At the gym today I ran for 2.2 miles in 25 minutes (not bad, but not all that great either), and burned 371 calories. I felt so tired and my shins hurt so much, that I just couldn’t even finish the whole 3.1 mi (5K). I guess, I could have walked the rest of the distance just for the sake of covering the distance, but I decided that I would rather go workout on the fitness center machines while I still had time left with the kids being in the childcare at the gym. So not too bad. I am still really tired though – I’ve been on my feet most of the day, running around different stores all afternoon, so I’m sure that wasn’t too helpful for my workout.
I did have an exciting non-scale victory today (speaking of scales, I have been pretty disappointed with mine, since I haven’t seen it move in the downward direction in a while). I noticed that all my pants and jeans were getting way too baggy and loose, so I decided to get a new pair of jeans. Now, my previous pairs were all size 16. Imagine my surprise when every single pair I tried on in size 14 fit fine! I was so surprised! But it gets better – I found a pair of jeans I really liked, and size 12 actually fit even better than 14!!!! I was so happy, beyond words – I haven’t worn size 12 jeans in several years. That’s not to say that *any* size 12 pants will fit me, but these ones did, and I was excited! My non-scale victory for today! Yay!
