Cancel the Fushia Alert

I was thinking that we should come up with a term for when bloggers go A-WOL.  You know, like the Amber Alert but with a different color of course.  Fushia?  Magenta?  Puce?

A Puce Alert?

Think on it and let me know.

Anyways, I haven't been absent for any particular reason, other than I have nothing creative or core shaking to share...and I HATE WHEN THAT HAPPENS.  So rather than bore you, I just blog stalk.  So carry on.

Let us see.  Anything to share?

I pooped in the Gulf of Mexico once. 

I will save that story for one day when we meet in person and you want me to regail you with such tales.

My favorite new magazine is Oxygen.  It is a women's fitness magazine for women who really work out.  Like, the girls in it all have muscles (not scary man muscles), and the there are tons of articles on different workouts, foods, etc.  I get so tired of Shape and Self, that are more like a "athletic light" version of Cosmo.  So if you see Oxygen on the newsstands, pic it up.

I have been doing pretty good on watching my food intake and upping my cardio during circuit.  I have added squat jumps (hateful things), jumping lunges (hateful things part duex), plie jumps, bouncing with a twist, etc.  I do cardio at every other station.  I am also trying to focus on building my back and chest a little more.  If I am going to have sad little low hanger boobies, they might as well be hanging off a solid pec muscle.

And I am obsessed with my back muscles.  Sometimes...just sometimes...I catch a glimpse of them in a mirror and I am sad that I cannot lick them. 

All this increased cardio has me sweating like a BEAST during circuit.  It's awesome.

Hey, I mowed the grass this weekend.  (claps)

And I did it in just shorts and a sports bra.  GASP!  Now I don't have a stomach like Catherines...and I try not to inflict the general public with my midsection...but it was hot and I said WHAT THE HELL!  Also occuring whilst mowing...I was yanking the push mower in a momentary lapse of adulthood (aka pouting) and rammed it into my port.  I thought "would that be awesome if I injured my port MOWING GRASS".

I am entirely jealous of Gilly and LapbandGal because they are celebrities.  Also, Lapband Gal went to a pole dancing class, and we don't have those here in Pensacola...but sweet mother of titty tassles...if we did...I would SO be on it.  And by it...I mean the pole.

So, I am not going to Chicago BUT...the other day as I was blow drying my hair I thought of something.  If I WAS going to Chicago, I think all of us should pose in our underwear and bra and have someone take a picture.  You know, like the Dove commercials where they have women of all shapes and sizes pose?  It would be awesome.  All of us loving our bodies no matter what the size.  So, if you still want to do it SANS me...go for it.  I will just be jealous.

One last thing.  Do you know when you are referring to someone in your blog, like another blogger, that linking their name with a hyperlink to their blog is superbeneficial for that blog?  It increases your chances of coming up in a google search, etc.  So if you have the chance...try to link.   It takes a little time, but it's kinda blog karma.

Happy Humpday humpers!

  4. I totally vote for a Puce Alert, sounds catchy.

    Maybe everyone who isn't going to Chicago should do the sports bra photo!? That way we can feel cool too. :-)

  8. Snif! If someone would have told me 3 years ago that the Oprah of bandsters would be giving ME a shout-out for my stomach...! :) Hee hee

  10. LOL. The Amber Alert is named for a girl named Amber. :)

  11. Yes! So you can go ahead and sing my praises and link to my blog now. Thanks in advance. ;-)

  12. Awww, I'll miss you in Chicago. :( What do we need to do to get you to go?

  13. Will miss you in Chicago! I hate the word "Puce" sounds like puke so that color is out. "Amber Alert" is actually named after a little girl named Amber from New Jersey I believe. So, we can name the missing blogger alert, the AMY Alert! However, I know we have a Silver Alert here in FL for missing seniors....took me a while to figure that one out!

  17. I know you said a lot of good stuff because you always do but all I really heard is

    I'M NOT GOING TO CHICAGO

    WHAT?!?!? Say it isn't so!! What do we have to do to get you to go? It just won't be the same without you flashing your port on Friday night. You are THE ice breaker!! Please please please go!!! I will miss you so much...it just won't be the same without you!!

  18. how did people miss the comedic value of the Fushia Alert??? I am rolling on the floor laughing. Great post...as usual!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Glad someone pointed it out, but Amber was a little girl who was sadly murdered in Texas. Not a color, silly Amy. :) And I thought you were talking about me. ROFL. I've been MIA and just got back from a two month R&R today! LOL

  20. I sorta knew you weren't going to Chicago this year... Am I psychic? No, you told me by text months ago that you didn't think you could go... but it is still super sad to see it in type. I mean, Now that I'm back home in Philly, when will we get to brunch and hit the theme parks? If any of your business trips take you to the Northeast... Or if any of my leisure trips take me to the Panhandle... We'll get our BOOB on. Miss U & H... XOXO *M*

  21. I don't like Puce Alert as much as Fucia Alert because it sounds too much like a "Puke Alert" and that's just wrong. But maybe for bandsters, it's more appropriate? Hmm...something to ponder.

    I'm not going to Chicago either (AGAIN! insert pouty face here) so we can be jealous together. If I READ Oxygen but don't actually work out like an Oxygen reader, will I still LOOK like a ripped Oxygen reader?

  22. Sad I won't get to meet you! FYI...you are one of my inspirations for trying CrossFit. So, thank you. Or rather if I die on Saturday, you are partially responsible. :)

    Welcome back!
