Monday, Monday, so good to me (& my new bra)!

Monday, May 10, 2010

Here I am at another Monday morning. The weekend flew by. I don't know how it can go so fast. I had a good weekend. I stuck with my plan and went shopping. I got a new bra. I had myself measured. The lady asked me a few question and brought 2 bras in for me to try. I tried on the first one and it is perfect. I am going to use the staff next time I need one. My husband was with me. I had told him that I would pick out five to try and if none of those worked, I would come back one day this week. He looked at me and asked, "How many do you normally try on?" I thought about it and told him 20-ish. I hate bra shopping. My old bra looks like it has been through some sort of war. I have worn it completely out. The reason I was looking for one was all the girls at work were going to chip in and get me one if I didn't. Lets just say gravity was having a greater effect on me that it should. At any rate when I tried the new one on it was fantastic. Even my husband commented on the difference. I definitely suggest asking the sales staff for help. Just the 2-3 questions she asked me sent her toward the style and brand I needed. That is something I had not even considered before. The girls are happy and well supported. The right foundation can make all the difference and not just in construction or education!!

    When I had the grueling physical at the end of March 2010 my nurse told me she noticed a bra line....Duh, because I had been wearing a bra I told her. She then told me I shouldn't have the line and that it wasn't the right size. "I've worn it for years and it's comfortable", I blubbered.. She told me to go into a store and ask a sales lady to help me fine the right bra..........

Question-I am embarrassed to ask someone...is it embarrassing?

Glad you found a new supportive partner for the girls!

Goodbye Weekend...I hardly knew you.

Sunday, May 09, 2010

Funny how quickly the weekend disappears. It seems like it was just getting started yesterday. Oh, it was just getting started yesterday. Well I didn't get everything done I wanted to but I did exercise and stick to my eating plan. I can't seem to get too excited about cleaning out the closets. I have to but I start and then a few minutes later find a reason not to finish. I have done that 3 times now. It is not like me. I am restless right now though. I am not sure why. I know we will be moving in the not too distant future but I don't know where or when. That seems to have me in neutral when it comes to things like cleaning out the garage and the closets. At least it is good motivation for a healthy lifestyle. I am going to donate all of my "fat clothes" because I am not going back down that road. I have always had the tools deep down to stay off that path but they weren't readily available. Now I am more organized, older (maybe wiser) and realizing that I have spent a long time waiting for weight (wait) loss. I don't want to wait any longer. It is my time to go, go, go!

    Good for you for sticking with your exercise and eating plans! The closet clean out will get done and hopefully you have a good consignment shop in your town so you can trade in your clothes!

    My weekends feel like that too! Gone before they start and I get to looking at the piles of things that need to get done and I just don't feel like doing it after working all week! So I feel ya!! It will still be there waiting for you when you get back around to it and it will all get done in time for your move! It always does some how!! : )

Saturday, Glorious Saturday

Saturday, May 08, 2010

Hello Saturday. I waited all week for you. So far I got up after sleeping late and did my lower body blast 10 minutes plus 45 minutes of cardio on my life cycle. I seem to be obsessed with getting points. I think it is a good thing because that is what got me on the bike and kept me there for 45 minutes while I checked emails and did all my points for Spark People. I try not to over think motivation. It doesn't really matter why I am willing to do something I hate (exercise) just that I did...right? I got an email for 35% off my purchase at CWC (Coldwater Creek) today only so I think I will run over there this afternoon. Even if I don't get anything it is nice to see how things fit now. I need some makeup and perfume also so I will be at Dillards also. My kind of happy Saturday. Mindless shopping. I love it. So thank you Saturday for being such a stress-free happy end of the week. Unlike Monday through Friday, you rarely let me down!

Hello Friday! You are lookin' good!!

Friday, May 07, 2010

Friday....you have finally arrived. TGIF just doesn't seem to say it all. I seem to spend the entire week now wishing it were Friday. It used to be only part of the week. I finished day 7 of the Fit, Firm & Fired Up video. I have been sore a couple of the days so maybe it is working. It is a blessing that it is just 10 minutes long. I wouldn't do it if it were much longer. I have been diligent with exercise since I decided to start a program with it incorporated. I was going to do the local heart walk tomorrow but I broke my toe and I am still limping and getting really bad cramps in my calf. I will just do it next time we have a walk. At least I can still do the exercise bike. I would have never imagined a toe could cause this much grief. For those of you who have had a broken toe, you know what I mean. They don't even do anything for a broken toe. You just limp along until it gets better (whenever that is). I wore my size 10 jeans today (for the first time). I still can't believe I can get into a size 10. My buddies at work are all complimentary. I am just not too good at taking a compliment. I am working on it though. They make me feel uncomfortable. I have one friend who always asks, "What do we say?" I just reply, "Thank you." She laugh and says better. I will eventually get it. It just isn't something I am used to. I am used to giving them not getting. Hope the weekend is fabulous for everyone!

The Morning After

Thursday, May 06, 2010

Well I survived my oral surgery. I did all soft or liquid food and even lost a little bit. I was careful with my calories. It would be really easy to go crazy on liquids since most of my favorites are high calorie. I stayed with Yoplait Light and Progressive Light Soup. I even got my exercise in, both yesterday and today. No excuses. I am still a little sore from the Fit, Firm & Fired Up routine. I know I was in bad shape but geez. Who knew I would be this sore from 10 minutes? Well I obviously need the work out. I broke out the spring/summer clothes this morning. I hope winter is done. I had my first pedicure of the season so I have on sandals. I feels good. I tried on my size 10 jeans again and I think I will wear them tomorrow for casual Friday. I have some strappy open toed shoe that should do the trick. It is funny. I usually don't pay much attention to my clothes just my shoes. Well I want to look nice and appropriate but that was as far as it went. This year I seem to be matching my shoes to my outfit as much as the other way around. It is kind of fun actually. This is a much nicer issue than everything being too tight or making me look like a house. I do love the Springtime.
