Livin' the Dream - Fort Mac Styles!

So I am up in Fort Mac - visiting my boyfriend, Lee, in camp, woot woot. It's been great seeing him, and very interesting to see what it's like up here.

Yesterday was my first day, and I have to admit, I was a little timid. Technically, I am not really supposed to be living in his room, and so I was kinda afraid to leave. I made him run lots of errands for me. Of course, I brought my blender and Vi-Shape shake mix with me, along with some flavour mix-ins and Vi-Trim (an appetite suppressant), as I am not going to leave my diet behind just because I am on "vacation." As such, I would get Lee to go grab me skim milk,ice and fresh fruit from the Caf for every meal. They have pretty awesome fruit here - including the usual suspects like apples, oranges and bananas, but also pineapple, watermelon, honeydew and cantaloupe. Not too shabby!

Today I went and roamed around freely, I guess I have become accustomed to the place. I went to the gym for about an hour, and did some major cardio, as well as parts of my workout routine that I normally do with John. It's kinda weird not working out with John, but I think I did good. It was also weird to be in a gym with dudes... I am used to working one-on-one with a trainer. The gym here is great though - lots of machines and weights and equipment.

I did fail at dinner though... I went to the gym, then showered, and by the time I went for dinner at 8:45, everything was shut down. So I grabbed milk and fruit for a shake... guess I will be eating 100% shakes today. This is new for me. So far though, I feel nice and full, just a little tired. It's so quiet and warm in here... makes me SLEEPY!!!!

I was hoping that there would be some guys in camp who want to buy Visalus shakes, due to the fact that they are full of protein and other awesome nutrients, which guys LOVE. So I made up a few posters with some Visalus info and my contact information, and brought them up here with me. I got Lee to hang them on the communal bulletin board. Please baby-Jesus, send me some Fort Mac customers!!! I know they get free food up here, and they might prefer steroids to healthy shakes, but c'mon, someone has got to have an interest.

I also tried out a new service to try and promote my business. The idea of it is super cool, but I am not sure if it's effective. It's called TwitHawk, and it searches Twitter to find anything you want. When I signed up, I got 10 free credits, and I've used them all already. I searched for things like: "Sick of protein shakes," and "Need to lose weight." What TwitHawk does is find every single post on twitter with those exact words, and then it allows you to send responses to them. So when I found a hit that appealed to me, I would say something like, "Have you heard of the Body by Vi Challenge? Lose weight and gain lean muscle by drinking delicious shakes." I used my 10 credits up, and so far, not one single person has got back to me. As such, I am not sure if it would be worth it to actually pay for this service. Unless - 10 just isn't enough... hmmmm.

Well, I hope that everyone had a Remembrance Day to remember, and enjoyed all the happenings as of late - like 11:11:11 and the full moon. This universe is crazy!
