Tip of the Hat/Wag of the Finger

Just popping in to give a little Colbert-style "Tip of the Hat/Wag of the Finger" update.

TIP OF MY HAT:

The Gap's RIDICULOUS vanity sizing. I mean, I'm not gonna argue or anything, but if you're looking for an ego boost, I suggest you try on their "Long and Lean" jeans. I am a usual size 6 or an 8 if it runs a little smaller...but yesterday I bought my first pair of size 4s IN MY ENTIRE LIFETIME. And, let me tell you, I am NOT a size 4. So, Gap--I applaud your ridiculous marketing strategy, and will just disregard that these jeans would be a 12 if it was 1970.

WAG OF MY FINGER:

DBQs. Can someone please invent a machine to grade these things? I am on hour SIX and am still not done. About one more hour to go. DBQs, I wag my finger at you.

TIP OF MY HAT:

P90X. I've definitely changed body composition over the past month that I've been doing this, and the scale finally budged a bit. I am now looking at about 5 pounds to go...57 down. I'm hoping to hit it by the New Year, and then ramp up the mileage again.

WAG OF MY FINGER:

Tony Horton. YOU ARE THE MOST ANNOYING INDIVIDUAL EVER. Please stop talking.

TIP OF MY HAT:

Cleveland weather in November. Not every year, but just in 2010. Took the kids in the double jogger yet again, and it's just been pretty freaking awesome out lately.

WAG OF MY FINGER:

Pork chops. You are never as good as I think you're going to be. Shame on you.

TIP OF MY HAT:

My teammates. JP is now the THIRD Evotri member to qualify for the Big Show in Kona. I am not sure how I'm allowed to be on this team or why they still talk to me, as I am most assuredly not nearly as cool as these tri machines. These people are awesome, and I'm just so happy to be along for the ride. They all inspire me in unique ways. Looking forward to our next team race in July fo' sho'.

That's all for now...looking forward to a trail run this weekend!

So I'm not the only one who can't get a pork chop to taste good?

I have an awesome pork chop recipe for you if you are interested. Also, if that man says "Bring it" one more time I am going to scream!

Sara- Which P90X program are you following? Lean? If you can pass some of your motivation and love of fitness my way, I'd sure appreciate it! P90X made Rob into a changed man this summer and for some reason he really likes the annoying Mr. Horton!

Awww man, you mean I'm not really a size 2? Booo Gap.
