Hey everyone! Wow so I’ve been meaning to post a new blog for a week now but haven’t gotten around to it so I’ve decided to take a mini break here at work and finally jot some of my thoughts down.
I’m still weighing in 159-160 on a daily basis so no new lbs have come off in the past 2 weeks BUT I did have a few mini shopping victories!! First I went to Kohl’s to buy some new running shoes but they didn’t have the shoe I liked in my size so I swung by the clearance racks and found several jackets for 60-80% off. I picked up a few smalls and a few mediums….EVERY SINGLE SMALL FIT!!! I was so excited! My first reaction though was “whoa, these brands sizing is way off!” but then I told myself “who cares, the tag says small!” ha-ha. I ended up buying two jackets, one was normally $130 and I got it for $ 26 (steal!), and the other was normally $74 and I got it for $36.
Then I walked down to Victoria Secret because I have been in desperate need of a beige bra to wear under white tanks, all my bras were black, animal print or bright pink so I would have to layer tanks like crazy in order to camouflage them under a white shirt!! Anyway at my heaviest I was a 40/42DD, in December I went and got fitted and was 36C. To my wonderful surprise they just measured me at a 34D! When she told me 34 I said “34!? NO way! Skinny people wear 34’s!!” The lady just laughed at me but I was honestly somewhat in shock. I thought when I put the bra on that it was going to feel like a corset but it didn’t….it fit! I called and immediately told my mom but she’s been thin her whole life so I don’t think she understood the magnitude of it for me. Oh well, I can’t wait to go back and buy more now :)
That’s about it for now …. Still been getting my workouts in. Oh, and one more thing…I started tracking my runs with daily mile, anyone else use it? January I ran 25 miles (in addition to other workouts of course). This month I am aiming for 35 miles and then I will continue progressively building up to what I was running last summer (like 90 miles/wk!). As the weather gets nicer I’ll run more outdoors, its so hard to log that many miles on the dreadmill.
Have a great week guys! Be the best you that you can be!
