I laid in bed last night dead tired.  Wishing myself to sleep.  Kept checking..nope im not dreaming I am awake.  I’m really hot but I dont want to get up and check the air because then that definitely means I’m awake.  But the air is on why am I sweating.  Do I have scarlet fever or maybe the black plague.  Well my last physicals checked out well so I guess they would have detected it.  Although they did all tell me I suffer from anxiety.  Maybe that’s whats going now.  My body is working against me and giving me this weird adrenaline feeling while at the same time feeling dead tired.  Oh yea I had a huge coffee earlier today to try to make myself feel like a semi normal functioning human.  But my body is ridiculously sensitive to caffeine. I always seem to forget that in the moment.  Sleep is one of my favorite things and without a significant amount of it I am not myself and I feel worthless…and dont have as much defense up to fight against the anxiety that glooms over me like the LA smog.  I put in to action my best plan to make today productive.

Enter exhibit A-I will always get out of bed for you my dear

whipped banana oatmeal with vanilla protein and chia seeds

Eat read blogs eat read blogs..get sad as the bowl twindles..tell Rodney I actually feel sadness coming on..then it happens.  Every. Time.
But my stomach was happy and so were my taste buds.  And the walnuts are supposed to help brain function so im really counting on that today.
Enter exhibit B-
 Such a vicious cycle. So now I feel human..maybe even productive..atleast for a few hours..

Dork. Oh Hi lady coming out of the bathroom yes I am randomly taking a picture like this.

And because I am a big believer in the power of visualization I have been picturing myself at one of my most favorite..if not number one  Gramercy Park Hotel in New York City…So so many good times.  Incredible design.  Invigorating.  Inspiring.
Feast your eyes on all its bohemian glory.  NYC has my heart.
Ian Schrager is a genius.
Insomnia I got something for you tonight…even if you are thinking about making an appearance..Ambien will be happening.  Tomorrow I will be back to normal.
Happy Tuesday

Oh monday you come every week with a vengeance.  You never ask my permission you just show up taking with you all the gloriousness that is the weekend.  But with monday comes the feeling of freshness.  Today was a good day for me.  Although it was a hectic first half. I desperately wanted to keep sleeping after the alarm rang its loud bells.  It was a late night after a chaotic scene picking up the boy from LAX.  But alas I rolled over and saw that it was indeed monday and I had to get up.  I will always skimp on hair and make up before I skimp on breakfast.   So a delicious egg burritos was consumed. Rush rush rush…enter large coffee…work work work…managers finally leave to catch their flight and with them the deadline was finished.

After a slow second half I was looking forward to my workout at Circuit Works Venice.  I love the feeling after a hard high intensity circuit training workout.  I feel strong and a strong sense of accomplishment. One sense of accomplishment just leads to the craving for another and another and another.  I have been feeling on a roll with my workouts.  I sometimes slip off the healthy living train and it feels so good to get back on.  The past few weeks I have been consistent with my workouts and that is really key.  Even if you can’t do much in a day do something that will make you feel good.  Lately that has been running and a lot of yoga.  Consistency is the key to making it a real habit and part of your life.  And when things get off track Monday always rolls around with a new week to start over and be the strong accomplished person you want to be.  I intend to stay on my roll.  Who’s rollin with me? 🙂 It makes me a better me for me and for everyone around me and who doesn’t want that.

Oh and operation feel good in a bikini starts now…think Britney circa 2004.

Brit Brit Ill always love you..but Im coming for your abs..well your old abs but you only get better with age.

Total resemblance right?

Just put a boa on my neck wipe the shine off..serious yuck keep it down on the sunscreen next time..and put me on stage.  I’m still trying to learn that bikini confidence that some people seem to have so naturally…but fake it till you make it right!  In fact I’m sure most are.  I live in So Cal and that’s how we roll.

I could go on about women and our insecurities…but thats a whole different post.  Off to be really lazy.

Please brag about your workouts!
