Not where I want to be but that will have to do!!
On Wednesday's I have to work all day. Meaning I work until 6. So I got up early because I wanted to get on the treadmill this morning and if I felt like getting in a few extra miles tonight I could. Getting out of bed I thought my face felt dry and kinda tight. I made the bed before heading into the bathroom. Well, I turned the light on I was horrified by how my face looked!!! I totally freaked out calling for one of my daughters to come in my room. My face was SO SO SWOLLEN!! It looked so bad that I will not even post a picture, and I took several. Immediately I went over what I may have eaten or if I used anything different on my face. All my food has been the same but I did use a new tinted moisturizer. Could that have really caused the swelling that I had?? There was no way I could go to work. I called my neighbor and thankfully she had some Benadryl. I called my office hoping that maybe I could make it in around 1pm today, but by 12 I knew there was no way!! The Benadryl made me so sleepy and loopy. I slept for a little bit and the swelling went down but even tonight as I post this (9:50pm) my face is puffy and red. If anyone reading this has experienced anything like this from a lotion, PLEASE PLEASE let me know.
I was then super careful for what I ate today.
At dinner I did have another taco and a few more onions rings.
My oldest daughter is still on maturity leave so she came on over to check on me. I felt totally fine just for my face. We decided to go to Ulta and returned the lotion and purchase what I usually use. The woman at the counter asked why I was returning and I lifted my sunglasses and showed her my face!!!!
It was so pretty outside today that we decided to take Tyler to the park for a walk. He loved it!! The park was nice and quiet compared to a Saturday morning.
Sorry, but I was not going to turn around for the photo!!!
How cute is he???? We walked 2.5 miles then after dinner tonight I did 2 more miles on the treadmill. It was nice to spend the afternoon with my daughter and grandson but not because of a swollen face!!
Time for bed. I hope to wake up looking my normal self, but I have to admit I am nervous!!!!
