60 Days 60 Ways

Alright. It’s confession time.

I really love Lululemon clothes. It’s ridiculous. I know all of the lingo, I watch for the uploads (Monday, 9:45 pm PDT in case you were wondering), and I have a serious speed shorts collection. What’s even more ridiculous is the amount of stuff that sits in my closet with the tags still on it or that goes unworn. Admittedly, I also do this with regular clothes too, so downsizing has been a major goal for this year. 

Recently, I’ve started selling a ton on eBay which is totally addictive. In an effort to speed up the process of sorting, my friend KT has come up with a challenge.

60 days, 60 ways for my Lulu collection:

The rules:

1. No same top or bottom combo.

2. Seasonal pieces are excluded since the weather is crazy in Nevada and it won’t be cool enough to use them. (This includes winter jackets, full length running tights, long sleeved shirts, etc.) 

3. Whoever catches a mistake or “throws a flag on the play” determines the “punishment”. Do I have to add another three days to the 60 days? Do I have to remove those articles of clothing from my rotation? Am I banned from wearing neon for a week (Bleh)?

4. At the end of 60 days, I will have to sell *most* of what wasn’t worn. I say most because I’m sure there may be some things that are sentimental – shorts from a race, a gift from the Professor, or something thats super rare.

5. Casual outfits count as using an item.

I started yesterday, August 24th.

I’m hoping this motivates me to get back into a regular workout routine. I don’t want to give things away just because I’m lazy! 

 

 

 

Three Things Thursday

1. I’ve really debated whether I should just delete this whole blog off of the inter webs. At the same time, I’m constantly taking pictures and thinking of things to blog about. So maybe I’m not done after all. And I really miss some of my inter webs-bloggy friends. I also feel a bit out of the loop thanks to the closing of google reader. I’ve tried Feedly (not a fan), bloglovin (it’s okay), and have finally settled into using The Old Reader which pretty much runs just like Google Reader. Time to catch up!

2. I had my first REALLY GOOD weekend in Las Vegas. I’ve really struggled since I’ve been here. My job is stressful, its hades hot all the time (and don’t tell me you love it if all you’ve done is sit in a casino for 3 days on the strip), and its really hard to meet people.

I ended up on a pontoon boat last Saturday with a bunch of really great people. It was the most fun I’ve had in such a long time. I had no idea that Lake Mead was so huge and that it was actually nice on the lake. I’ve only heard it described as a “massive toilet bowl”. Appealing right?

I was pleasantly surprised. Even though I got massively seasick after, it was awesome and I’d do it again in a heartbeat!

3. My birthday was on the 20th and I spent it in Portland (for a work conference). Portland was amazing! I really want to go back. Has anyone else been there? I tried to cram as much stuff as I could in after my sessions but I feel like theres so much more to do. And the weather was amazing. It was so nice not to sweat. :)

So tell me, what have I missed?

This Could Only Happen to Me

I’ve been in a major exercise rut. I’m not particularly motivated to run which is probably due to the fact that I’m out of shape and the trail by my house goes uphill for a mile. I guess I could look at it as hill training but right now it makes me feel like I’m going to die.

I’m already getting off topic.

I signed up for the Shamrock Half Marathon. I’m super excited to go home, run on flat ground, and see my running group. I miss them so much. I really got lucky while I was home. So if you’re in VA find HRR!

When I signed up back in December, my goal was to train well enough to PR. Since we’re 4 weeks out (such poor planning on my part), that’s highly unlikely so I’m switching to plan Z which is to just finish the race.

So in an effort to get back into shape, I decided to branch out and try new things like Body Pump and Spinning.

Good lord, spinning. Everyone I know who takes spin LOVES IT. Sings its praises. I figured if all of my friends love spinning then I’d like it too. Right?

Ehhhh I’m not sold.

Yesterday, I left work early to get to the gym, change, and get in line for class. There were some really nice women in line who assured me that the first class was going to suck but I’d still love it and want to come back for more.

When we got in, the girl next to me helped me adjust my bike (there ARE nice people in Vegas!) but then after we adjusted it and I got on to warm up, we figured out that the bike was broken. Lame.

I hopped over to another bike and barely had enough time to adjust anything. It looked like it would work so I got on and started peddling. I was wearing my minimus shoes because I wasn’t sure if my cycling shoes would work with the bike pedals and it felt really weird to not be attached to the bike.

Not even 10 minutes into class, we started a “sprint”. A few seconds into the sprint, my feet flew out of the pedals which made me pop up out of the seat. Thank goodness I had a death grip on the handlebars. I came back down HARD and broke the seat. I BROKE IT. It was gangster leaning to the left and was tilted down in the front. The crazy spinning pedals also scraped my shin. I was a hot bloody bruised mess in a class where the bike doesn’t even move.

And I rode for the rest of the class on that stupid broken seat.

I’m a talented lady.
