So I received my first sponsorship today, from Patricia in Washington. Very very VERY cool. Thanks!!

Also, my friend Rachael has offered to donate 20% of her PureRomance sales to me, if you mention my name. It's linked in this post, and I also have something in the side bar. It's really cool company that sells a bunch of romantic gifts. Valentines Day IS right around the corner!

Today I skipped my cardio workout, and instead ran around town. Wasn't too easy in the rain, but my car kept me dry, haha. I did do a one-on-one at my mom's Pilate's studio for about 90min, which would make my second impromptu personal training session this week. It felt good to loosen up all the muscles that my cardio tightens.

Mom also took me to Target and bought me a cute workout outfit, AND I got a Fuerza tank while I was at her studio. I think that after I get back from tour, I'm going to start training to be a certified Pilates instructor. It'll keep me in shape, and it can always be a source of income. Also, I'll probably take a year or so off from school after I finish my pre-chiro education (possibly a BA in Kinesiology) and I can teach while I save up money.

Pilates is so awesome, and it compliments Chiropractic. It's all about strengthening your core and spine, and it's all focused around posture! We're actually planning on opening my clinic once I graduate from LifeWest, and having mom's Pilates studio share the space. Keep everything in the family, huh?

I've got quite an exciting future ahead of me, I just need to remember to enjoy the things going on right now! So, in that ilk, I will now go watch some trash TV with my dog. :)

Falling into a routine.

Hey everyone,

The interval training is going really well. I guess when I first started it I wasn't doing it quite right, but now I've got it down pat. I'm not too good at it, but everyday it's getting easier.

The other day at the gym, nobody showed up for bootcamp, and Monique worked with me one-on-one. I also sent her information to my mom, who's looking for another reformer pilates instructor. Small world, huh? I also dropped off a sponsorship application to Angie at UltimateFitness...I didn't get to talk to her, and explain drum corps, so I hope I get a chance to sit down with her. Maybe she'd donate training sessions with Mo? Haha, that would work for me.

I've been going to the gym pretty much every day. I'm trying for 6am 5 days a week, but lets be honest: It's not happening. But, if it's lunch, or after work (like I'm about to go after I finish this entry) I still make sure to get there.

We got Send In The Clowns this week, true proof that I'm officially a member :) Boyfriend is at his OWN camp this weekend, so I'll have plenty of time this weekend to get the ol' horn to the chops.

Okay. I should get goin' to the gym, and then me and puppy have school tonight, and this weekend is full of busy errands.

Hope all is well with everyone!
