Working a Trade Show While Sick

I am currently dying on my couch while watching the Disney Channel because I’m 10 years old sick and can do whatever I damn well please.

It was a long day before I was able to park my booty on the couch, even though I did get out of work an hour and a half earlier.

I woke up feeling the worst I have all week, and as much as I wanted to call out sick, I had trade show duty today, and the last thing I wanted to do was screw over my coworkers.

So I sucked it up and squeezed in a workout to the best of my ability.


  • 3.5 mile run
  • 3 sets of 25 stair push-ups
  • 1 minute plank hold and :30 second side holds
  • 50 heel touchers
  • 30 toe touches
  • 50 crunches and 50 side-to-side crunches
  • 2 sets of 20 mountain climbers
  • Stretching

This little boy even watched me while I stretched and worked on my core. He’s such a cutie. All I wanted to do was play with him instead of workout.

I spent the first half of my morning at work, where I constantly blew my nose and banged my head against my monitor. I had zero appetite but forced a bowl of overnight oats into my mouth before leaving for the trade show, which really sucked since I wasn’t hungry.

This was my day. The man in the suspenders is an accurate indication of how exciting the visitors were, although I did keep my eye open for all of the babes. My conclusion was that all cuties wore a ring. Woof.

I had this basket next to me for a good 4 hours and managed to avoid the temptation. Not a single piece! Instead, I attacked the complimentary fruit bowls that The Radisson put out and grabbed an orange to get a little Vitamin C!

Okayyyyy, so I might have grabbed 3 additional oranges, 3 pears, 3 clementines, 4 boxes of mini raisins and other fun swag!

Grocery shopping done! 😉

I cleared the place out. I need help!

Alright, it’s time to go eat my raisins, oranges and continue watching little kid shows while I get a little energy in me to complete tonight’s P90X Kenpo X before vegging all night.

Happy almost weekend!

Needed: A Handsome Man to Bring Me Chicken Noodle Soup

My throat is more sore and my ass is sore and I had a midnight snack last night and there are so many ands in this sentence that my college English professor would cringe at, but I’m sick and everything gets thrown out the window and I’m allowed to write run-on sentences if I want to.

Sadly that’s not how it works. Bad days, sick days, kick ass days. It doesn’t matter what kind of day you have, there’s no excuse to stray from your healthy and smart ways. I could sit here and kick myself for snacking in the middle of the night (I won’t tell you that I demolished some peanut butter), but at this moment it’s a new hour and a new day and nowhere to look but forward.

I took it easy on my morning run since I’m a little under the weather and didn’t want to overdue it. I ran 3 miles and followed up with weights while jamming out to my Justin Bieber Pandora station. Seriously guys, you can make fun of me all you want but his station really pumps me up for workouts!


Morning Workout
* 3 mile run
* 1 minute plank hold
* 15 stair push-ups
* 2 sets 20 of mountain climbers and 1 set rock climbers
* 2 sets of 13 skiing dumbbell squats and 1 set of 13 squats with overhead dumbbell press
* 100 imaginary jump ropes

Side note dudes and dudettes. If this post looks “off” or not formatted, it’s because I’m blogging from my phone and we all know I hate writing lengthy things on this mofo. As a member of the grammar police, typos bug the shit out of me so if I have any, please ignore . I have absolutely no idea how to check my grammar on this sucker. 🙂

What I could really use is a cute boyfriend or just any delicious man to bring me a hot bowl of chicken noodle soup and crackers and then massage my shoulders and head.

So if you want to lend me your hunky boyfriend or know of any single men, send them my way… just make sure they bring me soup!

Monday Means the Weekend is Over.. Wah!

This morning I woke up again not feeling like my true self. Chelsey’s mom works at a hospital so she told me that I probably had a virus and that it should go away soon. I sure hope it does! I’m getting tired of having no appetite and not feeling 100%. At least today I’m not nauseous!

I ended up being quicker in my morning routine so I was blessed to have an extra 5 minutes to run this morning. I surprised myself with pushing out a 4 mile run, which I’m stoked about since I won’t be hitting the gym during the middle of the day like I normally do. Instead, I’m taking my lunch at 4 to leave an hour early so I can take the Monday evening spin class at 4:30.

Morning Workout

  • 4 mile run
  • 50 crunches and 50 side-to-side crunches
  • 25 reverse crunches
  • 1 minute plank
  • 2 sets of 13 squats with overhead dumbbell press, 8 lbs.
  • 2 sets of 20 mountain climbers
  • 2 sets of 13 standing side crunches, 8 lb. dumbbells
  • Stretching

This workout left me drenched in sweat and feeling great.

As good as that felt, I STILL didn’t have an appetite. I tried to make a protein shake for work but it was too soupy and wasn’t going to work so I sabotaged that idea. Around 10, I forced myself to eat oatmeal with diced walnuts in it, knowing I needed the calories and protein, regardless of whether or not I was hungry.

Unfortunately I didn’t take pictures on my workout or of my breakfast, but I will leave you with this handsome man, who I will be seeing Wednesday night.

The Other Kip… Nope, Not My Dog!

You are very welcome ladies. 🙂
