Just keep focused on that butt W5,R3

It’s been one of those kind of days, had every intention and told Miss Belle Bow Baggins that we would go out and high speed shuffle at lunch time until some uncaring clearly not lunch eating type of colleague decided to book a call with me, fear not I thought as someone else had cancelled a call at 2, I kept the appointment in my calendar so I could change in a style akin to Wonder Woman and sneak in a shuffle before the gauntlet of the school run ( clearly I would not clad the jelly belly in Lycra for the pure pleasure of all the done up to the nines school mummies) so I would have time for a shower and change, BUT NNNOOO, daughters school called at 13:45, she really should do drama GCSE as she had clearly convinced the school that at any time her head may spin and project vomit everywhere, once safely in the sterile environment of my car she clearly had a miraculous recovery, maybe I should rename my car the wholly one ??? So anyway long and short of it is no high speed shuffle till I took my boy to cubs.

At cubs I met my friend who is a runner, has no jelly belly and even in extreme temperatures I have never seen sweat, who once I told her what my plans she said”oh Fab, I’ll come with you”, WHAT !!!!! She is a runner, I’m a shuffler, with a swing on the jelly belly which may if she got too close smash into her tiny tiny frame and send her flying into next month !!!

So we set off, walk first very important, decided what we were going to bitch about etc, and then into my first ever continual 20 min run!, I had a cunning plan; remember the butt sniffing dog?, well I took a leaf out of his book, as it was a single track I said you go in front, now as she has in my mind a Perfect figure; I used this to my physiological advantage, I told myself that her butt was what mine should look like and the only way to get that butt was to keep focused on shuffling. Now this may sound all a bit benny hill but it worked, clearly not getting a small wobble free butt( although I still live in hope that will happen) but I keep going for the full time !!, I was so pleased with myself.

I did share my moment of motivation with her, I think she was just pleased I didn’t take her out with one foul swoop of the belly, lol.

On to week 6 I go x x

That is funny 🤗

Now I am too hot to wear full length running pants, the capri leggings are on, and tops are not that long .

I think of that line out of The National Express.. But it's hard to get by, when your arse is the size of a small country.... bad da bad da bad.......🤣🤣

My arse by the way, I would not comment on yours.

lol, that’s exactly the song I thought of when we passes a few people out walking, I didn’t hear any cries of man over board so clearly I don’t think the after effects of any wobble front or back sent enough shock waves to send them crashing into the water !! Lol x
