I'm a Show-Off Workin'- Out Fat Face

cash advance


Don't hate! Thanks, Miss Ann!

Shelli and Fantastagirl have started a virtual walk from Minneapolis to Malibu. Initially, I thought it would be cool to join them on their walk, but as I was working out today, I thought maybe I need to do my own map. Since, really, I'm headed in the opposite direction of them. A couple of days ago I started logging the strides and calories burned. You would think that there would be a button for me to press to get the miles equivalence, but I sure couldn't find one. I went to the Precor website and found the FAQ's for my Cross-trainer, and they're making me do math! Gah! I decided right there and then I was going to do a spreadsheet to calculate that shit! Maybe I've missed something, but it just doesn't seem right that the display doesn't show me how many miles/kilometers I've walked.

I tried plotting a path to the U.S. just to see if it would send me into the ocean, but Google couldn't calculate it. I'm going to try to plot my mileage on Saturdays just for a bit of friendly competition. Anything to keep me interested in exercising. Thank you, Shelli, it's a fun idea!

A new clothing shop opened this week at Tanglin Mall, FatFace. I don't know who the hell thought that was a good name for a store. Honestly, it is insulting -- to me anyway. However, the clothes will fit Caucasians up to UK size 18. The clothing line is very casual, but not inexpensive. When I was there today, mostly winter clothing was on the racks (stores need to carry winter stuff for expats heading home during the winter months). The salespeople were very helpful and friendly. One salesperson told me today that they'll be stocking the warm-weather clothing by the end of next week. I just read online that the FatFace franchise is owned by Robinson's (who also own the Marks & Spencer and John Little franchises). I did buy a pair of shorts, a top, and a sundress. I am so tired of my other clothes! Never in my life, have I been so tired of my wardrobe. So, I'm hoping that if I can continue working out consistently, I'll lose my fat face.

Fat Face? Really? LOL!

Maybe they could start a whole line of stores....."Fat Ass," "Fat Belly," etc. :)

I've missed you! Sorry I've been AWOL lately. I'm trying to do better this year.

BB... Hey, I think you're on to something there with those store names.

Miss Ann... LOL! Yes you are! I'm wondering what the criteria are for these blog "evaluations"?

Roy... You're a hoot! I just remembered that "dyscalculia" is on this page.

Karl... Maybe you should randomly use big words just for fun? :D

My blog's reading level? Elementary School.

I defy any elementary school student's to know some of the naughty words I use over there!
