A Bad Outfit Can Ruin a Workout

I headed off to the gym expecting to do 5 miles this morning. That didn't happen... my outfit is to blame. Remember the other day when I told you about the new yoga pants I recieved from PV Body? Well, I've been living in them. They are amazingly comfortable & you will never want to take them off. Thus, as I headed off to the gym, I just kept them on. (Yes, I'm a scumbag.) The outfit looked fine & the pants fit fabulously. What could go wrong? A LOT. 

pants: cozy orange. tank: gapfit. hoodie: victoria's secret pink.

In the course of 1 mile, I pulled up my pants more than 25 times. They're too low waisted to hold in my love handles & they kept sliding down. At the one mile point, I decided there was no way that I could continue on with my 5 mile plan. (Which really ticked me off because I was feeling strong.) I moved to the elliptical & pounded out 45 minutes on that. So, I've ended up doing more cross training than running this week, but at least I've been active. 

When I opened up the gym locker that I was using today, I saw this note... 

You are doing amazing!! Keep it up! 

I thought it was so nice that someone was hoping to inspire someone as they headed in to workout. I definitely want to pay this forward and am going to bring a note with me on my next trip to the gym. 

Last but not least, I have to tell you that I am very happy today. Why, you ask? 
Because tonight, Jillian returns to the Biggest Loser! 

I love her brand of tough love and would pay mega bucks to have her whip me into shape. I can't wait to see what she does with the new contestants this season. I think she'll be awesome with the teens that they are featuring on the show, especially since she really struggled with her weight at that age. 

Who is your favorite Biggest Loser contestant ever? 
Mine is Tara, from the green team. I think she was on Season 7. 

Bob or Jillian? 
I think your answer to this reveals a lot about your personality...
