Tomorrow morning I am doing something really fun and completely out of my comfort zone. I am doing a photo shoot for Woman's World magazine! The photographer will come to my house and we are going to shoot for about 90 minutes. Inside shots, me making a low sugar meal, and outside shots. It is part of an article I was interviewed for on Jorge Cruise's Belly Fat Cure diet. Jorge's staff submitted several client profiles to the magazine and they picked me!
While I'm pretty excited, I am also completely nervous. The last professional photograph I had taken of my myself? Senior pictures in 1987. Yep, I am old and pathetic! I am going to have my hair "blown out', which is apparently something people do. But I am doing my own makeup, good thing they want a natural look! I am completely inept at makeup application.
The most nerve wracking part? The clothing. No white, no black, no stripes, no prints, no jeans and it needs to be form fitting and bright colors. That is a pretty tall order for a person who has just started rebuilding a wardrobe! But if they aren't too strict on the guidelines, I think I'll have a few things to choose from. I spent most of Saturday at two different malls and will probably end up returning most of it.
No sure what food I'm going to make for the shoot... suggestions? A shake topped with Uncle Sam's cereal, turkey sandwich, chopped salad, popsicles? Maybe chicken tacos? Of course I am out of GG Crispbreads at the moment, or I'd do something with them.
I hope I can relax and enjoy the experience a little. My 5 year old has declared I will be famous after this and can visit the White House anytime I want. When I asked him what famous meant he said "Like Dr. Steve O'Shea". And honey, who is that? "The squid expert, Dr. Steve O'Shea Mom! HE is very famous". Hmm, okay, like Steve O'Shea then.
My weight is holding really steady and I just realized with summer and not walking the kids to school I am only get in about 1/3 of the walking/running I did before. I am going to find time to do my big hike/run tonight though, because I think it helps my face look thinner for a day. I think all the pounding drains the liquid from it! I am also going to resist the urge to fast for the next 24 hours so I'll look as slim as possible, and just eat normally.
The article will be in a late August issue, which I will definitely link to it and talk more about! Wish me luck! I am off to clean my kitchen so I don't come off as a complete slob...
