Yesterday we took the kids to an egg hunt at a local church (yes, the second one of the season! HA) It was a LOT of fun! I actually wore a shirt that I have NEVER fit into! I bought it almost 5 years ago. I bought it because I absolutely LOVED the color, but they didn't have any in my size. I figured "I can lose this baby weight pretty quickly" so I bought it. Whatever. 5 years later and I still have that baby weight, and then some! Well, not anymore! Pete took a picture of me in the shirt and I'm really blown away! I actually look almost normal!! Take a look!
I still have a really fat and saggy lower belly - that never seems to go away. I wonder if it's actually just excess skin? I dread having to surgically address it some day, but I have to be realistic!
After seeing how good this shirt looked on me, I decided that I would wear a skirt and heels on Easter Sunday! I can't even REMEMBER the last time I wore either! I have proof!!!! This skirt had not fit me in at least 4 years! The shirt is a 2x! I can't even remember the last time I wore a 2x!
Today when I ran I wore my new race shirt! I have never worn a technical shirt before! I wasn't sure if I should wear it - it's a lot tighter than I'm comfortable with, but I really wanted to try it out! I'm not sure I like it, I felt really hot in it. Once I got outside it felt really cool and refreshing though, so I won't pass judgment until I get a chance to run in it outside! I also wore my wicking headband for the first time and I LOVED it! I didn't have to wipe the sweat from my eyes once! The only thing I didn't like was that I was constantly having to reposition it, but I can live with that! Here is a pic of me in my tech shirt! I'm going to do my progression pics in this for a while!
I'm so excited to be back! I was starting to worry that I would never get back on track if I didn't ditch this cold soon! Thankfully I didn't gain anything back so I can just pick up where I left off! I'm back in black baby! (running pants!) Thanks for reading! Have a great night! -Monica
