Day 130 – Lazy Saturday

Today was a very relaxing day for me. I slept a good portion of the morning and into the afternoon, as I did not have anything to do. It was gloomy and cloudy until about 2:00 p.m. so I didn’t feel as guilty as if it were sunny and 80 degrees out. 🙂 Once I finally got out of bed and up and going, I hit the gym hardcore. Ran 1 mile to the gym, did the stairmaster for 45 minutes, back and biceps for nearly an hour, elliptical for 20 minutes and ran back home. I think I worked out close to 2.5 hours and burned 950 calories. Damn. That was to make up for my overeating yesterday. Tehehe.

Since I’ll be moving in a few weeks, I started going through all of my clothes – swapping winter out for summer, trying things on, etc. I have to say – it’s very motivating that half of my clothes don’t fit and make me look like a homeless person. On the other hand, it is going to cost so much money to buy an entirely new wardrobe. Ha! I held onto some transitional pieces that still work for me for the time being. Here in a few months, they probably won’t fit anymore and I will have to part with them too. Boo.

One big motivator was this. I put on a swimsuit that did not flatter me at all last year. It was a cheap swimsuit that I bought one weekend back home in St. Louis when I wanted to get in the hot tub but didn’t bring my swimsuit from up here in Chicago. Well, I put it on today to see if I wanted to keep it or not..and dang, I felt pretty good in it. I took a picture (see below) and figured I’d post it on here for two reasons:

1. I didn’t post a comparison picture on here for the month of April because I hadn’t been losing so I figured I’d show a picture of how I look as of today.
2. I want to use this as even more motivation to stick with it and not slip up again…especially since summer is literally in our backyard!
