What not to wear

I love Stacy and Clinton. I've noticed on their show "What not to Wear" that for the women who are hard to fit they have the clothes altered. Now, I can't afford to take my clothes to be altered so I've been practicing a little on those cheap shirts I got at the Salvation Army. I can risk ruining a $1.50 shirt. Most of the time for me to get a shirt that fits across the bust the bottom of it is way to wide. I altered three tee shirts this morning by tucking in the side seams and it made a big difference. I even got brave and shortened a more expensive shirt that I bought last year and never wore because it was just too long - looked like a night shirt when I put it on. I like it much better now.

I might even get good at this.

Third trimester bitching

The bad news: my hands and feet are so swollen and painful, they make me want to cry.

The good news: I haven't noticed my back hurting in several days!

It's all perspective, I guess.

Only a few more weeks....

latest news????

I guess you have all heard or read that now "they" have decided that we don't really need to drink 8 glasses of water a day. Ooops.

I was reading an article today that made me happy in my heart about Resistant Starch. Have you read anything about it?

Supposedly certain starches (potatoes, grains, and beans) after they are cooked and cooled they create the resistant starch (the starch becomes crystallized) a form that resists digestion. You have to eat them cooled (not reheated) to get the benefits.
It works as a fiber, it increases your bodies ability to burn fat, fills you up and reduces hunger. You don't absorb the carbs because they are crystallized and you can't digest them.

The article said it had other health benefits too.

A half to one cup a day is all you need.

Here is the list of foods they had in the article:
Potatoes and Yams
Brown rice

I had about a 1/2 cup of black beans and corn today.

Interesting, huh?

Make-up primer

It turns out the ingredients found in pretty much all make-up primers are the same as in this product: Monistat Soothing Care Chafing Relief Powder-Gel. Don't worry, it's not Monistat in the traditional "treating a yeast infection" sense. I bought some at Wal-mart yesterday for less than $7.00 and love it! I didn't need to reapply my make-up at all yesterday--and it was a LONG day. I got this tip through some beauty bloggers, and it's working great so far.
