Since I don't do plumpers, I don't really have many recommendations on what to try. The only ones Ive ever used are Bare Escentuals Buxom Lipgloss. But it worked really really (too) well for me soooo....

Basics and Advanced Body Sculpting
I ordered these dvds like a couple years ago and apparently you can't buy them from that website if you're in the US. Hmmm. You can get them thru ebay and other sites if you just Google it. Or I guess you can find clips and stuff thru YouTube.com and Yeoh.com
I asked my friend about his 20 minute routine and he says it should not be done unless you've got a spotter or trainer with you so he asked me not to list it down. He did say for those of you at home who wants something similar, watch/rent/buy Jillian Michael's 30 day shred videos. In it she does different variations of a 20 minute workout that is similar to the routine he has me do. He stresses to please please please, if possible, schedule at least one session with a certified personal trainer before you start any workout routine. You want to lose weight and be fit...not break something.

Im feeling positively chatty lately I guess...
I got off early from work today so I could go to a workout appointment with a buddy of mine (who is also my personal trainer) and he calls me up 5 minutes before we were to meet telling me he was stuck in traffic and to hang out till he's closer to the gym. THEN he calls me up 45 minutes later telling me that he lied to me before...he wasn't in traffic but in fact being a lazy bum at his house...but that he really is in traffic now.
So I read blogs and recorded a video while I waited for him to haul himself to the gym.
P.S. this is me PRE workout. If you think this is scary wait till you see me POST workout. Not only do I look like the dead, but Im pretty sure I smell like it too.
P.P.S Beware the rambling woman...

Don't laugh. This is important to me. Well, not really important. But being indecisive pisses me off. Especially when it's me!
Anyhoo, this is for the girls. And if any of the men want to chime in, then that's fine by me.
Question: If you (I) were wearing a strapless A line dress (empire waist), cream with brown designs on it...would you have a nude eye/red lips combo or brown smokey eyes/nude lips combo?? Anyone?? Anyone??
Also, THANKS to Scope and Cora for emailing me and sending me the posts of their visit last month to my email so I can read them. My lab has blocked blogger off the servers and it sucks ass. Then when I get home Im too tired to do much than take a shower and pass out lately. Blah! I miss reading you guys!! ALL of you! ALLLLLLL OF YOU!!!!! But I have to give special shout outs to JJ, Words, Unbearable Banishment, Dr. Zibbs, Gwen, Fancy...those of you who have emailed me or added me onto Facebook ROCK!!!
Last but not least, LOOK!! it's only been 5 days since my last post this time!! Woohoo! Im getting better...but still no time to read blogs. Pisses me off! Time flies when you're working 50+ hours a week. Gah!
Where was I? Oh yeah,
Last but not least, I joined a fantasy football league. The draft (Automated) is not till 8/23 so I still have time to ditch and join a different league (if one of you guys have room in yours you still need to fill) so let me know! I haven't ranked my players yet so if you wanna send me advice please email me or leave a comment!

(I don't consider my last video as a post)
(It was a rant plain and simple)
Im here. And aparently my disappearance shelf life is right around 12 days before people (Scope and Words specifically) start to wonder where I'd dissapeared to. In fact, they sent me messages about 2 hours apart from each other. FUNNY!
Anyhoo, I'm here. Been busy (what else is new) with work, work, life, work, family, friends, and oh yeah..work! A few people were laid off at "the lab" and so the rest of us left have been picking up the work and the hours that go along with it. We remodelled and updated plumbing at my house, so we just got water turned back on after a week...gross! I've been going to gym again since my trainer got his walking cast off and I've been too tired and achy to do much after I get home. A friend is getting married in a couple weeks, I've got inventory and end of month meetings coming up. Friend stuff, Life stuff, etc etc etc. And although I have a bunch of posts in reserve for just this occasion, it's a pet peeve of mine when people post things but don't read other people's stuff. I didn't want to seem like I wanted everyone to read my crap but I was too good to read or comment other peoples blogs so I didn't post date any of mine.
I do have a YouTube video I have to do for a friend of mine that I have to find time for this week...even now I'm typing this in Spokane, WA (about 4 hours away from Seattle) where I had to drive to last night for a meeting this morning... I don't even have internet right now so I'll have to wait to post it till I get to somewhere more civilized...*sigh*
I can't promise when Ill be back full force since I don't really know. But in the meantime you can all reach me in my email and I'll definitely respond there.
(because I can read email in my lab...and pretend to be working...)
(and I can read email on my phone...and be sneaky about it...)
Miss reading you all!

Conversation with Sid from Verbal Diorhhea (link on my sidebar or just click on her name on the first line).
Sid: Hey! So I was reading this month's Cosmo magazine (the South African version) and guess who's blog got an honourable mention. Congrats chickie. Wish that I had the article with me to place onto my blog. Maybe tomorrow?
~E: Im so confused? What blog? Your blog got honorable mention? Congratulations!!!!!
Sid: No. Your blog was mentioned. Your e-deconstructed blog was mentioned in Cosmo magazine.
~E: Huh? Ok, Im so confused. How the hell was my blog mentioned in a magazine? You're making it up right? Like as a weird way of giving me a bloggy award or something?
Sid: No I'm serious. I'll bring the article in tomorrow morning, scan it and show it to you. Your blog was mentioned. I don't know how they found your blog but them mentioned the post where you showed everyone what you carry around in your handbag
~E: NO SHIT?!?! Wow. Please please please scan the article...I want to see it.
Sid: Will do.
Ok, Sid. If this is a set up for what I anticipate to be a really seriously satisfying joke, I'm still waiting for the punchline! Guess, we will see.
