Fiber is Your Friend

Kimberly has a wonderful coral colored necklace that I've been eyeballing from the first time she wore it. Well, I somehow convinced her that she and I should swap some items, including that necklace. It came to me with on simple restriction - I had to give it back to her after a week. Do you know what that means? Does it mean I only get to wear the lovely thing once before sending it back? NO! It means you are going to see me wear it every day this week, or at least until I can't find anything else to wear with it.

The dental hygenist thought it was a great necklace too. I was worried she might steal it from me while I was incapacitated on the chair, but she kept her fingers in my mouth and off the necklace. Whew! Close one!

What I Wore While Getting My Teeth Cleaned:

2010-06-07 combo

  • skirt (Lane Bryant)
  • blouse (Old Navy)
  • belt (Ross?)
  • shoes (compliments of Lane Bryant)
  • earrings (Target)
  • necklace (borrowed from Kimberly)
What I Ate That Had TOO Much Fiber:

2010-06-07 food

  • breakfast: skim greek yogurt (local farm), blackberries, Fiber One
  • lunch: homemade brocolli soup (not brocolli cheese soup, just brocolli), low cal hot dogs, orange
  • snack: Soy Joy, orange (not pictured: 3 points)
  • dinner: sausage link, kale chips, squash & basil salad
  • dessert: low fat ice cream sandwich (not pictured: 3 points)

You are now entering the world of TMI: I'm usually a pretty healthy girl, but I go on benders where I eat nothing but crap for a few months. That's where I've been recently. And since I just got back on the healthy food, let's just say it's been a little shocking to my body. Poor body. Mistreated with grease and sugar and salt. Then beat up with fruit and veggies. Luckily the body will adjust.

Total for the Day: 22.5 points (oops this is way too low. I need to be eating 29 or 30 right now, but I didn't count them until the next morning.)

You are making me sound pretty stingy here, but what can I say I am an only child that doesn't share well and I didn't want it to be another "traveling scarf incident" aka have the necklace go MIA for months! :-)

I am loving this outfit - the shoes look great, the belt is fun, and that skirt has a great pattern!

I am so jealous that you are getting to borrow that necklace! Every time I see her wear it I say to myself, "I have got to find one like that!". Lucky girl!

That is a great necklace - I never would have thought to pair it with the color blouse you are wearing, but it looks really sharp! Plus I LOVE your new shoes!

I like how you took Kimberly's piece and made it your own (for the week, anyway!!). It looks great with that skirt - which I'm coveting by the way. Nice!

Courtney - Trust me! I feel special!

Shelley - thanks! I probably never would have thought to combine these colors either, but the skirt inspired me.

Sara - thanks! If I thought the skrt would fit you, I would totally loan it to you. But I'm pretty sure it's too big for you.

C - I hear ya! I love all things sparkley too!

Sheila - thanks!
