Once again, another quick post as I rush off to do something.  Who has two thumbs and needs to get organized?  This girl!

Unlike last week, we're finally moving in the right direction. Woohoo!  I think the exercise is having an impact, even though it makes me whine and complain.  The regime, in short, is 10 minutes of intense cardio followed by 30-40 minutes of focused work on one body part followed by another 10 of cardio and stretching.  I may be shorting the stretching bit a little, come to think of it.



In just a few days I'll be jetting off on vacation again... I know, I know, how I suffer.  I don't know that there will be any posts while I'm gone, but I'll post everything once I get back for sure!  Since we're going to the beach, I decided it was finally time to replace the swimsuit I've had since 6th grade, and after searching high and low for a one-piece swimsuit, with straps, for less than $50 (whoda thunk it'd be so hard?) I settled on a $20 on-sale one from Lands' End plus the $10 two-day shipping.  I got it yesterday, and it's fabulous!  Although... can we talk vanity sizing for a second?  I ordered a size 4.  Yeah. FOUR.  I also bought a not-very-old dress recently (80s or 90s) in a size 12.  Both fit.  What is up with that??


Also for the beach, although I know it's usually not very warm there, I bought myself two new pairs of shorts.  Both are high-waisted with button detailing, and I think I like them... the green pair are made of something like sweatpants or exercise clothes, and are terribly comfy, if prone to panty lines.  One more thing to think about when I get dressed....   I'll show you the other pair later, they were white denim, but I'm dyeing them for the classic navy look and less transparency.

And did I mention I love these shoes?

So, here are the specs on today's outfit.  I mostly spent the day exercising and cooking, so combined with the miserable heat that made for a pretty plain look.
