Shopping...with pics!

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

ok, business first...I did get up at 5:30 and do my C25K workout. Today was week 5, day 2 so I had a 5 min warm-up walk, 8 minute run, 5 min walk, 8 min run and 5 min cool-down. It went awesome!! My neighbor came with me and it felt really good. I can't wait to do day 3-20 minutes straight running! With today's workout done, I am halfway through the C25K program.

I ate really well today and got in my 80 oz of water. I also realized that if I meet my goal of 131 in the next week and a half, that I will have a healthy BMI! I can't believe that I am within 5 pounds of that benchmark. So excited!

Anyway, on to the fun stuff. Before Easter, I had been shopping for a few things and had seen some really cute dresses but didn't take the time to try any of them on. Today I decided to head to the mall and see what they had left. I ended up with 3 dresses, 2 in a size 8 and one in a size 6!!!! I almost left the 6 there, but my mom convinced me that I needed it. Check out some of the stuff I tried on and the ones I brought home...

I love this one, but the size 8 was just a bit too big and I couldn't justify buying it...

Another size 8 that was too big. I tried on the 6 in this dress and it fit nice, but the sweater was way too tight on my arms. Luckily, it wasn't my favorite.

My "must have"-the dress that had originally caught my eye, size 8.

The second one my mom convinced my to buy, size 8. It was only $20.

Here it is, the size 6! So cute!

Thanks for checking them out, it was fun trying them on (and the 10 others that I didn't take pics of too!)

Goals for tomorrow:
72+oz water
Minimum 30 min cardio + abs +arms (ST)-maybe 30 day shred and some kickboxing.
In bed by 10:30
