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!!!
