Today was a tough one for me, hence the lack of interesting photos. This new diet/change, plus a windfall of problems to solve and issues to resolve with work – Ive felt like Im about to explode all day. Thankfully, I ate a really good breakfast and lunch. I think I have something like 800 calories left for the rest of the day. Ive been using myfitnesspal.com – and its great. Very easy to use too. Last night, as soon as I got home from work, I walked around my block twice. Now, my block isnt your average block – its a huge loop and it has plenty of strenuous uphill parts, as well as several cool/down downhill parts. I did that twice, Im figuring its a half a mile, maybe 3/4mi if you go around twice. Ill make sure next time to find out for sure. My calves burned, I got red and flush and I huffed and puffed a bit, here and there. But it felt good. My calves are a little sore today. Today, same thing, and then followed up with some good stretching.
Nothing too interesting going on here today. The pollen count is a bit high, so my head feels like a bowling ball and Im sneezing up a storm. I got a new chair for the dressing room. Thats exciting, right? 😉
You know, to put your purse on, or have your little one sit and wait with you. It made me excited to buy it, from a local antique shop for $14. Woo!
And todays outfit, an epic fail. I have these go-to boots. They are black leather riding boots – Bandolino, Circa 2010. They are falling apart and starting to do the slouch thing, even though they arent supposed to. I suppose I could retire them but I may take them to the cobbler to get a second life. I mean, they cost freakin $230 – they better last more than a year and a half! – Anyway, no shots of them today… those photos didnt come out well. I need to study Lauryn and how she models so pretty. I suck at it.
50s Aztec Printed Cotton Shirtwaist Dress – Estate sale in Newburyport last summer (its faded to crap on one side – you can kind of see it on my left hip, but I dont care, its comfy and cute!)
Black Cardigan – I have no idea. Ive literally had that thing since college.
Lipstick – MAC Girl About Town (my go-to color when Im wearing drab colors)
