My girlfriend has a really nice ass. And I say that as non-sexually as a girlfriend can say. It's one of those asses that you see in fitness magazines. Like a high bubble. Like two cantaloupes attached to the lower back.
And lovely all at the same time.
But I want an ass like that...you know...attached to my own body.
We Workman's are notorious flat-assers. We have the girth, but not the POP! Wide and...well...wide. At some point I did have a shelf ass, but I am pretty sure that was just where my ass fat and back fat met each other.
So awhile back I posted about how I was going to embark on Operation Ass. This meant that at least twice a week during circuit, I would focus on adding more ass-tacular, if you will, moves. Walking lunges with 25lbs in each hand. Reverse lunges, forward lunges, squats with weights, jump squats, various yoga moves such as awkward airplane, half moon, and some other position that I can't think of the name.
And it is working just a wee bit.
However, in addition to working the assticles, it is also building up my quads. Which, mama has always had strong quads, so now they are nice and visible whenst flexed, but increasing slightly in size.
And if you have been paying attention to my life these last 2.5 years, you will know that I have the thigh-to-waist ratio pants shopping problem-o that several of us suffer from. MY THIGHS ARE THE BANE OF MY EXISTENCE.
That may be a tad exaggerated, bc at least the front of thighs don't have cellulite. But shopping is frustrating at times bc I am pretty sure that the fit models they use for clothing are thigh-less.
As I was wondering around the mall today, pre-shopping shall we call it (you know, when you don't have any money but need to scope things out just in case when you DO have money, you will know what you must have?), I thought of the cruel irony that now that I can shop pretty much anywhere size wise, but no longer have credit cards to shop irresponsibly with.
And for the first time, I was thankful for a moment that I wasnt this size in college when I did have those wonderful plastic magic cards bc my debt would have been triple what it was.
