Celebrating 4/20

I'm going to celebrate 4/20 by getting high (on endorphins). I'm not ashamed to admit in past years I've celebrated 4/20 with a big fat Bob Marley Memorial *gasp* *I hope you're not too shocked or offended*. I know it's not healthy but everyone needs a vice, right? Anyway ... this year I'm going to celebrate the 4/20 holiday by getting high on endorphins with two of the most inspiring weight loss bloggers.

The no-nonsense, straight talking, weight loss rock star, Tony, the Anti-Jared has challenged Jen, the amazing original Prior Fat Girl to a 99 minute StairMaster challenge on 4/20 and they have invited us all to join them in getting good and sweaty. I remember being inspired by their last challenge and I'm sure this one will be just as good except, sadly, we won't have Jen's Mom to cheer us along this time. I know she'll be there in spirit encouraging Jen and everyone else. I can hear her saying "it's on like Donkey Kong" now.

Not only has Tony challenged Jen to 99 minutes on the StairMaster (imagine the thigh burn) but he also raised the stakes up a notch. They both have to get at least 200 people to commit to working out for over 60 minutes on April 20th. Any workout will do. You can walk, jog, wog, run, do a home video, play on your Wii, do jumping jacks, swim, bike, hit the gym, rake leaves, dance, have sex, whatever you feel like doing that gets your heart rate up and makes you good and sweaty. I'm sure Jen would love to see your glowing, post workout, sweaty pictures too.

RSVP at Tony's or Jen's blog and make the commitment to get high on 4/20. If I make it for the full 99 minutes I may still celebrate the ol' traditional way. Bob would want it that way, Mon. Get in the circle, join the challenge and get high on those endorphins. Ya Mon. Peace out.


  1. You know...for a minute I feared you were a white
    april 20th is Hitlers birthday. Why do I know this...the columbine shootings. How funny it's also a day to celebrate Bob Marley...
    Much better in my opinion...already signed onto to Tony's side of things.
    Good luck getting your sweat on.

  2. I'm far from offended ;)

    Have fun for me too!

  3. HI. I've never heard of this holiday and had to look it up!

    Good luck in taking on the challenge - what a great idea!

    Bearfriend xx

  4. Glad your joining the challenge! Can't wait to hear a recap! :)

  5. Oh my goodness, a weight loss blogger who smokes up?! We're not all cookie cutters (lol)?! Enjoy the day how you see fit. ;o)

  6. I'll be celebrating old school style with a bike ride to hippy hill, then kickboxing, yoga, birthday party. Endorphins are awesome.

  7. Haha- I'm living up in BC canada so um, not offended. At all.

    Good luck on the challenge ;-)

  8. OMG I laughed out loud about your 4/20 reference....let me just say, it's no longer my thing, but Dwayne can definitely hang, lol. Do you know the smoke cloud I'm going to have to endure in our itty bitty condo at the beach? lol

  9. Thanks for letting me know about the challenge. I haven't been on my treadmill in almost 4 months. PERFECT opportunity for me to get back on the wagon!!
