So, I am sitting here at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix, AZ. I am so hungry but what to eat? There is a dearth of healthy choices at the airport, you would think it might be different in the southwest, but it doesn’t seem like it.
In the last 24 hours I have gotten no sleep at all. I was driving into the airport and felt myself dozing off at times, it was a little scary, but who the hell else is driving me to the airport at 6:30 AM! I used the train for the first time, I usually park at the airport, but wanted to try the train this time, it really wasn’t that bad.
I am excited to be joining the rest of my team in Oceanside, CA. This is the start of a great adventure, I was supposed to crew last year but because of my big mouth, I was asked to leave. It’s tough to be a type ‘A’ personality. This year I am tempering myself, I’ll be like a male model and ‘just do what I’m told!’
I am hoping to get a workout in tonight at the Irvine Equinox, seeing as I am not out here to workout, but to work, I’ll have to watch my proverbial ‘p’s and q’s,’. I have thus far had phenomenal results, when I weighed myself yesterday I had lost another 5 lbs, I was surprised and not surprised as I know how I busted my ass for it. Turns out Gabriella and I were in the gym all SEVEN days last week. I didn’t even realize that. Obviously, this is juxtaposed to not being in the gym for the next 13 days or so, I spoke to Angela, and she is teaching a Whipped and Kettlebell class tonight which I’m going to try and get over to.
I am just hoping I can stay on track with my nutrition and get some kind of workout in while being on the road across the US for the next two weeks. I can’t believe how this has certainly become part of my lifestyle, if you asked me about this four months ago I would have said you’re crazy, but being in the reality and living in it, I surprise myself with my progress. My goal is to be down to 190 pounds by the end of the year, but if I keep it up, I may hit my goal by the end of the summer, and the summer hasn’t even begun.
I met Latisha, one of Gabriela’s friends out in Brooklyn Hts Equinox, she lost 120 lbs, basically she lost a human being! I thought that was so cool. Then I started to think, can I lose100 lbs, hmmm, I would love to but certainly would be tough. I keep thinking about all the ancillary things, like I’m going to have to buy new clothes, then again, now I can fit into all those clothes that I couldn’t look at before. All this sounds expensive! Well, just think of all the money I saved from not buying food.
I just got into San Diego, damn it is chilly here today. I will meet the rest of the members of the team and embark on yet another adventure!
