My shopping trip yesterday was very successful. I found 3 pair of pants (size 16!) and 3 new tops and a pair of shoes that I have had my eye on all winter were now in clearance. And I don't have to hem any of the pants, they are the perfect length to wear with my Dansko shoes at school instead of flats - which I prefer so that I am taller than the students that I work with. It was a really incredible feeling to pull up the zipper in those 16's let me say. I have gone from super tight size 24's last July to a 16 currently, and a size 2X in tops to a plain L. My goal is a medium because there is so much more variety in mediums than large or small. Got to be practical. Though if I get to a size small I won't complain (LOL).
Back to school in a couple more days. This has been a very restful spring break. Didn't get everything done that I had wanted to accomplish but enough that I feel content. Visited with some old friends, got some good walks in, split my cookbook binder into a more manageable size, slept in almost every day (boy did I need that). Didn't finish cleaning the garage yet, there is still 1 day left so I might tackle that in the morning tomorrow just so I can mark it off my list. But I feel rested and rejuvenated and I think that is what the break is really about. Back to school on Monday and only 9 more weeks until summer break!
