Shaping Up

weights 001

I found these in the floor of my closet the other day. They were just sitting there neglected and gathering dust.

Raise your hand if you think these will help me get into shape for my 45th high school reunion next month. I don't see any hands. Maybe I should have started months ago.

A few weeks ago LBeau attended a safety meeting at work. The topic for the day was exercise and weight control. Sometimes they broaden the definition of safety.

Anyway, see if you can come up with the three reasons most women want to lose weight and get into shape. I'll give you a hint. A class reunion is one of them, so now you only have to come up with two more. I'll post the answer later today.

Sorry, there's no prize for the first one with the correct answer, unless you want my cute little PINK hand weights.

bijw9y Happy Pink Saturday everyone. Be sure to visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for more Pink Saturday posts.

You can keep your pink weights--I have a set of dusty blue ones of my own! At least Lbeau did not buy the digital scale--they measure to the tenth of a pound!

Joyce said...

Well now there is the 30 day shred...supposedly in a month's time you're 'shredded'.

two more reasons? maybe swim suit season is approaching? feel younger?

Riet said...

Better late than never, how does that sound?
Happy pink Saturday

I just need to loose for no reason whatsoever. lol I guess wedding and after baby. Hugs, Marty

arkie said...

Yes, wedding and New Year. I am going to my 35th class reunion this year. I found a "new" set of weights - a baby grandson! He is much more fun to exercise with!

I would say the other two were wedding and swimsuit season. Of course it seems of late, I never get past the "thinking about it" stage.

My 2 guesses..swimsuit season, and to feel better.

PS...I've got the weights, too. I also have a tredmill. But, I think you have to actually turn it on and step aboard for it to do you any good.

And the weights...well, they are just soooo heavy.

Just Breathe said...

Reunion, yes, but my 40th is in October and I'm not going. There is no way I can get enough weight off to feel comfortable going. I was a size 0 in HS.
1. Reunion
2. Wedding of your child
3. Dream vacation/beach destination

Domestic Designer said...

I have a pair just like those. They look really pretty as an accent piece on the treadmill!:-)

Robin said...

My guess is Vacation and Health. (I wanted wedding too, but I wanted to choose something different....lol)

{{{HUGS}}}

I'm just popping by to say Hi as it's my first time on Pink Saturday. I loved todays post and I had to laugh at the post about the scales. That is just the type of thing my hubby would do :)

Thanks for sharing your blog with us. Have a great weekend :)

Claudia said...

I have some dusty weights of my own here at the cottage! Happy Pink Saturday!

Rachel said...

Hmm...I'd have to say 1. Wedding, and 2. Summertime and swimsuits.

I all of a sudden feel like I'm playing family feud!! What fun!

LV said...

I have been blessed with no weight problem. However, if I did I would enjoy using the pink weights.

CC said...

What a fun happening..a reunion. I sure hope you have fun and enjoy it. Happy Pinks..have a lovely weekend.

Mary said...

I love your photo of the weights. I guessing one is for a wedding. Another would be swimsuit. My outlier is to lose pregnancy weight.

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

So sorry that I am getting to you a day late and a dollar short for Pink Saturday. Seems like the day just got away from me.

The sun was out in the afternoon and all day today, so with all the rain we've had, I went outside to play.

As always, it is a pleasure to come here to see what you are sharing and what you've been up to during the week. Thanks so much for making my weekend all ♥Pink and Pretty♥
