Hooray for Smaller Pants!

I had a great workout at the gym again yesterday.  Did a half hour on the elliptical and then a half hour swim in the pool.  It always amazes me how great I feel after I have worked out.  Tonight I get to do another awesome Aqua Bootcamp class should be fun!  

Yesterday as I was packing clothes to wear post workout into my gym bag I decided to brave it and grab my smaller pants.  I typically have been wearing a 22 but have numerous size 20 pants in my closet.  So I grabbed a fabulous pair of size 20 dark denim jeans.  And I have to be honest I was a little nervous because we rushed out the door and then my brain started talking.  What if they don't fit? You didn't bring anything else with you?  Eventually I realized that worse case scenario I'd put on my yoga pants back on; no big deal.  So I did my great workout, had a shower and the moment I'd been waiting for was there.  I slid my legs into the pants and THEY FIT.  They were not even tight just a nice comfortable fit!  I was so excited.  There are many a day that I am grateful that I am the only person in that locker room.  I did a little happy dance and headed for home.  

I can't explain why but I know that for me fitting into clothes that have long sat in my closet collecting dust are way more exciting to wear then new clothes from the store.  Not that I don't like new clothes, I do, but I am saving the shopping moments for when I have no clothes in the house that fit me anymore.  And that day will come very soon I think; as 20 is the smallest size in my closet.  

Alright well I am off to enjoy this raining day.
