What I've been up to

Wow time sure does fly. I haven't posted in a month. I'm sorry but I am now addicted to face book but that's no excuse to ignore my blog, especially when I have new followers.
Well for the past month I've seen many changes with my hair. It has ton's of body now & I can feel it on my neck so it's grown quite a bit. I have some bunching going on in the middle of a few locs. I've colored again but this time I didn't braid & band. I used the same brand that I used in my first post about hair dye. I've been using this stuff since 2005 so why change now right? Well this time the color took better & my hair had no significant changes. It's not dry or anything so I suppose it's all good. I don't have any picture's yet so stay tuned for those haven't really gone anywhere to dress up so no photo op's. LOL
I attended a natural hair & health expo in Chicago. My loctician had a booth there so I drove down to support her. She ended up standing in as a model for the hair show. She was so nervous she made herself sick but she looked gorgeous all made up. Shout out to Janela!!! You did great. I'll post some pics from that but they're a little dark. They had a lot of talented ppl participating in the expo. There were poets, musicians, rapper's, singers, you name it they were there. One particular young lady captured my attention more than anyone, she played the harp & the music she played was absolutely beautiful. There was also one particular young lady that was a poet she was out of site I will try & post her video.

I took a 30 day journey on a juice fast. What do I mean by that you may ask? I fasted on fresh juices made with fruits & veggies juiced by me. I made some good one's & I've definitely made some bad ones. I decided to take this journey for spiritual reason's as well as health reasons. I've been on high blood pressure meds for over 10 years & I feel it's time to get off. I have a Dr appt. the Tues before thanksgiving so wish me luck there. I lost 22 lbs on this 30 day journey now I'm eating as close to raw as possible for a week or two. Who knows what I'll do after that although I have given thought to going back on Dr. Ian's 4 Day Diet until I go to the Dr. I'll keep you all updated about that. My Dr. told me at my last Dr. visit that he wanted me under 200 lbs & I've reached that goal. I had a goal of 199 for my Dr. visit but I've passed that up. I hope to surpass it by at least 6 to 8 lbs by my appt. Wish me luck!
