Last night I took the night off from knitting and blogging. I worked out instead. I am trying to get some normalcy back into my routine. Earlier this fall I was hit hard with bronchitis and tonsillitis (thanks germy kindergartner who lives in my house!) and stopped working out all together. This wouldn’t have been a big problem, but my calorie consumption did not decrease. NAY, it enlarged. I also have a ridiculous sweet tooth, and I let it push me around. A lot. Anyway, like 99% of America, I overindulged too much this last holiday. It’s my mom’s fault. She made 5 pies, pumpkin bars and carrot cake for 10 people. And one of those people is a baby who didn’t eat any of it. Well, I just had to do my part to make a dent in it! That’s courtesy! I’m feeling the guilt now, not to mention chest pains and wheezing, so I guess that’s my body’s way of telling me to break out the Wii fit again. I went for a 10 minute stationary jog this morning, 10 minute free step, 10 minutes of advanced step and 8 minutes of SUPER HULA HOOP. Super hula hoop will kick your ass. That’s the hardest thing on there for me.
I have been doing some online shopping, as I am sick of what’s in the stores these days. I dunno. Fashion has been uninspiring lately, and I’m pretty sure it’s because I’m not shaped like a clothes hanger. After baby #2 I have some junk in the trunk. Today’s fashion thinks we should be built like 8 year old boys. So…I went and bought this to make myself feel pretty.
I have no idea where I will wear this. I just know that I like it, and I rarely spend money on clothes anymore. If I ever have a giftcard somewhere, it usally goes to something I think is cute for the kids. I saw lots more other dresses on the Unique Vintage website and I would buy them all, if when I reached in my pocket there was money, and not a lone moth flying out.
Dee Anna will be coming over to watch The Biggest Loser tonight, so I will probably be getting some knitting done then, which I will post about tomorrow. This was basically a quick blurb about my shopping conquest and a little note to say I was thinking about you. I didn’t forget how you like new posts. We should do coffee sometime.
