Isn't PDog lucky to have such a sexy gf rockin the socks and sandals look?
This morning I woke up and actually remembered to weigh myself first thing. I have now officially lost 5% of my starting weight. I am so excited because this was my first mini goal! I feel so accomplished. I've never set little goals like that before and I knew I was getting close, but I didn't know I was that close. 10% is my next goal. I am starting the SASS challenge with the DONE Girls on Sparkpeople so this was a really good start. I also did my measurements today and in the last month I have lost 7 inches over my body. I have one thing to say about all of that:
Today I wanted to go to the zoo, but it ended up being a little too cold and rainy. So instead, I decided to head out to a running store and get fitted for a pair. I have a pair of Adidas currently and they kill my arches. It hurts enough that I just don't want to go out in them. I don't think I know anyone that has been fitted for running shoes, so I wasn't sure where to go. I didn't want to go all the way to Seattle, so I decided to head north. I ended up in Mount Vernon at Skagit Valley Running. They were really nice and I ended up really liking the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 12. They were really comfy and I noticed the difference in the arches immediately. They were only about 3 times what I would normally spend on shoes, but I think it was worth it. Unfortunately, they had to order my size so I won't get them until next week. Here is the link for the photo. http://runningshoes.com/news/spring-preview-brooks-adrenaline-gts-12/
Me and PeeWee (boyfriend) also went to Lunner. We went to Red Robin and I chose unhealthy choices and went way over my calorie goals for the day. I let myself get to the point of no return hunger wise. I'm not beating myself up over it though.
There was a Famous Footwear near by and I wanted to go in there for a little peeksy. I rarely go out unless it's some type of sporting event or a dinner. I have a birthday party to go to next weekend. A bunch of us girls are going to dinner then out to a casino/club. I am going to need a new outfit that I'm going to look for this week, but I decided to look for a good deal on some shoes. I ended up finding the cutest sandals. They aren't something I would normally wear, but for $20 and all their cuteness, I had to get them! Now I'll just have to find an outfit to match them. P said that he would buy me the outfit at his work. Lucky girl right here! I am really excited to see all my bank girls. It's probably been about a year since I've seen them all because I had a lot go on in 2011.
Next weekend is going to be uber busy. I have a hockey game on Friday. Yep, here I go pretending to be a sports fan again. Then the birthday shenanigans on Saturday. And my dad's birthday party on Sunday. Busy! I'm looking forward to it though.
Also, when I got home I had the BIC bands that I ordered in my mailbox! I am so excited! I put one straight on and it hasn't budged. I am so glad to have found this company. A great cause and a great product!
