F -21 days and counting!
Thursday, May 31, 2012
"F" you ask? Yes, F. For fitting. Wedding dress fitting to be more specific!
The dress is actually a little big so there are no major worries in terms of letting it out---but I want to be a little smaller before meeting with the seamstress who is going to take it in! I ordered some spanx to wear---but will send it back. Waaaaaaaaay to tight to be comfortable all day. My goal is for some gentle smoothing. NOT industrial strength can-barely-squeeze-into it smoothing. I want to be able to breath never mind eat and drink! I was skeptical...but I ordered the smoother in my size (according to their charts).....the resulting object that came in the mail is way smaller than anticipated and in no way comfortable. So...back it goes.
Yesterday was a successful day. YAY me! I did jog/walk intervals for a total of 3.3 miles with an average pace of 4pmh. Not bad. It was crazy hot and humid outside which limited me a bit--I just got too overheated to do more. Slower than my 5K race time but also 20 degrees hotter. Not too bad considering I've completely slacked off the running in the last 4 weeks.
I also hit my target of >10k steps and >60 min activity. Also, I didn't go over my allotted calories. I even heard from a friend I've been worried about---turns out that worry was pretty appropriate but she seems to be doing ok now which is awesome news! Life can be a funny thing with unexpected twists and turns.
Today's goals are pretty much the same as yesterday. Eat well and get some exercise. Make the bugg happy! (It beeps at me once I've completed each goal).
Back to consistency for a sec....the F - 21 is a useful visual reminder for me. 21 more days in this first round of goal setting. I can do this!
