I set up the mat and some 15 lb dumbbells on the floor and hung a towel on a treadmill- and went to it. Some rotations on the floor were a little over 5 minutes because I wanted to finish out a set. I also had to quit a little early because I started late (was visiting K at her house). I stuck to the slower speeds since I had done the Barbell class that morning, still, after about 55 minutes I had burned 475 calories. I'm pretty please with that. Next time I will give myself 90 minutes to complete the entire workout.
I did edit the incline portion. What I initially has was close to impossible, now it should be doable.
I also did a lot of shopping on Tuesday. I had to work on a project at Tommy's preschool, so I sent Mack to daycare for the day. This left TJ and I free to do something we had not done in awhile-go to the mall. I wanted to go to Lululemon to try on sports bras. This was a pretty big deal and I think I might address the sports bra issue in more detail- so I will save that for another day.
I will say I bought two sports bras and two headbands. I will also say that the total bill was outrageous. The sales woman did take some of the sting out of the $150.00 by telling me how cute Tommy is and giving me a extra free Lululemon shopping bag.
We bought a variety of small items at Crate and Barrel, like this cute measuring thing:
And these spatulas
Here's one in action:
I was hoping to find a purse and was looking at Anthropology. I found this one that I liked, but didn't love
You can't tell from this picture, but it's all beaded. It was pretty heavy and to be honest, I was worried that it would not hold up well. The last few things I bought from Anthro fell apart pretty quickly. I want something that I can carry every.single.day.
I'm glad I didn't buy it, because I was able to go to one of my all time favorites stores later that day, Leon and Lulu, in nearby Clawson. I found my new purse there and I love it.
It's by Skunkfunk. It's a part of their Spring/Summer 12 line, but it does not appear to be available from their online store yet. The staff at Leon and Lulu said they just got it in a day or two ago. They had some other color, but I was drawn to this one. I love how it will go with blacks or browns, and it's made of renewable and sustainable resources and all that stuff.
In the first 24 hours of owning this bag, I revived no fewer than nine complements! I am so glad I bought it. It was also decently reasonable. I think I paid about $80.00 for it. As long as it lasts me through to fall, I'll be very happy with that price.
Leon and Lulu has so many chotchkies, I could stay there all day and I could spend $100 and not actually have purchased anything of actual value! By the way, I didn't know how to spell chotchkies, so I looked it up. I enjoyed Urban Dictionary's definition:
A small piece of worthless crap, a decorative knick knack with little or no purpose.
