|Excuse the terrible picture, I was trying to show size.|
These things might the best packaged good-for-me food I've encountered. I was at Costco on Sunday and on a whim got a giant box of 36 of these babies. I was not disappointed!
Mine are the Chocolate Fudge brownies. They also come in Chocolate Peanut Butter. *drool*
5g of fiber (that's 20% of your daily recommended value), 90 calories, and a measly 2 WW Points+. Delicious.
Also on my trip to Costco, I carried a 40 lb bag of cat litter through the store. Carried, without the aid of a cart. I figured, I used to carry that much extra weight around every day of my life, what's 2 minutes? A good illustration of what I've accomplished. I was sweating a little by the time I got to the front. If you haven't done this experiment with a bag of potatoes at the grocery store, or dog food, or whatever heavy item equates to your personal weight loss, I highly recommend it!
Another small milestone: I've graduated to wearing medium unisex/men's t-shirts again! I've been wearing L or XL for a few years, but this week I've been pulling shirts from the back of my closet that I used to wear in high school! My wearable t-shirt collection has grown. :)
|Insane smile...can you|
tell I was really excited?
I also discovered I can squeeze into the sparkly dress I wore in my junior and senior years as a member of my high school women's showchoir. It's tight across the bust right now, where as back in the day the whole thing was always a little big on me because they cut it a size or two too large and had to tailor it down. I have 2 other sparklies that are smaller, so I'll keep using showchoir dresses as an indication of my progress. Ultimately I'd love to be able to get into the one that I wore during my sophomore year!
Last thing for today: I finally got new running shoes! I've been wearing a pair of Brooks' Ghost 2 for well over a year. The treads are worn down and I've noticed my arches cramping during Zumba. I have a big problem with underpronation, which is when most of your weight falls on the outside of your foot when you walk/run. I had the painful beginnings of plantar fasciitis before I bought my first pair of Brooks', and once I started wearing them it cleared up almost immediately. So rather than trying on endless styles I stuck with what I know works for me and ordered a pair of Ghost 3 from Zappos.com. Helpful tip: If you have tried on shoes/been fitted for running shoes and know what you need, Zappo's often has last year's models on sale, unlike your local sporting goods store. I got them $20 cheaper because Zappo's already has the Ghost 4 in stock.
I'll leave you this evening with a picture of my new pretties!
