***I did not write a post yesterday. Instead, I got my hair done- cut and highlights. I broke two of my own rules. I vowed to never dye my hair until I had to (to cover grey) and to not do bangs. What can I say? I got bored and had to change it up a little.
***I also wrote a guest post for Annie at Cookies, Chaos, and Conversations that she will post on Sunday. I secretly think she gave me the Sunday time slot because NO ONE reads blogs on Sunday and she was afraid I would piss off some people. I did not disappoint-I cursed and threw in a little politics. I considered putting this in the post to complete my full alienation of all her readers, but I decided to put it here instead. I know some of you may not appreciate it, but that's Ok, we can agree to disagree (and that you are wrong and Sarah Silverman is funny!) So mark your calendar to go and comment on her blog on SUNDAY- don't embarrass me, please?!!!
***Today is my birthday! 36, for those of you who were wondering, I'm 36. For my birthday, I'm going to get a pedicure and pray that John and Barack come through with my entertainment for the evening... please have the debate, please have the debate, please have the debate! I plan to have
*** I went to Target yesterday and found the true beauty in a fall vacation to the beach- I can get summer clothes for cheap! I present my vacation wardrobe- all $65worth (not one item was more than $4.48!!!) I also bought them in a size that was a little snug to keep me motivated to keep my ass on the stair climber!!!
***To keep me honest, I have joined forces with new Twitter friend, Lisa, who is on the same weight loss journey. Thank God it's not a competition because this is what she wants to get back to...
No photo shopping, folks! She was a model, can ya tell? Looking at her pictures will either totally depress me or keep me motivated. She's really sweet so it's hard to hate her-even though, let's be honest, if I saw her on the street, I would totally hate her! Although, my destination is a UNIVERSE from hers... I'd just like to take a picture where I don't look like a big fat doofus. I'm alright, no, I'm insistent on wearing a cover- up OVER my swimsuit- non- negotiable!
***As I've explained before, I know I am not photogenic, but subtle hints are not lost on me! Lisa was giving
Posing Tip #1: Always angle your smaller eye (most people have one) toward camera...closer to lens=larger in photo
Posing Tip #2: Slight head tilt to side and away more interesting, unless you have a really narrow face. Then, straight on is best.
Posing Tip #3: Place all your weight on your "back foot"...the one away from the camera. This is an easy 10 lbs. off visually.
I look like a complete dork! The picture of my highlights turned out pretty good though, no?
Let's hope I have better luck with my weight loss!!!
