I had to return a pair of shoes today at lunch. I’d actually purchased them to wear with my wedding dress but decided that the heel was too high. I don’t wear heels that often and suddenly wearing 3.25 inch heels in my wedding dress was probably a recipe for disaster so I bought MUCH lower ones online instead. Since I was in the mall, I decided to stop by New York & Company. Seriously, that entire store is always on sale in one way or another. I think the entire store was actually on sale last week, but they still had a lot of good deals. I had my honeymoon in Hawaii on the brain and bought a pair of shorts. Mine are striped though.
And some linen cargo capris.
And a shirt for work. In a different color than shown.
And then I felt much better. Actually, it wasn’t the shopping. My moods tend to only last for a day or so. Lucky for me and really lucky for Jason! We made a list of all of the things we have to do and seeing it written out made it a little more manageable. Instead of thinking that I have a million and one things, I can see that it’s really only 15 or so. Still a lot.
I did P90X chest/shoulders/triceps tonight. I think this is my favorite dvd except that I can’t do half of the pushups. I guess my muscles were just tired because I couldn’t do the clap push ups on my knees at all this time and last week I did 9. Hmm. I took some pictures of my progress the other day. I was supposed to do it at day 30, but forgot so they’re around day 35. Sorry, I’m not going to show you. I just am not comfortable parading around in my bikini for the entire internets to see. But I can tell you what I saw.
From the front, I looked exactly the same.
From the back, my hips looked smaller (less muffin top) and my upper back looked stronger.
From the side, my stomach looked flatter.
So, it’s definitely progress. I’d like to look different from the front, but I’ll take two out of three.
