feeling awesome after bikram. the heat literally melted away all my hip and back aches caused by long distance running without warming up, cooling down, or stetching.
flexibility is definitely something i need to work on, but i feel so good. gonna make stretching a compulsory part of my wake up routine.
biked to and from yoga for extra movement. the studio is right by an organic market, so i treated myself to some dark chocolate covered cranberries which i am now going to enjoy with a cup of green tea

WIW 27/03: 166
GW 1: 161
-2lbs from last week. not bad considering the weekend was a bit of a write off. i baked oreo cheesecake, drank wine, and generally just enjoyed being around friends and family without worrying about calories, carbs and the like.
managed to find a few creative ways to compensate for missing the gym, including: garden soccer matches with my lil’ bros, wood gathering, chopping and hauling, and walks on the beach with my bf.
7 mile run yesterday and similar goals for today.
i’ve decided to set out some pro-active and positive “rewards” for meeting my goal weights. instead of “i’ll wear a bikini”, “short short”, or some similar appearance based motivation, i’m opting for fitness and health centred motivation to be stronger, fitter, and happier.
the rewards are:
GW1: 10 bikram yoga sessions
GW2: membership for a pool and tepidarium
GW3: sign up for dublin’s “Rock and Run” half marathon
GW4: personal training sessions or crossfit to work on strength training.
