After an Epic fail of a hockey game (congrats to the US team!), Eric and I slinked off to do WMM2 with our tails between our legs. All was well until we began. My husband proceeded to morph into Richard Simmons. He was doing the most exaggerated poses I have ever seen, pretending he was a yoga master, whirling his arms around, and making loud, breathy noises.
I started with the full plank and crumbled to the ground in laughter at his antics. He started to do the fastest bicycle crunches I have ever seen in my life. I thought he was going to pull a muscle!! It was utterly hilarious.
I. could. not. hold. a pose. for. the. life. of. me.
Need less to say, my abs got a workout, but not in the traditional format! ;)
I concluded two things:
1) My husband is sabotaging me because he wants better abs come Jan 31st.
2) I need to hide a whittle cam in the room.
GAME ON, HUSBAND. GAME ON.
I tried to piece it together, but it is a bit blurry… ;)
‘Cuz us two crazy Canucks might be coming to a city near you!
We found a sale on flights to Florida (Westjet) after months of searching!
The sale was only on for the end of March, so we booked our trip from March 20-April 1st.
We will be staying in Naples with my mom and stepdad. Eric and I are planning on renting a car and road trippin’ around Florida’s coast for a bit too.
I used to live in Florida when I was young, but Eric has never been to Florida before, so it would be fun to do some touristy things for him. I’d also love to plan some blog meet-ups along the way! I’m hoping to find a good deal on a rental car and possibly a couple hotels along our road trip.
73 days of winter to go!
Putting it that way seems long. :(
This is the nicest yoga tote I have ever laid eyes on!
The amazing team from Lululemon surprised me with this awesome yoga tote. I almost died with delight when I opened the box.
Lots of pockets, zippers, straps, and detailing.
As much as I love, love, love this yoga tote, I would love even more to be able to make someone else happy and spread the Lulu love and good Karma.
I am going to give it away to one lucky reader.
Errr…maybe I won’t.
I’m sorry I like it too much. I can’t part with it!
Forget what I said!!!
Ok, ok, I will, I will. ;) Sheesh.
For a chance to win this Lululemon yoga tote:
- Leave one comment below telling me what Lululemon product is at the top of your wish list.
- Also feel free to leave ideas of where we should travel/road trip in Florida!
I will be mailing out this gorgeous yoga tote to one lucky winner. It may or may not be packed with several boxes of 4’Oclock Chocolate Spice Tea.
Contest closes Thursday January 7th at 8:30am EST. Open to US and Canadian residents only please.
On the agenda for Wednesday is a CSD– ‘Crazy Shipping Day’
I meant to mention that I am throwing an Empower (chocolate coffee) Glo Bar in with the Healthy Resolutions Fit Packs. Empower is quickly becoming the #1 customer favourite, so I figured I would include it into the pack too. When you open the Empower package a wonderful aroma of coffee fills the air. It is a great morning bar.
#1 on my list (other than that fabulous bag, of course!) is the racer pullover. Love!
Really anything!!! I don’t own anything from Lululemon!!!
That IS a beautiful yoga tote. Very nice giveaway. The one item I’ve had my eye on at Lululemon is the Canada hoodie (in white) from the “Cool Sporting Event That Takes Place Between 2009 & 2011” line (they don’t have it on their website – I think you can only purchase the items in some Vancouver stores).
Well Sunshine, I am so happy you two were able to find a seat sale to be in the sunshine!!
I have had my eye on the Sport Cardi at Lulu’s…..
the race pullover! or anything for that matter!
Wow! That is one beautiful yoga bag! I would love the run hills pull-over, it’s adorable and functional. And maybe a few more pairs of groove pants….
I looove the remix hoodies! So cute and functional.
AH! What a cute bag! I adore their stuff but I always feel bad spending the money on it. I really want a pair of yoga pants from them because Yoga is by far my favorite workout. (Hence why I’d love the bag!) Maybe I’ll buy myself yoga pants as a reward for running my first 10K. Hmmmm. ;)
I don’t own ANYTHING Lululemon, so I would love to own anything, but I’ve heard their yoga pants are great so I will say yoga pants. That bag is adorable and you are too sweet for offering to give it away as opposed to keeping it. I’d LOVE it!
