As I walked out the door this morning I was greeted by my neighbour's two West Highland Terriers, they took one look at me and tails started to wag and they were straining on their leash to say hi. They're so cute! I normally don't care for small dogs, I love all dogs but I don't see myself in the possession of a small dog. The thing I like about Westies is that they might be small but they think they're big. What a great way to approach life.

When you're feeling small and inconsiquential always remember that you can play with the big dogs.

Great quote I passed on the way in, "According to my calculations - escalators+slinky= everlasting fun".

After work yesterday I headed over to Roots with H because their yoga stuff was 25% off. Nothing fit right, I felt like a sausage in all the pants. I didn't let it get to me, their stuff is just not designed for short waisted people. Plus there are plenty of companies that make yoga stuff. I also came to the realization that a lot can happen in a month. I have 1 month until the yoga seminar I'm going to.

No more goofying around for me, I'm going to set some fitness goals for the next month breaking it down by week and by day (I think I need to make shorter time frame goals to actually keep at it.) This will include the training for the half marathon, yoga and strength. I've pretty much been maintaining for the awhile and I need to shake things up. Tonight when I get home I'm going to plunk the calendar off the mall and write these goals down. I have two months until my yearly physical and I would like to get a kudos from my doctor too.

I know that to be successful I need to take it minute by minute. Even this morning, I debated over making lunch and thought about buying instead. Then I gave myself a talking to, I had already written my from home lunch in my tracker, so I made my salad. I'm also going to put off buying any new yoga gear until right before I leave for the seminar. The stuff I have now should not be seen in public :)

So on that note, don't beat yourselves up, don't feel like you've failed, don't give up. You can do anything you set your mind to. This weekend find time to celebrate yourself, there's no one out there like you :)

I totally felt like sausage-lady when I was in lululemon a couple of weeks ago...and then I realized that TRENDY yoga wear is not the same as REAL yoga wear, lol.

And I will celebrate myself this weekend - thank you for reminding me.;-)

Aw, what a nice way to end your post, thanks for the smile you've put on my face.. and I hope that you're enjoying your weekend.

As for little dogs, I'm totally a little dog person - more specifically Terriers of any kind pretty much. Those are the ones that generally are small, but believe they can handle it all. Love it.
