So I have been working out a fair amount lately, which I'm excited about. I can feel myself getting back into it. I haven't lost any weight yet, but I did fit a tiny bit better into some work pants this morning which was exciting. I HATE that tight against my waist feeling with pants that are not fitting well. I didn't have it this morning, which was a great way to start off my day! Speaking of which, it's time reality set in. I still have jeans and pants in my closet that are from a looooooooong time ago that don't fit. I know that I'm working out and trying to eat better and all, but will I lose a ton of weight right away? Nope. And in the meantime, I hate fishing through all the pants I can't really wear to find the ones that fit/the ones that sorta fit and I can deal with for today. So after I finish typing this, I'm trying them all one, and getting rid of the ones that I have no hope for, unless I plan on fasting for the next couple weeks. I will make a few exceptions for the pants that mostly fit, but are just a tad tight. But the ones that I can't get past my hips to then try and lie on the floor to zip up....GONE!
Also something I'm trying...going straight to the gym from work. I make my workout bag the night before, and I have so much more motivation then! I also want to make a spare bag to just keep in my car all the time, so that I literally have no excuse when I'm out and about.
Ok, side note, holy crap! How the heck did I not realize just how good I had it in highschool? I know that seems out of left field, but I was just going through my "Me" pictures folder (yea, yea....I have a me folder that I use for profile pics, etc.) to find a picture for the beginning of this post, and found a ton of super skinny pictures. Ugh! I never thought I'd be a girl to later say I wish I had my highschool body, but DAMN! I kinda do....Ok no I don't. Not entirely. I love my curves, my girls, and my bum...but I do miss the overall fit-ness that I had!
Exhibit A: Um, can we say stick figure! Not fair!
Exhibit B, and so forth....
In this one I'm skinny AND I have a bum! I knew it was there!
Not the best group shot, I guess we weren't ready girls**? But goodness! I remember when my mid-drift was out a lot in highschool and it didn't matter at all to me. And by the way, do you like our homemade shirts? HOTT!
This picture below was actually taken (by me obviously, ha) in the beginning of college. Man I look healthy here! Not too skinny, and not too curvy. Although my girls are waaaay different now! I totally just made you look at my boobs there, didn't I? ha! :)
This has always been my favorite abs picture! This was the day of my highschool graduation. Look I have ab lines! Man I miss those! And skinny arms!
