Oh my GOL – yoga almost killed me today! I went to Celeste’s class and she sure knows her yoga. We did the usual vinyasa flow as a warm up and then a forwards + backwards flow of ups and downs and revolved side angles into reverse dancer at least 3 times on each side. I felt as tired/sick/sweaty as I have after racing a 5K! Today was the first time I had to leave class to refill my water bottle. The class was emotionally wonderful as well. I can’t believe I got to get up on a Monday and walk to yoga class. Only in my dreams.
Upon the end of the 90 minute class I purchased a coconut water. I knew I couldn’t make it home without it on foot!
The walk home was almost cold because I was so very wet! New phone took a pretty good self photo!
After a nice hot shower….there was lunch.
Lettuce, pepper, zucchini, 1/4 a block of raw tempeh, TJ’s Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus, goat cheese and GH Dakota toast.
Yums! Karen and I dined together. We ate at a table, not the floor 🙂
Seltzer. The summer staple.
A lot of you asked why I switched from the iPhone if you can get Gmail on the iPhone.
Remember I am obsessed with all things Google, and I use my phone primarily for emailing. When you get 300+ emails a day (via blog comments and all things blog) and have to have a way to organize them, you need a good system. I use a combo of stars and archiving that the iPhone mail client just couldn’t handle well. If my phone was off for a few hours, I’d have 100 emails to load upon refreshing my mail. I started to use Gmail Mobile so my blog comments would be grouped by post, and that worked ok, but it took FOREVER to load. Same with Google Calendar and Tasks and Docs. They would take a good 60 seconds to load.
With the HTC Aria, it takes 2 seconds for my Gmail to load. And it’s all nicely archivable, starable and in grouped conversations all for me. If you love Gmail, there is just no comparison with Android. I know the 4G iPhone was going to have Archive, but it still had no way of starring comments other than moving them to a folder, which took a while.
I’m also finding this phone is much better at multitasking. I hated having to stop what I was doing to answer> a text. Love that my Google Calendar is on its own home screen. I do miss things about the iPhone, but so far, this Android phone is much more user friendly for the way I work.
I’ve been getting online chores done. Ordered a car charger for my phone, and a case. Booking my flight for the Healthy Living Summit!! I’m arriving on Wednesday to get stuff done (lots of swag bags to coordinate!!!) and leave on Sunday. I’d be happy to share a cab with whoever! 🙂
