This is a miscellaneous post for you on Sunday night. It feels like 3am, but in fact it's right before 10pm. Coming to you tonight from Knoxville, where I've been for 4 days working on a project that is pretty far outside my realm, but it's been fun. The downside? I'm working 7, 12-hour shifts straight. Since I usually make my own schedule and work when I feel best, these long hours are hitting me hard.
I tried continuing my #yogaaday in the hotel room, which doesn't have lots of floor space. I still plan on finishing the challenge, but I'll do so when I get home later this week and can set up my camera properly. I'm still doing stretches and poses in my room, but it's difficult to take photos. I'm excited to see that the #yogaaday challenge will continue in November. Yay!
This week, I've had to do some walking throughout a facility, but also a lot of sitting. I have been feeling a little out of my element (thus this blog post last week), and self conscious. But today I realized as I walked down a long maze of corridors, I wasn't winded. My feet didn't hurt. I've been wearing my new Merrell Pace Gloves (mine are wide width) and they're ridiculously comfortable, even after being all day in them. I was already used to zero-drop shoes since I wore Vibram Five Fingers to workout in, but these feel even better. Even though I'm feeling a little bit (or a lot) like a butterball, at least my movement and stamina is much better than I realized.
On another note, somehow Gwynnie Bee (the Netflix of clothes) had this delivered to my hotel room.
Inside was this top that I threw on for sushi with a Twitter friend. It's not giving me a great effect in the tummy, but it might have just been my poor pose and photography. I'm going to try to snap photos of the other items tomorrow.
And a reminder: I've got the information on the free 30-day Gwynnie Bee trial here (up to 5 pieces!). It ends October 31, so you better jump if it's something you're interested in!
