    Bought myself some calipers last week to check my body fat percent, which I calculated as 25%. Not bad. Reread instructions on taking measurements and remeasured: actually 19-20% body fat

    had a crappy day dealing with car trouble/work stuff at the same time. The old me would have taken comfort in fast food or something else horrible... but no emotional eating today. Waited until dinner and enjoyed a salad and rotisserie chicken. Days like this used to derail me... now all I'm worried about is fixing the car situation so I can get back to lifting heavy things at the gym!

    I Did a Pull-Up! A real one! Woo!

    (For what it's worth I credit doing planks and slow push-ups as part of my brief yoga routine (almost) every morning, hoisting heavy preschoolers regularly, and doing occasional negatives with actually making the goal. So excited!)

    I've worked my way up to probably 90% of a girlie pushup (couple months ago, WALL pushups made me tired). I get get to about 2 inches off the floor. Pretty stoked. My shoulders hurt like a bitch today though.

    I am into my second week of crossfit. I never thought I'd be able to do a work-out in front of other people--I was always just so fat! This morning I did something that I thought I'd never do. I went running. It wasn't the fastest or longest run, but I still ran! In the past, my asthma would have flared up and I would have had to puff on my inhaler a few times, but I am realizing I don't need an inhaler any more!!!

    Well a couple months ago, I finally got to go shopping for a smaller pant size.
    I had been wearing a size 18 for the longest time. Actually probably should've moved up to a 20 when I was at my heaviest a few years ago.
    I'm now a size 16 and even they're starting to feel loose on me. WOO!
    14 here I come!!!

    OMG! Husband says i now have 'dat gap'. It's when you see that triangle-shaped hole between your thighs and crotch. I never had thighs small enough for that! Ridiculously excited for something so small, but still.

    I just got back from a yoga workshop, where a guy there told me I looked beautiful. HUH?!

    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    I bought jeans with a 29 inch waist today. They fit perfectly.
