I am fasting this week.  Its kind of an unusual fast.

I am fasting from squeezing my pores.  Months ago I posted my horrible habit:  I like to pop pimples.  But I don’t just squeeze zits, it makes me feel good to get stuff out of my pores.  So any bump I see on my face (and I frequently analyze) is seen as a potential something that can be squeezed.

But this practice is very hard on my skin and I got to thinking, I am getting older and my skin is not going to keep rejuvinating itself forever.

So I decided to fast.  For one week.  I am not squeezing pores.

One week.

    every night i used to get like an inch away from the mirror & start analyzing too and start popping/squeezing pores….then, i realized that my skin was starting to look blemishy. i thought, well, this is defeating the purpose…i was trying to make my skin look better and it was starting to look worse. so, i stopped (for the most part)…still, if there’s something really obvious i’ll still get it out. but no more late night analysis’.

    I know this is partly my fault! I remember sitting on the bathroom counter with our feet in the sink…talking and squeezing! Love you!!
    P.S. At Catalyst in GA!

    I need to think about that–because I AM old and my skin will only get worse. It’s bad habit and hard to break.
