Sitting “pretty”  at 193.0 this week

I’m glad it’s stable, it was jumping around the week before (like a liiiiiitttle too close to starting with a 2). 

I worked out yesterday for the first time since I got was taken down by a cold. I need to get my ass into gear! 

I said yes to the dress, the bridesmaid dress.

My bestie is getting married in September and she let us each pick our own dress – from the same designer, in the same length, fabric, and color of course, but still exciting!

We decided on 2 strapless and 2 strapped dresses to please all the bridesmaids. With all the ‘maids and bride in New England they picked dresses/shopped together and I tackled dress shopping this week.

The first place I went to had like 40 options, it was great. I tried on the 15 or so I liked or didn’t hate. I quickly had a top 4. As it turns out the dress I liked best didn’t look like much on the hanger.

I wasn’t ready to commit and tried another place today will far less options and after consulting with the bride and MOH, I said yes to the dress.

It was SUPER flattering and it will be “midnight” aka a dark blue. I’m actually excited about this dress.





Finally working on the t-shirt quilt I’ve been talking about for years and found this throwback gem.

Wow, that is a throwback. Anybody still in touch with LifeAsALion? I never met him IRL but I loved his energy and message.

Does anybody remember doing the Fitpocalypse back in 2011? 

He’s not on tumblr anymore but seems like he’s doing well! No super villain or other crazy training though as far as I know

I’m still alive.

I’m still happy.

I’m still working out.

I’m still closer to where I want to be than where I don’t want to be.

And I hope you’re doing well.

I reached out to Mr 365/LifeAsALion on FB and told him he was missed, glad to see him chime in!

I don’t reblog often, but this was worthy!

Me 50% of the time: I love to run. Green beans are amazing. Who needs cake when I can have strawberries. PROTEIN. Oh my god peanut butter. I have so much energy! This is my fourth bottle of water today. I love being healthy.

Me the other 50% of the time: I want to sleep for 6 years. When did my bed become heaven. Why did I eat 3 twinkies. I’m too lazy to put on a bra. Being a girl sucks. I don’t feel like exercising.
