i did make it to the gym. i stayed till i hit my 500 calories then headed home to spend jasons last free evening with him. (his first class is today at 430.)
40 minutes 3.35 miles 500 calories
(edit: i also mowed the lawn yesterday. so that makes for a little more calorie burn.)
but more importantly, i am for sure in a size 14 jean now. i got out my second pair this morning and they are comfy and new feeling, and i love them.
