How I feel About Applying Makeup Daily

Let me just say, it’s been 22 days into this change and I have no intention of failing this challenge now. (Just a reminder to those who just joined us, I am to wear makeup every day from March 1 – 31st to go along with my blonde hair.)  With the 20/20 vision of hindsight I can honestly say that….

I hate it. 

I really do. 

I know this to be a fact about me, thanks to Pushing Boundaries.

And if I had to do this challenge again, I would make it count for 30 entries as opposed to 1. Some weekends I really don’t want to do it. Many weekday mornings, I would prefer not to have the extra hassle. But I do it, because of this blog.

(**Slight tangent – did you notice? I’m behind in my blog posts by 4. As of yesterday, I was to be at 80. I can still reach 188, but barely.)

I am not a refined and elegant girl even with 42 years behind me. As a child, I would make mud pies for the fun of it. (Not with chocolate. With real mud. Outside.Ask my mother. If I could make money running every day, playing in the mud, or walking in the rain – that’s how I would live.

Here’s the picture of me from this morning with makeup applied. If you squint you can see it.

What’s with the deer in the headlights look?


Oh, and another night doing the recumbent bike. Don’t knock the repeat exercise program.It’s more than I usually do, and tonight I was leaning quite heavily towards doing nothing. In my mind I thought, I can fulfill my exercise quota from Wednesday to Saturday. It would give me 5 days. And that’s how you fall behind.

Ok, below is the information from the recumbent bike. 174 calories for a little more than 30 minutes. (I entered 31 minutes so I could run and get the camera. The machine shows 38 seconds remaining of my time. I was too lazy to do the cool down session which would give me 35 minutes.)

You’ll have to trust me that I did 30 minutes. If you really want a little more proof we can compare to last night. I believe the screen showed 109 calories in 18 minutes.

I was probably biking slower tonight. I was tired. 


As well, related to procrastinating: I do believe my excellent procrastination skills that I developed over my many years, may also be the reason why I am behind in these changes.

Maybe I should make: do not procrastinate a change?
