You CAN'T Be Serious!!!

I am getting gray hair!! At first I thought it was just my blond highlights, but then as I looked closer I saw that it was actual gray hair. Okay, now I know I am not 20 anymore, but come on, I am only 30!! I thought I wasn't supposed to start getting gray hair until I was 50. This is just ridiculous! I keep telling Scott that the kids are making me age. It is so true. I have these big bags under my eyes from no sleep, my hair is going gray. What's next?

When I was at the dr. the other day for Kirye's appointment I picked up an article in Diabetes Shoppe, Shoppe Talk. It was on controlling your nighttime snacking. Okay, so after reading this article I was finally able to diagnose myself. I have nighttime eating syndrome. Yes, it's true. Here is a clip:

"Having a small, healthy snack before bedtime can be perfectly acceptable, but nighttime binge snacking can lead to obesity, poor control of blood sugar, and diabetic complications. In fact, there is even a name for uncontrolled nighttime eating-nighttime eating syndrome. People with nighttime eating syndrome may eat as much as 25% or more of their daily calories after dinner."

Yup. That's me. Once Ryley goes to bed it's like a switch turns on and I need something fun to eat. It's like I deserve a little treat for getting though the day with a 2 year old and a 3 month old.

I share your pain. I have found my first two. TWO! I pulled them out just to make sure they were truly white hairs. Yep! To top it all off, as you know I am a little involved in Cosmetology. I found a website from the national cosmetology database with a link to "skin deep". Skin Deep tests and evaluates cosmetics on their "safety". You know....whether or not your cosmetics are eventually going to give you cancer or something. They are ranked 1-10....10 being really bad. So I looked up hair color since I have turned into an even bigger fan since the gray hair discovery. Yep...all the hair colors were, like 8, 9, and 10! Now this was all store color....I'm now investigating professional lines. Can you believe that? I'm so depressed.
