I am sure most of you have your stores that are considered your “go-to” stores. For me, it is pretty much Target and Old Navy with some Gap thrown in there. I would think it is pretty obvious whether you are a loyal reader or have just started reading my blog.
For me, its their selection and definitely their price. Yes, I like to have nice and expensive things and I will splurge sometimes, but my wallet (or husband!) doesn’t allow me to purchase a shirt for $75 in five colors. I would rather take that $75 to Old Navy or Target and buy several things! I know a lot of you are with me on this one!
I headed to Old Navy on Sunday for a little retail therapy, and to check out their Memorial Day sale (hey- I know I have my own store, but I can still shop elsewhere!)
I love a good maxi dress, so I wasn’t at all surprised that I was drawn to this maxi skirt (I bought it in black too). It’s funny because as I am losing weight, one would think that I would want to start wearing more form fitting clothes, but honestly I have been so drawn to wearing looser clothes lately, like kimonos, or just baggy tee’s. I am loving the style!
Plus, even though I have noticed clothes fitting me differently there are still definitely parts of me that I absolutely want to cover as much as possible (like my upper arms) and my legs (hence, the maxi dresses and skirts).
This week in particular I have been wanting to cover up more- I would chalk it up to the fact that I did not lose at all this week. Not one ounce. Nothing. I am pretty sure I am fully to blame for that. With two picnics this past weekend, I went off the wagon a little. Not a ton, but I was definitely out of the Nutrisystem zone. I honestly think it was the mindless picking- like you are standing around the chips and guac chatting with friends, and before you know it you’ve had ten servings of chips and whole bowl of guac. Yikes.
Needless to say I totally beat myself up over the lack of progress. I didn’t go so far as to break out a bag of doritos and drown my sorrows, but I definitely was pretty pissed at myself, mainly because I know the week could have been a successful one. BUT! That’s what a journey is all about, right? Ups and downs. Ebbs and flows. This week is a new week! I kicked myself, got my ass in gear, and am fully ready to tackle the weekend and week ahead!!
Tis the season for picnics and BBQ’s, so next week I will share with you all some healthier options for all of your picnics that you may have coming up!
