Size 14! A Birthday and Another New Experience!

I haven’t posted for a few weeks since the 5K, but life has been moving forward.  I’ve been continuing my nutrition and exercise for the most part.  I don’t know why, otherwise busy life events, but I haven’t kept up with my couch to 5K training but I’m still doing all of my usual Zumba classes, weight training/toning class and yoga/pilates fusion class.  Nutrition has been pretty good, with the exception of a few days I had “girls’ nights” with a friend plus my birthday dinner out.  My weight is mostly staying the same, but people keep commenting that I must be losing (even people I don’t know well!) which has been great.

For my birthday, my husband gave me a gift card for a clothing store I only recently started shopping at so I went shopping for some new work clothes and was excited to discover that I was able to buy 2 dresses and a skirt in size 14.  I honestly can’t wrap my head around that number so it was exciting.  The next day, I decided to go shopping for some new underwear and that was a new experience too!  I actually walked into a real lingerie store, and didn’t get any strange looks.  Bought myself 7 pairs of new underwear and got them home and was actually surprised that they fit.  I don’t know if anyone out there understands my joy, but it was huge for me!

So, it’s been a great couple of weeks.  Now I just have to kick my own butt as far as getting back to the running training.
