May 20

The Good: I had one of those WOW feelings today. Shawn and I went to Main Street Cafe this evening to celebrate him making a 94 on his Law Enforcement Academy test! Woo Hoo! I am a VERY proud wife. :) When we finished eating, we decided to head over to my parents house to see them. I have been wanting to get over there all week to finish getting the clothes I had left in my closet that I didn't take 2 months ago because they were too small for me to wear. I wanted to see how close I was to getting into them again. One of my favorite things to wear in high school and early college was Polo button up shirts. I loved the preppy and classic look of them and still do. I have been wanting to get back into them for YEARS. While I was pulling out a few dresses that I knew I could fit in now, I thought to myself, maybe I should try one on just to see how close I am to wearing them again. To my surprise...it fit! Not only did it fit but I put it on top of the other shirt I was wearing so I knew for sure it would fit! I ran downstairs to tell my mom and Shawn and had tears in my eyes. It certainly was one of those moments that made me realize how far I have come and how hard I have worked in the last 5 months to lose this weight. Needless to say, I now have my 6 favorite Polo shirts in my closet...be on the lookout, you might see me wearing them around town. :)

The Bad: I did not get a workout in today but I felt like I could pass today and not feel too bad because I went on a field trip to the zoo with my class today and did a decent amount of walking and two, Shawn was coming home from the police academy and I couldn't WAIT to see him. We have an extremely busy day tomorrow so I am not sure if I will be able to get a formal workout in but I might try a few things at home that I saw some of the trainers doing at Gold's yesterday. I try to watch them as they work with their clients to see what they do since they are the fitness professionals.

The Ugly: Shawn and I had a celebration piece of our favorite cake at Main Street Cafe. It was soooo good but I certainly didn't need the extra calories since I didn't get a workout in today. Oh well....will try to work it off tomorrow. :)
