To celebrate I bought a new set of workout clothes. I desperately need some new stuff. The clothes I'm wearing to exercise in could probably stand on their own with the body stench that is permanently stuck on them. That is...if they weren't so worn out and holey.
Don't worry. I work out at home. No one gets to see this mess, except my children. Poor things.
Anyway! New clothes! Yea! And guess what they're made out of?!
Bahahahahahahahahaha! I think I'm hilarious for being a big old fat hypocrite. It was only three measly days ago that I said I didn't intend on wearing spandex.
But I couldn't resist. It's just so breathable and flexible and gosh...almost kinda sorta flattering. My bum never looked so supported.
I couldn't wait to try it on. I looked in the mirror and actually smiled at what I saw. So I thought I would be brave and take a picture so I could finally share a picture with the blog. But...my husband is out of town and the children aren't exactly photographers. We tried, but I just ended up with blurry body parts.
So I tried to shoot a few myself in my bedroom mirror. And when I looked at the pics I was rather embarrassed. Apparently what I am seeing in the mirror isn't what other people would be seeing. The spandex isn't as "hawt" as I initially thought it was.
Thus...I'm not ready to show you a bunch of pics of me in it.
Kind of dumb really. I'm willing to tell you my weight, but not show you the pictures.
Okay. For reals. Ugh.
This was my attempt at not showing off my church lady arms.
Let's just get this over with. One day I can look back at these and see how far I've come.
Oh it gets worse. Wait for it...Wait for it...
And the side view.
That was the hard picture to see. I mean--not only is my room a mess (do laundry much?), but look at that gut. I know it's not as big as it used to be, but sheesh... I've got some serious ab work ahead of me.
Onward and upwards, my friends. Onwards and upwards. (Too bad my poor saggy boobs will never get to that last part.)
So! Now that I've mutilated and humiliated myself in front of the world....
Something I did great this week: I CAN RUN 30 MINUTES WITHOUT STOPPING! Sure! Maybe you look great in spandex, but CAN YOU DO THAT??!
And something I could improve upon: Abs. Gotta break down, lay down, and get down to it.
