Week 3 - B&W Selfie - Skinny is an Option

- Starting the year skinnier and fitter
- Hope to stay that way.
- This morning calls for the Shrimp & Grits 5K!

My secrets?

- Get a new mattress so your back doesn't hurt.
- Run.  A lot.  But, start with little jogs and walks.
- When you get random leg numbness:  ignore it.
- Try a piercing...belly button.  Instant motivation to not have extra rolls.
- Pay big $ to a weight loss clinic team approach that includes eight pills a day.
- Face the threat of losing your job because your waist is too big.
- Dig out "skinny" clothes from years ago and enjoy the reunion.
- Reward yourself with art supplies and fancy panties.
- Learn to love being sweaty.
- Run some more.
- Direct all your subordinates to get rid of the candy in their offices because you have no self control when you're working after 1700.
- Spend $10's of dollars at a time on iTunes.
- Don't be afraid to dance in your driveway.
- Sign up for random races and actually do them.
- Believe massages are therapy and get them often.
- p.s. That's not my's my ID card jammed in my bra just in case I pass out and someone needs to know my name and that I'm an organ donor.  haaaaaaaaaaa


  1. OMG, Jen! When you retire, you have to go into stand-up comedy … or continue to write hilarious posts that are published in a newspaper or something! You're the new Erma Bombeck! What a way for me to start the day! Thank you!

  2. Great photo, and yes I thought that was a nipple. Your advice was as good as it was funny. Thanks for the laughs this morning.

  3. Lol....yes I agree with all Jen...especially husband and I have decided that it is that time to get a new mattress....but I love all the advice....keep up the good work!

  6. Thanks for the inspiration!! I need a boost to get off my booty and exercise. I love your b/w photo - just super!! We have a tempurpedic bed and I would pack it in my suitcase when I traveled if I could - it's that good!! (Secret - yes, I have stuffed my tempurpedic pillow in my suitcase and left clothes as home just because I had to have at least my pillow w/me!!) ;-)

  7. Great shot! Congrats on the new waist size! That's great! I love running too. Makes me feel - strong! Glad you mentioned the photo ID card. LOL! I was kind of wondering. ;)
