God Bless the designers at American Eagle. The new "boy fit" line they have come out with for this Spring fits me in a size 4. FOUR!!! Yah, I know---It's a false sense of achievement. I know I really wear a 6. But hey...anytime I can squeeze my booty into a 4, I'm a happy girl---no matter WHY it fits. Sadly, I wasn't crazy about the high-waistedness of the "boy fit" so I passed on buying any. Apparently--according to the sales girl they're meant to be worn in a "sag like a guy" which is why they run a little bigger and are a little higher waisted. Whatever. If I wanted the crotch of my pants to be hanging around my knees, I'd just borrow a pair of Matt's old jeans!
Anywho...I have had a fabulously succesful day so far. Demi sent me a wonderful note this morning that gave me an idea. I am going to start replacing lunch with a protein shake. I can't skip my breakfast and I can't skip my dinners...so lunch was the only feasible option for skippng. Today was my first day and I feel great! I had my shake at about noon and then I had a Pure protein bar (180 cal) and a small banana at 3:00.
I went to the gym this morning for my normal ball/core class and then 45 min. of Zumba. Just now Matt and I finished Core Syn. In all, I burned 853 calories today. I think if I can keep that up and substitute the shakes for my lunches...I could be on the way to my goal weight! Yay!
Of course..there is always a speedbump in the road. We are leaving in a couple of minutes to go to my parents house for dinner. I will really have to be careful of what I eat so I don't mess up all my hard work today. Wish me luck!
