30 days and beyond

So I finished the 30-day yoga challenge, but I didn't quite make the 30 classes in 30 days.  Toward the end I hit a rather critical point where I had to decide whether I could really do four classes in two days and what the point of killing myself to accomplish that was.  It was a tough decision to let it go, but I had more on my plate than I could really handle at the time (aka last week).  I feel okay about my decision although it has the tinge of giving up to it.  Quite honestly there was a bit of a battle between the "you can do it!" camp (which often had no idea what else was going on in my life) and the "why would you ever want to do it in the first place?" camp (which equated the challenge with an obstacle) that didn't really help me.

Tomorrow we leave for Vancouver to go to the Olympics, and we'll be posting about our adventures while we're there.  It's kind of hard to believe that we're going, but we will be.  It's pretty damn exciting.  Nonetheless, it's already been a site of tension as many of our friends are politically and socially against the Olympics,   However, what can I say?  We're excited!

Stay tuned for our own Olympic-sized shenanigans coming soon! (Think sports, thrifting, sports, fine dining, protests, sports, and more).


  1. I can't wait to hear all about it!!!

  2. I know many sporty types who are conflicted about the Olympics. You might want to visit the Tent City in the Downtown Eastside to get a fuller context. None of us who protest the games are against sport, or against you having a good time, obviously but we and our colleagues and loved ones have lived to experience the unsavoury side effects which have gone on for seven years and will now continue as part of the Games' legacy. However, this is also an amazing moment of social and political resistance, and the world really is watching. So, yeah, have a great time, and report back - on all of it...
