Spring in Northern Europe...
Friday, April 17, 2009
...isn't like spring in the US. We had a couple of days of sun, but for at least the past three days, it's been coat/hat/gloves weather. But even though the sky is grey, at least the flowers are blossoming, so there's something nice to look at.
I got my new sports bra the other day! It's so much better than the old one. Let me back up - Last week, I went bra shopping and got fitted at Marks and Spencer. She said I was a 36G, so she brought one in, I tried it on, and it didn't fit. She told me they wouldn't have my size, so I should go to Bravissimo, a shop which caters for women with bigger busts. So, I went there, and they fitted me. Turns out I wear a 32-34 H/HH (depending on the brand). My new sports bra is a 32H (though I probably could've done with the HH if that style had gone up to it). And it actually keeps the girls in place. It's great. I'm looking forward to having the money to shop there more, since I desperately need new bras (all of my old ones are 38-40G).
I've been working out like mad for the past couple of weeks. I hope it pays off. I've also been really careful about my calorie intake. I'm still occasionally eating too many carbs and not enough fat and protein, but looking at it weekly, it probably evens out.
I have all of my exams in one week, and 2 weeks from now, I'll be completely done. I'll then be able to focus even more on my health. Well, that and wedding plans, moving house, and finding a job. Either way, as much as I love my course, I'm really looking forward to being done with uni forever (though I might volunteer in the department if I can't find work easily, which is likely, given that I'm an American woman of child-bearing age and therefore not particularly desirable despite being totally qualified). Anyway, we'll see how it works out.
