My trailer trash shorts!

Monday, October 19, 2009

I have this pair of cut off jean shorts that I have worn every Canada Day in my hometown that I can remember. I'm not sure exactly how long I've had them, but at least 10 years and probably more like 15.

Today my husband made a ridiculous fire in our woodstove, so I put on the shorts and they actually fit again! Don't get me wrong, I've been wearing them when they don't fit, I just had to wear long t-shirts and not do up all the buttons. I wanted to get back to where I was when I started working. I can't believe I'm back to my university days!

Although I have been eating fairly well and doing cardio, it feels like the most immediate results come from strength training, even though my strength training program is fairly meager.

It's so nice to know I can do this and still live a fairly relaxed lifestyle, and when I start to go up again, I just have to track a little more intensively and make smarter choices again.

    Awesome!! It's always a great feeling when clothing that doesn't fit or can't be fit into becomes wearable. Congrats on your weight loss thus far.

    Strength training really is the gift that keeps on giving. It builds muscle which, in turn, burn fat. When I was in the best shape of my life, I too had a fairly meager weight work out.

    Keep up the good work!!
