We are supposed to be closing on our new house in 9 DAYS!!!! I'm so excited and nervous all at the same time. It's such a huge step in my family's life. There's still so much packing to do!! I'm hoping to keep up with C25K even though things are going to start getting a littler crazier since its crunch time for everything. I had went to the grocery last week and tried to stock up with as much as I could so I can try and eat out as little as possible. Just have to try some new recipes with whatever ingredients we got lol

I start Week 4 of C25K this week. Last time I did Week 4 I had to do it twice because I was so out of breath when I ran so we will see how this time around goes. I looked up some ST exercises on Pinterest to add to my routines so I'm hoping to see some results with that. I've been packing my lunch for work very regularly. I didn't pack last night because all I had were Easter dinner leftovers and I had ate the same thing 3 days in a row lol

So, I went shopping the other day and needed a black dress. I usually wear a large or an x-large in shirts/dresses. I found this dress I really liked and tried on the large and the side zipper wouldn't zip up so I thought, "Oh, no big deal I know if I get the x-large it will be fine." Well I was WRONG!! That size wouldn't zip up either. Then I thought maybe it was because it was on the side so I couldn't get a real good grip on the zipper so I called my husband into the dressing room to zip me up and NOPE!! He couldn't get the zipper up either. I was so bummed out but then I thought, "Wait a minute!! I'm going to buy this dress and it's going to zip because I will lose this weight!!" I'm trying to think of what would be a realistic time frame to give myself to fit into the dress? I would like to wear it this summer but it could be worn in the fall too. Anyone have any thoughts on a good realistic goal for that?

It looks like it fits with a cardigan but I want it to actually fit ;)

Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend emoticon

Have a great week!! Reach those goals!!!!

    Awesome news on the house! Congrats!! I wonder if my husband and I will ever own a home :( As for the dress, I have a similar issue as you know, with some jeans. My fitness group on Facebook (ask me if you want to join, it's a bunch of awesome spark ladies!) suggested I try the jeans on each week as motivation/reminder and to help me see how I'm coming along. That is how you set that goal, not by weight or even time really. Just keep trying it on :)

    Yay! Congrats! That dress must run small because you do not look like you wear an XL! You will lose the weight and it will fit perfectly, just wait! I'm sure once you get settled into the house, it will be easier to get back on track.

    Cute dress, but I'd rather meet a goal and then shop. I have lots of "I'll get into this, eventually", set aside.
