Forever in Bluejeans
I've always been a denim lover...in fact the Recessional at our wedding was "Forever in Bluejeans." Quite a few of my milestones have been marked by my blues (such as here & here & here).
Since I've exhausted my stash of "Someday" jeans, I decided tonight was the night to treat myself to a fresh, new pair. It turned into quite the red letter day. Here they are, with the jersey I treated myself to now that I'm close enough to goal to feel like it was worth the money:
All of this comes after a spectacular fail on Sunday in which I consumed 2/3 of a sleeve of Reduced Fat Club Crackers with what I'm estimating to be 3/4 cup of peanut butter. *blurg* Emotional eating is still alive & well, but here is my take away: I am not defined by my actions on one lousy day. I am defined by the accumulation of my actions over time. Not that the size on my pants is a defining thing in my life, but it is a tangible reminder of that which is: my hard work, effort, & determination. And there's NOTHING blue about that!
