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!

  2. 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 πŸ™‚

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

    πŸ™‚ The dress sounds fab.

  4. I couldn’t wait either. Photo please when you’ve got the dress in your own grubby paws πŸ™‚ And you WILL get to goal and you WILL have the complete Buffy collection. Have a great week and good to see you feeling better!

  6. I am a white polka dot and red dress lover! Please post the pic when you get the dress! I have two or thre in my wardrobe and cannot wait to be able to fit back in them!

  7. 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 ;).
