I love the show What Not to Wear on TLC. I asked Jaren if he would nominate me and my friend Ashlie to be on it. He said no. Then I got an idea. Jaren has been wanting me to exercise with him, so we made a deal: if I lose a bunch of weight and none of my clothes fit me any more, he will nominate me for What Not to Wear!
Lately I've noticed that I've put on a few pounds (I only have one pair of pants that fit and all my shirts make me look like I'm pregnant...someone actually asked the other day). Jaren suggested again that we go running. Well, for anyone who doesn't know, I don't run. So, he suggested riding the bike while he ran. That would be fine except that he runs at 5:30 in the morning with his mission friends and I, a. don't want to wake up that early, and b. don't want to be the retard on the bike. I have this fear that originated in middle school, of exercising in front of boys. I realized that I'm even afraid to do it in front of Jaren. My solutions was to call my friend Ashlie, who I feel I don't get enough time with and who also wants to lose some poundage. We set up a time to exercise three times a week and I bought an old VHS tape that has a lady with an extremely high cut leotard on the front (the title is something like "Get the Guts to Flex Your Butt on Camera" or at least that's what it should be). Anyway, our first workout is today and I'm excited. Any tips on better videos? ( I also have a winsor pilates tape, but last time I used that, I lost what little butt I had and had to sit around for a month just to get it back).
