Last Confessions Before the Trip


|| I can't believe my birthday is tomorrow. HOLY COW how is 33 already here? Didn't I just turn 32?

|| My family was too sweet to me at my birthday dinner last night and I barely held back the tears reading their cards. There was a slight glimmer with each one, gah what am I going to do on Sunday?

|| I am the hibachi flying food catching queen!


|| Wednesday at work was sooooo busy I barely had time to eat which worked well with our hibachi dinner but I was still hungry after my meal so Le Husband and I went to the store for some extra whipped cream. #ilovewhippedcreamtoomuch

|| I accidentally ran a red light when turning left. I was exhausted from being up so late finishing up some trip planning that I saw a break in traffic and though it was a green light for everyone. Everyone was safe and there wasn't even any honking but I felt awful when I realized what I did. #morecoffeethenextmorning

|| Launch on Tuesday was AWESOME! My fellow instructor is incredible, he has such energy and he helped elevate my performance which made me feel so strong. We had over 100 people in class and we dropped it like a SQUAT! Below is what I shared on Instagram, lil video of class whoop whoop!

|| We just received the track lists for BODYPUMP98 and I'm geeked for the chest and lunge track.

|| An unexpected twist in our journey came up this week and I'm quite surprised by how calm I feel. #faith

|| I don't know how you night owls and late night working ladies do it. The past two weeks has been bed at midnight and up around 6am. It is constantly go go go and I am plum WORN OUT!

|| I'm a lil disappointed in myself and my blog planning. I had planned to prep at least three posts each week I was gone, but alas barely have one a week. Thankfully I know some amazing blog friends who are willing to turn around a quick guest post.

|| Yesterday I put a funny picture on my iPhone back ground as a joke with Sportyspice and now I kind of want to keep it there for motivation. #needtofindmyabsagain #aftergelatoofcourse

What are you confessing today?

I love that your birthday and Eric's is so close! It's his 30th on Monday!
I seriously got the weirdest feeling while reading this of missing you!! You're not even gone yet (and we haven't even met in real life.... YET!) but knowing the big changes that are coming your way, I just wish I could give you a hug! And pack myself up in your suitcase for your Europe trip ;)
