Active Days Off

Friday, July 05, 2013

I am so enjoying my four day weekend! Yesterday, I spent time with family. We had them over, made a relatively healthy Independence Day meal. We had ice cream cones but I also did a cardio class in the morning, took a walk with my husband and went hiking with my family. So a little bourbon chocolate chip ice cream fit into my day with relative ease.

Today, we went to a water park! It has been years since I've gone on water slides but it was a blast. Lots of walking around. We brought our own food so no temptations inside the park. Then we did a little shopping at the outlet mall. I had a few NSV's there. I got my first size S top! It's just a t-shirt but still. My boobs have shrunk so much ( a really good thing!). I love trying on smaller clothes, it makes me feel great. I also got a BCBG dress so gorgeous that I will definitely be posting pictures of it here soon. One of my friends is getting married in September, I hope it still fits by then! I don't think I'll lose more than another 10 pounds by labor day (my loss has slowed down). As of today I've lost 69.4 lbs! I really want to hit 70 pounds down this week. And when I do I hope to do a big post with lots of pictures, including a picture of me in this hot new dress!

I hope everyone is enjoying their holidays as much as I am!!
