**So glad that you guys concur – giveaways ARE fun – so fun, in fact, that you should go enter my GU Energy one!  Ends tonight!!**

As I alluded to on Tuesday and some of you have already guessed, the theme for this week’s Tuesday Trainer is REST!!  Or rather “Meet Your Trainers – Part II”.  Part I can be found here.  Try not to judge me for the fact that I’ve neither a) plucked my eyebrows since then or b) taken a true rest day either.  My life seems to be going a mile a minute.

THE SHOW OPENS TONIGHT!!  Four more days and I’ll be able to breath again! (I’ll have pictures of me in costume soon – promise!)

So, for me, this rest week could not have come any sooner.  These vlogs are basically a chance for us to get to know each other more and hopefully find some common likes.  I ask you a string of questions and you answer them.  Easy enough, right?  No, not right.  Why can’t guys catch on to this idea?!?  A grunt or one-word answer doesn’t appease me.  Oh…and THE WORST is when you send them to get information and they don’t know the right questions to ask or what details are important.

Good thing he’s a cutie.


I get to make babies with him, you guys!?!!  We should have bought that hat!

Anyway, here’s what you’ll answer:


  1. What is one type of workout that you can’t live without?
  2. What time of day do you workout?
  3. Do you subscribe to any fitness magazines?
  4. If you could choose to have one super human power, what would it be and why?
  5. Give me some future Tuesday Trainer theme suggestions!


My “Meet Your Trainer” video:

Two things:  1) Nice screenshot for the video to stop on and 2) my bangs are outta control!  Travis is WAY outta my league.

Some helpful guidelines:

  • If you’ve never participated in Tuesday Trainer, you can still submit a Meet Your Trainer!! Anyone can participate!!
  • Don’t afraid to be yourself!  Show some character!
  • Wear comfy clothes.  But please, wear clothes.
  • Try not to ramble – submissions should be no more than 4-5 minutes long.
  • Remember to introduce yourself and your blog.

***DEADLINE for submitting moves is Monday night, the 7th, at 8pm EST. Again, go here to learn how to upload your video!***

I’m off to see the Wizard!! Four more days, four more days, four…

QUESTION:  I’ve been so consumed with MY life, I’ve forgotten to ask about yours.  Any awesome news or weekend plans?  Or maybe a great post you just wrote?  Leave a link in the comments!

  1. Yay, ninja fighting — your blog is so much fun. I really enjoy getting to know more about you through these vlogs. Good luck with OZ!!
    Also, any word on Boulder in April/May? I’m really excited & getting anxious to know if it’s a go.

  2. Good luck with OZ. I can’t wait to see pictures/video. I’m nervous for you- is that weird?
    Okay, you are too cute in your video and I really need to get some cozy pjs like that! :)
    PS- Andrew is the worst with knowing what details are important. Ugh.

    1. Thanks, Averie! I LOVE nursing SO very much! I struggled with it alot at first (the lack of freedom mostly), but Travis was a great cheerleader and I pulled through. 3 years later, and I can’t imagine not doing it!

  3. You have such a nice voice. I love that you did your vlog wearing your fuzzy pyjamas. And I laughed out loud at this: “I get to make babies with him”. Then I read it again to make sure that I was quoting it properly, and laughed again. And I also laughed at the ninja-fighting. Too funny.

  4. how did it take me so long to find you!? I love you already. ;) I have been relentlessly recapping my first marathon from last weekend on my bliggity blog all week.

    aaand when my legs are working right again, I’m totally getting into Tuesday Trainer!

  5. This weekend is my little brother’s birthday…he will be (gulp) 24!! I anticipate cupcake making (and consuming) with my 6-year-old niece, who is definitely the better cupcake decorator of the two of us :)

    I think it’s a rule that Travises (Travi?) have to look good in dark, old school style hats…my Travis does them well too (swoon!) :)

  6. go back and get that hat!! even if he only wears it for you, BOW CHIKA BOW WOW.

    SQUEE, can’t WAIT to hear all about the show! good luck, tonight, and break a leg if that is indeed a good luck thing. please don’t literally.

    please DO tell me someone will be videotaping?? I wanna see, I needta see! :D

    1. oh Kristina! I taped my part at dress rehearsal and then the director told me that I’m not allowed to post it to Youtube because of copyrighting laws. GRRR!! So I’ll only be allowed to post pics. BUT, there IS a snippet of my performance online, that I’ll include in either tomorrow’s post or Sat.!

  7. Looove you. And I sleep in a sports bra and underwear…can I wear that? It would further add to the “hussy image’ I have going on. :-)

    Good luck with OZ this weekend, I’m excited for you!!

  8. Yea – Meet the Trainer week! This is going to be a crazy weekend in the Blackmon house, as we’re going to have a whole slew of 6th grade boys at the house all weekend for DNow (Disciple Now: middle school & high school discipleship weekend). No, we don’t have our own kids…Yes, this is going to be a long weekend. Luckily we have 2 leaders who will be help wrangling the kids, but I still anticipate a busy weekend ahead!
