Despite my misgivings, when I saw a cute pair of gray yoga pants with a fold-over waistband at the NEX a couple of weeks ago, I had to have them. Why? Because they have pink bunnies on them, just like the hoodies my sister and I wore on my wedding day. They're from the same designer.
I splurged on the pants while Jason was gone because I met a goal: getting my weight under 200 pounds. While it has since gone back over that line (thanks, cupcakes and pizza), we've started going to the gym together and I think I'm a workout or two away from being back in the 100s zone. My workout today went well; I did a mile on the elliptical in 10:05, and my two-mile pace was only slightly higher. I know I can do better than that, so I definitely have a non-weight goal to work toward.
I'll leave you with what Jason said to me in the car on the way to the gym this afternoon, when I asked him about hooking up my headphones to the TV receivers on the machines:
"You just have to keep sticking it in the holes until you find the right one."
(Here's an explanation of TWSS jokes for those who aren't in the know.)
(And if anybody else remembers that commercial in the subject line in which a man with an accent says "I come to this country with one pants and map of Kentucky," please speak up, because I can't remember what the ad was for but it made me laugh every time.)
