While we are waiting for Eric to get images and video from the show for me to post, I thought I would tell you all a bit about my current pre-occupation........ aside from Cosmo that is.
At the show, I agreed to go to Japan in November to teach some classes. After I agreed, the reality of what I had just done began to settle in. I hate flying, so there's that. I hate being away from my kids and home, so there's that too. But what worries me most might seem silly to the rest of you. It's the size of the Japanese people.
People who travel might have noticed that size and weight are actually relative. Go to New York from Salt Lake and somehow you will gain twenty pounds during the flight. In fact, just moving from Centerville to Providence has been tough on the old body image. When I moved in, the average size changed from 4 to 6. I have a neighbor that is actually a fitness model for QVC! You know how when you look at magazines you tell yourself that those women aren't real? Well, I hate to break it to you, but they are and they all live in my neighborhood.
When I was scheduled to teach in South Africa last year, I was worried that I would "feel fat" the whole time. At one point before the trip they called to ask my tee shirt size. I suggested a large and when they said they thought for sure a small or medium would be better I knew South Africa was a place I could be happy in.
But, Japan is another story. They are so petite and I am so..... ummmmmmm...... not petite. So, I am starting the Julie will not be Giant in Japan scrapbook and you can join me. I will be posting workout routines, favorite recipes and photos of my changing physique (don't worry, we'll post other stuff too).
We have three months ladies! We can be fit and trim in time to gain it all back over the holidays....... just kidding, I meant in time to show off to all the family and friends we'll see over the holidays!
