In case you were wondering, what really spurred my burning need to get back to exercising regularly was a pair of jeans.

Before I went on vacation, my size 8s were fitting well - a bit loosely, even. My first day back at work, I pulled a pair of jeans from the closet and tugged them on to find that they were quite snug. I was pretty sure they'd been in the dryer recently, so I figured they'd loosen up as the day went on. Not so much.

It's been a good five days since I've worn those jeans. I've worked out three times, minded my portions, drank plenty of water... Still, when I put them on this morning, they were still snug. The hell? I tugged them back off, ready to resign myself to living in pajama pants for the next few weeks, when - quite on a whim - I checked the tag. They were size 6 - my 'skinny' jeans. heh. I'm a dope.

So, the bad news is I'm not fitting as I'd like in the skinny jeans, but the good news is that the 8s are just fine.

Now I must go to the grocery store to buy a tub of Godiva ice cream in celebration gather many nutritious foodstuffs in preparation for the long siege of NaNoWriMo.

Sigh. My size 6 skinny jeans currently can't even be pulled over my hips. Even though I've been working out hardcore for two months. It still makes me a little teary-eyed. But I'll get there. I will. :)

You will get there, sweetling, and so will I.

Mind you, I bought cookies from Trader Joe's today, but how could I not? They're called Druid Circles!!!! How is that not completely awesome?

Druid circles? Oh you HAD to. :)
By the way, you are cordially invited to come with me to Equinox any time for a kickboxing and/or abs class. Next time you're in the city, make sure you bring your gym bag!

I'm out of town this weekend and next, but the following weekend if you're around, I'd love to join you for your class...

November may be fully crap for me, but only because of Family Stuff and NaNoWriMo (I really really really have to write something. Anything.) I'll let you know, though.

I totally understand. However, I must say this: you mustn't neglect your body when you're writing! Au contraire! Exercising regularly really does help with creative flow. It's sort of like magic, actually! So even though I'd be happy to wait till December, I do urge you to keep going to kickboxing while you're nano-ing! :)

When I was in 7th grade my body decided it was a size eight. I can eat like a pig or I can eat nothing, and my ass is like, "HAH! NICE TRY! I'm still a size eight though, LOSER."

I have a pair of jeans that are ripped in both knees, and have been patched more than a few times, but that I still wear from seventh grade.

damn i wish my body had picked size 8....
you don't want to know what size my skinny jeans are...and that they don't fit.

ok, off to wallow in self pity
