Making a switch [Food Storage]


I decreased my use of plastics last year and got rid of alot of old gross tupperware.

Found a sale and finally bought a small set by Pyrex made of glass.

It’s BPA Free/Oven Safe for baking/Freezer Safe/Microwave safe/Dishwasher safe

In other words, I can bake something in it, freeze it, microwave it and wash it in the

dishwasher when I’m done and it wont absorb stains or odors. Awesome.

Am I an athlete? [Yoga]

Just came back from Lululemon on Halsted. Wow!

My thoughts:

Two Days Ago:

Free beginners YOGA for Athletes @ the Halsted Store! What!?…. Am I an athlete? …..Does the Army count?….I’ve never been to a yoga class. ….I’m there!

Right Now:

That was amazing!….. My body really needed that….. The teacher was great…. I feel like a new woman…… So relaxed…… Abs a little sore…… Like my body just sighed.

The best part Lululemon was super cool as always and gifted us the mat we worked out on! What!? They had some extra and let me take another.

What else I liked:

  • Everyone was super cool
  • Instructor is funny
  • Free bottle of smart water
  • Upcoming free classes
  • Helpers that came around and assisted you into the positions were great

A few other things:

The instuctor was Alie McManus from Moksha Yoga Center.

Classes like these and more are given at your local Lululemon branch.

The clothes and gear are amazing, functional & stylish I cant say enough about them.

They hem your garment free of charge.

They have an awesome ambassador program.

They sell Men’s and Women’s clothes.

Check them out online, pop into a store or join a class or two, you wont regret it.

Check out my other post on them.

Meet Mikhail Sacha & The Walky Dog

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This guy is Mikhail Sacha.  His middle name is trouble. To keep this big puppy out of trouble I have to keep him tired. This is how its done.

We go for a run as often as possible. Actually he runs and I try to keep up on the bike.

The pole is detachable for when you’re not using it and contains three springs inside which aide in lengthening/shortening the leash & with shock absorption. He hardly ever darts off to the side b/c he’s normally trying to get up to top speed so he runs a straight line. Excellent at tiring him out and keeping him out of trouble when we’re back home. It is easy to attach takes maybe 5 minutes and was reasonable priced compared to other bike leashes which can cost $100 +.

I bought mine here.

New Muscles

Well that what I now have. For 2 Weeks, Twice a week I have been riding a stationary bike. Muscles have been developing along the outside of my thigh. Thats right you CAN count. Its been 4 bike sessions and already I am noticing something happening. How happy am I???  I wonder what else is going to happen to me if I continue doing this?  Lets Find out.
