TGIAF….Thank goodness it’s ALMOST Friday!

Is it me or does this week need to be over already?  I know for most of us it was a 4 day week, but even that has not seemed to help!  I think many of us are coming down with a case of the Winter Blah’s!  I live in Chicago and I have a feeling it is hitting us so hard because we were jipped on having a real summer last year.  I keep trying to remind myself that in about 8 weeks the weather will (hopefully) start getting better!

Something that has made me feel better this week is my stretching!  I try to picture myself on a beach while stretching and pretending that I am warm.  It doesn’t really help, but at least I am trying.  For those of you who are new to the world of stretching, meditating, and yoga, I wanted to let you know that the February issue of SHAPE magazine (On newsstands now with a blonde Katherine McPhee on the cover) has a no sweat beginners guide to yoga!  I wanted to pass that info along in case you wanted to check it out!

Also, if you have an interest  in trying yoga or Pilates, put your zip code in a Goggle search engine (or whichever search engine you prefer.  I happen to believe the guys who created Goggle are absolute geniuses and I am forever grateful to them)….sorry, I digress….Put your zip code into the Goggle search bar along with “free yoga” or “free Pilates” class.  Often times these studios will offer either a free or community donation class where you can donate as much as you would like to take a class.  This is a great way to expose yourself to something new without it taking a hit on your wallet.  Just a little something you may want to look into this weekend.

I am sending you all happy and warm thoughts!  If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, just let me know!

    So…I was a little late starting to follow this blog, but since SOMEone made me feel like a bad friend, I went ahead and subscribed! 🙂 and boy am I happy I did…. I loveeee it!
    Two things:

    1. I love my shredder….I was the queen of ripping old bills to put them in the recycling bin, not any more! Small problem though- I might be addicted to shredding unnecesary docuements, just for the sake of shredding! It helps me release some frusteration… NO COLIN, it’s NOT sexual frusteration!
    2. I LOVE having the notebook next to my bed! I have written down so many things that I would have never remembered!

    Great ideas Dan….nice work GF!
