I have ended up having a wonderful day after the rough start. (See post this morning.) I got my physical. I was feeling pretty nauseous by the time it was over - I didn't get to eat until 10:20. But, I'm so glad to have that over with!
After my appointment, I went to Target and got some major shopping done. Then, off to the mall! (If you remember, my daughter is at camp so it was a rare opportunity to shop by myself.)
Well, I tried on a size smaller clothes - and EVERYTHING I tried on FIT!! It was so nice! And, I thought I looked really nice and could live without losing another pound! But, I still plan on losing more. It was just fun to keep trying on clothes and they looked nice and fit!
Then, I got a spur of the moment hair cut! (I'll try to post a photo tomorrow.) I just went and let the hairstylist do what she wanted. It turned out really cute!
After the mall, I went home and laid on the couch and read awhile. Then, my hubby called and said he was coming home to take me out to dinner to celebrate what happened at work today. It was a "big thing" that's been in the works for months, and it became official today! So, we went out to a fancy place - me with my new clothes and haircut - and had a wonderful dinner. I did really good, except I had a soda. It's my first in 2 months (I think) and it just wasn't worth it. I wish I wouldn't have, ordered it, but I did! (The water didn't have ice in it and wasn't refreshing.)
So, that's how my day turned around! Thanks for the comments earlier on my "rough day." Now I have one more busy day before I pick my daughter up from camp. I can't wait to see her!

I'm having kind of a rough morning. For one thing, I have a physical at 9:15 and can't eat until after that. My tummy is growling and it isn't quite 8 am. Ugh!
On a positive note: I'm getting a physical! I'm 40, and I hate to admit it, but I have never had my cholesterol checked. And, I started working out without getting a physical. So, I'm proud of myself for doing this today!
Another negative: I decided not to workout this morning because it'd make me hungrier. These days, I feel better when I start the day with a workout.
Positive note: I'll work out later today! I have my one hour upper body workout scheduled and might do some Wii as my gym is closed today.
Another negative: I'm still at weight plateau. I hit 8 weeks of my new 'diet'/exercise yesterday and have been stuck between 151-152 (7-8 pounds lost) for 2 weeks now.
Positive note: The scale will start moving soon, right? And, I am definitely losing inches. I was amazed at how much I had to tighten my belt yesterday.
Another negative: I met a new trainer and scheduled a workout for Friday. Last night I decided I really didn't want to do that - I like my current trainer and I want to run Friday morning. So, I cancelled last night. I feel really bad about this - I like to stick to my commitments. And, the reply I got this morning was short and ... well, I just hate doing that to someone and wish I'd just think before I make a commitment and then that I'd stick with my schedule once I've made it.
Positive note: I get to run tomorrow morning!
Ok... shower time so I can make it to the doctor's! Have a healthy day!

(This post is for girls!)
So, I thought my old... um, from about 7 years ago... sports bras were doing the job. I've looked for others, but haven't found anything else I like. Well, today my trainer had me doing jumping jacks and I was looking in the mirror... yikes! I need some new sports bras... badly! (It was kind of embarrassing.)
So, any suggestions? I'm fairly big (DD), but I am 'diminishing' right now. I went to a running store (Fleet Feet) and they didn't have anything big enough. Academy has some more I could try on. Anyway, is there a site or something that could tell me what to look for? Or, what do you look for in support? I don't even know what size I am any more!

I want to thank so many of you, again, for your prayers for my daughter and myself while she is away at her first sleepover camp. One of my prayers was that I'd see a photo of her on the nightly post, and I just found a beautiful one of her with a new friend! I'm crying silly mommy tears, but I'm so happy! And, I'm praising God as I specifically was praying that I would see a photo of her to put my mind at rest.
Praising Him this morning, and thankful that my daughter is having a wonderful time,
