I did not post a "What I Wore Sunday" outfit yesterday and I'm sure you all are clamoring at the bit to know why. Here's the reason:
The outfit itself was meh - nothing special.
I felt like a dumpy, old lady wearing it. And I looked like a dumpy, old lady wearing it.
The extra 5 pounds I gained in January (remember my complaints?) are really starting to effect how I feel and look in my clothes.
After I looked at the unposted WIWS pictures, I decided I needed to drop those 5 pounds immediately.
The first part of my plan is to ramp up my running. It has been sporadic since the early fall and that's part of my problem.
What did we wake up to this morning? RAIN! Ugh.
I'll run when its 28 degrees. I'll run when it's 98 degrees (okay maybe that's a bit of an extreme but you get my drift.)
I will even keep running if I'm on a run and it starts raining.
But I will not, I repeat, I will not, start a run in the rain.
So my new "drop the five January pounds" is off to a less than stellar start.
The second part of my plan is to eat less white food - no breads, no rice, no flour, no potatoes - you know, all the really good stuff.
This is going to be hard considering our Girl Scout cookies just arrived this weekend. And I eat a lot of rice. I love me some rice.
I just moved all the Girl Scout cookies to the garage where I'm hoping out of sight, out of mind will work. And I am heading to the grocery store this morning and there is zero rice on my list. There arebread and potatoes on my list - but those are for the family...I will just have to resist.
Be strong Beth, be strong.
We'll see how it all goes.
