Fit Into My Skinny Dress

Friday, February 15, 2013

You know that goal clothing item people use instead of the scale? Well, "just in case," I tried it on this morning to see if I could wear it for my party tomorrow. Guess what? It fit! How is that possible, when I weight 160 pounds?

Then, it occurred to me; part of the weight must be muscle mass. That, and my stomach is shrinking because of the good abuse it's taking. I'm not saying it couldn't fit better, but I can definitely wear it in public, and it's not tight.

Well, I think I'll look for another non-scale victory that doesn't involve buying any new clothes or fitting into old clothes. I haven't used body measurements as goals, but that might be something to shoot for. Especially the arms and thigh circumference.

And I still have to hit my four day a week core work, that I only hit once this week, so far. I punked out yesterday.

All this to say that I need a new feel good goal. (I wasn't expecting to fit into this dress for a few more months. It's kind of anti-climactic. What?) Actually, I might go to Milan in May. But, that would require a sh*t load of sub work and a floor to sleep on in Italy.

    Many other things you can use for goals. How many sit ups or push ups you can do in a minute... or 5 minutes; how fast can you walk or run a mile? Congrats into getting into that dress tho. That is an accomplishment.
