tuesday trainer-meet your trainers (part I)
**Don’t miss an important poll at the end of this post!! And don’t forget to enter my gnu foods giveaway!!**
Welcome to Tuesday Trainer!! A blogger-supported workout feature that’s really becoming quite the hit! Mostly because all of my friends are gorgeous.
Last week was Back and Biceps. Did anyone do this workout?? I did – you should!
Since I’m still sore from that workout (and my triathlon!), I decided that we should all REST this week!
Less moving…and more talking. Actually, quite the opposite of what I normally like to do. Travis is rolling his eyes because he thinks I move AND talk too much. It’s all his fault – If he wouldn’t fall asleep so fast at night, I wouldn’t have to keep kicking him to wake him up and finish my stories. (Any other husbands out there that have the ability to fall asleep within 2 seconds of their heads hitting the pillow? Or wives who continue yammering on to said husband, clueless that he isn’t listening
and really could care less??)
As I was saying, this week is all about the “trainers”. I asked each participant to answer the following questions:
- What do you wear while working out?
- What is your favorite footwear?
- Favorite post workout meal/snack?
- What’s your next fitness goal?
If you missed MY Meet Your Trainer interview, here it is. If you watched it last Thursday, I’m sorry that you wasted the 4 minutes and 50 seconds.
What will NOT be a waste of time are the FOLLOWING videos. Take my advice: BOOKMARK this post!! It’s going to take a while to get through the entire thing…it will be worth your time though!!
Starting first with the littlest trainer of all – Henry Cole Wright, aka, Punkinhead Fred.
He doesn’t have a registered URL…yet.
I made that boy! Well, God made him, but I get to call him my son! It’s a pretty sweet gig.
Now on to the real bloggers…
MEET YOUR TRAINERS (in alphabetical order)
Allie – colourmehappy
- She sent me homemade deodorant (which I haven’t really used) – so she a) thinks I smell and b) is very generous!
- She sweats a lot and should be a Prana spokesmodel …or Saucony…or Smartwool.
- Send any end of season melons her way!
Bonnie – lifetothefull
- She’s high on pumpkin pie.
- She’s shown me how to pronounce “Lulemon” – don’t even ask how I used to pronounce it.
- A Vibram BFF
- She just kinda goes out and runs 21 miles any day…no problem..meh, whatever. If I didn’t love her so much, I’d hate her.
Christin – christinjoyful

- She did her interview in her car – which makes her awesome in my mind.
- She’s a group fitness instructor – which makes her awesome in real life.

Katie – yesiwantcake
- Shortest interview ever…and all it makes me want to do is talk to this girl in person. Tease.
- Is wearing no bottoms under that apron.
- Poor Baby A is NOT.HAPPY. Probably because her mom has no pants on.
Kirsten – kcaptures
- Her butt looks really good in capris.
- She calls shoes sneakers. Would rather lift obese children than run.
- Next fitness goal – becoming a personal trainer…instead of a whistle, she’ll just use her tongue click to make them drop and give her 20.
Kristen – eathealthybehappylivewell
- She likes it tight up top and tight below. Insert your own highly inappropriate joke here.
- She does oatmeal and smoothies a lot. A girl after my own heart.
- She’s totally gonna rock her next race! Good luck, girl!
Lindsay – cottercrunch
- She wears both glitter and grease as moisturizers. Must work because she’s HAWT!

Aren’t they all just delightful!!! Seriously – I know I say seriously a lot, but seriously, these ladies are just amazing! Outside and in!
If you’d like to take part in “the greatest thing since homemade applesauce” and become one of “the fittest people on planet Earth” – and I’m just quoting Oxygen magazine here – participate in Tuesday Trainer with us next week. I’m always looking for new people
to make fun of.
Last part – the POLL!! Janetha, Katie and I have been secretly plotting to take over the world. Or just hold a cool Blogger’s Retreat. We’re trying to see how much interest there would be in having a retreat/conference in late April/early May so that we can start setting plans! Several hotels have already shown interest in hosting our group! We’ll let you know more details ASAP! Just know this – it will be more of a hangout weekend – no speakers- very relaxed schedule! This should allow for more time to INTERACT and have fellowship – something we all need more of! I’m excited just the THOUGHT of this retreat!!
