How has life been treating you lately? Frankly, I’ve been working a lot since the start of the year, and I haven’t really found myself with much time to spare. Boourns!
Is it just me or do you find that long days that require huge amounts of mental concentration are totally draining on the body? I bring this up because I’ve been in court on somewhat intense cases lately, and on those days I come home absolutely beat. Always, I have grand plans to get a lot done around the house, and to hit the gym for a hard workout. And as soon as the adrenaline rush of my day wears out, I’m left trying to stay awake until 9pm.
Just trying to keep it real here.
And so I’ve been trying to take my free-time and make the most of it with some adventures around town!
Here’s what’s been up, lately . . .
This year, I’ve taken it upon myself to make and keep regular registered massage therapy appointments. It’s all part of my plan to stay limber and keep my body in fighting shape!
The best part about my RMTs is that I get them at YYoga Flow – a super yuppy yoga studio in my ‘hood known for it’s cool interiors (check out those light fixtures), selection of classes, and uber relaxing infared sauna. I have another appointment soon, and my plan is to head in early that day and also hit up a yoga class! A double dose of self-care goodness!!!
As always, my little one has been keeping me sane! There’s something about a puppy cuddle that can make a hard day better, or a great moment better!
In the last few weeks, I’ve rediscovered the joy of living room Zumba (courtesy of my Zumba Exhilarate DVDs)!! Man, I love shaking my booty to world rhythms! It makes me happy to no end – kind of like a pure dose of joy! I know, not everyone feels that way about Zumba. In fact, some people even dread it but for me Zumba is my happy place!
Most recently, my little family of three has spent some time exploring Vancouver locations with Danielle (Labels are for Tin Cans)! It’s fun to see some of my Vancouver favourites again! Take the small fishing village of Steveston for instance – I love it there!! And not just because “Once Upon at Time” is filmed there, thus leading to some major geek out moments on my part!
By far the brightest highlight of my last couple of weeks was the Justin Timberlake concert I attended with one of my law school amigas! It was crazy awesome!!!! Seriously, so much better than I ever thought it would be, and I’m totally looking forward to the next time JT comes back to Vancouver! Favourite moment? When the front part of the stage separated, lifted, and then proceeded to travel down the entire length of the arena!!! It was madness and totally got the crowd going!!
Of course, I can’t fail to mention the nom nom nom delicious protein shakes I’ve been having on the daily! I guess you could say I’m crazy head over heels in love with the Blendtec my personal Santa Clauses brought me this year!
Question: So that’s what I’ve been up to lately – what is new in your life amigos? Anything exciting you’re looking forward to in the next little while?
