Last night, I introduced Matt to kickboxing!
I’ve been going to United Tae Kwon Do Academy in Carrboro for a couple months now and I love it! So happy to have found a good kickboxing place here.
This was actually Matt’s very first real “exercise class”! As you guys know, he usually gets his exercise in the form of soccer, biking, hiking, etc.
I think he enjoyed himself 🙂 The classes are a cross between a boot-camp style workout and kickboxing, so they keep you busy! We left very sweaty.
In other news, these pictures were taken using my new point and shoot camera! It just arrived yesterday and I was really excited to try it out. My old camera was about 6 years old at this point and starting to take REALLY grainy/dark/gray-tinted photos, so I decided it was finally time to upgrade. After much research, I decided on the Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS 12.1 MP Digital Camera. (Side note — why do cameras have such long names? Sheesh.)
I was debating between this camera and the Canon PowerShot S95 10 MP, but this one was cheaper and, given the reviews, just as good (if not even better — lighter by weight, better video capabilities, etc.). It was on sale AND I had an Amazon.com credit from selling a textbook awhile ago, so I got it for only $150! Sweet.
Check out this comparison shot I got of our living room — here’s a picture of it using the new camera:
…And my old camera.
Obviously I still love my DSLR for food photography and photography close to home, but it will be really nice to be able to have a decent point and shoot to take with me when I’m out hiking, traveling, etc. — anytime I don’t want to carry anything heavy with me! I was starting to get bummed by how crappy all my photos were coming out with the old point and shoot.
New camera success!
I’m off to my dietetic internship — this morning we’re doing more kid’s cooking classes, and later in the afternoon we’re teaching an older adults heart healthy class, too! Should be a fun time 🙂
Have a great day!
