Nope, it doesn't quite work that way, as nice as it would be. Instead, we have to forego all of the deliciousness that I personally LOVE... chocolate, potato chips, cookies, chocolate, cheesy quesadillas, did I mention chocolate? Yep, and then after all of that self-deprivation, you also have to fit in hours of running, crunches, lunges, etc., each week. At least that's how it works once you hit 30. ;)
One thing that does instantly transform these legs of mine into fun candy-colored stems, however, are my brightly colored skinny jeans! Even if they don't make me appear any thinner, they do make me feel good about how I look. And THAT is where you get my catchy title. ;)

There's just something about these turquoise skinny jeans that makes me happy.
Speaking of turquoise, yesterday, I did an experiment with my third graders. We were testing how light filters through different materials and the way the color changes. According to one of my bright students, when the blue and green lights blend, we get turquoise! To me, it looked like a light blue, but hey, maybe turquoise is her happy color too, so I'm not faulting her for saying that it looks turquoise. In fact, I was actually quite proud of her for coming up with a more descriptive word that "light blue." =)
I tried various poses today to show of my little arm party...
They look more ridiculous than creative. ;)
Do you have a trick for instantly feeling a little bit thinner? Maybe "thinner" isn't the best word... but you know what I mean. Do you have something you wear or do that instantly makes you feel a little bit more confident? Or something that cheers you up when you put it on?
