Zack posted in my journal \:D/ well, thank you zack. i certainly hope so.

i spent the whole day running around like crazy trying to get eveything packed and my house all set up for vv08! WOO HOO! my dad has been living at me (which is really fun :augenroller: ) and will be watching my puppy joey and my ferret porkchop

and therefore i iwll be leaving my ex my keys to come ACTUALLY take care of them, as dad probably will not do a very good job.


i am sooooooooooooooooo nervous to drive to nyc tomorrow, but am also giddy with excitement both to meet giacomo, who i think is out buying food for me to eat. I'm gonna feel so bad eating in front of him. like when bart eats ice cream outside the gym on the simpsons? yeah that'll be me. :D i don't think he'll mind :wink: I'm also really excited to meet everyone the following day in my dream city of PORTLAND!!!! people here keep joking that i won't come back. i haven't had a vacation in years, so this is much much needed and hey- maybe i won't. whatever.

wish me luck on the drive!

Dani!!! Can;t wait to meet you and prep up a little italian feast for you. Well, ok, not a feast but a nice entree of spiralized zucchini spaghetti and pine nut pesto sauce. Also a whole bunch of cool blends. I'm thinking the aloha sunset. I may have to get a pineapple, not sure but i have everything else. I should just get one then i could make a pina colada and an avocolada as well.

So exhausted, need sleep. Busy day tomorrow getting some stuff taken care of. You doggy and ferret are so cute trogether. Porkchop, what a name!

I told you girl, do not feel bad eating in front of me. THOUSANDS have on catering gigs and I served them all this last 1 1/2 months. Besides, I offered to serve you; you can't say no to an italian who offers you food, you know that!

Get here safe and lemme kknow what's up. Looking forward to training with you as well.....

I'm in brooklyn! woo hoo! soon to be portland. :D it wasn't too bad of a drive and i made it here in about 3.5 hours. GIacomo is awesome! such a nice guy all around and so hospitable. i'm really glad i came out here early. we trained at his gym last night and it was a lot of fun. i was a little disoriented at first, but i got into it. did back, chest and bis and it was alittle different rep scheme than usual on some excerises because the db weights were different so i was just guessing. i still got a great workout in. the cardio machine was this crazy thing. part elliptical, part stairmaster????? whatever, it was very different and made my hour of usual boredom kinda fun.

plus i got to watch giacomo from the second floor. he's pretty intense. vegans training with vegans. i love it

Can't wait to meet you, and Giacomo in Portland. Looks like he served you a nice meal! Working out in different gyms can be a bit strange, usually because the weights are different. Anyway see you all on Friday when I arrive!

It seems like the durian god's have flexed their mind control over Dani as she approves and was under the spell of the magical durian blend. In plain english, Dani loves Durian!!!!!! And Durian loves Dani ;)

edit: this is lean and green's computer, but this dani and i neglected to see who i was logged in as, until after i posted this, and now it's just hilarious, so i'm leaving it. i wonder if he notices it. :zunge: :zunge: :zunge: :zunge: :zunge:

HAVE I MENTIONED THAT PORTLAND IS AWESOME AND I WILL BE MOVING HERE SOMDAY????

robert woke giacomo and i up last night at about eleven (internal clocks still not back on point yet) to go to the gym. groggy and crusty eyes we went, and all three of us were planning on doing legs, but we almost couldn't get in.....luckily the two charmed the desk guy into letting us slip under the radar. My workout was good, a little strange as new gyms kind of discombobulate me. but i did everything and felt tough because this hack squat machine is so much lighter than the one at home that i got to load fifty pounds on it. yeah i felt badass.....until giacomo got on it and loaded plate after plate after plate on and repped away. and robert, not to be outdone by giacomo, proceeded to do leg presses up to 910 lbs......910 lbs!!!!! asking me to help spot him ( i don't know how much help he thought i would be if 910 lbs were to start falling.....HAHAHA! but Jack was on the other side so i guess he'd be all set)

doing reverse lunges me left knee started to feel really stressed, so i only did two sets. hopefully that goes away quickly. i crammed in 20 minutes of intense hiit training because i knew i wouldn't be able to squeeze in 60 minutes low intensity before the guys were done. it was fun though. robert is a trip to watch train! YEAH BUDDY! AIN'T NOTHIN' BUT A PEANUT!

today i got in some good fairly low intensity cardio when giacomo, jessi, james, jimmy, and i went climbing up to mt. multmomah--the second largest waterfall in the u.s.
awesome!

diets been a off track. not horrible by any means, but too high in carbs (almost entirely fruit though so i'm not too worried) but hopefully the extra working out will help with that. I'm not gonna stress over a few pounds gained on this vacation. i just want to not be stressed out for a minute. and i'm not. i'm really freaking happy right now. I have met some absolutely awesome people since monday. i'm ecstatic.


oh and on a funny note, we plowed through almost $80 worth of produce since yesterday....

OMG, that is hilarious that you did that post logged in as Giacomo! Love it! Too funny.

(Pig Latin code below)

I am experimentingray ithway a ersionvay of a awray ietday... shhhhhhh don't tell anyone!!! You will be one of the first to know if I end up sticking with it. I got a book that I'm so WAY into! Or course it is very high in protein and I'm putting my own spin on it, but so far two full days of about 95% awray....

LOL. Looks like your having a great time... Yeah, you gotta be careful with reverse lunges and make sure you come straight down on that back foot or you can get injured.

I would be impressed if you could work out at 11 pm in your own time zone!

And great bikini shots, by the way! (I haven't visited your journal in a few weeks).

can we say off traaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack? i'm not even worried about it right now to be honest though. i beat myself up constantly, and i think its ok to take a small hiatus. if i gain a few pounds its not the end of the world and i'll have it gone again within a month without a doubt.

oh! and melissa! that is really cool. i have eaten more raw food in the last week than i ever have and i feel great! actually today i had my first heavily cooked meal (BBQ tempeh sandwich) and while it tasted delicious, i felt like garbage afterwards. i just wanted salad. i think this vacation will pay off in the long run in many ways. although i may not be 100% on track for fat loss, i am learning a lot about nutrition and dicipline in general. ket me know how it works out for you. i am highly interested.
