back from the abyss..also known as my house.
I organized my makeup.
That was amusing to write...my 'makeup' used to consist of a tube of lip gloss, eyeliner and well...that was pretty much it...blush if it was a special day.
Now I have a drawer of eyeshadow, a drawer of blush and pressed powder and a cup of eyeliners, a cup of lip liners, about 20 lipsticks and brushES.
Once I found out applying makeup was like drawing a picture I was hooked.
Now on to the title of my post.
There used to be a phrase in my vocabulary that took a detour somewhere along the way (over the last few months) on my journey to good health.
NO, THANK YOU.
Said at birthday parties, adult nights out, movie nights with the kids, and sunday dinners.
Said to a variety of waiters at Three Margaritas who never saw me enter their doors because I wouldn't (couldn't without folding like a cheap suit)
I would merely glance longingly in it's direction and whisper a sad and solemn "no, thank you".
No thank you to your chips and freshly made salsa"...
"No thank you to your creamy spinach enchilada with cheesy rice and coleslaw"
No thank you to your icy cold root beer!"
Now for the foresseable future *except thanksgiving day and Christmas Eve*...I will be saying no thank you to any calories above and beyond 1500...
So, farewell buttery crackers....
till we meet again..after I reach goal.
Say it with me....
No thank you.
Great night at the gym...450 calories burned, 150 situps, upper body toning I will go into my new routine tomorrow.
Tonight I am just going to blog, comment and take a shower and go to bed before I eat.
