Brian cleaned out his closet the other day. Here’s the result…
His closet now has some breathing room and my darling husband is left in dire need of clothes that fit. Aah, the joys of losing weight.
It’s that time again!
My birthday is coming up, that means that I am starting to get questions about gifts.
My wife has asked that I put a list up for anyone who is interested. So here it is.
Belted Longer Length Cargo Shorts from Express. I like these because they are longer than your normal shorts. I am kind of picky about the length of shorts because I am self-conscious about my legs. It’s something I am working on but it will be a while before I am happy with the way they look. Thanks to my recent workout routine I have lost some weight and can now fit into a 32 waist.
Also at Express you can find these great Stretch Cotton Crew Neck Tee’s, I love these shirts. I have three already but would love to get some more. They come in a variety of colors but again, I am picky. I am not a flashy person and bright colors don’t really do it for me. The only colors I like are Heather Grey, Light Heather Grey, Pewter, Pitch Black, Pure White and Utility Green. Due to my weight loss, I can now fit in Mediums.
The new Mortal Kombat for the PlayStation 3, you can find it at Best Buy. I loved playing this back in the day. My wife and I used to invite our friends over and have fight night when I had the PS2. Between the Mortal Kombat series and the Tekken Series we had plenty to keep us occupied. We would compete to see who could outlast who.
Starcraft was one of my favorite games. I would play it for hours, just loosing myself in it. Now they have Starcraft 2. This would be one that I would love to have. Practicality has kept me from buying it. Every time I go to buy a game I think about this one but settle for another. From what I have seen of it, this would be a great game to have.
I have several other things in mind, but these are the things that I just wont usually buy myself. If you’re like me and you don’t feel comfortable buying clothes for someone, gift cards to these locations usually work well. I know I am a 32 waist in Old Navy, but the same may not be true for Express. I have learned that each company does its own sizing. If anything include a gift receipt, that’s what I always do no matter what.
This is what happens when I forget to take my workout shoes back into the house after a workout. I try to wear different sneakers each time so I don’t wear the shoes out too soon. It also helps that they’re different colors to match various Zumba outfits. LOL.
I like the pink and black pair for several reasons: they’re really comfortable, they don’t have shoelaces that get untied in the middle of my workout, and they go really well with almost all of my Zumba gear. The one thing I don’t like about them is that they don’t offer as much support as my other shoes.
The black and white ones are Nike Huaraches. They’re just like the red ones that I posted last week. Gina Ann swears by them. They normally cost $60, but I found them on sale at the Nike Outlet for about $20 so I got two colors. They are very comfortable. If they had another color, I probably would have bought those too. Can’t beat the sale price. I could have gotten three pairs for the price of one!
It’s not really impractical because I workout a lot. So it’s not like I won’t get good use out of them. I Zumba five days a week these days. As long as there are no other obligations that keep me from attending, I go to Gina Ann’s classes on Monday and Wednesday nights and then also on Saturday morning and Amie’s Thursday night and Sunday afternoon classes. That is what I love about Genesis. They have Zumba fitness classes every single day of the week. The YMCA has Zumba almost every day of the week too, but their classes are way too crowded. I like that we’re not packed like sardines in Amie’s and Gina Ann’s classes.
My training sessions with John will be on Tuesdays and Sundays going forward because the training sessions after Zumba on Mondays and Wednesday are killing me. This means no turbokick on Tuesday. Sorry, Amie. Not like I’ll be able to keep up, anyway. Besides, it’s only temporary. Once I get in shape, then I can start attending turbokick. I have to work my way up to it first. I can’t wait until my body is stronger!
Brian looks really good in this photo. Don’t you guys think so?
Brian went shopping for new clothes today because he’s lost quite a bit of weight.
He can actually fit in medium shirts and size 32 pants again. He hasn’t worn 32 pants in years!
Way to go, baby!
