wedding: kiss close-up

Week 3, Day 1

I weighed in this morning. I wasn't feeling well yesterday, so I stayed home from work (which is where my scale resides). I am pretty happy to have maintained, honestly. This was not my best week, but I am turning it around today. Already doing well and I am excited to keep it up and stay on program. I also changed one of my goal rewards - I think I will tack the extra $100 onto my goal clothes only if I win Fantasy Football. But we'll see how much extra I have around that time because...

I signed up for the half marathon. :x EXCITED and also a little intimidated. I haven't even attempted a 10K yet and can barely run a 5K at the moment, so I know I have a long way to go before I am ready to run it. Luckily I have six months to train, so I am pretty pumped. I chose Tiana as my favorite princess. I KNOW I KNOW, NOT BELLE, but I feel like I can relate more to Tiana's character, especially in this situation. Part of it is surface-level (New Orleans FTW), but mainly it's because she is focused on hard work and not compromising her goals for anyone...she is extremely determined, independent, and ambitious, and I think that is something great to keep in mind for this race and also she has a brown prince like me. I love Belle too, but honestly it is mostly surface-level. Aside from the reading part. ♥ /DisneyPrincessNerd

I bought this dress to wear to Yurani's wedding in December (assuming it isn't ridiculously short on me).

There is a catch, though...I bought it in a Small. Based on the measurements, the Medium would probably fit me right now, albeit maybe a little snugly. But I know if I stay OP and stick to my half-marathon workout plan (which I am going to draft up in a few minutes), it will fit by December and look amazing. So I am pretty stoked to hang it up as a reminder. I am going to try it on when it comes in, just for the lols/to gauge the progress I need to make to make it a reality. I will report back. xD

So yeah, my new wardrobe will probably consist of a lot of dresses. I feel like I am starting to move past the jeans and t-shirts and stuff, so it's exciting. I mean, really, it's about time. I'm 25 so I should probably start dressing more like it. Luckily I really like dresses - need to buy some more when the time comes. I just don't ever want to get to the point where I am wearing soccer-mom clothes. If that day ever comes, I give anyone and everyone permission to spray me down with a hose and drag me to the mall.

What else...oh, I started my Fall Challenge over at ww_users. I have been holding these seasonal challenges for maybe two years now? They are really fun to manage. People get really motivated, and it's awesome to be a part of that atmosphere.

I will end with some thinspiration. Hope everyone is having a great week!
