Monday Mayhem

Whew! Finally....a chance to breathe!

I started my day with a 50 minute yoga practice and now I've got yoga brain. I love it! Santa brought me a prepaid Visa card to buy some new yoga clothes for my teacher training. As much as I love Lulu, I can probably get more pieces at Costco. Definitely something to ponder. Do I dare brave the crowds at Costco? Or just walk down the street to Lulu?

My to-do list today includes much cleaning: the kitchen, living room, laundry, bathroom. My house looks like a bomb went off and while I'm no Martha Stewart when it comes to house cleaning, even I have a limit!

I went for a run yesterday. I had to drag my ass out the door, though! Since I hadn't run since the 20th (yes, a whole week--so much for my activity getting me through the Christmas week without a gain), I was good with 40 minutes (my longest scheduled run during the week). I hit 20, the half way mark, and was feeling great, so I kept going! I'd slept in a little though, so I knew I couldn't go much longer than an hour. 1 hour, 1 minute and 1 second later, I'd logged 7.78k and burned 624 calories. Not bad considering I didn't think I'd make 40 minutes!

Total kilometres ran so far: 145.69. Holy moly, Batman!!

This week's goals:
-drink more water!
-enjoy all Jasper has to offer: skiing (downhill and x-country), snowshoeing, shopping, hiking

Have a fabulous Monday!

I got money to buy running clothes with and I went to our local sports store yesterday and bought a $60 pair of Nike running capris. And that was with 30% off. There goes over half the money I got.

Today I'm going to return them and when I get back to Kamloops next week I'm hitting up Costco for some running stuff because I'll get more bang for my buck.

I do LOVE lulu stuff but it's so darn expensive. Although, when I was in Calgary a couple years ago my friend took me to this little shop somewhere in Calgary (near Kensingto? That name rings a bell for some reason) and they had knock-off lulu stuff and I got pants, a shirt and a sweater for $130. NICE, GOOD QUALITY stuff too! I'm still wearing it all, 3 years later!!

Costco stuff never fits me. Boooo. Also, double check but I don't think Costco takes Visa. If you want to use a cc they force you to get their Amex.
