Thoughts: I don’t know what I’m more jazzed about today, the BFL seminar being held at the Steel Mill Gym in Orlando by Coach Eric Shrieves with special guests Porter Freeman (yes, the fella in the BFL book and Body of Work!) and Lynn Oglesby (Women’s 40-49 2002 Official Body-for-Life Challenge First Runner-Up) at 7 pm tonight, or another weekend karaoke blitz with my singing partner in crime and fellow January birthday victim, Ed, shortly afterwards at the Kimonos sushi bar at the Disney Swan hotel.
Golly, my two favorite things–fitness and karaoke–all in one night.
Can we say gym-rat, karaoke-nut BLISS?
If any of you have some non-newbie, BFL/nutrition/training questions you’d like me to ask at the seminar, please post them in the comments section before 6 pm EST tonight, and I’ll bring them with me to the event. I’ll post a synopsis of the seminar tomorrow, too…or possibly give my MP3 voice recorder a try. Do you think it would be too cheesy to have Porter Freeman sign my copy of BFL? 😛
(I’m taking my digicam for photo opps, too, just in case. The closest I’ve ever come to a semi-celeb was having David Mack, creator/artist/writer of the Kabuki comic book series, sign a poster and give me a 50% discount on my “You Don’t Know Me” Control Corps t-shirt just for being a trendy Asian girl in a black pleather coat at the Orlando Megacon two years ago. Oh wait…penciller Joe Madureira of X-Men fame also signed something for me after accusing me of procuring the autograph not for myself, but for my “boyfriend.” Hrmph. Girls collect comics, too, you know! That autograph was for my sister, thank you.)
If you are in Orlando or close enough to drive here, the seminar is 100% free and will start at 7:00 PM EST. It’s open to anyone interested in BFL, so come by if you can. Here’s the address:
Steel Mill Gym

As for karaoke–I’d take song requests, but there’s no way to prove that I sang anything, right? Well, maybe I’ll take requests anyway and have someone take pics or (horrors) a film clip. My range covers Disney Princesses to Evanescence, with some Broadway stuff, Sarah Mclachlan, Tori Amos, and Dido thrown into the mix. I’m pretty good with 80’s hair band songs, too. 😉

The Awful Truth:
1. Erm…finished off the last 3/4 c. of Kashi GoLean in my apartment. Why can’t I lay off the cereal? It’s more pernicious than white rice for me now since I don’t have to cook it or anything. I’m eating the stuff DRY, for Pete’s sake. Wah!

2. Am going to a BFL seminar tonight before karaoke.
1. Cook the chicken breasts and broccoli in my fridge.
2. Make another batch of bars.
