Retail therapy

I went shopping on Saturday with the idea that I was going to buy a new keyboard for the computer, and a present for a party we were going to on Saturday night.

Instead I had a spur-of-the-moment bit of retail therapy!

I finally spent my Lorna Jane voucher that I got for my birthday (in January!!) Not for lack of trying, I usually go in and have a drool every couple of weeks, but just couldn't decide what to get! (so much to choose from!). I originally was going to buy some more 3/4 workout pants, but I decided that I should go for something different and ended up with casual pants. Tried on a medium, but they swam on me so I had to get the small! Always a good feeling! These are what I got:
And then I meandered into Myer and decided that I needed to buy some new jeans (I dont know what came over me! LOL!) so tried on these Riders... the material is so soft and they are very comfy, so I'm happy!

I have my mojo back this week and I'm feeling good. This morning I trained my back for the first time in a month, and my traps feel ok so fingers crossed that all the muscles and bones stay put! I deliberately went light on the weights, and was on the lookout for the slightest niggle - but so far so good. I was slightly appalled at how much strength I've lost though!
I've also been focusing this week on making sure I'm drinking 3 litres of water - lately I've been slipping in that department a bit, and waking up feeling all dry-mouthed. I'm just downing my last 750mls right now, and then I'm done. Got to get it all drunk by 7pm or I'll be up all night!
Anyway, better go get dinner organised I guess!

Love those LJ pants. We only have one Lorna Jane shop over here so I have to make an effort to go there. Otherwise I would be spending money left right and centre!!. How is your rib going?

I also love the Lorna jane pants!

great to read you have your mojo back, and yes it is amazing how quickly you loose strength,, well at least it comes back pretty quickly to compensate.

have a great weekend.

OMG... Lorna Jane... my... most... favourite... shop... EVER!! Last time I went in there for a browse and came out with $400 worth of stuff... oops!! And then I went back the following week and spent $100 more... am thinking of sending them a pic of me and saying "If you see this girl in your store, DO NOT LET HER BUY ANYTHING!!" Hehehe.

Great to see you have your mojo back, but knowing you I knew you wouldn't be down for long!! Go get 'em Hilary!!

Have an awesome weekend xxx

I have 3 pairs of those pants. In black and the new camo print. No only 2, the other pair isn't quite the same, still 3/4 in khaki colour. They are just THE most comfy pants - I don't mind paying a bit more for them.

Are you on their email list - LJ has 50% off this weekend!!

I never had much interest in shopping for clothes until I started losing weight! It is therapeutic!!
