So... I don't wear makeup. There's no reason except that I never got into the habit. Most of my friends wear that professional looking, subtle makeup and I think they're all gorgeous. But me? Well lately, it's a good day when I remember to brush my hair.
I've been thinking about this lately because, honestly, I've kind of let myself go downhill over the past few months. I lost all but 7 pounds of my baby weight (seriously, nothing to be proud of there), but my body doesn't look anything like it did before I was pregnant: I've got pockets of jiggly everywhere! The clothes I wear to work are pretty unflattering: plain black or striped pants, t-shirt or sweater, and I wear comfy flat shoes. The unbrushed hair and lack of makeup complete this very sad picture.
The Targo? He looks great! He's not as thin as he was when he was running 20 miles per week, but that's good. He was too thin then. He buys nice clothes, he pays an absurd amount for his haircuts, and he has really nice white teeth. (Hmm... this sounds like a sales pitch!)
So, I'm thinking about baby steps. The Targo's parents will be watching Nathan Monday-Wednesday. This might enable me to get back to the gym on those three days. The Targo and I have been working on meal plans, so that we watch what we eat a little more. I'm trying to shower at night (which I hate), so that I'll not only have more time to get ready in the morning, but also that I'll remember to brush my hair. But the makeup. I just don't know. It just seems like another thing that I'll have to do in the morning. And is it worth it?
Do you wear makeup? Have you always worn it, or is it something you acquired recently, in adulthood, when you got that job, when you hit 30?
