No offense is intended if you're into McD's, but I am just not. I read Fast Food Nation, watched Supersize Me and Food, Inc., and have long since dismissed almost all fast food from my diet (Chick-Fil-A doesn't count, right?). Well, apparently boot camp brings out the McD craving in me, because I simply couldn't resist going through the drive-through and ordering not only an Egg McMuffin, but also one of those hash browns that kind of look like shoe horns. Before ordering, I was asked by the muffled, disembodied voice if I wanted to try the new [something] milkshake. A milkshake? At 6:45am? And we wonder why America has obesity/diabetes/heart problems.
Some of you expressed interest in the boot camp, so I'll be sure to post a link to the article once it's finished and published. I will give you a bit of a preview by saying that a boot camp is certainly an amazing way to maximize your work out time; you figure you'll have to spend about an hour a day being active to see results over time, right? Well, I'm seeing (and feeling) in just four days the toning and firming that would normally take a month or two (or three) of my normal aerobic (running, gym-going) work out to produce. It's definitely an efficient way to make fit happen. (see what I did there? Make fit happen...?)
If you're in Orange County, I recommend trying Total Training by Tammy, the camp I've been going to. Tammy is just great. I'm getting coffee with her this afternoon to talk about the article, but really all I want to do is just gab (did I really just use the word 'gab'?) about life and boys and making my clothes fit the way I want them to.
Oh, right- speaking of clothes...
My hair is getting long enough to flip out- something it's been doing on its own- and I've decided to embrace it. It makes me look peppy, does it not?
I realized when I got to work that both this necklace and this bracelet were purchased on separate visits to France (I have a cousin who lived in Aix en Provence for several years). Looks like I started a little, accidental tradition of buying red jewelry in France. You know, for my yearly trips out there....*cough*
This is the second time I've worn my new ban.do heart pin- I love it! So what if Jordan teases me that it's a bit "valentiney"? That isn't a bad thing in my book. Oh, and guess what? ban.do is currently giving 25% of all heart sales to Aid Relief in Japan. Unfortunately, I ordered mine a couple weeks ago, but if you order yours by next Tuesday, April 5th, a quarter of that goes to Japan!
