Hi hi! I am waiting for the windshield guy. Not happy with “we’ll be by between 9 and 1” Really? Not that I don’t have PLENTY to do at home (: Of course I want to write for a few minutes and then I’ll get busy! Today started out wonderfully with my favorite 7 mile trail run. Our numbers were few today because some of my friends need to rest up for the marathon. So, here I am with one of my besties. We glory in the fact that we live right below this beautiful place that so many enjoy.
I have a fashion shot to share too. But first a quick success story of my own. On my trip last month I bought a new Lululemon skirt. Here’s a picture in boring black. Mine is a cute multi striped blue. Anyway, I don’t have a picture yet. I’ll get one next week. So, I bought my usual size without trying it on. I got home and attempted to put it on. Whoa…this style is a very different cut and much tighter than the other Lulu skirts I’ve worn. I could barely get it over my hips and then it looked awful. Too tight everywhere and too short. I thought I’d have to give it to my tiny petite friend. However, a week and a half into my 8 week challenge I tried it on for Zumba AND it actually fit, so much better that I even wore it! Amazing I know!
I think what’s helping me the most is the increase in fruits and vegetables. I also don’t do any white flour or white sugar. It’s not as hard or as bad as it sounds. I make healthy treats that satisfy my sweet tooth. I still stop for a KEVA juice and a big slice of whole wheat bread now and again. Diet is not a bad word. I also close up shop at 8 or 8:30. No more eating after that hour. I was extremely tempted by a pan of lemon bars I made this week. Oh YUM!!! I didn’t snitch at all and I told myself they will always be there and I’ll eat them later. That reminds me, I actually froze a few of them. I’ll be pleasantly surprised one day when I find them (:
Well, enough chit chat. Keep pluggin’ along. I need to work shoulders and then I’m heading outside to work in the yard. I need SUN! Here’s my fashion shot of the day. This top is the most comfy and cutest thing ever. My husband picked it up at the Sundance Outlet. I love a great pair of white shorts too! I should have taken this outside with better lighting.
