Yesterday was so busy. We had an airplane crisis and I had to work late to prepare a presentation I had to give to leadership this morning. I came into work yesterday and was hit right away. I went to my first meeting of the day to try and gather information on the situation. In one of the meetings someone brought in coffee and muffins. I resisted the muffins, but I confess I poured myself a cup of coffee. I didn’t have cream or sugar; I just wanted to taste it. In all the chaos, I spilled my coffee all over myself, the conference room table and my paperwork. There is no way to describe in words how embarrassed I was. I was wearing a light colored pant suit and it was everywhere. After cleaning up, I went to the restroom to see if there was any way to salvage my outfit…nope. I was a mess. It was 7:30 in the morning and the mall wasn’t open yet. The only place close to Boeing that I could think of to find something to wear was Wal-Mart . I jumped in my car and off I went. I am not sure if it was the sizing of the clothes at Wal-Mart or what, but I had a really difficult time finding pants that would fit me. On a side note…did you know Lee and Vidal Sassoon are still in production? I had no idea!
My body is changing. My normal size was too big, but a size smaller was still too tight causing a little muffin top. I settled on a dark pair of Lee jeans…with a high waist and tapered leg (The horrible mommy jeans are still being made and sold). I had to buy a new blouse since my jacket did not match the jeans I was buying. I found a very purple poly-cotton blend button up and spruced up the outfit with some plastic jewelry. On the plus side, the entire outfit only cost $34.00, but I looked ridiculous!
The rest of my day was more of the same.
The moral of the story: DON’T CHEAT- pass on the coffee! The fitness god’s will punish you and you’ll end of wearing tapered leg jeans as your punishment!
Breakfast: Detox shake
Lunch: Leftover Beef Soup
Snack: almonds and a date bar
Dinner: bag of carrots, apple and another bag of almonds. I was grazing at this point.
Dessert: Strawberry banana shake with coconut ice cream. I was too tired to make anything else when I got home.
