I had a great weekend. My friend Claudia was here with her boyfriend Nick and we had so much fun, baking beautiful cupcakes, playing games and just lazing around together. My weight this Monday morning is back to 206.0 and I am fine with that. I ate more salty foods than I normally would this weekend, which is fine, and I know a few days back into my routine and that extra 1.2 - and hopefully a bit extra will be off no worries.
I was thinking of NSVs lately, and here are a few of mine.
-Everything fits better- there are a lot of clothes that I am not a size down in, but just fit so much more comfortably and flatteringly now. Like my North Face rain jacket - I used to struggle to zip it, now it's on over my big hoodie and scarf.
-My shoes are getting looser - I'm wearing my Birkenstock clogs today and I had to change the buckle -they were sliding off too easily.
-I can just shop when I need to. This is so huge. Last week I realized that it's getting a lot colder in Vermont, and I needed a couple more sweaters. So I went to the store, tried on a bunch of styles, colours and sizes and chose the one that looked best. The guy at the store helped me, I wasn't too embarrassed. I chose one. It was so nice not to be choosing a style because it covered me or best hit my flaws, but just to choose the one that was prettiest and most stylish and warm.
Hope everyone has a great Monday! I was at the gym this morning, now headed to meet a friend for lunch and then do a whole lot of math homework! Yuck!
PS - Here's a pick of me from before Synagogue last night wearing my new hot pink M.A.C. lipstick... love M.A.C.!
