Ok, I just need to rant for a few. Why is it that it is so difficult to find exercise clothing in fat sizes?? I mean, come on!!! Who needs the exercise the most, but people who need larger sizes? I have played softball forever, and I have my first game of the season tonight. While driving home from work last night I decided to stop at a store to buy some warm up pants or crops because it is still a little chilly for shorts. (I have a lot of shorts that I bought last summer, but mind you, but they are MEN's because I couldn't find any in women's sizes that were long enough) But I digress... The largest size I could find anywhere was an XL. Now, I know larger sizes can be found, but usually at a store like Lane Bryant, and they want $20 - $40 for them, and HELLO, if I am exercising I am going to be losing weight, so they won't fit me for very long, and who wants to spend that kind of money for that?!?! Anyways, I ended up not buying anything and digging through my closet and drawers and found an old pair that fits me again that will suffice for now. I am really not that upset, because it will be warm enough for shorts soon anyways. It just all seemed a little ironic to me. I mean, I don't know about you all, but when it comes to me and exercise, any excuse that comes up to NOT exercise can easily side-line my best intentions, and not having something comfortable and half way cute to wear while doing so fits that bill. Oh well... At least I am 80 lbs lighter and the pants I wore last year are huge and baggy instead of tight and squishy! Maybe I could try suspenders, and just pray that they don't fall down while rounding second base. Thanks for letting me rant. Have a great day everyone! :)
- I am a killer softball player, and I have a spontaneous soul. I love to walk outside in my socks, I think because we were all told when we were young to not go outside in our socks, and now I buy my own socks. Some of the simple things in life that bring a quick, easy smile to my face are: finding a funky new font, little shoots of green pushing their way through the dirt in spring, driving through BIG, DEEP puddles and putting Bugles Snacks on my fingers and pretending that I have long fingernails.
