Every Day is a New Day

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Today I've had about 400 calories so far, and I'm doing pretty good. Last night was pretty bad with 3 brownies a la mode and a couple of mini Crunch bars that were left in the pantry when I got home from school. I can do really good all day long, and then later in the day, I fall apart and eat everything I can get my hands on. :(

The other day, I went swimsuit shopping with my oldest daughter, who is 130 lbs. and 5'8" and gorgeous. She bought herself a good suit for swimming laps at school, because she is in "swim" right now. The quarters are broken up in a way that the kids take 9 weeks of drivers ed, and 9 weeks of swim. So, she is in swim and needed a decent suit. There is a "lifeguard store" right by our house, in fact it's walking distance. It is actually a distribution center for athletic swimsuits, but they have a store front too. Her suit was only $24!!! Then, I got a surprise on the clearance rack, as I was looking at a tri-suit. Next to it was a swimsuit in MY size. I went there 3 summers ago, and all they had were suits for thin people, so I have written that place off. But this suit was perfect for me. I tried it on, it fit, it supported "my girls", AND it was on clearance for $27! So yeah, I got a new swimsuit! This morning I swam in it for the first time. It was so nice to swim and not have my chest flying out of my suit!!! I still have a lot of work to do, and a lot of brownies to walk away from, but here I am in my new suit this morning:

Well that's about all for now. I have to give a flute lesson, work at the food pantry, and clean someone's house today. And hopefully tonight after dinner, I will have time for homework because my study group got ANOTHER math project from HELL. We are really ready for this semester to be OVER!!!

    What an awesome deal on the suites! I went to that place once as well and never went back. I guess you never know! You sound busy busy busy! Ew on the group project, anything connected to groups is miserable. Always 1-2 people doing all the work and the rest floating along.
