Have you shopped for women's clothes lately? Everything either fits like a trash bag with arm holes or looks like what a stripper would wear. Over the past week, I've sent back half a dozen blouses that were low cut, fit like a sausage casing, or were see-through. Even though they were from an upscale store, they looked trashier than any top I've seen on hookers in Indianapolis.
I finally found some nice blouses by Liz Claiborne at JC Penney, of all places, and some nice t-shirts I can wear under sweaters or blazers at Land's End. (The U-neck jersey t-shirts are $8 there if you want to stock up.) Another one came from Amazon--it's a brand that's also at Target.
Now that I finally have some nice tops, after weeks of searching, I don't want to outgrow them. I don't want to look flabby in them, either, since some of them are form fitting. To that end, I'm continuing working out a few times a week keeping nuts and dairy to condiment levels.
My new favorite workouts are by YouTubers called Juice and Toya. Their body weight and dumbbell workouts for beginners challenge me just enough and don't make me feel like I kinked something the next day.
Even with more exercise, cleaning up my diet, and taking more iodine, I haven't lost weight, but my face is less puffy and I have more energy. I look firmer. I listen to music to put me in the mood to exercise.
