I Threaded!

17 Jan

Have you ever heard of threading your eyebrows? You probably have, it’s just as popular as waxing and everyone has heard of that! Well, I have always gotten my eyebrows waxed at Aveda – it costs $15 + tax + tip…it can add up quickly and isn’t that a silly thing to spend so much money on, I mean…eyebrows? When I mentioned this to a friend at work she looked stunned and said I was crazy spending so much and she directed me to a place that does threading for $5 no tax. Sweet huh? So instead of going to Zumba tonight I went and got my eyebrows threaded…quite the odd sensation but my eyebrows are lookin pretty smokin. lol.

Why did I go get my eyebrows done instead of going to Zumba? On the surface it looks like my priorities got screwed and I am not focusing so much on my weight loss…this couldn’t be farther from the truth, I am still thinking about it all the time and constantly working on my eating plans to make sureย I hit my points everyday but my pneumonia is lingering and no way would I last even ten minutes in the Zumba class…sad as it is my lungs just wouldn’t be able to handle it…I feel so old. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

So instead I went and beautified myself a little bit. It’s just as important to take care of the outside in terms of grooming as it is to take care of the inside by eating right and exercising. Cause sure, as we lose weight our innards are getting healthier and our overall body shape is looking better but we have to take care of the rest of us – make all of us look good. ๐Ÿ™‚ This in turn will help boost self esteem and make the hard weeks where the weight loss isn’t so great easier to handle. ๐Ÿ˜€ and hey, it only cost $5 + tip!

So what did I eat today?

29 grams Honey Bunches of Oats with Pecan Bundles = 2 points

1/2 cup 1% milk = 1 point

1 banana = 1 point

1 cup carrot soup = 2 points

1 piece toast = 1 point

1 babybell = 1 point

1 Activia yogurt = 2 points

1 whole wheat wrap = 2 points

2 slices turkey = 0.5 points

1 tbls light miracle whip = 0 points

2 cheese slices = 2 points

3/4 cup baked yam = 2 points

25 grams dates = 1.5 points

1 thinsations Fudge dipped bar = 2 points

Total points eaten is exactly 20 – yah! I have had so much trouble eating my points lately, last week it seemed I either underate or overate I never hit my points and stuck there so today is a total win! ๐Ÿ˜€ I hit my points and did something to help me feel pretty, can’t beat that – especially when you’re sick! lol
