Remember when I needed your opinion? Everyone gave great advice, by the way. Well finally, I chose the pair I liked best, had my eye exam and ordered them.
I'm trying to get used to the new look, having really dark frames now. I even wore them to work today, which is a big step for me because I don't like how I look in glasses generally and it can have this dizzying effect when the tops and bottoms of your view are blurry. That doesn't happen with contacts because everything is clear no matter what.
Alas, I chose pair A! Pair B was cute and had a little of the cat eye funky flair to it, but ultimately, we decided those were a bit too narrow for my face. I have a big face and noggin'...I'm about a 7 1/2 if we're talking hat sizes.
It's definitely going to take some time to get used to them. Not sure if I'll wear them regularly, but it is fun to change it up once in a while. Because of how much I'm running, doing yoga or jumping around at Lifeforce Fitness, contacts will still be my vision staple.
I always think glasses/contacts sort of define you as a person. People get to know you as the person who does or does not wear glasses. I felt the same way with long hair. It was so hard to go short because I'd always seen myself as a long haired girl. Weird how that works.
Are you a glasses/contacts/short hair/long hair kind of person? Now I can see myself both as short and long hair and like both. But I'm still not convinced on being a glasses person just yet.
Anywho, that's all I've got today. We have a SPEED workout on deck tonight with the running group. Tonight's workout is a version of the infamous "Michigan" workout alternating 5 min tempo with hard intervals of anywhere from 400-1200m. We'll see how I survive!
