Up for a Challenge?


Today I had a bunch of errands to run. I've been fighting a summer cold, but managed to get a four mile run in, two days after my 11 miler. So this morning was a catch up day, I got my lip waxed, and we headed to the grocery store. I was feeling "thin" today, had my favorite denim skirt on, and my hair was behaving. We started cruising the frozen food section, and a few stock boys looked my way. Then I caught them looking again. I start feeling very cougar-ish, and thinking "hmmm, I must still got it!" We get in the car, and I look in the rear view mirror and see....a bright pink upper lip. No, florescent pink, really really pink. Those boys didn't think I was a MILF, they were probably thinking "why does that mother have a red mustache?"

My friend Jennifer and I were talking more about smoothies and Amazing Grass. She's been looking for a new breakfast, to better fuel her days running after her twin girls. We decided to do a challenge, to have smoothies made with AG for breakfast for the next 30 days. We want to see if all the hype is true, if it gives us boundless energy and glowing skin. I'm hoping it will give me some sustained energy for my new longer training runs. Wanna join us? It doesn't have to be smoothies, it can be anything. Exercise more? Take a break from sugar? Find time to read more? We're starting on Friday morning, so let me know, and I'll keep you posted on our progress.

I sooooo admire you for all the runs you go on. Exercise and I have a hate/hate relationship.

The stock boys were not looking at your red upper lip, they were looking at your ass(sorry...) in a sexy denim skirt.

I have a blog award for you on my blog.

Hey if you run that much, red upper lip or not, you are probably a MILF. Don't let yourself think anything different. Okay what is amazing grass? If it gives energy I would like to give it a try.

not up for a 30 day challenge just now but interested to see how it goes. Your pink lip reminds me of my one nightmare was experience - I was in High School and the wax was too hot and I burned and peeled! It took two weeks to clear. Awful. And the worst part was, I wasn't overly concerned with facial hair in High School, my mother was, so I went at her insistence. After that incident I told her I wasn't going back and I don't think I was waxed again for over 10 years!!!

Start day! We will be doing.....30! I added the vanilla like you suggested and it helps but man oh man I need smoothie making help!

Hah! That's hilarious! I always think people are checking me out too and then realize that I have something stuck to my face or my shirts on inside out. I'm sure that you are still a MILF red upper lip or not!!!
