But they didn't fit my foot - I'm guessing I have a high instep because the gaping hole to be seen from a mile away was THERE starting at me
So feeling sad and glum I headed to TK Maxx in the little hope that they might have some shoes for me (stopped at New Look, TopShop and H&M along the way - no joy). Not only did TK Maxx NOT have any shoes of any description for me they also made me look bloody stupid in the changing rooms. I know it's my fault for drinking too much wine and scoffing on sweets but I have to blame someone (I'm of the blame culture generation after all)!
Pretty delicate Ralph Lauren Kimono, so pretty on the hanger - ruddy awful on. It didn't do anything other than sit limply on .. it wasn't long enough to drape, it just hung there so sadly.
A gorgeous Paul Costello top that was so pretty but so see through that I had to put it back on the hanger
A gorgeous Nine West wrap dress that was so beautiful in colour but awful in fit - I couldn't get the wrap breast part to work - I think it's because I've not chest!
This had the potential to be gorgeous but it's my tummy sticking through, can you see the belly?
I thought it would be better in black but it's actually quite a thin material so it was never going to work, even though I loved the side hitch up detail
This is the saddest one of them all. It was so cute on the hanger (I saw it as I walked into the changing room and it had 10 on the label so I grabbed it. It had a cute net skirt but I could barely get it on ......
... let alone do it up!
Loved the style of this but the material was super thin and my belly super sticky out. Looks like I'm wearing a fanny bag UNDER the dress!!
Gorgeous colour, gorgeous dress but damn that blood belly!
So on Sunday morning I decided to do something about it - RUN! I am not a physical person, I do not enjoy any exercise, I despise it more than I can say but I also hated the feeling of not fitting into any clothes I tried on and the jeans I own are all too tight and 50% of what I own I can't do up. Last year I measured my body. This weekend I measured my body. I have gained 1 inch on my thighs, another on my hips and 3 inches on my waist.
TIME TO WISE UP AND GET FIT. I went for a walk/jog today and I've decided that when it's dry I will get one in when I'm not working. I only work 3 days a week so that leaves 4 other days for a brisk walk and attempt at running - wish me luck!!!!
Anyone feeling the pinch body wise after a very long Winter?
