Monday Semi-Rest

I got my new FiveFinger KSOs today! REI’s outlet was having a too-good-to-be-true sale on discontinued colors from 2011, and miracle of miracles, they had my size! My feet are 8.5 (39), which I believe is literally the most common shoe size for women, so I never get to buy shoes on clearance. I also had a huge dividend from buying winter gear while we were in Salt Lake City for Christmas one year. I ordered the shoes and then waited for the email saying “we’re sorry, we don’t actually have your size in stock.” Instead, I got an email saying they had been shipped! Then, today I checked the tracking out of curiosity and saw that they were due to be delivered today! When they arrived, I immediately put on the “clay” colored ones. I’ll wear them to walk the dogs tonight. They actually fit (another fear was that they were on sale because they were sized wrong or something.)

I ate less sugar today. This week, I might completely cut out sugar, mostly because I have a dress I want to wear at Rocky Horror this weekend and it’s slightly too small. (It’s a late-80s 11/12, which translates to a contemporary 7/8, I think.) The theme is 80’s prom and I have all the accessories– including a Swatch watch and giant hair. If it doesn’t fit, I’ll just do 80’s Madonna. It’s too bad I didn’t own my prom dress, because it would still fit. (I borrowed it and it was slightly too big.)

I had to take another rest from yoga because of my wrists. I might have to practice only every other day until my wrists get stronger. I kind of wanted to take this day as a semi-rest day. All I did today for workouts was walk the dogs around the block and do the May Workout Challenge.
