It's BACK!

Oh YES! It's that time of year to bust out THE vest.  If you know me for real or have been following my blog for awhile, you know exactly what I'm talking about.

My 10 year old GAP vest.

You know, the one I wear ALL the time because I am emotionally attached to it and obsessed with it? I was inspired to write this post today because someone at work is always busting on me for wearing it all the time.  He just jokes about me being cold in the office and to take my jacket off.  It's kinda funny but I had to show him why I always wear it.  I think he gets it now...although there was no promise made to stop the joking around. Ha.

This vest is amazing...it's my favorite piece of clothing that I own, and that's saying a lot because I have A LOT of clothes.  It's old and grungy looking but I don't care!  This is why I love it SO much...

Old Me

Ever since I bought that vest I could never zipper it.  It was way too tight around my stomach and def never going to zip at my chest. I just wanted to buy it because it was GAP and everyone was wearing them.  As you can see in the first picture, it def did NOT fit me at all. I think I only wore it because it was in fashion then and it hid my fat rolls on the side. Haha I'm totally not kidding. Wow, I wish I knew then that I could better myself...


New Me
This is me today! And yes, I'm not above a shameless selfie in my cube at work!  See how nicely it zips?  Totally attached...totally never getting rid of it :)



So besides my little vest story, I wanted to talk about the gym this week! I managed to go on Tuesday and Wednesday. Omgggg I'm SO sore. Like so sore that I have been waddling around for two days hahahaa. It's so sad that I am so sore, just proves the point that I need to go to the gym more often!! It felt amazing both days though. I really need to get back to going on a regular schedule again.  I also need to find a new battery for my polar heart rate monitor but am having trouble finding one around here!  Any suggestions?!

  1. That is a completely different look. You and the vest look great :)
    I didn't feel like my Monday workout was really any different, yet I've been hobbling for the past couple days. I feel pretty much back to normal today, just traces of soreness ...

  2. You are so adorable! I love this post. I love that you have the same piece of clothing that you still own and wear 10 years later... that is AMAZING. Because clearly that is some of the best physical evidence I have ever seen of how amazing your journey has already been.

    You are a gorgeous girl.... :) And yes, being sore is a good sign. It kind of sucks hobbling around, but it also feels slightly good too, right ;)

  3. Such a nice feeling when you are able to fit into the clothes you love! so happy for you, I know how it feels, I have lost 5 stone so far and still going. The motivation for the gym can be hard I agree, but I know that if I don't do it, il fall back into my bad habits again. Thanks for sharing Julie :-)
