Thursday Thoughts 7.19.12

[1] Guess what I am? You'll never guess.
I am a Victoria's Secret Model. No, you did not read that wrong. I am.
Well, I mean, kind of in a sort of round about way.
Yes, I did take a picture in the locker room after my work out today.
We have the same pants. That's right, Ol' Vicky and me got very much acquainted these past few weeks as the Semi-Annual Sale was going on and they kept sending me coupons and I couldn't not use them because it's like wasting money, right? So, I went out on a limb and bought cobalt blue pants. [Among, plennnttty of other things, trust me.]
I was really nervous about them, because well, they are blue. And not in the denim way. [I'm a blue jeans/t-shirt girl all the way.]I think I may try a yellow shirt next time for some colorblocking...we shall see.
I love clothes. I love shoes. I'm just not very brave in my wardrobe choices when I'm out in public. I buy a lot, but it mostly sits in my closet until I can play it safe somehow. But the more I lose and the more I work out the less I seem to worry what other people may [or may not] think of the clothes I am wearing. Which is great for my self-esteem, not so great for the wallet.

[2] I have a local 5k this Saturday morning. I keep going back and forth between the "DUDES, I'm gonna PR [personal record] the shit out of this!" and the "What if my chub rub attacks my thighs, I forget my deodorant and crap my pants instead!" emotions. It's getting really annoying.
[3] I haven't talked much about my Insanity adventures lately because after month 1 I stopped so I could prepare for this 5k. Running & doing Insanity at the same time was just not working for me, so I gave up one. But next week I go back on the Insanity train for my last month and then I start working on my first half-marathon training plan. Suggestions & help are welcome!
Help me.

[4] I don't know if you use or have Twitter. But if you don't, you should. [I'm @Tamara0827 ]I used to be a hardcore - this is some stupid ass shiz, who wants to read that crap - but, I definitely prefer it over FacePoop. And lately, I have been absolutely loving all the random, fun tweet conversations I've been having. Life's motto should totally be - If you can't say it under 140 characters, you shouldn't say it at all.

I vote for PRing the shit out of the race.

I could have written the same thing about clothes! I just got a couple pairs of colored pants/shorts but I always end up playing everything safe!! They look great on you!

Adrienne said...

You look amazing! Let me know if you come up with more blue-pant pairings, because I have a pair I have NO idea what to do with!

Also, you're going to do amazing in that race! AMAZING! Whoot whoot! RAWR! You've got this!

Sar said...

I love those bright blue pants! They would look good with a bright yellow, don't go all lame with a light yellow! Do it, do it, do it!

<3 <3 You're wonderful and will PR the shit out of this race!

Katie said...

I'm the same with clothes. I get so jealous of people with their fashion fierceness, cause I feel like such a pansy! :)

Happy Thursday!
