Retail Therapy

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

My weight has been up and down the past few days. I didn't want to jinx it by worrying about whether I was entering a long stall, but after dipping down to 156.8 one glorious morning, I got right back up into 157-158 territory for a while there.

So this morning my scale surprised me to the point where I blinked twice, stepped off the scale, and stepped back on it again.

This morning it said 155.8.

The default weight on some of the cardio equipment I use at the gym is 155. Maybe by the end of the week I won't have to worry about changing it for a while.

Of course I will always have to change the age. It's been a few years since I was 35, and every year the number just keeps going up. Funny how that is. This is my birthday month so I am thinking about it a little more these days.

I have a tendency to dwell on things and then say, "But I won't dwell on it." What that really means is that I will stop writing about it, but I might continue to think about it for a while.

Yesterday when I stopped in at Costco to buy the BOSU ball, I had a look around while I was there. It's hard to leave Costco with only the thing you came for. So, I bought some makeup and some fancy shampoo (see above about dwelling on my age -- so I "need" these new products to magically erase the effects of time, haha!) Well, and I also picked up a new dress, on spec. I figured the size M ought to fit. And when I got it home and tried it on, it did! Yay!

Yeah, call it retail therapy. This is why I hardly ever go to Costco by myself. It's not a good place to let me roam the aisles unsupervised.
