I'm wearing size 8 pants!

I'm really intrigued and thinking about going over to NY & Co sometime soon to try on more size 8 pants.  Part of me really thinks they must be mislabeled, I mean every other pair I have or have tried on is a 10 and fits fine.  I'm just having a hard time computing that I could fit in single digit sized clothing.  I haven't been this small since high school.  Of course I had to wear the only size 8s in my possession the day after buying them!  My OOTD is: a brown ruffle sweater from Ann Taylor Loft, brown (size 8) NY & Co dress pants from Burlington and brown ballet flats from The Gap.
Our bananas only have a few days left in them and I wanted to squeeze in at least one more bowl of oatmeal = 321 calories.  Although I'm not sure why I feel so much pressure to use them, I could just use some other kind of fruit, lol.
Work was fine, nothing exciting.  I got a lot accomplished and just tried to lay low.  It seems like everyone is a little stressed out with all the changes so I figure it's easiest to stay out of the way.  For lunch I had my usual 311 calories at my desk.
Angela is back from her trip to Texas but had a lot to take care of so I was on my own for my 3 mile run.  I started with the treadmill set at 6.0 but that only lasted about 1/4 mile before I realized I couldn't maintain that pace.  I turned it down to 5.7 and stayed there the rest of the time.  I'm pretty proud of myself! 
I had taken some chicken out for dinner so I baked it with some shake n' bake glaze.  We had a lot of broccoli in the fridge so I steamed some of that as well.  I couldn't decide what to do for starch, while I was cruising the pantry I came across a box Tastefully Simple cornbread mix, I decided to give it a try.  Dinner = 586 calories. 
The chicken was very good, I didn't put anything on the broccoli so it was pretty bland and the cornbread was a little dry.  I had about 6 servings of cornbread left so I brought some over to Nicole & Lou because Joe & I would never finish it all.  Poor Jack has croup so he's been a little hard to get along with, he was little whiny when I was visiting but I'm whiny when I don't feel good and I can tell you what's wrong with me so who can blame him?  I hung out for about a 1/2 hour then went home figuring Joe would be home soon.  I was surprised to see him sitting on the couch when I walked in the door!  Apparently he'd been home almost a half an hour watching hockey.  I joined him on the couch but after a few minutes I was feeling pretty sore and couldn't hold still so I went upstairs, took care of a couple loads of laundry and watched an episode of Dexter.  I really wanted a snack, something terrible for me, but I used all of my willpower to only make a bag of popcorn = 75 calories.
Joe's game was over about the same time, Flyers won!  We watched little Biggest Loser and passed out a little after 10.  Wow, not a very interesting day...

  1. YAY SIZE 8!!!! You know, they just had their "buy 1 pair, get a pair for $10 sale". You just missed it. Ugh. I might have a coupon you could have. Anyway! So excited for you!

    And way to go on the nice run!

  2. Yeah I'm thinking they were probably mislabeled. I mean seriously I'm a 10 everywhere else. I'll have to go out to the mall and try some more on sometime...although I don't have free weekend time until my birthday, lol.
