Time To Get Unglamorous

Ok fine. I was reeeeally dreading the skort.  The sheer uselessness of adding a flap of fabric to Hot Pants falls pretty far outside a town I consider worth visiting. BUT! darnit, I’m happy I gave em a try.

Skorts have turned into the Girl Talk of workout wear. fun and unexpected.  Great to pull on for hours of procrastinating before a jog.  Plus, I’m more apt to do countertop dips and kitchen yoga while waitin around for that 300 calorie bagel to pop up.  which makes me rethink the whole ‘properly dressed around the house’ issue.  It’s just dumb to vacuum in $20 tights, so the skort is earning its keep.

oh and yes, great for running. heh. The extra layer helps with the cooler weather. Keeps my natural insulation well insulated.

So, suck it inner fashion voice!  I’m relaxin.

This is tha remix

Wow. January. so hey, you’re early.

Ran fresh out of patience for listening to my own head voice for bloggy type stuff over the mad holiday week.  Don’t know if I can stand myself for 365 days of this, actually.  tho 2 down! heh.

Thankfully, I’m right on track with the better wardrobe focus.  Successfully made it 48 hours sans pants!  and December was a nice way to switch over.  My reservation at Foreign Cinema did all I hoped and more.  Felt great wearing a new dress and the dinner was lovely! highly recommended.. esp, for a date. lots of cozy nooks and warm candles.

I do think this month will be more challenging.  January is made for layers of flannel.  and Harley was SO right, giving up warm pajamas is the toughest.  I kept my furry Conan boots on all evening yesterday, which did nothing for the favorite nightshirt and tights.. sort of Jen Aniston plays Valeria. non hot.

So now I’m on the hunt for a less humiliating solution for toasting my freezing toes. I am NOT a fan of the fat-footed fluffy slipper.. always hated how your feet look like they’re being partially digested by two house cats. ack!  gotta shop.

oh! and I did my first skort run with beaming pride today (tho my time was not that of a Hyrkanian archer;).  It was a looong 2 miles, but I did it.

and I did it in a skirt:)

Happy New Year Bloggers!

Crystal World with Winter Flowers

Turn my days to frozen hours.  ba-duh-duh

Street Spirit

Finally ordered the dreaded Skort. Maybe it’s the unword what bugs me.. or the ‘ort’. Makes your mouth do ugly things.  I’ll go with ‘jogging skirt’.

have to admit, I don’t HATE it.  Just seems a little on the too-far side to bother. But in my head, it’s sorta preventative.  Having access to running pants invites me to lounge around or run errands before working out.  Unlikely I’ll be tempted to stop for a soy latte in one of these;)

Ackin Like Thay Drunkk

k, lighter mood, obviously;)  Time to start moving forward with Christmas and pantless plans for 2011.

Sooo TODAY! I registered for the 100th running of Bay to Breakers! and I’m more than a little excited.  What better way to celebrate the Year of Legs than with a nekkid event. not to imply Yours Truly will be all skin out, but it’s definitely a golden op to wear something other than the usual lycra capris.

The real wig splitter tho, is WHAT??! it’s gotta be fun, colors n sparkles, and maybe a cape. er, no cape. MAYBE fur? dunno. but I gotta be able to run in it.  I picked corral A this year (whoa.) and I’ve yet to run that fast. ever.  2010 brought me in at 1:08:29 and that’s pretty much the best time I’ve managed so far. but I’m hopeful because..

First – once I lock on it’s done.  I’ll do it, or file my feet down to nubs trying.

B – I just bought a FAB home gym!  not crazy fancy, but still awesome, imo.  Body Solid G6B with.. (best part) a LEG PRESS!!!  is it weird that I get a little flushed when I think about it?  what, I like exercise. it’s a thing.

lastly, I’ll have a friend with me. and his half-effort will blow me off the pavement, so I gotta step it up.  it’s not fair tho. his legs are roughly the length of ME, but still. he better at least look winded when we finish. fake it!;p

anyways, I’m drifting. Costumes! I’m wearin somethin happy. must have skirt, must be bendy/stretchy, must not make me look like Stay Puft.

sounds like a fun web shopping weekend:) post my faves!
