If Your Scale Manages to Lie To You...

... your pants won't.

I was running late for conference today, where I was scheduled to give a lecture. I dressed up in my only clean (and brand name) suit because I also had a (side job) interview after the lecture. Yes, the pants were a little snug coming up over the thighs, and yes, I had to hold my breath to get the hook to attach. But never did I expect to bend over to get my lipgloss off the floor and hear RIIIIPPPPPPPP!

I spent about 3 minutes feeling myself up looking for the dreaded tear in my pants. But, it wasn't there. Fortunately for me it was just the lining... and I ran out the front door just in time. Still... I should have known better than to stuff my heavier self into those tailored pants.

On a brighter note, I ran outside on the track today. I couldn't bear the thought of going back on the treadmill today. The weather surprised us and got up to 45 today with some sun. So, I ran about 2.6 miles in 30 minutes. Ten minutes running, 1 of walking (twice), followed by 8 more minutes of running to round it out. That's the first time I've run 28 minutes during my interval training!

I am so excited, and what's better, I felt like I could have run at least another 1/4 mile with ease.

  1. Oh my! I'm so glad it was only the lining that ripped. Ugh!!

    Great job on your run!!
