We went to an event for a charity he's on the board of. I wore a simple below-the-knee cotton dress with a cute red and white print on it. It has cap sleeves and a V neck. It's a modest cut, but it's thin cotton and really does hug certain curves and drape nicely, without being tight. I haven't worn it in a few years b/c my belly looked bulgy in it. This week - it doesn't. The amazing compliment: My guy told me that though he knows I'm not a possession or a trophy, he couldn't help but be really proud to be with me tonight looking like I did. He said I looked perfect - that the dress wasn't revealing and I wasn't trying to look sexy, but I just couldn't help it - I made the dress look hot. I've never gotten such a great compliment before. I'm still beaming! I mean, really - that'd what it's all about! To look great without looking like you're trying to. Ah, I so love that man...
I think I like having these every-other-week let loose day, to eat twice as many calories as usual. Today's diet includes a reception w/ wine and hors d'oeuvres and a nice dinner in an Italian restaurant my guy and I stumbled upon when walking back to our car from the reception. ($250 for 1 wine, 1 shared appetizer and 2 entrees. If you break it down by dollars per calorie though, it seems somewhat of a bargain!)
Exercise: Firm Fitness Cardio w/ Weights & 10" step.
Psyched for tennis in the morning!! Gonna burn off that orecchiette pasta w/ ground sausage and broccoli rabe swimming in garlic olive oil, and all those fancy, yummy hors d'oeuvres that I wasn't even sure about the content of. I kinda wish I could earn back the dollars I spent one by one in the same fashion. How'd THAT be for exercise incentive??
