Day 8. Have a beauty secret (e.g. hair tip, make up tip)? Share, please!

Has anyone looked outside? If you are anywhere near Seattle you knwo it is absoutly FAB outside. Thank you Jesus for the sun, we were forgetting what it looked like!

I am back to work and things are starting to feel a little more normal. Still giving myself shots two times a day and not being able to breathe quite yet is making this all seem very very weird. Well I guess, because it is! I "ran" yesterday. I want to make sure that when I am feeling back to 100% that I haven't lost all my fitness and have to start at step one again with half marathon training. We just don't have the time for that people! But I also understand I need to not be dumb and pass out on the treadmill. So yesterday I hopped on and decided to go for 36 minutes. I was supposed to run 4 miles that day and at a 9min mile it would have taken me right around 36 minutes. The plan was to run every other song until 36 minutes was up. I did just that, and at the end of most songs I felt like I could keep going. So I feel like I am moving in the right direction! Today I am going to try to run 2 matter how slow, without stopping but we will see. Please pray that these meds are working.

Scare of the night last night....I was doing my hair before we went to small group leader training and the ID.IO.OT that I am, I hit my head with my brush. It hurt a little bit, but my first thought was the nurse telling me, "if you hit your head, even what you think might be trivial, you need to go in to the ER." Can you just imagine me going into the ER and them asking what's wrong and me having to tell them I hit my head with a brush! Ugh! After AA and I talked about, a quick call to the nurse and some research on line we decided to not go into the ER. Who knew I had to be so careful with my brush!

Okay on to the secrets!

I got nothin'....I mean absolutely NOTHING! I guess the one thing that I would say that gives me confidence and helps "clean" me out, would be exercise. I feel like I look better and have more confidence when I exercise daily. I am not sure how big of a secret that is but I do have some things I cannot live without:

1. MAC anything...but most importantly mascara. You will RARELY see me without mascara on.
2. Tresmeme Hairspray....I have the thinnest, do-nothing hair, so I need a little somein' somein' to help it be "alive"!
3. Ponytail hair goes up almost everyday at the end of the work day.
4. eyes are just a little but more open and beautiful with a cup of coffee in me. :)

So as you can see I got nothin'. What are your beauty secrets. Please share!

  1. My beauty secret that i ABSOLUTELY can't live w/out is my Tweezerman tweezers. I can pluck, pick, pull, peel off, and of course tweeze anything on my face or else where. They also make a great craft tool!!!!
