Good deal?

I'm going to admit something here. I have recently signed up for a somewhat embarrasing amount of the 'daily deal' sites. The ones that offer a new deal every day for usually at least 50% off. I even signed up for one that was specifically for moms even though it does not apply to me at all but they sometimes offer cheap massages.

I was so excited about all of the amazing deals that I purchased three of them three days in a row. None of which I have used yet (I'm planning on using one tommorow though! Taking Rachael for manicures and martinis.... woop woop!)

I think I need help. I need to make sure that I don't spend my entire paycheck on laser hair removal sessions or golf lessons just because they are cheap.

Yoga month

So it's been quite some time since my last blog post but I wanted to let everyone know that I am still alive!!! I've been busy moving, working, and taking time to do some volunteer work. Now that the dust has settled a little bit I've wanted to get into a better routine and I thought yoga would help me be a little more 'zen'. So I'm trying to do yoga at least 5 times a week this month even if it's just for a little bit to get into a good groove and I'm starting to feel better already. Stella likes it too...

Downward facing dog! I've got her trained well! Anyway, I'm just writing this down so that I actually hold myself to it, that and I need to get this blog rollin' again!

I'm all about free stuff so instead of getting a membership somewhere, I'm doing YouTube videos. Tara Stiles has a yoga channel which I have been using. She has great some great quick videos, this is the one I'm doing tonight. I heard about her in a NYT article and I really like her laid back approach. I just cancelled my 24 hour fitness membership because I haven't used it in months so if you guys have any good, cheap, workout advice, let me know!

I'll post some pics of my new place once I get it cleaned up :)
