A victory day

Sunday, May 30, 2010

I am so thrilled at life today!
I woke up around 10am, then said "Ok, I'm going to get as much done as I can in 2 hours with cleaning and then I'll stop." In 2 hours I managed to thoroughly clean all 3 bathrooms, put away the last box in the bedroom and clean that room, reorganize my closet, vacuum the upstairs level (dining room, living room, 3 bedrooms, hallway), run 3 loads of laundry, clean the kitchen and unpack 5 boxes downstairs. Hurray for getting things done!
Then Scott called and told me he has tomorrow of for Memorial Day, a first in a long long time. So I think we are going to turn tomorrow into a date day as well as get some yardwork done before the week starts.
My second victory was clothes shopping! My mom runs her own massage business and had a great weekend so she treated me to some new clothes. I went with the usual amount of trepidation and hatred towards the dreaded fitting room mirrors. I grabbed up a bunch of cute clothes and prepared myself for battle.
As usual, none of the pants fit. Not as usual...they were all too big! I have officially dropped about 1 1/2 sizes. I was wearing 13s. 12/13 is now thoroughly too big, 10/11 is slightly too big, but 8/9 are slightly too small. I got a new pair of work pants as well as a super comfy pair of summer slacks. I also tried on a pair of shorts just to humor my husband. I have always hated my legs, thus never ever EVER do I wear shorts. I put on a pair...and they looked ok...actually my butt looked really cute in them...ok I'll take them home too. I also got a new dress as well as about 5 shirts...all smalls! I even bought 2 that were petite smalls which made me feel so fantastic.
Hurrah for positive progess!

    I don't know if you know about this, but Nordstrom has 2x a year (?) HUGE sales and they have a free personal shopping service. Something to keep in mind to treat yourself with once you hit your goal weight. And when I say sale, I mean SALE (got a Tommy Bahama polo shirt for $29, etc)
