So too much chocolate and sugar has placed a massive zit right in the middle of my forehead between my eyebrows. Like a bullseye. I've tried alcohol, and I've put Bare Minerals blemish powder on it. It's smaller, but still there, boiling under the surface. I'm nervous that the thing will come to a disgusting head while I'm at work and away from mirrors, completely unaware that I've developed a noxious about-to-explode third eye. Sweet. I love zits in my middle age. Wasn't clear skin supposed to be the trade-off for getting old?
So today was the cleansing, purifying day. Lots of water. LOTS. OF. WATER. And very little else besides lean protein to eat. Breakfast? Cold diced chicken. Mmmmmm... Nothing like a little cold meat in the morning. A little chicken again for lunch. And a Diet Coke. And L came home tonight and made me a taco with the rest of the diced chicken. Because we all know I'd just eat peanut butter with a spoon otherwise. I'm lucky he takes dinner seriously enough to make it because I just hate cooking after work.
We went out and hiked around Yorba Linda for an hour or so tonight, and I feel a little better. A little lighter. Except for the angry red beacon between my eyes. *sigh* Thank goodness for Bare Minerals powder. Covers it right up for the most part.
Did anyone else eat too much candy? It's so hard to resist those little bite size candy bars. It seems so harmless until you've pounded down 7 or 8 of them. Then you not only get bulges, you get zits.
I'm going to Arizona over the weekend for Hayden's 1st birthday. We have a big bag of candy bars left over - since we get next to no trick or treaters. I need that bag to be gone when I come back.
PS: Halloween down and on to Thanksgiving! I'm already starting to plan my menu, but I'm looking for some new ideas. I've gotten a few ideas from some of you, but would love to hear about other special food items or traditions that everyone enjoys. Bring on the holidays!
