After the sake and the lowering of the social guard

Black Women Do Workout icon— It’s hump day, though I’ve been humping double-duty,  religiously and daily, for the last few weeks with no time (or desire) to throw-in-the-towel. Honestly, the party is just getting started.

I am pleased to announce that the EAT YOUR ART OUT – Chandler fundraising event was a success. Breakfast at Chandler BBQ and lunch and dinner at The Living Room was fantastic. There were more than a dozen restaurants in the metroplex sponsoring the event and donating a percentage of the house total to the Chandler Center for The Arts.

Before the day was done, I found myself schmoozing at The Sushi Room thanking patrons for their support of the event and mingling with some pretty cool people. Sake really lowers the social guard and while I partook of none, (because I was working), I did enjoy the patrons reactions to me as I methodically approached tables to thanking each of them for supporting the arts in Chandler.  Sure, I ran into a few who were less than enthused to see my table-approaching smile, so I suggested the sake.

The event was a success and we all had a blast!
It was fundraising chique  – the dining: first class.

And today is Wednesday – my core plan is to take it easy.
My last 2 weeks have been a journey steep, though I’ve been acting ‘breezy.’

Today is like a mini-vacation for tomorrow there will be no play
when I start my interval training class – ergo my own hump day.

Fitness Works

Thank God it’s only 30 minutes, but then again, I’m just getting started.
I understand the rigorous physical plan is not for the faint hearted.

Pray for me that I don’t faint – for that would be a fitness sorrow,
I’m Qui
A bit of an “anxious she” because my HUMP DAY starts tomorrow.

I think it’s going to be fun!
