At-home exercise and other happenings

Happy Friday! I am sure ready for this week to be over with and especially this day, which has turned out to be quite strange.

Earlier this week, I was feeling pretty lazy in the cooking department and craved pizza all the way home from work. I almost texted Craig to tell him to pick up a pizza on his way home, but I never did. He must have read my mind because he came home with one! I was so happy. What a great husband.

Karma randomly placed his (super cute) paw on my palm when I was hanging out by him. Love this little kitty.

I won some belvita breakfast biscuits from Self magazine and they came in the mail this week. I tried them for the first time and they are pretty good. Definitely not something I will buy in the future though because of the nutrition stats.

More fun mail this week included a letter from my mom's cousin (who we just saw on Sunday). I had written a thank you card to him and he wrote back the same day and sent these two postcards from Munich, Germany that he found after we left his house. They are written in German and I had to try to decipher what they say. This lead to more genealogy research online and more names to add to my family tree that I didn't know existed. 

It was cold about 3 out of 5 days this week, so I decided to workout at home instead of at the gym. One night, I did yoga, danced and did some strength and cardio.

Another night, I tried Gaiam TV out for the first time. I received a free month thanks to Business 2 Blogger and I just started trying it this week. I will blog about my experience sometime at the end of February and give you readers an overview of all of the lovely things you can do on Gaiam TV's website. 

There were lots of Jillian videos to choose from, which made me happy because I find that she is really great at motivating me. 

Well, I blogged on my lunch break today and it's almost over, so I better go catch up on some of your blogs. :) Have a wonderful weekend. I'll be hitting up the mall and Trader Joe's, Orange Leaf for some fro yo and watching the movie Brave, that my co-worker kindly borrowed me.


  1. I saw Brave with my 2.5 year old nephew in the theater. Cute movie. (And he lasted the entire movie too!)

  2. I'm in desperate need of some TJ's, especially some chunky cookie butter!

  3. My daughter has been doing Pilates videos at home--I'll have to try those sometime myself.

  4. I'm waiting for my month of Gaiam tv to start - I'm excited to try it out.
    Let us know how Brave is--I had it via Netflix but sent it back before i watched it.
