It was not a "firing on all cylinders" day for me today. But I did manage to squeeze some lemon juice for the lemonade of what could have easily been a wasted day.
Yesterday I sucked it up. (in more ways than one.)
I put my fear aside, and got a flu shot yesterday. Then, last night, I drank too much Sauvignon Blanc, and stayed up way too late with E.
After gimping sorely out of bed at about noon, I fired up the coffee pot and met with fuzzily conceptualizing the grocery list and remembered that I HAD to go to Kohl's today to engage my 15% discount coupon that came with my paycheck yesterday as a "valued business customer." I've been holding off on getting new support for the girls and the cheeks, until this annual sale time came.
* I HATE trying on bras *
Loathe it with incredible anti-passion. It used to involve so much effort of seeking out the best lift and support mechanism of 4 pronged bridge-like support beams of fortitude. I haven't bought new bras since this past spring prior to my weight loss and the girls have been chiding me of late for my lack of support.
After perusing the racks of major sales of Simply Vera Wang, and Daisy Fuentes, Elle, etc, I met with some Pay-Dirt-Cheap Sonoma cords. @ 18.99 a pop, I SCORED 3 pair of awesome pants in black, brown and gray. Cords are my go-to staples in winter, and I know that my old staid size 14-16 will not work for me now, and cord time has officially descended with the turning of the leaves and the new chill in the air. I grabbed 10's and 12's and was So Happy that the 10's fit perfectly.... therefore...
I met with a bit more intuitive feeling of my girth loss, since I never measured myself before joining SP, as I was in denial and really did not want to meet with my numbers.
I perused the Vanity Fair bras that typically are my faves, and I usually try on MORE than I care to mention, but today.. (YES) I had an intuitive hunch of what my new size was, and LO and BEHOLD, the numbers were SMACK ON. First bra I tried on, I hit PAY-DIRT COMFORT and the Girls are Still Rejoicing within their new found support x 2 @ 50% off PLUS my 15% discount.
2 inches of girth and 1 cup size lost made Lynne a happy validated Sparked Fae.
I also addressed the falling-down panty issue much to my happiness and relief.
HUMBLING=PULLING UP PANTIES while walking down the big hall at work. 3 new pairs of Jockey Comfort fit acquired.
4 new tops that were DIRT CHEAP and SWEET and smaller than usual and highly colorful added to my windfall today.
THE ULTIMATE GRAVY of TODAY was that WVU beat CONNECTICUT (BIG EAST CONFERENCE)
This was SWEETER than CHOCOLATE!!!
