What is a "bottom line"???

According to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, there are numerous "bottom lines"...a biweekly alternative newspaper at the University of California Santa Barbara, the running scores and news for ESPN (the ticker at the bottom of the screen); net income (revenue minus costs and expenses); music venue in New York City's Greenwich Village; a World Wrestling Entertainment syndicated television show; catch phrase of Stone Cold Steve Austin and John Vespa; a publishing company...and my backside!!!!

For Entertainment Only...

Okay--it's Tuesday afternoon, I am getting ready to change my clothes and hit the pavement.  Was doing some final checking of email and ran across this...from the DoesThisBlogMakeUsLookFat.com.  I hope that this will give you a chuckle or two...

Ingredients for the Perfect Fitness Pal

1. Slightly larger butt than you.

2. No schedule conflicts so when you want to exercise she's available.

3. Has free passes to the local gym, fun fitness classes, Starbucks.

4. Sense of Humor

5. Gets that she's not the "trainer" and if you have a cramp you have a cramp.

6. Some days she'll let you know you're "perfect" at your current weight.

7. Some days she'll talk about her recent weight loss - which inspires yours as well.

8. Some days she'll agree - let's just use those Starbucks coupons and forget the workout.

9. She'll be disappointed if you can't work out - which makes you find the time.

10. She's not a complainer.

11. Her workout clothes don't match and consist of a BIG SHIRT and gross leggings - like yours.

12. She's Bob from Biggest Loser.

I would have to say that my ideal list order would look a bit different...but have included some comments here...

First on the list would have to be a sense of humor.  I cannot always laugh at myself...so I would need someone who would do this..and allow me to find the humor in the way I use a machine or how ridiculous I might look in Zumba class.  The fact that she's not a complainer will be a huge plus, too...because goodness knows I can complain with the best of the best.  (And this could be the primary reason that she will need aforementioned sense of humor--to keep from pushing me into oncoming traffic!).

Secondly, it would have to be the Bob comment...if I dare had Jillian, I would probably have to resort to some sort of violence at some point (like when she jumped on my back, for example!).  However, I doubt that Bob would wear some gross workout attire...hmmmm....And I am pretty sure that Bob wouldn't allow me to bypass any workouts...for Starbucks or any other excuse.  Maybe #12 on the list is not my #2...

All in all, this list is all inclusive with what my ideal workout partner would be like...and I think that we can all relate.  However, since I have yet to meet her (at least "her" that is geographically desirable and conducive to my workouts), I will just have to depend on me...Hopefully I can dig deep to find that sense of humor...

Hope you had a great Tuesday!!!


  1. Funny! I wish I could find me one of those partners too!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog. That was too funny. I laughed at so many on the list. I wear big shirts and old shorts and I even have a vintage pair of flowered exercise tights circa 1985 (that fit again). Must wear big shirt for the big tum tum / bum bum when I wear those. Cool you are in Woodstock too..I'm in Loganville, east jesus. I want to meet up with tammy too someday..I was just thinking it would be a hoot to have her come to my Sunday afternoon Zumba class. Maybe one day! we'll get you in to Zumba. It's all about the attitude. If you can do the Peachtree you can rock Zumba.

  3. That is too funny!! Jillian annoys me...I don't like screamers...tell me what to do in an "inside" voice please...guess that means Bob would be the better choice for me :)

  4. I used to have the greatest workout and diet partner. Until she moved away:( I called her my bosom buddy because we had a lot of laughs over her double Ds compared to my not-quite As and all the fake sizes in between at our gym.
