The Gray Pants

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

I basically only wear pants from The Limited. And really just one cut. But I have this one pair of gray pants in a different cut. They're the same size, but they're not the 'curvy' cut the others are, and man can I tell the difference. I'm the definition of hourglass, so I need roomy hip regions in my pants!

I haven't worn these pants in a long time. They were just a smidge too snug for me to feel comfortable, so they were tucked away in the closet. But this morning as I looked at my sea of black pants I figured I'd give the gray ones a shot, and VOILA, they are on my ass as we speak! :)

They're still snug, but I'm perfectly comfortable wearing them in public. And hey it'll encourage me to do a few more squats today to loosen them up. (What? You know it works.)

No boot camp or even gym this morning to give my knees a rest. I think I got a little overzealous on Sunday with my four miles and they hurt yesterday at boot camp, so a nice rest today to let them recover and I'll get back to it tomorrow. (Actually I was going to get on the elliptical or something easy and low impact but then I decided I'd rather sleep. This is the slippery slope I face every day and why I must remain vigilant in getting in my daily exercise.)

    I understand that slippery slope! But it is important to listen to your body and rest when you need to. But omg, woohoo on the pants! I have some jeans from Lane Bryant that are like that. They're the same size as the pair I'm wearing, but the cut is totally different and I can't wear them at all :( I mean, not even snug, just unwearable :sigh: Maybe I'll try them on today just to see how I'm doing? Eee... But congrats to you!!!

    I feel pretty certain that the gray pants are telling you that inches are more important than pounds :)

    ALL of my pants (even those of the roomiest cut) are too tight at the moment. Your pants story shall serve as my inspiration.
