In laws and AN AWESOME NSV!

My in-laws...

They are here.

It's crazy.

"'Nuff said!"

On a more positive note, all of the things are ready for the expo and the race. And that feels awesome!!

Yesterday I went to yoga. It feels so good. I am ridiculously happy that I started going. I feel 10 times better when I leave. And every time I'm there I notice that I'm getting stronger -- for example, the instructor says to do girlie push-ups to build strength progressing to real push-ups and then chaturanga to up dog so that we have the upper body strength to do everything correctly. I can do more girlie push-ups and do them more easily. That was pretty cool!

Also, my arms are less flabby which makes me a happy girl.

I slowly jogged/walked fast for 3 miles tonight. It was awesome. I found s new trail in this ritzy neighborhood which has trees all around and a little creek. I'm a fan. And it's not too far from my house, which is also a plus.

Tomorrow will be a long day but I'm excited for the race (and in just excited for it to be over, if I'm being honest) its always a good time!

Plans for this weekend include yoga on Saturday, studying (it's week 1 and I'm already behind) and jog/walking on Sunday (which I will need since everyone is coming to out house for Easter... Ughhhhh).

Oh and I signed up for a 5K. It's in 6 weeks. I won't be able to run the whole thing but a bunch of my friends are going to do it, so ill do it too. I do the Susan Komen 5K walk every year (my grandma is a survivor) but this will be the first race so I'm excited!!

I almost forgot my NSV!!

I lay my clothes out every night so it's not a fight for what to wear in the mornings cause nothing looks good at 530 so is never leave the house!!

Last night I chose some black slacks, a black cami and a this paisley cardigan with sequins (it sounds god awful, but it's really very cute and surprisingly still in style. I always get lots of compliments on it).

The cardigan I have worn many times but the first time I wore it it was with a white collared shirt, and a black pencil skirt with black tights and heels for my med school interview here just over 3 years ago.

This morning I put on my pants and cami and got my makeup and hair done and then went to put on the cardigan and it was too big. Not a little big and it could still look cute, but too big like I can't wear it any more.

That is the first article of clothing that that has happened with and though I was frantically searching for something else to wear, it felt amazing.

Absolutely amazing.


  1. YES!!!! That is the best feeling isn't it??? It's sad because we love our favorite pieces of clothing, but it's also like YESSSSS!!!!

    1. It really was one of the best feelings in a long time!! So excited!!

  2. Nothing feels as good as skinny....!

    1. Isn't that a quote from Coco Chanel? "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels." Or somethig like that!! :)

  3. Yay! You're rocking the yoga! I might have to try it out. The clothing thing starts getting more frequent. I've found that I have to try everything on the night before to make sure it still fits, because the frantic morning outfit change makes me late every time.

    1. I really do love the yoga!! I would recommend it to anyone! I'm going in the morning too and I can't wait!

  4. Way to go Harli! Great NSV!! Congrats!
