Been on Hiatus

Sorry for the lack of content of late. I've been out of work for while due to illness, and while I might have been able to handle an hour at the gym here and there, it is definitely prudent to lay low.

On the upside, I've been trying hard to eat healthfully while out of work, and I've done a lot around the house. I've either lost weight or redistributed it, because I no longer struggle with fresh-out-of-the-dryer jeans - they fit just fine.

Did I Really Do That?

I am quite irreversably NOT a morning person. Though I'm generally not grumpy, per se, I'm pretty much a sloth for the first hour or so after waking up.

However, this week, I got up at 6AM (2 hours earlier than normal) to go to the gym - three days in a row! HUGE deal for me.

I took yesterday off because I wasn't feeling well, and I'm giving myself Fridays off in the hope that I'll stay awake past midnight, but seriously? 6AM? Three days in a row?


Now, if only the scale would come back soon - it can't take too long to recalibrate, right?

Let's try this again, shall we?

There is absolutely no reason for a grown woman to allow herself to be 400 pounds without a good reason. And I don't know of a good reason.

Today, I weighed in at 402.4 pounds.

Today, I did half an hour on the treadmill at 2.2 MPH.

Today, I take my life back.

My Review of Only Necessities (R) trapeze tunic


Only Necessities (R) trapeze tunic

See-through in lighter colors

2 5

Sizing: Feels true to size

Pros: Attractive Design, Lightweight, Comfortable, Flattering

Best Uses: Casual Wear

Describe Yourself: Comfort-oriented, Practical, Stylish

When I tried this tunic on, I was immediately reminded of why I don't purchase tops in light colors, especially through this company. I ordered the tunic in Sundance, and despite wearing a skin-tone bra, I could still see my bra through it, which also meant that of course I could clearly see my dark-colored jeans through it. I've also uploaded a picture of how you can see the printed tag through it. I liked the fit and the drape, but since I already have other tops in blue, red and black, I'm undecided as to whether I will try to dye it (not an easy feat with it being partially polyester), give it away, or pay the shipping to exchange it for a darker color. I would only recommend this top in red, blue or black, unless you plan on wearing another top just as long underneath.
