For starters this has been a rough week. I have a sick 4 year old and now a sick 2 year old at home. Its Thursday and I haven't been to the gym yet during the day this week. I did a pump class Tuesday night. (Monday I tried to workout, drove to the gym in the evening, couldn't get a good parking spot and drove home.) So I have taken Monday and Wednesday as my two days off. I aim for 5-6 workouts a week. So that means that I have to work out every day from here on in. Today...I will sneak off to the gym for a quick run as soon as Ryan gets home. Friday I will have to workout at home. I think I will do Bob Harper workout challenges from his site. Work on some from toe push ups! Its all about making it work right.
Onto other things. Our family is going on a DISNEY CRUISE (DREAM OF A LIFETIME) at the end of February. Last night I went through my closet to see what I have to wear. I bought most of my current 'summer' wear on a shopping trip to the states last year. I spent a good chunk of coin on some beautiful clothes at Layne Bryant. Well those clothes are falling off me now. Good I guess :) right? But now what do I wear on the cruise? I guess I have some shopping to do.
But here's my real dilemma, what do I do with the clothes that do not fit? I feel like I should keep them in case I gain weight. BUT WAIT A MINUTE...do you want to feel like that again? Can you imagine living a couch potato life again? Don't you LOVE feeling strong and fit and keeping up with your kids? But what IF something happens? What if I get hurt and can't work out...what if....
Then there is this embarrassing truth. I lost weight on WW a few years ago and gave my old clothes to a freind. Then a year later I gained all the weight back and nothing fit. Now the clothing I gave my freind still didn't fit her, so I asked for it back...OH MY GOSH IT WAS AWFUL TO DO THAT...thank goodness she is such a good freind or it would have been even more horrible.
So you can see why I am reluctant to empty my closet of my 'bigger' clothes. Then the rational side of me thinks, you have these beautiful clothes that are not being used.
