The weather was so awesome this weekend. In fact I'm sitting here sweating as my apartment is like a sauna. Saturday my partner and I did our shopping then went out for dinner. I was really proud of myself because even though I had pizza and desert, I stayed under my calories for the day. We went to Boston Pizza and shared a Steak & Portobello Pizza. All I had to drink was water with lemon slices. I was tempted to have a icy cocktail, but I knew I was going to have a decadent desert so I stuck with the water. For desert we shared a S'more Pizza...OMG...have any of you had this? It is crazy high in calories and fat, but soooooo worth it.
Sunday took a drive out to my in-laws town to have coffee with them. It was a nice drive and we took the scenic route home. We stopped a popular little burger joint along the way to get some onion rings to share, but it was so crowed that we left without them! There was a time that I would have made my partner stand in line for an hour for onion rings...lol...ok, maybe not an hour, but you get the idea. We drove with the windows open and it was so nice. It was mostly cloudy today, and very windy, but still so warm. The humidity is crazy.
I know that we will probably get snow again...I do live in Manitoba and the weather is very unpredictable here....but for now, I am enjoying the spring weather.
So, if you are still with me I'll get on to what most of you are probably really interested in...the NSVs! On Saturday, because it was so warm, I was looking for something to wear. All the capris I wore last year were dirty because I wear them around the house and Sunday is laundry day. I rummaged through my clothes and found a pair of capris that I haven't been able to wear in almost 5 yrs. I tried them on a few months ago and could get them on, but they were too tight to wear. They aren't a stretchy fabric and I am NOT going to risk splitting my pants in public. Anyway, I tried them on and.....THEY FIT!! Comfortably. So, I dug out a shirt I haven't worn in a few years and voila...a new outfit!
Sunday, again warm, and feeling more confident...I tried on a long denim skirt that I used to love. Again, it has been about 5 yrs since I was able to wear it....and it fit! I wore it with a top that is made of that slinky fabric that is stretchy, but clings to every bump. I love that top and missed wearing it. I hope I didn't look too out of date...lol.
I have read so many blogs on here from other members who were able to fit into their old clothes and I felt like it was never going to happen for me...even though my clothes are getting baggier...it just felt so far off. I still have a super long way to go, but I am going to savour every victory...big or small!
Oh...and I have exercised 7 days in a row!!! I'm back!
Have a Sparktacular day Sparkly Peeps!
