    Spa day today! I gave myself a facial ("mud" mask) and took a longer-than-necessary shower. Combed out my hair and even put a little product into it, even though I had no plans to go anywhere. Since I was primping, I added a little powder foundation and blush.

    I have managed to drink six glasses of water so far, and hope to get another two down before the end of the day, at which point, I will refill my eight-cup pitcher and start chilling it for tomorrow.

    In my daily efforts to effect the transformation from hen to chick, I went on a four mile run/walk today (ran two miles, then walked back).

    Today, I changed from my sweatpants to regular pants as soon as I got out of bed. I also ran a comb through my hair and brushed my teeth this morning. (Hey, for a weekend, that is quite an accomplishment!)

    My hands have been getting really dry lately, between the cold weather, and all the baking (and consequently dishwashing) I've been doing. So I tried to remember to rub some cold cream into them a few times today. I may do an intensive treatment when I go to bed tonight. ...

    I have been noticing, for some time, my downward slump into frumpiness. I didn't like it, but I never felt I had the energy to change it. Less than ten years ago, I had a stranger come up to me in an airport and ask if he could have his picture taken with me, because he wanted to make his friends jealous with how many beautiful women he had met on his travels. While that would never happen in my current condition, I know it is still possible to achieve that level. I can't have disintegrated ...
