Need New Things and A Possibly Ludicrous Goal

8 Jan

Although I am all about saving in 2012 I do need some new things, specifically wardrobe things. I desperately need a new pair of boots. My current pair is 4 years old and is starting to look worn, but not in a cutesy vintage way. The look is definitely more in the falling apart category. There’s a ton of cute boots out there, but I have one major complaint; the calf part is almost always too big (except for the priciest designer boots). My calves are smaller than average and most ‘fitted’ leather boots end up looking like rain boots. This is not the look I’m going for.

Anyways, the boot quest continues.

I also want to find some more cute silky type tops. I have a few from Banana Republic that I’m wearing all the time now. It’s such an easy way to dress up jeans and is just as comfy as a T-shirt.

Oh and other news? I signed up to do a weight loss thing at work (for prizes of course). I gained a few lbs over the holidays so it would be nice to have something tangible to work towards through exercise and eating right vs. my usual regiment of not working out then randomly losing weight during a stressful week. My end goal for April is a loss of 4 lbs. However, I’m starting to wonder, if I work out a ton will the muscle weight counter this out? Perhaps I’m aiming too high, but doing anything less felt kinda lame (that’s right folks my big goal is 1 lb!!! *eye rolls from all*). Anyone who meets their goal gets a pretty generously sized gift card and of course other freebies. First weigh in is tomorrow and I’m also doing a breakfast buffet, how convenient. Maybe I’ll wear some extra jewelry or wool clothing too 😉 Game on!
