finding the time

yesterday after work, my mom wanted me to go to ikea for her and return some unwanted christmas presents. i didn't want to, but it's sort of on the way, and way out of her way, so i said alright.

a person just can't zip in and out of ikea. it's impossible. either the line up for returns is really long, or something catches your eye, and suddenly you are looking at things you never knew you needed until that very moment.

and then it's 7:30 already, and you're starving, but motivated, so you wait until you get home to eat dinner and wolf it down like a hungry fox and then feel kind of worn out and too lethargic to exercise? sound familiar? and not to mention your sleeping patterns are all out of wack since you've basically had the last week and a half off so you are very tired but don't want to go to bed early... just veg out and watch four episodes of true blood online.

that's my excuse for not exercising yesterday. i will have to do something today though! and it's the season premiere of the biggest loser again! that is a little too fast for me. i like that show a lot, but i need a season off. and i'm not going to not watch it... heaven forbid. i borrowed yoga booty ballet from the library, maybe i will do that tonight.


in other news, i tried a friend's wii fit on the weekend, and i can't stop thinking about it. it was really quite fun and entertaining. and i was very sore the next day, and the day after, so it must have been working!

I know how you feel!! And YES Ikea is NOT a place you can just "pop into"...I am pretty sure that Ikea has their own cult...

Anyhoo, LOVE wii fit!! Absolutely adore it!

And yes, a little tired of Biggest Loser...we shall see...

I very much know you how feel! Ikea is a dramatic "errand" - everything from the parking deck, crowds, showcases, etc. - very overwhelming! And, oh yeah, i've been exhausted. Thought it was because i wasn't sleeping well with husband out of town but now i'm like hmmmm, I HAVE been staying up late watching TV... and getting up at the same time... hmmm.

I've never tried wii fit! I'll have to!

I'm boycotting the Biggest Loser this season as well. I figure I can still get a weekly summary from FitSugar if I really want.

I've never been to Ikea! Not sure how I feel about the store they're opening in Winnipeg...

It IS really soon for Biggest Loser. I don't like the couples one as much. I saw that you are going to read Gone With the Wind. Love that book.

Ooooh...True Blood. Don't you just love it?!

OK... omg... I LOVE True Blood... I totally got Dave hooked on it also!!
We watched the first season and I bought ALL of the books... I even made sure to get all original covers... not the HBO cover
love love LOVE it!

Ikea is nuts - I love it, but I'd never go in there
a) alone
b) without at LEAST 1hr to spare

hahaha

I hate the couples format - mostly cause they are frakkin couples, they are PAIRS!!

I can't shop at Ikea because I end up HAVING TO HAVE just about everything I see when I go in there!

I know what you mean about the Wii Fit - I find myself daydreaming about doing the super hula!

I didn't watch BL last night either. I feel like it's on ALL the time!

I've been wanting to try the Wii fit. Scott's been trying to talk me into buying the systme but I just can't imagine spending that much on a game system!
