Shall we revel in the hilarity of vanity sizing for a minute. I often talk about this with friends. We’ve come to the consensus that we don’t care what number is on the tag; if only sizes remained constant throughout stores. Let’s take this weekend for example. Now, I’ve lost some weight, yes, but I’m no skinny mini. But this weekend I decided it was time to buy a pair of jeans that fit, because the baggy-ass look was getting kind of old. I stopped at Old Navy, because I figure I’ll get a starter pair of cheaper jeans and see how things go from there. What size did I walk out with? A size six. Let’s be realistic here people. I ain’t a size six. It’s flattering, really it is, but it’s not real. If I were a less ‘honest with myself’ kind of person this could be devestating. Let’s say I bought this pair of size six pants, declared myself a six and then proceeded to only try on six’s from now on. Muffin tops galore, oh the poor fashion choices I could make. . .
The meeting of the boy and the BFF went down. It went well. Whew, huge relief. My friends opinions are extremely important to me. Glad that’s done with. I’m such a weenie about these things.
Dinner/Lunch for the week
I made a spinach lasagna combining a 15oz container of 1% cottage cheese, 1 egg, a package of button mushrooms, one onion, a 2 lb bag of frozen chopped spinach, organic tomato sauce, half a bag of part-skim mozzarella and lasagna noodles (white not whole wheat-it’s what I had in the house). It came out really well, and I’m not a lasagna lover, but this was very good and you couldn’t tell the difference between the cottage cheese and ricotta at all, although I did blend the cottage cheese and egg together with my hand blender to make it a smoother consistency.
Exercise: It’s a scorcher again today. I plan on hitting up the gym a spin class, but I’m seriously hoping the gym is adequately air conditioned, it hasn’t always been the case. Just in case I’m going to drink even more water than I normally do (which is a lot) today.
I did hit up that spin class this evening and it was adequately air-conditioned. I guess I’m not going to have any excuses this summer.
