I went shopping for new jeans today. Not because I really HAD to...I have probably a dozen-ish pairs of jeans. But I had noticed that lately, they weren't fitting quite right. They were too...loose. Wait, that doesn't sound right...the scale isn't moving. My legs and my rear end seem bigger, although I haven't measured in a while...But yep, sure enough, my jeans are too big. So, today, I got my first 2 pairs of SIZE 4 jeans since high school!!! Size freakin' 4!!!
Also, I did my second full 5k on the treadmill today in preparation for the mess I've signed myself up for in the upcoming months. I cut 3 minutes off my time!! Granted, I've just been walking. I don't wanna run until I get running shoes, but still...I feel like it's progress.
Oh yeah, I don't think I mentioned it- after I do this first 5k in April, I signed up for the Baltimore Color Run on May 11. I'm super-excited about this one. I'll be running on a team with some people I haven't seen in a few years, and it's supposed to be just a really fun time. Check it out- http://thecolorrun.com/baltimore/ .
Anyway, the moral of the story- hard work pays off.
