Check out the new ticker at the top. I figured since we've been here in SA for a year, it's time for a change. I've got new things taking up space in my mind, and I thought it would be great to share my progress this way. Some of you have tickers already. Some don't. Why not add one?
So, let me start by saying this week I gained a couple ounces. Not worried. I had salty food a couple times. It was a busy week, and although we ate out a few times, I made excellent choices and feel good about the week overall. I did only make it to the gym three times, and I must admit on the day after the election I just didn't have it in me to work out. I tried. I did about halfway what I normally would do. But oh well, back on the bandwagon next week, right Karly? Right.
Moving on to the Future Fashion of Skinny JulieMom:
This is a little number I'd like to add to the private collection, if you know what I mean. Maybe without the weird hat thing though. I'm not really into masks. Or pointy ears.
Oh I jest! Just thought I'd throw that out there and shock some of you. Did it work?
Well, with the way my body is proportioned, as I gained weight, I stopped wearing dresses. I am a shirt and skirt girl all the way. It's a better look for me (now that I've lost weight, who knows?) but I would love to be able to wear something like this:
Very slim waisted, Audrey Hepburn-ish. Dontcha think? I love it. With a little pair of strappy black heels.
This would be great for here in SA. It's HOT here in the summer, and something like this that's flowy, and light is perfect. It's a bit low in the front, but it would fit me different than her anyway.
I also used to layer a lot to hide the, um, Pelfrey Curse. But that is a thing of the past. I can now wear t-shirts (not work out ones, REAL plain color t-shirts) with my capris, or skirts, and I feel ok about how it looks. I don't feel like the girls are just out there in their own space, if you know what I mean. Non-obtrusive, you might say. So I would LOVE a top like this to pair with pants, capris, or a skirt. So cute!
I could have probably wasted the whole day looking on line for things to wear. But honestly, I just want to be able to go into a store, pull something from any rack I want, and put it on. And have it FIT. The first time.
For Foodie Friday, I have to say I am taking this week off and hoping to test lots of new recipes for the coming weeks ahead. I have some great ones that feature lentils, tofu (don't groan!) and veggies. Stay tuned!
