Operation "Fit in these Cargo Pants"

So about 3 months ago I purchased these Cargo Pants at Express, they were on MEGA sale! Since I was in a hurry I just picked out my size (the last pair of 8) and ran out the door. Fast forward to when I got home, excited to try them on and to my dismay they didn't fit!!! I had JUST bought a couple of trousers from Express for work at that size and I fit in them comfortably so basically these cargo pants run smaller (or am I in denial?)

I decided not to return them because they only cost me $15 annnnd I figured I will fit into them someday (the woman's common excuse to keeping clothes that don't fit in her closet). Now here I am, summer is almost gone and I haven't fit into the pants. Rather than giving up on it, I decided I would name my latest work out regimen "Operation fit into these Cargo Pants" which complements my other "Operation Vegas" since I'll be going to Vegas at the end of this month.

So for starters, I used to work out A LOT, but have since become a little sedentary with work and life so I convinced myself that the first step would be POWERWALKS! then progress into jogging. In addition I'm going to focus on my eating. 

So here is some cute things that motivate me to work out :) 

The Nike Iphone tracker: You put this censor in your Nike Shoe (there is a certain model that has the compartment to insert it) and you download the Nike Iphone application and it will sync. The cool part is it keeps track of your runs, the calories burned, your goals, etc etc.


The Booty Wrap : This is a faux sweater wrap, it's just the wrap with pockets!! so cool.

Fashionable Workout Clothes: Like these, with color and that give your body shape.

  1. I totally loved this post and the pants - wow, really cool! I hope you'll achieve your goals and will be able to wear these. my suggestion would be to ride a bicycle if you have one, because it's fun and effective at the same time :)

  6. Express is really inconsistent with their sizes... So it doesn't surprise me that what you thought would fit in store didn't once you got home. Skinny Cargo pants are cut on a smaller end but I don't know if you would need to go up one size. You'll get into these and you can still wear them in fall!
