I got an opportunity to wear jeans the other day as it was cool enough where we were. Of course I wore my favorite pair of jeans. I think I wore this outfit out to dinner. This particular evening we stayed at a casino in the San Diego area and were eating at the buffet. The food was okay but the decadence of it all was fabulous!
To recap what I challenged myself to do for the month of July:
1 - two outfits per day - and use them to create an outfit binder
2 - do my eye makeup everyday - documented in the outfit binder
3 - practice putting on eyeliner everyday - documented in the outfit binder
4 - exercise every morning and every night
5 - a compromise with smoking cigarettes - no smoking before 8 pm and then only 1 - 5 times
Well how did I do?
1 - I did this almost everyday. I ended up with 79 outfits in my binder!!!
2 - I also did this almost everyday. I got 30 pictures of my eyes.
3 - I also did this almost everyday.
4 - This one I was less successful on; I probably have a 75% success rate.
5 - Uhh, nope totally blew this one.
In the end I am fairly happy with myself. I think I put too much on my list and in the future I think I will concentrate on one thing at a time.
I am really happy with the results of my outfit binder. I used it to help me pack more efficiently for our last trip. I took pictures of my outfits with me on my iPad and then had a clear idea of what I had with me to wear. I also like the pictures of my eye makeup, but I should have taken better notes about what I did to document it better. Overall I am pleased with my exercise routine. I did more walks and yoga then I have in a long time. More importantly I maintained my weight while eating a bunch a crap this month. If you are interested in my weight, I am currently 156lbs and am 5'9". Pretty good huh?
Smoking - well I blew that challenge, but in all honesty I don't think my heart was in the from the start. I am not going to give up on this one, but I don't know yet when I am going to try again, maybe next week actually. I'll let you know.
Another thing that I think these challenges did was to prompt me to do some other things. I emailed my friend B about this website. I also talked with both M and C about my crossdressing, which was rather unexpected. These three people were also the first people outside of my wife and my sister that I have told. Another thing is that I created a clothes flip card device to help with choosing outfits. I'll share more about my flip cards later.
Okay, too much already, gotta go!
