I woke up this morning determined to get that shopping I was supposed to do yesterday done. Turns out they just opened a Ross down the street this weekend, and for once I made some really great finds, despite being in that no man's land between plus size and regular sizes. I found a black one-button blazer with cinching on the 3/4 sleeves that could be dressy or casual, and a dress to wear to court for the final divorce hearing (which was a 14!), and it's one of those dresses that look like a frilly button up tucked into a high-waisted skirt with a black belt a the empire waist transition. On top of that, I bought this dressy maxi dress thing in hopes I could wear it to the cocktail party/Cirque du Soliel show next weekend: It's a synthetic jersey knit material, sleeveless black with a jeweled scoop neck and a fabric band just under the bust. I think it's super cute, but the only problem is that it's floor length, and I'm wondering if that alone makes it a bit too dressy for something that most girls are going to be wearing "cocktail attire" too. I'm really lame with these different attire rules. Well, I've got a week to return it and find something better, I suppose.
According to the scale I'm down to 202.2 pounds, which is a 1.8 pound loss from six days ago. I would have preferred it to be over two pounds, but considering I got zero exercise in for the week, I'm not going to complain. I'm really, really close to Onederland! I would like to be able to be under 200 seven days from now, but it will more likely be 10-14. Either way I'm making progress, so I'm happy.
It's Sunday, which means I have to go back to work tomorrow (boo!). That, and this will be my last week as a temp! I'm both nervous and excited, and hoping I can come out of this transition financially. Thanks to missing three days last week, my upcoming paycheck is going to be pathetic, and I don't think I have enough in savings to cover the deficit. This also means I have to delay this month's accelerated debt repayments and I will therefore be a month behind schedule on paying off my credit cards. I'm super bummed about it, but I have to keep telling myself this is a necessity for the transition, and soon I can hopefully make up for that month shortcoming with the additional wages I will be making. I'm starting to get good at looking on the bright side of things, haha.
We just had a brief rain spell, and there's thunder in the distance. That combined with the drafty fifty-four degrees (Fahrenheit) and the cloudy sky, I'm positively sleepy, and am tempted to don flannel pajamas and crawl into bed with a book for the rest of the day (my goodness, there's less of it than I realized!). The drowsiness is probably also from the fact that, due to my inability to read nutrition labels, I consumed a late 1,030 calorie lunch today. The only good news is that my breakfast was only a hundred calories, and I'm stuffed enough to go without dinner, so hopefully it will all balance out.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! It seems like quite a few of us had great shopping adventures! Here's a pleasant and quick week ahead!
