My upper body had that lovely “I lifted weights” feeling this morning. I could especially feel it in my triceps and back. Guess the Intro to Iron Pumping Challenge is going to work! 🙂
I’m experimenting with my schedule a little bit lately; I’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 I’ll get into the harder aspects of my workday in the afternoon. I feel like I’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 – bloggers pass the pants around the blog community, writing inspirational messages in fabric marker on the jeans.
For my motivational phrase, I wrote “Happiness is a choice.” This is pretty much my very simple life philosophy, and it’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 “fat.” You must never think to yourself, “I am fat.”
- 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 ‘owned’ 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; don’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 I’ll pick the new owner Friday afternoon!
