Boot Camp week 1

I started "boot camp" this week. This necessitates me getting up at 5:15am on mon,wed and fri and meeting at the local fitness center for 45 minutes of cardio/weight lifting. I think there are about 10 of us girls. I made it through the first week, I am sore. But you know what? By 7am I am done with my workout and ready to start the day. Will keep you posted on the weight loss~ Now if I can get up tommorrow and do a cardio workout that would be key ;)

Working on a great new cowl for the shop~~~ coming soon!! Hint it's funky, big , and snuggly!!! I also added a couple of new pieces this week. The mantra capelet and the Agni shrug/scarf combo. They are both perfect for the cold weather season!! I am also honored to have hit 100 sales today!!! Woohoo!!! My 100th customer will be receiving an xtra special thank you gift!
Thank you to all my awesome customers :)

Ok so my random things:
1. I grew up by the beach in New Jersey, I love the ocean, I would swim until my lips turned blue. When I was 10 I got caught in a rip current on a boogie board. I knew not to panic, but that was all I knew. I was far out and close the the jetties (rock formation). My best friend Danny who was 3 years older than me swam out and kept me "company" until the life guards got their act together.

2. I love to cook. My grandmother was the greatest cook/baker on the face of the earth. She taught me many things, including how to make homemade pierogis, the best pie crust ever and rugelah. I miss her terribly.

3. I didn't go to college until I was 27. Post parental divorce I moved out on my own at age 18. I worked in a pharmacy full time and waitressed at night part time. I worked 7 days a week, 12 hours most days. I supported myself. I got it in my head that I wanted to go to school to be a pharmacist and never looked back- failure was not an option. And oh yeah, I had a theme song- doesn't everyone have one of those?

4. I started taking yoga at the insistance of my chiropracter, and fell in love. The girl who hated gym all through grammer and highschool is a certified yoga teacher now :) oh and I love to spin too..

5. When I was growing up I wanted to be a veterinarian, but I knew I would never be able to put an animal to sleep.

6. I love seventies music, I grew up listening to it and I still do :)
