looking forward to it

February 3, 2009

it’s snowing today but this weekend is supposed to be ah-mazing. really, sun shiny and FIFTY degrees. it’s a bit sad that this california girl is getting excited about 50 degree weather…but i am! *happy dance!*

another thing i’m happy about! i stepped on the scale this morning and saw 131.8! my weight fluctuates a LOT but i’ve been maintaining my lower range for a while. so seeing weight loss from a personal “low” number without obsessing and calorie counting is a nice surprise. balance and moderation– glad to see it’s working!

there’s another aspect of my life where i need to exercise some serious moderation…my shopping! to be fair to myself i’ve been spending WAY less money, but i’m also working a lot less than i was before…so i need to cut back more. i WILL NOT buy ANY clothes for the month of february. in fact i may return a couple of the cardigans i bought as well! there IS an ulterior motive to this though because in march i have two reasons to splurge.

first, the mac kitty kouture collection will be available in stores! the regular (non-blinged out) collection will be available next week but i am not giving in to my need for instant gratification! second, there’s a shecky’s girls night out at the beginning of march and i am in LOVE with one of the designers that will be there. hopefully i can splurge on some pretty dresses–*maybe* in a smaller dress size ? 🙂 a girl can hope!

ahh hello kitty and crystals and make up. has my name written all over it!

okay, back to food! i wasn’t in the mood for breakfast but i’m trying not to skip meals so this is what i came up with…

indian spiced chai with caramel apple creamer (hello, genius!) plus an orange and some vanilla trail mix from the wf bulk bin. i ate about half the trail mix…i kinda over sugared myself. i’ll probably finish it tonight because my chocolate cravings usually come out at night.

there’s no tea in my mug because i took it during ten minutes i waited for the water to boil. turns out i’m supposed to press a button on the electric kettle for it to actually heat…who knew!

    I am such a sucker for all the flavored coffee mates! They don’t have them in England so I’ve had to give them up 😦 I bet that flavor is amaaaaazing!

    Aw, thanks…there are other perks to being in England..like Cadbury’s chocolate! 🙂
