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.

Oh look!  The new chair!
Me, sitting in the chair (why do I feel like this looks like a school photo?)
I think Im just trying to make the best of my crazy week from hell…

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)

Thank you JANE of Jane Button Photography for taking some photos of me today!
