I want to live the dream!

It's amazing how taking 2 days off running (or any physical exercise whatsoever) does to my psyche. The picture to the right left is from Victoria's Secret. I want this. Badly. But the problem is if I even tried to wear this right now, I'd look like a beached whale.

Well, maybe that's an exaggeration. But still, it wouldn't look very nice. A bit jiggly, to be honest. But I want to live the dream. I want to be able to wear this. So what am I going to do about it? I think I'm going to order it & hang it where I can see it. Every. Single. Day. Just as a reminder to do my run!

Tomorrow is my first official "weigh in" on the new eating plan. I'm a bit afraid, but I've been very faithful to the plan. Except for Sunday, when the recipe we tried went badly. And even then, I didn't eat badly, just not as planned. So we shall see about my progress towards "the dream" tomorrow.


  1. That is a beautiful suit! I too would love to wear something like that.

    I have plenty of clothes in my hope chest to motivate me but they are all packed away. I guess I should make them more visible huh?

    I know that the weight loss will come. I try not to obsess over every little pound because that will never help. Keep on going! We can do it!

  2. The thing for me is to stay focused on eating properly. Good fuel for the machine. I don't count calories at all; that's always been detrimental to my progress. I'm focusing on that protein/carb combo ... & I'll be able to see if there's any progress tomorrow.
