Hi, I'm Tina!

Get all the tools to take your physique into your hands. Over six-months, you’ll transform your life, mindset, and body in this program that’s part-course, part-coaching, and part-community.

I’m feeling much better! Yay! I’m still not 100%, but today was the best day yet. Progress, baby. I’ll take it.

(FYI: Today’s Reebok event was awe-some. I have a ton of photos to organize and a couple of videos to upload to YouTube, so I’ll probably have my recap finished sometime tomorrow. It was such a great time””I can’t wait to tell you guys about it!)


After the Reebok event, Katelyn and I went back to Theodora‘s apartment to shower and get ready for the evening. On our walk, we popped into Starbucks. I thought once I walked in and got a whiff of coffee, I’d be dying to have one, but, surprisingly, it wasn’t that tough to resist. I guess the thought of iced coffee angering my colon turned me off. I ended up ordering a Passion iced tea and grabbing a banana for a snack. I have to admit, going cold turkey with my iced coffee addiction habit hasn’t been too bad. I figured I’d be miserable, but I’m doing much better than I thought.

I got a couple of NoGii bars at the Reebok event, so I snacked on one of those when we got back to Theodora’s apartment. It was good””kind of like a Larabar, but with more nuts.

A few hours later, Theodora came home from work and then she, Katelyn, and I met Meredith at Rare Bar & Grill for dinner. (Jocelyn showed up a little while later to enjoy a drink with us.)

Reunited at last! Theodora and I hadn’t seen each other in 3 whole months. I missed my friend!

Our lovely dates, Katelyn and Meredith!

At dinner, Theodora ordered a beer. I did not.

For my dinner, I ordered a plain burger, which was just okay. With a restaurant name like Rare, I expected a really flavorful and juicy burger, but, sadly, this one was neither of those things. I ordered it medium, but it was pretty dry and bland inside. Boo. I still ate almost the entire thing.

On a more positive note, the coleslaw was (surprisingly) really good””probably the best I’ve ever had. I usually hate coleslaw and avoid it all costs, but this one looked really fresh, so I gave it a try””it was very lightly tossed in mayo, chopped, and made with fresh basil. Mmm!

We also shared a French fry sampler among the table. I pretty much dominated the sweet potato fries.

Theodora and I are back at her apartment now. We’re both pooped and need to get up early to grab the bus to Boston in the morning, so we’re heading to bed.

Good night, friends!
