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.
Other than that awesome bag, I would go for the racer pullover for the arm/hand holdey-things, or the empower crop pants. those are my favorite length of pant for working out.
in florida you should definitely see tampa/st. pete’s (i spent all my summers there growing up bc my grandparents used to live there), and orlando. epcot has great restaurants!
I was in Naples last year; the Whole Foods there is the nicest one I have ever been to. We also ate here and liked it: http://www.foodandthought.com/restaurant/. Oh, and they have the original Tommy Bahama’s Cafe but not sure if they have any vegan stuff.
If you road trip and make it out to Fort Lauderdale, you need to go to Sublime: http://www.sublimerestaurant.com/home.html.
I would LOVE to own any Lululemon product. I have never been able to afford any of them, so Ive had to do without :(
Wow, that bag is beautiful!
I’d love a Power Y tank.
My Fave is the Lulu remix Hoodie and full length running pants! The bag is AWESOME!
Its nice to have a trip to look forward to, isn’t it! I enjoy Florida …especially the weather. A visit to Fla. is not complete without a trip to the MAGIC KINGDOM ( The Disney water parks are fantastic, too) If you have the time and are willing to drive the Keys are nice. or Cape Canaveral ( sp?) has a museum like part with air and space stuff…US rockets launch from Cape Canaveral.
Enjoy your day!
I would love a pair of the run: spirit tights so I can run during the very cold winters in Alberta!
Good luck everyone!
Yay Florida!! I am jealous that you and Eric are escaping the Canadian cold.
I love lululemon and the product I am currently drooling over is the race pullover. It would be perfect for running outside. :)
I’d love a lululemon hoodie! they look so comfy and cute!
I LOVE their hoodies — so cute! And those roll-up dance pants? Adorable.
I was recently at Lulumon and wanted a different yoga tote, but this one looks even better!
wow, competition is fierce to win this bag! i can’t remember the specific name of the jacket that i want from lululemon, but it’s a cross train jacket with sealed zippers, water and wind resistant, etc. it’s so perfect! i’ve been eyeing it at my local store forever. that or anything with a cuffin. i’m obsessed.
At this moment? That bag is the thing I want from LuLulemon. SOOOO cool!
I just got myself a Bloom Gym Bag from them with some Christmas money I accumulated. Love it. I also really want some run shorts from them. Can’t afford it though!
Man lots of comments on this post…. Yay for the Lululemon love.
I would love a pair of Wunder Under crops – check out the Wunder Under challenge on their website!
Ideas for places to visit:
– Miami (of course!)
– The Florida Keys
I would love the dog walking pants.
You guys are too cute! That will be so nice to have a vacation :) I love lululemon because everything fits so nice especially for longer legs, absolutely gorgeous tote!!
oooh! the ta ta tamer for the girls! Finally a sports bra in “e”! My daughter used to live in Clearwater…the beach is soooo beautiful! And check out the Johnny Depp look-a-like pirate at the pier. We leave for Tampa on Sunday….hoping the snow here in the northeast stops soon! Though, Florida isn’t much warmer today…ugh! Angela, send some of your “glow” to Florida!
The winter run gloves would be great! My hands freeze in my Target gloves on my Project Snow runs!
Love,Love Lululemon.When I reach my goal weight one of my presents to myself is a shopping trip to Lulu.I Love the shape jackets.You can wear them with so many things not just workout clothes.
I have been eyeing up the remix hoodie. Eventually, I’ll break down and buy it!
A trip to Florida sounds WONDERFUL right now! I’d love to escape the cold Vermont winter for a bit! I’ve heard great things about Captiva Island, near Fort Myers.
I love the Remix Lulu Hoodie! I’m always looking for warm things to wear on my way to the gym :) and this one has thumb holes!! Could it get any better? I’m also headed to Florida at the end of March (keeping my fingers crossed that it’s warm then). I think you should make a trip to Disney World if anywhere haha
I have been dying to get the Wear with all Jacket, but it is sold out EVERYwhere! I have been checking the website over & over! I love my lulu clothes :)
Oh, wow! What a fantastic bag- love to win this one, that’s for sure :) I really want the Lulu Pant II- they look incredibly comfortable- plus, the little side tie is absolutely adorable!
That bag looks fabulous! I don’t know how you can give it away! I would love ANYTHING from LuLuMon.
I’ve been to Florida about a dozen times mostly to Disney which I LOVE. I would also reccomend the Keys if you can get there they are really beautiful and unique!
I would love to win this as a gift to my sister…or maybe with the start of a new year I will give yoga a try myself.
I am glad you found cheap tickets to head south. If I think of anything to do while you are there I will let ya know.
