Ok, so you want some updates? Here we go!
I mentioned in my last post that I finally bought new shoes.
TADA!!!! Aren't they beautiful? My new bff at Run On said I had Brooks feet and she could tell when I came in. Sigh, I know, I'm
SPI-belt from Run on. Good for shot bloks, almonds, cell phones, and teeny, tiny guns.
To the point. She is on a speaking tour for her series "Steppin' Out" and was at a local church. I got to go listen to her along with an amazing group of women. I highly recommend her books, cds, church, ideas, etc. I don't like to buy into others feelings or agenda, but I think God is leading her, and she is paying attention. Anyway, off the soapbox. At the end of the night, I won these super cute flowers, in this super cute rainboot vase!!! Got them on 3/1/13, and as of 3/13/13 they are still blooming. I'm pretty good at keeping cheap things alive eh? I mean, I'm still here...
So 7. Month 1 is food month. 7 food items, 4 weeks. Really, not as hard as I thought. Unless you count pizza as a food, and then I have to tell you no. Let's clarify, 7 ingredients. Choose wisely.
I was lucky enough to find PB and Sour cream each made with only 1 ingredient. Good luck, it's not as easy as you think. This made me pay more attention to the amount of 'stuff' in my food.
This is a picture of my back-up plan in case the stores were out of all my 7 acceptable food items. At least it's within the guidelines!! Thanks Trader Joe's, always there for me.
Month 2 of 7 is clothing. Here is my stack. We chose to not count undergarments (just like Jenn H.) nor did we count shoes. She did, we didn't. So what.
Dark basic jeans
Oatmeal heather 3/4 pocket shirt
Lounge pants...(I couldn't do it w/o these)
I considered the fact that this means I have to wear my black slacks M-W at work, then khakis on Thurs, and jeans on Friday. I could have traded my lounge pants for another pair of slacks, but, that wasn't happening. Since pj's count too, w/o the loungies I'd be sleeping in street clothes. Jenn did it, good for her. I need my softies. Weekends will be a mix of whatever i wear all week, or, lounge pants. In town on Saturday, and in church on Sunday. They love me, and they have to allow it...it's a God thing. Mwahahahaha. Undershirts I consider to be underwear, so I have my white tanks. And my workout clothes were allowed to not be counted. So there. Take that.
So far it's going well since I basically rotate the same 2 pair of pants and 3 cardis all week anyway. I doubt anyone will notice.
Finally, runner friend's birthday was yesterday, so we celebrated right. Pepperoni, mushroom and extra cheese pizza from Roma's, and a salad with cilantro dressing from Trader Joe's. Mmm-mmm. Oh, and moscato. Hey, food month is over! We also jammed out to Cake, and made some hair gel. Ya know, typical okie evening.
