A workout and some Queens

All our fortunes from Bff's bday dinner 

Its been a busy Mommy weekend off. After I dropped my Daughter off Friday to go to her Dad’s  I came home and killed some time before I went for my trail walk because I had a friend that was supposed to go with me. Sometimes I seriously wonder why I try to make plans with other people to workout. It never seems to work out(pun intended) and it can be very frustrating. It has nothing to do with ending up doing it alone, I like doing a workout alone it gives me time to work through all the junk in my head. The problem is in my planning and pre-gaming for a specific workout. With type 1 diabetes I have to have a pretty good idea of what I am going to be doing, for how long and when I plan on getting started. There are certain things I do to make sure I can safely workout and hopefully avoid having to treat a low.

why YES I am wearing a JoBro backpack since my Daughter lost my normal one lol

I try not to bitch to much because, well its my problem not theirs and I ask them to come. I do at the least expect them to answer their phone when they are late or let me know beforehand they wont make it…not an hour after I have waited on them. I really don’t think that is to much to ask. Needless to say while I did end up doing my workout alone Friday and my pre-gaming combined with the no-show did send me a little high I still got my workout in. Not quite the workout I had planned but oh well. Just one of those things that drive me crazy. If you cant come fine, just let me know.
Now for the fun stuff! We had some horrendous storms Saturday which meant that my  planned outdoor workout I desperately needed to make up for Friday night didn’t happen. I’m talking tornado warnings and all. I still made it to the gym though for a quickie. I had to make sure I had plenty of time to get ready to go out to dinner at P.F. Chang’s  for my BFF’s birthday and after we were going to a drag show at Warehouse 29!

Getting ready for a night out with the girls!

Now this was a new thing for me, I have never been to a gay club or seen a drag show other than on tv even though I have friends that are Queens. I have to say even as a straight gal it was so much fun! Unlike a regular club you didn’t have all the groups of attemptingtolookperfectbitchy girls, everyone was just there to have a good time. No one cared if you were fat, skinny, black, white, purple (or flaming red in my case with tha hair!), gay, bi, straight whatever…they were just happy you were there and wanted you to have as good of a time as they did. I got to see an old friend from elementary/middle school I haven't seen in almost 10 years who is also one of the performers there and we danced like fools. What more could you ask for on a girls night out. We had a blast, and I will definitely be going back again. I'm feelin it some today, can’t hang like I used to, but it was so worth it. Sorry no more pictures, I forgot my camera at home Sad smile.

I guess that’s it for your weekend in review
Peace, Love and Happy Blogging

  1. Now that's a fun weekend!

  2. I love the dress/shirt you are wearing for a night out! The hair is turning out to such a statement piece LOVE IT!

    I HATE being left waiting. Yes, even a TEXT would be nice but in general I get annoyed by texts with a "I'm on my way." or something vague like that. It's rude especially if it's consistent.

    I prefer working out by myself but I like encouraging my bf so I normally do a personal work out and then do another one with the bf. He's the only one I really would want to pair up with though.

    Have a great day!

  3. thank you! I ended up pairing a purple cardigan over it that had little ruffly things around the neck line because it was cool and got complements all night on my hair and my friend who is a Queen was inspecting my cardi so she could make one in her size ....who dosent love a night filled with complements lol

    as for workouts I have discovered I really prefer cardio alone

  4. You look so pretty! I love the red hair, btw.. what kind of upkeep that must take.. my black hair takes too much, let alone having red.. but I love drag shows! I don't see them nearly as often as I'd like to..

    Glad you had a good girls night out.. :)

  6. The red isnt so bad normally but this I had to bleach first so we shall see

    as for being ditched the reason it made me so mad is because im a type 1 and she knows this, she works at an endocrinologist office and is a nurse so she knows I have to prepare for my workouts and I ended up High which does not help the mood and had to go to the gym to finish my workout because it was getting dark on me from waiting
