Snow Days and Shopping
I pulled on my hat, coat, gloves, ski socks and pink-polka dotted Wellies and went out and about. I just got back from a walking/shopping trip to the FINAL CLEARANCE rack at Marshall's. Total damage? 34 dollars and some change. The haul? One boyfriend blazer (black with a purple paisley lining), two pairs of work appropriate pants, one white button-down shirt, one flouncy long skirt (FOR A DOLLAR!), a vest for layering and a very springy, flowy, dressy blouse.
Now to wash the clothes I already own! Laundry, here I come.
It's still snowing here like crazy! It's been a long time since there's been this mu ch snow in this part of Texas. I think we'll see a foot or more before this is all said and done. The scary part is that all this moisture is gonna freeze tonight. Slicker than goose poop around here tomorrow. I will want a snow day tomorrow when it will actually be treacherous.
Food today is on track. Because of my binge/compulsive eating history, I do not try to restrict how much I eat. I tell myself that I can eat as much of some foods as I would like - if I get restrictive, I get crazy. It's only the kinds of foods that I restrict, not the quantity. And truly, who really goes overboard on broccoli? And if I don't want broccoli or grilled chicken breast then I'm not really hungry. It's just a little mind trick that I have to play on myself from time to time to get/keep myself on track.
