Hip-opening exercises which became almost painful due to the fact that my hips are locked up tight. I'm going to need patience here. I will rest with the fact that the tightness is decreasing even if it is ever so slowly. Also I feel my lun... Read more

I had a really great session today. I am learning a lot about yoga and myself in the process. Today I found an awesome youtube video on how to do Savasana if you have a big butt. Even when I was 115 lbs I had a big butt. I weigh much more than t... Read more

I didn't feel like doing any yoga today. I procrastinated most of the day but then I thought of breaking my streak and how much I'd hate myself and feel like a loser all because I didn't "feel like it". I then got up off my bum and had one of my... Read more

My sister and I did hip-openers. Sigh. My hips need Jesus. At least even though it has been only 4 days my downward dogs are getting better. I sit a lot and thanks t... Read more

Hi! My last blog was over a year ago. SMH. What a tumultuous year it has been too. My mother has been diagnosed with chronic renal failure as a consequence of her diabetes. She's barely 60 so that's hard for all of us to bear. She also has ... Read more

I have been away from this site and from good health for the past seven months or so and in that time I have not only gained back all the weight I lost but I also gained more. I am now 211 pounds which is a figure that I thought I'd never see... Read more

This sounds like a great month to step things up a notch. I am too weak to sugar. I need to fix that. I saw that documentary so I know that sugar is addictive and causes your body to hunt for more sugar by eating more and more food. I... Read more

I had cravings just now but I realised that it was high time for me to start working out before it got too late. After Zumba for an hour and 20 minutes I forgot I was "hungry". If I had been really hungry I couldn't have gone that long. Ne... Read more

I've decided to do things differently this time. Instead of telling myself I should really workout and then talking myself out of it I have decided to set myself a target of 100 workout sessions by the end of October 2012. I started in mid-Augus... Read more
