Better than a shopping spree!

Bet you didn't think there was anything better than a shopping spree! But there is....

Getting not one but TWO boxes in the mail from the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants!

The first was from Jen and had a bunch of really cute tops in it. They are already washed and ready to wear!

The second was from Shrinking Mommy and had a ton of pants, capris, and tops in it. Some of the pants even still had tags on them! I have to tell you guys - I think she owns (owned) more jeans than they sell at the Gap. Seriously - she has given me no fewer than a dozen pairs of jeans!

Thanks soooooooooooo much to both of you. I really, really appreciate it and will certainly pay it forward when I actually lose enough weight to pass my too-big clothes on!

I had a horrible weekend eating. The good news is I am still struggling with certain foods sometimes (Hamburger Helper was not my friend last night), so even though I ate a bunch of crap, I didn't eat much at meal time, so the overall caloric intake wasn't too dramatically awful. The scale was only up 1 lb this morning, and I'm determined it's leaving with a friend or two by tomorrow.

I do great during the week, but then DH comes home, and I let it fly out the window. I'm going to have to work on moderation when he's home.

I hit my goal of working out three times last week. My goal this week is four times. Considering I have a VERY long day tomorrow (have to travel 4+ hours each way for a two-hour meeting), I am going to have to be vigilant about getting those workouts in.

And I didn't get up this morning and workout, as I stayed up waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too late last night watching the healthcare stuff. I am a political junkie...not good for my sleep or workout needs!


  1. Yay - you received them!
    Great job on working out 3 times! I know you can do 4 this week. We'll all be waiting to hear how you did. :)'s that for pressure?!

  2. Oh lucky you! I would love to get a box of clothes in the mail - it would be like Xmas.

  3. i am so glad you like them! i am a clothes whore. what can i say...

    you need to ask your husband to help you stay focused on the weekends. it will help make you accountable...
