I’ve got to admit that I’ve gained some weight in the last couple of months.  Somewhere around 5-8lbs, which is enough to make my pants feel a bit snugger, but not so much that it feels like an insurmountable journey back to my life without muffin top.  I really try to accept that there’s an ebb and flow in owning a body.  But, heck, it still really sucks.  I’ve been hitting the gym in renewed vigor and really trying to up the fruit and veggie quotient each day.  It’s slow though, especially since I discovered chocolate covered pretzels from Trader Joe’s. So there you have it, I figured since I write this blog about eating and finding a comfortable norm with my body, I should admit that I’m feeling a bit off about mine lately.

That having been said; I went window and real shopping today.  I love all the adorable boutiques in my neighborhood, but I’m pretty sure never in life, no matter how much money I could possibly have at my disposal would I ever spend $450 for a dress, that’s just a everyday kind of dress.  So, I hit up Mandee, which I probably haven’t shopped at since 8th grade (which would have been 1996) and bought a cute lil top, a cardigan (’cause I’m all about the cardigan), and some leggings.  Yay cheap clothes as opposed to ridiculously expensive clothes.
