The Dress, Comparison Pics, and my Trip (edited with last jan pic)
Wednesday, January 30, 2013
The weekend proved to be successful. I did indulge but not overly so.. Although the scale reflects that I now weight 188 instead of 185.something. I'm sure some of it is water weight, etc and am not letting it get to me. I'm back to working hard to lose my weight.. AND I did not stray from that journey over the weekend. On top of that.. I've done lunges, sit ups, arm curls, planks, and a 12 minute seated core exercise video. BOOM!
4 generations picture.. I hate how this picture cuts the back of me off though because I feel like it makes me look bigger. I do however, love the comments I got from all my family up there about my weight loss.
FOR A LITTLE COMPARISON.. HERE'S WHERE I WAS LAST JANUARY FOR OUR MINNESOTA TRIP.
IN MAY 2012.
On Saturday we headed up to Minnesota and once we got there we decided to take the extra distance and go to Mall of America. Still not sure if that was a good idea.. because there was a cheerleading competition it was nearly impossible to walk around the way we wanted to. On the upside, my tracker at least hit one mile in the mall, my kids got to meet the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (some of my son's favorite cartoon characters), and I found myself a dress for our anniversary.
Here's a picture of Jeremy, Exandria, and Levi with the turtles. Love it!
We paid a total of $20.99 for it. I expected to spend around $80. I am really happy with the dress and looking forward to wearing it. The only time I've ever worn a dress since I've been with my husband was for our wedding.. so this year's anniversary will be kind of special. Jeremy is taking February 15th off (our anniversary is actually the 14th) so he'll have the 15th and 16th to spend with me. The first night will be spent with our kids at a hotel (since we are unable to find someone that can watch them that night. I am kind of looking forward for quality family time away from home though) and the second night will be just me and him. I'm literally counting down the days to that weekend. 16 days left to be exact. P.S. I plan to post a picture of me with my dress on for our anniversary.. so there won't be any sneak peaks for SP!
