Thursday Thoughts

1. I thought I’d manage to blog before this, but no.
2. I need some Trader Joe’s chocolate chunks AND Click protein powder in my life. Anyone in the States want to be my foodie pen pal and we can ship each other things from our countries that no one else has and make our friends drool over them? If so, you know what I want in my first package. And cookie butter.
3. I almost died in yoga last night. I won’t go into gory deets, but there were several instances in class where I considered running out of the room. There were also several other instances where I swallowed my own vomit so as not to make a scene.
4. I need to hop back on the book-reading wagon. I have pics on my phone of several I’ve found at the bookstore I’d actually like to read. Too bad the only time I do have to read is pretty much on the train/bus, and lately I’ve been opting for cat naps during that time.
5. I’m considering cancelling my membership at my gym (not the one at my office- I already paid the year in full- a whopping $240!). Tyler mentioned since I hardly go to this gym (only use it for cardio equipment, really) it might be worth cancelling and using the funds towards spin/yoga passes. The yoga studio I go to also offers spin classes and the environment is exactly what I’ve been craving. A dark room, loud GOOD music, and energetic instructors. I’m just hoping my wallet doesn’t die from the expense.
6. I have been having SERIOUS digestion issues lately. Things I have to eliminate to alleviate bloat: oats, bananas, chia seeds, flax, greek yogurt, nuts/nut butter, cheese, eggs. I think I’m missing something because I still fick ick to the tenth power. Also, I shouldn’t be considered a ‘healthy living’ blogger if it means I can’t post about above mentioned food items.
7. I finally found some stuff from Lululemon that I absolutely COVET, but they’re only available in the US. Ummm, way to go, Canadian-based company. (It’s ok, I’ll be patient and wait for them to come back to the motherland).
8. All I want right now is a beer. That problem won’t help with #6.
9. I miss my gym friends. All their posts about gym get-togethers make me have a serious case of FOMO.
10. Babies. End rant right there because I could probably insert my foot in my mouth with that one. (Hint: I want them, I hate them, I can’t stand them on FB, but I want to squish them- in a good way. WTF is my problem?!)
11. Adding to EVERYONE ELSE’S complaints about this dang winter, I’m secretly dreading the warm weather because it means leg shaving and toenail polishing. Secret’s out.
12. Speaking of cold weather, there should be a hot smoothie invented to keep my belly warm during the winter. That would probably be REALLY gross though. Insert: coffee, tea, excessive amounts of hot yoga, forcing the dogs to sleep on/around me at all times.
13. I’ve successfully (probably not) worn stretchy pants to work every day for the last three weeks. I dont even bother to wear shirts/sweaters that cover my butt. If I put on enough mascara I think it lessens the offense, no?
