I spend my time making my surrounding pretty because that's what I'm looking at.
But a colleague of Matt's invited us to join him at a fund raising event tomorrow. It's cocktail attire. This meant I had to go shopping for something to wear. Trying on clothes and looking in a full length mirror jolted me into reality.
So on Mother's Day I started a more personal project-getting my body in shape. I'm 5 days in now and feeling really good. I'm hoping that by putting this in writing I'll stick with it and I'll have such good results that I'll be able to show you a before and after of myself.
I can't do anything too rigid because I know I won't stick with it. I'm making a lifestyle change instead. So for now I'm walking in the mornings before Drew gets out of bed. I've stopped eating the massive quantities of junk (candy, cookies, scones, chips, etc.). I'm eating in a more conscience way and watching carbs and fats. I feel better already!
I'm looking forward to going out tomorrow night. I got my brows waxed, nails done, bought a new dress, bought some new makeup and I'm working on a new piece of jewelry. It's fun to have a change of focus.
I'm trying a new technique with wire wrapping and I think it looks fantastic.
Here is the Calvin Klein dress I just bought. It's simple and classic and most importantly fits me!
My old standby shoes I've had for years. Pretty basic.
Another dress option. A friend loaned this one to me. It's fun! But does a girl who is trying to slim down really want to wear horizontal stripes?....
