Louis Armani? Coach Who? Dolce and Hardy? What?

Suh-weet! This no sugar thing is working! Between eating right and my workouts, I can feel such a difference so I weighed this morning (even though it’s not Sunday) and I was excited to see that I am down another 3 pounds! I am almost back to where I was before I od’ed on sugar and gained…lol Yay! I get to move my tracker!

I am excited about so many things.. but I have to share this one with you….

I got a new purse!

Before you begin to have an image of me as a major shopper and fashionable chick, let me assure you, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. I despise shopping. I am not a mall kinda girl. In fact, if given the choice between the mall and a thrift store, I will choose the thrift store every time. I like to get dressed up on occasion, but for the most part, I am a ball cap and flip-flops kinda gal. I have just never been fru fru. I had never even heard of “Prada” until the movie came out….. seriously. But I decided that I needed a new purse for my new lifestyle. Not for fashion reasons, but for practicality. I bought a purse that has extra pockets and zipper compartments so that I will be prepared when I have a moment of weakness. There is an extra little pocket for me to put my “Truvia” packets in so that if I am out and about and want an iced tea, I can order unsweet, and add my truvia for a special treat. That way, I have no excuse to think I “need” a coke because “I have no other choices.”  “Their water tastes bad, I’ll just have a diet coke.” You know what I’m talking about.

There is also an extra pocket for me to keep a ziploc or a package of nuts or any other small but satisfying snack that will keep me from getting too hungry. If you’re like me, getting too hungry is a disaster waiting to happen. All logic leaves my thoughts when I think I’m “starving” and I do not have good judgement about healthy choices.

So I feel better prepared. Better prepared for my new life… my new way of thinking….my plan of action. And I have just taken away a few more of those excuses that hold me back. Plus, it’s a really cute purse, even for a fashion-challenged broad like me! =)

    Yay for a new purse! I would love to be one of those women who manage with a small clutch, but unfortunately I tote around far too much stuff…
