Let's Get It Started

Let's get it started in here,
let's get it started, ha!
(yep, I'm serenading myself in my head. Thank you, Black Eyed Peas)

Today I wore:

  • black slacks (Lane Bryant)
  • magenta shortsleeve blouse (Target
  • grey cashmere sweater (Old Navy)
  • pink paisley chain belt, repurposed as a necklace (via Ross)
  • magenta kitten heels (Steven by Steve Madden)


So Day 1 went pretty well. But let's be honest here; if you can't make it through the first day, there are serious problems with your will power or motivation. Sheer ambition usually carries me along until Day 3. I hate Day 3. But more on that...on Day 3!

Let's look at pictures! Everyone likes pictures. And I find them to be highly motivating. Even when there are the oh so appetizing pictures of my take-it-to-work-in-old-chinese-delivery-plasticware.

I've been trying to climb the stairs one day per week. For the last few weeks it always seems to happen on Mondays. Today I went up and down 3 flights of stairs every time I went to the bathroom. That's 12 flights of stairs today, which doesn't sound like very much but my legs are almost always sore for a couple of days afterwards.
