Still resting my back… starting to get boring…. BUT, I did go on 3 long walks with the dogs today so I am feeling pretty OK about things. Its nice to get my heart-rate up walking up the hills 🙂
In other news, I got new jeans 🙂 If you don’t know I’ve been living in yoga pants for about 4 months since I tore my last pair of jeans and then moved out into the middle of nowhere with no one to ever see what I’m wearing. Anyway… I am down a size!
A year ago I weighed 155# and bought a pair of Levi “Demi Curve” jeans, size 10. I loved the crap out of them and wore them every day, getting tighter and tighter as my quads and ass grew. Eventually, I split them in half with my enormous squatter’s ass. I have basically been wearing yoga pants (or some other really shitty pants) since.
The other day I decided I should stop looking like a bum, so I sucked up the motivation to buy some jeans online. I was nervous about my size because I had put on 10 pounds while lifting over the past year and I knew my ass was getting giant. Because I wasn’t sure, I ended up buying sizes based on the size chart – it was like like 31 or something like that. I didn’t know how this translated into normal sizes, but I assumed it would be a 10 or 12. I went with the Bold & Supreme curve to accommodate the larger ass.
I just got the jeans in the mail today and they all said size 8 on the tag. I got nervous that they were going to be too small and I’d have to send them back. I tried them on… AND THEY FIT (with room to spare)! First time I’ve been comfortably in an 8 since college… and I easily weigh 10-20 pounds more!
P.S. I would highly recommend the Levi Curve ID jeans for anyone struggling with an extreme thigh/ass to waist ratio. These fit me very nicely.

Scored 14 points on better habits challenge. I did go on an EXTRA walk though, so maybe that should bump be up to 15 😉
