Turbo for a Cause + Rachel's Party

This weekend was definitely different from my normal weekend.  Even different that last weekend when J and I were in Chicago doing the family wedding thing.

This weekend I was in Toledo for my sister's bachelorette party.  As MOH, I naturally have a few duties, and one of them this weekend was to stay sober and make sure she didn't do anything too dumb.  I am not sure if silly stringing the hallway in the hotel that we stayed in counts as "too dumb" or throwing up blue goo counts either, but no one died or got arrested.  I stayed boringly sober (but on the plus side, stuck to my diet with zero issues!) but I made sure that folks stopped pressuring her to drink and stuff when she was clearly done, and I felt like that was my biggest job.

That last picture is a little bright, but she has panties on her head.  Not sure how she was convinced of that.  She ended up with them on for quite a while before she remembered that they were there.

So I suppose all in all, even though it was not the most exciting of nights for me, it turned out to be a success.  I think Rachel had fun, and that is the most important thing.

However, prior to that, I had an event to attend courtesy of my friend and Beachbody mentor Liza.
As I mentioned the other day, I started doing TurboFire.  In Toledo, my hometown, there is probably the largest Turbo community outside of LA, where Chalene the creator lives.  I knew it, because my friends that still live there are ALWAYS posting about going to classes, etc, but until I actually got to witness it first hand, it is a little bit tough to tell, you know? 

So Turbo for a Cause was set up to benefit Sonrise, an autism treatment program.  I guess this was the second year that they had it.  I had gotten together with Liza the night before just to hang out and chat, because, why not?  And she had asked me if I felt comfortable in the front row for the class even though I had never done a live class before.  Now, come on, I am a stage performer.  I have done many many humiliating things in front of large groups of people before.  Far more people than would see me here!  So I agreed.

 Here are a few pictures from the class.

I am in the red on the far right in both pictures.  You can kind of see me.  I kept up pretty well, I think, and I had a lot of fun at the class, which is really all I can ask for.

Do you have live Turbo where you live?  Or can you only do the DVDs?  We only have one live class here in Cincinnati.  I mean to get to it soon!


  1. I've never seen a Turbo class before! Looks pretty intense. In other randomness, are you on Twitter? I don't think I'm following you and would like to. I'm @paulettezf in case you are!
