Ladies only

I am once again living the life I am so good at living - being a lady of leisure. Aaaah. The interview yesterday was fine but not near as important as the interviews I'll have on campuses. Anyway, it's over and so is the school year (nearly), so I'm excited about being off for 3 1/2 months! We hope to visit family and friends in Kansas and Oklahoma over the summer, although none of you really know that. :-)

Over the past week I've attempted to go running with Alan a couple times. Big mistake. First of all I was a little under the weather. Second of all, I don't like to run. It didn't go well and I don't think Alan will ask me to go again. Yesterday I walked a vigorous mile and ran a half-mile. Not impressive, but very necessary if you saw how sad it was when I tried on the pantsuit for my interview yesterday morning. When Alan and I were dating, the pants were too big really and kind of hung off my hips before that style was really a style. Yesterday there was no bagging ANYWHERE. And the top - the TOP was tight. Granted, I was pretty small when I bought this suit a few years ago, but it was still a very eye-opening experience. The other day I had to take a shirt off because of how fat my back looked in it. My BACK WAS FAT. Why can't my boobs be the depository for excess fat? I gotta say - God messed up on that one.

Needless to say, I counted calories, fat, and sugar grams yesterday and will likely do that for a while until I can put those pants back on and at least wear them comfortably. I don't even like them, but that's not the point. I know I'm getting older, but that's not going to be my excuse for the rest of my life. What I need to be saying this year is GOOD LORD I'm turning 40 and need to get in the best shape I possibly can.

So now I'm off to go do this new exercise I saw for love handles that looks very awkward but promising.

I got excited about you visiting in the summer that I didn't even finish reading your entire blog. So now that I have, I must tell you that this one was a very funny post.

I promise I wasn't laughing yesterday. Had I not had the interview to think about and get over, I probably would have cried. Once I got home and threw off that outfit and got back in my comfy stretched out jeans, I was happy. :-)
