Weekending & Shizz [2-13]12:00 AM
+ Started the weekend off right with my monthly facial acupuncture treatment. I met my bestie there (it was her first time) and she LOVED it! Yes, another convert! She'll be joining me once a month for this amazing, natural treatment that shaves years off your face.
+ I decided to take a small break from exercise from Tuesday until Saturday to give my body some time to heal. Apparently, bruised ribs and a strained back take more than 5 days to heal but I can't not workout so I tried to take it easy during Saturday's 2hr Muay Thai class even though I was scolded non-stop by my trainer and gym members ("what are you doing here?! you should be resting!") so he paired me up with a newer member so I could take it easy.
Compliment of that day:
Gym member: wow, your "taking it easy" punches and kicks are my hardest punches and kicks. I don't want to know what your hits are like when you're not injured.
+ Went to a Beauty Counter social my friend was hosting. I get nervous going to these things because I'm a sucker for a good sales pitch, skin products and makeup.
I bought two of these lipbalms (they were on sale) and a sheer lipstick even though I rarely wear lipstick but it was such a great colour - just a slight hue deeper than my natural lip colour. I'll probably do what I normally do with new makeup (that I rarely wear): wear it the first week and then forget I have it.
+ It was snowmageddon on Sunday so we stayed in and baked - cookies for Kayla, grain free bread for me.
These cookies are legit. I had 1/4 of this cookie and man, I wanted to stuff this whole thing in my mouth. They're soft and chewy inside with a slightly crunchy bottom.
+ Speaking of snow, we always shovel our elderly neighbour's driveway. She's the nicest lady and continues to bring us homemade yummy dimsum-like treats as a thank you even though I have told her multiple times not to because we are happy to do it.
Yesterday she brought us these homemade sesame balls. If you haven't had these at dimsum, you're missing out. They're so bad for you but ohsogooooood #ballsinmymouth.
+ I think I need to reevaluate the whole "I need to stay at 130lbs to keep my period" and remind myself that it doesn't mean "eat all the things".
+ Preparing my final contributions for tax season 2016. I just submitted the first of two lump sum contributions towards my retirement investments; 2nd lump sum payment will be submitted last week of February #maxthatshitout.
+ It's official -- my old Typepad account has been cancelled.
+ Booked a luxurious facial in two weeks because treat yoself.
