I knew it was coming, but today is the day. You make me look ridiculous. I can’t count on you to support me. And this morning, you made a fool out of me.
No, I’m not talking about a bad boyfriend. I’m talking about my favorite Adidas workout pants!
When I bought them around the end of 2010, I was thrilled. They were the first pair of anything that I’d bought in a size XL in years; I was thrilled to be out of the “plus sizes,” even if only in workout pants.
I bought two pair – black and navy – and they worked with all of my workout shirts. They saw me through lots of hard training sessions with George and Danny, and when I wasn’t training, I wore them to exercise on my own.
A few weeks ago, I noticed that they were getting baggy, but I figured that would just make them even more comfortable and kept wearing them. But today, they betrayed me! I was bending over to pick up some weights, and they slipped down too far for comfort.
I suppose that I can still wear them for exercising; they shouldn’t give me any trouble on the elliptical, but I think it’s time for new pants for training days.
It really is a great sign of my progress, but it’s like saying goodbye to an old friend!
