BRIDESMAID DRESSES AND MOTIVATION
Tuesday, December 17, 2013
I met with JAHINTZY at David's Bridal last night to try on a dress for her wedding. After finding out that the one she originally wanted was discontinued, we did find what we think will be a good replacement. I just hope it looks good on the other attendants as well so we can get it ordered.
I really love this dress but I am not happy about the way my arms look.
I am not sure if I have enough time to do Much about it but I intend to try.
I am also still up from this time last year.
Yesterday I was up a whole ten pounds.
Today I was back down 2lbs. This does not surprise me. I knew I was bloated from lack of exercise (5 days) and too much holiday junk food indulgence during my mother's annual cooking decorating /weekend pre-Christmas visit.
After we were done with the dress shopping we had a light meal and later went for a good hard swim at the Y. Sure enough some of the bloating was down today.
Still, I would like to re-shed some of my +weight (8lbs) and tone up my arms a bit before the wedding in early March.
I think a friend's wedding and a pretty dress make excellent motivation.
Now to get through the Holidays!
I am also pleased to report that I am still dating the same man I was this time last year and I have solved (theoretically) the issue of not getting enough exercise when spending time with him.
I bought a used elliptical and am keeping at his place.
Now to discipline myself and start using it when I am there.
