Mondays, Mondays, Mondays…

Posted on: January 20, 2015

It seems like Mondays are the hardest days…

Especially as a homeschooling mother of a teenager…

Today, I went very comfortable, cozy in polka dot leggings and layered tunic tops….

Flat riding boots finished off the comfy feel…

IMG_2662I added the pops of red, to boost my Monday mood..

Both the striped tunic and quilted vest are thrifted items..

The striped tunic wasn’t long enough to wear with leggings, so 

I added in an extra long t-shirt to make sure I had the proper derriere coverage necessary for leggings.. 

Besides wrangling a teenager to home-school, I spent the day planning out my new exercise and eating programs, as this lady is hell bent on getting back into shape.  I said before that I wanted to get to a healthy weight and a solid exercise routine to maintain before I reached 50, which happens in just 8 months… So time to get moving, as I’d like to be there long before Summer… I also went grocery shopping and picked up a few things to keep me on track…Tuna and celery to be exact, as another lunch option for the week… My goal is not only to lose the ten pounds I’ve gained back, but to lose a total of somewhere between 15 and 20 lbs.. I am going to gauge it by how my body feels as I get closer to those numbers… I tried the goal weight of 140 and it didn’t quite suit me , so going a little lower since that is the high end for my height.

Gratitude

Can I cheat and say I am grateful that this Monday is almost over?  

I am grateful for a beautiful seasonably warm and sunny day , which I thoroughly enjoyed on my walk to the store…

I am grateful for a trip to Goodwill on Sunday , in which I bought just two items pictured below..

I am grateful that I feel ready to face the weight and get this thing going… 

I am grateful that my smart son, thought to e-mail himself transcripts of his lesson and use his phone to write them, allowing me the computer to do my blog, so now I could care less how long he takes to do it!  

I am grateful for something to look forward to, tomorrow, with our first home-school parents night out.

This cute dress for Summer…

I loved the Chevron design and the soft colors…

I can’t resist another Loft skirt…

 especially in the ‘swingy’ style that provides the movement I adore

because it  makes me feel spunky and sassy…
