Leaving On A Jet Plane

Literally. My flight is about to board to ATL where I will get my connection to Seattle. Yeah!

I went out last night and got 3 hours of sleep. Yeah for fun! Boo for having to get up at 3:30 AM. Good thing I don't have a problem sleeping on planes.

I know I said I would update and I have started, but I just haven't finished the post...

Boot Core and Humidity

I am working on the LA update. It's going to be huge.

But in the mean time I am still doing my boot core classes at 5 AM (had a 1.5 week hiatus due to travel). I have been trying to step up my intensity in class and my individual workouts and make wise eating choices in an effort to make sure my bridesmaid dress fits. I tried it on on Sunday for good measure and it fits, but it is a tight squeeze...I don't want another incident a la the spring wedding I attended in 2007 with my mom and she was telling me to suck it in so my dress would zip. Did you know that ribs are really, really hard to suck in? I might even say impossible.

So yeah, boot core class outside at 5 AM in 80 degree humidity. It is intense. Especially with lots of running. One girl threw up on Friday and I wasn't there to witness it. I will say that I am becoming quite the runner (even though I still hate it). I am not huffing and puffing like some of the new young guys in my class. I know I shouldn't compare myself to others, but the fact that I am in better cardiovascular shape than 2 of the guys in my class brings me the tiniest bit of accomplishment and satisfaction.

Humidity please go away. Seattle on Saturday. Please get here soon! I can't wait to be back in the Pacific Northwest.

Where Will I Be on Saturday?

Major update will be coming later today, but since I am having trouble focusing at work, I thought I would take a break and let you all know that I am super excited for this:

Oh KEXP, how I love thee. I am SO excited to see The Helio Sequence. I am also excited that I get to hang out with my long time friend and fellow blogger Alethea at this show!

P.S. I just ate a small piece of cheesecake and it was definitely worth every calorie.
