Guilty Pleasures

Okay, I am so over this week. As good as it started out daylight savings time is agony. I can’t sleep well, my internal clock is thrown off, and even with the extra light I feel like time is getting away from me.

I should have been elated when I got on the scale this morning and was greeted with 154.6 pounds. Instead I felt a little deflated, there’s so much going on in my head.

Yesterday I met with my realtor to look at some condos. Out of four properties two were good possibilities and one of them is out of this world gorgeous. While I was there I could envision myself residing in that location however moving further away from the city is not my first choice. Since Mollie (my dog) is family, it’s imperative that I find a property that will allow pets. Unfortunately in my immediate vicinity there aren’t many condo associations that accept animals.

Thinking about packing, moving (possibly out of my comfort zone), fulfilling my volunteering duties, maintaining my healthy lifestyle, blogging, and babysitting, my sanity is stretched to the max. So in view of all the chaos in my life I figured I needed a little pick me up and I found it in a pair of shoes.

Remember how last week I said the colors I was focusing on this spring were coral and turquoise? As an after-thought I said I like mint as well but would not add any new items of this color to my wardrobe. Well please forgive me but I lied, I found these lovely mint colored flats that lifted my spirits so I snagged them.

Building a wardrobe around these shoes I envision a tan and white color scheme including a straw fedora, mint statement necklace and nail polish to match. There was a time in my life prior to pink and white nails when I only wore red or clear nail polish but I adore some of the funky colors and I’m going to expand my horizons. The mint polish I found was out of stock so I’ll have to peruse the internet in search of the perfect shade. But have no fear I will prevail.

When I plugged my weight into Weight Watchers the system said words to the effect that I was losing too quickly and while sometimes this is normal care needs to be taken not to continue the trend. I’m sure part of the reason why was my system being thrown off-balance by the time change and not eating on my regular schedule. I hope this coming week will be better so that I can more appropriately manage my level of stress.

  1. […] Earlier in the year I did a post on these luscious mint colored flats I’ve posted the link HERE for your reference. I’ve wanted to wear these shoes for the longest time but either it’s […]

  2. Hi there girlfriend! ( or is that not said anymore?) THinking of you this morning. I had a rough last 5 days with my muscle pain, so I haven’t been on all the time. I wanted to check in, and where did i go, to your shoe post! I was just lamenting the fact that I can’t wear these gorgeous wedge sandals out there, no heels. That’s right, retail therapy, does help! I love the color of the shoes, you adding mint will look great.Also congrats on the weight loss, and just take it a day at a time, I have to remember that my self! Have a great weekend!

    1. Hey yourself girlfriend. That’s okay if it’s not said anymore I don’t follow the lingo haha. Sorry to hear of your pain, that must be so rough.

      I love wedges I have two pair at the moment and I can’t even think about giving those up but the cute flats these days are out of this world. And I agree with the mint color it’s so very pretty and I’ve been eyeing it for a while now so I’m not going to fight it anymore.

      Thanks for the kind words on my weight loss. I keep reminding myself to take it slow, one day at a time. Have a wonderful weekend Jess!! Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Love those shoes! Walk around town in those and you won’t care about the time change any more!

    1. Hahaha. Yup, that’s the plan. I hope they arrive early in the week.
