The Thursday Three

My three thoughts for this Thursday:

  1. How lame is it to pull an AB?  I mean seriously, who comes home from the gym and proclaims, "people, I have a pulled AB."  ? ? ---- ummm, "ME!"

   2.  I walked in as Peanut was getting into her school clothes this morning to see her in her swim bottoms.  from.  when.  she.  was.  FIVEno joke.
I swear they looked like compression chonies. [please click here ---- we do not use the "p" word in my home].  She had semi-permanent looking rings around her thighs.

Me: Peanut, why the bikini bottoms???
Peanut:  I don't have any chonies
Me:  I do two loads of laundry a day - there is NO WAY you don't have clean chonies.
Peanut: They are all packed for NZ.

yes, she managed to pack [for the fifth time] while I was watching the Suns get spanked by the team I hate most [ l a k  . . ] I can't even write it.

    3.  The questions I get most . . . How tall is your Hubby, What ab workout do you follow & how did you start up your business?  The first & third ones, I "get".  He is freaking tall [and smokin' hot] & my job is awesome but seriously the ab thing makes. me. laugh.  Well, until Tuesday.  Walked in early to a spin class [not recommended] . . . the instructor came up to me asking question #2.  chat. chat. chat. She asks . . .You cycle a lot?  "Ha, no - - - I'm a runner just doing a little cross training trying to get my 3 hour 20 min marathon I'm soooo craving." 

big mistake.

For the next 57 minutes . . .


"hey abs, you think they just hand out 3:20's?", "PINK, it's supposed to feel uncomfortable.", "water break is in 30 seconds, put it down!"

it went on.  and on.  and on.

WHAT THE. . . . . ? ? ?  I think had she been able to see my eyes under my cap, my "look" would have killed her.  But instead, I dropped off a $20 Starbucks card to her this morning.

t w i s t e d.

love it.  love excellent instructors. 
You have a love/hate relationship with any of your coach/instructors/motivators?

LOL. I clicked over to the word issues post as well- too funny!!! I love instructors/ workouts that kick my booty. But I'd be mortified if I were called out like that.

Sounds like the Jillian Michaels training method is rubbing off on the general trainer population. Sounds like a great workout.

Based on the pictures I've seen on your site, I'm a little scared to know what exercise you were doing that would cause you to pull an ab muscle. Trying to stop bullets with your stomach?

Love it!!! That is the kind of instructor that I need :)

Steel Springs said...

Haha. I love that you use "chonies" in place of the p-word. I'm not a big fan of that word, either. It's awesome that Peanut is so excited to go to NZ. She's certainly not a procrastinator when it comes to packing!

Your abs do look amazing in your profile pic. It's not surprising to me that you get that question a lot.

Sarah said...

Hahahaha!!! I hate the word "panties" too. I especially hate to hear men say it. Makes them sound like pervs. Also can't stand guys who say, "Hey, LADIES."


But how did you come up with the word "chonies"?

My coach happens to be a very good friend of mine, but on speedwork days, I really, really, dislike her! Btw~I have never heard the word chonies before. We don't use the "P" word either, but prefer ummerwear because that is what the 3 yr old calls them : )

Marlene said...

Sounds like you got yourself quite the workout!! Suck it up, Princess!! :)

Unknown said...

I want a coach like that and if I were a coach, that would be me!!

I love your attitude about her torture!

MCM Mama said...

I could so use someone to make me work out like that!

Anonymous said...

Drop and give me twenty. No thirty. Now!

(I could use a gift card for some new chonies...)

Twenty more princess!

i've pulled an ab muscle every now and then...just means you are workin' it girl! I am my own worst coach/personal trainer/enemy! Since I'm no longer in the personal training business, i take it all out on myself and love every second of it. We loved people like you who loved us and hated us and showered us with gifts. My best gift ever, a year pass for all 4 Disney Theme parks (one for the husband too).

Have a Love/Hate relationship with my children...does that count?

Karine said...

So sorry about the ab tear. Working out too hard, maybe?? I had a trainer who pushed me (Tracy) so I just made her my longer my trainer.

twilas vintage clothing said...

hahah I have never heard of that...pulling an ab. you must have been working hard!!


Megan said...

I read and reread the first part of this thinking ab was an acronym for another body part. Don't know what's wrong with my brain today.

My 4yr insists on wearing the p that are a size too small. every day. she has the right sized ones but she likes the ones she has to wriggled into. no idea why.

Jeri said...

totally strained an ab muscle flying downhill in a 5k race last march after training on a treadmill in winter months. It stayed injured for NINE EFFING MONTHS. This is no laughing matter. ;) Except for now..when it's slightly funny.

RobinLK said...

No love/hate yet... but starting my first-ever group training program in a week. Ummm....I'll get back to you on that question!

ihaverun said...

It's too funny that I just found this post. I have been wandering around (stalking) your blog and was about to email and ask what you do for a living and how you got those abs...
