Summer of 7: Day 3 of clothes

Day 3 has been pretty good. Took the kids swimming at the Y and wore my swimsuit.  I weighed my options: Cheat a little and have an enjoyable day with the kids or be a legal eagle and go stir crazy in the house and break my promise to Viv.  I voted to cheat.  Everyone is happier because of it.

On a good note, the tight jeans from yesterday are much more comfortable today.

One interesting part of the day was doing the Muscle Toning class at the Y wearing my Converse.  I mean, it could have been worse.  But boy was I ever thankful that I usually have the option of wearing some nice running shoes.  The Converse weren't terrible.  But they were very flat and my toes were all squished.  Plus, this is my vain side coming out, I looked a little ridiculous.

In the end the shoe thing is meaningless.  There are children in parts of the world that walk many miles every day with bare feet just to get clean water or food or to get to school.

Lord help me to stop thinking about myself so much!


  1. many crossfitters wear converse while training!

  2. Wow! I feel so surprised by that Lisa. Why do you think that is?

  3. I'm loving reading your thoughts on this as you go. I'm smiled as the "I looked a little ridiculous" remark :) Way to go for going anyway! I probably would have just skipped it all together.

  4. Thanks Jamie! This is such a fun way to do it. I love knowing that I'm not alone and there are so many others striving towards "less stuff, more God". Plus I've really been wanting to blog more and this has made it so much easier for me.
