Day 5 turned out to be a fabulous one. I got up early (for me!) and hit the road. I spent five hours (including 2 hours of driving) getting my hair done by my oh-so-talented friend. Not trying to hide my gray, but I do appreciate getting it blended in a little bit!
|Look at this fabulous hair...it looks like Mother Nature painted it, doesn't it?|
Doesn't she do a fabulous job? The gray is still there, but didn't she do a wonderful job blending it in? She is so worth driving for.

All in all, I think Day 6 was a productive and successful Paleo Challenge day.
On to Day 6 - Cinco De Mayo!! I finally had a good night's sleep and got my point for sleepingWe stayed Paleo all day, until dinner. Then, like much of the country, we headed out to our local Mexican restaurant and enthusiastically celebrated Mexican Independence Day! Nope, not a Paleo meal...but that is okay, because I'd planned for a cheat meal and was strict for the day leading up to our meal. My points for the day won't be good, but this is life, isn't it?

juice, the first batch of oil, the salt, and the mustard powder.
|This is after I drizzled in the one cup of oil! It emulsified properly...woot!|

And Day 6 of the 30 Day Paleo Challenge concluded with a double feature:
Where the Boys Are for Buttercup,
followed by Blade Runner for Valiant.
