I have some exciting news for y'all!!! Guess what??? While I know that I was a bad girl and didn't write a new Fat and Fortune entry yesterday -- I have a great excuse. I was too busy Googling information about Thailand! Yes, that's right - yesterday I got permission from my amazing boss to take three weeks off in January so that I can go to Thailand! Yay! I will be going with Lee, and I am sure we will have a blast. This gives me even more reason to behave (eat clean, exercise mean) and get a rockin' beach body! Woot woot.
Also - I am taking Monday off and heading to Banff for the weekend. Lee and I take off tomorrow morning. More yay! It's going to be so awesome to have a mountain weekend getaway. And hopefully I'll get lotsa exercise the natural way by hiking around. I just gotta remain strong and not give into tempation. Usually in Banff, I love to visit Grizzly House and feast on fondue. I also like to get wasted!!! Drink lotsa cool microbrews and pound back some wine. So this time, I gotta somehow summon the power of a saint. It won't be easy. One good thing, however, is that our hotel room has a kitchen suite, and so I will be able to bring my shake mix and shake supplies. And as for eating out, sushi is always a great option, as is any kind of meat & veggie meal.
Today was a Friday, so of course I had a session at Fitness First with John. He was really encouraging, as I was sort of tired, and less spunky than usual. I had a bad sleep last night and I am usually a little burnt out by the end of the week anyway, so it can be hard to giver. I did do my entire routine plus twenty minutes of running though - so I am proud!
Some of you hawk-eyes may also have noticed that my blog now has an ad on the right hand side. I am experimenting with "monetize" - it's a feature of Blogger that allows me to place an ad on my page, and I get paid if anyone clicks on it. Not sure if it will work, but since the whole point of this blog is to discuss my efforts to make a fortune, I figure I at least have to give it a try. So far, it's been on my page for one day, and there have been no clicks, so I've made no money. Not surprising, really. I will watch it for a week or two and see how it goes, and if it sucks, I'll just get rid of it.
I will do my best to post a blog entry from Banff - but no guarantees! I might be wayyyyyy uppppp on a mountaintop, or taking in the sights form the gondola. So just in case - I wish everyone an amazing weekend!!!
