love your post about living on $70/week, that seems really amazing. Thanks for reading!!
