Friday Shopping Failure
Friday was an unsuccessful shopping trip, in search of some new workout gear. While I did purchase two pairs of tights, I have recently concluded that I just bought them because I needed some and not because I'm terribly fond of them. I also needed to spend Christmas money that I was explicitly told "not to spend on bills." So long story short, I will be returning said tights and holding out until I find some that I do love, not just accept for what they are.
Not only did Saturday start with

~5-foot Megan than for me.

I think it's time to revisit my New Years resolutions...already. Solely based on the adventures I've gotten myself into the past few days, I only think it's right to add a third "Try as many new things as possible" resolution into 2012's list. Sunday I was invited to participate in an activity that I've only done once before. It required a getup like this:
|You know you like it!|
I finally got my new plan for prep--macros are a bit different, as are meal orders, but all-in-all, I think it will be manageable. I know I've expressed that I'm concerned/confused about starting so early, but after talking to Pleasants, I am a bit more at ease. He wants to take a different approach--deplete me at first, cut me down a little past where I need to be, and once I lose more body fat, we will start to incorporate more meals, more supplements, etc. He doesn't want me to start on the fat-burners just yet since I am a little under 17 weeks out, and I personally don't think I need them yet anyway. Carbs are fewer and further between, but at least Sunday is pretty much a
Workout plan is back to a 6-day split, thank goodness!! It took all my energy not to lift according to a 6-day split when I was supposed to be reduced to 4-days when "building." Yeah, I'm stubborn. And I've been getting in more enjoyable workouts--hello, Crossfit!--though I've been told to scale back on those... Like I said before, I don't follow directions well--so sue me!
Upcoming this Week
Let's just say I have an event which will require me to wear this:
|The super awesome spender in me spent|
less than $10 out-of-pocket for a $90 dress!
And...back to winter. Yesterday we saw some snow. It looked a little like this:
Until next time--which will hopefully be sooner rather than later!
