I’ve been part of the blogosphere for a while as a reader and only a couple of months as a writer but I’ve always been intrigued when I meet guest bloggers on my regularly read blogs. I love getting new perspective and finding new places to visit. So I was nothing short of thrilled when I found out about a site called The Indie Chicks... An online magazine for passionate, ambitious women craving inspiration, motivation and a community of like-minded chicks? And they wanted me to write for them. Seriously, sign me up. Their site launched yesterday and you should definitely go check it out. Plus, you can find me there :) Nothing bad with a little self promotion right?
And for anyone coming here from The Indie Chicks, welcome! Glad you found me. I love new friends. You can read more about me here.
By the way, my post couldn’t come at a more appropriate time. Not only did I spend a weekend enjoying myself, and will be heading to Mexico in 22 days but I’m also spending the next 5 working days at a photo shoot. Days like these make me realize how cool my job is. I get to hang out with models, photographers, stylists… but I’ll also be in a studio all day – no lunchtime access to the gym and I’ll be surrounded with tons of treats and temptations. I’m serious. Doughnuts, muffins, candy, trail mix, cookies… I have a hard time avoiding everything for one day in the studio. Five is going to take all the will power I can muster. Wish me luck.
And because I’m not able to get my lunchtime workout in, I planned on getting up this morning and riding the spin bike but somebody (ok, me) stayed up too late last night watching TV… The Biggest Loser finale was on and while I’m super bummed Kim didn’t win I’m glad Jeremy took it over Condo. And then after that we decided to watch a DVR’d episode of CSI Miami (Horatio is such a stud). Instead, I’m planning to do a Jillian and 20 minutes worth of spinning when I get home. I’m super excited because I’m having brussels sprouts with dinner tonight and those things take a while to roast so I figure I’ll get a little sweat session on and then have a healthy dinner (we’re doing stir-fry as well).
Oh and by the way, yesterday I did my best workout of the week, minus the frog kicks and crunches and it was still a killer but I’m thinking the frog kicks really pushed things over the edge because I’m not quite as sore as I was last week. There’s always tomorrow though so you never know.
Ok that’s it. Off to the shoot. Have a good Wednesday and let me know what you think of The Indie Chicks. There’s a lot more fashion/lifestyle content than I find on my usual blogs and that’s not my area of expertise so hopefully I can learn some things.
