Good Morning Loves...and 5 days away until the BIG GUY comes to town! Are you reeaaaddddyyy? My current status --> sitting in my fabulous King Bed, watching the sunrise, coffee in hand, and reveling in what an amazing Birthday I had yesterday!
Side Note: I am a little nervous how my workout is going to roll this morning; rumor has it, the inclines on the treadmill are going to be insanity and I, definitely, did not drink enough water yesterday to support what is about to go down.
It is all good though; I would not have changed yesterday for a minute! Honestly, I did not know what was going to happen. While I had an idea, and as I made mention to in yesterday's post, there always seems to be these "expectations" that come with milestones - i.e. Birthday's, Anniversary's, Holiday's, etc. I don't know why, they just do!
And I did not want to feel "that way" this year BUT I did want it to be a birthday that was #fit4janine. So, I just let the day happen...and I could not have been happier with how it all turned out!
A single gal in the city of Santa Monica & Beverly Hills; I mean, how much "bouginess" could I get into? In case you wanted to know, here is a little run through of how I spent the 1st day of "33." Oh, and my pictures, they are courtesy of my Instastories from the day...are you following me on Instagram yet? If not, COME ON!
Coffee on FLEEK!
Sunrise, Writing, and Coffee on REPEAT!
Self Promotion...Yeah Baby!
WERK! Are you in the "Orange Zone?"
Protein & Healthy Fats! FIG Santa Monica
3rd Street Promenade & MEAT on Ocean!
I had an AMAZING 90 minute full body treatment at the Exhale Spa, located right at the Fairmont Miramar, and coupled that with watching the sunset when I arrived back to my room!
Once I, finally, got myself looking somewhat presentable - sans hair (see below) - I thought a little "pre-gaming" of another cocktail and a cheese board is what was needed, especially since my dinner reservation was not until 9:00 pm! I know, totally, late for me...but I felt like I was in the real world, LOL!
Again, another fabulous snack/meal from FIG! Plus, I needed to get inspiration for my Christmas Day Cheese & Charcuterie Board!
Now, it was off to get the last piece of the "glam" underway - my hair blown out at my FAVORITE blow dry bar - the, actual, Dry Bar!
AND, to round out my day, I "Lyfted" to the place where I just feel like an absolute princess, celebrity, super bougie (ha) - The Beverly Hills Hotel. While I was early, I pulled up a bar stool at Bar Nineteen 12, then made my way to the infamous "Polo Lounge!"
Dinner consisted of a sampling of Cabernet's, a hummus starter, and a beautiful piece of salmon with veggies and fancy potatoes...because that is how I roll! Unfortunately, my food pics were NOT post worthy so let your imagination take over on that one!
Here is to 33...living a life that is #fit4janine...and looking forward to what happens over this next year!
