[a weight loss story]

*kathrynoh at nemesis dot com dot au*



On Friday night my sister and I had to wait around for a tram to the city so we browsed through some of the local shops. I found a dress I loved - red with white polka dots - and decided I'd go try it on later this week when I got paid.

Today, on my way home from the city, I couldn't wait. I went in and tried it on. It is the most fantastic dress and I fell totally and utterly in love with. Since I have no cash, I popped it on layby. No one else is getting their grubby paws on MY dress. I can't wait until payday now.

The rest of Friday night rapidly descended into debauchery. We went to see a friend who works at a bar in the city and the shooters flowed freely, in all senses of the word. The rest of this week, I'll be in damage control mode. I don't want to think how many calories can be packed into one of those tiny glasses.

ps. I went back to the gym today for the first time in over a week. I only did a half hour hill run on the treadie at a slighly lower intensity than I normally use. I thought about doing some weights as well but figured it was better to leave feeling like I could have done more than getting all sick again. I ended up walking most of the way home afterwards so I had a pretty good workout.

I don't know when I'll get back in there again - I have dinner with my sisters tomorrow, writing class on Tuesday plus I have to do some extra work at a second job this week. I might try for some morning sessions or walk to work to make sure I'm burning some calories.

I need to get to goal - I have the complete Buffy collection to buy!

lol, yup those shooters can really be full of calories in those tiny glasses but very hard to resist!
dress sounds gorgeous, u wil have to post a pic!

Oooh, polka dots are very hip at the moment! I saw a girl at the football last night in a purple dress with white polka dots, I lusted after that big time!! (the dress that is!) I also saw a navy one at a shop in Lonsdale St.

You might have to take me to this shop :)

Have a great week, sounds like it will be a busy one xx

Glad you survived being back at the gym. Just remember to take it slightly easier than normal until your 110% fighting fit.

:) The dress sounds fab.

That dress sounds so cute! Shooters can definitely get the best of you; f course, my excuse always is "well hard liquor has less calories than other drinks". Yeah, not if I have 8 shots ;).

Ah, you have the same taste in dresses as I do! Red and white polka dots, how can anyone say no?

The Buffy box set will be in your hands in no time!
