(That's "here" for the dialect deprived) For some reason I carry my stress(?) *shrugging right now*-annoyance(?)-frustration-other-people-bothersomeness(?)in my shoulders. You know how when you go get a massage, they ask you where you want them to concentrate? (Lest we forget, I don't like massages because I don't like being touched by strangers like that. But from the one time, and from what I've seen on tv, I know they ask that. I gave Jade a hug when I met her yesterday when I met her. I think that was surprising to her. Lol. I can't help it. I'm southern and I feel like I already know her. Blogs make people feel oddly familiar. I definitely referenced Amber in conversation even though we've never met. This was after I'd already talked about the bloggers I know. X. Seriously tho. We need to rectify this. We have the same alma mater, both know the big headed one. HOW DO WE NOT KNOW EACH OTHER!!)
There I go again. What is it with me and the parenthetical statements longer than the paragraph it resides in? Silliness. The point of that was to say I hold it all in my neck and shoulders. AND IT HURTS!! Jade noticed me wiggling yesterday and asked if I was okay. I guess. I'm so used to it that I barely notice I'm wriggling like a 5-year-old in a 4 hour church service.
While searching for that back in the day post, look what I found! My gym goals! What an excellent time to revisit them! I joined November 2, 2006! Yay!! I hit my year w/o a congrats from Bally's. Those jerks. Here I am coming on the regular, just a workin on my fitness, and I don't even get a WASSUUUUUUUUUP!! Whatev. They probably wish I wouldn't come so often. It'd be free money since they take the fees right out of my account. Not me! I work hard for the money! (So hard for it honey)
In case you didn't read, here were my goals, "lose 7 lbs., have abs like Janet, well-defined arms without being cock-dies (that doesn't look right either, that's dies as in short for diesel), that line in your outer thigh like Andy McDowell that only shows up when you've been working out. Just to general be sleek and short (there ain't but so long I can get at 5'1... so the illusion of long)."
Let's run down the list!
1) lose 7 pounds: Check! I lost 13.
2) abs like Janet: Maybe not Janet, but they look Jam good! My line sister said, and I quote "Wow!! You're my new stomach inspiration!" *drumroll* "It used to be Beyonce." AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!! I love her. That's my dog. My poodle.
3) well-defined arms: pretty good. I want them to look a little different but they definitely have some definition. My college homies used to always make fun of how I would stare at the line in my arm in the mirror.
4) outer thigh line: no. I do lots of cardio, and some leg exercises but this isn't one I have down. And you know what? I'm okay with that. The other day I was looking (I'm a bit obsessed with mirrors and it only grows worse when I workout.) at my thighs to see if I had the line and it wasn't there. I said to myself, I may never have it. That might not be in my composition but THAT'S OKAY! Cuz I look Jam good!!! Jaaam. (say that like Will Smith on that hilarious episode of Fresh Prince.)
On a partly related note... I've been watching a LOT of Fresh Prince lately. Enjoy.
