B Party! And a little TMI…

If you’re a male family member of mine, go ahead and exit this page. 
Trust me. 
So I’ve got a Bachelorette Party this weekend 
in another city… 
can’t say which one yet
 as the Bride-To-Be is still unaware. 
But it’s a guaranteed good time. 
Can’t wait for a girl’s weekend!

I hope there are embarrassing games/moments for her, as there should be for any Bachelorette, but I hope there’s not a lot of penis paraphernalia… that’s not exactly my jam.

Which way do you go on B Party gifts? 
Massage Oil?
Gift card to Victoria’s Secret?

I’m that friend that gives all the embarrassing/you-know-you-secretly-want-them SEX TOYS. Because I know that my friends secretly want awesome sex toys/games/massage lotions, but they’d never be caught dead shopping for them, or saying that they want them. (I’m sure the grooms of my friends appreciate it though.) ; ) And I’m such a good friend* that I’ll take one for the team, go to the local novelty store, risk running into someone I know, and buy a ton of fun stuff. So that’s what I did Wednesday night. Luckily I made it out without seeing anybody I knew. Whew! All of that… so my friend can have an awesome honeymoon (if they can wait that long to use the goods). Yep, I’m a good friend.

*Brushin’ my shoulders off*

What’s your best B Party night?

*and maybe it doesn’t hurt me to go since I’m as single as they come these days… TMI? Maybe. Maybe not. You single ladies get me. ; )

Don’t Forget To Play!

Remember when you were a kid?
When your day wasn’t hectic. 
You didn’t have to work,
 pick up kids, make dinner, 
do homework, answer emails,
do laundry, etc. 
When’s the last time you went outside and played?
Make sure you take time each day to play… even if only for 15/20 minutes. 
Let loose, act like a kid! 
Kids only get about 15-30 minutes a day for recess when they’re young, but they still burst out of the school doors, run, jump, and scream for a little bit, then go back inside and focus. Do you ever wonder why you’re dead right after lunch and don’t know how you’re going to get through those last few hours at work? It’s because you haven’t had a chance to get some energy out! You SIT for hours and read/type/write. Your body is craving movement! Your mind needs a break! So find something fun to do, even if you don’t have that much time. 
It’ll help. 
At the Summit last weekend, we had 45 minutes before we all had to get ready for our group dinner. We could have laid around and watched tv (if we’d had tvs) but instead, a huge group of us ran to the hill, grabbed tubes, and hurled ourselves downhill OVER AND OVER again until we had to go inside to get ready. 
So don’t forget to hit the reset button and have some fun now and then…

TRX Summit 2012

So during our Summit weekends we start every morning out with a workout… 
The playing field: 
The action shot: 
We then stuff ourselves with tons of food for fuel. 
At the YMCA Snow Mountain Ranch, 
that requires you to walk across the way to the mess hall, 
in 3 degree weather. 
It’s pretty, but it’s COLD. 
At night we found a random place in Winter Park for dinner, 
where we were thoroughly entertained by this guy, 
who actually knew the song, Amie, 
which is my namesake and sang it for me!
And the swag bag with free gear never hurts either… 
A new TRX Force Tactical! 
more to come… happy Wednesday!

TRX Instructor Summit!

It’s time again for our annual TRX Instructor’s Summit. 
You know all these weekends where I travel to other cities and teach other trainers how to use TRX? Well, there are several of us (Course Instructors) floating around the country and once a year, we all get together to learn, bond, and have a sweet-ass good time. This was the photo from last year’s Summit in San Fran and our flag football game. 
This year’s Summit is being held in Colorado 
so that’s where I am now! 
I’ll be back on Tuesday with some fun photos from the weekend! 
Happy Friday, guys!

From Warm to Cold

It’s been SOOOO nice here this week! Every day in the 60s or warmer has me thinking lovely thoughts of an early spring and has Tang thinking of park visits EVERY day of the week again. We’ve made it there the last three days in a row and are soaking it up. 
So, naturally, it’s time for me to head somewhere cold —> Granby, Colorado. 
Be back in a few days!
