Vacation, bridesmaid dresses and chocolate
Monday, July 03, 2017
Last week, I was on vacation and it was wonderful.
I ate pretty healthy, though I didn't keep up with tracking, I was okay with that. I made healthier choices in all that I did, and that was good for me. There will be times that I can't track, and I still need to just be aware.
Yesterday, however, I ate sugar. I haven't had it since before April. I had too much, and felt sick. I'm going to remember that feeling to avoid it in the future. Yes, moderation isn't bad, so smaller servings and I probably would have been fine!
So huge NSV (eating right on vacation) and a fall back (chocolate binge) but I recovered and think I know my reasons. (Close to goal, lots of other thing, stress from life, lack of sleep)
Now, onto the bridesmaid dresses. We went shopping for them about a month ago, and I ordered mine about 2-3 weeks ago. (I posted about it). I was debating strongly about ordering a smaller size, because the size I wear that I tried on was a little large up top. And I didn't want to have to take it all in.
Well, I ordered the smaller size. I figured that by the time of the wedding, it would definitely fit. The wedding isn't until October.
The dress came in when I left for vacation. I picked it up yesterday and tried it on.
It fits almost perfectly! In fact, if anything, it might be a little big in part of the chest area. So the good news is that I could lose exactly 0 pounds and not need the dress altered. I'm definitely relieved that it not only fits as is, but then by working out and continued healthy eating I can probably lose weight, and have it taken in. That being said, I will likely call the seamstress in early September, so I guess we will see how much I lose in 2 months. I know it won't be a huge amount, and the way that the dress is made, I likely won't need much done to it.
So I'm doing really well, actually. I ran two miles a day on vacation (without stopping, which I didn't think I could do) and was really happy with life and progress!
Here comes life!
