back to bikram

April 4, 2012


I recently returned to The Sweatbox Yoga studio after something like a 2-year hiatus from Bikram yoga. Remember back in the day when I was super into it? I lost a TON of weight, my skin looked awesome and I was super well-hydrated. And for some reason (probably financial – this is an EXPENSIVE workout) […]

food lover’s cleanse: day 3

January 11, 2012


I’m ready to admit that maybe we’re just BAD at breakfast. This morning Heather got up early to caramelize onions for our two-egg caramelized onion omelet and I woke up to their delicious smell around 6:30am and then fell back asleep. Around 7am, I re-awoke to the smell of burning onions and Heather cursing whatever was happening in the […]

food lover’s cleanse

January 8, 2012


So I’m back in Seattle and gearing up to start Bon Appetit’s 2012 Food Lover’s Cleanse. This is not a cleanse in any traditional sense – there will be no fasting, no juices, no consuming an absurd amount of flax seed. It’s simply a two-week plan to cook food that is good for you and […]

day 14 of 30-day challenge: thanks, zeke

May 14, 2010


Just as I was complaining that I’m kind of over this and want my life back, Zeke tells me that well, 30-day challenges are B.S. and that nothing’s REALLY going to happen to me, body wise, though that’s obviously not true because my thigh muscles are like woah and my skin is awesome awesome awesome. […]

day 12 of 30-day challenge: put that one away

May 12, 2010


Never have I ever experienced a class as hot as the one yesterday. Not only did the instructor hold every pose for FOREVER, he moved us through the whole thing with lightning speed and OMG I am such an idiot and positioned my mat next to the window. Normally, the window position is a fine […]

day 9 of 30-day challenge: ouch and follow the rules

May 9, 2010


Suddenly, my left arm won’t go underneath my body for the Locust Pose, and my ankles are killing me during Fixed Firm. I realize that every day of yoga is going to be different, but it’s pretty frustrating to feel like I’m not getting better. Given yesterday’s afternoon and evening activities, I fully expected today’s […]

day 4 of 30-day challenge: everything hurts

May 4, 2010


So after three days of yoga, my entire body hurts. I’m adding the gym back into the routine today (mostly so I can gossip with Uma) and I’m expecting this afternoon’s class to be brutal. However, there was some decent eye candy in the room yesterday, which makes it more entertaining, and 3/5th’s of the […]
