Saturday, March 31, 2012Fruit, Exercise, Treadmill
This evening my 4yo brought me something. She had it hidden behind her back.
"Guess what I have" she said.
"Uh, a picture?" I replied
"Nope, guess again"
"Okay, letters?" My second guess.
"YES!" she said with excitementand pulled out this piece of paper and handed it to me:
"It says, 'fruit, exercise, treadmill! Fruit, exercise, treadmill! You need to keep exercising like walking and running so you can get smaller like Camille (my twig skinny 12yo)."
My 4yo is one of my biggest cheerleaders! She comes up to me all the time and grabs my wrists and says "You don't need to lose weight here anymore" and then grambs my upper arms and says, "But you still need to work on here."
My two older boys had a basketball tournament today. One had to be there at 8a.m. UGH, on a Saturday?!!!
Sadly I'm down to one pair of jeans that fit me in my current size (24). I do have two pairs of ugly workout pants (only to be worn at home) and one pair I wear to the gym (but NOT appropriate looking for public). Then I have a pair of nice sweats that are two sizes too big (yes, I'm still wearing them)
So last night I stripped off my jeans and threw them in the wash with items my boys needed. When the alarm went off this morning dh headed downstairs and moved the laundry over. Running a tad behind I went to the dryer 5 minutes before we had to leave to grab my jeans. I couldn't feel them. Then I started taking one thing out at a time. Nope, still NO jeans! UGH! I looked in the wash and there they were, all alone, dripping wet.
What am I going to wear?! Not my too large sweats I didn't wash them! I went to my drawer and grabbed the next size down, 22. I pulled them on, zipped them up and then the test...will my kids let me leave the house wearing them.
I headed downstairs and asked the question: "Do these look okay or are they WAAAAY too tight?" They all said the jeans were fine. WooHoo! I had tried these jeans on about 10 days ago but today I'm about 5lbs heavier. I thought there was NO WAY they were going to fit.
Size 22! Feels so great! I probably won't wear them again until I lose the 5 I gained. But it's such a great feeling knowing a true size 22 is only a week or two away! They may have zipped but they weren't as comfortable as I would have liked them to be.
***For those interested in the basketball tournament outcome:
Each boys' team won one and lost one. Both of their losses were in OT, one by one point and the other by two.
