Workout Done, Cupcake Declined


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.

Anyways...

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.

You had good willpower at the coffee shop. The coffee shop on my way home from work sells crepes I dare not set foot in there right now.

Way to go, sunshine! I'm working on my "game plan." Several things in mind with a start date of 1.1.12. Imagine that?!

1st off...you look so stinking cute! 2nd off...how the heck were you able to even do 90% the 100? i think I would die or collapse or hyperventilate...SO PROPS to you my friend! Maybe I will hang a copy of the 100 on my mirror to convince myself to try it. :) Keep up the good work and have fun this weekend. I will be praying for you to have self control and as Patsy Clairmont says "a pocket full of NO's" also pray for me as Jon and I are gonna sneak away for the weekend and I know Satan will use all he can to bring me back down!

Awesome job on the workout! That sounds like a killer. Also...way to face the cupcake and say no...what a strong day you had! Oh...and your smile is absolutely killer!

Kyle Gershman said...

Did I really use "killer" twice in two different contexts in the same comment? Really? My deepest apologies.
