what a week

    back from vacay is hard to adjust to! I started the week so refreshed and ready to kick ass at work! I started off with some les mills and felt AMAZING lifting again. the gym on the boat was very impressive but it has been so long since i’ve worked out in a gym so i was feeling intimidated by the machines for some reason. weak excuse, i know. at least i made it to the gym? in any case i started the week ready for what lay ahead. and boy was it a shock to my system! work was completely bananas and i worked a million hours and got way less than enough sleep. woke up with a headache every day and was just exhausted all day long. got a bunch of starbucks and wanted an afternoon redbull (didn’t have any though). Since i was so exhausted i made millions of excuses to not work out after those first couple days back. i hate weeks like that. but they happen to everyone. i’m sure even tony horton has bad workout weeks. the important thing is to try again this week, right? I’ve fallen off the food wagon so hard this weekend too but getting back on this week (currently have a sugar headache from the almond dream ice cream i just devoured). the important thing is not to say “well i might as well quit since i messed up” but to try again. and again. and again. because i’ll have weeks like this again. and i can’t let them stop me. i just have to remember how amazing i feel after a hard workout. and a day of clean eating. back at it tomorrow! tonight, well, i’m going to a vegetarian place i’ve never been so really who could blame me for trying everything?

    ORD>MIA

    i have so much love for ORD. This airport truly has my heart. it’s like home. ive spent more time here than most places im sure. i move a lot. i love change. but o’hare has been here since my first flight at a year or two old (florida) and while it has changed leaps and bounds since then it’s still so comforting to be here. i remember one of my first times coming here alone, probably in college, i realized how comfortable i was. i know where my favorite bars are. my favorite bookstores. where the restaurants are and what the good gates are. except terminal 2. or terminal 5. but terminals 1 and 3 i got you!

    HOWEVER. the lack of outlets is astounding. it’s 2013. everyone has something they want to plug in. and you KNOW there will be delays… we’re in chicago for goodness sake. so hook some peeps up and give us some power strips! the B concourse in terminal 1 has a nice power area but if youre traveling with others you have to find places that have two seats open #impossible.

    in other news… i cant wait to go on my cruise and rock the track on the boat! im really hopeful that it’s not overrun by little kids in the morning. or too rocky with the motion of the ocean. and hopefully i’ll be brave enough to lift (i get weird in foreign gyms). and hopefully i’ll have the willpower to say “why yes… a g-bomb salad sounds delicious! fruit for dessert you say? love it!” send me thoughts of willpower and i’ll send you thoughts of warm sunshine and crystal blue waters!

    xoxo

    this will be my home for the next week. tonight i will be far far away from the 1 degree of chicago and in the warm muggy awesomeness of miami. Then starting tomorrow, i’ll be living on this beautiful boat for a week! that’s right… completely cut off from facebook and texting… work and stress… it’s going to be glorious! i’ve been kicking ass at eating awesome and working out (besides the caramel crunch pie thing i had the other night) and i hope to keep it up on the cruise! wish me luck!
