That's where I found my journal. These weekends away are killer! And I have another one coming up this month.
I managed one out of two Down Days while I was away. Got back on track yesterday, and am back at my pre-weekend weight. (182) Feeling good.
Honey is almost at his first goal (170). He has hit it, and even gone below after his Down Days. Once he hits it after Up Days, he'll be there. He is considering pausing there for a while, both to practice maintenance, and to let me 'catch up'. It would probably be a long wait for me. I am a good 10-12 pounds behind him. But I think he might find his body composition shifting during maintenance, so I am all for it.
I bought a new pair of jeans at the thrift store. Size 16 instead of 18, and they fit nicely. There is a brand/style that suits my body shape(Gloria Vanderbilt/Amanda), and I just went looking for one in the next size down. Didn't try it on- just bought on faith. And it worked! These will be my summer jeans. I am hoping by the end of summer that I'll be cruising for a pair in size 14!
Also, they only cost $3.99. Yay for thrift stores! I also grabbed a dress for $1.29.
Yes, you read that right! $1.29! Teal microfiber, and it looks great on me.
It will look even better with my corset. ( I bought a corset this last weekend at the convention.) It is an overwear corset, meant to be seen. Black and royal blue. It will be the basis for my steampunk costume for next year and Halloween. But, I might sneak it into my regular wardrobe for fancy occasions. Like wearing my teal dress. Already scheming where I can wear it. It might be a bit much for Denny's on Father's Day. I modeled it for Honey and he was appreciative.
Taking the girls out for a sushi lunch today, to celebrate the last week of school.
Chica is still gone, and we haven't seen the little boy dogs, either, so I think the three of them have hit the road for Mexico.
Middlest has started applying for summer jobs. Eldest is coming for a visit on Saturday. This Friday we have our Bon Voyage party for the friend who is moving away. Littlest made brownies last night to bring to her friends today. She is the Brownie Queen around here. Very fussy about her recipe. I need to start buying cocoa in bulk, I think.
And that's it. Off to cruise a few journals, though I despair of catching up before I have to do some, you know, real life stuff!
