Off to Italia

by Jillian on February 28, 2013 · 6 comments

Man, I don’t know what is wrong with me today but I am super anxious and not feeling up to par. I woke up with a queasy stomach, a light head, and sore muscles, which are likely from yesterday’s workout with a personal trainer. He owed me from a missed bootcamp, but at the end, I started to feel nauseous and light headed. I really hope I am not coming down with something because, because my flight to Italy for work leaves in 4.5 hours!

I ended up making it to the gym with Joe, but only did a light workout on the treadmill and bike. I foam rolled a bit and called it a day. I didn’t really have an appetite when I got home, and still really don’t, but I forced down some bland oatmeal just to get something in my stomach.

Honestly, I think it’s nerves because of packing and knowing that I am going to be confined on a 9 hour flight. I spent most of the morning working from home and packing.


Does anyone else get crazy anxiety about packing? What coat should I bring? How should I pack my dress so it doesn’t get wrinkled? Am I going to workout? UGH! I am taking either A. a sleeping pill or B. Xanax, the minute I get on that flight!

In other news, Gus thinks he’s coming with.


He made himself very comfortable (and added some cat hair) in my luggage.

Alright, I’m going to finish up and hopefully eat something before my car service comes. I’ll be posting from Italy (and instagramming, facebooking, & tweeting), so see ya later!

So jealous of your trip to Italy! I laughed at the photo of your cat…why do cats always love to sit on things? Especially things that we need to use, like suitcases or computers?

I often get queasy and anxious before traveling too– I think that’s normal!

Have fun!!!

I have the worst packing anxiety and everyone makes fun of me for it. I usually pack and re-pack my suitcase 300 times because I A) forget what I packed or B) am afraid something on the bottom is wrinkling. It’s giving me anxiety just thinking about it.