I just love lulu pants, I have the ones with the stripe around the top, I dunno what they are called, but I live in them and would love to have a couple more pairs! although I am also dying to get a pair of the spandex shorts for working out. That bag is awesome too, love the bright pink!
You’re description of Eric had me CRACKING UP!!!! Love me some Richard Simmons. My friend saw him in an airport once and he had on the short shorts and tank top-that just makes me smile.
As for Lululemon-I’d love a pair of their pants-they look so comfy.
I loveeeeeeeeeeee lululemon, but we don’t have one near us!!! this is fantastic… I would die and go to Heaven if I won this bag!!! Especially since Black and hot pink are my fav colors!!
Sorry no Flordia tips… Never been there!!
The Run: Hills Pullover. Perfect for Project Snow! ;)
I LOVE lululemon.
So cannot afford it though! I have one pair of capris that cost me $90! EEPS!
I’ve always wanted one of their gym bags, of course I would settle with that amazing tote if I won it ;)
I really want the dog walking pants. Fleece on the inside, waterproof that hair doesn’t stick to on the outside. Can’t get much better than that!
I would love any of their hoodies. Their clothes fit so well…I am in love with Lulu!! I have heard good things about the FL Keys! Vacations are so exciting =)
I love the Energize Pant. Being 5’10” it’s hard to find workout pants that are long enough, and these certainly fit the bill!
OMG! I love Lululemon!!!
i absolutely adore gather together jacket. so adorable!
i just went to a lululemon store yesterday and admired their products. would love to own it!
I want the speedshorts for running! If I had a million dollars…..
I really need another pair of the regular length pants. . . maybe because I currently live in the one pair I own and that’s a problem on laundry day!
I would love a pair of regular length pants,all I own are the under wonder pants, which I love but too expensive for me to work out in so i wear them as actual clothing!
That bag is soo cute! I came across your blog about two months ago when I was researching video clips of 30 day shred. I have been obsessed ever since! haha I am in grad school in Lubbock Texas for Speech Pathology. I have shown all my friends the blog and love checking on study breaks :) I am getting married in June so I have been committing to a healthier lifestyle and taking a yoga class! I would love to try out the still pant. They look soo comfortable (I also want to have the align yoga matt in faded zap..I love green). If you can make it all the way to the tip of florida, you should try out key west! It is so fun and has such a great atmosphere. The home of Jimmy Buffett would have to be! P.S. Totally used to do Richard Simmons “sweatin to the oldies” with my mom as a child! ha
I love lululemon too! My favorite item is their groove pant. I wear it aaall the time. :)
That bag is so crazy-cool-funky-hot. I don’t own anything Lululemon, but a sports bra that does the work of covering the “girls” or a nice fitted yoga pant for my height 5’1 would be ideal. :)
As for your trip to Florida, never been there! but in my early teens I would watch MTV during the summers and I’ve always wanted to go to KEY WEST for that matter.
Oh man! luluemon is awesome. I’m lusting after the Remix Lulu Hoodie*SE
I would LOVE a remix hoodie in baby blue!!!
I want the Run: Hills Pullover which looks awesome for colder weather running.
And that yoga mat bag; it’s adorable!
I must must must have the running skirt (in plaid of coarse)! Ive been eying one of these forever Ive always wondered how they stay down while running… If you make it to south FL you’ve got to try this restaurant called Sublime they serve gourmet organic and natural cuisine. You would die, its amazing.
I don’t have anything from them, but I’ve been eyeing their hoodies for sometime!
I’ve wanted a Remix Hoodie forever. I love that the hood is flat so you don’t have that pointy head thing happen!
I think the number one thing on my list is the lululemon yoga pants!! I love that they come in different lengths… I am quite TALL!! I would also love to win this bag!!
Can I just say I have never wanted to win something so badly!! I LOVE this yoga tote! It would go perfect with the new yoga mat I just bought. I am looking forward to my first yoga class in a few weeks!! The very first thing on my list (besides this FAB tote) is the Remix Hoodie. I live in hoodies during my winter workouts and have heard a lot about this particular one! Pick me, Pick me, Pick me!
Very swanky yoga tote! I could definitely do with the lulu remix hoodie. I always get so freezing between workouts and class. It’s so thick and durable and something I can use year round in my neck of the northwest woods. Probably lasts forever!
The whittle cam is a great idea! I tried to get my boyfriend to do it with me and once he saw the plank ups, he X’d it right off the “maybe” list!
