I changed my blog name! I have a Tumblr account with this name and for a very long time it was totally inaccurate. But now I find myself taking a yoga class, starting C25K and learning how to eat. I became my name.
I can’t remember which came first, the Tumblr or this. But I wouldn’t have named this blog that at the time because it didn’t fit where I was and what I was doing. The Tumblr was just photos and it didn’t seem as important.
I ordered some yoga clothes today and I am really excited. I have been struggling a little with finding a shirt I like, not too tight or loose, not too short or long. Bleh. So I went to Kohl’s to see what I could find and I found a whole line of Gaiam yoga clothes! They were out of a lot in my size, but I did try on a tank and it fit. So I came home and went online ordered a tank (eek!) and a tee, plus two pair of harem pants. I think I will feel less self conscious about my stomach and booty in a looser pant, and they’re elastic at the calf, so they shouldn’t be an issue if my legs go in the air. That made the length of the shirts less important. I think it will all work for me. Oh! And I was in the process of exchanging a pair of sandals (that took forever) and ended up with yoga sandals. SO cute!
I am so excited to be moving in this direction. I have been eating well, still snacking but I’ve cut it way down. I have been making eggs with fresh veggies in the morning. I bought stuff to make wraps for lunch and I have been eating leftovers. I make a healthy dinner and the plan is to have a bit of chocolate at night. But some peanut butter filled pretzels have slipped in there. Not too bad all in all.
I spent four days with my mother this weekend. It made me very aware of my negativity. I need to rein that in if I don’t want to end up like her. I shopped for a ring with the intention of getting something to remind me to calm down and stay positive. But then I came across a semicolon ring and I could not resist. (In case you don’t know the significance of a semicolon: Project Semicolon) But I am going to a big handmade show this weekend and I need one more bangle from a favorite vendor to round out my stack so I will look for something for the reminder.
So that’s the update! It is super late, shame on me. I will need to nap tomorrow!
