Enter Usher and Real World analogies because I'm about to take it to the confessional and things are going to get real.
If I'm gonna tell it then I gotta tell it all...
On Saturday I put away all of my summer clothes and brought my winter clothes out of their suitcase/storage in the closet. There is definitely something exciting about pulling out winter items that I haven't seen in six months...it's like shopping in your own closet, and it's free! There's also something really sad about putting away summer dresses that I didn't get to wear this year because of my chubbiness. Le tear.
But - that's what this blog is for, right? Getting my chubbybunny tail back into shape and sharing it with you! Therefore, I'm making a pre-New Year's resolution to keep hiking and working out through the winter, no matter how miserable the weather gets. I've already lost about 14 lbs. since August and NEXT summer - when I'm sitting secluded in an edit suite because of the looming election - I will be in the cutest dresses known to fashion. By that time, they'll be a few years old and I'll start referring to my wears as 'vintage.' I can see it now.
You heard it here first - I have another 15 lbs. to go to get back to what I've referred to as "My 2009 Body." Slowly but surely; one hike at a time; other motivating cliche here. Thanks for letting me share this goal! Something about putting it in writing makes me positive it will become a reality.
And feel free to call me on this next June. Thanks.
