THE workout


quick recap: yesterday I ran 2035927304 miles with a couple of friends. ok, not that many miles. but it felt like forever. we had lunch at a local restaurant afterwards, and i think i drank approx. 3 gallons of water.

i also decided to write in all lower case today

and i got re-certified in cpr last night. my cert from the states is still valid, but the ymca’s in canada require you to get re-certified every 12 months. oof. one good thing i learned: there is no good samaritan law here. aka: i don’t have to help people if i don’t want to. also, they pretty much have a law that says as long as you’re helping others with good intentions, you’re ok. for example: if i drag someone out of the way because their car is going to explode, but in the meantime i break their back- its ok, i can’t get sued. because i was attempted to keep them from danger. i believe in the states i would be sued for trillions.

oh, and we booked a venue for the wedding. anyone out there who knows me personally, it’s july 6, 2013. so put it down in your calendar. you’re invited.

today: pretty low key. i just finished a crap ton of homework. le barf.

i also took layla for a walk to the pet store to buy her a big ol treat. lucky dog.

and, i worked out. obviously.

check this out. my hair is crazy curly. and i found my corpbasics tank! happy lady.
