Well, it's been a busy week. The days are flying by and I wish I had more productive hours to utilize. I find the older I get, the faster time seems to fly. The more goals in life I'm trying to hit, the faster the arms of the clock are moving. I wonder if time seems to slow down when you retire, and then speeds up again, as you get older? I guess only time will tell.
Adult acne is not okay. I wish I could have dealt with that as a teen and moved on. But no, clear skin, and then BAM! It's bothering me so much that I now wear cover-up when I go out. I feel that people will stare at my many imperfections. Maybe they will, maybe they won't but when it's affecting my self-esteem, that is an issue. I know what I would like to do (blue light laser) but with the cost, that is not happening any time soon. I've tried dozens of cleansing methods and none of them have worked. So I'm doing the elimination diet, again. This may be round number 3 or 4 in the last 7 or 8 years. It will be dairy.
I'm on day 2 or is it 3 of having no dairy. No cream, milk, my precious Greek yogurt or cheese. These are important sources of protein, not so much the cheese, for me. But I'll have to get protein in other ways. More meat, I guess. Quinoa, which I love. Spinach, various greens, which I eat a lot of now. Dairy free, protein powder. That is going to be a hard one, because most of them are disgusting and have too many artificial ingredients for my liking. Anyway, I'm giving the dairy elimination a try for a month (I'll do my best). I may post before and afters, to share the difference. I'm not sure yet. Although I think I did post acne pictures before, somewhere on this blog.
Anyway, I have a busy day, so I'm off. Have a great Friday & weekend!
Till next time,
