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.

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.
I am dying for the Run:Empower Crop II (cropped pant)!!
Ybor city in Tampa is always fun and a great place to explore! Lots of great shops, cute places, and tons of places to eat & drink! :)
That bag is brilliant!!!!! <3 Great giveaway!
I would absolutely LOVE anything from Lulu! Specifically a Remix hoodie – they look great and so comfortable. One problem though – I’m currently about a size 18 and they’re sizes only run to 12. I’m on my way down (and to a healthier me in 2010) – so my dream of actually fitting into Lulu clothes will someday come true :)
I would love to own a yoga bag like that! I’ve never purchase a lululemon item before, but I’ve been wanting some Yoga pants to wear to my new classes. I used to live in Pensacola, Fl and I love the beautiful white beaches, you should take a trip up that way! Great scenery too.
Drool!!!! That bag is gor-geous! Thank you for being soooooo generous to give it to one of your readers!
Let’s see. I am totally a lulu lover now. I just got one of their Power Y tanks and it fits beautifully. I would love a pair of crops or pants as I have heard how well they show off the assets ;)
Let’s see in Florida I would recommed heading down to South Beach or even the Keys. You will have to go to Orlando to see some of the bloggers and possibly Mickey. If you are heading further North then that I would suggest St. Augustine. I grew up in Florida!
I like anything from Lululemon, but I really want some kind of sweater … I haven’t been there in such a long time!
I would definitely hit up Disneyworld … at least that’s where my husband wants to go in a few years! Have fun!
What a gorgeous yoga bag!
On the top of my wish list is the Still Pant*Brushed*R. They look so comfortable and wonderful for yoga.
Sorry…never been to Flordia!
I would LOVE LOVE this bag,so much ;0)
Definitely love their bags the most, this one included!
I actually have a lulu gym bag (currently sitting under my desk actually), but here is why I need a new one. Cause the strap has been broken for the last 6 months, and I have it tied in a big knot which I need to untie everything I want to get in it. ghetto I know.
Any of their black yoga pants!!! I am too poor to buy such lovely butt huggers but they do look beautiful
I’d really like a new yoga mat from Lulu. As for Florida, I definitely recommend Sarasota and Longboat Key. Have fun!
Good Lord there are a lot of comments here!
What I would love the most from lululemon is a new gym bag. I love my current one so much that it’s literally falling apart. I’m pretty sure I’ll use it until it disintegrates :)
I’d love any of their hats! I live in Colorado and enjoy hiking year-round (even in the winter, brrr). I don’t have a good outdoorsy hat.
As for FL, I think the whole state is great. I think one of my favorite things in the world is watching the sunset over the ocean :-) Have fun!
I don’t own anything from lululemon yet but have had my eye on the “speed skirt” I have been so inspired by your blog and a few others that I have decided to train for a marathon…(starting with a 5K in April) Would love to treat myself with the running skirt to wear on race day. My birthday is next Wednesday….that yoga tote would make my day :)……..I was born in Fl. You should go to Sanibell Island…Beautiful!
I’m surprised you even mentioned the game :P I didn’t watch, but it’s been the hot topic here all day long. Two local boys were playing on the junior team – I feel bad for them!
I just bought a brand new yoga mat that would be purrrrfect for that bag!! I love everything I’ve ever bought from Lululemon, next time I go back I’m definitely picking up a pair of fitted yoga pants!
The very hard to find small purse! I LOVE it and I always threaten to steal my friends!! She is on the look out for it for me!! Other than that I love the capri pants!! Specially as I am 6ft tall so they are meant to be short!!! lol
I have never looked at Lululemon products before as I rarely see men wearing them. So I have looked at them for the first time on line. I like some of their pants particularly the King Fu pants. I have been considering going to pants for the winter as sometimes the gym is cool so pants would be nice. So there is my choice.
Now what I would like to see is a yoga mat that is at least 2 m long. Most mats are shorter than that which while fine for most women is a little short for many men. The typical mat is too short for doing the Cobra and some other exercises. A problem I face every morning during my routine.
Remix Hoodie!!! I love it all!
Definitely the “Boogie On Short” – it’s too cute!! Also, there’s nothing better than lying on the beach with a book and some water or tea… I’d do that ;-) Just make sure sun screen is in the mix!
I would pretty much buy any of their yoga pants or tank tops, but thanks to this post, I just saw the coolest hat ever! http://shop.lululemon.com/Keep_Me_Cozy_Visor/pd/np/500/p/1710.html
Now I want it. But I knit myself, so I may have to try to duplicate it!
That’s awesome about your trip dpwn tp florida around that time.My boyfriend and I are going to Sarasota to see his grandparents around march 30th to the 2nd!!
You and Eric are so cute!
Top of my list is that bag!! As a woman on the go, constantly travelling, it would be great to be able to take my mat along with me to stay in tune with my body.
You are so generous! Keep up with the great posts Ange, I’m such a fan!
That bag is so cute! I have had my eye on a Lulu bag and the Tracker Jacket for a while. I absolutely LOVE Lulu stuff, but I have to buy it strategically! To get my hands on that bag would be awesome!
