I am now three days into a new workout plan. It’s going well really, there are new things to do each day and so far it has been easy to keep up. I’m only three days in so I am under no illusions that it will stay this great but the pictures help. Wait did I not tell you what plan I’m following? My bad, it’s every workout plan in the latest Shape Magazine. This month has Kristen bell on the cover, that Kristen Bell up there on the left. I feel like you looking for more explanation than this so let me start from the beginning.
For the last year I have been getting Shape magazine delivered. It has my name on it, not Beautiful’s and it has followed us from when we lived in Hawaii even though I sent in no change of address form. I have no idea how I got signed up but growing up this is the kind of thing my friends would do to mess with me. No one will own up to it, even though they have obviously renewed the subscription at least once. I have been moving the magazines right from the mailbox to the recycling bin but when the latest issue arrived this Wednesday it coincided with a resolution that morning to start working out more. I wan’t sure what I was going to do and then the magazine arrived with headlines like:
- 4-Week Slim Down
- 10 minute Emergency Fat blast
- Yoga Burn & Firm
- The 2 minute Ab Move
So here I was ready to start working out and there was this magazine with some great ideas on how to do it in 10 minute increments for 4 weeks. Now I know these workouts are meant for women, based on the pictures detailing how to do each of the exercises, but as the stay at home dad most people think I’m a woman anyway. So why not embrace that stereotype, get healthy, and put to use this great subscription. I will slim down one page at a time and hope that my fake subscription doesn’t run out before I get down to my fighting weight.
