Last Friday, some friends and I went to a charity event for Big Brothers, Big Sisters called Glitter Ball.” The whole thing was a fantastic homage to the 1980’s and some of the most creative people in the Twin Cities brought out the leg warmers, ratted hair and bright eye shadow. It was like TOTOLLY AWESOME.
I looked through the photos and I’ve got to say, I think I look much cuter now that I did back in the real 1980’s.
Yeah, back then I was about at tall as I was round, and had one of those totally unflattering “mushroom” style haircuts that were in style. I looked like a chucky version of “Tootie from “The Facts of Life” or as lots of people also used to remind me, I was a really good double for “Arnold from Different Strokes.” (Not really what a grade school girl wants to hear, right?)
So the healthy changes in diet and exercise that I have made over the years have finally have started to pay off. If I could go back in time and swap out a few photos, I like totally would.
Seeing these new pix are definitely good motivation for me to get in my 12 miles on the treadmill this week and to keep up with my food journal. I’ve been great at it today, but admittedly it is only Monday.
Can somebody get me a time machine please? I need to go back and give chucky 1980’s me a few healthy pointers.
