I wore a skirt today. Like my readers pointed out, I’m comfortable, so who cares? Why do I get so caught up in what other’s think and how they perceive me? Is it because society has programmed us to care what people think about what we wear? All the What Not to Wear shows have given me an inferiority complex. I’ve always dressed nicely, people always tell me I look nice, even when I think I look like a scrub.
So, I put on my pretty black and white skirt that I made last summer. (Wish I had a pic handy for you, but I’m at work.) And guess what? The waistband is way too large. That means I’ve lost weight around my waist. Yay.
So, being encouraged with that, and considering that Gaylen has challenged me to walk 10,000 steps a day starting tomorrow, I figured I’d start now. I got off the bus two stops early today. Actually, it didn’t save me any time because the bus passed me just as I got to my normal stop, but I walked about three or four extra blocks. Some uphill, and then some downhill. It was nice for an early summer morning in Seattle.
Something I noticed however. The saying is that there is a Starbucks on every corner in Seattle. Not exactly true, but for every Starbucks I notice there seems to be a Bank of America. Weird. I wonder if they are in cohoots. (Kidding.)
Tomorrow, I’m bringing my camera to take some early morning photos, like I saw some handsome dude doing this morning. Gee, I should have gone up and said hi. Well, baby steps and all, you know?
Have a great day. I’m off to find a Starbucks and get a quad grande, split (half decaf), 2%, no foam latte. Yum.
