Online shopping is making me crazy, and not only because there are so many gorgeous things out there to buy!
I don't have a clear vision of what I would like "my look" to look like. Obviously, comparing my wardrobe to those of others makes no sense as I don't have the same shops, lifestyle or resources as they do, but I often find myself in situations where I do not feel comfortable in the clothes I am wearing in the moment.
I feel like a lot of these happen when I am wearing blue jeans... I don't know what to do about that? Throw away my jeans? Wear more skirts? Get more casual black pants? Jeans are very comfortable, and when one is not too confident in oneself, comfort can make things easier to bear, I think. Would the ultimate solution be to lose some weight? Now it just sounds like I have a terrible body image.
I have to think about this... Its not just about the blue jeans though, its that my wardrobe is scattered and not cohesive at all. I suppose that's ok because no one person has just ONE style every day... Maybe constructing an "inspiration board" isn't such a bad idea?
Anyways, I'll be going through my clothes soon to see if anything really sticks out like a sore thumb. Maybe I'll find some clothes that were too tight 5 lbs ago and are now wearable? Here's hoping!

Someone has left cake in the break room... I don't know what kind of cake it is but the icing looks delcious!
HOWEVER, I will not eat it! It is not worth it: I have enough to eat to last me through the day, then I have to eat a light dinner, and then maybe a protein shake between running and kettlebell bootcamp.
If I don't eat this cake then I will have room for some Faux Cheesecake that is in my fridge right now, made with jell-o, french vanilla protein powder, flax seeds, bran, cream cheese and cottage cheese, YUM! It is nice to have a treat to look forward to eating, that is healthy as well.

So I just bought my first pair of NEW ROCK BOOTS!! I have been dreaming about them for so long but the price was discouraging me, so finally I made them the reward for reaching my second weight loss goal of 139 lbs.
Now, as I'm sitting here waiting for them to arrive (10 minutes after purchasing them LOL) I am getting excited/nervous thinking about all the outfits I can put together around them. Miniskirts, dresses, etc. etc. I plan on not only wearing the New Rocks as much as possible, but looking HOT in them as well!
Hope my weigh in/measurement tomorrow is encouraging, this week has been a bit tough to stay on track! 5km run tomorrow, then part II of KETTLEBELL BOOTCAMP!

Last night was a bit of a (planned) blowout with the man because even though we are both trying to lose weight we don't want to completely cut out things like wine or (home-made) pizza from our diets, so that's what we chose to do last night! And we ran 13 kms so I think we deserved it??
Today was my grandma's 80th birthday so I went over to my mom's house to celebrate. One guest brought side dishes from WholeFoods and they were YUM! She also brought a flourless chocolate cake which I fell in love with but did NOT take any leftovers home with me.
Anyways, I am really hoping to be able to buy my New Rock boots tomorrow (139 lbs goal) and I might be there because my end of day weight after the party was only 140.8! I like to weigh myself in the morning and that weight is usually 2-3 lbs less than after dinner the previous day.
We shall see! Running 6 km hills tomorrow then kettlebell bootcamp starts on Tuesday!!!
