Wednesday 13 May 2009

Hmmm I'm thinking I need to revamp my 'grooming' routine. I was told yesterday that I look "shite". OK, so it was put slightly differently but that word was definitely used and I was the topic of the conversation. And she spoke to my manager afterwards and soon I was presented with a new uniform order form to complete (with big smiles) and advice that I should wash my clothes with the lights, etc. (for anyone that wants to know, I don't have enough clothes to divide into light and dark loads - that a family thing, not a single person thing. I do use stain remover and soak whites though)

Been stewing over it since yesterday because I simply couldn't make up my mind what I thought of hearing that. Should I pretend I didn't hear it, should I think the message-bearer is just superficial and judgemental or should I look at my appearance and see what I think.

So far I've decided a bit of the last two - The woman that said it, who's often really nice but can be a bit of a .... ummm... I don't know. You know those steriotypical ppl? Kinda like Keeping Up Appearances that drive a 4wd with 7 seats to carry three kids plus friends to all sorts of extra curricular events. Has her kitchen redone in the latest styles, uses the words "hideous" and "devine"... you know what I mean?

OK so I'm babbling. I've decided she's too superficial for me and that maybe I should do something about my appearance. I don't know what that is though. I keep my clothes clean and I have showers. I do my hair (well, I either brush it or put it in a pony tail - I only have two hair styles). I rarely wear any makeup... sometimes some lip gloss if I'm in the mood. I don't wear jewellery. I keep my eyebrows and nails manicured and I keep my hair dye up so I don't have roots (for too long). Isn't that enough? I guess I'm lazy. I go through phases of remembering to use moisturiser but then I go through phases of not using it.

I don't know. What should I do?

Update to previous blog entries:
The better eating only lasted to Wednesday. I didn't plan properly, got hungry without having food prepared and that was the end of that. I don't know how to plan :(

As for the exercise blitz, I hurt my back and as this is the third time this year, my trainer and I have realised this is going to be a permanent issue we need to be aware of. So I'm doing "rehab" on it at the moment, nothing strenuous.
