Mal and I recently decided to plan “ surprise dates ” for one another. Basically, we want to jazz-up our “same-old, same-old” dinner dates by spending time together doing something new and different. With the temperature expected to reach 70* in Boston this afternoon, I knew exactly what to plan for my “surprise date” for Mal. To add to the suspense, I left a clue on Mal’s “school bag” this morning.
In the email that I plan to send him at noon, it will tell him where and when to meet me. All I have told him so far is that he needs to be on the T by 4:15/4:30pm to meet me somewhere downtown.
Mal will get his next clue/gift when he successfully meets me!
Breakfast and Workout
I shredded this morning before work, so I am taking breakfast to go with me on my commute.
Level 1 of the 30-Day Shred was such a great workout! I loved how Jillian moved from one exercise to the next without stopping for much explanation or rest. However, Level 1 wasn’t as hard as I expected it to be– even with 10 lb dumbbells (instead of 5 lbs.). I really thought it was going to kick my butt! It’s the perfect quickie workout if you are pressed for time or as part of a longer workout. After shredding, I did a 30-minute interval run on the treadmill.
Breakfast to go: oats mixed with wheat bran, ground flaxseed meal, and pecans and a banana. When I get to work, I will slice up the banana for my oats and add hot water from the water cooler.
I also grabbed an iced coffee mixed with hemp protein, soy milk, and agave nectar to drink on my commute.
Why Should I Go to BlogHer 2009?
As you may know, I really, really, really want to attend the BlogHer Conference in Chicago this coming July. Unfortunately, tickets are sold out, but I will do just about anything to get one! So, I was hoping that you guys would help me brainstorm some reasons why I should attend the conference in the hopes of getting BlogHer’s attention. Of course, I appreciate “serious” ideas, such as what makes CNC unique and why you read it, but I am also interested in the funny and ridiculous reasons! Feel free to leave any and all ideas that you may have! Please help me get to BlogHer!
