The Best Day Ever {or how I got in a 6!}

Before I let you in on my secret you wanna see a before and after??
Huh, do ya?
Well, it more of a halfway and almost there....

{174}
I remember being SO EXCITED I got my butt in some bling jeans!

{149}

I mean, 25 pounds makes a big difference. 
And I'm just saying my booty definitely looks better :)

Oh and BTW, these jeans are SERIOUSLY the most comfortable, well fitting jeans I've ever owned. 
I don't even want to rip them off as soon as I get home and put on sweats, they are amazing!

While I was browsing at Kohl's, I just randomly started picking up different jeans to try on. One brand I was looking at didn't have any 8's so I grabbed a 6 just for kicks.
In the dressing room I ALMOST didn't try them on because nothing can ruin a day like not being able to button something your trying on in a dressing room.
At home I can handle it, but in a store, that shit better fit.


They fit AND they are skinnies.
Holy Heck, how did this happen and I'm still the same weight I've been FOREVER??

*Edit- click here to see which black jeans I bought!

I'm going to tell you what my secret is for squeezing my ass into a size 6, but not losing a pound.

Are you ready?

Squats.
Yes, a shit ton of squats. Lunging ones, jumping ones, baby ones, booty back all the way ones.

We alllll know I'm a pear shaped gal, I've come to terms with it. I'll never look AMAZEBALLS in a pair skinnies and that's OK {well, kinda}



The goal can't just be to 'get skinny', there are plenty of skinny girls who are not healthy or in shape.
I want to TONE, I want a new SHAPE, I want to kick ASS. 

Legs are my worst features, but my favorite body part to work at the gym.
Cardio alone won't cut it, if you want to change your shape then you need to
a. lift weights
and\or
b. plyometrics

You can't get these guns on the treadmill.



Maybe, just maybe if I keep squatting my ass off I'll be able to wear a pair of colored skinny jeans.

See, sometimes that scale IS a lying whore :)

Need some motivation to get squatting?
Besides my amazing butt?

Happy Hump Day!

  7. Great work on all the squatting! I am also a firm believer in squats....I am hoping all the ones I have done in the past several months help me in my marathon this weekend! You have literally worked your butt off and it shows. Keep it up!
    I am loving your Fall decor and it motivates me to get mine out of storage and decorate!

  9. Meggy Meg I am loving it. You are awesome and look fantastic. I love those VW skinnies and those pink Macy's ones you could totally rock. I think after this half - I am accepting your 200 squats. I too love squats and planks - my two favorite excercises. WTG.

  10. SOLD! I'm doing squats with my weight training from now on!

    Hey, congratulations on being a SIZE 6!!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yay! Congrats! I so badly need to start lifting. I get plenty of cardio in everyday but I never lift. I need to get someone to show me how to lift safely and correctly. Love the jeans! It makes me sad because my 5'11 self cannot do anything with a 32 or 34 inch inseam, haha!

  13. What a fun surprise in the dressing room! Congratulations! And I think I may try out the 200 squat challenge after I finish my 30DS. Jillian is currently turning my thighs to jello.

  14. WooHoo, that is awesome! Go on with your bad self. Size 6 is one of my goals and someday soon, it will be mine. I don't know if I can work up to 200 squats, but I did it with crunches, so why not?

    Seriously, you look amazing and you deserve that smaller size. Love Chris Farley, btw, too funny.

  32. I can say this only because I am the mom of 3 daughters and butts are a frequent topic of conversation as my girls need compliments and reassurance. I don't want to sound creepy. This is what I would say to one of my girls.

    Your fanny is adorable and you look fabulous in skinny jeans. You ROCK those jeans and you should be proud of those cute buns after all your hard workouts.

    In our home we call them "biscuits" because when our girls were young their fannys were too small to be buns - so they were biscuits. :)

  33. Was thinking about you when I was doing squats last night!!! Hurts so good today.

    ReplyDelete
  34. That is so awesome! WAY to go! You should send me your old jeans since i'm your before picture! ONE day i'll be your after picture (and you'll be a whole new after picture)and i can send the jeans on to someone else!

  36. I just found your blog and may be doing a little stalking :) So glad I found you because my legs are my problem area too. I need to go through your posts and figure out what you did to get them in shape.