Oh my gosh, that is so nice of you! I love lululemon, but I don’t have anything of thiers … I am still wearing the same “yoga” polyester stretch pants I got in high school! (I’m 25.) I’d also like thier Groove Pant with a pink waistband, but they’re just a little bit out of my price range right now …
Oh what an exciting vacay!! I’ve never tried anything lulu but my roommate was obsessed with their yoga pants! And I think you should obviously travel to Disneyworld while in Florida. Or just make an extra long pit stop to California ;-)
I want the tracker jacket!!
I adore their yoga pants but the bag is adorable too!
I am SO in love with the Tracker Jacket in the bright yellow color. Thank you so much for this giveaway!! :)
I pretty much want anything from Lululemon – love their stuff….but not their prices :(
I agree with many. Their yoga pants make my behind look PERFECT :) — just like this bag would look on my arm!!
Cute cute bag. I don’t own a single item from Lululemon but I would adore a pair of their yoga pants!
I need a yoga bag SO badly. I don’t have one and I can’t find one anywhere that I like. I’ve actually been eyeing the Lululemon Namaste yoga bag, but this one is much better! I would love it and it would definitely motivate me to go to yoga more! :)
Would love that purple pro mat (and the bag of course!!!)
I love the good old-fashioned Classy Classic Gym Pack – very cute! Great giveaway!
Woops, I mean Classy Classic Gym BAG!!
i just bought my first yoga mat over the summer and i love it. i should use it more. i haven’t gone to any yoga classes yet. maybe the bag is what i need for that extra boost ;)
i’d love a lululemon racer pullover. i’ve tried it on and it fits like a glove. perfect. and i like how the sleeves fit to keep the cold air out.
I want the remix hoodie! If you go to Florida you have to do Disney of course! I’ll be there in April, will just have missed you!
I’ve been itching for that Tracker Jacket!!!! ugh, so nice!!
You should hit Siesta Key on the west coast of FL if you get a chance. We used to hang out at turtle beach there when I was little, and often we were the only ones there!
Lululemon is not avaliable in the United States, I wonder why! I wanted a matching yoga pant and top suit from Lululemon but I never wanted to buy it online without being able to try them on.
I live in Florida and go to College in Gainesville, so as a Floridian I know of a bunch of places to go! For one you could visit NASA Space Station at Cape Canaveral,or go to the Everglades and go on tours to see the gators and beautiful wildlife. Sanibel is similar to Naples but also very beautiful. For great places to eat and dance, Miami and particularly South Beach would be a blast! And who could forget Disney World, with the Magic Kindgdom, Epcot, and Islands of Adventure. I hope this was helpful!
Top of my lululemon list is definitely the stretch and go mat strap!
..now, if I only had a beautiful yoga tote to go with it ;)
That racer pullover is just calling my name! But I would definitely say yes to a yoga bag as well – I usually just carry mine to class – how old-fashioned! :)
I want the yoga mat!
You must get yourself over to the gulf side of Florida. If you like beaches (I could lay on the beach all day) you must travel over to Siesta Keys. Gorgeous tropical beaches. You feel like you’re on a Caribbean island!
I’m so jealous because I just absolutely LOVE Florida LOL. Have a blast!
The Ta ta Tamer or the scoop bra!! I need to get these ladies under control!!!
Lululemon is functional and flattering. All of it….and also expensive :) Their remix hoody is my favorite!
Pants, sports bras, tanks or shorts. Oh, or one of the jackets : ) Love lulu!
I would love the All Sports Bra….sports bras are just something that I never really think about buying, even though I should be more!
I don’t know if you and Eric will be travel up in the Panhandle of Florida, but if you do, defintely stay in Destin for a night or two. They have the prettiest sand I have ever seen. :)
I WANT THAT BAG! The colors match perfectly. I don’t own one single thing from Lululemon but looking at the site the #1 thing I would want would be Run Leader Of The Track Jacket! It’s so adorable.
I have been on the look out for a hot tote so that i don’t have to carry my mat all the way to my yoga class ( 10 min walk) and well of course lulemon is BEST! I love their workout pants, bras, and tops ! Ive done a lot of online searching ..i just dont have the $$ for that :P
oooo well i highly suggest going to disneyworld! and then on a shipride to one of the southern islands!
I have to admit, I love their undies-specifically their technithong (there is such a thing!). It is seemless and it doesn’t feel like the thong part hides. I know, TMI, but you asked and I delivered.
oh my goodness that tote is adorable!! love it!!
i have to say i’m a lululemon convert, i used to think it was too pricey, but i now realize you get what you pay for! i wear the stuff 6 days of week to the gym for the past 3 years and NONE of it has worn out!
my current fave would have to be canada themed remix hoodie! represent for the olympics!!
