Happy weekend Sparkles! Let's do the health update first. I am still more tired than I should be, and I still have a low grade fever. Doc and I are staying close. I am on both antibiotic and steroid through Monday. But I promise I am a million percent better. SO MUCH better.
My weight this week shows that I am up 0.4 but I don't believe it. You know how you have those scale blips? Yeah. We've tracked everything we ate this week, and it should be a 0.5 loss. I am serious we tracked every bite. We are SO good. Rather than getting upset I'm just giving it till tomorrow to see if it's a fluke. And if not, we'll continue to do the right things. The scale HAS to let that weight go down if you do all the right things SOONER or later.
My niece is 13. We have FaceTime dates. They are shifting from "breakfast with Auntie Dawn" dates to "make-up" dates. For this make-up date I let her research everything, and be the leader. Good leadership training in a safe environment. She did a great job. We tried an eggplant color look. Frankly, I've never done that color well. We did one eye with a work-appropriate look. I loved it! I will wear this to work now that I've proven I know how. Here's how it looked...
And we tried a glamour look two ways. The first way is without the intensity. A litlte more eye liner, a little wing...
I'm still ok with it at that point. Then we went FULL GLAM layering on more liner, more cat-eye look, darker colors. I must tell you friends, I do not think I am a FULL GLAM girl unless it is for Halloween. I think I look like a raccoon. Because of the eggplant I think I look like a raccoon who got punched in the eye.
We kept telling each other, "if we're not going to try now when it's just us, when will we try?" So we went crazy. We liked 2 of the 3 looks. We're going to set another date. I think she did a super job.
How are you doing?
