Getting ready…

A full day of work and 3 hours of networking efforts at the Buffalo Niagara Partnership‘s “HobNob and CEO Auction” left the hours in my day a bit shy.  Thank goodness I opened my new membership on Monday!

I made my Best Fitness debut last night at 930PM.  It’s a bit daunting, but I haven’t despite all my hours spent in at Body Blocks over the last almost 2 years now… I was intimidated.  Not because of the people necessarily.  The people were quite interesting and for so late in the day it was pretty damn busy.  It might have a little to do with the fact that I get spoiled at Body Blocks.

Yesterday was the first time in a long time I worked out without a Personal Trainer.  I like being told what to do.  They push me harder then I’d push myself.  Plus, by time I get to the gym I really don’t want to think about what kind of workout I need to do.  How many reps of this.  What muscle groups do I focus on?  Which exercises will target those areas best?

Am I capable?  Yes.  But I like my trainers.  To top it off, I know everyone that walks through the door.  There are very rarely more than 8 people on the training floor (including staff) at a time.  Walking into this new facility was the complete opposite.  I was a little overwhelmed.  Had no idea where anything was and walked around like a chicken with its head cut off.  But I’ll get over it.

Today on the other hand, I had plenty of time to make it back home to Body Blocks.  Considering I’m heading out to the Arnold’s after my workout tomorrow morning we decided to hit a 2-day split.  So we crushed my upper body!  Overall great workout.

Now I just have to get ready for the next few days.  On tonights agenda:

  1. Prepare my meals for the next two days and pack that cooler. I’m heading out of town but I have to stay strong, especially when I’m surrounding myself with hundreds of fitness fanatics!
  2. Finish my laundry
  3. Put together new bathroom shelving and clean my house. I know, irrelevant.  I’m running the Buffalo Shamrock Run when I get back Saturday morning and hosting a good friend’s Bachelorette Party Saturday night.  So these things need to get done.
  4. Find clothes to wear to this shindig!  Yes, as a woman I need to focus on what I wear.  I’ve never been to a fitness EXPO and I’m entirely unsure what I should wear.  To top it off, I’ve been dropping sizes so rapidly I haven’t gone shopping.  I don’t really have much that fits :/
  5. Pack.  Well this is a no brainer…

Don’t forget… tomorrow I head out to my first ever Arnold Expo.  I am super excited.  Follow my adventure at @GlorifyJournal – for my take, plus updates, tips and pics straight from the fitness pros!
