It’s barely after 1:00pm and this is the first I’ve been at my computer since 6:00am this morning. Craziness!
But, a good crazy!
I managed to slip into bed just after midnight last night and slipped right back out when the alarm went off at 6:00am.
I made a hearty bowl of oatmeal with the addition of chopped dates (a new obsession), fresh mango, and Kashi Go Lean Crisp.
The bowl of oatmeal fueled me on the 2 hour drive to Orlando. I tried to leave on the earlier side to beat rush hour traffic, but somehow I managed to hit rush hour when driving through both downtown Tampa and Orlando. I guess ‘rush hour’ is a loose term for ‘rush morning’ traffic.
When I made it to town I nibbled on a granola bar before heading to my final destination.
Looks like Barre Workout Method classes are finally hitting the Orlando scene!
Barre54 (Orlando’s first fitness studio dedicated to the barre workout method) recently opened near downtown Winter Park, in a BEAUTIFUL location off of Park Ave. The PR team for the studio shot me an e-mail last week asking if I wanted to try the class out as a member of the media (member of the media? me? I’m flattered!) and my mind immediately jumped to iZonOrlando.com
What better way to stay fit outside the gym than a Barre Method class? Sign me up!
I’ll leave you hanging with a full review of the class until the show airs, but I will say it worked my booty. There was a heavy emphasis on glutes and arms today and boy to my glutes feel it now!
After classes I headed to my old stomping grounds – Infusion Tea! – for lunch and free wifi.
Love their half and half combos.
Half of the Concorde Wrap (turned sandwich)
And half of the Bean Salad with Avocado.
City Twitter Lists
I had a LOT of comments last night asking which Tampa groups I follow on twitter. I want to build a list of who to follow in Tampa (and Orlando!) and thought it would be fun to make lists for other cities as well.
Who are influential tweeters in your city that are great to follow? Leave them in the comments below and I’ll add them to my next post!
