Moseying along

Sorry for the lack of posts! I feel like it took me a little extra time to settle back into my normal-life groove after being away last week. I kind of got out of the habit of taking pictures throughout the day - maybe it was because after taking pictures of the Rocky Mountains my daily nosh seemed significantly less interesting! Either way, I am back in the groove and doing really well on the eating and exercise fronts. I worked out Wed, Thurs, Sat, and Sun this week, hitting my goal of 4 workouts per week. I bought a new exercise top in Edmonton, which I love. It's just basic black but it fits great! Excuse the morning look - I literally had just rolled out of bed!
At my gym it seems like everyone is decked out in Lululemon stuff. I just can't afford it! I understand that it's high quality but honestly I do just fine with my stuff. My top is GAP ($17), bra is from Walmart ($18), and pants are Denver Hayes (from Mark's Work Wearhouse) ($15) - and it all works and looks great (or at least I think so!).  

Speaking of Edmonton here's some more pictures of Ali and I during our time together.

Ali and I in West Edmonton Mall - can you tell we're sisters? Later that night, someone asked if we were twins!

How many malls have a water park like this? Next time we are totally going!

Ali pretending to devour the cupcake we shared. It was chocolate with coconut icing and was delicious.

The dinner theatre we attended (and my wine!)
What a great 4 days :) Luckily I have some new purchases to remind me of our time together. I love shopping in Edmonton because there are so many stores, no sales tax, and I get to shop with my fashion adviser. Here is an outfit I picked up on my trip: boots, new skinny jeans, and top.

The genes I mean jeans (can you tell I'm a scientist?) were $25 from Old Navy and fit great (size 6). They are totally my new go-to jeans. I finally had to replace my old jeans after 1 year (which was sad because I loved them, but eventually I got the dreaded "chub rub") so I'm happy I found these!

In terms of my weight, maintenance is going really well. I haven't tracked in weeks (eek!) but I'm down to 144, which is pretty much the lowest I've ever been. I think I'm finally figuring this out. Yesterday night I got busy in the kitchen. I made big batches of chicken parmesean, roasted veggies (peppers, zucchini, sweet potato, carrot, and butternut squash), and Carrot Ginger soup for meals this week. I love having a well-stocked fridge! Today after an AM workout I did some grocery shopping and am currently spending the afternoon in Starbucks. Tonight is the Oscar's and Evan's picking up sushi!! I'm pretty excited :)

Hope everyone had a good weekend!
