    • So, with the exception of my morning walk, I have been doing paperwork all day
      (Fortunately, I was able to work in a load of laundry, which was incredibly necessary)
      I might make a pot of coffee and stay up until all this is done, as it's supposed to be sunny and beautiful tomorrow, and I want to go play.

      Today's Eats were:

      Coffee + CO

      2 Curry-Baked Chicken Thighs

      BAS with spinach, tomato, mushrooms AND A WHOLE DAMN AVO (in honor of Fatty Friday)- topped with a cut-up chicken thigh.
      EVOO/Rice Vinegar dressing (wow that was good).

      PRO: 53.6 (19%), FAT: 95.1 (73%), CARB: 22.7 (7%)

        ITA agree hannahc. I totally agree.

        I thought Keaton was a better batman. Until Christian Bale's Batman came along. *swoons into bat darkness*

          • Heh. It would just be the first time waxing that might be an issue...if you know what I mean.
            I'm SUCH a wuss.

            • hey, congrats on the weight!

              also, i am partial to the keaton batman. i think its because he will always be mr. mom to me, and having him also be the dark knight is just delicious irony.

              • Oh, thanks, Batty!!!
                Still have bounteous fat to lose, though ;-)
                Agree with you on the Keaton....

                  Really? But you're so tall. 150 seems like a normal weight. What's your goal?

                  • That's so very kind, Meatie...but I have a very light bone structure, thin wrists and ankles...and all of my fat (except boobs) is between waist and mid-thigh.
                    It kind of looks as if somebody evil just threw handfuls of it at me, and it stuck

                    Judging by the "Kerrygold Method" (comparing body fat deposits with package of butter)...maybe 6-8 more pounds need to go.

                    You are FINE

                      Flatmates may mistake the noise for something else though... And that last line is making my eyes water!

                      Congrats on the weight Kuno! Nice work

                      • We had a soldier show up to formation one morning with stubble on half his face and the other side extrememly red. He couldn't find his razor.....

                        I was impressed that he sucked it up for half his face before putting the epilady down and saying, "screw it".

                        I can't imagine using it on more delicate areas. YEESH!

                          Me too. You have no idea. I'd shaved for years but I hate the expense, the stubble etc.

                          So here's what I did..... I can't believe I'm saying this. I assume we're talking bikini area (bikini, half brazilian/french, brazilian etc). No LMX on legs....too large an area.


                          Purchase

                          LMX-4 (it's otc)
                          cortisone cream
                          baby wipes - small pack
                          ibuprofen (motrin, advil, store brand)

                          Make Apt
                          choose service provider based on recommendations from friends, yelp etc
                          Timing is everything.
                          plan for waxing around ovulation - a few days prior is ideal- ....you're significantly less sensitive to pain.


                          Prepare

                          1)timing is everything. plan for waxing around ovulation - a few days prior is ideal- ....you're significantly less sensitive to pain.
                          2)trim everything you want waxed to about a 1/4 inch
                          3)so an hour before:
                          shower. thoroughly
                          take 800 mg ibuprofen with enough food to protect your stomach. (a hb egg, marrow and/or nko are perfect - the phosophlipids bond with the ibuprofen which both makes it more effective and keeps it from damaging your gut.)
                          4)dry off, apply several large pea sized blobs of LMX to every bit of your bikini area that will have hair removed....every bit. Use a mirror if necessary. Don't use more LMX...you absolutely can OD on lidocaine. It takes 60 minutes to reach max effect to reach max effect - so be meticulous with your timing
                          5)sit or lay on towel on floor until it's very throughly dry. I usually wait about 10 minutes.
                          6)gather baby wipes, cortisone and head in for the apt.

                          At the appointment
                          • when she leaves the room for you to undress, use baby wipes to wipe off any lmx residue and to freshen up.
                          • keep talking during waxing...use techniques like 'non-focused awareness' ....keep breathing slow and low. very slow and low.
                          • when she's finished, apply cortisone 1x fairly liberally.
                          • soreness is unlikely to persist after she's done....but a nice 'sensitive' sensation is present....good time for great sex



                          Follow up
                          If you have have issues with ingrowns - or even if you never do - use bha or an rx retinoid once a week to encourage cell turnover and reduce the possibility of ingrowns.

                          Since it takes about 6 weeks for each hair to begin to grow back, weekly epilation will be removing only 1/6th of what you'd be pulling out normally. Thus, it's much less painful. Honestly, to me, it no longer hurts....it's just sensation. However, if I let it go past two weeks...ugh. It's not fun but now that I've been doing it a long time, I can manage it.

                            Fwiw, it's more painful on face than bikini 'area'.

                                Do you have a facial hair problem? Also, I want to see the pictures of the bikini area so I can get a better idea of what you are talking about...lol.
