In response to a confession. My MIL is the same. Dh's uncle was diagnosed with a heart condition and his wife asked me to show her things in the store that were better options and give her ideas as well as show here where things were located. MIL came with us and kept tying to tell her that Cheetos were healthy because the package says no trans fat. I tried to get her to understand that doesn't equal healthy. When we visit the in-laws everything is deep fried or a casserole full of cream of something with a entire block of velveeta. All veggies come out of cans. DS won't eat their food because he isn't used to fried food, casseroles or canned veggies. The only fresh vegetable they eat are potatoes but even those are fried. My in-laws deemed DS as a picky eater because he won't eat their way.

In response to a confession. My mil makes "healthy" cheesy broccoli. It has a whole jar of Cheez Whiz, several large dollops of margarine, and some frozen broccoli. I once made an apple cake and she raved about how healthy it was because of the apples. Never mind the white flour and three cups of sugar that went into it, lol.

Pet peeve of mine: When my family and DH's family thinks that something is healthy just because it has veggies in it. Newsflash: If a dish is loaded with cream, cheese, noodles, and/or deep fried and covered in sauce, it's no longer healthy. My MIL serves this insanely rich creamed spinach and claims it's so healthy because it has spinach in it.

I've been doing more kickboxing lately. I love how I can get my anger out that way. Plus, it really works my upper body like you wouldn't believe.

In response to a confession. When I am hungry, I usually just chew a piece of gum and power through it. I've done it so long though that I've sort of screwed up my hunger/fullness signals. I did used to take the fiber pills though. They made me bloated though.

Clothes from places like Wish are made in China, and they make the sizes according to the body standards there. So an XL would be like a Medium in China. And we all know that a lot of things made in China are not of the highest quality. I have a friend who keeps ordering from there and other places she sees in ads on FB, and she continues to get ripped off.

Sometimes when I'm hungry I take fiber pills. Usually at work when I don't have time to eat.

I've been getting random compliments on my hair. This is a huge deal because I've stopped going to the salon altogether. I've been cutting and coloring my hair myself. Yes, I said cutting! I learned from watching youtube videos! I did a half-moon bang with face framing layers and long layers through the rest of my hair. I also did highlights by just using a super light shade and painting it on with a little finger brush designed for brushing a baby's teeth (or gums I guess). I was pretty happy with how it turned out, but to have people tell me how great my hair looks is amazing. I feel pretty!

In response to a confession. There is a similar company I've bought stuff from called LTD. The stuff is inexpensive but pretty flimsy. Although...I do like their leggings. It's funny because I see pictures of what they are selling and the actual items are much much smaller IRL.

I've bought stuff from Wish before. Buyer beware. It's cheap because it's all from sweatshops. I know it's hard (damn near impossible) to not buy stuff that is made in sweatshops, but that's what you're supporting. It's a crapshoot as to whether you're getting something decent. And forget about returns. Honestly, you're better off shopping Etsy for things like miniatures.

Not the Official Fascia Blaster. But the same concept:
