I'm getting things together for a weekend wedding in the city! Look out Big D--here I come! As soon as I get my "matronly" (word my seamstress used :) dress hemmed up. I had to get it because it only cost me $4. But that's another story...
It's kind of hard to tell in this picture but this is a "slimming" dress. Much like the swimsuits with built-in support, this dress has some spanx built right in to it. Pretty handy! But it was a tad too long. Hence the matronly descriptor. The length paired with the criss-crossed ruching made the dress look a bit like...well, one of those slimming swimsuits (the ugly kind) only with a really long skirt on it. Matronly. Yes. Yay for alterations! And showing knees;) Hopefully with the right jewelry and shoes I can pull it off.
So I DID work out today! I did 90% of the 100 Workout.
It was a good way to come back from a long...off-season ;). Tomorrow I will add the final 10 min of jogging.
Here's the photo, although there's no sweat so I guess you'll just have to take my word for it.
I was really trying to focus on being present in the moment today. This morning was tricky. I started off my day with a bowl of cereal and then a pig in a blanket from the donut shop. Whoops. I seriously had consumed it before I even realized. That's where I'm at. Then I headed to town and was drawn to a new coffee shop called Coffee and Cream. (sucker for a great name) I was excited to try "the best cup of coffee in town" but when I got in there I discovered that it was also a bakery. :-/ I quickly spotted what appeared to be the "best cupcakes in town" as well. I almost bought one. Almost. But I thought of declining as a small step in the right direction. I added some Equal and skim milk to my best cup of coffee in town and walked out the door.
