Butts, Guts and Clothes Shopping :-)

This morning I felt a little sore from yesterdays hilly run.  I did a run for four days in a row and my body/legs are feeling it (yesterday was my long run at 5.27miles).  Even though I was/am sore I was able to get to my Butts and Guts Class this morning.  The hardest part of the class for me is the ab portion.  I'm never able to do all of the ab exercises... that is until today.  My abs felt like they were on fire but I was able to push through it and I didn't have to modify the ab exercises.  I'm getting stronger!

I must say I did have an embarrassing moment in class today.  I was running late and was in a rush to get to an empty spot in the section of the gym the class is held.  I had the mat, weights and my water bottle in hand (my water bottle holds 24oz BTW as I drink allot of water when I workout).  As I was running to my spot I dropped my water bottle and out pours the water!  I then drop everything and run in and out of the gym a few times to get paper towels to clean up.  This was all happening during class warm up.  I guess you could say my warm up was doing sprints back and forth to the paper towel dispenser.  Good times.  During one of the sprints I had a little bit of comic relief.  One of the fellow classmates asked me if I do windows :-)

After class I went home and got a little one on one time with my son K~,  then made some lunch and got my son M~ down for a nap.  After M~ fell asleep I went out shopping for an hour while my husband and son K~ vegged on the couch and watched a movie. 

For a little bit of background info:  My friend Gwen who is much taller than I gave me some size 8 jeans to have shortened.   For jeans I've been wearing a size 10. 

It's funny before I lost this amount of weight I hated shopping.  It was always stressful and a disappointing experience when trying on clothes.  I could never find my size (20 petite in pants when I was my largest) and when I did they didn't look great on (nothing looks great at that size IMO). 

Today I had fun looking at dresses and jeans.  I didn't have allot of time so I decided to just try on some jeans.  The size 8 jeans my friend gave me I tried on at home so I thought why not try a size 6?  They fit!  Granted they are a little snug but they fit.  I have 12lbs left to lose so I figure they will fit me perfectly with a 5lb weight loss.  The joys of shopping!  I remember growing up having a hard time finding clothes for school due to being chubby.  I never want to return to the old me that's for sure.  No matter what.
