Optimistic Shopping Day

Sunday, April 28, 2013

I went to the mall today. I need a new jacket . . . didn't get it.

What I did get:
- A latte (its ok, I forgot to bring my granola bar, and Starbucks vanilla lattes with nonfat milk are somewhat harmless if I only have them once in a while)
- 2 shirts
- New black flats (ok, that was at Kohls with my mom, not at the mall),
and . . .
WORKOUT PANTS! I desperately needed a pair of workout pants (I've been using sleeping capris), and these were only $18 (and I fit into a size medium). Score!! I also saw a sports bra that I like which probably would have been good, but they didn't have my size :(

That's not the optimistic part of the day, though.
The organization I work for is having our annual dinner in June. It's at a relatively nice place, so I wear a nice dress. Problem is, all of my fancy dresses are from before I gained this 20 pounds. I have one dress that I can still get away with, but I wore it to last year's dinner. So I need a new dress. I looked at dresses today, but decided that I didn't want to buy - I'm going to wait and buy it closer to the dinner, because I'm hoping to be a size down by then (and I don't want to buy a dress that's too big on me). I'm very proud of myself for making that decision and working towards losing the weight.

In other news, I seem to have eaten pretty well today, other than the fact that I'm about 250 calories short of my goal range. Score? That gives me the option of a post-dinner snack (which I so often want). The challenge is to pick the right snack. (I'm thinking celery and PB, but not sure yet . . . may just go straight up fruit. we shall see).

Anyway, I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend.

Looking forward to a good week (I have tickets to tomorrow night's Yankees game, so I'm super excited!!)
