Jackson, Chantel, and I ran the Crescent City Classic 10K this morning. Jackson slowed himself down and ran with his mom the whole way. (I think he knew I was tired at mile 4. 2 Days of craziness in Denver might have been the cause .lol) According to my app Runtastic Pro, we ran 6.4 miles in 1 hour and 7 minutes. Wonder what he would of done with a stronger partner?
NYC great night. San Antonio was just on fire last night!!!
If anyone has a good video of the Du Haste skit from Denver can you send it to the website so we can post it!
I am TIRED!!

I just got off the phone with one of my friends. ” Lil I just got you and I a present.” ( I was thinking dinner somewhere or a spa treatment. ) I was way off!! ” I got us each a 3 hour naked photoshoot with this photographer on groupon.” What? ” Liliana, nothing is more motivating to lose weight then a naked photoshoot. ” ok so really naked? Supposedly you can wear lingerie if you are really shy. On the phone she is reciting the picture packages you can ask for. ” dude, if I look good in a naked picture, I am getting a floor to ceiling portrait to hang in my living room. ” She is nuts!

The Denver staff was so fun tonight. They did a number ( whole staff , men and women) to Du Haste by rammstein that was awesome. Bartenders, barbacks, and BMF’s in Lader hosen! Hysterical. Who knew that the female Lader hosen Oktoberfest outfit was so sexy? I am buying one pronto for intimate nights.
Thanks Sean, the bouncer , for wearing the tear away pants and dancing for me to Sexy and you know it! I really had a great time tonight.
It’s midnight and I just got off the phone with Tommy. Our bet now is the gross sales of our various 3 bars for anniversaries. My bars are NY, Denver, and Memphis. His bars are Austin, Milwaukee , and OKC. It’s like fantasy football. In about 2 hours I will have 2 teams that played while he has 2 teams left.
Lets make it a real bet. What are the stakes ? Lets go!

Great night OKC. Like clockwork with all the bars , when the regional shows up , the numbers go up ! We had tons of fun last night in Denver. Perhaps a little too much fun. Denver girls always beautiful. Love to see Jazmine the manager on duty so very pregnant. Pinky lost a lot of weight. Claims he changed nothing with regards to his diet. The only change was incorporating P90X into his daily routine. Good for him! Big 8 year anniversary tonight! Go Denver

Bars sucked last night. OKC painful night. Heading to Denver tomorrow. I love going to dinner the night before with the team. I booked us at Sullivan’s tomorrow night. Steak and wine, perfect!
I am pretty sure that I will not be able to raise my arms over my head by tomorrow after two days of crossfit. Jackson and I are now watching Surviving the Cut for motivation. It motivates me in the same way that The Biggest Loser motivates me. ” look at those poor people, hey Jackson get me more rice pasta throw on extra cheese.”So far we have watched Marine Recon and Night Stalkers. From viewing the show it appears that based on pure physicality the marines had a harder time but the night stalkers are asked to use more mental focus while in harsh environments. Patato, Potato. Lol ”
Tahnee dropped out because of scheduling. She was already up to 4 miles today after only a few days.
Holla Denver! Here we come
Ps. My son came home . ” mom your hair looks very pretty.” Alien probe? Ashton am I being punked?

Met Daniel for lunch at Ruth Chris in Nola. We ate steak, salad, 2 wines, and I had 4 bites of a chocolate dessert ( we left most of it)
I call bullshit! I downloaded an app called My Fitness. It documents everything you have eaten and calculates how much you have exercised as well. Today I ran and did crossfit. I ate probably more then usual but I was starving. My body is aching and hungry. This app in a nice way just sent me an alert ” hey fat shit. if you keep on eating like this you will gain blah blah blah weight by next week.” Fuck, now I have to run more today. You are kidding me.” Can’t wait for this Tough Mudder to be over. I am fucking tired. At crossfit we practiced powerlifting, pull-ups , and rope climbing. I did 4 sets of 7 power lifts, 7 pull-ups, and 7 wall balls in 8 minutes. The f… pull-ups . I can’t do them properly. I am tired and cranky. Now I will get dressed and run more. If I get fat and stocky for this event I will kill Kevin. That’s all I have to say.
The bars rocked this weekend. Shout out to Nashville. Great numbers. Heading to Denver on Wednesday. To Denver Bouncers ” just have fun with it!!”

