On Fire In Dallas: Getting A # At Baggage Claim & Getting Pulled On Stage

What a week it has been, but we made it to Friday, and there’s happiness in that!

My week has been a busy blur of airplanes, buses, and finding myself in awkward situations with men.


On Monday I flew out to Dallas with Megan to meet up with the rest of our team for a 3 day work trip.

imageUpon arriving in Dallas, Megan and I headed to baggage claim, and while we were waiting for our bags, she got to telling me a story about her parent’s and their suitcases. I pointed to a man walking from baggage claim and pointed to his suitcase, asking Megan if the suitcase she was referencing in her story was like the man’s in front of us. Well, the man saw me point to his bag, and immediately asked if he had my bag. I was quick to tell him no, and that I think he had his bag.

I blame the next event on his friend giving him crap for using a pick-up line on me. At this point, suitcase man asked me where I was from, what I was doing in Dallas, what I do for work, and then he smoothly asked me if we were going to dinner that night. I said no, and then he asked about breakfast the next morning. I entertained him by telling him yes, and then what do you know, I had his phone number. Megan would not let me live this down, and over the next few days I was asked if I had texted suitcase Harry. No, you guys, no I did not. Mostly because he lives in D.C., and I have a date tonight that I am incredibly excited about.

The next incident happened the next night at a work event. We had a dinner and a show with our members, and it was extremely fun. Here I am with my work friends!

imageAnd then during one of the songs from the dualing piano show, one of the guys asked for a volunteer, to which he looked at me and said something along the lines of, “I’m looking at my blonde friend. Blondie, I want you. Come up here.” WHY?! So, I was brought on stage and he handed me a handful of torn up paper, to which he informed me to throw over our heads when he sang the words, “let it go.” Well, I missed my queue, and in the photo below, this is where he yelled at me for missing the moment. Mortified. Absolutely mortified.imageI will admit that I felt on fire after two nights in a row of having the men love me. Ha! The rest of the week flew by. Wednesday night we celebrated a successful work trip at Hulu Hut, where we enjoyed food and drinks on a deck overlooking the water. image4 days on the road, and I actually only worked out twice, giving myself two rest days, which my body loved. I’m so happy to be back home in my routine of things. This weekend will be low key, but fun, starting with a date tonight, which for the first time in a long time, I’m actually looking forward to.

I hope you all enjoy your weekend — it’s supposed to be sunny and 90 all weekend long, so I will be enjoying the sunshine!

What do you have planned this weekend?

If you live in D.C and want suitcase Harry’s number, just let me know. He was very tall and cute! 😉

Back In My Routine & Photo Dump

Oh I am just so happy to be home and back into my normal routine of things! I’ve had 2 really great amazing nights at my apartment and 2 even better workouts. As always, I ended up prepping and bringing my own food, and I hit my macros spot on all week. I made Sunday and Wednesday rest days due to travel, and got short workouts in Monday and Tuesday. By giving my body rest and following my macros, I only managed to gain half a pound during the 4 days that I was gone.

Anyways, before I check out for the weekend, here’s a quick look at my 4 days in Dallas!

“Working” Sunday evening, but more like hanging out with my coworker Kellie and our member Blake, and helping other members during the rushes. We basically just made sure our members had an up to date version of the Apple software on their iPads, installed our app, and gave them instructions from 4-8 pm.

imageOnce we finished working at 8, we decided goofing off was the best remedy for a long day.


This was the view from our balcony!image

And one with me in it because why not?!image

This, along with a casein shake, was my night-time treat. This bar is SO good! It’s a NoGii Chocolate Caramel Bliss Protein D’lites. I received 4 in my Spring PrettyFit pack. Oh my gosh, these are so good and I need more. They legit taste like a candy bar!image

1 of the 2 mornings I had the gym pretty much all to myself, which is great because I hate working out with others!image

And this was the view on my walk from the gym to my hotel room… so pretty!image

I squeezed in a 5 minute break to enjoy my mid-morning snack of a banana with pre-measured peanut butter away from the craziness of work.image

Long days make us go crazy and get super goofy. Just gotta embrace the crazy sometimes!image

Staying on track even means bringing your food scale with you. I only used this for my bananas since they are so high in carbs. I needed to make sure that I hit the right number for grams to stay on track! You can call me crazy but if staying on track keeps me happy and sane, then so be it!image

On Tuesday night we celebrated the work trip being over. I enjoyed a migraine from Monday morning until Wednesday afternoon, so while everyone stayed out until midnight or later, I was back in bed by 9:30.imageTell me what the best picture was that you took all week!

What are your weekend plans?

I have my best friend’s bachelorette party!!! 🙂

I’m out here until Wednesday morning for work, and my weekend wasn’t exciting at all. It was really spent sleeping, running errands, and meal prep for the trip.




Catch you later, and hopefully with a cowboy!
