Makeovers and Horror movies

Hey guys,
well, went on post (army base), did a three mile walk and then after tried passing out Angel Food flyer's. It's not as easy as you may think. I don't know why more people aren't taking advantage of this program. It's a really good deal. Thirty dollars will feed a family of four for a week. And it's good food, steak and chicken etc. Well, I guess I'll just keep plugging. If anybody is hard up with the money, and you need to cut back you can go to angelfood ministries.com and see if they are located near you. It's a nationwide program.

Anyway, I am looking in the mirror and realise that one eyebrow is thicker than the other. Things like this will bother me until I correct them. So I decided to do a mini makeover tonight. I plucked my eyebrows, shaved, did a facial scrub, moisturized, and then me and my Sophie did our toenails and our nails. I picked plum and Sophie picked orange. It was so nice to be able to give myself a pedicure. When I was pushing 262, those toenails were hard to reach. Just for giggles, I took my toe and touched my nose. My husband just looked at me like wtf? He doesn't get it, and probably never will.
After I was all done though, he gets up to get his food to take to work (he works the night shift) and he says, "You look nice."
From him, that's a sonnet.
I also caught him staring....twice.
It's fun to flirt with your husband...especially when at one point the marriage was all but dead. It's almost like getting to know someone new.

Think of it as dating without the fear of std's.

So, back to the gym tomorrow. Can't wait really. I was thinking of trying this new Pilate's type thing where I do high reps and low weights to get a thin dancer type body. I saw it on YouTube. I have always admired their legs. If I could actually achieve that look (it looked possible) and I am doing an hour of exercise irregardless, why not? Might as well have what you like.

Oh, I didn't pound on the window last night, but my husband did sneak up behind my oldest and scared the bejeezus out of her, just prior to what sounded like a chainsaw murder scene. Too funny.
I remember being in high school and we were at my friend Rose's house. We were watching Pet Semetery and there is that part at the beginning of the movie where the jogger (or whatever) is lying on the table (apparently dead...his brains all seeping out the top of his head) and he sits up and grabs Louis and says "The soil of a man's heart is stonier Louis."then he falls back down. and breathes his last...well Rose's mom pounds on the window right then, and we all about peed ourselves. Ah, the good old days.
Sitting there last night, I understood the urge.
If you haven't seen Pet Semetery, you should.
So, tomorrow it's yogurt with peaches and honey for breakfast, half a sandwich and an apple for lunch, and some sort of protein and three servings of veggies for dinner.
I am trying to keep my calories at 1550 or less as I suspect I am around 205 right now and want to keep that five hundred calorie deficit.
Keep on keeping on....
Hugs,
Chris

Scaring kids = so funny. Now they will have this memory to look back on, just like you.

Good job with you progress. You are inspiring, my dear.

Well, at least you have eyebrows. Mine are so light, it looks like I don't have any. My mother (dear Lord, help her) tatooed her eyebrows on! I guess it looks OK, but seriously, desperate. And not only do you and I have the same name, we named our daughters the same as well...my 3-year-old is Sophia, though I call her Sophie quite often.

LMAO .."it's like dating without the fear of stds!!" hahhaa, you're awesome!!

My husband said to me the other day and I quote, "you looked nice yesterday"...well if I didn't just jump him right then and there!! I hear you on the 'sonnet' thing!

It's nice to pamper ourselves every now and then! Isn't it nice to be able to paint your toes without sweating or becoming breathless? LOL!!

keep it up girl ..have a good week

I, too, laughed at the dating without std's line. Too funny. Glad that everything is working for you. I want to hit the gym when the new year rolls around. By then I should be in the 100's again and not feeling so self conscious.

Melissa said...

Wow are you on a mission or what? Looks like you are losing lots of weight and a new you is emerging! Congratulations on the compliment from you husband. I remember when I lost my first 30lbs, my husband was so excited!! Love the STD joke.

You're too funny... congrats on the compliment from the husand and the fact that you can touch your nose with your toes. It's the little things that keep us motivated. When I got out of the shower this morning, I noticed the bath towel wraps around my entire body. So I feel you.

Thanks for your nice comment on my blog. You're very sweet.

I tried to watch Pet Semetary when I was at university, but got scared and walked out... I waited for my friends in the foyer.

It's great to catch up with you again!
