photos of the day: saturday november 10th:
at 8:15 a.m. this morning, it was time to kick off GUM CHEWING DAY! oh, the anticipation!!
[if jamie lee curtis can put her make-up free face out into the public for all the world to see, so can i!].
the first chew at the official time of 8:23 a.m. EST:
sweaty cardio + gum equals not a good idea, but there is no reason why you can’t strengthen, stretch and foam roll, all the while enjoying a resounding chomp, snap and bubble-blowing session!
then, we chewed gum…
~ while applying nail polish!
~ while talking to mom on the phone!
~ while knitting (fake project – christmas is upcoming, remember?):
since i have a feeling snooki would approve highly of this gum chewing day, i dressed in her honour today: i applied an extra layer of
orange bronzer, wore my bedazzling hat, and my sparkly hoop earrings:
we chewed gum while walking to work!
and, during a quiet moment at the store, we posed, mid-chew…
i took a gum free break for a while…my jaw was feeling noticeably stiff by this time. i also felt like my jaw had become mis-aligned, angling to the right.
after work, i met up with juanita at s’bux. i had planned on chomping ‘n’ talking but took another break, instead. just before we parted ways, i popped in my next piece:
then, i returned home where the gum pacs and i checked in with a few blogs…
…and started composing this post:
at this time (~6:40 pm EST), i have SEVEN sticks of gum to go. my jaw is tired, and i have had sufficient of these peppermint and bubble gum flavours, but i am confident i can finish these last pieces off!
[sidenote: total gum chewing time today will equal 7 hours, total. i chew each piece for 15 minutes so that's 28 x 15 = 7 hours].
final thoughts: today was fun and funny, both planning these photo opps and actually chewing my gum. gum sure is tasty. but, that is IT for gum chewing, i am going back to being gum-free. it’d be super easy for me to slide back into daily gum chomping, and gum is not a necessity for life enjoyment, it’s simply a habit. now, i will look ahead with glee to DIET COKE DAY on december 9th!!
are you a gum chewer?? i have never chewed through 28 pieces of gum in one day. mark today as a new experience!
