The Grayest Sunny Day

It’s funny, I want to start this blog post off with something trite, something like, “Today is just one of those days.” But it’s not. It’s an entirely different kind of day. One I haven’t had before, or maybe one I had so long ago that I’ve forgotten how to recognize it when it arrives.¬†Today…

Extending My Credit Line

Today the Daily Post asks us what the last thing was that we Googled. At work, my Google searches have been pretty straight forward – I’m looking for ¬†New Orleans-based fashion bloggers who might want to cover the event that I’m organizing next week. But earlier today, I was searching for a way to extend…

Day #40: Getting There

I weighed in at 154.6 lbs today! It’s taking awhile, but slowly but surely, I’m heading in the right direction. Today is Day 18 of the 30 Day Bikram Challenge, and I’m a resounding FIVE classes behind (argh). Today is a double down day, another attempt to close the gap a little. I went to…

Day #37: The Hot Room Double Down

Whew! I finally went back to the studio yesterday, and class wasn’t too bad for having been away for a five day stretch. It was supposed to be a double day (to make up for all the classes I missed over the last week) but I didn’t make it to morning class, only afternoon. No…

Day #18: Monday, Monday, Monday

Here we are, seven years down the road, and the media is still milking Hurricane Katrina for all it’s worth. There is nothing worse than getting about a million and one phone calls from concerned friends and family members who demand that you leave your house and run for the hills – when there’s NOTHING…

TKO!

It was a fulfilling day, and I’m proud of my efforts. I’m not so proud of the bug I just accidentally squashed on my computer screen. Those are persistant little guts; it’s all smudgy now. Ick. I made it to Bikram class, and it was a damn good one! My legs are getting a little…

Day #7: A Spoonful of Sugar

Does anyone else eat their scrambled eggs on toast? I just finished pulling together a rather customary breakfast (for me) and realized that I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone else make eggs, then serve them on toast instead of with fork and knife. Am I a weirdo? Crossing my fingers that I’m accidentally doing…

Yoga Extras

Today during Bikram I was having a hard time keeping my mind in the present. It was a tough class; the studio just added a second humidifier, and it was the last class of the day, so it was just a tad over 105 degrees the entire time. Plus, even though I normally love this…

How To Clean Sweaty Bikram Clothes

When I first started doing Bikram yoga a couple of years ago, I was amazed at how much I could sweat. I remember the first time I noticed that my shins were sweating, and being simultaneously scared and amused. Before that moment, I thought sweat was pretty much confined to armpits, backs, and foreheads. What…

Star Studded Hot Room

With all of the vacation planning going on, I haven’t really been keeping up with the blog as much as I’d like. Even so, I’ve still been pretty faithful with going to Bikram class most days. I’ve been making it to roughly five classes a week for the last three, and my stamina and state…
