Day 41
6am Bar Method. Another early morning… There was a new instructor in the class who was a bit too loud for my taste that early in the morning. And yeah she made us all shake big time. Going back to bed after the class is just the highlight of my day, or the reason why I get up that early.
Today I dropped off the girls at the daycare and apparently they had an agility workshop and they wanted to see how Vodka would do. She was spectacular apparently. That’s my girl.

Day 39
6am Bar Method. Today is brought to you by “how many dogs is required to finish a cup of yogurt in 5 seconds?” And I would like to congratulate all of us in spring time for surviving this one-hour-less-sleep-Monday. When I left for my class this morning, our oven clock was showing 4.45am. Ouch.
But no matter how tired I am, or how much of a hectic day I have, coming to a loving home makes it all go away.

Day 37
A day off! Wow that felt good, I mean sleeping in a bit. A rest day means no activity really, but it was such a nice sunny day in Vancouver that I had to take my rollerblades out for the first time this year. Vodka and Lilo love rollerblading. Separately of course. I can’t imagine having both of them :) Vodka pulling, Lilo dragging, me in the middle. No thanks.
Today, I sent an email to Saga Humane Society in Belize about volunteering at their shelter. Let’s see what comes out of it. I am actually looking forward to an experience like that.

Day 30
10 miles long run in the afternoon. What a day for kiteboarding in Vancity! The wind was unbelievable. I am still not brave enough to face the Canadian waters in March but I have seen couple of kiteboarders having a blast in the city. I had to run against the crazy wind for 5 miles. It felt like whenever I take a new step, I was going backward, or like being on a treadmill. My way back home was delightful with the wind pushing me forward with every step.

Day 28
Lunch time gym! Crazy stuff! I never go to the gym, I am such a tourist at the gym! i slept in this morning, woke up @4am then decided (yeah really) not to leave the bed and it was 7 when I actually woke up. My motto is “no matter what, sweat every day” so I went to the gym during my lunch break. The gyms smell funny, but hey, I sweated.
Last day of February, it feels like it was just new year’s eve and look, it’s been 2 month already! 2013 is going fast.

Day 24
Midday hot yoga. It’s been a busy busy weekend. Lots happening today; the oscars, brunch with friends, gathering in the rain to raise awareness and showing solidarity. After watching the oscars last night, I decided to write about the importance of appreciation in our life.
I do visual effects for movies in my daily life and it’s something I love doing. No question about it. For those who is not in this industry, we make pretty pictures and make people believe in movie magic.

Day 21
Lunch time Bar Method. Lesson learned: don’t go to the pregnant instructor’s class. Not sure if she is hardcore because she is pregnant, but I don’t remember hurting this much in a Bar Method class before. She kinda killed us all in the class. So today is day 21. Research shows that it takes 21 days to develop a habit. That’s 21 days of exercising in some way every day, 21 days to meditation, 21 days to eat healthily, 21 days doing, 21 days of anything. All I can say, I am used to waking up @5am after 21 days.

Day 19
3miles speedwork with Vodka. So I started my serious training this week, where I follow certain pace. Definitely wasn’t easy to do that on my lunch break today but one thing for sure, Vodka really enjoyed a mid day fast run with me. Let’s see how this quality over quantity running is going to work out for me.

Day 15
Lunch time 3miles run. What a lovely day today in Vancouver! It feels like spring is own its way! The whole city was out and about. I haven’t done many lunch runs before, it always feels a bit rushed but it worked out fine in the end. I mean, having the sun was just blissful.
And talking about being blissful, I am quiet happy that we didn’t get hit by a meteor over here. I was hoping for Optimus Prime to show up, I’ll keep wishing. Or maybe they are here?

Day 14
6am Bar Method. Ouch. 3 days in a row of this with no running in between is hurting me a bit. Good thing, the girls are still pretty pooched from their stay over with Wagababa folks, I don’t need to take them for long walks.
They are all cuddly and cute when they are this tired. I appreciate every moment of it.
Talking about cuddles and cute stuff, happy “spread the love” day everyone.
