If The Pants Fit, Buy ‘Em

Happy Valentines Day Everyone!

Hopefully you all had a good valentines day full of self appreciation and love, regardless of relationship status.  Wine and Hallmark channel were my go to Valentines Day dates for many years and they served me well. 

This Valentines Day, after by boyfriend left for home, I decided to treat myself to some pampering at the nail salon.  It’s been almost 2 years since I had a manicure so why not!  I even threw in a sparkly nail for kicks.

After nails it was off to Kohl’s to make my yearly jeans purchase.  To my delight I am down a jean size!! Woo hoo finally some affirmation from something other than the scale.  I was beginning to question my sanity!  Sometimes the mirror plays tricks on the eyes you know.

When choosing jeans I made sure to pick the same Jean brand and several styles to make sure it wasn’t just wishful thinking.  The key to measuring via clothes is to try on the same brand.  I can wear about 4 sizes in dress pants so trust me, I know it’s frustrating when you are an 8 in one pair and a 12 in the other.  Stick with some consistency! 

My quest to eat healthy and do yoga paid off well so I have started a 10,000 step journey.  I have created a 30 day Challenge for myself of 10,000 steps a day.  It’s shocking how difficult that is.  Sitting in the car all day means I have a lot of walking to do when I get home.  If it would get warmer I could walk outside but then again maybe my house wouldn’t be as clean.  I have washed my kitchen floor more in the past 4 days than I have in the past year and I force myself to walk in place during “My 600 lb Life” because if they can do it, so can I!

Hopefully I can keep up this 10,000 steps/day and be even more empowered to keep going.  If anyone wants to join me, the more the merrier.  Catch you next time.
