How Many Arm Muscles Do You Use When You Wipe Your Butt?

Warning: I am going to share TMI with you because that's how I roll. Learn from me, people.

Okay. I'd like to begin this post by telling you about some of the things that I had trouble doing this morning.

Check it:

1. Wiping myself after I peed.
2. Brushing my teeth.
3. Holding my hairdryer.
4. Backing my car up.
5. Carrying my pocketbook.

And before you ask? NO. I'm not sick.

But, I may be crazy.

In a nutshell, here's the deal. I've decided to put Operation Ass Shrinkage into full swing.

Not only am I carefully monitoring what I eat and trying to make healthier food choices, y'all. But THIS TIME? I'm also stepping up the exercise.

You are not even going to believe this, people. But, I---SQUEAMISH SALLY COSTA---lover of all things chocolate, have given it all up to join a TEN WEEK fitness challenge.

This challenge basically involves me meeting with a trainer three times a week for a series of personalized workouts that push me physically beyond any limits that I have ever known. Seriously.

Yesterday, was my first session---focusing on the upper body using weights (OUCH! MY FUGGIN ARMS HURT LIKE A MOFO!).

I assumed--- since I had never met my trainer before, that she would sort of take it easy on know...ease me in.

I was sooooo flippin wrong.

Instead, she pushed me to keep moving, even when I thought I couldn't MOVE ANOTHER FUGGIN MUSCLE---by saying things like, "Get comfortable with being uncomfortable!" And, "There is no FUN in fitness!" And, "Focus! Burning is good!"

Now, before I go any further, I will admit that perhaps during this session, I may have BRIEFLY envisioned covering the trainer's mouth with duct tape.

But, honestly? That's a step up for me!

You all know HOW MUCH I LOVE MY TASER, right?

And I swear! I didn't even think, for one minute, about using it on her!


Dudes! How impressive is that?

Anywho, I can't end this post without showing you some pictures of my trainer (she said I could). So, here she is....

This is Amy Jones:

She'll be the one kicking my ass for the next ten weeks.

Pray for me.

Oh, AND? Pray for her.

I totally agree. wiping your butt is so overrated when you can barely lift the dead weight of stumps!
