She wrote about a certain dress that a certain cast member was wearing on a certain reality competition show. It piqued my curiosity. I wanted to see what it looked like.
One of her readers left her a comment saying it was a Vincent Camuto dress and it was available at Nordstrom's. So I did went to the website, searched around, saw the dress, then I saw this. This dress. I want it. I must have it.
It's slightly out of my price range (by slightly I mean I so can't afford it) and so I decided that I must covet this dress from afar.
And then, because I couldn't get this damn dress out of my mind, I started brainstorming. How could I buy it? I really wanted it, could I justify the purchase tho? And an idea was borne.
Reward points! Hell yeah - I'm using my credit card points to buy this dress. I'll be spending about $30 out of pocket for it when all is said and done, which I can totally swing. And I'm buying it in a size 6.
This is my goal dress.
I am going to bring out my inner goddess.
I had no intention of making this my goal dress. It was Drazil's - totally her idea. I wasn't even thinking about that. I just wanted to buy it and get it in a smaller size. Then she suggested doing a photo shoot with me wearing it.
So now I have more ideas in my head. A photo shoot? When I reach goal? That thought NEVER occurred to me, and never would've occurred to me either. She said I should do a photo shoot in the white goddess dress throwing my before pic away. Or setting it on fire. Either or works.
So thanks, Draz. Because I need to feed my shopping habit. :-)
I woke up this morning with my glutes and thighs sore from my workouts yesterday. Which I found rather strange because it was strictly a cardio workout. I guess it was from all those squats and kicks. That happens, right?
I started with 25 minutes on the treadmill, then I did The Firm Express Sculpt with Kelsie Daniels. Wow. This was hard. I felt it right away. I added 20 minutes of weight training to up my workout to an hour and to burn more calories. I went heavy with the weights tonight. Lunges, shoulder presses, hammer curls, lat rows, chest flys, squats, side lunges, plies, and dips. When I did my sets of lunges, I felt it in my thighs. I mean, I REALLY felt it.
Whoa. I thought I would hurt myself even though I knew I wouldn't, so I just kept pushing. I used my 12s & 15s for the lunges and squats, respectively. When I tried to do the dips with my 12s, I felt the twinges. So instead I just used my own body weight, no dumbbells. I burned 545 calories.
Solid day in the books. Tracked everything, got in all of my requirements, and stayed within my points.
Who else wants to bring out their inner goddess with me? :-)
