The Case of the Burgundy Pants

  • It's Time to Get in Shape!

You may be thinking “This seems like an odd post”! … And it is. It’s very odd… I’ve actually never blogged about anything quite like this before! But here it goes! I’m hoping that after I tell you the case of the Burgundy pants, you’ll leave me a comment and reassure me that I’m not crazy and that I can definitely reach my goal! So, this week was a little on the busy side and like any busy week, I had my moment of being overwhelmed and so Michael decided that we should use our day off to go to the outlet mall! Retail therapy is actually a very real thing. We literally only do this like twice

a year and so I feel like we can justify it… AND, come on, it’s the outlets!! The more you buy, the more you save!! Right Dave Ramsey?! haha J/k… He would not approve of the last three sentences!!! Michael needed some new khaki’s for weddings and I decided to get a few things for the fall since I have some speaking engagements coming up and sometimes fun to have a new outfit to boost your confidence a tad. Well, I came upon these pants in the Jcrew outlet that I LOVED. I wear A LOT of navy and so I feel like owning burgundy corduroys would be a smart decision. Well, I tried them on and loved them!! Except…. they were a little tight. I huffed and got a size up and realized that they were just a little too big.

So normally, I would take that as a sign that I’m not supposed to get them. If they don’t FIT, that would be the smart thing to do right?! Right. Well, I now have a pair of burgundy pants in my closet that are serving as my motivation to get in shape! GAH! I’m THAT girl! I bought pants that don’t fit in order to get back to working out!!! Oh man. I’m hoping I’m not the only one who has done this!! I’m also hoping that this WORKS!! I now have a VERY TANGIBLE reminder of why I want to get in shape and I want to comfortably wear these ASAP! So, I’m asking you for some help! Here are some of the questions I have:

1. What are your favorite snacks at the airport that are healthy?! I love Sahale’s granola mixes but not every airport has great, healthy snack options! 

2. What is your favorite ab workout that you can do ANYWHERE?! Like, something you can do via your phone and in a hotel room?

3. What is your favorite calorie counting app? In the past, I’ve used MyFitnessPal and I still like it, but I didn’t know if something better had come out! 

Thanks in advance!! I love hearing from you all!! And if you see me wearing my burgundy pants… I’m either doing GREAT with my little diet… or I’m holding my breath:):)

Ps. Just a little update on Bokeh boy, he’s doing MUCH better!! He appreciates all of the love from last friday and we’re looking into all of our pet health insurance options!


xoxo, Katelyn
