Since it's a consignment store, the clothes are more expensive than Goodwill, which is another place I buy my clothes. But I had brought some clothes in to consign recently, and I figured I'd just use that money to buy a pair of jeans or something (most jeans are around $10; most shirts about $6-7). I had $14 in my consignment account, so I happily shopped the $1 racks and found some goodies:
|Purple sweater by Ann Taylor Loft, $1|
|Pink/red striped sweater by American Eagle, $1|
|(Super cozy!!) Pink sweater by Gap, $1|
|Plaid button-up shirt by American Eagle, $1|
|Blue t-shirt by Abercrombie, $1|
|Black terrycloth hoodie by Moda International|
|Brown hoodie sweater by Ruff Hewn, $1|
|Blue long-sleeved t-shirt by Aeropostale, $1|
|Jeans by Abercrombie, $1|
Some of you were asking for an update on where my Garmin is now... Jen has it in Texas right now, and she just wrote a blog about it. I was so surprised to see the notes that everyone has been passing along with it--I can't wait to read them! I think there are about 5 or 6 more people in queue for the Garmin right now, so it'll be a while. I'm glad that everyone seems to be enjoying trying it out, though!
Today was my Wednesday Weigh-In, and I'm happy with the results this week:
|Weight is 134, down 1 pound from last week (and only 1 pound away from goal!)|
|Body fat is 19.8%, which is up 0.2% from last week|
I'm only one measly pound from goal weight right now!! I'm so happy to be maintaining the weight loss that I've had--and I know from experience that the longer I am at a particular weight, the easier it is to maintain it. I've now lost 10% of my weight since the beginning of November. Maybe (hopefully?) I'll be at my goal weight next week for my weigh-in.
I still haven't binged even once since my surgery 44 days ago. There were a couple of days this week that I ate for emotional reasons (boredom, loneliness) rather than hunger, but I was aware of it at the time and I didn't turn it into a binge. I'm okay with that. I think even "naturally" thin people eat for emotional reasons once in a while.
I did a slow and easy 3-miler on the dreadmill again this morning. I'm afraid I'm never going to pick up my pace back to what it was prior to surgery. A 10:00/mi pace is hard right now. I'm not even going to worry about adding distance until I start training for the half-marathon. I'm just doing three 3-mile runs per week until February.
Since my boys are at their Holiday Camp all day, Sarah and I are going to the movies. We're going to see The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I read the book, and thought it was pretty decent, although I didn't like it enough to read the sequels. Hopefully the movie is okay.
And hopefully I can avoid the pull of Mrs. Fields at the mall.... ;)
