Let’s start with the fact that I have been tagged…twice! Both Kristii and Jocelyn tagged me in this fun little game of “let’s see just how bad I can look in a photo”! Just warning you. If this picture leaves you scarred, don’t blame me…it’s all their fault!!! lol!
Actually, I think this is a pretty cool idea. The point is to grab your camera and take a photo at the exact second you realize you have been tagged. Well, lucky me! I was at work without a camera when I discovered I had been tagged. Of course I waited until I got home to snap this lovely little photo. And you know I had to ham it up a bit. Even with some lag time to prepare myself, the thought did not occur to me to touch up my makeup or slap some color on my totally colorless lips. I think it’s obvious I am not a connoisseur of Revlon Colorstay 12 hour makeup. lol! And since I cannot tell a lie, this is actually the second (ummm, maybe third) photo I took. The other two really were frightening. I had this wonky eyebrow thing going on. Don’t ask…you really DO NOT want to know.
So now it is my turn. I tag Antonella, Lisa Spiegel, Lisa Houpt, Peggy, Mandy and Ellen. OK, chickies, let’s see them mugs! I’ll be stalking your blogs more than usual in anticipation of seeing your lovely little faces!
In other random news, Lydia and I were finally able to begin month 3 of our ChaLEAN Extreme workout. We are two weeks late starting due to the fact that Lydia had to be out of town for work. We continued to workout, we just repeated workouts from months one and two.
(Pause for commercial break.) If you want a hard core workout, one that gives results like no other, one that is as fun as it is empowering, then ChaLEAN Extreme is the one for you! (Back to our regularly scheduled program.)
This is a pic of all the weights I use. Yes, I can be a bit anal. I do keep them all lined up. Just makes me feel good. Notice how they are not only lined up, but turned so the numbers are all facing the same way? For those of us with obsessive compulsive tendencies, this rights every wrong in our world. Can I get an amen? To prove just how strong I’ve gotten doing this workout, take a look at this next pic.
That’s right. Twenty pound dumbbells, baby! All of my chest, back and lower body exercises are done with these big guys. If you think I am bragging, all I can say is, you bet your sweet patootie I am. This has been the hardest I’ve EVER worked. And I’ve had a few personal trainers in the past whom I’ve labeled Workout Nazis. So please forgive my moment of self infatuation…I’ve sooo earned it!
Before I leave you for today, I must also give a bit of blog time to my newest friend. Meet …uhhh…the treadmill?!?!? OK, so I stink at naming inanimate objects. But I love him/her/it just the same. After saying my farewells to my last running machine, I realized just how much I missed taking out my frustrations on this highway to nowhere. So I bit the bullet and bought a new one. This is my way of reaching my goal of running a 5k this year….late, late, late this year. I’m really, and I do mean REALLY out of shape cardiovascularly.
I guess I will be signing off for now. BTW, if anyone has any suggestions for a name for my treadmill, I’m all ears. I’m thinking a studly name might make me want to climb aboard and give it a go a bit sooner than a girly name. But I’ll leave it to you guys to help me out with that one. Thanks, as always, for all the incredible comments! You guys absolutely rock!
P.S. Late breaking news!!! GO HERE NOW for a fun giveaway! And please tell Pinky the crazy lady sent ya…that would be me! But you actually knew that, now didn’t ya!
