Stuff We Would Kiss On The Mouf: Part One Of ? Part Series


So, after seeing a number on the scale that I haven't seen in over 10 years I am for real with the whole "okay, I mean it this time" and am working on losing 12lbs in 12 weeks for a big event in October. I'm so there.

And, no, I'm not THAT big of a freak that I have me weight written down from 10 years ago. I just happen to know b/c in January 2000 I set out to lose weight for my 10 yr HS Reunion that Summer. I was so not gonna be the girl that went back all fat...which I was. That's the Prom Queen's job. So, yay me, I lost over 40 lbs from January to July that year and killed it at the Reunion. I kind of rock.

Fast forward to this last year...personal drama has sent me into emotional eating and general laziness. Great combo. I highly recommend it if you want to feel terrible! You can do it! Ask me how!

So, I'm on a mission (3.5 lbs down from last Monday by working out and not eating everything not nailed down...holla) and thus am starting a new series:


Things I Remembered I Loved Now That I Saw That
HOLY CRAP I HAVE GAINED TEN POUNDS
number on the scale.


Spin Class:

Okay, not all Spin classes. I specifically stopped Spinning when I moved to St. Louis because I didn't like the instructors. Yes, I'm a Spin Snob. I got spoiled when I lived in Columbia and had awesome teachers and the best classmates evah at our 6am classes every day. I also had a markedly better view from behind. In fact, Shan calls me "Pooper" because I told her the story of a guy that told my then boyfriend, "She has a great pooper" one time when I left the table. It is important to note that A) that is disgusting and B) the guy was a redneck coworker and NOT a friend. Stay Klassy Koworker.

Anyhoo, after waaaaaaay too long away from THE MOST EXPENSIVE GYM IN THE WORLD (that's for you, Shan) I finally thought I'd give it a try again.

Enter the Saturday morning teacher.

Cue Luther Vandross. (R.I.P. Luther.)

Oh, Shelley, I love you. I love your music selection. I love that you don't just sit and climb the whole freaking hour (talking to you Monday night teacher). I love that we get to sprint because, let's face it, I'm really freaking fast. I love that I feel like a complete and total badass on a bike that doesn't move since I never learned how to ride a bike growing up. I love that I sweat like a donkey trekking around the sun's surface.

I'll see you in 2 more sleeps. I can honestly say, I can't wait. Merci!

xoxo,
Ames

You go girl with your Spin class. Please, take one for me, too. I have only done Spin a few times in me life, and told the friend I went with if I fell off the bike to just leave me there until class was over, so if you can do Spin, go ON witcho bad self, mama. I will stay with TurboKick and Zumba, thank you very much.

There must be something in the atmosphere! My girl friend and I were just discussing our respective gains of 5 El-Bees! And when you're our height, that might as well be 25. Gotta Get Sexy Back!!
