My Wish List
1. Yoga Membership
Our yoga mats on the turf of the Cowboys Football Stadium.
Yoga is something that will always be a part of my life. I love going to classes and being able to feed off of the energy of other yogis in the room. However, it does cost money, so why not put that on my wish list!
For those of you living in Fort Worth, here is a quick guide on some great yoga studios in the area.
Indigo Yoga offers heated and non-heated Baptiste power yoga. It is running a great special right now… $69 a month for UNLIMITED classes. Regularly it’s $17 a class, so you pay it off in 4 classes. I know that I will definitely be going to yoga more than 4 times a month.
Karmany Yoga just opened, and I have already been hearing only amazing things about this studio. It offers two evening classes, which I love! I haven’t been yet, but I can’t wait to go! I love the principle behind the studio: “Karmany is founded on the principle that yoga should be available to anyone, regardless of financial means or skill level…Karmany is a donation-based studio, which means there are no set fees for our regular classes. “
2. CrossFit Gym Membership/Class Packages
You have all heard me talk about CrossFit (see this post if you haven’t). It is the complete opposite of yoga, which makes it the perfect compliment to yoga. With CrossFit, I push myself beyond limits that I never knew existed. Like yoga, I also love the camaraderie from going to a CrossFit gym. Everyone is pushing themselves with you and motivating you, and it only makes me push myself even more.
Before you start attending regular classes at a CrossFit gym, you must go through at least 3 foundation classes where you learn the CrossFit exercises and proper form. Sam and I just finished our foundation classes at Brandt CrossFit and participated in our first real CrossFit workout of the day (WOD)… check out the partner workout!
The guy being carried in the yellow lululemon shorts… that’s Sam.
Sam carried his partner on the way back.
All I can say is…I love it, and I’m already addicted! CrossFit has its own language so simply Google anything you don’t recognize or go to the CrossFit main website for exercise demos.
4. Magazine Subscriptions
I love all the ideas on how to live green and clean.
I love the combination of fitness, health, and fashion.
Amazing recipes and great updates on exciting places/things/events in the vegetarian world.
Or any other magazine having to do with health, fitness, or fashion.
5. lululemon Apparel or Gift Cards
I don’t just workout in lululemon
apparel, I practically live in it… unless I’m in my business attire for work of course. If I could wear their workout clothes everyday, then I would. What I love about lululemon workout apparel is that it’s extremely comfortable and fashionable! And if you order online, shipping is always free! If you purchase items in the store, you get their awesome superhero bag… so you don’t even have to wrap the present! I also take my lunch to work in the smaller version of these bags and grocery shop with the bigger bags.
Their water bottles and headbands make for great stocking stuffers! I love my water bottle…
Yes, that is me… wearing 100% lululemon (except for the shoes) holding a lululemon
“Sweat Once a Day” water bottle while standing in front of Tony Romo’s locker at the Cowboy’s Stadium.
Here is another lovely pic from that fun event. The helmet had zero padding and just wobbled on my head.
I look like a little kid, but that’s okay… it’s fun to be a kid again sometimes! Sam is also sporting
lululemon’s yellow shorts again. He says they are much more comfortable than his other athletic shorts.
Oh yes, and he is also carrying my lululemon bag that I love!
6. Fitness DVDs
I’m going to need some quick, but effective backup workouts for the auditor’s busy season
, which will be here before I know it. I won’t be off work in time to make it to yoga or CrossFit classes during the week, so a yoga/fitness DVD will be perfect in the morning before work.
7. Veggie Brothers Food Delivery
9. For my family to participate in an athletic event with me (yoga, 5K, CrossFit, anything active!).
Last, but not least. This isn’t your normal gift, but this is something that I would ask for that isn’t solely for my benefit, but also for the benefit of the person giving the gift. I started this post mentioning that I would like more time to spend with my family and friends so why not spend that time doing something active!
My Mom’s FIRST yoga class was at the Cowboys Stadium Event.
What a great intro to yoga. Check out her cute lululemon gear too!
10. Other goodies I would like to give…
I wouldn’t just enjoy receiving these gift ideas mentioned above, but I would also LOVE to give them. I love giving presents and helping people live healthier, so why not just do that all at once! Here are some other things I would love to give…
Blondies in a Jar
. A great gift idea from Oh She Glows
. I would like to make these jars filled with all the ingredients you need to make a healthier version of blondies to show that eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring, and it can taste just as good (if not better) than the other, less healthy options.
Well, that’s my list! I hope I got this post up in time and that you haven’t finished all of your holiday shopping yet. Tis the season… give the gift of health! It’s something that will never be outdated, need an upgrade, or go out of style.
With Love, Health, & Happiness,
Question of the Day: What would you like to give/receive this year??
