*Although I haven't gained weight this holiday season, I haven't lost as much as I would have liked. I haven't weighed myself but judging by how my clothes fit, I think I've probably lost about 3 pounds. Within the coming days I plan on being more mindful about what I shove in my face. More fruits and veggies, less candy and baked goods. I also plan on cutting back on my coffee a bit. Right now I drink close to two pots a day and I can only imagine what it's doing to my insides. Even my afternoon beer has been replaced with a small glass of POM.
*Along that line, Jay and I are giving up cheese for the entire month of January. I'm not thrilled about this but I do feel it needs to be done. He and I have gotten way too used to adding cheese to everything, because really everything is better with cheese.
*I have plenty of reading to do.I'm almost done with The Lovely Bones at which point it will be passed on to Dawn so that she can have it read in time for the Open Discussion in February. I am almost giddy about starting next years reading goal.
*Finally, I want to discuss something of a personal nature with all of you: Have bra designers just completely lost their minds?!? I had to go bra shopping the other day. And yes I do mean HAD TO. I only had a few bras left and they could truly only be considered "bras" in the loosest sense of the word. Literally, my nipple hung out of one. Nice, huh?
Bra shopping has never been my favorite thing because I can't find anything that is understated and pretty, yet supportive. So I hadn't bought a new bra in a long time, maybe two years. When I went into the store on Saturday I was shocked at what I was met with. Everything is either dowdy and ugly, or made with the sole purpose of arousing a lover. And the padding is completely OUT.OF.CONTROL! Without looking at the size, you can't tell a B cup from a D cup because they all look as if they have double D's in them already. Also, I don't need bows all over the place or intricate bead work. I just want a bra that can do its job and still be attractive. It would also be a plus if it didn't cost $50.
In the end, I came home with nothing. I did buy eight bras online from a store I don't normally shop from because I think it's overpriced. I can guarantee at least four will be returned. Does anyone else have bra shopping issues? It can't be just me.
