Since I didn’t show you a picture earlier, here was my work outfit today (I’ve worn it before)

I have the worst time shopping for pants…so I rarely ever by them.  The pants in the above picture are from 4 years ago…and if pants never wore out or got holes in them  you better believe that I would probably still be wearing the same pants from middle school (not much has changed in the hip department).

Usually pants are too short or too baggie in the hips.  Today, we got two new pair of black dress pants in at work.  The style that we all keep hearing about promoting in our store is the long black pant for everyday and mixing and matching it with a variety of different tops.

I decided to go out on a limb and try these pants on.  The first pair was waaaay to short…Steve Urkel anyone??


I tried on the second pair and they fit perfectly!  They hugged my hips like they were supposed to, were the perfect length for heels and flats, and they came higher on the waste so they were extremely comfortable!  I put them on hold because Brian was waiting outside for me, and I think I am going to buy them Monday 🙂  Trust me, this made my day!


Lunch was random again…

Mixed nuts, rice cakes, and veggies.  I also snacked on another Nature Valley granola bar in the back room when I could.


Today was the last official day of running in my half marathon training schedule before the race.  Tomorrow is a rest day and I want to take full advantage of it.  I want to feel my best on Saturday.  I know that I am not competing to win (this time! 😉 ) but I want to be able to feel good and do well for me.  Feeling soreness and tightness in my legs on Saturday would just throw a wrench in things.

I ran about 2 miles and then walked a little bit.  After literally standing all day, my legs get tight and my feet get tired which has such an effect on my running.  It was also in the 90s temperature wise, and I was hungry for dinner so everything was against me.  It is crazy how this run felt physically harder than my 13 mile run this past Saturday, which is all the more reason for me to take care of myself now in preparation!


I then came home to throw a hodge-podge of things together for dinner.  Because it was burning outside, I made a peanut butter banana spinach chocolate smoothie along with steamed cabbage, potatoes, and cauliflower.  Random…but it tasted good!

I know that I am going to fall asleep early again tonight (I slept through the movie last night) and want to get the grocery list made because tomorrow is grocery day, and I am going to Trader Joe’s!  I can’t wait 🙂
