Experiment Disney Princess Hair: Princesses I Won’t Show

Many of the princesses have multiple hair styles and I will do my best to show you as many as I can master. There are, however, some I will not be wasting my time with, or at least I won’t waste my time taking pictures of these princesses. They are, in no particular order

Ariel

Oh my gosh her hair is down and supposedly wet, but my hair never acts like that when it’s wet.

Mulan

Oh look, her hair is down too, we just stuck a flower behind her ear. It’s winter right now, so I’d have to wait about six months to do this style. Sorry, I don’t have the patience or the desire to do this look.

Rapunzel

Oh look, it’s down again. I wish I could do my hair like Rapunzel but she’s been growing her hair for sixteen years without cutting it. I’ve had a haircut within the last year, so I’m way behind.

Pocahontas

One more time, a Disney princess whose hair is down and flowing in the wind. Want to know how to get this look? Straighten your hair and turn on a fan and fog machine.

I actually did try to do this look. I couldn’t get the headband to stay on my head that far back. It would just slide off or bunch my hair so that it looked funny. If anyone has a suggestion that would work, please let me know.

Sorry about being so snarky in this post. I have a bone chip that’s working its way out of the back of my mouth right now, and it really hurts.

Supersize Me: Day 6

BREAKFAST

I had to cheat again today. I was supposed to have a bagel with cream cheese again but I still don’t have cream cheese. So I substituted it with jelly again. I also had a glass of milk to help wash the whole thing down, which was on the menu.

LUNCH

I had another delicious roast beef sandwich, including cheese and steak sauce. It was like heaven. Oh and an accompanying handful of pretzels. It was an amazing lunch.

DINNER

Finally, a dinner that was remotely dinner like. I had nachos! Of course, this was the one night I was working and only had a fifteen minute break to eat. I couldn’t finish them all but my tummy was still happy.

11:40

This wasn’t even cheating; I straight up broke the rules and I don’t feel one iota of guilt. You see, tomorrow I am getting my wisdom teeth out at 8:20am. This will be my last solid food for a week. I was not about to eat a piece of fruit for my last supper. I had a glazed doughnut instead.

 

CONCLUSION

Well, this experiment wasn’t as exciting or extreme as I thought it would be. My friend started a medication just before she did her food diary. This medication made her not as hungry, so I think I actually consumed more calories than she did before the swap. That being said I still learned from this experience.

I was reminded of the importance of carbs. I was heavier in high school because pasta was my go to food but after college I stopped eating a lot of pasta and so I was only eating bread on my sandwiches and maybe a piece of bread at dinner.

I also learned that fruit is sweet. I was eating a lot of sugar to fill me up, instead of real food before this diet swap. Instead of dessert, I can eat fruit, which is what I did when I studied abroad in Spain. By replacing cookies and candy with fruit, my body will be less likely to crash from the sugar high and will be better balanced.

Well, that’s all folks. If someone with a more extreme diet would like to swap with me, let me know. I’d love to suffer what the other side eats.

Supersize Me: Day 5

BREAKFAST

Today’s breakfast was juice and cereal. I don’t usually drink juice for breakfast and when I do drink juice I water it down. Watering down your juice is a really healthy choice because you’re not consuming as much sugar. However, my friend does not water down her juice and so I choked down really thick orange juice.

LUNCH

Finally, I get a lunch that’s truly a lunch. It was just a sandwich and an apple but that’s so much better than, say, a small bowl of fruit. That being said, I didn’t get an afternoon snack like she has a lot of the time.

Anyway, my sandwich was delicious. I took a piece of the roast from my family’s Christmas dinner, melted some cheese on top and poured a bit of steak sauce on top of it all.

DINNER

This is not a dinner! I am eating a granola bar, a cheese stick and a pear. That’s merely three snacks put together. This isn’t going to stick for very long.

11PM

That explains why I’m eating an entire can of ravioli for a midnight snack. I strongly dislike canned ravioli, really ravioli in general, but today it tasted wonderful. I ate most of the bowl easily and only struggled with the last few bites.

HAPPY NEW YEAR

(yes, I cheated and had a glass of sparkling apple cider)
