Every so often, I remind myself how lucky I am that I wasn’t born with skinny genes. It meant that I couldn’t eat everything and anything I wanted, whenever I wanted. I had to learn to control my cravings and to understand what it is to eat healthy and exercise so that I can feel good about myself. It’s the reason I’m disciplined and why this is my fifth year without unhealthy fast food. I’m SO happy I’ve had to learn not to stuff my body with junk and that I hardly ever get sick anymore.
Thank you, mum and dad, for making me a chubby kid!
Today was hot and humid, I felt lethargic and unmotivated all day but I still forced myself to go for a run on the treadmill because I knew I’d feel so much better afterwards. Only 6km, but felt much better than I expected to. After my shower, I felt even more amazing.
Endorphins are INCREDIBLE :)
On a final note, I spent Valentine’s Day in Sydney with my best friend and had the loveliest time. Even losing my favourite (and expensive) sunnies didn’t dampen my mood. I’m physically and mentally exhausted from this week, but my brain and heart are smiling and I love it :)
I think I shed at least 10 layers of dead skin in today’s class. First one in about a month, one of the downfalls of not working for over a month!
There are very few things that leave me feeling as amazing as bikram yoga. Even sweating straight out of the shower doesn’t ruin this. Ready to take on the day! And banana bread!