I really loved the South Beach area in Floriday. The art deco was really beautiful and those beaches are amazing! I also stopped at the Everglades and saw gators galore, very fun experience!
ohhh i am so addicted to lululemon. i have to limit myself to one piece each season or else my whole wardrobe would just be yoga pants, hoodies and tanks! but i would be sooo comfy and cute! hahaha. anyways, my favorite item that i’m lusting over is the Speed Short. love love love their shorts!!
I’m in desperate need of some Lululemon pants! I’ve heard they don’t fall off when you run! (I obviously have issues…)
I don’t think there is anything from Lululemon I wouldn’t want!
That yoga tote is absolutely gorgeous!
I’m one of those sneaky readers that usually doesn’t comment but man, that’s a nice bag! It just made me come out of lurking mode to hey, I want that bag mode.
I love the Lululemon yoga pants. Very cute but mucho $$$.
I would LOVE a Lulu yoga mat! My current one is so worn it almost has holes in it! :(
Oh my that bag rocks!!! The top of my lulu wish list would have to be some capri pants. I have full pants and two pairs of their running shorts, so why not something in between! ahh I might just have to drop over to their website as soon as I send this comment!
Florida… I have not been there since I have been in grade 8 (to Disney), BUT I am looking forward to seeing where YOU go because I am going there with my fiance for a big family (his fam) reunion in July. We also want to rent a car and take off for a few days. Can’t wait to see where you go!
PS – I saw some older posts saying you grew up in Moncton. So did I! We’re about the same age too, I think. Small world :)
Alright. Angela. Here’s the most Julie-Evans-Lululemon-wanted-item-of-all-time: Wonder Under Tights. Seriously. I told myself after my first half marathon (Aug. 2009 – close to yours!) I would treat myself to a sweet Lululemon “Fit”. But alas, it has not been so. Maybe soon. I want an awesome pair of the Wonder-Unders and a matching tank and jacket. (!!!) In terms of Florida… sorry, but I’ve got nothing — never been there. I am from New Orleans, so I can vouch for the Gulf, but other than that – sorry! Have a fabulous time! Hope I win the sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet bag! xo Julie
The remix lulu hoodie!! sigh.
As for Florida, hit Miami Beach and the Keys…and a visit with all the fabulous bloggers down there if possible! :)
Hmmm let me think…ANYTHING!!! I dont have anu LuLu apparel but would LOVE it!!!
This is off topic sorry but I just watched your CTV (finally) and I am super excited.
I can’t believe they called you Andrea though. You are definitely not an Andrea lol.
Congrats on the interview.
awesome bag. i’ve always wondered why the need for a yoga mat bag but i now understand from the bumps and bruises of my poor mat :(
but anyways i have my eye on a remix lulu hoodie! :D
That bag is fantabulous! Aside from it, my top pick is a pair of wonder under tights. I’ve been following Lululemon’s blog and it seems like the possibilities are endless!
I adore lululemon, but I can’t afford anything there. I really want a pair of the yoga pants because everyone says they fit so well and last forever. Maybe when I win the lottery? :)
On my wish list from Lulu? A pair of lightweight pants..but i’ll take anything as I have yet to own anything from Lulu.. the nearest store is 3 hours away. (sigh).
Whittle your middle? I could barely hold a pose because my abs still hurt from yesterday. Promising so far.
Wow, that Tote is pretty freaking awesome! Do you ship to Oz?? :o)
Wanted to comment about the car hire — Down Under some car companies have extremely discounted prices if you are driving their vehicles back to their original point.. Ie, someone else spent 100 bucks a day to drive from Adelaide to Sydney, and you can hire it for 20/30 bucks a day to drive it back for them.. Not sure if you can do that in the states, but I reckon its worth looking into…
I NEEEED to have the Lululemon running skirt. I neeed it more than I need peanut butter. thats alot BTW :)
I would love a lululemon hoodie or running skirt! But the yoga tote would be nice too…keep renting one from the studio!
What a drool-worthy prize! Lululemon is far too extravagant for my thrifty student lifestyle but I covet a pair of their groove pants. They make your bum look SO GOOD. I have never been to Florida but I have always dreamed of seeing the everglades and zooming around swamps dodging crocodiles. How wonderful that you got a good deal!
