Hey friends! How’s the day going so far?
I spent a good amount of the morning today working on trying to get some things ready for Friday’s trip. I also ended up getting a package in the mail today filled with some goodies from SOYJOY to bring along with me.
SOYJOY is actually sponsoring my trip to the Blend Retreat, so I’m going to have lots of bars to hand out while I’m there. To anyone going, come find me and I’ll be happy to share the love!
The only thing I’m worried about is how they’re all going to fit. Oyy…
I’m notoriously awful at packing, which has got me totally thrown for a loop for my upcoming trip. The reason being is because I’ve decided that I’m not going to check a bag, which I think is the first time in history this is ever happening. Usually, I have no problem filling up my regular-sized suitcase…
But now I have to try and fit it all into that little purple carry on pictured above (pic from the old kitchen, wow). Ohh, good lord this is gonna be tough…
So if you happen to come across me while I’m at the Blend Retreat and something smells, it’ll probably me because I have no idea how I’m going to pack enough clothes amongst the rest of my crap.
I promise, I’m nice though, so that should make up for any stinky smells, right?
In between work this morning, I also managed to get in a pretty awesome treadmill workout. I was flipping through the pages of the latest issue of SHAPE Magazine, and came across a workout that they put together, so I put my own spin on things which ended up looking a little somethin’ like this:
It’s been a while since I’ve done the 40/20 HIIT intervals, so I kept my speeds out of the “insanely fast” zone, but it still ended up being a great run/walk routine and covers just around 3 miles.
Tonight I have my late shift at work, so I’ve got a few things to finish up around here before heading out. Just a heads up – be on the lookout for some and festive dessert recipes later on!
