Well, some good things are happening.
First, I got my glass of wine! Well, a bottle rather. My birthday was lovely and my boyfriend and I spent a great evening dining at Frida Bistro, one of my favorite restaurants in the city. I purchased a Chilean wine for the occasion, and it was perfect. Root:1 is a wine that I hadn’t tried before, and it was one of the better wines in its price range that I have had in a long time. We had the Cabernet and it was rich, but also super mellow with hints of dark chocolate–the tannins are also very subtle. It was almost velvety. And, at about $12 a bottle, it is super affordable.
Second, a major weight loss goal has been reached! I am not talking about numbers here people (weigh in is Sunday)….I am talking about clothing. I had this sleek black pencil skirt that I haven’t been able to fit into for a while now. I actually tried to fit into it the last week in December when I got a little teary-eyed that I could get the zipper more than half way up. I folded the skirt up and left it on my dryer as a reminder of where I wanted to be. This past birthday weekend, I zipped that baby up with no problem and may or may not have jumped around the house a little bit with a big grin on my face. Ok, let’s be honest, I totally did. In fact, today, I am wearing the skirt at work, feeling great. It is amazing how good hard work feels in the end. And, while I am not to my end goal in numbers (yet)–I have a tropical Key West vacation ahead of me to look great for–so, my motivation is amped up! Bikini season, here I come.
Anyway, have to share success right?
This weekend I am doing a review of Maxwell’s downtown! Hoping it is a good one.
