Well it’s slightly back to reality today.
I had decided to stay one more night on the boat last night as it was so nice and cool for sleeping. I was a little worried about how busy skytrain would be this morning, but it wasn’t bad.
Yesterday my shopping was downtown and covered my need for new workout gear. I love Ivivva which is the kids version of Lululemon. There wasn’t a ton on sale, but I got a pair of shorts and a pair of capris sweatpants. I think I will get lots of use out of both!
I met up with my co teacher today for some shopping. She has bought a cute little Bowler trailer and I promised to make curtains for her. We got lucky and found some ready made curtains on sale that I will adjust to fit the Bowler windows.
My co teacher is so accommodating that we wandered over to the local quay which contains restaurants and shops. I checked out the knitting shop I have been wanting to. It had some beautiful yarn, but the clerk seemed more interested in socializing with a friend than interacting with a customer:( I was hoping to find the tank top that L has, but that kiosk wasn’t there:(
We wandered over to a Mexican restaurant I went to a few years ago. El Santo was awesome and I love the decor!
I ordered the fish tacos which were very good, though I really wanted the guacamole and corn chips. I’m going to need to just go buy some as this is the second time I’ve gone for Mexican and haven’t gotten any:(
We remembered to go back and grab some thread from the store to match the curtain material and I may have dragged her to a gluten free bakery.
We unfortunately have no pictures of the bakery as we had to make a dash across the busy street. There were a lot of choices at the Cloud 9 Bakery that were both gluten-free and dairy free, but I went with the clerk’s suggestion and got a coconut bar. I had it as a treat after my run:)
The last few days my exercise has just been walking this cutie!
She is a Louisiana Catahoula and an absolute sweetheart!
With being home, I wanted to try out a run today as it has been a long time since I ran. I set out along the inlet trail as I figured it would be decently shady. I tucked my left arm into my side and off I went.I had forgotten that I had turned off my audio cues so I ran with music, but no idea how I was doing. It turned out to be a little better than normal, though boy did my arm hurt by the end. Honestly though it probably won’t stop me from running.
This evening, I got a short workout in. It was:
70 jumping jacks
60 mountain climbers
30 toe touches
10 planks shoulder taps.
5 minutes of skipping and then work back up the list.
I had to modify the moves that used my arms, but still felt good getting a workout in:)
Doing laundry, reading and working on my rug have taken my evening. It’s been lovely!!
I am watching Home By Spring.It’s a Hallmark movie with a couple of good looking men in it. I am enjoying it, especially the scenery! I also appreciate how the lead female is portrayed as being very capable at both traditionally male and female tasks. I really love the ending though!!!
