The right tools for the job

Whenever I’ve heard this before I’ve pictured my husband with a hammer in his hand or a mechanic under the hood of a car.  But I never thought that using my ultra-comfy mat for a hot yoga practice was a bad thing.  However my experience a couple of months ago, where I slid off my mat (yes slid, as in I was very sweaty) was my go-buy-a-hot-yoga-mat alarm.  I purchased my mat over a month ago at the Yoga Show, from B YOGA.

This is from their site (I am doing this review on my own, I purchased the mat, it was not gifted):

B MAT Strong (6mm – 71″), Weight: 5.0lbs
B MAT® Strong offers superior cushioning for the yogi looking for more comfort and support. B MAT® Strong is perfect for those with a higher impact practice, such as Vinyasa, or for those who simply value extra comfort and cushioning during Savasana, Yin or other practices.

Better late, than never

Driving home from Sudbury, Ontario tonight, I thought to myself “is there anything at home that I can have for my lunch”.  Unfortunately, the answer was no.  I shop weekly so ensure that my salad ingredients are fresh and crisp.  That meant, when we arrived home at 8pm, after being away, that I dropped off my DH and off I went shopping.  But, two hours later, groceries purchased, puta away, cooked, chopped, diced and jarred.

All Done!  Super easy salads, Tossed Salad with Chicken & Hot Peppers and Asian Chicken

Trying a new kettlebell workout

I love Friday.  Who doesn’t?  Well maybe people that work the weekend shift.  Maybe they don’t love Fridays, but I start getting that light headed, giddy feeling right about now.  It’s especially awesome since it’s an extended weekend and we’re going to visit my in-laws.  

So, what did you all have for lunch today?  It is Friday after all.  You know, eat-out day.  That one work-day, although others do this every day (ahem), that you can eat out.  I’m not against this by any means.  In the almost year that I’ve worked in my new role, I’ve got out less than 10 times.  Why you ask?  Well have a look at the below picture.  This is why.

One Day or Day One

My scale has found a new temporary home.  OK, well it’s not out of our bathroom, but I did prop it up against the wall.  Previously it was right in the middle of the room.  The scale mocks you from it’s position in front of the mirror, so not only do you weigh yourself (wearing as little as possible), but you get to look at yourself in the mirror at the same time.  Yay me.  But I moved it out of the way to limit my scale check-ins.  Seemed to work.

I realized that I had forgotten to post last weeks clinic visit, so here it is.
