I downloaded Windows Live Writer on my laptop and it makes blogging SO much easier! I highly recommend it (then again, I sorta hate the web editor for wordpress).
Sunday afternoon I headed to yoga at the North Charleston branch of my gym (the largest chain of gyms in the Charleston area), only to find class cancelled because the gym only has a few yoga-certified instructors and no one could teach it. Stink because I drove 20 minutes to the gym, waiting at every. single. stoplight. I ended up stretching for awhile and doing some of the weight machines, along with a little ArcTrainer-ing, but still… it wasn’t yoga.
I wouldn’t be so upset, except something similar happened last Friday- I showed up, but no one else and no instructor… no one told me it was cancelled. Then last Sunday the instructor decided she wanted to teach PiYo instead of yoga, which I didn’t mind trying something new because it was similar and we did have a class. I really miss yoga, and I can tell I haven’t practiced seriously in a few weeks. I think I’ll try out a studio on Sunday and see how that goes…
I stopped by Biggby on my way home for some coffee. This place is so good; if you like Frappuccino coffee drinks and don’t like extra calories, it is for you because they can make every coffee drink low-fat or skinny! One of my Florence runner friends, Amanda, told me about it because she went to college in Michigan and they are all over the place up there. I had a very delicious skinny frappe made with caramel, white chocolate, and hazelnut- it’s called a “Bear Cub”, hehe. Good stuff- and almost every coffee drink there can be made under 300 calories, which is pretty neat too.
One of my friends actually told me it’s National Coffee Week… I guess the drink I had was a nice way of ringing it in . Also, I read where McDonalds has free coffee all week which is pretty cool too. I’m definitely not that much of a coffee snob and I think gas station and fast food coffee is tasty too. I’m even going out for coffee and desserts tonight with some friends…
Besides that, I officially started drinking Pumpkin Spice now that the weather has cooled off here. I even had to turn the heater in my car on my way to run, it was about 60 degrees. Plus it feels great for cross country and football. A lot of my friends live in colder areas and probably think I’m a wimp for thinking 60 degrees is cool, but it’s much better than dealing with the insane Lowcountry humidity.
Hope everyone’s doing well! Off to get some work done for my big-girl job, then Body Pumping this evening. Have a good one!
