The 1st Reward

So last night I got my hair cut and my brows done. I have been going to the same women for over eights years.  I was referred to her by the owner of the salon when she was just starting out. I was a little scared but I was sick of other stylists making me look like an old lady. So I took a chance and I ended up loving her!
 Unfortunately I found out last night that she got a new booth with a floor to ceiling mirror.  I was horrified when I first sat down! I had to do a double take at the reflection staring back at me.

I am one of those women who believe that she is still slim even though I am wearing a size 22 pants.(Obviously I have avoided photos of myself for many years) So this full length mirror shot in high-lighting was a real eye opener. Is that a double chin coming in? Are my arms really that big?  Well that would explain why the sleeves never fit right!  And to think all this time I was blaming the clothing manufacturers!

Since I had to look at the magnifying mirror for a while I realized that my face is really starting to show it's age. I have never been into makeup or a beauty routine.  I grew up a tom-boy and was never really introduced to makeup.  I dabbled here and there but always ended up looking like Dr. Frank-N-Furter from Rocky Horror Picture Show. (Love that movie!) So I only use cover-up to even out my tone. This magnifying observation made me ask what I could do for my face to freshen it up.

My stylist told me about the treatment she gets right there at the salon.  She said it is was called a SilkPeel. It is a microdermabrasion that sucks all the toxins out of your pores and then adds nutrients and vitamins to your face. I would say that is just what I am looking for this tired looking face of mine!

So my reward for making it through the first 30 days of clean eating will be this fabulous SilkPeel.

Stay Tuned