I want a new workout top! One of the nice blue or white ones
I would love to have any of their running clothes!!! They’re so purdy, but so expensive!
Um, how about EVERYTHING?! Lululemon is my love, second to my hubby. The yoga bag is amazing, but I would be a very extra happy girl for a Power Y tank in any color. They last forever, they dont ride up through a tough power yoga class….they’re pretty much perfection in the shape of a tank top
awesome Id love anything from lulumon. Im esp drawn to their super comfty yoga pants!
OMG – seriously, I was just coveting that exact bag in the Lululemon retail store today. It’s fate I tell you!
Great places in Florida worth the drive – The. Keys. much more secluded and un-touristy than I thought. Also, the Everglades are pretty fun to tour. Watch out, you’ll see alligators!
Please pick me!
definently hit up the keys if you can! gorgeous!
Thanks for such a fun giveaway! I would love any of their jackets/hoodies!
I love the Lululemon “Feel Good Pant”! They are on sale right now in four different colors.. great because they are so versatile.. yoga, running, traveling, or relaxing! The yoga tote is also beautiful.. love the extra pockets and cool design! In Florida, there’s obviously Disney World and the beaches, but I also recommend Florida’s springs for snorkeling, swimming, and cave diving! Have fun :)
this black hoodie is lovely: http://shop.lululemon.com/RunRacer_Pullover/pd/c/550/np/550/p/1760.html
but i’d kill for the very bag you are giving away. goooorgeous.
I love lululemon, but it’s so darn expensive. I would love to have a nice sporty jacket, like the tracker jacket. The tea sounds yummy too.
Florida sounds dreamy. I love Cocoa Beach, it’s really close to Merritt Island, Cape Canaveral, Orlando, and the Indian River.
I’m dying for lulu running gear! The arm warmers especially, but also a winter workout jacket.
This is my first post. I have been following your blog since your appearance in Self magazine and love it. You are such an inspiration! I have tried many of your recipes and love everything I have made so far. Please keep giving me more;)
I have never bought anything from lululemon, but all of there clothing looks great. I would love to own some comfortable and fashionable workout clothes.
As for Florida, if you are going to be there on a Sunday night I suggest Siesta Key in Sarasota. The locals do a drum circle on the beach every Sunday evening. It is a lot of fun to pack a cooler and listen to everyone. If you stay after it gets dark they will do a lot of tricks with fire. A lot of fun for a low key night, plus the beach is the best beach in Florida! You can also head up to Tampa for Bush Gardens or over to Orlando for Sea World. Seamore and Clyde is the best show ever!
I would LOVE a lululemon hoodie! I am so envious of the girls at my school with their warm hoodies. I, like you live in Canada and during the winter I so wish I could have a lulusweater to keep me warm! :D
i’ve been keeping my eye on some sexy jackets at lululemon.com (we don’t have a store in Tucson where I’m from). but now… now THAT yoga tote is at the top of my list.
I am lusting after a pair of lulu hot yoga shorts, since I’m taking a six week class starting next week. Florida is going to be such a great vacation… I would recommend staying in Destin or Grayton Beach for a night or two, I grew up vacationing in Destin every year with my family. The beaches are so beautiful and white!
I want the tracker jacket. (: I don’t have ANY jackets for exercising, and I desperately need one! That yoga tote looks nice too. (:
I want Lululemon’s “Run: Leader of the Track” jacket – so stylish and fun!! The yoga tote looks amazing as well – especially since it’s a New Year’s resolution of mine to begin yoga!
I don’t know a whole lot of places in FL besides the obvious (Disney World, Lululemon, beaches), but I’d love to see a Daytona race!
Hmmm would love a hoodie. We dont have any Lululemons here in Ohio. So jealous!!
I love the tracker jacket! What a cute bag and how sweet to give it away!
It just so happens I need/want a yoga tote! This is the nicest one I’ve seen!
I’m dying to get my hands on the Remix Lulu Hoodie and the Sport Cardi!
Is “ALL” an option? I would have each and every item if I could, but the next item on my list is the “Groove Crop II” with the turquoise band color. I love lululemon!
wow, I would love this tote — it is beau-ti-ful!!! I have not bought anything from Lululemon, but tops on my list would be some yoga crop pants :) I’m going on a yoga retreat next week to St. Lucia — can’t wait!!
Thanks for an awesome giveaway!!
Love the bag! Also would love the Swift Tank in bold blue. While in Florida if you’re near Cocoa Beach try to go kayaking! It was the highlight of my vacation last year – got to see all kinds of neat stuff up close like manatees, pelicans, and dolphins. http://www.kayakcocoabeach.com/index1.html
Lululemon’s clothes are great. I would love to have the Remix LuLu Hoodie.
As long as the place you choose in Florida is warm, who cares which town it is.
The tote is AWESOME. I love Lululemon -but sadly my purchases are few and far between, so any gear I can get my hands on is a real treat. If I had to pick one thing, I would say the Competition jacket, since not only am I in dire need of a jacket for running, but it would also look very chic for running errands after working out.
I would LOVE a LUX remix hoodie in turquoise (sold out online tho).
