I'm not superstitious. I walk under ladders, don't mind black cats and if I broke a mirror the only thing that would worry me would be the clean up. However, I know some people on here don't believe in buying clothes a size smaller until you get there, that it's a jinx. That's an understandable point of view because it's also a waste of money too.
I did it anyway.
Here's a tangent. I like computer games, especially RPGs (role playing games); I'm a big fan of the Mass Effect trilogy and its protagonist Commander Shepard. I tend to play the character's female incarnation, as she battles to save the galaxy not once but three times. Dear me, some things just can't stay saved.
As technology has gotten better Shepard's progressed from being a character who basically runs, points and shoots, to y'know, being a bit of a physical bad-ass. And maybe it's stupid to be inspired by a game and a fictional character but I am. In fact I'm so inspired that I bought a bit of game merchandising;a very snazzy hoodie, to wear to exercise classes. In a smaller size.
Yup, it's a birthday present to the me who might (should/hopefully) be able to fit into it in January. I don't usually make bold purchases, especially as I'm very keen to get a maximum use out of my wardrobe (and my old, smaller clothes), but I'm also motivated, working hard and really proud of myself.
Maybe it is a jinx, but if I stick to my plans and keep swinging those kettlebells.... it'll fit, and this way if the galaxy needs saving by a gamer girl, I'll at least look the part.
