Ouch…

My last day at my old job was Thursday and I am trying to relax.  Today I did the Ultimate Taebo DVD and I made it through the whole workout with no incident until I looked down and noticed that my belly piercing was gone.  Crap!  It is still healing so I knew that I had to put it back in ASAP or it would close.  Little did I know that it would close so quickly.  LAWD HAVE MERCY…the pain!!  I didn’t know that my butt had legs.  It had started to close…right in the middle of the piercing.  My daughter was there to help me while I was laying down trying to get the jewelry back in.  After almost 45 minutes I was able to reopen the hole and secure the jewelry.   That was followed by a hot shower and a sea salt soak.  I just hope it doesn’t get infected.  This is something that I have wanted for a long time and I really want to keep it in place.  Sigh… I guess I did so much ab work I loosened the ball and it fell out.  My stomach is getting flatter and the loose skin is better.  I guess with continued exercise it will look good enough for me to venture out with a tankini.  I was asked if I would get plastic surgery in the future…I don’t think I will.  The loose skin is bad and I am sure it would be way worse if I hadn’t added exercise to my diet.  I have stretch marks from back to back pregnancies and for gaining a great deal of weight.  If I were to have a choice of loose skin and a 28 inch waist or skin that is tight with a 44 inch waist…I will always choose the 28 inch waist.  I am no longer in danger of diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and the list goes on.  Having a tight belly with all of those ailments is just not worth it.
I decided to get my hair highlighted again…it looks really nice but I will have to take a picture tomorrow.  The hot shower made my flat ironed hair go wild and curly.  Right now I look like a lion.  A crazed lion because of the pain in my belly.  Once I square away the head I will take a picture of my newly highlighted hair…I think it took some age off me.  I’m very happy with the results…
This weekend will be spent BBQing with my Baby Brother and watching my Sister in Law for signs of labor.  She is 17 days away from her due date and she is sitting really low.  I have a feeling that she will be going into full labor sometime this week.  I can’t wait to meet my new niece Leiana.  The baby feelings are strong in me, I don’t want a baby but I sure love to hold them and spoil them.  She is so ready to have this baby and I am ready for her to have her as well.  I wanna hold a newborn!!
Since I am no longer going to be working at the Commissary my eating will basically be on plan.  I will not have access to all the food that I did before so it is a perfect time for me to go back on the Kimmer Experiment to get deep into ketosis and lose the cravings.  I just don’t want to be haunted by the vending machines that the Army likes to put into buildings.   I can do this…I am already loving the results of Amped and low carbing.  My three pack is back and while I was trying to put in the piercing back in I could feel the ab muscles working.  My husband and his troops are doing really well on the diet plan I sent them.  I sent them the Paleolithic (Caveman) Diet that incorporates fruits and nuts into the plan.  The weight loss will be slower…but they will feel better while on it and they will be able to eat given the choices available in Iraq.
I am tired…the pain medication that I took to take the edge off the piercing is kicking in…I have more to say but the keys are swimming right now.  I will be back tomorrow with pictures of my new do, my going away party, and the big event…The Girl’s promotion to the 9th grade!  I am so proud of her!!
Later…