Jackson and I did it. We wore our running outfits including sneakers. We jumped in the freezing pool totally outfitted then we ran a mile. The water was cold and the first 1/2 mile of running was a bit odd. Our sneakers were squishy and our clothes were wet. But the Dri fit clothes that we wore really dried quickly. My biggest complaint was the mosquitos. My face got bitten and for hours afterward I felt that feeling of allergies. (I have a feeling the pool wasn’t in swimming condition and perhaps there was too much pollen floating on the water.) Lee claims there will be no mosquitos in Nevada but to be weary of the scorpions and snakes. Shit! now that is another thing I am worried about. Tahnee ran 2 miles today at 23 minutes. First day out that’s pretty good

5 miles in 54 minutes. Not bad for me. I am slow but I am consistent. I just went on line and found a couple of websites that encourage competitors to practice while in your expected attire for the Tough Mudder. First, Put the clothes on. Second, Jump in a lake or a pool, fully clothed included sneakers. Third, run two miles and see how heavy or hard it is running while you are wet..Ok I will try it tomorrow. ( if its not too cold, cause I am a wussy)
So yesterday I went to my first therapy session. My goal was to leave feeling a sense of peace and or relief. I went and I told her my routines and the areas I thought needed help. I said jokingly, ” I am fucked up”. Never in a million years did I expect the response, ” Yes you are fucked up.” Ok now that we all know this, If I go straight into blaming my parents am I cured sooner? lol

I received a call from a mom at Jackson’s new school. ” I know your son and my daughter are partners for their history project and your son was scheduled to come over but we are busy. In fact I don’t see the need for your son to come over when they can do the project after school.” I think my son just got his first taste of discrimination. This preppy uptown bitch doesn’t like his long hair? Or is it me? Kid with long hair has a mom with tattoos in the bar business, hence she doesn’t want her daughter associating with him. I spoke to Jackson about it since it might affect the project and his grade. ” mom don’t worry. I already get teased by some people for the long hair. If her mother is really like that it just means that …(girl partner) is a really good person since she is one of my best friends at school.” My son proves to me almost daily how much kinder and more even keeled he is then me.
Ok headed to work. It’s cold today in DC.

I have forgotten how beautiful DC is. I had a conference call a little while ago so I haven’t ventured out of my hotel. I decided to eat at the hotel restaurant. Who knew that it was the Mecca of the who’s who in DC. The bar stools are so tall I had to jump up to actually sit down. Lol ( have to laugh at yourself). I am across the st from the Crime and Punishment museum! After I do my work tomorrow I will go straight there followed by the Spy Museum. Perhaps I will run the monument route in the AM.
Christina’s quote after skydiving: ” skydiving is like getting a blowjob from an ugly girl . It’s great as long as you don’t look down.”
Always a lady. Lol

Consistency. At least US Airways is consistently the worst airlines I have ever flown. Every flight I have ever taken with them has been canceled or delayed. Today is no different, the flight is delayed.
I wish the New Orleans airport had one of those spa stations. I need a pedicure pronto.
After what I refer to as “anniversary-Karaoke night ” I have been on the wagon. Today I could go for a glass of wine, a steak, and some gambling. Perhaps after check in at the hotel I can get two of the three.

One of those days that I am rooting for a particular bar. Go Milwaukee! I just looked at the numbers and Milwaukee is leading with San Antonio and NY closing the gap. Come on Ernie and staff!
I received an email from our old Memphis GM Judith about Ernie. She is so sweet and kind so let me rephrase what she said so people understand the true meaning. ” Lil, Ernie has become such a fat ass. You know how you make the guys go on diets. Please do something before he keels over like one of those guys they have to use a crane to move.”
Ok Judith. Your wish is my command. I am on it! By the time his new baby is born we will see a brand new Ernie!

Holy Moley! Bam every bar did incredible. ( haven’t received OKC yet). Austin beating the pack by only a few hundred dollars with San Antonio second. Nashville and Memphis so close. Denver , NY , and Key West super close in sales. Kudos to NY the two day shift girls rang in the night time numbers that most bars put up using 5-6 girls. Pretty impressive! Milwaukee edging out New Orleans . Haven’t heard the Vegas numbers. Hopefully they had a huge night.
I can actually walk today. Healing from crossfit . Will go running. Happy St Patty’s day.

Heading to DC this week to check some things out. I always liked DC.
Bars starting to roll. Love to see the numbers go up after a slow January.
At 5 am my electricity went out. Of course my first thoughts were ” did I pay the bill?” ” isn’t it automatic bill pay?”. I waited till 6 am to go to the local coffee shop since I knew my coffee machine would not function without electricity. Low and behold the coffee shop did not have electricity as well. My first thought was ” fuck I need coffee.” My second thought was ” god dam Entergy, it’s like the Super Bowl all over again.”

