Is that ME?

Random thought for the weekend.
I was getting ready for bed last night, and happened to catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror. I wear jammies with short bottoms when spring comes (yeah, I know, wishful thinking but they were clean). There in the mirror was a girl with well defined thigh muscles. Wait, what? That can't be me. I have thick thighs. "Well padded" as my husband likes to say. Who is that girl with muscles and why is she wearing my jammies? Who knew, I might actually SEE some progress? I was getting discouraged since I hadn't lost a single pound, nope, not one. I have actually gained weight, making me give up on the Roller Derby Workout challenge (well, that and the fact that I couldn't do the workouts with my stupid knee and actually walk the next day).
Yay for muscle!
OH! And, congratulations to Wasatch Roller Derby for a crushing win at their first sanctioned bout of the season! Go Midnight Terrors!


  1. Congratulations! I've also gained weight since starting roller derby, but getting more muscular and thinner in the right places.

  2. isn't it magic! I've only managed to lose a paltry 6 pounds since May and my discovery of Derby but gained thigh and calf muscles where there were none and taken 3 inches off my waist. I'd gladly put the 6lbs back on if I can continue on my path to strength :)

  3. You go girl! Your legs are lookin super sexy. Keep it up!

  4. YAY for thigh muscle definition! I have gained weight, but my pants fit differently. Now if only my gut would become well-defined :)
