Trying to Catch Up

I am trying really hard to get caught up, but things keep distracting me.

Yesterday I wore a dress to work. I don't normally, but I was having lunch with the ex and I wanted to look cute. My momma got me the dress at Target (size 10!). On sale for 19.99. I bought the pink sweater at the gap and the trench coat at the gap as well. The brown boots are from nordies and I love, love, love them. Sorry for the bad lighting.

So I was at the gym yesterday and had an amazing workout. 45 minutes of weights and over an hour on the treadclimber. As I was on the treadclimber I read the section on Making Peace with Food. I am trying REALLY, REALLY hard to do this, but I am still struggling. One of the ideas is that if you allow yourself to have the food at any time you won't binge. You will give yourself unconditional permission to eat. This will be hard for me especially since I am so used to counting out servings or portion sizes. I decided to put this idea to the test. After the gym I went to the grocery store. I bought oatmeal (I bought quick oats when I should have bought old fashioned) and light bulbs (the roommate used some of the ones *I* bought, didn't tell me and when I went to get 2 of them, there was only 1). I also bought easter candy. Lots and lots of easter candy. Like a plastic garbage bag full. And I am going to give this a unconditional permission to eat thing a try.

Um. The trenchcoat and boots look super hot together!! I bet he was drooling.

And you're a girl after my own heart. I LOOOOOOOOOVE dark chocolate!

Not only are you the cutest thing I have ever seen, but those mini eggs are like food porn. My favorite thing EVER. I had a few handfuls at Nate's moms, but I didn't get any this year. Thank goodness.

Nathan is in the process of fixing me dinner again. I love the grill.

Miss you girl!

I love the coat, you look great! A size 10! woo-hooo! Good luck at not eating all of that candy! :)

Nikki- YES, dark chocolate is awesome!!! I am going to try to make it to the Counting Crows/Maroon 5 show at Riverbend. It all depends if I can get free tickets for it... are you going to go?

Krissie- Food Porn is such an awesome description! I hated those damn eggs when I was younger and now I can't get enough of them!

Nikki said...

Not sure yet - when to tickets go on sale? I haven't seen that info yet. I am strategizing my shows these days in an effort to see more of them for my money because i've imposed a budget on myself.

If I don't wind up going - I'd really like to see you. And you know you are welcome to stay with us!

Do you have/need a seat partner?

Poonie said...

Wow, you look so cute. Great ensemble and the coat looks fabulous.

Who doesn't love those damn eggs right?!

Sarah said...

Cat- Thank you for the kind words. I have realized being tall rocks!

Ashley- Thanks for stopping by and come back again!

Anna- I just can't pass up a deal, especially when chocolate is involved! And those peanut butter eggs? O-M-G. I normally am not a huge fan of peanut butter, but there is something about spring colors that make it SO good.

Poonie- Thanks for stopping by! I guess more people like those eggs than I thought!

Here's a shot of testosterone for your blog. You're fucking hot.

I like your outfit. You look like a fairy.
