It was really hard to update you with weight gain. I've been careful about what I've been eating, and mostly regular with the gym. I caused a minor injury of my Achilles tendon on the left foot, and the back of my ankle has a small swelling. I know, I shouldn't be in heels. So I've been doing light on the cardio, and focusing on upper body weights. I think part of the weight gain is muscle, and part of it was related to the couple of meals we ate out. There you go. Keepin' it real. Ouch.
We didn't get these photos until evening, and makeup was a little melted from the warm day, and the little camera really isn't up to the challenge. (But never fear, Sarah took FABULOUS, clear pics for my Day 24 post!) I do like wearing 1950s daywear for evening reasons - it's still so much dressier than everyone else around, but doesn't stand out the way, say, a sequined party dress does. Too bad you can't see my hair. It was awesome.
It's hard to see my hair, especially with that distracting cheesy wink. I didn't know it looked so silly!
Sometimes, a random shoe company makes cute shoes. But I abhor toe cleavage, so I always wear the low vamp styles with nude fishnets.
Okay, this whole outfit was really about the Bakelite. Why? I'm trying to use it to talk myself out of going and getting a toffee chocolate caramel ice cream (or similar.) The Bakelite is just as yummy, without the calories. These balmy evenings have made the cravings go CRAZY. I believe in having some indulgence, but I'm waiting to hit the 5lbs of weight loss mark.
