Here go.... AGAIN!

I'm back on the wagon. John and I joined Weight Watchers on Monday.. we are doing well on it. :) We eat not only healthier food, but also better tasting food when we are on it. I'm hoping to lose 25 pounds in 3 months and to work out 12 hours this month. The exercise ticker is in minutes because it is easier for me to input how long I worked out when I do it in minutes rather than fractional hours.

Anyway, I hope that you will follow along with me. Check out my new weight loss channel on YouTube:

So please please please let me know what you are interested in. :)

Major Acne.

I know this is something that is very common in teens, as well as adults. The worst four letter word... ACNE! It just makes us cringe. I'm sure we have all been there. Growing up I never got much acne. A little on my back and chest from being in softball but it wasn't that bad. I rarely got any on my face, I'd maybe have one pimple at a time - during finals, MAYBE two. And they were few and far between. I considered myself lucky - I truly was. I thought I was destined to be one of those people with almost always flawless skin.

Boy was I wrong!

I started really breaking out when I got to be about 20, still it wasn't that bad. I had to start washing my face regularly and it would clear right up, and then I'd get lazy about it and it would sometimes resurface. I thought that was as bad as it was going to get.


I am now 23 and am experiencing the worst acne I have ever had. About 6 months ago I started ordering ProActiv. I used it religiously for about 2 weeks and then yet again, got lazy. My face was so broken out - it was truly embarrasing. It still it. I started using ProActiv again last week and a funny thing has happened...

My face looks worse!!!

I don't know if it is from residual stress from the week before or what, but I thought that by using my ProActiv, it was supposed to clear up - like it always had before. I'm hoping that it is just the stress... this is NOT ok. I can cover the color of it with concealer but I can't cover the bumps.

Tomorrow I'm going on a little bit of a shopping trip - not much, just some drugstore stuff that I've had my eye on as well as going to Sephora with my mom. I'm going to get the Sephora facial brush. It is kind of like a toothbrush for your face. I really want the Clarisonic but it is anywhere between $149 and $225. I don't have that kind of money to spend, and if I did - it wouldn't go toward that (unless I REALLY need it)! There is also a "dupe" for it made by Pretika. This one is only $50 from Bed Bath & Beyond and you can almost always find 10% off or $10 coupons for one single item in their mail fliers. I was really excited to try this, but then I read some not so good reviews. I still want to try it but I think I'm going to give the manual facial brush from Sephora a whirl. It is only $5 so I figure if it doesn't work, no big deal - I'm only out $5. If it doesn't work, I might try the Pretika one but I'm not sure on that.

A facial brush (be it electric or manual) is supposed to deep cleanse the face and remove more bacteria, dirt, and oil than just using your hands. I am very much in need of clear skin - when my skin is clear, I just feel more confident and I feel better about myself. Isn't that what we are all striving for anyway?

Below are some pictures from last Friday (when I started ProActiv again) and others from tonight. You can see that my face is in severe trouble. Crap!

Stop bitching.

Okay, in my previous post I just said that I want to have a baby and I need to get in shape to have any sort of hope of having that happen. Well, today is that day. I guess tomorrow would be more like it. Anyway, January 14, 2010 I'm starting to eat better and workout. Now I know 6 hours of exercise in the next 2 weeks isn't much but we are moving so I need to concentrate on packing - and hey, it's more than I'm doing now.

After my ortho appointment tomorrow (today) morning, I'm going to get Jamba Juice and then it's off to the gym. Then packing for forever. Right now, I need to take a shower and then go to bed.

xoxo... Please help me stay on track!! Together, we can do this. :)
