operation: skinny jeans.

Diets and I have a love-hate relationship.  Well, actually… we mainly have a hate relationship, and I think that’s ok. 

Last night, I was going through my closet and attempting to gather up old clothes to give away.  As I was peeling away the layers in our closet, I was more amazed by the minute just how many clothes we were able to cram in there.  It reminded me a little of the clown cars at the circus… I mentioned that comparison to Josh and he just shook his head and sighed.  I dont think he likes clowns.

The highlight of the quest was when I parted the last row of clothes and found an entirely new row of clothes that I hadn’t seen in 3 years!  I’m talking old favorites here, things that I used to wear all the time.  Somehow, they had gotten lost in the great clothing abyss that is my closet.

So- in my excitement, I immediately grabbed my old favorite jeans and tried them on.  They were.. ehem… slightly snug.

Considering my budget is also a bit snug these days, finding old clothes is pretty much the closest I will come to shopping (cry.)… and what fun is it to buy clothes a size too small?? i will fit into those jeans again.

Enter: Operation Skinny Jeans.  Yessss! another blog challenge.  You will notice that I give myself alot of challenges because they motivate me, and I lovegoal setting… almost more than chocolate.  Considering my current predicament, I think it’s safe to say that chocolate has a special place in my heart.

Let us take a moment to travel back to my former “diet” days.  I ate so many rice cakes and grapefruits.. I’m not sure either of those things will be consumed by me ever again.  I was that type of dieter. 

So, considering I hate diets- I’m coming at this from an “un-diet” perspective…  The plan is to take it a month at a time- I am just going to focus on healthy choices and consistent exercise.  I figure I will weigh myself once a week, but if that gets too stressful, I may just wait until the end of the month.

At the end of the 4 weeks, I will re-evaluate and see if it needs a little tweaking 🙂 As always, I will keep you posted!

Man, I love challenges.

the girl.


...................................
I am 23 year old girl who loves Jesus, playing guitar and listening to James Taylor with the windows down.

Getting married at 19 has its ups and downs, but so does owning two dogs who like to eat socks and countertops for breakfast.

I am all about goal setting and making life easier, so I hope this record of my journey will inspire you a little :) growing up fast can make things interesting- but I love every tough minute of it.

this is basically a collection of all the things I don't know, and my quest to figure it all out. I am learning to navigate through marriage, music, my career, the laundry and my Jesus.. it should be a fun ride :)

The goal is to move forward and keep truckin'...

whatcha looking for?
