Most of you know that I am a big fan of The Jillian. This blog's name comes from something she said. The tagline, "Count your calories, work out when you can, and try to be good to yourself. All the rest is bulls**t" is another Jillian quote, from when I attended a session she gave at BlogHer '07. That's the philosophy I try to use for my own weightloss, in fact.
So when I saw that as part of her "Maximize your Life" tour Jillian was coming to my state, I had to buy a ticket. She is also coming to Detroit, which is closer, but I teach that night, so I bought tickets for Saturday, May 4. I actually bought VIP tickets, because it looks like these shows are huge. I would be disappointed if I just got to watch her on a JumboTron at a live event. It's just a few weeks away now, and I'm really looking forward to it.
This purchase, and the dishwasher, and some unexpected car repairs were the reason I was worrying about money the other night. I think, though, that my life could use some maximizing. My husband and I are going to stay in Cleveland that night since the show goes late, and I made us dinner reservations at a restaurant that looked interesting and seemed to have some lighter entrees. Our anniversary is in May so it should be a nice little evening away.
