A Tribute!

I adore this song!  He will be missed.

Un Poquito Mas.

 Look and see how much I've grown!!  I'm actually wearing purple!!  

This outfit was pretty much spur of the moment and I was very surprised how well it came out with a color I do not normally touch as far as clothing goes.

I love the color.  It is my favorite so because I am trying to be ...what I would call daring, here is my attempt.  There may be a lot more coming!

He Can't Do What??

On my most recent trip to the gym Tuesday of this week...(maybe I'm slacking just a lil) with Eric we got in our usually pretty intense workout, but then got a little extra when it was all over.

You see, Eric is a brand new certified personal trainer.  I've been working out for a long time, but I enjoy going with him because despite the fact that I know many of the exercises he's showing me, he helps me stay in good form and pushes me to work harder.  Sometimes it's just better working out with guys excited about P90X2??!!

So, the workout's over and we're on our way out.  Before we make it to the door Eric stops to get all his equipment situated when out walks the owner of that local Retro Fitness.  I'm all excited because I'm thinking he's offering Eric a job.  He's good..what can I say.  WRONG!

He's telling Eric he can't train people at the gym because it takes away from the trainers they've hired!  WHAT??  I'm baffled.  First of all, anyone who was watching could see he wasn't training me being we were BOTH working out.  And yes ..he has trained his client there before, but THEY BOTH HAVE MEMBERSHIPS TO THE GYM!!!  I don't see what the problem is. If they're paying to come to the gym to workout anyway how can you tell them they can't do it there??

We were both pretty pissed off about that, and poor E (Eric) had to contact his client to cancel their contract because they had no where to train (they both offered alternatives so hopefully she's still his client).
My membership for Retro expires in about 6 months and I was up in there air about renewing it, however the owner of that facility may have done it for me.  Am I being too harsh on Retro Fitness??  How is it Eric's fault that the trainers there aren't confident enough in their training ability that they cause another who is just working out with his friend to now have to be cautious about how he works out there?  Is it because I'm a girl who's pretty fit, and perhaps their trainers clients think they can get better results with Eric??  It all comes down to one question really....                                           .                                                                              .                                                       What would Ava Cowan Do?

Not Exactly Rainbow Bright

My quest to be more "colorful" obviously hasn't prompted me to kick down the door on my love of blues and blacks, but this here is an accomplishment for me. Especially being it's now Fall.
I usually keep my color experimentation's for spring and summer.  Well..everyone's gotta evolve right.

Red, White and Blue-Black

I've always been afraid to experiment with color.  Black, blue and brown were my go-to's for ALL seasons.  .....sad I know. Now that I'll be turning 30 soon, I seem to be getting a little more daring.  Thank the Gods for Polyvore!  It's allowing me to experiment safely and see what I MAY actually be willing to try.  .....I feel great things are coming!!!
