Whip it into shape

Now whip it - Into shape
Shape it up - Get straight
Go forward - Move ahead
Try to detect it - It's not too late
To whip it - Whip it good

You better know this song. Do you?

I have about 3 weeks to get my ass in shape for BlogHer. I've been really awesome at working out everyday for the last 2 weeks so I fully expect to WOW everyone.

If you are a woman you know that you have to impress other women. It's like a law or something. I imagine there will be 1.7 men there and I honestly could care less about them. I need to impress the ladies.

Ladies, you know what I'm talking about, right? I'm not the only one who wants to make a good impression on other women, right? RIGHT?!?!?!

I know it really won't make a hill of beans of a difference if I go down a dress size between now and then because, other than one person who'll be there, not one of these women has seen me in person. So it's not like they have something to compare to.

Regardless. I'd like to make a good first impression. And I know this is so prima donna of me, but I'd also like to get my hair trimmed, eyebrows tweezed (actually I'd like to try the threading because I hear it's awesome) a mani and pedi and maybe even wax a place or two before I leave. Of course I'd like to get an outfit or 4 and maybe a pair of shoes or 9. Hell, I won't even look like myself if I have my way.

I've been pretty good about going on my almost daily walks/jogs with Jackson. I've incorporated some leg exercises that Slynnro posted about recently. Now I just need some arm moves. I'm kicking myself because I donated a set of small hand weights recently and now I really would use them. Unlike when I bought them and told myself I'd actually use them and then they gathered dust and glared at me from across the room until I hid them in the closet. Shoot, I wish I would have kept them. Due to a bum elbow I can't do regular or even modified push ups so that's a no go. That and I'm a total girl and can't do a push up even if my life depended on it. It's pathetic, really. So, do you lovely readers have any arm exercises you'd like to suggest?

In all seriousness, I'm not really trying to impress a bunch of women I don't know. I just want to keep improving on myself for my own sake.

Although I wouldn't mind impressing a bunch of women with my adorable outfits and accessories.

Threading is beyond awesome. I can't do waxing....always get a nasty rash. Just don't wear mascara when you go, unless you really like the Tammy Faye look....the threading, while not really painful, will most likely make your eyes water pretty badly for a couple of minutes. I need to get threaded again one of these days....my unibrow is starting to return. Boo, hiss!

Well, I'll be impressed! Plus, I'll be Schlubby McGee, so everyone will look fabulous next to me. I find it is easier for a group to point out the schlubby one in a group. Kind of like "one of these things is not like the other." :)

i totally can appreciate wanting to impress other women. it's like when you meet your boyfriend's best girl friends or sister. you know they're going to be the most critical!

Awww! You look great already!
You totally need to get some 5 lb. weights again. Lucky for you, it's a pretty cheap investment. DON'T ever get rid of them again! :)

It's okay. I'm doing the same thing. I have a haircut scheduled for next weekend. I'm already eyebrow crazy. I've bought a ton of new clothes. I try to control the things I can control, ya know?
