My mom took me shopping on Saturday for my birthday and I got several new shirts and one really cute skirt. I have bought new pants and shirts since I started losing weight, but I have been wearing the same skirts (they are really, really lose). I tried on a pencil skirt, thinking I was just trying it on to see what it looked like, but it was amazing. I loved it, so I had to get it.
I did not eat well over the weekend. It's probably just an excuse, but driving for 5 hours always puts us at one meal or another, so we stopped both going over and coming back and fast food restaurants. Then while my Mom and I were shopping she took me to IHOP. Although, I had the chicken florentine crepes (which were a fairly healthy option) I ate the entire plate because it was sooooo good. There were 2 crepes and I was full by the time I finished the first one, but it was so good I kept eating.
I think I might have overeaten this weekend because I decided to do my friend's version of a "cleanse." It's 10 days of only veggies, fruit, and lean meat . . . and I started today. I'm not completely committed to 10 days right now. In fact, if I get through today, I might just call it a success. =) I am seriously craving everything. There are a couple ladies that keep candy at their desk for everyone, and I have seriously been thinking about it since 10am. Did I mention that this means no coffee? or wine!? This may not be my smartest idea.
The whole "cleanse" thing kinda feels like a diet though. I don't want to diet, but I was thinking that maybe if I cut out everything I crave (bread, sugar, and let's be honest, wine) all at once, I can finally quit eating it so much. I don't want to get rid of it all permanently though.
Driving back to work after lunch (I am blessed with living close to work, so I go home for lunch often) I was thinking about how nice of a day it is today. I think I will do my "test" run today. I could use a little time to quit thinking about
