I had decided I was going to stop doing motivational dresses because of my breasts. Yep. The odds of me ever having a 38" chest are next to nothing. Right now I'm an F cup, and even though I imagine that changing, I really don't want it to change that much. I really like my breasts. My lovers really like my breasts. End of story.
And then I was remembered: that is what foundation garments are for.
So, today's motivational dress is a 1950s party dress coming from the Etsy shop The Vintage Studio.
The measurements are as follows:
Bodice length: 15"
Dress length: 40"
It is, needless to say, small. Though maybe I don't really know what I'm talking about? I just looked at a size chart on Banana Republic and that is a size 6 dress. That doesn't seem that absurd. I mean, 19 sizes away, yes. But absurd? no?
So, yesterday was a good day, and I've been toying with rejoining the gym I used to be be in -- it had closed but reopened as an independent spot, and the membership is only 35 a month; even if I only went on the days when I'm not commuting it would be a pretty good deal. I'm moving in August. Can I commit to a gym through then? After that, I'll use the campus gym wherever I land. I've done that a couple times at my school now, but are all the group classes are when I'm teaching or in seminar. I mean, that is the thing I don't like about this gym -- it doesn't have classes, it is just a circuit.
Really? I miss Jazzercise.
I did find a yoga studio (just now, actually) that has affordable student rates, and I do have my handy dandy student ID, so I might check out their zumba class this afternoon. Honestly, though, I didn't go to community yoga last night because I was afraid I wouldn't be able to keep up, so it seems unreasonable to assume I'll go to zumba tonight. I think I need something at more my own pace for a little while. At least until I'm back in the swing of things. Which I guess means I'm joining the gym again.
Regardless, I have strength training today, and should go eat some breakfast before I decide how I'm going to approach that!
