Welcome to Friday Free-For-All, where I talk about anything and everything on my mind. Sometimes, it even makes sense!
#Chewsday Challenge Check-In: This week was tough. Ben and I are a bit short on funds at the moment, so we didn’t make it to the grocery store. For the most part, I stuck to my rules–no booze during the week, one treat per day, protein at every meal. The only one I didn’t do well with was veggie or fruit at every meal. We are fresh out of fresh produce, so I didn’t have anything for breakfasts, but I was able to get some in for most of my meals and snacks, so all in all, I’m feeling good. Hopefully I can continue these habits through vacation this coming week. I think a large part of that will be buying my own groceries.
I got this super-spiffy, super-expensive tote bag fo’ free! This is a custom-designed Timbuk2 Tartine tote that my coworker’s daughters gave her. Online, the color looked like a nice coral, but in person, it’s screaming orange. Since orange is not Lori’s color, and is so totally mine, she gave me this tote bag, brand new with the tags still on. This will be my new summer tote/beach bag, and I’m super psyched. Lots of pockets and a wipeable TPU lining means easy clean-up. The best part is, this tote is versatile enough that it can replace two other tote bags, which helps me clear out some clutter!
What is it with racer-back everything for women? I’m in the market for some new running tanks, and it seems like everything available for women is racer-back. The sports bras that I’m currently using (lululemon tata-tamer) are not racer-back, so if I wear a racer-back tank, my bra straps are hanging out, which I really don’t find attractive. Do any of you have suggestions for tanks that have a normal back? I found some ones that look nice by C9 at Target, but I don’t have a Target near me and I’m hesitant about buying clothes online.
Busty girl running problems. I desperately need some new sports bras. The ones I’m currently using, lululemon tata-tamers, just aren’t cutting it. I could actually feel my boobs bouncing and they hurt a lot during and after my 8 miler on Sunday. I am a 32G, and sports bras my size are not readily available. I can’t spend a lot right now, but I would really like to get something before the half on June 29. Any other busty runners out there? What do you use? Help a fellow busty girl out!
I AM SUPER EXCITED FOR MY VACATION!!! As of 4:30 pm today, I will be in vacation mode. This is my family’s annual trip to Cape Cod, and it couldn’t be coming at a better time. I need a few days off from work and some time with my family. I’m looking forward to early morning runs, lots of reading, working on my tan (with sunscreen, of course!), swimming, and shopping. I’ve already planned out a 3 mile and a 5 mile running route, so I’ll hopefully be able to get my first double-digit run in at some point. I’ll try to post a couple of times, but no promises. And I’ll try to keep up with reading and comments. And of course, I’ll be doing a recap post when I get back 🙂
Do you have an annual family vacation? Have you ever been to Cape Cod?
