Good morning and Happy Wednesday! or Happy Hump Day! Today should be a very calm day. Lots to do at work, lunch with my mom, and a quiet evening with hubby. Tomorrow is my first 31 party. I am very excited and also nervous. I have been to quite a few 31 parties, but this will be my first as a consultant. Fingers crossed everything goes well.
About a month ago, I posted that Planet Fitness is opening in Knoxville. They are scheduled to open this Sunday the 17th. I dropped by this afternoon to check on their progress and was treated to a mini-tour. I took a few pictures:
To me it looks like they still have a lot to do, but they insist they are opening on Sunday. They certainly have all the equipment installed. TONS of equipment, both cardio and weights. Love that their cardio machines will charge your iPhone/iTouch while you workout. I didn’t get to see the locker rooms, tanning area, or massage area. I will say that the fitness facility is very colorful – all purple and yellow. Only purple and yellow. They will have a 30 minutes express circuit workout area that I am anxious to try. You stay at each station for 1 minute.
The gym is only 2.5 miles from my house and 1.5 miles from my office. NO EXCUSES!

My friend A and I tried Marlin and Ray’s in Knoxville last night for dinner. They have a HUGE menu. I tried the shellfish platter. I thought everything tasted great, although slightly over-priced. I thought our waiter did a terrific job.
We both tried their Island Daiquiri which they call an adult slushie. It was during happy hour and only $4. They also have all you can eat peel-n-eat shrimp during happy hour in the bar. Definitely a must try again.
Since it is Wednesday, let’s end with a cute boy (Happy Hunk Day)! This is Jessie Pavelka. Isn’t he a cutie? I have never seen him in anything, just on Pinterest.
Do you belong to a gym? What do you love about it? Hate about it?
