What a great week! Debi wasn't able to make it to yoga last night, but I made myself go anyway and I'm glad I did. Can I just tell you how much I hate looking at myself in those yoga mirrors? I think it is a good motivator. Keep going until you can tolerate looking at yourself. Ha!

I have come to terms with the fact that my band is too tight. The reflux just will NOT go away. I have an appointment on Monday for another slight unfill. It will make things harder, of course, but it is the right thing to do.

Breakfast - coffee & slimfast
Lunch - fish soup
Dinner - Sweet potato hash with duck (probably) and a drink of some sort

Not sure what the weekend will bring, but I am hoping to continue my good choices.

I'm actually going to work out at lunch today! On a Friday! I went out yesterday so it isn't like I have been in all week. Plus, I'm looking forward to my next Serial podcast. AND I have my yummy fish soup to eat. I should take advantage of these times I feel motivated.

Another Gwynnie Bee day. This time the shirt. I have pictures with my blazer closed open.

 My friend runs a boutique in Indy and I ordered my new booties from her. They are adorbs.
I have been doing well with reading, okay with crocheting, but crappy in the home goals. I was going to do some things this weekend, but with yoga & lunch with Debi, an outing with BFF + church on Saturday evening and movies with one of my (practically) godsons on Sunday, I have booked myself out of much time.

I will commit to putting the Christmas stuff in storage. I took it all down and packed it up, but I haven't put it away. I will do that for sure. Anything else I get done will be gravy.


I'm posting a couple of things that caught my attention last night.

 This one speaks to me in two ways. First, four years ago when I changed my life and started treating my body well. Feeding it well, working out, sleeping...all the important things. Second, now when I'm starting to love my body regardless if I need to lose a few pounds or not. It may have taken 40 years, but I'm getting there. I may not love looking at my sweaty uncoordinated self in giant mirrors at yoga, but I'm doing it and eventually I will be fine even there.

I have mixed emotions about this. While it is no doubt true, it is more than that. Not everyone can just decide one day to be a runner (or whatever) it is much more nuanced than that. But the words all hit home. There's no magic pill. No special shake. No secret diet. I would change "Just get off your ass" to "You know what you have to do."

Finally, I'm planning to buy myself a personal engraved bracelet. I'm considering things to put on it. My current thoughts:
  • Make It Happen
  • Live Now
  • Choose Happy
I'm still considering...

Have a great weekend!

Love that you support your friend by buying your booties from her. <3

Today's outfit looks lovely with the jacket open!

My gym has yoga classes... I might just try it out, since you speak so highly of it! :)

I'm sitting here reading blogs on my day off instead of putting away my Christmas decorations or doing yoga. Thanks for the reminder!
Love the boots!
