I can't believe I am actually saying this. My clothes are finally getting to big. Today I went to the gym and after my shower I put on a shirt that I wore last summer expecting it to look nice. I really love the shirt. To my surprise I looked like a frump in it. It was huge on me. I actually took it off and put on a tank top and sweatshirt to leave in because it would have been kind of embarrassing. Some shirts you can wear when they are to big but this just wasn't one of them.
It's funny because I was irritated instead of excited. I guess I am going to have to try my clothes on the night before when I pack them. It is pretty exciting to finally start seeing the difference. Finally all of my hard work is starting to show. I couldn't wait to get this point but now I need new clothes. Not so fun when you are on a budget. Maybe I will check out my local Good Will store next week. I will let you guys know if I find anything good.
So today at the gym I exercised on the elliptical for 70 minutes. That's right one hour and ten minutes :). I burned 560 calories. I kind of had to because I was up until 3 this morning getting my post ready for The Ultimate Blog Party and I ate 12 mini peanut butter cups. Boy I haven't done that in a while. They really didn't even taste that good. I think I was just so tired that I ate them without really thinking about it. Oh well, I am not going to let myself dwell on it. What's done is done.
After my workout I took my girls over to Rita's Italian Ice for Free Ice on the first day of Spring. My older daughter got Mango (my favorite), I got birthday cake for the baby (her first Rita's Ice) and Vanilla chip for myself. I ate a quarter of it and it was wonderful. We had a really great time eating it in the car because it was so cold outside.
I can't believe it is the first day of Spring. So exciting. Summer here we come!
