I came home and started cleaning up my bedroom, putting away neglected clothes, and eventually moved on to my closet. It is amazing the amount of clothes that you have that you forget you own, once they get shoved into the back. I took everything out and bagged up about half of them. I have been on a mission to downsize and my clothing is the first stuff to go. I got rid of the interview suits that never got me a single job. I threw out the shirts that I am just sick of looking at. I kept every last pair of blue jeans-even the ones I can't comfortably fit in- because they are expensive and I want to wear them all again, and probably could in a month or two.
In the back of the closet, I found it. A navy and black dress I wore to my son's pre-k and my husband's graduation-on the same night! It is timeless and I could still wear it if it wasn't 6 sizes too small. I marveled at how tiny my waist was before 3 more children, a world full of stress, and fibromyalgia took a toll on my figure.
Why did I allow that to happen to me? Why did I allow myself to get fat?
I thought of getting rid of my dress. It has hang in my closet as motivation for nearly 20 years.
However, I decided to keep it. Just looking at that dress made me want to get healthy. It made me want to go run a mile.
It's not going back in the closet. It is going on my wall. I plan to move it occasionally so I don't get used to seeing it.
That dress is going to motivate me to finally do this.

Well, my two meals yesterday were both eaten out, so I am sure the results of that are not good. I haven't weighed yet, but will shortly. :) I skipped church this morning to workout, get the Halloween decorations down and get the Christmas ones up. I am going for a bike ride in a few minutes. Then to get laundry done and get these Halloween decorations down.
Went shopping last night and struggled to find a hoodie/ jacket that I can wear to workout in when it is cold. I tried on an underarmour one that was waterproof. It didn't give at all, and I didn't like that feeling, so I tried on the Men's size and had the same effect. I ended up buying a men's livestrong hoodie. It was black and had pink writing across the chest...so it looks like a womens. I just wish I could wear the skinnny, fitted shirts that normal size women get to wear. I wanna dress like a girl dang it!! Lol!!
Goals for today
