Day 27: Exams, Boredom and Guthy-Renker

You might have noticed that i haven't really been keeping up with my food diary. There are two reasons for that and the first is that i'm consistently eating the same thing so instead of torturing your eyeballs with lists of the same foods weekly, i'll only be writing when i've eaten something i wasn't meant to eat in the first place. Another reason is that i've pretty much lost my motivation for shrinking because i feel like i've hit a plateau and my attempts to motivate myself recently havent been working. So instead, i've just been trying to stay healthy and workout out 5 times a week for at least 30 minutes. Of course, sometimes i've worked out an extra 30 minutes on some days just because i'm upset for no reason and need an avenue in which to release the pent up anger without coming across as a psycho. I know i have my goal of being a size 14 by the 30th of this month but if i don't get there, i'm going to try my best not to beat myself up about it. Instead, i'll be looking to Beyonce for some motivation as girlfriend sure knows how to work her curves. I've got exams coming up this week and one day the next week so i probably wouldn't be doing much blogging but i sure am bored already of studying for the exams. Just in case you're wondering why there's no space or paragraphs between post sections, blame my laptop or blogger because i actually put the spaces when typing!
Recently, i've been having trouble sleeping and sometimes i've been up all night till about 7am in the morning before i finally fall asleep. To catch up on the time instead of imagining pink butterflies fluttering on my ceiling, i've been watching the paid infomercials they usually show on TV and i came across Guthy-Renker who's responsible for marketing Sheer Cover mineral makeup and Proactiv solutions. They also have Cindy Crawford's beauty line called Meaningful Beauty. The formulation for the skincare was created by Cindy's dermatologist for 13 years who also happens to be well known in the beauty industry, Dr Sebagh. Anyone who knows this guy knows that his stuff ain't cheap and his eye cream can actually make you broke. Jennifer Lopez is also a fan of his cosmetics so i'm actually interested in trying out her stuff and seeing how good it is. But obviously i won't be doing this anytime soon because i've got other more important purchases to make and i've still got 2 tubs of face cream, 1 eye gel and a facial serum to go through before i try this out. But if you're interested and live in Australia, you can find out more about her products and purchase them here. Another product that caught my attention was Youthful Essence by Susan Lucci which is an at-home microdermabrasion system that is gentle enough to be used anywhere on your body like your face, elbow, hands, back, shoulders and feet. I'll probably be trying this out before i actually get Cindy Crawford's products because if this dermabrasion kit works, it'll save me a fortune on paying for my facials as i usually have to get a Vitamin C peel on a frequent basis to try and even out my skin tone and texture. You can find out more about her products here.

For those of you who might be interested in a fitness bootcamp you can do yourselves, i suggest you read the article here and consider investing in Jillian Michaels' 30 day shred workout dvd. But don't say i didn't warn you; i could only do 5 minutes of it and my whole body still hurts.
