Introduction and an explanation

Hi there.  Welcome to my world.  You might find it disturbing, insightful or just plain weird.  Whatever you find it to be, at least try to keep an open mind.  There is a shortage of open-minded people in this world.

Firstly, an explanation of the blog title.  This is the best metaphor I can use to describe what I’m about to do.  I’m going from a size 16 to an 8.  In my view, that’s going from a school bus (think of the big yellow cheese wagons that you rode to school in): big, not very efficient, slow and always having to stop for various reasons.  That’s me right now.  I’d like to think of myself as a red Ferrari when I get to an 8: sleek, sexy, and something that everyone dreams of having (and only one lucky man gets!).

On the road to my goal self, I’ll be changing shape.  From a school bus (size 16), to a Chevy Suburban (size 14), Nissan Terrano (size 12), Toyota Camry (size 10) and Ferrari (size 8).  A girl’s gotta have goals.  I like cars.  Don’t know a lot about them, but I like them.  And I like the idea of being, in my mind at least, a red-hot Ferrari.  I mean, didn’t you want one when you were a kid??  What about now?  Be nice, wouldn’t it?

So, that’s just an explanation of what the blog is about.  Not really an introduction per se.  As intros go, my age will change later this year, so no point in letting you know what it is (besides, a lady doesn’t tell her secrets or her age), what I do or who I’m doing it with.

Tomorrow morning, bright and early, I start the 30 Day Shred.  Apparently, this is a 20 minute hard-core workout from The Biggest Loser’s Jillian Micheals.  I previewed it, thinking it would be easy.  I’ll let you know.

Vroom vroom.
