This is a continuation of my Easter break at home. So on Thursday I met with my trainer. I got in about 10 minutes of cardio before we started weight training. He said he could definitly tell a difference in the way I looked. I of course wanted to get on the scale at the gym to see my progress. The scale at the gym where we work out always seems to be pretty generous. It had me weighing in at 226. I guess in the gran scheme of things it is only a number. I had a great workout. I have definitly increased the amount of weight I can lift since the last time we worked out, so I am very happy about that. After the work out I went home and put a second coat of primer on the family room walls. That was definitly a work out. I remembered how much I hated painting and why I hadn't done it for like 3 years. I ran some errands in the afternoon and just crashed in the evening. I did get up to watch the WVU game though.

Friday was suit shopping day. My mom gave me her credit card and her friend went with me. We went to Kaufmann's and found SEPERATES that worked perfectly. I was a misses size 16 jacket and a misses size 18 skirt. We then headed to talbots where I got the softest silk blouse and a pair of pants. The pants were $118 and I later decided I had a pair of black pants that would work, so I asked my mom to take them back. I just couldn't justify spending all that money on a pair of pants I might only wear a few times due to the weightloss. I got some basic black shoes from payless because apparently 11s are hard to come by anywhere else. We then had lunch at one of my favorite restaurants in Charleston. I had my chargrilled chicken julienne salad with dill dressing and I indulged in about 4 pieces of bread, but it was damn worth it.

Saturday we had an early easter brunch at my mom's friend's house and then we watched the WVU game. It was nice and there was some good food there and it was all pretty healthy. On Sunday I hit the road back to Nashville.

When I got back to Nashville my roomate was craving pancakes so we went out in search of an IHOP. We found one that was open and we had a nice Easter dinner of pancakes.

So Out of my whole easter break the only days I did not hit the gym were on Saturday and Sunday. I would say that is pretty good and I am pretty proud of myself =)
