This morning, I had a horrible thing happen...
My jeans ripped. At work. Where I didn't have more jeans or pants.
Know what I did have? A fleece jacket (pretty much part of the required uniform in Colorado). So I quickly tied it around my waist and went into my boss' office. I started to say that I had an emergency and that I needed to take an hour off. But instead I told him the truth - which was basically that I had an emergency and needed to leave for an hour). He was understanding and I went home to change.
They didn't split in my thigh area, but rather in the butt. And after I took them off at home I still didn't see a stress part where it stemmed from. It's not like these were especially threadbare, so I'm not sure what happened. These jeans weren't tight on me (no shoehorn needed to get into them!), but they weren't baggy either so I really am stumped.
Know what I do know? I need to buy more jeans. And I REALLY hate that idea since I already have TWO new pairs of jeans in the closet that I can't fit into.
This actually is good though. Because after losing two pounds this past week (YAY!) I decided that even though I want to continue to pay attention to my food, what I really need/want is to move more. And I know myself well enough that I need to have a goal or I get lazy about exercising.
I actually have two goals. But the first involves a certain little lady who yells.
I promise (to myself mostly...but putting this out there means that I'm more likely to not squelch on the promise) to sweat with Jillian for the next 30 days, starting today.
I've done the shred before - and even done it consistently. But 30 days in a row? Not so much.
I know that Jams and Debbie did it. So I know it's possible. AND I know that my body will love being able to do something positive. My mind will love being able to accomplish a goal - one that isn't tied to a certain number of calories eaten or pounds lost.
Joe knows about my goal and he promised to be in another room while I'm doing it if he's at home. AND a good friend from college is coming to visit me on the 18th of next month...so I'll have completed this and won't have to worry about the conflict of a guest.
I know I'll regret writing this tomorrow...but I'm kind of excited about spending this much time with Jillian.
What about you - any short term goals you have that you're willing to share?
