Operation Bridesmaid: Zip the Dress Day 1.5

So how am I doing 36 hours after kicking off Operation Zip the Dress? Well it's tough. Yesterday was good. I ran 8 miles, watched some Olympics, and mowed my yard. I ate right and had a knock down drag out with a sugar craving. Today so far has been good too. I'm busy, which always helps. BUT the hard part is my stupid candy basket at work....it sits an arm's length away, staring at me.

The Candy Basket
I'd like to not have it but sometimes, in my profession, you need something to help connect with the kids. So it stays and I work on my will power-hourly

Thanks for all the encouragement from yesterday's post. And just for those of you who may need some proof that indeed, 3 months ago I fit into a size 6, and today I do not,  here is the photo proof:

It zipped!
One word: UGH.

Tonight I'll hit the neighbor(ing)hood for a run followed by jumping rope and KB swings, followed by a delicious, healthy dinner....And the challenge continues.

  5. Best of luck!!!! I know you will get this done!!! I myself have a dress I bought that I want to wear for my bday in September. It's fits but a little snug so my plan had been to eat better, but I haven't so I think it's time I put it somewhere that I can see it everyday as a reminder!

    1. HA! When i was trying on the dress and texted it to Jessica she said the same thing, where's your smile! I told her, "Don't send a soon-to-be-divorced 33 year old to David's Bridal.....Disastrous." There was no smile with all the girls chatting about weddings and crud and telling me, "Next is you!" HA riiiight! =)
