One Hour of Bliss

I've been working on lightening my load for the past two years. It's been quite the challenge and harder than I'd expected for sure. I've hit several plateaus and had to work out longer, increase the intensity of my workouts and alas, cut calories. The calorie cutting has been the hardest of all. For whatever reason, getting my hiney to the gym has been much easier than watching what I'm eating. Really it's how much I'm eating more than anything.

Anyhoo, I went to Old Navy yesterday looking for some summer bottoms as most of the ones I have are too big. Can't complain about being in that position, however new clothes happen to cost money and I'm a cheap one these days. All the shorts were on sale, but of course the linen pants I wanted were not.

When I tried the pants I was was thrilled and would have paid twice as much for them because they were size I was about 8 years ago! Which shall not be revealed on the internet. I'll just say I've lost approximately 40lbs and am feeling full of myself. The full of myself part is causing quite the expense these days, but I think I'm worth it.

When the weather clears up I'll have Robby take some pictures of me in the garden, which is also looking really awesome these days. I'm bragging and it feels good :)

Holy Craps and stuff, that's Awesome Regina! Of course I'm totally jealous, I would kill to lose 40 lbs! I guess working out would be nicer then killing.

You go to the gym! I don't even have littles, I can't find the time! Well done Missy! I too am cheap. I never pay more that ten dollars for anything, except shoes, then I would pay a weeks salary. Now get your skinny butt a shoppin!
