An Assortment of Thoughts

First, the Kings of Leon BROUGHT IT in Louisville. I am SO glad I made the 5 hour roundtrip up there even though I just saw them in Nashville in November. Their set time came in at about 1 hour 45 minutes, but it is just a good rock show. The Whigs weren't half bad either.

Besides the burger and fries I had Tuesday night, my eating really hasn't been that bad. I have however not been keeping track of points or journaling. One of 2 things happens when I don't write down what I eat. I either lose all control or I am able to eat mindfully, but not carelessly and watch my portions. The past few days I have been eating mindfully and trying to listen to and anticipate my hunger. Some pretty stressful things, which at one time might had triggered stressing eat, did not do so this week. I have also been exercising pretty regularly as well. Speaking of exercise, I think I am going to start back up with Boot Camp in the mornings. I was talking to one of the trainers today at the gym, who does the morning sessions, and he was asking how I was doing and he seemed super excited that I was planning on coming back. I just wish it were outside. He said that once the temp hits 50 degrees they can move it outside. SO spring hurry up and get here!

I spent some money today. I bought a pair of jeans, a cardigan, 2 scarfs, some bracelets, and some makeup. So the jeans are black jeans size 16 low rise, slim leg, stretch, boot cut jeans. Normally I think I would have cried buying this size of jeans because most of my current jeans are in the 12-14 size category. However this is a low rise, SLIM leg jean. I do not have slim legs. at. all. The waist is a little big, but not so much that there is gaping in the back.

I am preparing for my trip to LA and SUPER nervous about the panel I will be speaking on, besides the moderator I am the only female. I am also the youngest person by YEARS. My roomie was pretty impressed when I showed her the website and who all would be at the conference. Basically a whose who of the entertainment/concert industry. And I am speaking in front of them?!?!? Well not all of them as there are 3 panels at the same time ;)

So, what am I going to wear in LA? That's a very good question. One that is stressing me out a tad and that I am still trying to figure out. Business casual will probably be the way to go.

Happy weekend!

delurking with a few words of NONWISDOM :) from my own experience. Business casual or ANY quirky casual always seems to be the LA way to go.

Wear a watch to show you're punctual. And carry a fax machine to show you're efficient!

skinny jeans and a really easy, relaxed top/tunic always does the trick for me. oh, and great shoes. sounds like you spent some money on a few choices of your own? can't wait for the report on the panel/trip/outfit!
