... which I don't think is bad at all, all things considered. It's just that I have to go to a dinner party tonight, and I'll be seeing an old friend with whom I'm EXTREMELY competitive and I hoped to look stunning. But, alas, my digestive woes have taken their toll on both my stomach AND my skin. (Seriously, I look like crap... and my skin feels dry and gross so I FEEL like crap as well.)


BUT I'm drinking some hot tea right now, so I'm hoping it will help me out AND I've made a few resolves:

1. No more dried fruit until my digestive system is working properly. (Shouldn't be impossible since I finished most of the open bags yesterday... :-/ )
2. Finish the book I started over break- Tammy Wynette: Tragic Country Queen. I really love it so far, but I've been spending all my GD time on the computer, etc. (This will make me feel much less like a failure upon my return to school.)
3. In addition to my prune juice, drink hot tea every morning.
4. Continue my morning sit-ups and stretch every night before bed.

What do you think?


  1. Sounds good, Doll!

    Emergency remedies for looking good and showing up your friends! Here they are:

    1) Steer clear of fruit, coffee, bread, sugar dairy, onions, chili, mushrooms, beans, lentils. Anything that will cause bloating.

    2) Relieve current bloating with kelp tablets (if you're iodine sensitive, drink green tea. if not sensitive, have both!) Kelp is cheap, ask at the pharmacy/health food store.

    3) Steep a clean flannel in warm green tea and gently wring out excess. Lie with flannel on your face for 5-110 minutes.

    4) Use eyedrops!

    Good luck for the party, my friend! Hope you have a good time. <3. XXX.

  2. Sounds good! Reading more definitely makes life seem productive... Have a great time at the party, and good luck!

  3. Of course I'll be your planner... temporarily ;) And then, once you get the hang of it, you can plan your pretty butt off, haha! It's addicting and makes life SO much easier!

    just remember, things don't always go according to plan so flexibility is a must!
