Today has without a doubt been my favorite Valentine’s Day ever! I think the reason is that I’ve finally realized that today is about our love for everyone, not just romantic love.
This morning I got up and made my love a CD of our songs along with a case for it. Then I attempted to make him heart shaped bacon which kind of turned out (Pinterest lies sometimes). He came over and I gave him my little things but we are doing our big celebration next weekend on our anniversary. After that he had to leave for class and home an stayed for a while and got some cleaning and journaling done. On my way home I went to Anthropology to try to find a dress for next weekend but no such luck. I’m happy that I didn’t get down on myself when things didn’t look right on me though! I blamed the dress instead of myself and I feel like that’s progress. After that I went to Lululemon with my Christmas gift card and got a great sweatshirt! I’ve decided that after many tries their pants just aren’t for me. I splurged and got myself a chai latte and came home to my parents. I made myself dinner because they went out. I read my new magazine, took a bath, read my book (for fun!), listened to music, and now I’m watching a movie while having tea and some chocolate covered raisins.
Finally! I weighed myself and I’m proud to report that after a week and a half of clean eating, lots of water, short workouts, and yoga I am already down 3 pounds! I’m really proud of myself for sticking to clean eating rather than just cutting calories and it’s really paying off.
I hope you all had a lovely day!
