This could be bad news, but it's not! I had been enjoying my indefinite vacation this week when I got a call. The guy who they hired for the job I was temping "did not work out". So I'm going back tomorrow for 4-8 weeks! haha the 3 days that I have not been there were wonderful. Full of relaxing, working out, and hanging with friends! Although it is quite weird that I just said goodbye to everyone last Friday!
In the meantime, I spent too much money for my own good! I got some new clothes and am very happy about them. Always love find work pants that are less than $20, and when they need to be hemmed, it isn't a big deal or budget breaker! My fave pair of work pants were about 6 inches too long. I got them for $6 because people generally don't buy pants that need to be hemmed. They are pretty much perfect otherwise. Ooh and I got a dress! I RARELY get dresses. I only have 2 other dresses -- one from my sister's bachelorette party and one from her wedding! :) It is a rare find to grab a dress that can tame my boobs and not make my stomach look pregnant or just generally terrible.
I decided to put my bento box idea on hold for now. I got something else instead!
|NEW WORKOUT PANTS!|
I'll be honest. My other "workout pants" which are yoga pants from target, involve me pulling them up about every 5 steps if I am walking/running. I have the problem of a big stomach and that makes my pants go south (big stomach combined with no butt!) and my shirts go north. So, I desperately needed something that I wouldn't have to worry about. I wanted to take a pic of them on me, but felt embarrassed to ask the Coach, so I asked SwimTot. Oh yes, photography by a 4 year old:
Okay, maybe her pics were better - haha! I walked for 1/2 hour on the treadmill and did my strength training in these and they were great! The only bad part was when I was doing hip adduction and abduction and they seemed to fit funny in the crotch at that moment. But if that was the worst thing, then I will take it!
When I came home, I had a delicious taco salad with a little spanish rice and potato salad. I only had potato salad because I was excited that it was 1/2 off. I did have to put more mustard on it (which is what looks like a piece of macaroni) just not tangy enough!

I may not have gotten the yardage right. I always have a hard time counting my yards when I am swimming!
That makes 5 workout days in a row! Go me! I am taking a "rest" day tomorrow because I am going to work them watch my fave lil man.
