Success...is measured in the small things

Today is my 200th blog entry, so don't forget to enter my Joint Giveaway with Katie! You have until Friday at 5 PM Pacific!


Over the past year (more specifically the last 6 months) I have been packing on the pounds. Some call it the newlywed weight, I call it the "newlywed-transitional-changing job-leaving friends-not liking new job" weight. And as you know from this post, I have started to work on those love handle-thunder thigh issues that are plaguing me currently. I finished Week 5 Day 2 today and it felt great! I love that I ran 8 minutes (twice) and didn't die. Small steps people! Tomorrow will be my 1st 20 minute run in a while, and I want to thank everyone that gave me song inspiration! It has really made a difference!

Anyways, I have been feeling great and my clothes are fitting better (instead of resembling casing on a stuffed sausage). So in honor of this I wanted to share with you a conversation I had with the hubs yesterday.

Me: My scrubs are finally getting looser

Rhett: That's good

Me: Yeah I know, I no longer have to stretch them out with a squat when I first put them on

*I then demonstrated what I meant to the hubs, and he couldn't stop laughing*

Success in the small things people! At least the morning workout makes up for my poor food choices during the day!

Happy 200th post and that's great..I still have to do the squat thing but Big Man did mention that I was looking a little slimmer so hopefully he's not lying.

Congrats on 200 posts. I did couch to 5K this fall and I loved it. Didn't lose any weight but I can run now!
