I had a good day.
I didn't get any exercise in, unless you count shopping as exercise :)
I have some big changes coming up in my life in the next few months and today I took a mental break from all of that and just played at being a girl :) I tried on tons of new clothes - and bought a few - a beautiful, sexy, body skimming red summer dress that I cannot wait to wear, a new suit for interviews (the one I bought a few months ago is now too big, although I have not actually lost any weight), a tank type blouse to go under it, a black and a white shrug as last summers are falling off my shoulders.
What I really, really need are new bras, but I seem to be in between sizes...I tried on 3-4 different brands and styles and it was the same each time. 38C is too big in the cup and 38B has me overflowing. Hopefully a few more pounds and I will be able to fix that situation. I love buying new underwear - are you with me ladies - doesn't it feel so pretty and feminine to have pretty underthings that match? No matter where I go or what I am doing 2 things are true about me....my toenails are always manicured and painted and my underwear always matches. Even those that are basic, they match. Imagine if I was hit by a car and had to go to the hospital and my bra and panties didn't match??? The horror of it.
Speaking of pretty underwear, we were having a discussion at work the other day with two guys who work in our trailer, one is 21 the other is 45. There consensus is they don't care what the underwear looks like, why do we even bother with it? Seriously, I know I have a few guy readers...do y'all not appreciate pretty underthings on your women?
Shopping today was actually alot of fun as the suit and two blouses and the dress I bought were from the regular side of the store - albeit the largest sizes XL and XXL but no plus sizes and the suit is a regular 18 not 18W. This is the first time I've shopped from the "normal" side. I have to admit I did feel a bit of a fraud picking up stuff to try on at first and kept expecting my favourite saleslady (I go to the same places alot) to remind me I was on the wrong side of the store.
Lunch was at Red Robin - a gourmet burger place and I had my usual blackened chicken, I could only eat half and was full and I had two fries. 2 years ago, I would eat the whole sandwich and the whole basket of fries and half of another basket and still have "room" for dessert. I have definitely learned to listen to my body's fullness cues.
I bought new makeup and nail polish and tomorrow will get the colour on my toes changed.
All in all, today was about celebrating where I am at this moment in my life and just revelling in it instead of wanting to be somewhere else.
