For this week's challenge in Challenge of Harry Potter, we had choices of which classes to take. One of mine was Charms, which is to blog about how I'm doing.
Okay...No, make that frustrated.
I'm waiting for the Comcast guy to come. I've had 2 Toll Free calls come in that I didn't answer. Dh always says don't answer just telemarketeers. Well, I'm glad I answered the third call as it was from Comcast. A recording. I think I click to keep the appt between 5-7, but called back to be sure I didn't screw up. (why is it always recordings?). It said we still had an appt between 5 - 7, so I guess it is okay.

Okay, I'm vain. I have some brown blotches on my face that I've been self-conscious of forever...or for as long as I've had them.
I went to the skin doctor (not dermatologist) for my Rosacea, but we got to talking about my blotches. DH was with me as he has Rosacea too.
I ended up getting the foaming gel to wash my face and the skin bleaching
Nu-Derm by Obagi.
It's been 3 days I started out putting the Nu-derm on everyday, but as my face red-blotched, feels tight and chin stings and I'm pealing, I'm only putting it on the brown spots now.
My mil asked why my bottom lip looked like Angelina Jolie? Looks a little swollen a little out. Hey, I look like Angelina Jolie...even if it is just my lower lip.
This morning my eyes felt tight and I thought swollen but feels better.
My dh isn't great at telling when things look different so I don't know if my face is really swollen or just feels like it.
I know this is the normal after affects, but I don't think I can take however long it takes to make a big difference. It also cost too much to just stop using it, I'd never hear the end of it by dh.
We still have to get the meds for the Rosacea as she didn't have it in stock.
Has anyone out there done the skin bleaching? How did it go?

For this challenge, we have to write about our time before Spark, so not to make the same mistakes now that I'm on SP.
I had to look back to my diary for this and it looks like I was doing okay. I was exercising everyday.
I thought I had kept my team from round #7 for my Biggest Loser Challenge team, but can't find it, I must have deleted it by mistake. I like to look back from time to time. Now I don't remember what I weighed back then.
At any rate, I don't think I was doing poorly before SP, I just have people to help support and motivate me now. I've learned a lot more exercise routines too, plus keeping accountable...even if I do fall off the wagon from time to time.

My boggart is my pantry where most of my snacks are located. To fight this boggart, I would think I should picture the worse thing in my pantry...like a giant , but it has to be something we can laugh at. That defeats my purpose of staying away from the pantry. If I can laugh at it, I'll be at the pantry door more often.
Maybe I'll have my dh put a giant picture of a inside, but then there goes my cereal.
I guess I'll have him put in on the snack shelf.
I like to organize that way....a cereal shelf, snack shelf, pasta/rice shelf, fruit shelf (containers of fruit in juice).
