This year Mark surprised me with a one night stay in a hotel. And boy oh boy was I excited for this one. I left the house this morning around 11 so that I could stop for some gas and free Starbucks' coffee (the one in the January tumbler) and still make it in time to make it to the Goodlife for the 12:15 class. Alas I misread the schedule and the CXWorxs class that I thought was starting, was actually next week. Oh well, I ran on the tread mill and did some weights. After this I picked up some lunch (Thai express) mild tofu curried with veggies which was yummy! At this point I checked into my hotel room. (I love you Mark!!!) and ate my lunch while finding out what I could do in the evening.
I decided to visit Starbucks (again) to get some more free coffee and read some of new book. After this I left and came back to the hotel room, played around on the internet, then got ready for a good workout.
I went back to the gym for 5:30 so I could do an exercise class before the hot yoga I was planning on. The class was pretty cool (not super hard) but a good warm up for hot yoga. "On the ball" used alot of equipment: a ball, a flexi bar, some weights, a mat, and these hand held sand shakers (ug I don't remember what they are callled)... but I did 50 minutes of the class and had fun. The hot yoga was freakin hot... I can't actually remember sweating out so much in a class... ever! So that was good. I am happy to report my calorie burn at 1193!
On my way home I stopped at Mint; an indian bistro and bought some fish (marinated in yogourt and mint) and Thai express for some soup. When I got back to the hotel I chowed down!!! I also opened my bottle or red wine and enjoyed this with my meal. After diner I went for a dip in the hotel hot tub, I brought my playbook so I could read some more. By now it's 11pm, I'm watching some tv and enjoying my red wine and dark chocolat! Tonight I plan on SLEEPING!!!! without waking up :D Tomorrow I'll have breakfast, go back to the gym for a 10:30 yoga fit class and then head home!
Thus concludes my most amazing Christmas present!!!!
