Text Blogging... not a good idea

Okay, so I attempted to text a blog. 45 minutes and one cramped finger later, no post!

So, what's the dill bill? Where has the 330 Pound Woman been, you ask? Well, I have been crazy busy. As most of you know, I am currently working a contract job and on Thursday, I flew to Denver for business. I will be here working most of month... basically thru September 4th.

I arrived late on Thursday (sat in the Airport most of the day, my flight was only and hour and fourty-five minutes). Was up a little late that evening, checking into the hotel, unpacking, a late night meeting, dinner, a quick trip to the office and then finally sleep. Friday, we were going to be in the office by 6am so I actually got up at 3:50am to workout. Yes, I thought I was crazy as well... good news is, I got in a great workout: 4.5 miles on the Elliptical which was 510 calories burned and gone forever!!! Woo-Hoo!

Yesterday, I had the awesome opportunity to meet one of my most favorite SPARKERS, KELLIGIRL1977 and her dear friend Cynthia. We went to the Denver Botanic Gardens (beautiful) and then to the 16th Street Shopping Center (amazing). We walked for about 5 hours. I'm not sure the distance or how many calories that were burned but 5 hours, it has to be off the charts! We decided to grab a bite to eat and headed for a Sushi bar. It was a first for me and well, it wasn't exactly my thing. I was excited to try it but I don't think I will do it again. The girls loved it though.. let me see if I can remember what we had. There was California Rolls, Lava Rolls, Poki Rolls, Spider Rolls and I can not remember the other. There was eel, crab, tuna and salmon, one was cooked and the others were marinated. If you enjoy Sushi, this would have been a hit with you. There was just something about the texture that I couldn't get past. But hey, to each is own.

Denver is gorgeous guys. It is full of life, entertainment and the sunrise is breathtaking. I actually meet four students at work on Friday that said they moved to Denver after visiting on vacation, I can understand why.

I have tons of pictures to share, I'm not on my computer, I am in the business center in my hotel so I will have to wait until I am at home to post. I will be home next weekend so take a peak back then and enjoy the ride :)

Today, my boss and I are going to find some mountains, I am so excited and ready to hike in Colorado! Rocky Mountains, here I come!


  1. I loooove Denver and the rest of Colorado, especially the beautiful mountains! I saw that you're working, but what a fabulous place to be for work! Enjoy it. :)

  2. I lived in Denver for just over a year and a half when I was too young to appreciate it (8 to to 10 years old). Now the outdoors and weather would be so appealing to me since I decided to partake in outdoor activities!

    Sounds like you are happy - can read it in the tone of your post! Awesomeness!

  3. My hubs went to Denver about 4 yrs ago and I've seen the pics. Its beautiful :) Can't wait to see your pics :)

  4. Way to go on the exercise!! That is dedication!!! Denver is awesome. We will be there on the 5th of September for our Sons wedding. He's getting married in the Bronco's football stadium. Can't wait!! Have fun!!

  5. Sounds like an awesome weekend! I love Denver. My sis lives in northern NM and we love going into Colorado. Too gorgeous!

    Also my foray into text blogging was a no-go. It broke it up into 5 lil posts, each 180 characters or something LOL Maybe it would work for a pic?

  6. Joy, congratulations on your son being married. Wow, the Bronco bowl, how fabulous. We actually just drove by it this evening. There is so much to do, I hope you get to get in a little sight seeing while you are here. If you get the chance, go to RedRock Amphitheater... I think you will love it!
