Day 23 (Classes 23 and 24): Today was my first double!! I went to the 6am and 530pm classes and wasn’t sure what to expect. Karima had encouraged me to start hydrating for Friday on Wednesday night (and as I mentioned in a previous post: I...―
Day 22: I woke up this morning with the worst kink in my back. I don’t know if I slept in a funky position or what, but my back was NOT pleased when I woke up. I had a track workout this morning and I wasn’t sure that I’d be ...―
Day 21: My mom recently said that the day you don’t want to go to yoga is precisely the day you should go to yoga. Well today, I didn’t want to go. I had a headache when I was leaving work and definitely would’ve gone home if ...―
Day 20: DAY 20!! The end is in sight!! Yes, Sunday was definitely me hitting the wall because I was still in the doldrums of the teens. Now that I have reached the 20s, it’s a whole new ballgame. Just knowing how close the finish is has ...―
Day 19: Well, Sunday fell apart completely for me. I was INTENDING to go to class. All day long I had this intention, but it wasn’t a very strong intention. And as I ran around all day trying to get things done, yet accomplishing very...―
Day 18: Confession – Before the Challenge began, I went to the bank and got one hundred dollars’ worth of quarters for all the laundry I knew would be part and parcel of the Challenge. As it turns out, one hundred dollars was perhaps ...―
Day 17: Another 6am Friday in the books. I’m not really sure where the ability/energy to get up in time is coming from. I can’t decide if I prefer the pre-work or the post-work classes. There are so many benefits to the early class...―
Day 16: “Let’s get comfortable being uncomfortable.” This is on my triathlon coach’s favorite sayings and I think it’s the perfect motto for the Bikram 30-day challenge. So much about the Challenge is uncomfortable...―
Day 15: In the words of the immortal Jon Bon Jovi: “Ohhhhhhh we’re halfway there!” I’m happy to report that I’m feeling good 15 days in. I’m not sure if I will hit a wall at some point over the 15 days to ...―
Day 14: After feeling so distracted during class yesterday, it was such sweet relief to feel so much calmer and relaxed during class today. Work was much calmer today than yesterday and instead of screaming out of the building to get to the ...―
Day 13: We don’t do yoga so that we can be good enough; we do yoga because we ARE good enough. I heard this in a class when I was up in Wisconsin and it hasn’t left me. I’ve been thinking about this a lot ever since because...―
I love having raw quick things in the fridge for snacks. Want something sweet? It’s ...
The time is upon us to be tan and fit. I love this time of year. The best way to get ...
Crock pot cooking is perfect for anyone on the go go go! Well here is a great dinner that ...
