Even though I’m not weighing myself for the blog for the month, I stepped on the scale this morning. I felt like I was losing weight and I wanted to see if it was true.
I’m finally past my stupid plateau that lasted several months. I’m finally on the downward slope again. Hurray for things finally working! Operation Sexification is a win already! My body is feeling lighter and better and that in turn makes me feel slightly sexier. (Not sure how that works, it just does.)
I also finally gave in and started buying new clothes. Since I’ve got a roadtrip to pay for coming up soon I was trying to avoid any unnecessary expenses. But a lot of you finally convinced me in was a necessary expense. So I bought a few things, and will go buy a few more this week. I have to be honest, having just a few new things totally helped with how I feel. I’m not one to buy clothes often (everything I had was old or something thrifted/given to me), so new things definitely are a luxury for me that make me feel good if they fit and look good.
A few things I bought:
That’s the outfit from the gap everyone loved and I also got a long grey cardigan because I’ve wanted one for the longest time. Things I still want on my list: some sexy shoes. Yeah, I pretty much always wear (and only own) tennis shoes and flip flops. My shoes still desperately need an upgrade.
I did buy some more shorts. Three pairs in fact. This raises my total of shorts to three! And what’s more? One was a size 14 and fit perfectly. It’s funny how sizes NEVER match up through different brands and stores. I can wear 14 at one store but still 16 at another. There is no consistency in clothing sizes. Even so, I’m wearing a size 14! That’s another step in the right direction.
I feel like I’m making a lot of steps in the right direction. This feels like a really exciting time for me where things are finally happening in the weight loss/healthiness department. I think I do best when I can get some kind of consistency and routine going, even if it’s just drinking water and moving 30 minutes each day. Routine helps for things like this to go super duper fantastically well.
Speaking of routine… now that it’s summer I’m going to institute a new summer schedule for my blogging. Yep, I’m going to try to implement a posting schedule – to help me post less! This is mostly for sanity’s sake as I’m soon to embark on a trip to California, a 2 + week long coast to coast road trip, and a move across the world. Needless to say, I’m going to be busy this summer. Posting every day here is something I need to let go.
I still plan to update every other day or whenever I have time. And if possible I will be updating my food blog daily because I feel that it’s vital to keeping me accountable with my food choices. I will also probably end up posting some roadtrip stuff there since a lot of our trip revolves around food (it’s true). So make sure you hop over there and subscribe.
I love posting here daily but I just want to give myself the out in case that isn’t always possible with the things that will be happening for me this summer. So you can expect posts here every other day or so and with Sundays my check in day as always. :)
Things are going very well for me. How are they going for you? Anyone need some encouragement?