First track meet of the season and Jackson has already banned his dad from coming. Lol. In NY, Jackson’s dad would just be one of the many loud dads cheering on their children. But in New Orleans his voice is heard by everyone. He can’t help himself . It doesn’t matter if its soccer, wrestling, cross country and now track. He can’t control himself even when he knows that Jackson gets embarrassed. Lol Thank god I am allowed. Yesterday his dad called to tell me that he had been banned from the game . Beside this not unexpected detail, he also told me that his high school baseball coach had died and in respect for his death he had decided to drop the grudge he held for 30 years for being relieved of his position for a few innings during one game. Crazy is as crazy does.
Austin rocking! All the bars did well except New Orleans. That is disturbing since the French quarter has been packed for St Patrick’s day weekend. Tonight should be great for all the bars.

Austin is on fire! Awesome week. Key West right behind them! I love waking up and seeing all the bars doing well. Sunday is St Patrick’s day! I am routing for Milwaukee to lead the pack that day.
I am very sore from my first crossfit class yesterday. I have another one today. You can’t stop me! I asked Kevin if he was training for the Tough Mudder. His response ” I do the Tough Mudder on breaks from my real workout.” He’s the only nut case that I know that actually decided to get fat , not train and run a marathon. ( I swear, I am not joking). His logic was that he had done marathons before and had always trained. He wondered if he could gain weight , not train and do one. He ran the marathon in the Redwood Forest having gained 25 lbs and not exercising in months. If I am correct, he ran 18 miles and walked the rest. Pretty impressive . He is in good shape right now , so according to him , it will be easy. And Mac sent me this workout that was simply unaccomplishable. 1000 push-ups, 1000 pull ups blah blah blah. I did 100 push-ups taking breaks every 25. And I did a 1/2 a pull up. I am working on that.
Can’t find my glasses so who knows what kind of typos this blog has.

Denver staff: All staff, male and female are allowed to bring their significant others to the anniversary party. ( Anniversary parties are the one time of the year that this is allowed.) I am so excited for our Oktoberfest in March! Fun fun fun)
After Tommy and Daniel realized that I throw the best anniversary parties we made a wager. I already proved my superiority in NY. Now I am helping Pinky in Denver then Mac in Memphis.
It’s on!
Tomorrow my first crossfit lesson! Tonight kickboxing. I will not be the weak link on our Coyote Ugly Tough Mudder team!

Kevin and Mac have signed us up for the Tough Mudder outside of Vegas. This is nuts. I just emailed the owner of crossfitnola to try and get trained. I went on the website and I need to up my game. No fooling around. I am in.
Key West starting to ramp up with spring break. Austin Has South by Southwest! Bam Austin is rocking!

Nothing more satisfying then hearing your son say ” this was the best trip ever.” Ah I have done my job.
The body is a machine and as a machine it finally breaks down. Last night I couldn’t fall asleep until 4 am. I woke up at 1:30 am. In my world sleeping like that is unheard of. Hopefully I will be on point tomorrow for the New Orleans anniversary party.
All that rice in Japan and I am coming back a few pounds heavier. If my calendar is reading correctly I have a week with no traveling coming up. I keep searching my mind thinking ” you have got to be somewhere?” What will I do with myself?
Lee and his wife Dre created the funniest entry for The Walking Dead challenge. When he officially submits it I will post . I really want them to win too funny.
Jeff and Cassie( am Memphis) are in Mexico City at our booth at another tradeshow. They have been getting slammed with people. Even infringers are introducing themselves to jeff. Lol

The food has been excellent. The people so warm and kind. In our hotel room the toilet seats were warm. I even had Starbucks close by. But today I was horrified when I entered the bathroom at Shiadome station. The toilet was directly on the floor. I had heard of this but today was my first encounter with the low toilet. Do you know how low you have to squat not to splatter pee? Answer: pretty darn low.

Headed home. We are at the airport. Currently it is 10:42 pm Thursday night in Japan.

On the 2nd leg of our trip. Our 3rd leg being the longest from Los Angeles to Tokyo. Memphis with a stellar night ! Hot damn. Key West coming in 3rd. Hoping Key West starts rolling with spring break starting.
Just received an email from Jackson’s dad. No , ” hope Jackson has a good time.” No ” be careful with Jackson.” Instead His email to me read as follows ” Make sure Jackson does two sets of push ups every day .”
Lol poor kid

After getting my son prepared for his field trip yesterday I made the mistake of asking my crazy friend to meet me for a wine in celebration of the Vegas lease. What a mistake . 3 bottles of wine followed by some green shit in shot glasses. Always seems like a good idea when you are drinking. And of course the ” it’s only wine” excuse doesn’t hold true when you are on your 2nd and 3rd bottle.
Going to force myself to workout. I must pay the piper!
