Well hellooooo! (Side note: The episode of Friends where Ross & Rachel get married in Vegas was on last night and the scene where they say “Well, helloooo, Mrs. Ross!” and “Hellooooo, Mr. Rachel!” is one of my all-time favorites. Ok, that’s all.)
Anyways, before I start this week’s AFTF, I just want to A. State how amazing you guys are, and how much I loved all your input on my post from earlier this week. I don’t know what I did before I had all of you to pour these thoughts out to, and I’m pretty sure it just involved a lot more whining to Brandon. Who am I kidding, I still do that constantly…. and 2. I also want to assure you all that everything is all good, a few of you reached out to me like the sweet angel faces you are, which means the world to me. But it was more of just a general post about a bunch of things that have just been weighing on my mind lately. Basically, I’m just a Sensitive McInsecure pants.
Moving along. Let’s do this, shall we?
1. I did some damage at Old Navy earlier this week, but it was pretty awesome. I got like 3 bathing suits for something ridiculous like $25, and a few new workout items. Everyone at my gym dresses really cute, and normally I wouldn’t really care, but for some reason I’m starting to feel like all my old ratty tshirts and cut off yoga pants needs to find their home in the trashcan. After my first (and last for a while) Lululemon purchase, I’ve been on the hunt for equally as cute, but MUCH less expensive workout shtuff. Enter the Old Navy knock off Lululemon workout top:
(This picture is actually taken from Polyvore bc apparently these are no longer online? But they had a bunch of them in my local store and they’re under $20. Ahhhhmazing.)
2. I also bought some extremely short shorts from the ‘Nave, thinking that they’d be the solution to my extremely warm gym. OH NO, MY FRIENDS. Let me tell you something. Working out in short shorts, just results in them slowly creeping up and getting even shorter. I literally felt like I was working out in underwear, and at one point apologized profusely to the girl behind me. She was very kind and said she didn’t even notice, so either she’s the nicest person in the world or a fantastic liar. Either way, I appreciate her not throwing dollar bills at me.
3. Sticking with the gym/healthy theme, I will update you on my progress so far of Operation Get It Together. I have been very successful in cutting out the weeknight boozing, having a few single beers here and there, but no wine. Not a sip. I’ve also been sticking with My Fitness Pal, and actually not hating it. Surprisingly. I’m doing a really good job with my caloric intake during the week, and have been really consistent with the gym. My weight isn’t moving too much, but I’m definitely seeing physical changes already and my clothes are just the tinciest bit looser. I’m definitely motivated to keep it up, so hopefully I’ll stay on track and be back where I need to with some consistency.
But this matters not, because it’s the weekend now, and that means wine time. Also a pizza for dinner sounds like a fantastic idea. Whateva, I do what I want.
Have a great weekend! xo
