We had a crazy long weekend of shopping! This used to be a necessary evil, but I’m enjoying it more and more as I work down to new low sizes. Maybe TOO much. I mean, these clothes are only going to fit for a few months and then I’m going to need new ones again… But it’s such a relief to find things that fit and look nice!
I bought a pair of shorts and capris on sale/clearance at Kohls thinking they’d be my drawer goal to work down to because they’re TWO sizes down from my current jean size. However, the capris fit! They’re even a little big in the waist (but most pants are that way for me right now until my butt and thighs catch up). The shorts also fit – they’re just a little too tight to wear comfortably. I’ll be wearing them sooner than later.
I also bought two new bras, down another size AND a cup size. That Man wasn’t too happy about that one.
I also hit a thrift store and bought another pair of capris and two more shorts one size down from my jeans. Funny enough, none of them fit yet — but they’re not “W” sizes, so they’re cut differently. I’ll save them in my goal drawer and hope they fit by summer.
RT shopping update: I ordered two dresses from Kiyonna last week. Crossing fingers they fit. If they do, I need to order 2 more. After hitting dozens of shoe stores, I finally found a pair of heels that I think won’t cripple me too badly (plantar fasciitis). I also found two casual pairs that are super comfy. All from the Clarks outlet store in Branson. I wasn’t going to buy so many shoes, but oddly enough, I’ve gone down a size there too. None of my old shoes fit any longer, and even my tennis shoes are a little big. If I wear slippery socks, my foot definitely slides around a little, even in my new Nikes. I don’t know if I was holding fluid in my feet/ankles or maybe I just had fat feet too! I have gone up several sizes in shoes in the last 13 years – but I blamed it on pregnancy. After each kid, I had to go up in shoes. Maybe that was related to weight instead because I never completely lost the pregnancy weight gains in between kids and then continued to gain after the fact.
Other good news:
- Turned in Vicki edits this morning (early!)
- Started working on Tecun edits this morning, due 2/29.
- Lost just enough to finally hit a new decade on the scale. Not a huge loss but significant!
- This is my last week of Power 90 level 1/2. On March 1st I’ve decided to move up to level 3/4 for the last 30+ days. I’m going to continue doing Power 90 right up until I need to leave for RT in April. Then I’ll decide if I’m going to do another round of Power 90 or possibly move up to P90X. *gulp*
I’ll update on Power 90 at 60 days later this week with final measurements and pounds lost!
