I've been handling everything that's going on in my life pretty well I think. Every once in a while I get down, but then I'm okay. This may sound silly, but lately I wasn't feeling good and it was because of my clothes. Through everything in the past couple of months with Dave being sick, I've gained a bit of weight. Nothing terrible, maybe 5-7lbs, but its enough that a lot of my pants are snug and too tight in my opinion.
So, I finally went out and went shopping. I swear this is the first time I went out shopping for myself in over a year. I got 3 new pairs of business pants, 2 short sleeved button up shirts, and new leggings, for about $190. THANK YOU COUPONS! My mom had a couple coupons to my favorite store, Express, and they had a bunch of buy one get one 50% sales. The pants are usually $80 full price!
There really is something to be said for clothes that just fit. I did have to go up a size, but I don't care. I'm not worried about it. I'm an active person and when my life isn't so crazy I'll get back into my running routines. In the mean time I just wanted to feel good in my clothes.
I had to get all of the pants hemmed, my highest of heels still had them touching the ground. My gram was happy to do it for me!
I can actually tuck in my shirts if I want without fear of the dreaded "muffin top."
Some other form of therapy...a haircut. I realized I haven't had a haircut since August. I have an appointment tonight. :-)
I'm a whiz at taking care of other people, myself not so much. I'm working on it.
I'll leave you with a pretty picture.
