I guess this is a question about formatting

When writing past tense, first person - or third person for that matter - how do you handle thoughts?  Do you put them in past or present tense?  Do you use italics or other marks (// **) or do you use "" and write "I thought" or "s/he thought"?

Here's an example:

Glaring at the image in the mirror, I pulled my hair back, holding the bulk of it behind my neck. Well, that suits the piano jaw a bit better.

The shift in tense bothers me but I'm not sure it's incorrect.
