Hey 2016. Does anyone else still feel weird writing that? I do! Where on Earth did 2015 go? I am still trying to grasp that. Plus, this school year is FLYING BY (and yet dragging on in some aspects) compared to last year.
I still have to take down all the Christmas decorations. Anyone with me on that? No? No one else still has their tree up? #itsarealtreethatineedtogetridof #noonehelps #allme . That is the plan this weekend since I have the weekend off from work. I LOVE decorating for Christmas but putting it all away is so tedious and time consuming.
I got a Fit Bit for Christmas and it has been really interesting to see how many steps I do a day, how many calories I burn. I also love that you can track your sleep. The first time I wore it, it said I was restless 19 times in one night! Holy cow! I wanted it as part of my mission in order to lose weight/tone up. It is my goal for 2016. I know a lot of people say that every year (I am guilty of it) but I really need to. Why? BECAUSE PANTS SHOPPING FOR SCHOOL IS THE BANE OF MY EXISTENCE! I probably gained in the waist which makes pants difficult. It actually makes me feel like I am suffocating at times because they are so tight. I have tried multiple stores...Target, Old Navy, Loft, Ann Taylor, Gap, Banana Republic, NY&CO, Kohls, Dress Barn.
So I am reaching out....where do you all buy your dress pants?!
Also in my quest for new dress pants comes my quest for workout clothes. I *need* to join the gym and I keep saying I am going to do it. I think Friday I am just going to bring gym clothes to school and change into them and then drive straight to the gym to join on my way home from school. Therefore I can't have an excuse. BUT WHY ARE ALL GYM PANTS SKIN TIGHT? I would say I am "blessed" in the big butt department so I don't want pants that are sticking to my butt as I am attempting to run on the treadmill. I just got a 30% off to Kohls coupon so maybe I can find something from there. I at least want 1 to 2 pairs and then I will get some shorts for the spring/summer.
Also, who is in it for the Power Ball? We are pooling money together at work to buy tickets. Everyone is joking that if they win they are retiring early! Haha! I would be happy if I won anything. I also saw this on Facebook and had myself a good laugh:
