Cause I need some help.
When I bought this dress it was a titch tight.
Then Christmas and New Year’s food binge extravaganza came and went, AKA,
“I can eat anything I like cause it’s the holidays B****! YO!“
and now seven pounds later I need some serious help sucking in my back fat.
If I were more advanced in yoga I bet could do it. I’m sure Sting knows how to suck in his back fat. Well, if he had any.
I’m just beginner level yoga. I can’t even figure out how to do a frog stand. Why does everyone else make it look so damn easy?
Comparison is the thief of Yoga, I know, I know.
I should just be grateful I made it to my mat…
Well if you want to get all fancy about it “they” call it savasana but we all know it is sleeping. Probably why my husband loves yoga. Where else do you get praised for being so relaxed you’re falling asleep? I should have been turned onto this yoga thing years ago.
Okay…back to my outfit, because I almost killed myself trying to get some photos in my coat outside for you guys!
I was determined to get some outdoor photos so you could see the proper colour of this coat.
It’s the colour of the year! Serenity NOW!
Which is exactly what I needed when trying to get these photos. That snow is actually crusty ice.
I almost did a full-on face plant while wearing these extra slippery
skates boots. It would have been a real disaster because I’m sure my too tight dress would have exploded, and I would have gotten my Serenity Now coat filthy and possibly crushed my furry assistant Zoë who always seems to be underfoot. She might have broken my fall though. There is that.
Thank heaves my yoga skills are advanced enough that I was able to pull a Cirque du Soleil move and didn’t fall. It was close though. Seriously close and I pulled a muscle in my neck.
I appreciated the built in fuzzy
collar neck warmer on the coat for my aching muscles.
Isn’t the coat gorgeous? And the boots match! I wrestled Melanie for these boots at Talize. She almost had to call the fire brigade to remove them. Since they are made of plastic (fauxtastic leather) they create quite the suction.
My favourite thing about this dress is the fabric. It looks like ancient Mongolian warriors.
So any ideas about sucking in back fat?
