I’m going to start this blog post off with some *breaking news*. I have officially gone down a size in jeans! I bought these fancy dark indigo “sailor jeans” last week and they arrived yesterday. They are a 24/tall (I know, I’m not tall…but sometimes I need the extra room for the booty!). Well, they fit! They’re too long (I know…because I’m not tall! haha) so they have to be hemmed. But, I am HELLA excited about this! The scale might not be my friend, but these new jeans are!
Cute huh? Once I get them hemmed I’ll snap a shot for my blog! 🙂
So, I’ve been bringing my iPod with me when I do cardio session and it’s currently “stuck” on one album (my iPod is possessed, the only way to unstick it is to let the battery drain. Weird right?). Anyways! The album is “Save Me San Francisco” by Train. Since I have become intimately familiar with it, I’ve fallen in love with a song that is fueling my workouts. “Words” has this line that just makes me push myself harder and farther each time I hear it:
Words, they’ll try to shake you
Don’t let them break you or stop your world from turning
When words keep you from feeling good
Use them as firewood and let them burn
Perfect right?! So, what words are you going to fuel your next workout with? Mine will be the phrase “always a fat chick”. I go through phases during my workout where I can’t get the idea that I might always be fat out of my head. Rather than dwell, I’m going to try using that as fuel for my workout fire!
I have been mulling around the internets for inspiration and came across a FB site for Amanda Arlauskas from Biggest Loser season 8 and DAYMN was I impressed by her! Check out her before and after pics I snagged:
Not only is she gorgeous, but she looks so healthy! Her page mentions how much she still works out, and I was really inspired to keep trucking. 🙂
I’m about a week away from Vegas and I have mixed feeling. I’m excited to see work friends I haven’t seen in a year (especially a group of German from my company who I am totally infatuated with, I love their accents!). But, I’m disappointed to not have met my personal goal of being under 300. Maybe if I had worked harder during the winter I could have met that goal…but if’s and and’s don’t get you anywhere! This weekend I have to go through my closet and pick out what I’m bringing. I hope fitting into some cute tops from a few years ago will boost my spirits!
