I don’t really have much to say about my exercise except I did a lot of it. By which I mean, I steam cleaned my carpet more times than I can number. And I am counting that as exercise.
I did lose 3.5 lbs last week. I guess cleaning up Holly’s diarrhea was not conducive to my having an appetite. Go figure. As much as I want to lose weight, stressing out over and caring for a dog is not the way I choose to do it.
This week, however, I have plans to get back in the habit (or get into a habit because it feels like that’s all I keep saying “this week I will” do). I requested and picked up 3 Jillian Michaels DVDs from the library and, since I can only borrow them for one week, I guess that’s what I’ll be doing this week. All three DVDs. I’ll alternate and give myself a day off sometime this weekend.
The nice thing about finally losing weight is my wardrobe is gradually expanding, again. I have a pair of slacks I need to have taken in and two that don’t quite fit yet but will 5-10 pounds from now. But I tried on a couple of skirts, a jacket, a few blouses and lo and behold I have several more pieces I can wear to the office without feeling uncomfortable in things that are too tight.
It’s been so long since I last had to have things taken in that my seamstress didn’t recognize me. It feels sooooo good to be unrecognizable in this context!
