Bathing Suits, What I Ate and a Secret

Thursday, June 5, 2008

School is out in 5 days and I know I'll be spending lots of time at our pool (free entertainment!) I thought I should get one more suit so I'm not always washing the one already have. So, I went bathing suit shopping Tuesday.

It was awful. Horrible. Demoralizing. I tried on 8 suits at Marshall's and hated them all. If I could wear this I'd have no problems:

But alas, this body ain't a bikini body. My quest for something like this continues:

I did not, however, come home empty handed:

Ahhhh! Isn't it fabulous? I love, love, love it. Only $20! I've been looking for a purple jewelry box for the longest time. Shhh, don't tell my husband. It's in the trunk of my car for now.

And here's what I ate Tuesday and yesterday:

4 grapes
Half a cantaloupe
My smoothie
1 bottled water with Crystal Light To Go fruit punch flavor
8 Sprees
Chicken nuggets
French fries
Baked beans
12-15 gummi bears (I lost count, Weeds is such a great show!)

Half a cantaloupe
Half a multi grain bagel, toasted with peanut butter
1 mug Chai tea latte
2 bowls of homemade chili over spaghetti, sprinkle of cheddar and 4 crackers
1 mug Tazo Apple tea
1/4 cup chocolate caramel trail mix

  1. i think we're neighbors? or do we already know each other? i love that bikini, btw. not that i'd, like, where it, or anything.

  2. I LOVE that tank suit. Super cute.

    And hello girl? EAT something would ya?

  3. P.S. Wanna hang out at the pool together? We'll be neighbors in two weeks.

  4. Katy- I'm in the coastal north, are you?

    Jamie- Supposedly that tank suit is a WalMart, but I have yet to see anything that cute when I go. Check your email, I sent my cell #. LOL! Eating is definitely NOT a problem.

  5. That tankini is ADORABLE!!! Love it!

    I SO need to go on a diet but I just keep putting it off. When the time comes to get into my swimsuit I'm gonna be kicking myself for not starting sooner. :(

  6. Jen- Isn't it? Like I said, I have yet to see something so cute when I'M at Wal Mart. I'm going teacher gift shopping today so maybe I'll get lucky somewhere. Diet with me! We can be each other's support group. ;^)

  7. I will not get into a bathing suit at all. I'm way too self conscious. I have hanging butt cheek issues. And no suit contains the butt.

    Also, I love Chai you suppose it's fattening. I have one almost every day.


  8. Deb-
    I don't know what kind you drink, but I ca say that mine is definitely not the healthiest! It's a mix by Big Train, just add water. I won't even look at the nutrition label!

  9. Ah, you got a cute jewelry box! After trying on swimsuits, which is about the worst possible experience, you deserved it!
