Weekly Wrap Up 9.29.12

Guess what?  I am so close to being done now with my book!!  I had a contest this week to find an artist to do the cover.  Thank you to those of you who threw your hat in the ring.  I've narrowed it down to 4 artists and I should have my decision and my cover by the end of the next week.  I am beyond excited.

Top Read Posts This Week:

The Beginning of My Transformation - I've been given an opportunity to work out with a personal trainer and I couldn't say "No."  It meant so much to me to have so many positive comments come through.  Thanks so much for your encouraging and supportive words and I look forward to sharing more with you about getting my ass kicked twice a week.  Yesterday was my third workout so far and today I can barely bend over I'm so sore, BUT I already have a ton more energy.  Pros and cons, I guess.

What the Hubs Thought We'd Do All Day While the Kids are at School - The Hubs has a one track mind.

Lock & Load - Moms Night Out at the Shooting Range - Yippee kay yay, motherfuckers.  I went to the shooting range with a bunch of moms who have never shot a gun.  It was a hilarious night and I'm ready for the Zombie Apocalypse.

Farmer Jeanne & the Apple Orchard - Last week I went with Adolpha's class to an apple orchard where we were yelled at the entire time by the farmers.  Believe it or not, I paid for this experience.

HuffPost mentioned the Hubs this week in their Parenthesis column.  He was really surprised and quite pleased.

Message Board Update:

A reader named Lori started a new thread this week about people being mean and nasty on the web.  If you don't want to talk about this topic, there are lots of other good topics on the board too or you can start your own.  Did you know that when you comment on the message boards a link to your newest blog post shows up?  That is a great way to find new readers for your blog and new blogs for you to read, so join the message boards today.  It's easy and fun.  


Most Popular Item in the PIWTPITT Store:

Everyone loves a good list and everyone needs a good pad of paper to make a good list.  Apparently I'm not the only one who feels this way since the most popular item this week (again) was the People I Want to Punch in the Throat Notepad.  Perfect for grocery lists or PTO meetings.





Read Me Ad-FREE on Your Kindle:

Love PIWTPITT, but hate the ads?  Subscribe on your Kindle and enjoy all the punches without any distraction.  While you're there, why don't you leave a review for the blog?  Even if you don't subscribe, just come by and leave a funny review.  Something that includes the words "life changing" and/or "amazeballs" would be great.  It would make my day.  I actually got a few reviews!  Thank you!!!!

My Favorite Comments of the Week (and My Response if Necessary): 
 


Go on with your bad self! p.s. Are you going to change this site to PIWTSITT People I Want To Shoot In The Throat?? ;) on Lock & Load - Moms Night Out at the Gun Range

I think I'll stick to imaginary punches. 

I think I would have been huddled in the corner with my fingers plugging my ears singing, "I can't hear that. I don't see any guns. It will all be okay!!" So you are bad ass and a mofo...or however you say that stuff. on Lock & Load - Moms Night Out at the Gun Range

You're right not to want a gun for zombie purposes. A gunshot is like a dinner bell for them. Crossbows and swords all the way. on Lock & Load - Moms Night Out at the Gun Range

My husband has told me that if HE were the one to stay home ALL housework would be completed at ALL times because in any given week there is no WAY that all housework should take more than 4 hours . . . for the WEEK. That includes ALL housework. Cooking, cleaning, laundry, cooking, getting kids ready for stuff...EVERYTHING. Ass. Men. They are delusional most of the time. on What the Hubs Thought We'd Do All Day While the Kids are at School

I would say, "Challenge accepted, Hubs."  
  
always amazed when wives brag about not having sex with their husbands... amazing on What the Hubs Thought We'd Do All Day While the Kids are at School

I'm always amazed when men who can't read come on this blog and make asinine comments . . . amazing is right. 

Mrs. Foster, I am in a similar situation. 5'2", over 200 and pinning workout and fitness info while I sit on the couch at night. Aggghhh. Must stop it and get motivated. No more excuses. I think I'd be successful with a trainer (I like having someone besides me hold me accountable) but I really can't afford one. I'm going to follow PITPITT through this and try and get myself moving again. on The beginning of my transformation

WOOO HOOO!!! Just when I thought I couldn't love you any more, now you're really speaking my language!! I am so freaking proud of you, girl, no shit! I was one of the ones that commented on Kim's post with my weight (gasp!), it was tough, but motivating. I am so proud of you for putting this out there, accountability is a great motivator! I am trained by a trainer twice a week too, and I often want to cancel (I dread it sometimes), but I don't and then when I am done I feel AH-MAY-ZING! Which is ultimately why I don't cancel the next time. I am so excited for you to just get healthy, fuck that scale, just feel like a better you - FOR YOU! Love! Devan on The beginning of my transformation

Good luck! I started working with a trainer almost 2 years ago and it was the best health decision I ever made. A good trainer knows how to push you without having you lose your motivation. on The beginning of my transformation

Good for you! Please don't punch Kris in the throat... no matter what she want you to do. on The beginning of my transformation

 I turned 39 this year and I feel ... well, old. Not mentally --- but my body... it's like... OLD. And so I went to see a dietician today. And she said I had to eat better and work out. And I knew that, of course. I'm making my body old by not using it. But I haven't used it for so long that I'm kind of scared to start. You know? But then I saw that you started... and maybe I can start, too. I'm so glad I saw this. So, very, incredibly glad I saw this. on The beginning of my transformation

My workout clothes are so proud of your workout clothes! on The beginning of my transformation
