Thursday Style Section

Happy Almost Weekend!  I hope everyone is staying comfortably cool in this lovely humidity.  I’m tucked away in a corner at my “office” avoiding my stuffy apartment like the plague.  I’m continuing on my healthy crusade and haven’t felt this good in ages…literally.  I’ve gotten some great advice from a lot of close friends so I wanted to give them all a huge THANK YOU!  I have spent a lot of time reading and learning about healthy living (and writing about it here), but less time applying what I’ve learned to my daily life.  I believe that has to do with fear.  What if I work out regularly, eat for nourishment not from stress, and still remain the same?  I don’t think I’ve ever said that, or written it before.  Throughout all my meditation and positive thinking I’ve learned that repetition is key.  I need to do this EVERYDAY.  I won’t be perfect as no one is, but giving up after three days is ridiculous.  No one will see a major change in that amount of time.  I may not see any change for several weeks, but every small action will add up to something AMAZING. 

So I’ll continue my thirty minutes a day rule until Sunday and then come up with a new goal for the upcoming week.  I actually did 34 minutes on the elliptical last night because one of my favorite songs came on and I figured I might as well finish the song.  I’m looking for the small victories in each day and I know that I didn’t gain this weight overnight and I won’t lose it overnight, although a girl can dream, right?

Speaking of dreaming, my nightmare of the drunken slob have subsided!  I’m taking that as a sign that the Universe is happy with my choice to change my thinking…for good. 

Now onto the important stuff…dresses.  I would love m readers to send in any ideas of what I should wear to the wedding.  It is an outdoor ceremony at 7pm on a Saturday night.  I’m thinking under $350.  Bring on the fashionistas of the blog world.  The only color I don’t look good in is nude.  Have at it!
