It's amazing what 1 good OP day can do to your confidence. Tuesday I felt sloppy, frumpy and basically just huge. But after a great OP day yesterday, I feel much more in control and I feel ready to take on these extra pounds that jumped on track over the Holidays AND get down to my goal weight (which is now about 15 pounds away instead of 10)
Last night I went shopping at Suzy Shier. I needed some new dress pants and although I thought maybe I shouldn't go shopping since I have these extra pounds on, I went anyway since I didn't want to miss the big sales. I figured that I could just buy the pants a little snug and then as the pounds floated away, they would be perfect. So I brought a few size 9's in with me hoping, I could squeeze my Holiday stuffed butt into them. I tried on a few pair that were no good (they fit, just didn't like them) Then I tried on the last pair and they felt a little snugger ( not even a word, I know) and there was a little muffin top action but not much and I knew if I dropped the Holiday weight, they would be perfect. (plus Scott said I look super hot in them) Off I went to the cash register. When the sales girl started folding them up the tag was on top and I realized they were a 7! A 7! I know many of you ladies have been talking about vanity sizing so I kind of had mixed feelings about buying a 7. Am I supposed to be happy or do I chalk it up to vanity sizing? Any shoppers notice vanity sizing taking over Suzy?
Anyway so today is another great OP day and I'm looking forward to staying on track. I feel so much better already! I'm hitting the gym tonight and looking forward to it. Yup, I said looking forward to it. It's been way too long. I'm actually anxious to get my butt to the gym. I'm thinking about hitting up some strength training today since I have a dinner date later and don't want to get too sweaty. We'll see though how it goes.
How is everyone making out back on the wagon?
Anyone have any great recipes for me to try out in the kitchen this weekend?? I think I've decided that Sunday will be my "try-a-new-recipe" day. Suggestions??
