Turns out to be a cyst and nothing to worry about. I can get it cut out at any time (jeez, I hate needles and cutting utensils aimed at me) but it will require a stitch or two.
Also asked about skin care. Here is my current skin care regimen: wash my face with a bar of Zest or Irish Spring (or whatever is on sale). That's it. Dermatologist was surprised and amazed. She at least said my skin looked great and she didn't see any wrinkles. I disagree but that was nice. Hers was flawless.
Wanna know the #1 thing that ages your skin and gives you wrinkles? The sun! It is recommended that you put on a light sunscreen before you put on your makeup or walk out the door every day. She recommended one for me called SkinCeuticals Physical UV Defense. I tried it yesterday and it's not heavy at all. Very nice.
The next thing she recommended was changing my soap routine. Here are the 2 cleansers she recommended which can be found at CVS Pharmacy. Just pick your favorite:
Before I left she asked me some questions about my bodybugg. She wants one. :) And speaking of bodybuggs can I just say how much I love that Tara has a bodybugg tan line? LOL
Breakfast: Carb Check Bagel with 1 Tbs. chocolate peanut butter (4 pts; 225 calories) and a Rock Star (0 pt; 20 calories)
Rushed to take the kids to PE at the Y but it was my "off" day so I didn't exercise.
Stopped at Starbucks for a Venti Espresso Frapp with 2 Splenda (2 pts; 150 calories) Taking pics of your food is a great visual reminder. I totally forgot to log this in my points until I was going through the pics for this post. Also had a Fiber One Bar (2 pts; 140 calories)
Snack: 100 calorie cocoa almonds (2 pts; 100 calories)
Even though it was my day of rest I couldn't miss spinning. I was looking so forward to it. I dragged Rachel along with me this time. We both had a great time. I may have to start taking this twice a week. LOVE it. I did 15 miles in 45 minutes. Have you tried spinning?
Dinner: 2 black bean burgers crumbled over lettuce with FF cheese (6 pts; 320 calories) and broccoli with an ounce of 2% Velveeta (2 pts; 120 calories)
Dessert: Holey Donut low fat chocolate crumb (3 pts; 150 calories) I wouldn't have eaten this had I remembered about the frapp earlier. :( Oops.

Not a very high deficit today. At least not like usual. At that deficit it will take me 4 days to lose 1 pound. See how important exercise is when losing weight? :)
