Ok...There's This Pair of Jeans..

Thursday, December 23, 2010

I have had a pair of jeans hanging in my closet with the tag still on them from January 2003. It was after I had my daughter and I thought I lost all of the "baby weight", I went into Lane Bryant and bought a pair of size 16 jeans (my normal size at the time.) I choose LB because their clothes ran a little bigger. My husband said, try them on. I declined, "No, no, no! I've been a size 16 for years, I can get in these jeans." I got them home and put them on. (Let me rephrase that statement.) I got them home and I attempted to put them on and I could barely get them past my thigh. Holy Crap!! What the heck!!! For 7 years those jeans have been my nemesis. That was the point I realize I was a plus size store shopper! I thought I would be doomed to a life of elastic waist jeans that were a denim/spandex blend.

I am giving myself until March 2011 to fit into those jeans comfortable. I would love to say February but I want to be victorious! THE BATTLE OF THE JEANS IS ON!!!!

    emoticonI'm so glad u got out of a bad marriage. U deserve to be happy & staying in a bad marriage isn't any good. It makes people sick from the STRESS.

Stay away from SCORPIO men, as you certainly will be lied to.

You can do fine being SINGLE until you find the RIGHT person, so give yourself time. TWO children take up a lot of time so you have yourself "booked" already.

    then hunnybun the song for your 2011 should be Letting Go by Janelle Monae. For me this song helps me realize my reality of not working so hard, trying to make every dime in Johnny's, working 17 hour days! in 2011 i'm taking a day off! the song is about a girl quitting her job(ME! ME! MEEE!) but actually it can be about quitting anything that holding you down or back from realizing freedom! so go check it out , turn it up and play it one time for me too virginia!! - emoticonbran

Day 5 of the 28 Day Bootcamp Challenge

Thursday, December 16, 2010

Had another sleepless day. Went with my dad to the cardiologist as follow to his recent hospitalization and then teaching my sisters and my mom his treatment plan. Then setting up the ton of meds he is on for the week. Very emotionally draining day.

I only got 10 minutes of cardio in and the day 5 video. Will do better tomorrow.

Day 4 of the 28 Day Bootcamp Challenge (On a day that I was very tired!)

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

I was so super tired today, which made the work outs difficult to fit in today. It is freezing and extremely icy here in Michigan, so going to the gym was not an option for me today, so I choose to do videos.

How did I fit it in today?
I got off work at 8:30 am and went straight to the optometrist. I was back home by 10:30 a.m. and in bed by 11:00. No school today for the kids, so I was back up by 1:30pm to make lunch for them. Ran some errands, then back home by 4pm. Prepared dinner but while dinner was cooking I sneaked in a 10 minute cardio video. Fed the kids and then went into my room to do the Day 4 bootcamp video.
Got my daughter to bed by 8pm. Then I laid down for a couple hours, back up at 10pm. Did a 20 minute cardio video before getting ready for work. I was out the house by 11:15pm to be at work by midnight. Kinda chaotic, not well-planned out but I did it! emoticon
