Well, at this point I've done pretty much all I can. So I'm just hoping the stager will perform some magic next week that make potential buyers swoon. I am paying them good money, so they better. Then I hope my realtor sells it fast! Ok, apparently she's from the #1 selling real estate office in the country (Coldwell Banker of Beverly Hills). So I'm really hoping it works out well. She was my realtor when I bought the place, and I love her. She's super on top of things and very responsive and keeps you in the loop, which I think are very important qualities to have in a real estate broker. She's probably also used to selling very expensive places, but she likes me for some reason and took me on as her charity case lol. Fingers crossed next week goes well, and then hopefully next weekend we will have our first showing! This process is way stressful though. Ugh.
Anyways, enough rambling! I gotta make this one short so I can go to bed... hehe. This was my second week of being on a reduced calorie diet. I say reduced, but it's still more than what I ate before I started training with my coach. I think I have definitely become leaner the past 2 weeks. But earlier this week it was my time of the month, and I retained water more than any of the times after I started this training program. I was so happy the last couple times that I had almost no weight gain at all. But this time I gained like 3 lbs. It's not that significant and it went right back down after I was done, but I find that a little bit interesting. This is probably all TMI though!
What I did: Lower body weights. I increased my Bulgarian split squat weights to 75 lbs, 3 sets of 12. I think my legs were sore from it for like 3 days after!
What I wore: Lululemon No Limit Tank in flash, and Empower Crop in coal/passion with Adidas adizero adios 2 shoes.
I kind of forgot about this Tahari ASL Surplice Woven Shirtdress for a while, but I dug it out of my dry cleaner's bag and wore it to work! I wore it with Sam Edelman Mallory slingbacks. It used to fit perfectly but is now a little baggy around the hips. Sad face!!
What I did: Upper body weights, tris and shoulder. Followed by 30 minutes of walking on the treadmill.
What I wore: Lululemon cool racerback in wish blue with Yogasmoga Run Jump 'n Play crop and New Balance Minimus Road shoes.
What I did: Upper body weights with back and biceps. Followed by 30 minutes of gauntlet.
What I wore: Lululemon Light Up tank in pig pink and Run A Marathon crop, with Brooks Pure Balance shoes.
Thursday 7/25 - Rest day. But here's my work outfit: Express studded bateau neck ruched sleeve sweater in aquamarine, with Express tweed studio stretch corset pencil skirt and Vince Camuto Dacoma pumps in hurricane gray pearl patent. It was the first time I wore this sweater since getting it. I totally forgot about it lol.
What I did: Lower body weights, followed by 30 minutes of walking on 15% incline.
What I wore: Splits59 Ashby tank in yucca, with Lululemon Free To Be bra under it in faded zap, and new Splits59 Nova capri tights in gray/granita. I wore the Skora Phase shoes which I hate and threw away right after this workout. Aside from being uncomfortable and still rubbing my heels, they are already coming apart and I only wore them lightly like 5 times.
The tank is pretty sheer, so you can see the pretty bra under it. I love it, it's super soft and comfy, and wicked really well. You can see it really well in the back!
For work on the same day, I went more casual. I wore my Express striped rolled sleeve tunic sweater in gray and Express cropped wide waistband editor pants. But I wore my new shoes for the first time! The Vince Camuto Jiris sandals! Love them, they were super comfy all day.
What I did: Upper body supersets. It only took me about 30 minutes in the morning, but after that I went and moved furniture and stuff all day until like 9 pm!
What I wore: Lululemon cool racerback in petit dot dune with Victoria's Secret supermodel cami bra under it in sweetest orange. I know a lot of people don't like this cool racerback because it's one of the super sheer ones. But I like that about it. I love that you can see the bra! Especially since the tank and bra combo matches my new gray/crimson Nike Frees perfectly!!! I also wore my Beyond Yoga gathered legging in mojave, which is such an awesome color. I secretly really loved this outfit and wished I wore it for longer than 30 minutes.
What I did: I played tennis with the ball machine! Does cleaning all day count as arm workout too?
What I wore: Alo Sport Zen Layer tank with Beyond Yoga white skort and my new Nike Frees again! I love the color combo of these shoes, even though I probably shouldn't wear them for tennis. But I only played for an hour.
And my Lululemon Centered Energy bra in flash fits under the tank perfectly:
|Love the back of this tank|
As to and from, I wore my Splits59 Olivia Run Tee in barberry/apricot.
And that's it for this week! I am hitting the sacks now, it's almost midnight! Eeek!
