So I think I may have teased a little too much with something I said in yesterday’s post.
But I’m not spilling the beans just yet. Gotta make you work for it.
Though I won’t share THAT particular dream with you (just yet), I do have something I want to get off my chest. Clara’s excited.
I want a tattoo.
I have ZERO tattoos currently. I really have nothing against getting tattoos – I just believe that, if you’re going to do something THAT permanent to your body, you need to really like and believe in what you’re getting.
I’m sorry if you have a butterfly tattoo, but I just never really understood why someone would get a generic symbol or character. (if you DO have a butterfly tattoo, leave a comment and let me in on your reasoning.)
Call me crazy, but I want to get the Tuesday Trainer button tattooed on me. (my mom and a few readers just called me crazy.)
I’m not sure WHERE, but I do know WHY.
It’s twofold: The first is obvious – I love this blog and I love the TT feature. Even if I didn’t blog anymore, this time in my life will always be looked back upon as EXCITING, FULFILLING and just plain FUN!
The second reason: TT was Travis’ nickname as a child. TT stood for “Tank Travis”, because he was such a HUGE kid! Like “not on the growth charts” huge!!
So there you have it. I’m not sure I’ll follow through with it. But that’s what I’ve been toying around with in my head lately.
Moving on…to Tuesday Trainer, ironically.
The theme for this week was “My Go-To Vanity Move”. I loved this week because I got to hear about everyone’s “trouble” areas and where we focus our attention. Most people, like myself, said Abs or Legs.
I kinda feel as though we should get over ourselves and our “perceived faults or blemishes” and just promote self-love. But I’m also a woman. A human woman who doesn’t really love every single thing about my body. So we’ll embrace these vanity moves and start working toward self-love with our firmer thighs and six packs. K?
No workout today – just a “Vanity Move” spotlight, if you will. The BIGGEST week for Tuesday Trainer – 14 participants!! Listed in the order in which I received them. (In this case, the early girl gets the worm top row of the table.)
