Something I've never said before as a parent, but am saying it now...

Devra says:

"This hurts me more than it hurts you." Who gets stiff and sore just from an fitness assessment? Who? Who? WHO?! Me. Evidently I also awoke this morning having an urge to write a blog post making me sound like a demented owl, but I digress.

For those of you wondering where exactly I hurt, for starters my arms. Had I known it would put me in this condition, I never would have whipped Sarah's ass in push-ups. I'm more than paying for it now. My legs ache which means going upstairs for any reason will pose some challenges. But, I am a problem solver. I always try to find a solution.

I am seriously considering living for the next few days on the ground floor of our house and bathing in the powder room sink.

Edited to add: For the record Sarah is exagerating for dramatic effect. Something I would never do. You can count on me to tell it to you straight; I did 26 push-ups. While the push-ups may have been easier for me given my proximity to the ground, Sarah had a big advantage with the Step Test. For the record, because I am not overly dramatic, the "Step" was practically as high as my neck and for Sarah it barely reached her ankle.

Thank God we don't exaggerate.

For the past month I've been getting up at 6:00 to work out. My bathing suit was whining from the drawer, and I knew I couldn't calm its fears until I firmed my abs! I found a new ab work out On Demand tv and my sides are so sore. In all my years of exercise and childbearing and child caring, I never even knew I had muscles where they now ache! Keep up the losing...love the site.

Good for you! I've been blogging about the Loser thing for a few months myself, and I'm nothing but glad (except when I encounter a particularly delicious cake or a rough day at the office). I look forward to seeing fitter you(s) at BlogHer! Me, too.

I'll be happy to kick your asses as necessary. Now could someone please kick mine?!

O...M...G...you guys, good luck and I so wish I lived closer. Because, I am such a "Loser Mom" AND a self-professed Queen of the Dorks!
