A tragic side effect of exercise ...
Wednesday, March 27, 2013
I have a nice little collection of knee socks. Many of them striped. Several in simple whimsical patterns from polka dots to butterflies.
As I have been working out my calf muscles have been gaining lovely definition. I have always like my legs but they are really filling out now.
My socks have been getting snugger.
Today a tragedy happened. I put on my grey and black striped socks and then had to remove them within 5 minutes because they were so tight they were restricting blood flow.
Yet, I am glad to be getting fit, but I mourn my ability to wear normal size knee socks.
I know for a fact I can get better quality ones in larger size (most of mine were procured at a sock outlet for $2-3 a pair) but they are not only pricey, but they also are made for larger feet (for a tall girl I have strangely small feet) so the heel turn always matches up to height of my ankle and looks crappy on me.
Yes I know, there are worse problems. I have to laugh!
Things I never thought I would be whining about:
My clothes are all are too big!
My legs are so shapely I can't fit into knee socks!
These are trade-offs I can live with but I really will miss my awesome socks.
