This week I...

Received a Spring Swap package in the mail

The package included a bright colored paisley purse, a hand knit brown beanie, chamomile tea, honey hand cream, and chewy sweet tarts!

Remember this post where I talked about becoming a citizen? Well on Tuesday, I voted for the very first time! Now I can feel some civil pride =D

I also started a new exercise program. In addition to Yoga 3-4 times a week at the studio, I started following Gina at The fitnessista's Summer Shape Up 2010 program. She's up to week 3 already, but I just started week 1 on Monday. It's pretty much kicking my butt - but I feel great! I like having the list of exercises spelled out for me. I much prefer the "strength" days to the intense cardio "speed" days. I don't think I've sprinted since I was in elementary school! phew! I'm kind of embarrassed to admit it but after 45 seconds of sprinting and I was on the floor!
