On another note, the boots I have been wanting from Alloy came today, FINALLY! I had some issues with the order, and it supposedly arrived over the weekend, but that's what I get for shipping them to work. I hope they're cute on me, even though I'm hating how all of my skinny jeans look on me right now and that's what I'll have to wear with these. Oh well. Here they are:
Over the knee baby! haha.
I am really excited to go and eat my lunch today. I am starting a new book, which always makes me happy. Will got the "Beautiful Creatures" series for me, so I am starting the first book today. I feel bad not using my Kindle anymore, but honestly, nothing compares to a REAL book in your hands (and I'm a weirdo and love the smell of a new book!). So, if there's no chatty Cathy's upstairs when I go, hopefully I will get a few chapters in and enjoy my hour break :)
---on a totally new subject, I want to write a novel of my own someday. I always told my dad I'd write a book and buy him a big house with a wraparound porch and I intend to fulfill that goal. Whether it's a book people will actually read or not is a different story, haha.
I have some fresh fruits (strawberries, grapes and a plum) along with my turkey and cheese sammich on multigrain bread..ohh, and some special K crisps (chips?). And a honey vanilla greek yogurt. LOVE greek yogurt!! Why I am reporting my meal to you I have no idea, but it makes me feel better knowing I'm attempting a healthier lunch than I used to. While I do miss my fruit snacks and tastycakes, I do feel a bit better about myself. I'm also back on track with taking a multi-vitamin and I'm making an effort to wear my seatbelt properly too (I'm such a loser, lol). Mom and I plan to walk (and attempt a jog) tonight as well. I appreciate the exercise partner in her because otherwise, I'd go home, eat and then want chocolate as I sit on the couch watching TV shows. At least this way, if I go to her house after work, do the mile or two with her (whether it's a walk or jog, it's SOMETHING, right?) then I can go home and eat a light dinner and relax. I cut myself off from food at 7 p.m. and after that it's strictly water! In the future I might be more lenient with this rule, but for now, it's what I need to avoid nighttime snacking. I'm also super excited to browse my new copy of 300 meals under 300 calories and start making a menu for us that I can prepare to stay within my allotted calorie range. Jaimi gave me an idea for a low-calorie pudding as dessert, too so I want to get some of that my next trip to the store! I definitely think I have to learn the line between staying on track and letting myself indulge occasionally. I feel like I'm going into this too severe too quickly? But I don't know. I'll get better at it, I'm sure.
I don't know if Jaimi will ever read my blog, but I sure am addicted to hers and her positive outlook on a healthy lifestyle. She has inspired me to not only lose weight, but to keep it off by becoming active and healthy for LIFE! I don't want to be lazy anymore :)
Almost lunchtime. YAY!
