The FRT and the Mom Jeans

It's time to get serious about fitness.  The reason I'm out of shape this time is because of my rotten tooth.  One little tooth can really drag a girl down.  I have to stop saying "rotten tooth" because it's grossing me out, but I guess it isn't an exaggeration, it is a tooth and it was rotten enough to have a root canal.  I suppose I could call it my formerly rotten tooth.  Or I could just stop mentioning it at all (stop screaming "PLEASE DO!"  I can actually hear that.)  I'll just call it the FRT for short.  (Formerly Rotten Tooth) 

The FRT really took a lot out of me, and sure, most of it was pure hypochondriac drama brought on by the 8 year old inside of me that runs my life, but still.  When my whole face hurt I didn't have the energy or motivation to exercise.  Actually, on the realm of excuses-not-to-exercise that I've had in my life the FRT is more substantial than many of the others, most of which were some variation of, "Don't wanna." 

It's Friday, so it is casual day at school.  When I was getting dressed, the pile of pants in my closet literally squeezed out a pair of jeans from the middle and I thought it was a sign that I should wear those today.  I got them at a garage sale for 50 cents and they still had the tags on them!  They were from the Gap and they are men's jeans, but that's okay, I can live with that for 50 cents!  Judging from the style they must be from the 80s but if they are I don't know how they've retained their vibrant blue color over the decades.  They're not blue so much as they are BLOOOOOOOOO!!  And the waistline goes almost to my rib cage so it's kind of like I'm wearing a girdle.  They take about ten minutes to unzip because the zipper is so long.

They are ugly. 

 my pants actually go a little higher than these

But 50 CENTS!  For Gap Jeans!  Never worn!

Wearing them seemed like a good idea this morning but by this afternoon I couldn't wait to get home and change into my old dirty, stretched out, expensive, fat jeans that respect the muffin top and don't squeeze my intestines until it sounds like I'm smuggling a flock of pigeons in my guts. 

I got the Jillian Michaels DVD 30 Day Shred and I think I'll start using it. Not today, (because it's Friday) but soon.  I think I will actually try to do the entire 30 days in a row and see what happens.  Also, I'm going to start watching what I eat and try to eat healthier.  Not tonite, (because it's pizza night) but soon.  I also promised Kira we would get a Frappe from McDonalds, so probably not tomorrow either. 

Or maybe I'll just throw the ugly tight jeans away.

    You will LOVE the Shred. 30 days=10 lbs. And I'm not even lying. She kicks your a$$ for 20 minutes, and you feel like you got hit by a car. But you're used to it since you've been living with that pain we won't mention.


I would love your comments.
