I stand corrected

I placed an order for 4 dozen mini cupcakes from Bliss and Co. today as I'm taking them to Fort Mac as a treat for my team. As far as I know there are no specialty cup cake places in Fort Mac, where as Calgary is being run over by them. I asked them if they used shortening or butter in their buttercream. The answer is butter. What threw me is they whip up their icing into mousse like texture so the consistency seemed different to me. Super nice people by the way as opposed to the grumpy people at Crave.

The gym in my building is having some introductory classes before the official opening date and tomorrow is a 45min Ashtanga yoga class. I'm taking my mat to work tomorrow and I'll check it out.

So I'm thinking tonight maybe I'll look for an Ashtanga class on myyogaonline.com as I'm only familiar with Hatha yoga. There are similarities for sure but I'm curious to see if there's a difference. I read somewhere that if you're thinking of your shopping list while doing yoga, you're not doing the right yoga for you. I don't usually think of my shopping list while doing hatha yoga but I have to admit when I go to the community centre class I sometimes do. I think that has more to do with the lengthy description of the poses and not really creating a flow.

Looking forward to Biggest Loser tonight. Who will hit the first 100lbs lost on the ranch for a woman. I have to admit I'm rooting for Tara, I admire her dedication. Yes, she's a bit intense but man she works hard.

I forwarded through the guide on my tv and it looks like next week will be hosted by Michelle and Ali, as I'm guessing this is when Allison has her baby. That will be interesting to see as there in front of them will be two former winners.

Alright that's it for today.
