Finally! I’m Back In My Skinny Jeans!
I got these great pair of black denim jeans in South Korea 3 years ago and wore them all the time. Granted I was in Korea and my diet had drastically changed. I was waiting for my husband to come home from a deployment in Afghanistan so I kept busy by working as an English teacher in an elementary school during the day and at night, spent quality time at the gym and hot yoga studio. (I need to write a separate blog on going to a hot yoga studio in South Korea and being the only foreigner in the place…In-ter-es-ting to say the least).
I watched this inspirational video on thebeautyuprising.com by Kat Kim that motivated me to aim high for my weight loss goals. Kim talked about something that was so obvious yet something we never let ourselves do, think positive. We talk about how we can’t have a flat tummy or can’t get tighter arms but what if we just cut out the “can’t” and went for it? Well I did and I must say it’s worked for me in so many ways. I used to say “I can’t run 2-3 miles a day are you crazy?” well, now I do. “I can’t do yoga poses like that, are you nuts?” well, now I am with the help of these AHHHamazing youtube yoga videos by Sadie Nardini.
It’s not easy by any means and I still have a long way to go. But I’ll take this small victory of getting back in my skinny jeans as a highway marker that I am on the right track to getting to where I wanna be!
