My daughter had some animal crackers for her snack. I had almonds.
The kids both wanted pizza for lunch. I had an egg with a piece of cheese.
It doesn't matter that I'm full. I want carbs! I want to stuff my face with animal crackers and follow that up with a piece of chocolate. Gee, can we see why I was having a hard time maintaining my weight?
I'm not really doing a strict 'paleo' or 'atkins' thing. I'm just limiting the junk, which for me tends to be useless carbs.
I went to the store today and bought a cart FULL of fresh fruit. Watermelon, canteloupe, grapes, pears, cherries...
I figure when I'm craving sweets, I'll have a sweet piece of fruit. Can't hurt, right? I'm certainly getting carbs in my diet, just not the bad kind.
While out shopping I bought myself SIX new bras. That's right, I found some that actually fit AND were on sale, so I stocked up. I'm so tired of the big gap in the cups of my bras where my boobs used to be. I used to be a 38B (very hard to find) and now I'm a 34A. Yeah, they look like training bras, but they fit so I don't care!
I have a family reunion coming up in 6 weeks. There's also a ladies lunch the day before the reunion. Most of these people haven't seen me in about 2 years and have no idea about my weight loss, except from pictures on facebook. It's important to me that I look good for these occasions.
I've been working out like mad and really want to show off my hard work. So...I bought this today.
|I know it needs to be ironed!|
I'm REALLY not sure about horizontal stripes. This is a whole new territory for me.
Please be honest and let me know if this works for the ladies luncheon (with my aunts and cousins).
I still have the receipt and can return if need be.
That's it for today folks. Enjoy your day, and stay cool!
