TRX Bootcamp Holiday Party 2013

For the entire year, my bootcampers and I get together each week. I lead them, they work hard, and we have a good time. However, we’re all tired, sweaty, and not looking our best because it’s either 6am and we’ve just woken up, or it’s 6pm after a long day. I wanted to make sure we all had a chance to get together, dress up, and NOT think about burpees, so I threw a Holiday party and hired my friend, Missy to photograph it… so we’d all have proof that we clean up nicely! And here it is:

Pretending to eat like an animal… and getting photographed while doing it. 
Can’t win ’em all…

Ashley couldn’t attend, but got everybody together to get me a gift. 

Every trainer’s ideal gift: A Lululemon gift card! 
Thanks, Ashley for organizing that and thank you to my bootcampers!
Can’t wait to go shopping. 

My man-friend wrote the sweetest RSVP decline on the Evite, unaware that
everybody else could see it. Everybody thought it was amazing, as did I, so they re-read it.  
Major points were scored.

Kennedy helped hand out all the gifts while I did acknowledgements. 

Expressing my gratitude to work with such amazing people each week. 

Jennifer and Hill hosted the party. Couldn’t have done it without them!

Even my mom came to support me! 
Thanks, Mom!

Pumpkins, Punkin

We had a pumpkin carving party the other night…
Guess which one is mine?

Have any of you carved a pumpkin lately? It had been a really long time for me and I was pretty excited. I even grabbed a kit that had a bunch of different designs and all the tools to help you out.
Surprise:
It was way harder than I remember.
Or my pumpkin kit was just janky.
Either way… after a lot of sweat and frustration, my pumpkin is finished and on my porch. We’ll see how long it takes the neighborhood kids to come steal/smash it… Happy Wednesday!

Talk Derby To Me…

I’m not sure if you’re aware, but here in Louisville, KY, on the first Saturday in May, we hold this little event/party called THE KENTUCKY DERBY. And it’s here again. This weekend. It’s kind of a big deal. And I’m home (meaning I’m living in KY, not CA, like the past 4 years).

The Derby Festival lasts for 3 weeks. It starts with Thunder Over Louisville, a HUGE fireworks show, and includes events like the Pegasus Parade, the Great Steamboat Race, and the ever-famous Chow Wagon. That’s right, people. That’s right.
And it’s going to be fantastic. F’ing fantastic. If y’all want to come down and hang, you let me know. I’ll be here. I’ll even make you a Mint Julip. ; )
I’ve been prepping all week because the entire city shuts down for it and nobody works tomorrow (Oaks Day) soooo I’ve had to get a lot of stuff done in three and half days, which is why you haven’t heard from me all week. Sorry ’bout that. Images 1, 2, 3, and 4. Cinco de Mayo today, Oaks Day tomorrow, Derby on Saturday… Go Baby Go!

Five Reasons Today Rocks

~I’m off to Texas this weekend to teach another awesome 8-hour TRX Training Course, so I’ll catch up with you guys on Monday! Happy Friday!
Here are 5 reasons today rocks:
1. One of my clients had a 5 week assessment today. She’s lost 4 pounds and 6 and a half inches so far because she works hard! She does what I tell her, she gets results. YES.

2. The St. James Court Art Fair is this weekend and I’m going with my mom later! This is an art event that brings all kinds of artists from all over the country to Louisville every first weekend in October, every year. I’ve missed it for the past 4 years and CAN’T WAIT to go again! And I get to hang out with my mom. Double Score.

3. Committed, the book I’m reading is REALLY good. I’m flying this weekend. I need a GOOD book with me when I fly, because flying freaks me the heck out. And I do a lot of flying. If the book sucks, I start thinking about my plane falling out of the sky. GOOD BOOKS ROCK.

4. The Inner Strength Bootcamp Happy Hour part-ay is tonight!!! All of our past, present, and maybe future bootcampers get the chance to mingle and have fun whilst smelling and dressing nice. I may not be recognizable tonight.

5. I get to hang out with my husband tonight! We haven’t seen a lot of each other lately because I work late every night with classes/clients and have been out of town the past 6 weekends in a row. So tonight, we’re getting fancy for the party and I get to show him off (because he’s awesome) to all my bootcamp pals. – photo by 927 Photography. duh.
