LeBootCamp makes its mark in Phoenix!

Here I am in the desert for 2 TV shows tomorrow morning.

We fly on an older airplane - in general I get a bit anxious flying, but especially on a 737 (since my accident with a 737-400), and then the pilot proudly announces that this is the very last flight for this plane! We have a very beautiful view of the desert, LOVE! Plus I have the entire row for myself, so I am really comfortable :)

Breakfast: 2 crumpets with 2 slices of turkey ham + 1 lemon juice and 1 sobacha

Between the airport and going shopping to prepare for my shows tomorrow morning, I've accumulated approximately 10,000 steps.

While walking through San Jose airport, I see a lollipop with this translation in French for the Canadian market - sharing the humor here ;)

200 glute contractions in the taxi as always :)

No lunch, as there is nothing available onboard, neither anything at my hotel which is VERY isolated, so that by 5pm I am dying of hunger and resort to the only thing the hotel has - cashew pralines. A caloric bomb but I've got no other solution!

Dinner in a Tex Mex restaurant in the hotel: homemade guacamole and shrimp ceviche + green tea….and I cave in to a Mexican dessert called "tres leches"…a description intended to lure you in…I'll be paying for this with exercise tomorrow :) but for now I enjoy it :)

I do 200 abs in my room and call it a beautiful day!

Your Coach in Tampa, FL for 2 TV shows

Ah Florida...with winter setting in I was hoping to go there! But there are no direct flights from San Francisco to Tampa, so travel takes 9 hours via Detroit...on Delta Airlines old-fashioned planes…ha but your coach is not complaining ;) - I love doing shows so here we go!

The weather is quite hot in Tampa, 80 degrees to be precise, but the locals have their own idea - someone says to me in all seriousness that "it's too cold to eat outside"!

I planned a quick 24 hour trip with a morning show on NBC Wednesday morning. This one is a huge success so much so that FOX calls publicist to see whether I can stay one more day to do another show with them! Since the trip is so long I prefer to make the most of my visit so I stay on.
I make some efforts to go shop for my second outfit, because in the USA you don't want to appear in the same dress twice in a row ;)

Being that Tampa is popular for retirees, dubbed the city for old people, I have an hard time finding what I need! Fortunately Zara and H&M exist in all 4 corners of the world…when in doubt, these are surefire solutions! I finally find a nice dress at just $35 dollars!

As far as food goes, with all the jet lag, I don't have breakfast as I'm not hungry yet, but I get in lunch and dinner…seems whenever I'm on the East coast I end up skipping breakfast….

Fitness-wise, I get plenty of walking through the stores and shopping centers to find the perfect outfit :).
