A Special Purchase For Inspiration In The New Year!
Wednesday, December 28, 2011
Christmas was absolutely wonderful! We ate, drank and were very merry as we celebrated with family and friends.
Now, it's time for me to get back to my regular routine. So, yesterday and today I went to the gym. It felt great to be back!
I also started carefully tracking my food yesterday. All the holiday temptations are gone, so it is a lot easier to be "good".
But, I have always found the need to have that little extra inspiration/motivation to keep things moving along. I have found that if I spend money on a really nice piece of clothing that is too small and hang it in my closet, I push myself harder to be able to fit into it. So, today I went shopping! Money is somewhat tight at the moment, so this made my spree even more daring. I went to TJ Maxx (one of my favorite stores) and found a gorgeous pair of Calvin Klein jeans on sale in a size 10!!! Mind you, it is not too long ago that I finally got into a size 12!
The interesting thing is they actually fit most of me really well. The only place I need to lose is in my waist. I figure another 1 to 2 inches should make them comfy at the waist. When I got home, I was able to button & zipper them while lying on the bed!
Then, DH had to haul me off the bed so I could take a look in the mirror. Not bad! Actually, DH thought they made my butt look really nice!
With the New Year fast approaching, I now have my first resolution ready and waiting in my closet. I WILL fit those jeans before too long. And, I don't recall EVER wearing a size 10 jeans.
