Run Fat Girl, Run!


I think I will start by telling you a funny little story. Last week, I was working out at BifG. Part of the routine was to sprint down the block to a certain marker and then sprint back. There were many rounds of this. There was a lady who was unloading things from her car and carrying the items into one of the store fronts. I had passed her a few times and on one of my sprints she gave me a cheer. Cool right? Well sort of. Her cheer was:

"Run! Get Those Pounds Off!"

Excuse me? Here I was thinking I looked like a warrior, yet this lady thought she was a counselor at fat camp! She was an older lady and was just trying to be sweet so I had no choice but to get a chuckle out of it. It did make me wonder what I look like when I ran....this weekend, HM took a photo that made me feel like a warrior again.

Careful lady or I will slap you with my defined guns!
I wish my arms always looked this defined! One of the ways I plan to get more defined is to cut down on my alcohol consumption. This is turning out to be a lot harder than I expected. Last night HM and I went to a house warming party at our friends house. They just renovated their house and added a grass roof top to their house. It was amazing to lay up there and watch the sun set with good friends and a drink in hand.....except I had no drink. Well, I had water but that is boring.

This is the roof of their house!
And this is the view!
I was pretty proud of myself for not drinking anything and I sure felt happy about it Sunday morning when HM and I woke up early and went to the gym. At this rate, I will be skinny before I know it (except for my gelato addiction!). I found this silly website, which I am not endorsing as accurate, that will show you what you look like at your current weight and what you will look like at your goal weight. I could not tell a difference, so I will show you what I look like 250lbs......and what I will look like at my goal weight of 100 pounds.
Run! Get those pounds off!
If you want to try it for fun, here is the website. So I have a question for you Sweets. What low calorie/low calorie beverages do you enjoy? I am getting sick of water.....

There Is No Crying At BifG


Walk down memory lane with me, will you sweets? Twenty years ago, there was a little movie called League Of Their Own. Heard of it? Yeah, haven't we all. I remember loving this movie when it came out. Are you old enough to remember it?

Do you remember the most famous line from that movie? It is one I repeat to myself often during BifG workouts......There's No Crying in Baseball!!! Take a trip down memory lane with me will you?

Do you remember Ms. Saucy pants from that movie? No not Rosie O'Donnell. No, not Madonna. This lady:

That's right, Ms. Geena Davis herself. I have loved this lady since Beatles Juice. Thelma and Louis anyone? Well, on the 20th Anniversary of one of my favorite movies, I went to a fundraising luncheon for women in film. I went with my friend Tessa.

The setting was beautiful, the food pretty good, and the guest speakers intriguing. Including Ms. Geena Davis herself!!!

The best part of the luncheon was when my BFF and I grabbed a picture together:

Tessa sucks at focus!
Oh, poor Tessa, I was referring to my BFF Genna. Being reminded of this film, and of Tom Hanks famous line, I was reminded of how often I have to "man up" and get the job done. Just the other day, we had to do the Chelsea workout. Every minute, on the minute, we had to do the following: 5 pull-ups, 10 push-ups, 15 squats....for 30 minutes. By the end, I wanted to cry, but then it popped into my head....there is no crying at BifG!!!!

So I have a question for you Sweets. What is your favorite movie? What is an oldie but a goodie? I am looking for something to stream while pluggin away on the stair climber.
