Happy Dance? Why? Because a) it’s Friday and I’m looking at a three day weekend; b) the temperature has dropped below 100 degrees again – in fact, it’s below ninety!; and c) I pulled out my jeans to wear to work today and they DIDN’T FIT!
Usually, non-fitting pants would send me into a snit, complete with self-loathing and a day spent in a foul temper. This morning I just grinned, jumped up and down all over the bedroom and dragged my Husband out of the shower just to show him the FOUR INCH gap in the waistband! Seriously! I haven’t worn jeans since summer began back at the end of March, and these were really, really tight last spring. They were so tight that I couldn’t wear them all day long without being majorly uncomfortable. I tossed them in the floor, pulled out an old pair of size 12, non-stretch skinny jeans and oh-my-gosh they fit. They fit LOOSELY!! I can do situps in these – sit cross legged on the floor – probably even do a back flip if I knew how to do a back flip! I am grinning from ear to ear today!
I have officially completed the Learning to Run Program and can now run a 5K. I did the final training segment yesterday and finished in 41:23 minutes! Need to shave two more minutes off the time and I’m ready for the race in October.
