The mall and I have a very unhealthy relationship. There are days that it makes me feel like
a million bucks I have a million bucks. Then there are days where I can only tackle a little of it at a time, and by the end have to pick myself up off the dressing room floor, and ice any wounds I may have gotten.
The latter was yesterday. I went in the JCPenney entrance; central location, easy escape, not too many other cars in the lot- and thought I would try to hit up as many stores as I could before work. Wrong, after about 10 minutes I had changed my frame of mind; maybe I’ll just do one or two stores today and try not to cry.
By the way, can we have a side convo and discuss how much I love the new JCP? No lines, no coupons, always a good deal. Heaven. I heard a bad rumor that they’ll be ditching the new campaign for the old because shoppers love coupons so much, say it ain’t so internet. I hate lines and coupons, I would rather pay a little more than stand in a long line. Weekend sale at Old Navy? No thanks, I’ll walk right by to another store. The only time I can justify standing in line is the day after Christmas, and then it’s only for discounted boots.
Do you love the new JCP? Or do you love coupons more?
I went into the dressing room with 1700 items.
Shopping blind is really hard. I grabbed sizes that I’ve never worn before and tried them on. At this point I don’t know what looks good and what looks awful. I’ve fallen out of touch with fashion and am so eager to get back in the loop.
This is what I ended up with. And yes I will wear it all today.
Watch my twitter and I’ll show you how it looks.
Part of this whole thing I’m doing is not just to become skinnier, it’s to become a more confident, healthy, free spirited individual. I want to be able to step outside my box, I want to say yes to things I would be too afraid to do normally. This site sends me a Dare once a day, something to do that may make me uncomfortable, but I have vowed to do every single one from this moment out.
I’m starting this a little late- today is #171
“Draw a picture of your best friend and give it to them”.
I am lucky to not only have one best friend, but three, they have stood with me since 6th grade and no matter where we go in life I know that I can call them and they will be there.
I’ll try to post all of my challenges for you, at least give you an update, but more importantly- I promise to do every. single. one.
What are you going to do today to push yourself just a little bit farther? A new exercise? New food? Kiss a stranger?
