Permission to Rest

I haven't written a blog post in a week!  How is that possible? But I've been thinking about my blog every day. Thinking I can't wait to get back to my keyboard. I want to write something...it's been too long...But, after work functions and the need for sleep over ruled my desire.

I had to give myself permission to rest. My doctor(s) give me a very hard time about my sleep habits. They tell me that my sleep habits MAY be contributing to my {very minor} health issues. I am "healthy", don't get me wrong. I have great blood pressure, my cholesterol numbers were as good as ever, etc. Only real health complaints are: Asthma (we are getting this better controlled) and fatigue. Oh, and weight.

I just hate always thinking about weight. I had been a Jenny member for two years (or longer). I lost weight and plateaued. But (same old story) as soon as I decided to eat "real" food, my weight crept back up.
This could very well be because my definition of "real" food isn't a nutritionist's definition of real food.

I did do something that has helped me feel good about myself. I broke down and bought new clothes. Yes, they are a size larger than what I had been...in fact my body returned to a previous size. But the clothes are flattering. The dress I'm wearing above and to the right are one of my favorite new pieces.

I purchased a few things that I need to take back. They didn't fit the "perfect" bill. I've been meaning to get back to the store with these pieces for over a week. Somehow the idea of taking back is not as appealing as bringing home.

  4. That dress is so cute!! It looks lovely against your blond hair. I think we all deserve new clothes once in a while. Nothing can make you feel better than a great new dress or sweater or pants that make you feel comfortable and confident.

    Enjoy the rest of your summer :)

    And really, what is size anyway? My size is all over the place - and that's all within one store!
