What do you mean these socks fit me?

I bought a pair of Tinkerbell Christmas socks back in 2007, when I worked for Walmart. It was a combination of my love for fairies, socks, and it being Christmas… The only problem, they didn’t fit.

Yesterday, I was able to wear them as they were intended to be worn. It was amazing. The art wasn’t overly stretched, they didn’t leave horrible impressions on my legs from where they were being held up, and they actually didn’t fall down, either! I was so ecstatic when I took them off yesterday. My husband didn’t understand. What that means to me is that I can wear all the socks I love getting, and not really worry about if my legs are too big for them to be worn. That is an amazing feeling. :)

When I last posted, I talked about being sore. Well, I believe I gave myself delayed onset muscle soreness again. I was sore all the way through yesterday. Instead of doing belly dancing and kick boxing, I ran up and down my stairs. On Saturday, I only did it 10 times, which takes about 12 minutes. Then I vigorously cleaned my kitchen, and logged that as exercise (hey, an hour of that does get you going). Yesterday, I decided (uh…after eating 2 sugar cookies) that I was going to run up and down the stairs for 30 minutes. I succeeded in doing so. I took a break after every 5 so that I wouldn’t be too dead each time. I managed to do it 20 times, equaling 20 flights of stairs I went up and down. Holy shit. I used to get winded at TWO. I really have come a long way. With that in mind, I decided that instead of doing the soft belly dancing video on the second day, I was just going to run up and down the stairs for 30 minutes. That way, I don’t have to worry about hurting my upper body too much with the belly dancing toning videos I’m doing. I burn so many calories doing those stairs, too, that I should see some good weight loss going.

Yesterday, I went over my carb limit. A little expected when you have 2 sugar cookies. I felt horrible. :< However, the rest of the time, I have been under. That makes me super happy. Even though My Fitness Pal gives me more carbs to eat with the exercise I do, I try to not eat them. Same goes with the extra calories it gives me. Good for a buffer, but I really do try to stick to just under 1660 calories if I can. :)

Christmas was a little depressing. It was the first one without family. We Skyped with Chris’ mom, called his dad, talked with my mom on Twitter…but I still felt really left out. We got some money and spent it on a few things. Even bought us a couple Mjolnir pendants. Chris got me Portal 2 socks and a couple shirts I can wear when I finally get skinny, I got him a shirt, we got each other a $60 alarm clock (for $40)… We have a little extra money because of his work so nicely paying double time for yesterday for anyone that was working OT instead of just time and a half. Might get a couple other presents today based on that. We will have to see, though. :) Still waiting on a reply from the husband. Sock Dreams is having an awesome sale today, and I want to take advantage of that with a couple of their cheaper socks (was able to get one, more expensive pair), then get him a special surprise (that I can’t say on here, because he can read this at work…) Ghost Story by Jim Butcher. So, other than being depressed with no family, Christmas ended up being much better than we expected it to be.

Today, I am likely going to go to the store and the library, though I might put it off until tomorrow… I need to go soon, though, before my On Hold books are pulled off the shelf! If I go tomorrow, then I can go to the post office, too. ;)

Sorry for the long post! Didn’t realize so much happened over the weekend! My next post will likely be on Friday. I dislike posting 2 days in a row, so I will hold off on my day off post until my weigh day. :)
