365 Challenge Day 310 – Vanity

6 May

As much as I am a spiritual person, I hate to admit it, but I am also pretty vain.  Most of things that we do that help us look better are also very important for health, so it can be to pretend.

Two things.  First, I am investing some money in expensive lotions that may fade sun spots (what I used to call “old age spots”) and wrinkles.  This stuff is expensive!  It’s got retinol, and sun block, and who knows what else.  There is no health benefit whatsoever.  Pure vanity.

Second, I got on the scale this morning, and I’ve gained some weight, maybe about 8 pounds.  I’m not happy about this!!!  Again, I feel totally healthy, and my clothes still fit.  But I don’t like the way it looks.

I’m a little baffled about the weight gain, I’m very active, and I eat very healthy.  But I do eat pretty heavy foods.  I guess I need to lighten up a little.  And maybe ramp up the exercise.  Maybe it’s from my two weeks in Costa Rica.  We ate out for every single meal, and didn’t get as much exercise.  But I have a feeling it must have been creeping up before then too.
