I win, I win!

(In Mr. Bean's voice from Rat Race!!)

I probably had one of the best days yesterday...the stars aligned and it seemed everything I have been working on is paying off! For starters I got a call from my supervisor letting my know that I got a promotion! I asked for one back in June and it finally happened!

Next, I had my 2 hour yoga workshop/christmas party. Let me tell you, 2 hours of power yoga is HARD!!! I was a sweaty beast, but I got through it and I felt like all the classes I've been attending really helped! The class was jam-packed...like 4 inches between you and the next person, sooo much body heat going on in that room!

After the yoga session, the owner of the studio held a christmas party with food, champagne and prizes. Another reason all my work attending yoga classes paid off is because I WON 3rd place in attending the most yoga classes since September (I've only been going since Oct!) I got a lulu bag full of goodies:

  • Luon tank from Lululemon
  • Yogitoes Headband
  • Yogitoes skidless towel
  • 5-class pack
  • MountainFlow long sleeve T

I was SUPER excited to win all that cool stuff, plus I won another door prize for a free drop-in class...score! Lululemon was there with a truck show and offering 15% off, so naturally I treated myself to a new shirt that I have been wanting:)

Today I woke up really sore and didn't make it to the morning yoga class I normally attend. Instead, I am going to run intervals on the treadmil after work as scheduled...and maybe a little ST:)


  1. Congratulations on the win!! That is awesome! :)

  2. Congrats -- what an awesome bag of loot! :D

    Let me know how you like the Yogitoes towel -- I've been thinking of getting one myself!

  3. Congrats on your promotion! Looking at getting into yoga beyond that offered at 24 Hour Fitness - do you have any recommendations for a studio in Seattle? Thanks!

  4. Karathon - I have a full-size yogitoes towel and I love it!!! The one I got was a half size...for the hands. I usually don't use mine until I start sweating, otherwise you should sprinkle some water where your hands and feet go...it needs to be a bit damp to work!

    oc2seattle - I go to MountainFlow in Madison Park and I love it. It's power yoga and taught in a heated room (about 80-85 degrees). A couple of other studios I've heard good things about are Yogalife (Erin is great)and Be Luminous Yoga (new studio). You can also go to Lululemon on sunday mornings for a free class:)

  5. Congratulations on the promotion! That is awesome news! You should go buy a lottery ticket with all your luck right now. You deserve it!!!

  6. Thanks for the info, I will definitely be checking these studios out!
