Unfortunately, Xanax makes me groggy, so it took me a while to really "wake up" this morning. We turned on the news to see the latest info on the Boston bombers; I was surprised to see that one of them was dead, and they were searching for the other. That was fast, considering the FBI just released their photos last night. (Yay! Just before this post went live, he was the other bomber was caught)
I had to go to David's Bridal today to try on the bridesmaids dress I'll be wearing in Jerry's sister's wedding this September. I saw on Twitter that Starbucks was giving free coffee this morning until noon, so Jerry came with me because the closest Starbucks happens to be next to David's Bridal.
First, though, we stopped at Sam's Club. I told Jerry that we had to make a list and stick to the list; I always end up spending way too much money at Sam's Club! We only needed three items.
A very simple in-and-out trip. It never ends up that way, though, does it?! This is what we walked out with:
The dress was strapless, and floor-length (it's an outdoor wedding), which didn't thrill me, but I really liked the color. Here is a pic from their website:
I have no idea how it looks on me, because David's Bridal doesn't have mirrors in the dressing rooms! I'm guessing that's probably because they want you to step out of the room and be surrounded by mirrors and other people looking at you, but I just didn't feel comfortable doing that. It feels kind of like asking strangers to judge how you look in a dress, before you can even see it. I asked Jerry to come in and give his opinion, and he said it looks "good". Not that he would tell me if it didn't! ;)
After I left, I wished I'd have thought to have him take my picture in it, so I could see what it looked like. The dress was expensive, so I didn't order it today (I don't have to order it until June-ish). Just hoping I maintain my weight until September!
It felt SO strange not to run today. I was feeling really antsy all day, and I wanted to run. When we were walking around Sam's Club, however, I felt that small twinge in my knee, so I knew I wasn't imagining things. I'm going to stick with my plan of no running until Monday, no matter how good my knee may feel tomorrow or Sunday.
It's hard to adjust my eating, though--usually, I earn a lot of activity PointsPlus--about 10-11 per day on average. I'm going to be careful to ration out my weekly PP. Instead of my usual glass of wine and Dove Promise last night, I had tea with the Dove--saving 5 PP right there. Jerry is off this weekend, and we talked about maybe going out to dinner at La Pita tomorrow, so hopefully I can manage to work it in ;)
