Nervous Excitement!!

So much going on lately that I have not been blogging as much!! Tomorrow is going to be a busy day. Wednesday's I work until 6 then I am going straight to my yoga class. It is a special class that will last an hour and a half. Lots of individual instruction by candlelight, light refreshments along with wine or tea. I am really looking forward to it. I could use some help on a few poses!! 

Then I will be heading home to finish packing for Fitbloggin!!! Super excited yet super nervous too. This is honestly the first time I will be going away for a few days alone. I know that sounds weird but I have never stayed in a hotel room alone. Even though Baltimore is only about an hour away I have never driven into Baltimore alone either!! Let me just get myself to the hotel and then I will be fine. It will be so fun to meet other bloggers and there are so many of my favorites attending!!! First on the agenda is a tour of the McCormick Spices Headquarter in Hunt Valley MD. We are meeting in the hotel lobby Thursday morning then taking buses over. We have been told to come hungry! There will be plenty of cooking demonstrations and learn all about their spices. Thursday evening will kick off the event with a Welcome Mixer and Badge Decorating Party. By this point I hope to have made plenty of friends!!!

After work I headed over to Old Navy to check out their new skinny jeans/cords and some pretty amazing colors!! 

I loaded up tons of stuff and headed to the dressing room.

I honestly was not wild about them. I liked the fit of the cords better then the jeans. They are SUPER SKINNY!! I am usually an 8 but they felt snug all the way down to the ankle, but the 10 were too loose in the waist. I loved the blouses. The colors are all so pretty. Even though we will be wearing workout clothes for the most part this weekend, I still wanted to have a few nice blouses. 

Food journal for Tuesday.

Last night I did a mile on the treadmill then switched to the elliptical. I wore the weighted vest for the entire 45 minutes that I worked out and had a great sweat going!! Today, I decided it was a rest day. I hope to get up early tomorrow to get a few miles in before heading to work!! I am nervous about missing my long run on Saturday and I have to figure out when I can make it up!!! 

My packing has begun. I wish I knew what everyone else was packing or wearing!! I wonder how dressy the evenings will be? Worried to wear heels and do anything to mess with my ankle. I guess I will find out soon enough. :)


  1. Love the shirts! I am going to have to check those out down here. Have a great time at Fitbloggin! I wish I would have known about that, as that is something I would love to attend. Next year for sure! Can't wait to hear how you like it.

  2. You're going to have so much fun! A tour of the Mccormick spices headquarters sounds like a blast! I would love that. And I am loving colored skinny jeans! I need to get some new ones now that I've lost some weight!

  3. I cannot wait to read about your adventure at FitBloggin! Have fun!

    1. Thanks Heather! I am super excited too. I will just feel better when I make it to the hotel without getting lost:)
