Wear more pants.

This is one of my resolutions this year. Wearing a lot of shorts, my legs got darker and more prone to scars and bumps. Ever since I slid back from regularly dancing, my intense training, work-out and body conditioning stopped and I started gaining weight. My huge thighs and muscular legs have become even bigger to the point that my brother would keep on calling my legs as "logs". :( (ouch, haha)

Urgh, depressing for any girl right? Though I couldn't fit in them anymore, I still kept my old pants, wishfully thinking that I would be able to wear them again. Though I seriously need to buy new ones now, I'm still psyching myself to exercise religiously in order to be more fit, loose my belly and regain my flat tummy.

Notice that these trousers totally make my legs look even larger (me even shorter). According to fashion rules, pear-shaped girls like me should stay away from high-waist pants because they tend to emphasize the thigh part. However, rules are made to be broken every now and then; plus, I love how these comfy pants let my legs breathe!
