Gettin' Around the Gaslamp

I have officially gone out drinking enough times in San Diego to make this post worth it:

My Go To: Maloney's Tavern
It is like Cheer's and there are great quotes on the walls. They also show movie clips then transition into songs that are just a little terrible, i.e. Cliffhanger clip where the chick falls into the song Free Fallin' by Tom Petty.

Also Awesome: Bareback Grill
they have board games on each table and had live music the night I went. They also have this wheel of death thing - you pay $4 and get whatever drink(s) the wheel lands on. Everything from mini pitchers of beer to shots for the opposite sex. Great burgers too!

Chicks and Bros: FleetWood
This is defs a night club. Charged a cover (Scotty paid for me). They have a hip-hop room which has a DJ spinning old skool jams and the newest chart toppers - lots of dancing. It was fun but loud and crazy. Lots of bros and drunk as a skunk chicks. Not exactly my scene but it was nice to get out of my laid back box.

So, I am trying to get back in shape. I got some sale work out clothes at target and I am going to start using them as more than loaf around the house clothes.

I purchased this DVD:

Apparently this chick is on the biggest loser and is like the toughest trainer on tv. I have never seen this show but this DVD was on sale and I was feeling motivated...

So the first 20 minute level one workout pretty much kicked my ass, but I am pretty excited to keep going on it. It is only 20 mins a day and it is quite dynamic - you are only doing things for like a minute or so at a time. The background music is pretty lame but Jillian has good commentary and always seems to say "keep going" right as I think "fuck this shit."

I'll try to keep you guys posted on my progress. Might even take this in to work and do it on my clarity breaks. Jillian's website suggested that I also do swimming and cycling... thinking of adding that in next week.
