After I posted about my horrible dress experience yesterday I sat on the computer for five hours last night searching for a dress. All I want is a black dress people! I didn’t think it would be that much of a challenge. I finally had to make myself cut the computer off and go to bed because I knew I would be up all night. I was a girl on a mission!!
I woke up this morning feeling a little better so I did something I had been avoiding doing for a few weeks now. I weighed myself. I was prepared for the worst. I was prepared to see the scale back up to what I was in the beginning. I stepped on the scale, closed my eyes, crossed my fingers, and prayed. When I looked I was in shock. I was down from the last time I had weighed myself. I have been slacking on the tracking and exercising, so to see that I was down made me sigh in relief. Maybe I am learning something on this journey.
With that extra kick in the rear I needed I knew today was going to be a good day. I wasn’t sure what I was going to have for brekafast but after looking at my fruit bowl I knew it was going to include bananas.
I knew I had a shake mix in the cabinet, so I pulled it out so I could make a smoothie. 2 scoops of Young Living Balance Complete, 8 oz water, 1 banana= a filling, but liquid breakfast.
So let me just tell you I’m an impulse buyer. Note picture above. If someone tells me I can lose/maintain weight using something I’m sold. I’m trying to slowly wein myself away from being that way, but it’s a challenge. So I bought this mix because I think it came with a program or something… Instead of wasting it, I use it on occasion, and today was one of those occasions.
I’m usually not one to drink my breakfast… I like the thought of food, but this wasnt’ bad. I’m sure I will be having them the rest of the week to use up the bananas.
After dropping Justine off at school I went to Curves and had a great workout. I burned 387 calories in 32 minutes. I need that kind of motivation to get back into the routine.
I came home and did chores around the house… and looked for dresses.
Lunch was pretty good. I used up the rest of the ham on a sandwich thin with laughing cow cheese, and I tried out these new rice chips that I got from BJ’s. They are made my Blue Ginger and they are sooo good.
These things were so good… and even better were the stats. They are about 11o claories for 33 chips.
After lunch I ran on the treamill for 30 minutes and burned another 380 calories. I felt good, like I was on a roll.
And then it happened. I was checking my email. Saw one from J. Crew. Thought I would just look. And found my dress!!!
Just the basic black dress, but it was what I was looking for. When I saw it, it called my name. I paid a little extra for a quick shipment, so I can’t wait to get it and make sure it fits alright. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
I let out a sigh of relief.
After that I felt a hundred times better. And I was hungry, so I had an apple with peanut butter.
You know the best way to eat an apple with peanut butter..is to eat the apple with a little pb, saving most of the pb to eat off the knife. I love just eating pb, but won’t ever let myself do it…. unless it’s with an apple.
Justine and I went to Walmart after school.. and I so don’t want to go back. That place was so busy already. I can’t imagine what the next few days will be like. I made some cookie dough to cook tomorrow (surprise, surprise) and I made a salad for dinner.
I couldn’t have asked for a better dinner… well, I did have a glass of red wine with it which did make it perfect!
So after my breakdown yesterday I was determined not to let it ruin today. I really appreciate all of the comments that were left. You know my way to get over a bad day is to vent… and it’s so nice knowing that I do have people, maybe a few 🙂 that are there to listen. Thank you guys so much.
