Operation Lululemon

I have this hoodie that my friend bought me for Christmas. It’s from Lululemon… if you haven’t heard of it than you must not be serious about your fitness fashion.

Needless to say, I didn’t really know about it.

My friend Amanda on the other hand looks cute all of the time, even when she’s lifting weights, or running, or lying around the house or… well you get it. I kind of hate her for it, but then she goes and buys me this dadgum hoodie and I love her again.

The only problem with this hoodie is that I can’t zip it up. (Even though I’m pretty sure she bought the biggest size that they have.) I didn’t tell her that at first but then I finally copped to it. I must have been really awkward about the whole thing because Brent finally asked me if it fit. I put it on to show him and tried to close it shut and of course it pushed my boobs together. Brent thought it fit just fine. Apparently he had become oblivious to that fact that I’ve gotten so fat that I’ve turned into one big walking, jiggly boob… or maybe he knows this and has just embraced it. Dudes like boobs.

The opportunist in me decided to make a deal with him. If I get to where I can zip this jacket up then he has to buy me something else from Lululemon. Unfortunately, he’s an opportunist as well because he put a time frame on it, Valentine’s Day. If I can’t zip it then he gets something.


So here it is folks, the jacket that won’t zip.

This picture was taken after Brent trained us today at Crossfit Bodywerx. I knew I was going to take this picture and wanted to wear a cute shirt underneath. But right before it was time to go to the gym I realized that I had put all of my workout clothes in the washing machine but not the dryer. I only have one sports bra that can handle this much woman so I had to wear it sopping wet. I also ended up wearing this “slurpee” shirt that had a hole in the armpit and pants that are two sizes too small. So much for trying to be cute right? Oh well, Amanda is cute enough for the both of us. I’ll post the results on Friday, February 15th during the weekly weigh-in.

Brent isn’t going to win this bet and I think he knows it, so he cuddled with Penelope as he proceeded to kick my ass.


 Amanda and I worked out together and this is what he had us do.

Warm up:

1000 meter row

We did 3×10 on each of the following exercises with kettle bells going higher in weight for each set:

One legged Romanian Deadlifts

 clean and press


That was only the warm up!


(a.k.a. workout of the day)


(meaning as many rounds as possible)

5 minutes on each station going as hard as possible for 30 seconds and resting 20 seconds.

prowler pushes (pushing a heavy sled looking thing)

spinning on the bike


battling ropes (you’ve seen it on the Biggest Loser)

And with that I will leave you with this little nugget of entertainment…

P.S. You can see the result here.
