After some thoughtful consideration, I decided to buy a bicycle today. I hate running and walking doesn't seem to give me enough cardio. My legs could definitely use some sort of workout and KS could stand some exercise other than his jogs.
So I am the proud new owner of a Giant Sedona City Bike.
I'm not that confident with my riding - the last time I actually rode one was in Japan and the first day around the city, I fell off my bike, scratched my palms and put a nice scar on my brand new bike frame. >_>; I have yet to purchase myself a helmet and maybe some other night-riding gear. At least the bike was 20% off.
In the meanwhile, I've also invested in some awesome athletic wear. Alright - it's more "yoga" wear, but same difference. I've been looking for pants, both hot pants and capris to lounge around in and do some stretches and exercise. Most of my old stuff has sadly stretched out from overuse and it was high time I invested in some decent stuff. Last year, during my trip to Cali, I purchased a pair of exercise shorts from Lucy - a catalog shop that branched into actual locations around the US. The pair I got have been a staple of my wardrobe since. I wanted to find something similar and did a little bit of research.
Just recently, a lululemon showroom opened in Hawaii - there was a little newspaper coverage and I decided to look further into it. They seem to only open on weekends, but hold free yoga and pilates classes as part of their services. Their online catalog seemed very promising, so this weekend, KS and I hit the showroom to check out the goods.
I picked up 2 pairs of capris, 1 shimmy shorts and 2 pairs of hot pants underwear. So far, so good - and I expect these to last me a number of years. As for the classes, I'm not sure when I'll have the time. T__T; I'll have to see how things go in August.
Well, my mobility is currently still limited to just a bike and my own two legs... although I'm still working on getting some proper driving refresher courses from a friend of my dad's. Summertime is apparently his busy time, so I might have to wait until July or maybe late August, but the sooner the better.
Ah~ June is a very expensive month for me. I expect July will be too. *sigh* So much to do with the time I have.
