Now, did I need a pink toque? No, not really....but I didn't have to buy any yarn because I had it at home and I really wanted to get back into crocheting before I started making things for other people (like booties for my friends' new baby.....will post pic of those as soon as they are finished). So consider this.....like a practice piece for future crocheting items!
You may remember that one of the motivations for this challenge was to stop spending my money on stuff so that I had more to spend on experiences. So finally after paying off my credit card from the last shop of 2010 I am now able to start doing fun things like play football, go snowboarding and take on yet another challenge.....the 40 Day Yoga Challenge.
Yep, that's right....last week I joined a ladies flag football team and let me tell you, I am not great....but it sure is fun! I admit I was worried at first whether I could throw a football, but as it turns out I really know nothing about football, because at my first practice I learned that I don't ever need to throw it......just catch it, run and don't let anyone take my flag. Ok..... I thought...... this football thing might be easier than I expected. Then, I tried to catch the ball while running. Hmmm...not so easy after all, but it was my first practice so I will only get better as the season continues. Well, hopefully.
I also hit up ladies night at Seymour Mountain with my friend and although it was superbusy we had a beautiful night and it was tons of fun. Did you know that ladies ride free at Seymour on Monday nights from 6-10pm? Such a great way to start the week off!
I have also decided that 2011 must be the year of the challenge because I decided to try the 40 Day Yoga Challenge starting on March 13. The idea of the challenge is simple.....do yoga once a day for 40 days straight, however, sticking to it for the whole time.....not so simple. According to the website;
So I am really hoping that it I can stick to it because those of you who know me well, know that my mind would certainly benefit from a little 'unburdening', as they call it. Wish me luck!
- Side note: If it takes 40 days to develop or drop a habit.....with this logic, wouldn't that mean that I have already dropped the shopping habit (or developed the no-shopping habit.....depending on how you look at it)? Clearly, the rest of the year should be smooth sailing.....well, that's what I will tell myself anyway!
