I just had a monumental birthday... I turned 30.  Came out of no where I swear.. It was a hard transition for me. I have always wanted to be 30 and as it loomed over me I panicked.. All of the sudden there seemed to be a whole list of things I did not do in my 20s. Mr. LbF asked me to tell him my list and at that moment I could not remember one thing... so I lost all credibility in my pity party. Damn old age memory loss....
He says "well it is better than the other option" What kind of comfort is that supposed to bring anyway?
Thinking about how I pictured myself to be in my 30's, I decided major changes needed to take place! My master plan came to me while lying next to my hubby.. As my favorite sounding board I attempted to explain my plan.

Me: "I think I need to run"

Mr LbF: "ok"

Me: "No I mean become a runner like those skinny bitches that get up before the sun."

Mr LbF: "ok"

Me: "I am gonna need a few things..... like a baseball cap, but not one for a sports team just one from a place like the Gap"

Mr LbF: "ok"

Me: "And a smoothly maker and some of that powder they put in it, what is that anyway, maybe its magic motivation powder, it would have to be to make me get out of bed before the sun"

Mr LbF: "Its protein, not magic"

Me: "I need cute spandex shorts too and a real bra, the last bra I bought did not fit so good, I tightened the straps to the point that my breast were so high I was afraid my nipples might get airsick. "

Mr LbF: "ok"

Me: "I think it would help if I made friends with one of them first, sort of like an "in", Where do they hang out? GNC maybe, I bet that's where they get the magic powder? Where have you seen them?"

Mr LbF: "I've only really been around one once. I was running up this hill and I looked over my shoulder and all I saw were boobs and ponytail. I picked up my pace and by the top of the hill she was passing me. She looked over her shoulder and said "Thanks"!

Me: "Yeah its gonna be a llllooooonnggg time before I am passing anyone."

Mr LbF: "ok"

So the first thing I plan on doing is dusting off my workout clothes and using them for their intended purpose. The next thing is to get back to basics!
A big thank you to all who have been so patient with me. Pound for Person here I come!


  1. One of my goals for the year is to run a 5k by the end of it. I've never managed to run more than a city block or two. I've only worked out once in the past month, so I guess I'd better got on it. Wish we could be workout buddies!

  2. I worked out for like a week - Eh. I know I should do it, but I just feel so blahhhh!
