A few months ago I posted my Fall Focus. It included three “F”s: Finances, Fashion, and Fitness.
Finances have been going quite well. I’ve consolidated a lot of accounts and at the same time discovered the art of travel hacking. But more on that in another post.
My fitness routine has been great. I completed Focus T25 and I’m halfway through a 30-day yoga and stretch challenge. My hamstrings are benefiting from this. I’m also seeing the physiotherapist for my tennis elbow, though I don’t think it’s any better. And after cross-country skiing last week, something tweaked in my knee, so that’s now on the agenda.
As expected, “Fashion” has suffered. What it comes down to is this: I hate shopping. The idea of going to the mall or perusing the internet for articles of clothing are not actions I consider fun or enjoyable. Alas, it is the Black Friday weekend, so what better time to venture to the local mall along with the hoards of others in search of an irresistible deal.
Remembering that my goal was to own a few more nice* pieces of clothing, I entered Express where everything in the store was 40% off. Now that’s my kind of deal! I tried on a few things, including red pants, but eventually settled on the brown version instead. I also bought a white and red checkered shirt. I suppose that I can check off the fashion aspect of my Fall Focus challenge, right? Please say yes.
(* by nice, I mean inexpensive that fits me and is more appropriate for work than my North Face hiking shoes and icebreaker long sleeve base layer. The hiking gear is way more comfortable though…)
