I guess I can't have big losses every week. I wasn't great with my eating this week, so I guess that's why I stayed pretty much the same.
High of the Week: Finishing my 10K yesterday was the highlight of my week. I really had myself psyched out over it and I don't know why. I felt great during it and ran the whole thing, which is impressive because I even took walk breaks during my last 5K. Now I'm already looking into other 10Ks and 15Ks to do this fall :)
After my 10K, I showered and headed to the mall (the malls around me are lame, so I always take the opportunity to shop when I'm out of town!) Gap was having some awesome sales - I got some nice Gap Fit clothes for the winter on super clearance ($10 for tights and $7 for a long sleeve tech shirt!). I also got a nice hot pink shirt to go with the hot pink capris I got at the outlets a couple weeks ago! I can't wait to wear this outfit, but both are still a little snug - soon, though!!
Low of the Week: We found out that we can't go to the beach next week like we planned, which is a bummer - we were both looking forward to it. I was really looking forward to running on the boardwalk again! We're going to try to reschedule for August, though.
Best Work-Out: I had a strong week running my last few training runs. I also had a good one-hour personal training session Wednesday night.

I don't know if I'm the only one who does this, but I keep a drawer full of clothes that don't quite fit yet. I often buy things that are a couple sizes small if I find a good deal. I've built up quite a little stockpile. When I got home from the Gap, I added my new winter things that I'd bought a size down in anticipation of being smaller in the winter to the drawer. I decided to go ahead and go through and try on some of the stuff that was in there waiting on me. I have jeans in sizes 11, 12, 13, and 14 in there. I had bought 2 pairs of size 12 Calvin Klein jeans from Goodwill a long time ago (when I was maybe a size 20?) in hopes that I might one day fit into them. I tried them on when I first go them and they didn't even come up over my legs. Well, yesterday, I tried them on and they FIT!!! I have not been in a 12 since I was in High School, so I was ecstatic! While I was out shopping, I also stopped in Express - a store I have not even dared to enter since High School and found that their 12s almost fit and their large tops also fit! I'm getting really excited that I can shop in regular stores - it's a great feeling!
I had to be my own photographer this week, so I apologize for the lame mirror pics. I'll admit that they are still a little snug, but they fit!!
|The "next size" drawer after I hung up the things that fit now! Although my CK 12s fit, my Lucky 14s do not. It's crazy how much difference there can be in designers.|
Anyone else keep stockpiles of clothes that are too small for them??
