Sunday was a rough day, in a sense. I got up and worked out for over an hour. I do these 6-7 days a week. I do it because I have a goal, but also because I enjoy going. I will admit that getting up at 5 a.m. isnít always the easiest thing to do, but once I get there and am done with my workout, my day seems to go much better. I have more energy; Iím not as hungry and I love going home in the evening and having that time to dedicate to my kids and my household projects. Sunday was my boysí birthday party. They are now 4 and 10. Crazy to think that, but they are. On Wednesday, I will be turning 30. I canít decide what is more shocking; that my baby is in the double digits or that I now am out of my 20ís. Anyway, after working out, enjoying the paper and coffee, getting the house cleaned and the appetizers all set to go for the party (all healthy in one way or another), I decided it was time to try on THE pair of jeans. Now these arenít my smallest sized jeans. They are the same ďsizeĒ as the ones I am currently wearing, but we all know how that works out. They are Leviís and they are adorable. I love them, but I they are hanging in my closet with the tags still on, because they were just barely too tight when I bought them and it seems they shrank in their bag on the way home. LOL! Anyway, I tried them on. Yes, I could manage to get them buttoned, but they were nowhere near comfortable. I donít get it. For the last 35+ days I have been busting my butt at the gym. Yes, I can see slight differences, but not really in my clothing. Yes, I know I have lost around or close to 15 pounds. (I havenít weighed myself lately). I know that is a huge loss for such a short time, but where is it disappearing from? I guess I was looking for a little gratification or maybe a reason to do a happy dance. Donít get me wrong, this isnít going to cause me to binge like I used to or stop going to the gym. I know if I continue to work out, my goal is that much closer. Just a little bit sad that Iíve come so far, but still have so far to go yet.
