Come to Jesus Friday

MetamorFit will be starting a new series. Every Friday I will have a "come to Jesus" talk. A Come to Jesus discussion is an emotional experience that is life changing resulting in a change. I would appreciate your feedback and welcome ideas for future "come to Jesus" discussions.

 

Change your routine

When it comes to my workout routine I pretty much stick to a specific schedule. Sure, life throws me curve balls sometimes and I adjust accordingly, but for the most part I know what I'm going to do on any given day. Yesterday I had a little curve ball when I decided to attend the GoGoSqueez Tampa Launch party (I'd been planning to attend for at least a week.) Normally on Wednesday morning I do a 2 mile run and then do an hour of Body Pump. But I'm learning to be flexible with my workout schedule and KNOW that as long as I get it in, it's all good baby!! I didn't get my run in, but I did do an hour of Body Pump. I dropped the kids off at school and headed down to the PARTY!

GoGoSqueez Party in Aisle 20! The new line of GoGoSqueez, Fresh Fruit is ONLY sold at Target!!

 

It was nice to break up the routine and meet some new friends that I'd been chatting with online for a few weeks, but they felt like old friends Wink We are all members of the Tampa Bay Bloggers. You can't really see my shirt, but it has a gingerbread man with a broken leg and it say's "oh snap." I thought it was pretty clever.

GoGoSqueez was also nice enough to give me a bag to give of yummy goodness to give away to one of my readers!!

The bag contains one 4-pack of GoGoSqueeZ apple-strawberry applesauce on the go, one 4-pack of GoGoSqueeZ Fast Fruit, two coupons, and some funny fruit tattoos. If you would like to win this bag, please leave a comment below and let me know that you like GoGoSqueez. I'd also like it if you had a Twitter account so you could post a review on Twitter, but that's not a requirement! Ronin will pick the winner next week on Friday!

 

Marisa (@TampaMama) is the local GoGoSqueez rep and she said it's great for the kids lunch boxes especially if you FREEZE it and then you can use it as an ice-pack, and by lunch time it's like a slushy. I did that with the kids lunches today, so we'll see what they have to say when I pick them up this afternoon!

Continuing with the change your routine theme of this post, I got a BAD leg cramp in my left calf last night around 4am, it started around my ankle and went all the way up. I jumped out of bed, stretched it out, and went back to sleep. This morning when I started to think about what was on my schedule I started to hem and haw....CXWORX and Body Attack. No issue with CX, love it, do it nearly every day. But Body Attack. I don't love it. The jumping really bothers my calf muscles. Then I remembered my calf attack in the middle of the night and started to question my routine. Should I just push through it and do Body Attack regardless, or maybe I should switch it up and do another cardio exercise. I drove to the gym still unsure what I was going to do. And then I saw my friend and asked her what she was going to do after CX. And she said "run on the treadmill." Bam, there was my answer. I was going to run.

She got on her treadmill about 5 minutes before me, so I had some catching up to do. Wink

Overall my workout consisted of a 30 minute ab shredding courtesy of CXWORX and a 5k on the treadmill. I am so glad that I decided to change up my routine!! My calf muscles don't hurt, I got in some sprint work, and I feel great! I might even change my routine tomorrow. Wink

 

Girl's Night Out...at a Tupperware Party??

That's right! Tuesday night was a girl's night out and we went to a Tupperware Party. Say what? A Tupperware Party? Yes, a Tupperware Party. But this was no ordinary Tupperware Party because our party was hosted by none other than Miss Dixie Longate from Mobile, Alabama.

Miss Dixie is a fast talking, Jesus lovin', booze drinking woman from the South. And she LOVES Tupperware crap and her many uses for it. Item#1398 the Shape-O Toy doubles as both a child's toy and a fun sobriety test!

Item #464 The Chip 'N Dip bowl is great for "retards" who don't know which dip is supposed to go with which chip because the smaller dip bowls can hook INSIDE the larger chip bowl!!

All guests of Miss Dixie's Tupperware Party received a catalog, an order sheet, and they were selling products right there on the spot! They were only taking cash, so I wasn't able to buy anything since I only carry plastic money already spent my allowance this week. Big bummer because Miss Dixie recommended the key chain batter bowl because "it can hold 2 goldfish and a bud of marijuana." Surprised

 

 Post-show Miss Dixie was mingling with her guests. My sister and Miss Dixie really hit it off Wink Listening to them ham it up, it was evident that they were having “more fun than a gaggle of lesbians at a Home Depot sidewalk sale." Miss Dixie mentioned to Lori that she tried to get a Tupperware party at the Sarasota Players Theater, but they thought her Tupperware party wasn't appropriate for Sarasota. Say what?? Sealed True, it is for more mature audiences, but Sarasota is full of old people there is NO MORE MATURE of a population than the one that reside in Sarasota County. Sarasota really missed out on hosting a FAB Tupperware party!

Dixie’s Tupperware Party premiered in Tampa on December 4 and runs through December 9 in the Jaeb Theater at The David A. Straz, Jr. Center for the Performing Arts.  Tickets may be purchased by visiting strazcenter.org.

Grab your sister, your mom, your friends and head over to the Straz before Miss Dixie's Tupperware Party and all her great crap is gone!
