I achieved a new goal at the gym today! During BodyPump, I did ALL of my push ups on my TOES! This is a HUGE accomplishment for me, as I have always been a push-up-on-the-knees kinda gal. I felt so strong with such a great sense of accomplishment! Who knows what’s next for me?!? haha
After BodyPump, I showered up (at the gym for the first time – an interesting experience, but I’d do it again if needed) and headed over to the mall on this glorious day. Seriously, it’s beautiful out today! 8) I had a feeling I might get a few tummy grumbles shortly after the gym, so I packed up one of my fave Clif Z Bars. Yep, it was thoroughly enjoyed in the dressing room.
Old Navy totally rocked today — I had such a hard time choosing what to get. After making some tough decisions, I ended up with these new goodies:
Purple & White striped dress – *I REALLY want to figure out a way to make some pockets in this dress — does anyone have any idea how I could do it???
Black & Grey striped tank vest (looks a whole lot better on a body than a hanger!)
Pretty tanks in purple & melon (some people are weird about buying more than 1 of the same shirt – I say, if it fits, gimme ‘em all!)
And of course, I had to stock up on the flip flops – who doesn’t love a pair of flip flops for $2.50 each?!?
Basic black, white, & grey
The best thing was, Old Navy is having 30% off the entire store through today only, either in store or online. If ordering online, just enter ONBIG30 at checkout! All of this only came to about $55.00, and since I had a $25.00 gift card, this girl only spent about $30.00! Now that’s my kinda shopping!
After my victory buy at Old Navy, I continued to browse around a few other stores, but kept myself from pulling out the wallet – except for one thing…
I treated myself to dessert before lunch with a delicious Caramel Light Frapuccino. These babies are frozen heaven through a straw! Knowing I still hadn’t eaten lunch, I kept portion control in mind by ordering a “tall”. It totally did the trick.
Unfortunately, I think it may have spoiled a little of my appetite, because by the time I got home, I really wasn’t all that hungry for a big lunch. But no worries, I’ll break things into 2 mini meals this afternoon:
I had no idea that my hommus was pretty much GONE – I had to scrape the entire container down just to get this sorry looking blob. Good thing I’m hittin’ up the grocery store later!
*Here’s another reminder for this week’s Fashion Friday – Readers Edition post!
Question for the Afternoon:
What’s the best achievement that you’ve made (or goal that you’ve reached) with your workouts lately?
