When one area is not going great look somewhere else.

That's what happened this morning. In some areas of my life things are really stinking. I know it's temporary and it will pass but I feel the need to whine a little :)

I live in Hawaii so I live in shorts. Luckily I can even wear them to work - woohoo!!! When I lost weight I threw away all my large size shorts. Anything over a size 12 was history. I decided that 12 would be the largest I would ever be. Well last year that didn't work out so much. I put a few pounds back on and my 12's no longer fit. However, I refused to buy a larger size so I stuck to my elastic waisted running shorts. Around December my larger cut 12's started fitting again and I was pleased. This morning I grabbed a pair of shorts that although labeled size 12 have a small waist, more like a size 10 waist. I looked at them and thought they might fit so decided to try. They fit!!!! YES!!! Not only do they fit perfectly around the waist, the hips and legs are loose. Woo Hoo!!! I'm stoked. That really made my day. Especially since I overslept a little and didn't get my workout in.

I was up late last night, guitar class and then watching Lost. What's going on with that?? Charlie's dead?? Obviously I need to catch up. Then I went to bed and laid there reading until midnight. When the alarm went off this morning I knew I wasn't getting up. But I have a plan. I need to run twice during the week (for now). It's just too dark in the morning and in the evening I'm just too lazy. I've decided to try running at lunch. I bought all my stuff so I can change and clean up after. I think it's work out but today will be the test.

That's all that's happening in my life. My shorts fit and I'm running at lunch. Life is good.

Way to go on fitting into those shorts! And running at lunch, that sounds hard to do. I mean, I hate getting sweaty and then having to work. But, I wouldn't be good at an early morning workout as I'm more of a night owl. I was fitting into some of my smaller clothes but now they are tightening up. I need to remember that feeling of fitting into the smaller sizes when I'm not wanting to eat healthy.
I remember the days of living in shorts and thongs, that was awesome. I remember when I came back from the carribean it felt weird to wear the regular shoes.

Wonderful! Keep it up. This should be an incentive if nothing else.
