Ass Talk

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.

It's annoying.

And lovely all at the same time.

But I want an ass like 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.

Happy Thursday Bloggers and Readers alike!


  1. I want to have a ass like that too. I no longer have the shelf ass, but it ain't shapely....yet.

    Happy Thursday Amy!!

  2. I get my lovely caboose from my mother. I refer to it as 'The Hangy Down Cheeks'. Yes, I have a bubble butt....Yes, I could totally do with out a bubble butt.

    And I have a total of 3 pairs of jeans and 1 pair of cords that fit me. That's it. 4 measly pair of pants. Because my waist/hip/thigh proportion is way off. I have hips that were made to birth 18 kids and thighs I call 'The Watermelons'. The only jeans I can wear I have to buy at a cowboy clothing store...right next to the gold and silver rhinestudded jean jackets. It sucks.

  3. My bum is one of the only things I have always been proud of, once I saw a girl at the gym with a ridiculously great booty and I told her lol luckily she was like me and didn't get creeped out.

  4. I think you look amazing!! Flat ass or otherwise... I hope this comment posts, I am having the same issues.

  5. Like you, I have my mother AND father to thank for my flat ass. Maybe as I lose some weight it will gain a little shape... but from the looks of my parents, I don't have much to look forward to in that department~haha.

  6. Yay! I can. Thanx to my techno suavy roomie. She told me to sign out of blogger and sign back in with the stay signed in thing unchecked and It finally worked.... I can't remember what I was going to say but Yay! Anyway! i love you Sunshine!

  7. Ah lass I am too of the clan of the assless. Unfortunately the assless and thighless clan had never mated leaving it as you can have ass and thighs or just ass. but assless and thighless never have met. sigh.

  8. I wish mine didn't stick out so far. I have the pop and the width and it is not fun.

  9. Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or
    did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple
    adjustements would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your
    design. Bless you
