It is tempting to still wear them even though they don't fit right anymore. It is tempting to keep them 'just-in-case' or because you can't bear to give them away, having spent good money on them. But storage is at a premium at my house, so today - out they went! The people at the Smith Family will be able to choose amongst Laura Ashley, Country Road, Adidas, JAG and Verge (that's the one that really hurt : www.verge.co.nz ), and that is just from my dresser draws - I am yet to go through my wardrobe. I threw out anything 'L' and anything higher that a 12. I was still holding onto some stuff that I had bought right after I had my last baby 5 years ago!
In other news - Magic Hands Margaret (my Massage Therapist) figured out and sorted out a niggling lower back pain that I had not been able to shift for the past few weeks. Turned out it was my Lats that were actually causing the grief. I am so relieved and please to be able to push on with the training with my new Lat stretch. I had been avoiding boxing which I love - thinking that the twisting and impact of the punches had caused the issue.
My next fitness goal is to prepare for my skiing holiday in New Zealand in June/July. I am only a 'beginner' skiier, but I want to be able to have lessons and enjoy myself at a level I could only previously have imagined :-)
