Stripes of comfort!

I won't lie: I'm stalling. I should be working on my outline for the last chapter of my thesis and writing its introduction, but that would mean I am almost done this process. And that should mean I know what I'm talking about, which I clearly don't.

Don't be fooled by the bare legs: it's cold here. My solution to this sudden disappearance of spring? Crank the heat, and pretend it's nice out!  The sun is at least shining outside, so that helps.

I also had such a good work out today, the thought of trying to put on tights just seemed too painful. I dropped 10 pounds when I was sick last week, and only about 4 of it bounced back on its own. I think it was muscle mass, so I've been doing a lot of strength training.

I'm also trying to eat 6 meals a day... and I really just feel like I spend my day lifting weights... and eating... and lifting weights... and eating... both of which are better than actually writing!!


  1. That's the best way to be when you are weight lifting, lots of small meals and frewquently! I am tres jealous, I want to live that lifestyle but with an infant I am lucky to workout. And to stay out of the ice cream.
    Happy Stripes to you too!

  2. Aww I totally understand stalling. Blogs are so easy to ignore work with. I love the blue with the teenytiny stripes. Hope you're enjoying your 'created' spring indoors. Take it easy, the paper will come together in time. Goodluck!

  3. Oops, I misspelled frequently, but I don't have to tell you that! All that English and all.

  4. I Love that dress ! I have definitely heard of Wendy B., I just haven't been to her blog in a while. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  5. What a fun dress! I like the low pockets. You lost ten pounds? I've gained nine pounds since Oct :(

  6. love love love how you paired the dress with the shirt!!

  7. Cute! My friends joke that losing weight is the one advantage of being sick, but I know what you mean - its the muscle mass you're losing and it just doesn't feel right!

  8. I love this outfit!! The colors are great and I love the solution to going bare legged while it's cold! (i.e. don't go outside! :) ). And good luck on your thesis! I'm sure you know what you're talking about! (But procrastination is fun anyway...) :)
