Day 22

This was the conversation I had with the stop sign this morning.

Stop Sign: Can I help you?
Me: Yes, I need your name.
Stop Sign: My name is Stop Sign, why do you ask?
Me: Because apparently I am kicking ass and taking names. Last week I kicked your ass, so this week I need your name.
Stop Sign then pouted and walked away

I beat my time by 7 more minutes today!!!! My time was 1 hr and 09 min. I ain't 'fraid of no stop sign. Then I walked all the way back to campus from there again.

So today was my last Monday here. I'm kinda sad about that, but also excited. It was another hard day. Blisters, squats, chili and cornbread, oh my!!

I forgot to tell you yesterday that Ephraim Salaam from the Houston Texans football team is here. He and his wife are both very nice. I guess he just got traded from the Lions... that was the best thing to ever happen to him.

We also found out today that the Access Hollywood segment that was filmed today is being saved for "sweeps", so it will air on February 9th.

Since we usually have most of our classes only once a week (kickboxing is Friday, treading is Wednesday, etc.) I am really trying to make the most out of them and tear them up knowing it is most likely my last time in that class. I think you'll see proof of that in my daily stats below : )

  5. Great Job Sara!
    I've so enjoyed your blog! Thank you for sharing your experiences. I'm so impressed at how much you've cut of your time to the Stop sign hike! Amazing! How often do you do the hike to the stop sign each week? How many times do you walk back to FR? What are some of your favorite hikes and least favorite ones? I'll be there in 4 weeks ~ so I'm very excited. Good luck in this final week ~ You're an inspiration!

  6. LOVE the stop sign conversation. hilarious! oh, and I've seen purple potatoes, but they kinda scared me. were they good? can't wait to see you soon! I bet you look GREAT! Keep up the hard work and enjoy every last minute this week!
