I still managed to get my walk in last night even though I was on a "no exercise strike" and having myself a little pity party. But then the guilt set in and I had to do something!
I wore my favorite workout pants (they are so my favorites that I have patches in the inner thighs where I burned them out over the years). They are a 1x and when I fit into them again this time around, I felt sexy in running pants!
But last night, something really wrong with them. Like, too big wrong. But I love the length on them and like I said, they are my favorite pants. But it wouldn't be pretty if they fell down while I was walking. I noticed them being looser lately but not this loose.
I tried a safety pin to pull them tight up around the waist but it just wasn't secure enough with the material the pants are made of. Looked around, looked around, what could I use? Then it dawned on me, a binder clip!! One of the big chunky ones!!! And guess what, it worked!! I gathered the fabric up and made it a little thick by folding it over a couple of times and then clipped it on!
I grinned during my whole walk. And thanked my lucky stars when I got home that there wasn't some type of medical emergency that the EMTs had to respond to and find my binder clipped patched pants!
It made my whole night. And I might do it again this week. It's like having a fun little secret while I look "normal" walking around my neighborhood. I just hope the next one is as successful without revealing my secrets!
