Today is Yosei's marching band club day, with that extra hour of free time its hard to know exactly what to do. Today though, I had already decided.
It seems like a silly thing to do with the money problems we're having I know, but I figure with the amount I've been eating lately I can save a whole heck of a lot more than ￥1050 if I can just control myself.
After Keia was born I spent a whole year working hard and I lost a lot of weight, around 55 lbs. But once I put Yosei in preschool the rhythm of my days changed completely and for some reason I completely lost control. And even now no matter how hard I try I manage to do well for 1 or 2 days before losing it and giving into that junk food binge (one of which can cost more than these here ear stickers.
These only last for 3-4 days, apparently leaving them on any longer can lead to a rash, so you're supposed to change them out. The gave me a little sheet that has a diagram with all the pressure points on the ear, and I found that I can get a sheet of 100 balls on amazon for ￥2000. So I won't be going back to the spa anytime soon (kind of sad about that, the ten minute ear and head massage was pretty flipping awesome), but if it seems to work, I guess I can work my butt off on some more surveys and buy me a sheet of balls on amazon :)
Oh also found out there's a pressure point at the top of the ear thats supposed to help with irritability. They gave me two spare balls incase the ones they put on come off, but maybe I should stick them up there. I bet Kiyo and the kids would be a lot happier if I did ;)
I'll update on this in a couple of days and let you all know how it goes.
