My upper body had that lovely â€œI lifted weightsâ€ feeling this morning. I could especially feel it in my triceps and back. Guess the Intro to Iron Pumping Challenge is going to work! 🙂
Iâ€™m experimenting with my schedule a little bit lately; Iâ€™m waking up early to get everyday tasks (like e-mail) out of the way, going to work out around 9 or 10 AM, and then Iâ€™ll get into the harder aspects of my workday in the afternoon. I feel like Iâ€™m most creative then so this new schedule works out well. This also means that YOU get a more interesting lunch post. 🙂
I was craving a simple bowl of cereal (Costco brand pecan and blueberry) with rice milk.
As well as a shot of wheatgrass:
And an orange.
Sisterhood of the Blogging Pants
I was so excited to receive the Blogging Pants from Monica last week!
This concept was started by Faith, and was inspired by the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants book/movie. In the book, four friends exchange the pants back and forth, which magically fit them all, even though they are all different shapes and sizes. I think the pants are a metaphor for friendship. 🙂
The Blogging Pants works on the same concept â€“ bloggers pass the pants around the blog community, writing inspirational messages in fabric marker on the jeans.
For my motivational phrase, I wrote â€œHappiness is a choice.â€ This is pretty much my very simple life philosophy, and itâ€™s gotten me through some rough times.
Faith set the following rules for the Blogging Pants (some of which are taken from the book):
- Be your beautiful self and live vivaciously! Have fun!
- You must never say that you are â€œfat.â€ You must never think to yourself, â€œI am fat.â€
- Remember, pants=love. Love your pals, love yourself.
- Write your quote, blog, take your picture, and post about the pants (and e-mail Faith), and choose another blogger to send them to!
So far, the following bloggers have â€˜ownedâ€™ the pants:
As it is traditionally done with the pants, I want to hear who YOU think should receive the pants next. Nominate a blogger (if can be yourself if you want; donâ€™t be shy) who inspires others, needs a little extra motivation, or has done something special or exciting recently.
WHO do you think should get the pants next AND WHY? Nominate away, and Iâ€™ll pick the new owner Friday afternoon!
