Well well well... I am such a liar. I was around for a week and than it was mass chaos again! I have been busy at work so the blog fell to the wayside unfortunately. I just didnt have it in me to come home and write... but I did think about it every day, honestly. I really said "oh I want to write about xyz" to myself every day, but I was so tired and since aside form work, going to crossfit is super important to get through my days I needed my sleep! So that came first. Than I had a fun fulled weekend jam packed with so many fun things that until tonight I didnt get a chance to sit down, unwind and focus on the blog. Alas, here I am, writing and in a great mood ready for the rest of the week!
Today was a milestone that I will not forget. I had quite the breakthrough... I went shopping. You can ask my mom, you can ask Hubs and you could even ask a few of my girlfriends... pant shopping with me... NEVER a good time. You see, I have a huge problem buying pants off the rack and have spent numerous occasions literally crying (no lie, actual tears) in the dressing rooms at various stores trying on pants. One of the most stressful things that I have to do. It was a lost cause and once I find one pair that fit they become the "go-to's" and I never have to look again.
My body is changing, I am looking at myself differently in clothes and the "go-to's" are starting to lose their appeal. It was time to go shopping... so KP and two other friends had a "Patriots Day Shopping Extravaganza" yesterday. What a trip it was!!
First stop I was looking for a pair of gym shorts. Went for the "usual" size. I was floored when the waist was way to big! I couldnt believe it. I was pretty much on a high after that. After lunch (yes, even after eating) we continued on and I met my new best friend... Charlie Baby Boot... he is long, lean and SEXY... the perfect pair of jeans. I was told "you WILL" fit into a pair of Lucky Brand Jeans and let me tell you, I was not let down. They fit and they made me feel like a million bucks... and the fact that they are 3 sizes smaller than the last pair of jeans that I bought... well that helps!
So the rest of the trip went great. Things fit, things didnt fit... but for the first time in a long time when something didnt fit I didnt get pissed of and upset with myself that I was not happy with my body. When I put on a pair of shorts and they nearly cut off circulation in my quads all I could think when I looked in the mirror was "damn, my legs are coming back... and they look damn good!!" I know I am working hard, I know I am proud of my body and I will find something that will work.
My advise is what it always is.. and I can finally say that I am living proof. If you are unhappy, do something about it. Who knows you might get "Lucky" too!!
