No more fooling around . . .

Happy April Fools Day?!?

For me, today could not be a more awesome day to start something new . . . it's the first day of the month and it's a Monday. OMGawd, it's like the perfect storm for a slightly OCD, self diagnosed perfectionist.  Holla!

So . . . I re-upped on an 8-Week Body Transformation boot camp, started the Couch to 5K program and have accepted a 5,000 push up challenge for the month of April . . . somebody put a stop to the madness.  No, don't . . . it's going to be awesome!  Anybody want to torture themselves along with me?  Please.  Anyone?

I did the whole measurement thang on Saturday so I can 'see' my body transformation in inches since the scale is usually a dirty whore.  Getzy also took some 'before' pictures . . . the whole time swearing, shaking his head and mumbling something about how these better not end up on the Internet.  I'm not sure you're ready for those anyway . . . maybe if the after is so crazy amazing that there needs to be some proof.  We'll see.  

Turns out I've been measuring my body parts wrong since like forever . . . for ladies it's at the narrowest part of your waist (not necessarily your belly button) and the widest part of your hips.  Who knew?  And every time I measure I hear this in my head . . . "36-24-36? Ha ha, only if she's 5'3."  If you don't get that reference, then you should probably go ask your parent's permission to read this and watch some more Good Luck Charlie. 

Now about that Couch to 5K . . . it wasn't so bad on Day 1 of Week 1.  I probably could have skipped ahead a few weeks but really, why?  Slow and steady wins the race.  I'm pretty sure the running is going to be preferable to the push ups . . . dang, those pretty much suck any way you do them. 

In other news, you should probably congratulate me on my new baby girl . . . or my garage sale, depending on where you stand in my yard.  Seems I got pranked last night . . .

I do love a little April Fools naughy business . . . I'm just generally too lazy to get more creative than telling my kids they don't have to go to school. Psych!
