21 Days Out


2011April 003

Yesterday was a super busy day.  I didn’t even have time to post.  Sorry about that.  Thursday was even crazier, so I won’t waste this whole post reliving that day except to say I ended the night with getting sprayed tanned by my neighbor.  I am getting some pictures taken today so I wanted a little color. I ate all the same stuff, got all my workouts in and collapsed into bed super early.

I’ve been getting up at 5:15-5:30a, but yesterday I slept until the alarm woke me up at 6:00am (slacker).  I had laundry to tend to and dishes (and Facebooking) so before I knew it was time to get outside and run. It was beautiful here yesterday.  The sun was out and it was warm.  My five miles felt so good and I came back and leashed up the girls and took them for their walk.

After working for a bit, it was time to kiss Justin goodbye for the day as he headed out to play golf.  I left soon after him to train with Diana.  After my back workout, we worked on posing.

2011April 001On my agenda for yesterday was to buy a new pair of jeans.  All my jeans are baggy and we were going out last night.  I am working so hard on my body and don’t want to walk around with a frumpy butt anymore!  I have been putting off buying any clothes, but jeans were a necessity.  I am happy to report that I purchased the smallest size I have ever purchased in my life, SIZE TWO! I actually did a little dance in the dressing room.  I checked the tags multiple times to make sure I was seeing the number correctly.  I wanted to buy like 80 pairs!  I ended up buying two pairs of jeans, a dress and three shirts.  Shopping sure is fun when you feel good about your size! (by the way, I was at The Loft)

When I started with Diana, in May of 2009, I wore a size 16 (even though I squeezed myself into my 14’s and said that was my size) and now I wear a TWO?!!!  *high five*

I wore the dress last night for our date.

After shopping, I headed to another store to pickup a wedding gift for a friend and then to the grocery store.  I still had two meals to eat before we left for out date night, so as soon as I got home, I started cooking brussel sprouts and a turkey burger. Then an hour later, I powered down some asparagus and egg whites.  Believe it or not, I was actually hungry for those egg whites and asparagus!

There weren’t any movies either of us were dying to see so we headed to our favorite wine place and I watched Justin do a wine tasting and we got caught up on the lives of two of our favorite people that work there.  We have really missed going there and visiting with everyone.  We used to go weekly for a tasting and maybe a glass (or bottle) of wine so we have gotten to know the people that work there and the couple that own it.  I’m looking forward to going back when the competition is over.

After the tasting, we called my Mom and Stepdad to see what they were up to and they were hanging out at Buffalo Wild Wings, having a beer and eating dinner (not what I expected my Mom to say when I called! ha!)!  We met them up there and visited over beer and water.

We ended the night with dinner.  We went to Trezo Mare since we had such a good experience there several weeks ago.  They actually fixed my food the way I asked (remember the salmon salad).  I forgot to take a picture last night, but I ate a small salad (dark greens, red onion, cucumbers, no dressing), tilapia (plain with lemon wedges on the side) and asparagus (plain).  It was yummy!

That was my Friday!  Hope everyone had a great day!  It is going to be another beautiful day here so I better get out there and start it off with an awesome run!

  2. Sounds like you've been a busy girl! I'm getting so excited for you--you are SO CLOSE!!! And you look fabulous! Before I even read about your shopping trip to LOFT, I immediately recognized your dress (I work at a LOFT). Major congrats on the size 2, and if you remind me, I will try to keep you posted about some LOFT sales from time to time :) I basically don't buy clothing from anywhere else--our discount (although amazing) is really bad for my bank account!

  3. Oh my gosh, Liz, The Loft is the ONLY place I buy clothes! I have seriously considered getting a part time job just to pay for more clothes! I am jealous of your job. :)

    Of course, yesterday was 30% sale and then today I get the email that there is a 40% sale! DOH!
