30 Day Shred (Week 3)

So, this week of the 30DS challenge has been... I don't want to say completely failed but ... I think I only did it 3 days.  BUT!  I did do some sort of workout everyday.  I am proud of the fact that this challenge has pushed me in the right direction of working out daily.  For Pete's sake, I got up at 5:30am 3 days in a row!  That is one thing that I've never been able to do... get up early in the morning to workout.  I always hit the snooze.  I felt energized at work after an early morning workout, too!  I also don't feel so pressured in the evening after the kids have gone to bed to have to get in a workout.  Usually, by that time I am exhausted and ready for bed.

After my workout in the gym, yesterday. (sweaty!)

Last week, the other girls doing the shred decided that this week we'd post a picture of what we'd like to fit into.  I don't know why, but my goal clothes are usually a pair of jeans.  Someday, I'm sure it will be a cute dress...I guess if you count the dress for the wedding that I am working to fit into, I am now!  Anyways, I immediately thought of an old pair of jeans in my closet.  I have a pair of jeans in the next 3 sizes down in my closet... excited to fit into, soon! -At least one of those still has the tags on them.  So, last week I dug into my closet and put on a pair of jeans... a pair that is actually two sizes down from what I'm currently wearing.  They zipped a little and didn't button shut.  I got them back out to try on again so I could take a picture wearing them.  I pulled them on, and with a little work -lol- got them buttoned and zipped.  The don't (obviously) fit well, but I can't believe that I was a size 28 not that long ago and those jeans are a size 22.  I think I'm going to keep up with posting my goal clothes... it's kinda fun!  I wore my swimsuit under so I'd be sure everything was covered while showing off the jeans.  Also, I didn't have anyone to take the picture (except Brayden and I tried it and it didn't work- haha)  so, I had to set the timer on my camera and set the camera on the counter, that's why it looks a little funny.  I have a ways to go before I'd wear them in public but... it's not jeans weather anyways!  Maybe by the time it is they won't fit! in too big! :)
Size 22 jeans that *almost* fit!
